Hey, the game crashes when I try to play as Mona and load into chapter 2, part 4. I've reinstalled my game multiple times. It works fine when the mod isn't loaded, but when it is it crashes with no error code or anything.

I have not found a fix yet but if you reload to previous chapter even towards the end it seems to run fine.

If you're talking about this bug Steamcommunity.com (a black "vignette" stuck in the middle of the screen), this is how I fixed it:

1. Download RASMaster (I used it to unpack mp2m files): Softpedia.com

2. After unpacking the mod, look for two files in "HUD" folder - "hud.txt" and "introductionSprites.h" (both can be opened with Notepad).

3. In "hud.txt", look for the line "ConstantSprite". There'll be a "DefaultVertexAlpha 255" setting below it. Change it from "255" to "0" and save the file. This will turn off a black vignette that is shown in cutscenes and outside of gunfights if you use a Widescreen Fix.

3. To fix blood and other on-screen effects being shown in a rectangle instead of the whole screen (like is shown here: Steamuserimages-a.akamaihd.net ), you'll need to edit "introductionSprites.h" in the "hud" folder. There are 4 "IntroductionSprites" you need to edit: explosion_dirt, blood_soft, blood_heavy, blood_death. Look for the parameters "ReferencePoint", "Width" and "Height". Change "ReferencePoint" from "UPLEFT" to "CENTER", and set your native resolution in the "Width" and "Height" (I used 1920x1080 as my monitor only supports 1080p).

4. After you've done the aforementioned edits, create a new mp2m mod file in RASMaster using a "Create" option, and then place this file in the game folder.

There's still a black vignette when you are near plot-related items, but it doesn't bother me as much as the two aforementioned cases, so I keep it in my version of the mod.

Tbh even without the widescreen issues that vignette effect is annoying as hell. Doesn't it have a similar entry that you can lower the alpha to 0?

Either way, thanks for the Instructions on how to fix the other stuff, I had already given up all hope for the widescreen fix lol
