- Modified textures:
Improved textures from 8 bits to 24 bits, with a little more sharpness and details.
Improved textures for all maps, heroes, enemies; and almost all objects and weapons.
- Optimized special effects:
· I tried to optimize the special effects, for that the game does not crash when there are many enemies:
· Auras in weapons, some focus of lights added, deleted trails, etc.
· However, the duration of the loads is increased.
This is because of the complexity of the code and the number of elements in the maps, are too much.
· The loads of maps and the Diary (F1) take longer than before. It depends on the RAM memory in your computer.
When it loaded for second time the same data, length of the load is less. For example, restarting a map.
· My computer is 2005.
(Pentium IV 3.4 GHz. 3 GB of RAM. 128 MB ATI Radeon X550. Windows XP 32-bit OS.)
The mod is optimized to play on my computer at full resolution, without lags ni slow motions.
Sometimes, the game will go slow in the maps: if there are many enemies and allies, or many particles, or many lights, or if you use torches.
Fortunately, on a modern computer, the loads are faster and I guess the game is not slow.
- Music modified:
· Music modified to accompany the action of the combats and the environment of the stage.
· The Extras menu contains an option to choose the type of music on maps, "original" or "modified".
The music changes when you load a map.
Some maps have unique changed musics, that you will not hear it in other maps.
(The modified music rights are of their respective authors.)

Hello! Your mod is great. Unfortunately, I get constant crashes when saving / loading:( Are there any planned updates and bug fixes?

Hi! Just wanted to ask if there are any plans to make this mod work with re-release of BoD? I've no idea how any of this works and i understand that it's probably A LOT of work for which you just don't have time, but if it's, maybe, just something simple to tweak it would be great to play this mod on a headache free version of the game.

I will try to adapt the "Hyperborean mod" to the new official version of BoD. If the new version of BoD can run with more memory and there are corrected some memory errors, so it will be great; and the "H mod" will also work better.

Thanks for your kind words. I'm happy that you like it. :)
Well, don't worry, while I can I will continue working on the mod. The mod is software, I'm the one who is alive and who works to finish it... But I understand what you mean... :)
The next version 1.6 and the following, corrected and much more complete, yes I will advertise them more.
I am sorry for so many years of waiting, but there are always other problems to solve in the programming and in my personal life, which make the work more difficult and many times I cannot continue, for a time. Well, I said before that I don't give up.
