Hitman 2: Silent Assassin

3D Vision fix for Hitman 2: Silent Assassin. It includes a Hor+ aspect ratio mod (up to triple monitor, but customizable for custom aspect ratio too. It's done by shaders) which is NOT affected by culling (it will render perfectly). The fix needs dgVoodoo to convert DX8 into DX11.

UPDATE: I've updated the fix today (2017-11-17) to filter the HUD better.

- Sun light depth.
- HUD elements and subtitles (they disappeared at moderate convergence levels before).
- Crosshair.

Known issues
- Not exactly an issue, but I had to force cutscene subtitles and some menus at max depth, because the sun light depends on it. Normal ingame subtitles and HUD aren't affected by this.

- Download this file and extract its contents in the "Hitman 2 Silent Assassin" folder, where "hitman2.exe" is.
- Download the latest dgVoodoo 2 release or WIP version here:
- From inside its "MS" folder, copy "D3D8.dll", "D3DImm.dll" and "DDraw.dll" into the game folder.
- Open "dgVoodooCpl.exe" and configure it like this, for example, tuning the resolution and some other settings to your liking:

- In "Hitman 2.ini" (in the root folder of the game), use "Resolution 1024x768". Even if it says 1024x768 there, that will only control HUD scaling and not the internal resolution.

- Using that internal resolution and not any other widescreen trick, the game will be proper 16:9 thanks to the fix. F4 changes the aspect ratio in real time, but check "d3dx.ini", above the "w=0.75" line, to see the instructions.
- Boot the game and play.

- p: six convergence presets.
- F3: HUD depth presets (crosshair included). Screen depth by default. Unlike in the fix of the first game, this time all the HUD will move to the same depth.
- F4: aspect ratio presets. The default one is 16:9. The order is: 4:3, 16:9, AR for 2560x1080, AR for 3440x1440, and 48:9.

NOT alternative widescreen mode
- There are some other methods on the internet that will tell you to use:

StartUpperPos 0,0

This works for Hitman: Codename 47, but in this game those settings will disable 3D completely. Just use my aspect ratio mod, because it doesn't have drawbacks.
