This is awesome! Can't wait to see what other plans you may have for the future! RE5 has always been one of my favorite RE titles and it makes me happy to see patches and other modifications to the game to make it just a lil' bit better. This made my friends and I's day as we all play maluc's 4P mercenaries mod however, that mod has serious connectivity issues but it is worth the wild if all 4 players can budge through a session without disconnecting. Would love to see if you could work some things out! Appreciate you and your work! :)

I miss that launcher / patch where you can choose the biohazard logo, speeches, 4 players in mercanries, etc. I think was called mml or something like that. Now i need to use speeches via Trainer -_- and i hate it. I don't wanna use the trainer lmao

Also I can test out the patch when it has been updated. I've sent you a friend request.

we are 4 players, so when patch will be updated it will be our pleasure to test it.

@Lord Protektor Yep, I already fixed the issues and I'm testing it out. The new one should be out very soon. Send me a friend request if you'd like to test it out, too.

Hi there Rick. Is it possible to look into this issue, so basically I’m using this:
To play splitscreen for this game, however if I use the latest mulac’s patch or your online patch, the game wouldn’t open at all. The problem seem to happen when launcher.exe is replaced with either yours or mulac’s patch.

Quick run through on the splitscreen.
It modifies steam_api.dll to bypass steam check so multiple instances can open. From then onwards the app that is slowly in development called NucleusCoop, which allows you to configure how much players and their screen positioning. It used LAN to its advantage.
Now since it uses x360ce to help controllers assign/focus on specific instance, I seen in the log that x360ce generates, it always “InputHook Shutdown” when it can’t launch using yours or mulac’s patch.

If you need more details you can add me and we can discuss it.

@Rick Nice, I didn't think maluc was still working on this stuff. I don't see him around on the forums or anywhere in active communication.

As far as the path finding issues, that's actually not a factor for us with the older version with MML.exe. Many of us use the trainer in conjunction with MML.exe which automatically applies all of these fixes and features from the most recent maluc patch and we have the ability for more amazing things beyond the maluc patches with the trainer like "No Mercy ENHANCED 4P Slayers" and other great stuff. The only huge obstacle with mml.exe has obviously been the instability and disconnects lol. (Which I always I suspected has something to do with Capcom ruining the netcode somehow rather than the mod.....and now you may possibly prove me right)

Rick, we're rooting for you on the RE5 Discord! If you pull this off, I'm putting you on blast! lol ...because believe it or will be making a gigantic contribution for the RE5 community.
RICK  [author] Aug 6 @ 7:56am 
@Dinner Supreme, well, I'm aware of the issue, since a lot of people ask me to port it to function with the mml version. I'd have to speak with maluc about this, first, because maybe he's porting his mml to this version. I've never had plans on porting my patch to that other version, though, since it has a lot of path finding issues.

Rick, first of all....great job if you really finally resolved the long time problem of disconnects with 3p-4p that Capcom somehow screwed with this port of Gold Edition (and on modded custom stages)....A lot of us appreciate it.....

HOWEVER: Is it possible you can apply the same online fixes to an older version of the maluc.dll (particularly mml.exe AKA "4P Mod" which allows 4p mercs, I'm pretty sure you're aware). If we can have stability with this and other forms of 4p fun then it's a Grand Slam!
