Last Updated: 2/14/16

What this mod does:
- Utilizes Helix's LUA script to fix various shadows & lights
- Fixes fog, reflections & lightshafts
- Disables white outline around the main character & some lens flare effects
- Adds a low convergence preset on the 'Z' key.
- Adds a medium & high convergence preset on the 'C' key.

Remaining Issues:
- Bloom from light sources looks a little incorrect when up close
- Some newspaper clippings have uneven text

1)  Download this ZIP file and extract the contents into the directory "..\Murdered Soul Suspect\Binaries\Win64\"
2)  In the directory"..\Murdered Soul Suspect\Engine\Config\", open the file "BaseEngine.ini"
3)  Where it says "AllowNvidiaStereo3d=", change it to from False to True.  Save the file & exit.

For the Steam Version:
4)  In the Steam directory, delete the file "GameOverlayRenderer64.dll".
5)  Open the Steam client and in your Steam library, right click on "MURDERED: SOUL SUSPECT" and select "Properties"
6)  Click "Set Launch Options"
7)  In the box, type -dx9 and click "Ok"

  1. Thanks for this fix.

  2. Thanks again 4everAwake, going back to this game now!

  3. I just bought this game on a humble bundle, great timing! :) Thanks for the fix.

  4. Thanks 4everAwake!

    I remember stop playing this game, because of the constant 2D movies/cinematics every 5 min. Further in game this change somehow...less 2D cinematics every 5 min?

    1. There's still a lot of 2D cutscenes, unfortunately. But I don't think it's as much as the beginning.

  5. Thank you 4everAwake :-)

    I started this on a laptop traveling/2d, then a little in stock compatibility, then now your fix, makes this truly playable. A trippy game and fun wandering around.

    Fwiw, on my surround box it needs Flawless WS, but FWS only seems to fix dx11, not dx9, or I probably need to tweak something. I have a post at wsgf and will report back if I hear.

    In any case, still have my H5360 box, so playing on that is probably better anyway!
    Take care,

  6. Wow, is there anything you can't fix 4everAwake? Amazing, thank you so much!

  7. Thank you so much 4everAwake.

    Fix is perfect :)
