@Draconus43077

Hoping to replay this game and finally finish it.
Looking good so far in my initial testing with your mod.
I appreciate the work you've put in for this game.
We could only hope to get a modern The Thing game.

In your "The_Thing_HD" mod, it might be worth mentioning the in-game save/load bug in the "Read Me". Is that something that is just not fixable? It's minor, I'm just curious.

Thanks ;)

Question, (love the mod btw) idk if there was an error or what but the outfits at the beginning seem half rendered. Their hoodies are all white with no texture. Everything else seems fine.

finally some good f* food.jpg

Dude, i'm a fan and haven't been this excited for this universe(/franchise) since 2016 when "Frozen State" game was released (was pretty disappointing, but at least i got a few good hours of immersion worth).

Thank you for the upload, i appreciate your work!

Your very welcome ....its a awesome game that needed alot of love
saddly the orginal devs never made the Thing 2 that was planned they do have art ect online if u google it company folded due to them having to manny projects going...I wish i had the SDK for this game i would make addons with new stories ect

I have Frozen State ehhh dont get me started lol was cool concept Frozen State executed very baddly... I would love to see this game redone on UE4 or even UE5 engine,being a UE4 dev i can almost visualize what it would be like..

Hi, after I installed the HD mods and everything, my game crashes every time I load a save game after I die.
Can you help me with this?

Inside the dinput8.ini, the modder wrote...

[CHEATS]
;Note - load the game only from main menu. The in-game load is bugged and crashes the game.

EnableSaveLoadGame = 1

Without this option set to 1, you can't save from the in-game menu.
