Silent Hill Homecoming graphics enhancements and tweaks

Postby yamibito » Sat Sep 03, 2016 10:17 am

1. ENB series graphics enhancement patch (original location http://enbdev.com/patch_sh5_v11.htm)
2. Button Icons Replacement/ Film Grain Remover patcher (original location: https://steamcommunity.com/app/19000/di ... 320393870/)

Tip: To avoid loading screen freeze bug DO NOT use any of Windows compatibility modes and play the game with NO administrator privileges.

We shall be free; the Almighty hath not built
Here for his envy, will not drive us hence:
Here we may reign secure; and, in my choice,
To reign is worth ambition, though in Hell:
Better to reign in Hell than serve in Heaven…"

I just found this fix/hack tool for SH5...

Silent Hill Homecoming PC Fix v1.0 by Steam 006

Features:
- Allow 60 FPS
- Window mode (Recommended) - didn't work for me
- Patch hard-coded 720p resolution values
- Patch the resolution of the map and items
- Up to 8x multisampling
- Force VSync in fullscreen mode

Hacks
- Wireframe mode (F2)
- Wallhack (F3)
- Controllable map and item size (F4 and F5)
- Controllable FOV (Page up and Page down)
- Disable DirectX fog (F1)

Other
- Fix for a common crash
- Enable DEP (Data Execution Prevention) on SilentHill.exe
- Allow the game to use 4GB of RAM
- Most of these can be configured in Silent_Hill_Homecoming_PC_Fix.ini

Instalation:
- Start the game normally and set the resolution of your monitor in the options menu. Exit the game.
- Copy all the files to "Silent Hill Homecoming\Bin" folder

For some reason it didn't work for me. Perhaps fix requires Steam version of the game. I own retail copy with few fixes applied. I'll check later if it works on freshly installed game

Edit:
Yep, i moved ENB patch files and SHHPatcher to backup folder and it works - all features, hacks etc...

Edit:
Few tests and experiments done, conclusion:
We can play SHH in higher resolution, with higher frame rate, smooth without crashes, we can change FOV, and much more. That is more than good, but...
I love all fixes and features of the ENB Series Patch :D
