From Kotaku 2008/20/10: Play The Suffering For Free, Thanks To Your Tax Dollars Midway's pretty alright horror adventure The Suffering can now be had for the low, low price of nothing. Well, close to nothing, thanks to your U.S. tax dollars, because the download of The Suffering for the PC, has been paid for by the United States Air Force. Hey, someone's gotta foot the bill for your 1.26 GB download of a four-year old game and our military forces have obliged. Makes me feel warm and fuzzy about my quarterly tax payments! Sure, the game is horribly dated, graphically — and FileFront has actually been hosting it for a few weeks — but for zero bucks this close to Halloween, we don't want to hear any complaints.

The patch forces the game to always run at 60 Hz, even if you modify Torque.ini. Can you fix that so it allows custom refresh rates please?

Modify Torque.ini at C:\Users\<your name>\Documents\My Games\The Suffering. Everything is read from there unless PerUserConfigAndSaves is set to 0 in global Torque.ini (the one in the game folder).

Why now all my savings don't appear at all? I see in the folder they are there but the game does not recognize them anymore

Saves and config file are read from the appropriate folder in C:\Users\<your name>\Documents\My Games by default. The path to documents folder may be different, depending on the operating system or if the Documents folder was redirected to some other location.

how do you fix it?

Look for The Suffering folder in C:\Users\<your name>\Documents\My Games, you have to move Saves folder in there, along with Unspeakable.cfg file.

Or if you prefer that the game reads saves from the old location, open Torque.ini file in your game folder and change PerUserConfigAndSaves setting from 1 to 0.

Will this fix the constant freezing on the both games?

Make a shortcut from the game exe and add -setup as commandline.

Some settings are in registry. The easiest way to bring up configuration dialog is holding Shift when starting the game.

Does this patch fix the bug related to being unable to view the documents if you don't have Num Pad?

hi was enjoying the game got to the end of chapter 13 going in the lift and it goes up and crashes the game. i did it several times also tried lowering graphics to 640x to see if would work nothing at all. i then decided load saves online but that chapter would not work at all. anyone had same problem. ties that bind the problem could be if you go into the levels folder for chapter 14 titled prison industry, the folder inside only has one file where the other levels have many in there. probably reason it crashes plus i am using the pc version original that came out in 2005.

I have the gog version. Everything was fine, until it froze again and again. The game freezes completely. I downloaded this patch because I thought this would fix it, but its just the same. Any ideas? :(

No, the only freezing bug I'm aware of is the one that happens if you manage to click Yes/No when being asked something after selecting certain menu options while the selected option isn't highlighted (happens if the mouse cursor is at the correct position at the time the question appears and you haven't moved the mouse since).

Something else is wrong on your end, impossible to tell remotely.

This comment is unrelated to this patch but I'm not sure where else to ask, besides this seems to be the only place anyone is talking about this game.

Does anyone know of any trainers/cheat engines for this game available for download? The only ones I could find had viruses.

In Ties That Bind, whenever I modify the FOV to a higher value than its claustrophobic default, the right side of the UI (ammunition, throwing items and flashlight) will end up off-centered. I assume that part of the UI is located at a certain amount of pixels from the left side part that's relative to the resolution.

Is there any way to modify the position of the UI so that it fits an FOV value above 1.0?

I don't see FOV having any effect on HUD, just resolution - higher aspect ratio, further away from the right side of the screen that part of the HUD appears.

It might be possible to alter it with a lot of time and patience. Someone already posted an issue on the GitHub project page where the widescreen code from this patch originates from, but it hasn't been tackled yet because it's complicated.

Installed but main menu is now in 4:3 aspect ratio and the ingame hud is also 4:3. Anyway to make the main menu widescreen again and make it so the HUD icons aren't in the middle of the screen?
