The Incredible Adventures of Van Helsing: Final Cut [DX9]


This fix also works with the following stand-alone games:
- The Incredible Adventures of Van Helsing I
- The Incredible Adventures of Van Helsing II
- The Incredible Adventures of Van Helsing III

What this mod does:
- Fixes various haloing & lighting issues (bloom, battle effects, etc..)
- Disables bloom in one small area
- Adds 2 convergence presets on the 'Z' key. Use the lower convergence preset for the main menu and some cutscenes
- Pushes HUD & UI into depth a little bit. (I was unable to give it more depth due to clipping issues.)  Press the 'Caps Lock' key to make HUD & UI screen depth

Remaining Issues:
- Mouse cursor is screen depth.
- Some HUD / UI unevenness & clipping
- Some water reflections look incorrect

Installation (for 64-bit version of the game):
  1. Download this ZIP file and extract the contents into the game directory
  2. In the "..\Steam\" folder, move the file "GameOverlayRenderer64.dll" to a different folder.
  3. Run the game.  Go to the Options menu and under the Video tab, verify "Direct3D 9" is selected. 
  4. (Recommended)- In the Gameplay tab, disable "Enemy HP bars" and "Allied HP bars".

I utilized Eqzitara's original Van Helsing fix as a template to fix this.
