Today I will be succinct, without many screenshots, without talking about life, without talking so much about COVID-19 (about that STAY HOME IF YOU CAN THE PANDEMIC IS NOT OVER AND WEAR MASKS), without putting something in general, just a demo release and basic technical explanations.
Yes, the project is taking more time than expected. (If you don't know why, read the older articles and my life problems) Yes, it is not easy. Yes, we go on hiatus for a time because is hard to make a mod like this. Yes, there are differences in art directions. No, I'm not messing around. Technical question: I changed computers, my old computer was an I3 with an older GTX 1050ti 4gb and 8 ram, running Windows 7.
The old build was made in that rig, in that configs, so... works well in that specs. BUT...
I had the opportunity to buy a better machine (finally some luck in this sad year), now I have an I5, with 16 ram, SSD, and the GTX 1650 4gb. Good isn't it? The problem is that my current Asus motherboard only supports Windows 10, I can't go back to 7 (which for me is still the best Windows). And I guess a lot of people have the same problem To my sad surprise, the mod didn’t run the way I expected and didn’t even allow edits, I had to juggle a lot of texmod builds to make it work, that is, even though the textures were ready, I had to save one by one and redo the .def file again.
I assure you, it's exhausting, to the point that you feel like throwing the keyboard in the trash can, even with the help of notepad ++.
I believe that most people here know how to use texmod or similar programs that allow you load TPF's, the important thing here is: RUN AssassinsCreedIIGame.exe AS ADMNISTRATOR.
Is located in: SteamLibrary\steamapps\common\Assassin's Creed 2
This not work well with Steam and Uplay version ALONE and clear because UPLAY, well, works, but to bypass it you will need a crack, but do it only if you have
I WILL NOT MAKE THIS AVAILABLE. I RECOMMEND THAT YOU BUY THE GAME AND THEN JUST APPLY A CRACK,
IT IS THE ONLY WAY BECAUSE THE UPLAY THAT GENERATES THESE PROBLEMS. BUY THE GAME! I BUY MY VERSION IN STEAM!
Things in this demo:
Main Chars Textures (NPCS_MAINCHARSV3-AMARELO.tpf)
Citizens Textures (CITIZENS.tpf)
SCENARIO_ACII_1.tpf (part 1 of Scenario Textures)
SCENARIO_ACII_2.tpf (part 2 of Scenario Textures)
HUD_AND_EFFECTS.tpf (Improved Hud and Effects)
MODERN_DAYS.tpf (Modern times retexture of characters and scenario)
WEAPONS.tpf (Retexture of some of the weapons of the game)
SPAULDER_E3_BETA2 (The E3 version of Spaulder, replaces the metal Spaulder when you get in Venice)
This is pretty modular, that means, if you don't like the citizens design, the spaulder or the scenario you can load the other tpf's.

OBSERVATIONS: Sorry for the lack of screenshots, I made this because the deadline for a demo and the public demand was high, so, I need to put that in the current stage (for me, far from perfect).
IN THE FINAL VERSION A DETAILED TUTORIAL SHOWING HOW TO INSTALL FOR PEOPLE THAT DON'T ARE FAMILIAR WITH TEXMOD OR SIMILAR WILL BE DONE (I'M NOT SURE IF I WILL MAKE A VIDEO OR A SERIES OF SCREENSHOTS).
ALSO IN FINAL VERSION, MORE SCREENSHOTS, MORE THINGS ABOUT HOW TO FIGHT COVID, AND SOCIAL ACTIONS.
