New Version Release!

News 1 comment

Hello everyone. Sorry it took so long, but it's finally done. New project version released yesterday and I hope you like it. First of all, I have to warn you - it don't have any revolution changes on board. Our team is just few not so skilful enthusiasts, and that says it all...) Nevertheless, we've got something to show you:

  • FMV playback in 32 bit color (16 bit in original)

  • Exit to main menu function (F9 key)

  • Autoaim switcher (F1 key)

  • New launcher with Save Paths manager

  • Text alignment fixes

  • Game now fully portable

  • All LQ backgrounds improved by AI with manual refining

I guess, I don't have to explain you the differences between colour depth. Though, I must notice that RE3 has a good bunch of 32 bit graphical resources, such as backgrounds and FMV's, but unfortunately game always display them in 16 bit colour, no matter what you choose in game settings. In this update we can finally see FMV sequences in full colour, however. backgrounds still remains in 16 bit, sadly.

Comparison can be seen here: One \ Two \ Three \ Four

What else... Reset function (F9 key) allows you to exit from gameplay to title, where you can start new game, load previous, or watch epilogues. Autoaim Switcher... By pressing F1 on keyboard you can turn on\off auto aim function, which is turned on by default (choice will not be saved). I also write a new launcher in original style with Save Paths Manager function. This picture should tell you enough how to use it (see online manual for details).


Text alignment fixes basically noticeable in puzzles text positioning. Meanwhile, it related to entire game text, cause in previous version all environment and cut-scene texts was centred by using "fake" empty symbol in the beginning of each line. Now it works completely native as on console versions. Devs simply forget to specify proper indent value from the left corner of the screen. That's how low budget porting works.



Game portability. From now on we no longer needs Rofs.dat archives. After you installed the patch, all game resources will be working from suitable folders, which makes modding process much easier. RE3 also no longer attached to its video folder. So now you can transfer your game folder on flash drive, for example, and launch on another PC without installation. The only thing you need to do is install our codecs..)

For users with modern gamepads I write small solution to fix all problems with their controllers. Go to Advanced Features section in Launcher and apply the fix, but please, read small instruction about it.

We also prepared French and Spanish project versions + special version with English subs for people with hearing problems. Everything's ready basically, it only needs to build an installers. I hope it sees the light in the nearest weeks. Cheers...)

I see. Can you write me on email: ? We can discuss that. Also, I need to specify few things about Japan version, which is impossible without native Japanese speaker. I'll be very grateful for your help.

"5. The game now has full support of XBOX 360 controllers, so you don't need to configure anything.
(thanks to Lexas87)"

Yeah, this mod not only literally broke not only controller support of any kind, but also bricked the keyboard remapping function.

Not at all )) You probably misunderstand something. X360 controller support only means adding extra config profiles to bio3.ini - that's it.

Is there any way to get the game to run in my native 2560x1440p resolution or is the fullscreen resolution 1920x1440p the highest it will run at?

I mean, this is a game from 1999, so everything was designed for 4:3.
