.............................................................................

:: INSTALLATION ::

1-First, install your CD game in Setup Type "Custom" then select all options like [Executable Files] [Game Data] [Movie Files] [Music Files] [StrategyGuide] so it will install all files in your HD and you will be able to play without CD perfectly using this Patch.

2-As this Patch works in all game versions you don't need to install any Official Patch, but if you want to patch your game to the last 1.13 patch wich allows you to play without CD Protection and fix some bugs, install it BEFORE installing KCP Windows 10 Patch. (I added a folder called "(EXTRA) KPC Official Patches" so inside it you will find all old official patches for all languages)

3-Lastly, install this "KPC Windows 10 Patch" inside your "Psycho" folder at: "C:\Games\Psycho" or wherever directory you intalled your game

(Attention: When you play the game create a "New Profile" or else some Patch Fixes will not take effect. You can remove your Old Profiles simply going to "profiles" folder inside your game folder and deleting the ".cfg" files inside it)

.............................................................................

:: KNOW BUGS ::

-Third Person has some limitations like if you Crouch you can only Stand Up if you return to First Person pressing "C"

-In Third Person you can only hit enemies using Melee Weapons if the enemy is at your right side (It will not hit enemies in front of you)

Hello Yahari, ddraw.dll by narzoul is still in development and still is not adapted to all modern hardwares, video cards and monitor resolutions, also maybe the game engine is not compatible to all hardwares so it's not easy to identify the problem, so try removing this ddraw.dll from your game folder to be sure and wait for future updates from DDrawCompat. Please check DDrawCompat page for new releases and test all new and old versions:

Can someone tell me how updating It to 1.12 and 1.13 works?

Every time I try, I get this one application with the words "can only find one thing that matches patching failed"

Using the Win 10 patch itself works fine though "If the game itself Is this quiet then ok"

Hi DraigoDragon you have to find out what is your game language version UK English, US English, or US English Collectors Edition. If you try to install the wrong patch language version you will receive this message.

Also be sure if you installed your game from the CD cause there are some ripped versions that are already patched and so you will receive this message too...

Then to install the patches just place the patch files inside your game folder and run them in order ;)

I can't run the game past the initial launcher after applying the patch (it would run before without this patch but with the color glitches). Now it just crashes to desktop.

Windows 10
GTX 1660 Super
i5 4690k
16GB DDR3

I tried all the software solutions described below. It is something with the ddraw.dll itself.

Hi unfortunately I can't check since it's related to your video card and monitor resolution. It works in Windows 10 and 11 but I can't say about hardware limitations. If you remove this ddraw.dll and the game runs it's exactly that. You can look for newer versions of this ddraw.dll just search for "narzoul/DDrawCompat" that maybe there are newer versions that may work for you

Many thanks to uploader!
I installed this patch and game did not lag any more when hitting enemies. Next, I wanted to find a way for anti aliasing and installed dgvoodoo. Anti aliasing took effect but game started to lag again when hitting enemies. Patch and dgvoodoo install and need one same file (ddraw file? If I remember correctly). So, both do not compatible with each other.
I tried other anti aliasing ways such as forcing anti aliasing via nvidia control panel or using reshade.They even do not have anti aliasing effect.

Could you tell me any anti aliasing method compatible with this patch??
It would be perfect gaming experience if I could play game with both patch and anti aliasing.

Hi thanks for the message, I really don't know if Anti aliasing took effect over old DDraw games or just DirectX games even cause this game engine is also limited to 16-bit color. Another problem could be that this ddraw.dll from this patch is blocking the Anti aliasing feature from nvidia control panel. If Anti aliasing has effect over this game try using the dgvodoo2 without the ddraw.dll from this patch and check the difference. You can also test the game without narzoul's ddraw.dll or dgvodoo2 and check if the nvidia Anti aliasing feature works just for testing

Thanks for fast and kind reply! Could tell me other methods which can solve lags but don't use ddraw file?
When installing dgvoodoo without this patch, dgvoodoo install ddraw file in game installed folder.Dgvoodoo works perfectly removing aliasing but game lags, for example when hitting headless enemy with sword.
Then, when installing this patch to solve lags,the patch also installs ddraw file replacing ddraw file which was installed by dgvoodoo.
As a result, game does not lag but anti aliasing effect disappear. It is like a zero sum game.
So, I need a new solution except this patch. Patch that can fix lags
but doesn't install ddraw file not to remove dgvoodoo-installed ddraw file.

Hi I also have Geforce video card and my antialiasing feature worked over the game using this Patch's ddraw.dll (p.s: I tested over Windows 8.1 so I don't know what happens in win 10 and 11)

So be sure in case your pc have 2 video cards like an Integrated Graphics Card and also the NVidia if your windows is configured to use your NVidia video card as the "primary video card"

Then run "psycho.exe" click at "display" and in "Displays:" options check if the game is using your primary video card

Primary video card = (display)
Secondary Video Card = (//DISPLAY1)

Generally your video card name will not show in this area since the game has not this information in its database, so use the tip above. The option that ends with (display) is your primary video card. The Option that ends with (//DISPLAY1) is your Secondary Video Card

(Also check in NVidia Control if all Antialiasing features are selected to "Override any application setting" instead "Application Controlled" or other values and options)
