Awesome job.

Hi thanks for the message! Yeah it would be nice if someone work over this game improving the graphics, but I think it would be a little bit hard modding KPC since it would need "KPC Tools" that doesn't work in modern Windows, so a modder would need Windows XP to edit the game files

ah is see, that sucks.
not if someone else make a patch or mod
for the old tools work for modern pcs.
that be abit ironic, a patch/mod for modding tools.

and I saw the video format for the game...
no clue what smk is, maybe a outdate video format.

Just checked and my KPC Tools started on windows 10. Upload this version on the Dropbox, try it, maybe it will work for you too: Dropbox.com

I also have a repackaged version of the game in which all the game files are pulled from the .rez archive to the root of the game. This will make it easier to access the game files for their further modifications, but this repack contains the Russian-language version of the game. If interested, search the Internet for "KISS Psycho Circus - The Nightmare Child Rip by X-NET". Unfortunately, all torrent files died long ago. I myself could barely download this version. Therefore, if you are interested - let me know, I will also upload it to the dropbox.

P.S. Sorry for my bad english.

Hi artur91425 thanks for the message, do you know how to use "LithRez.exe" in KPC Tools to extract the game .rez files? When I run it just opens and close imediately. Nice, could you please share your russian version of the game since it will help to mod it I think ;)

LithRez.exe is a console application. Since it does not have a GUI, when the program is launched, it instantly executes and exits. This is normal behavior. To work with this program, you must use the console. Here is an example of using this program. The file "LithRez.exe" and the archive ".rez" (in the example I use KPCPatch.rez) are located in the root of the local drive "C".
1) Open "Command Prompt"
2) Enter "C:\LithRez.exe x C:\KPCPatch.rez C:\test" (without quotes at the beginning and at the end)

P.S. In order not to enter the path to the files manually, just drag the file to the console window.

To get a list of available commands, just run this program in the console without additional options, for example:
C:\Users\artur>C:\LithRez.exe
and press Enter

By the way, this repack has already integrated patch 1.13, and also contains fixes from the author of "X-NET". Of the most important and interesting:
• Fixed a bug with the boss - Fortunado and in the element of fire - Madmen did not walk in a circle, but stood. 100% Can't guarantee. Another bug has been fixed when entering the trigger

Thanks for the tutorial and the shared file man! I tested your tips and "LithRez.exe" extracted perfectly the game files ;) Since KPC Tools is working now I hope in the future KPC has a lot of addons and mods section, since it's a great game and strangely has no mods/addon... Your guide will help many modders to work over it ;)

Thank you for the patch! Works flawless also on Windows 8.1, I use italian edition. I tested it with dgvodooo2 wrapper to solve all textures problems and force AA/AF filters. Ddraw.dll of dege is compatible with your patch :) italian patches aren't necessary with our game edition.

Hi, thanks for the message HellBaron. During my tests in Windows 8.1 I had extremely low FPS in main menu and during enemy combat using dgVoodoo2. The only way to solve it is using dgVoodoo2 with "Application Compatibility Toolkit (ACT)" for Windows 8.1

Same. But dgVoodoo2 is still in development and very fast in latest updates.

Hey, I did try installing from my disc via the instructions in the summary but it still tells me to insert the disc when I try running. Is there anything I could be doing wrong?

Hi, first what is the language of your game? Some languages need the old official patches to be installed first to remove CD protection.

If you installed exactly like in the Read Me intruction, then the only reason is you installed this Windows 10 Patch in the wrong directory. So check if you installed this patch in the right folder: C:\Games\Psycho

(You can check if the "psycho.exe" executable inside the folder is from 07/07/2020, if so it's the right one and the patch was intalled inside the right directory)

So if you installed your game in Setup Type "Custom" and selected all options like [Executable Files] [Game Data] [Movie Files] [Music Files] [StrategyGuide] to install all files in your HD, so I think maybe your CD is corrupted and is not installing all files properly. I'm not sure but as this patch uses no-cd "psycho.exe" this "insert the disc" message should not appear...

I also don't know any tool to convert as the music is not in .wav format like the sound effects...

It doesn't seem to work: when I set the display options and click play in the launcher, the game window pops up for a few seconds, then closes again. When I retry, the display options are back to default.

EDIT: I got it working by using the "dinput.dll" from avpunknown. I also had trouble with AVP2 and I figured since both games use the same engine it would also work for Psycho Circus. It does, the game runs, but now the mouse doesn't work at all.

EDIT 2: I found another dinput.dll on github and now it works!

It keeps crashing any time I try to run it, any idea as to why this would be happening? Is it my res? I'm running a 3440x1440 monitor. I get the music at the main menu and can select my res and hit play, it goes black and stays that way for a minute or 2 and then crashes back to dash.

Hi, it seems incompatible hardware since this game works in Windows 10 even without this patch but you would experience some color bugs in intros, main menu and some lag during gameplay. So if the game is crashing it means your video resolution is not supported.

You can try changing your video resolution manually, for it first delete all your save profiles going to folder "profiles" and deleting all ".cgf" files

Then edit in notepad the file "autoexec.cfg" searching there for the lines:

"ScreenWidth"

"ScreenHeight"

And change them to your video resolution like:

"ScreenWidth" "3440.000000"

"ScreenHeight" "1440.000000"

And save the file

You can test many other resolutions to see if one works ;)

Try activating Directplay like in instructions bellow cause it also happens in other games like Battlefield 1942

If it doesn't work try testing the original game without my patch since this game works in Windows 10 with some color visual glitches. Check also if you installed from a non corrupted CD-Rom, or used some Ripped version cause this patch needs the full Cd-Rom version installed using "Custom" feature selecting all options for every file be installed in your HD. Well as this game works in windows 10 if you don't have success the problem is related with your hardware where your monitor resolution is not compatible with this game, the max resolution i got to test was 1366x768 ant it worked, above it I can't say if it's supported not even know if the resolution limit is related to the game engine or DDraw Compat software used in this patch.

Also you could try disabling Windows DEP (Data Execution Prevention) permanentely, there are many games blocked by this Windows feature like GTA SA, flight simulator and a plenty of other games.
