How to
SCREEN RESOLUTION FIX
New: this should be fixed with the dgVoodoo DX8 wrapper, skip to 'GFX FIX UPDATE' section!

Try setting first Enclave.exe in Windows 7 compatibility mode (if you need help: http://www.windows10forums.com/articles/compatibility-mode.7/ ). Alternative: flag just 'Disable display scaling on high DPI settings'. This should let you select also 1920x1080 32 60Hz now. If still fails read the following...

WORKING solution to force desktop FullHD res: use Microsoft Application Compatibility Toolkit and set the compatibility flag: ForceDisplayMode. Then save the config and "Install" it. https://msdn.microsoft.com/en-us/library/windows/desktop/dd562082(v=vs.85).aspx

1.) Download & install the Application Compatibility Toolkit Setup from here http://www.microsoft.com/download/en/details.aspx?id=7352
(click on Related resources to download Windows 10 version...)

2.) Run Compatibility Administrator, the 32bit version.
It will start with New database(1) [Untitled_1] highlighted.
At the top, click on Fix.

3.) Name the file to be fixed ( I put "Enclave fix" ). Then browse to your enclave.exe file.

4.) Click next, to the compatibility mode screen. Ignore that & next again.
At Compatability Fixes, tick the ones you want, namely:

ForceDisplayMode

5.) Save your DB.

6.) RMB on the DB (it was "New database(1) [Untitled_1]") and choose Install from context menu.

Done.



BOOK INTROS MULTILANGUAGE FIX
The cinematic 5 intros for the Light Campaign and 5 intros for the Dark Campaign are dubbed in English, French, German, Italian, Spanish.
Poor Steam version of Enclave forgot to set the correct language for the intros.

HOW TO:

Edit "...\Enclave\environment.cfg" and add "BINK_SOUNDTRACK=4" for Italian language, 3 for German, 2 for French, 5 for Spanish.

E.g.

VID_RENDER=Direct3D8
XR_SURFOPTIONS=16
VP_FOV=95.000000
VP_FRONTPLANE=0.500000
VP_BACKPLANE=5000.000000
XR_FLARES=0
XR_DLIGHT=1
XR_FASTLIGHT=0
XR_WALLMARKS=1
XR_SHADOWDECALS=1
XR_LODOFFSET=0.000000
XR_LODSCALEBIAS=0.000000
XR_STENCILSHADOWS=0
XR_PORTALTEXTURESIZE=256
XR_SHADOWDECALTEXTURESIZE=256
VID_MODE=1920 1080 32 60
BINK_SOUNDTRACK=4
XR_SPLINETESSLEVEL=1.000000
R_PICMIP0=0
R_PICMIP2=0
R_PICMIP3=0
R_PICMIP4=0
R_PICMIP5=0
R_PICMIP6=0
R_PICMIP7=0
R_PICMIP1=0
R_ANISOTROPY=1.000000
SND_USE3D=1

Enjoy!


GFX GLITCHES, FLICKERING LIGHTS AND TEXTURES
New: This is old! Skip to 'GFX FIX UPDATE' section of this guide!

To fix glitches like these (remember this is an old game engine DX8-based) we can use Wine3D for Windows:



Install https://www.microsoft.com/en-US/download/details.aspx?id=35 (or from http://www.softpedia.com/get/System/OS-Enhancements/DirectX-End-User-Runtime-Web-Installer.shtml ) and then
download the archive with Wine DX8 from this other guide http://steamcommunity.com/sharedfiles/filedetails/?id=391612884
and put the files "d3d8.dll", "wine3d.dll", "libwine.dll" in the same dir of Enclave.exe.
Warning:
Do NOT copy any of these files into Windows\System32, Windows\SysWoW64 or any path included in the PATH environment variable or Windows will no longer work!

EDIT: Since Steam's new policy deleted the link here is the file from Google Drive:
https://drive.google.com/file/d/0B-sHjRQMUHT7Q1NGWk5TWnFvOWc/view?usp=sharing (WineD3D 1.7.12, tested and 100% working)

Done. Enjoy gfx free of ANY glitch/bug on modern systems (tested on Win 8.1, nVidia GTX 980M etc.)

Known bugs:
If you play in 1920x1080 your desktop brightness can be altered after you quit the game.
Current workaround is to run Windows 'Display Color Calibration' tool and press the first button Next... should be sufficient to restore correct colors.



GFX FIX UPDATE (Jul 2017)
Good news!
Voodooman has found another D3D8 wrapper perfectly working with Enclave, that solves also brightness change issues with Windows 10!
All you have to do is to download and use dgVoodoo2[dege.freeweb.hu] wrapper by Dege.
(Alternative link from Google Drive for dgVoodoo2_54.zip if the URL is unreachable: https://drive.google.com/open?id=0B-sHjRQMUHT7SzdnNGkzTURMc0U )

1.) copy from dgVoodoo2_54.zip ...\MS\D3D8.dll in the same dir of Enclave.exe
2.) run just once dgVoodooCpl.exe and on the DX page uncheck 'dgVoodoo Watermark' to disable logo in the bottom right
Done.

N.B.
Today I've noticed some lame AVs report dgVoodoo2_54.zip as malware which is of course false positive. Here is the page of the author: http://dege.freeweb.hu/
where he says "If you encounter a zip having password then use "dege" as password.
Sorry about that but I have to guard against permanent false positive alarms of ♥♥♥♥ing virus killers." so it's aware of usual misreports.

Here is Jotti's report (Aug 2017):
https://virusscan.jotti.org/it-IT/filescanjob/ttdqkieq1i

From Virustotal site it's been reported clean
https://www.virustotal.com/it/file/598ab66b8caa63c3f28cb59606f03970108cb4dd785d97979d43861167ac3280/analysis/1503324226/ by: Kaspersky, Bitdefender, Avira, AVG, Avast, MS Defender, F-Secure, ESET-NOD32, GData, Malwarebytes, Panda, Qihoo-360, Yandex, Zoner among others...

How to remove Microsoft Application Compatibility Toolkit fix
P.S.
Notice: to remove a Microsoft Application Compatibility Toolkit fix, you can uninstall it as usual through Windows default uninstall panel, just the way you do with any other installed program.

Eh, lol. Two years ago I was smarter and somehow fixed lightning problems, but now I'm stuck with that "DirectX 3D device is lost etc".

Final gfx fix for Windows 10 OUT!

Damn.... OpenGL renderer crashes on some levels (e.g. 7 HARBOUR OF ARK AMAR).
This game is doomed by gfx glitches on modern nVIdia gfx cards. There's no exit.

I'm getting weird stutters where my character slows down or speeds up and sometimes i do the jump animation but I don't get off the ground. Any way to fix this?

Another workaround to restore correct desktop palette brightness after you quit the game: open Windows "Display Color Calibration" tool (just type-in 'color calib' in Windows Search/Cortana) and start calibration. You don't really need to change it but you can quit right after 'Next' button: it should restore original brightness immediately...

Just installed Win 10 official edition, and now I CAN reproduce the brightness issue when quitting Enclave. Manual workaround ATM: re-open nVidia/AMD panel and play with color settings just to give back color control to video drivers settings

Added direct link to the Wine3D.
I don't have strange palette messed up (colors, brightness...) symptoms on my Win 8.1 x64, fullscreen. Strange. Try not to use full-window but fullscreen.

Thanks, fixed lights and textures, only problem I got is after exit the game, screen brightness is heavily increased so I have to restart windows, but its ok

to get "d3d8.dll", "wine3d.dll", "libwine.dll" google - wined3d.exe

also to those who have increased speed in the game. its because Report Rate of the gaming mouse, I lowered report rate from 1000Hz to 125Hz and it fixed problem completely
