Does not work: no matter what resolution extension I'm trying to use including windowed (while changing color to 16-bit) the KWIPv1.exe process just closes immediately after launch without any error pop-ups.

I had similar problem with "normal" version after installing some other version od kknd2 (from Gog if I remember correctly). If you don't want to uninstall game, try running that patch after only copying (not installing) kknd2 on another pc (or os). Maybe it will help.

Same here, got the german CD-Version and it just closes right after launch. Any Ideas?

no :(
only tested it with Australian version and gog version.
I will try and make it report error message rather than just exit in a future version if I can.

if i would send you the german kknd2.exe or the whole german folder, could you try to rebuild your current v3 to add german support?
would be really cool,

hmmm, I tested it with GOG version and Australian CD version, worked fine for me. I'll have another look.

Thank you very much for this hack tool. :)! It's great playing KKnD 2 with widescreen and hires, and it's easy to setup different resolutions with your tool.

Could you possibly make one for KKnD Xtreme, too?

thanks, you're welcome.
I probably can't do one for kknd xtreme tho as it might be too hard. I think there is already one on the web somewhere tho.

I found an annoying bug !

If you use the screen resolution of 1680x1050 (16/10) then the interface of the right side is not properly click-able. It looks fine, but when you hover the pointer above the interface, like the building bottom, then you have to click further to the left before the game registers the click. So, simple said, the actually interface is offset compared to the visual interface.

See: I.imgur.com

Please note that this resolution is one of the most common resolutions - as common as 1920x1080 - so it'd be nice if you could fix this, somehow.

thanks for the bug report, the problem happens because the game assumes the width is a multiple of 32 pixels. So for 1680 the menu thing is offset from 16 pixels. I'll try to fix this at a later date.

One more bug:

It's happens sometimes when you select (making select boxes) and you have already units selected.

Sorry this is not a bug caused by this hack, but I cannot edit the other post now (5 minute limit). Ignore the one post right above this one.

Me again...

How do I get the original res intervals back for MP? I just want the original values.

'5000' is the normal starting amount in a standard MP match, but I can only choose '3000' and the next interval is a whopping '50000' ?

It kinda ruins MP because '5000' is the standard starting money for a balanced game, and you cannot choose it now. My launch option is just '-width 1920 -height 1080'. Maybe you could add a '-moremoney' parameter ?

:)

the original values are back for version 2 of kwip. As is the option to run at oringinal 30fps.
Enjoy!

@p3040139

It's how it should look like when in the menus or else the menus would be stretched.

Sorry, I'm not understanding how I'm supposed to use Kwip,or rather where I'm putting the resolution and window extensions.

After unzipping, just copy the KWIPv3.exe file into the directory where KKND2 is installed and then use this file to run the game.

Wow, thanks a lot for this! Works perfectly (albeit within the bounds of KKND2's somewhat rigid graphical limitations) and gives this fabulous old game a whole new lease on life.
