Probably the scariest game of its time unfortunately became less terrifying as the technology grew older. Not so much the art, but the loss of immersion on modern widescreen monitors caused by the lack of high definition resolution options.
Support for high definition resolutions have been added along with a few very minor tweaks and adjustments to bring the game back and scary as ever for those wanting to enjoy the original survival horror, like myself.
This update addresses four main issues (v1.3.2):
- adding HD widescreen resolutions upto 1920x1080.
- getting it functional under Windows 7 - 64bit.
- being able to turn the crosshair on / off.
- saving "com_fixedTic" to the configuration file.
