    Hi gang!

    I need help with Silent Hill 2 PC. The game installed withou problems. Now whenever I go into the options menu (from start screen or ingame), it crashes me back to the desktop!

    The game itself works, but I'd like to change some settings, of course ;)

    Maybe anyone experienced that, too and found a solution?

    Alternatively, where are the settings stored, in the settings.ini?
    I only got one entry there, so maybe soneone could post his ini, so that I could use this to change settings!

    Thanks a lot and happy gaming :D

    Volk


    Specs:
    Athlon XP 2600+
    ATI Radeon 9000, Catalyst 2.5
    AC97 sound
    Win2000 SP3
    DirectX8.1

    I think me and you Volki are the only people who have this game. ;)
    Code:
    SET DX_CONFIG_EFFECT_FOG_ON 1
    SET DX_CONFIG_EFFECT_SHADOWS_ON 0
    SET DX_CONFIG_EFFECT_LENS_FLARE_ON 0
    SET DX_CONFIG_EFFECT_MOTION_BLUR_ON 0
    SET DX_CONFIG_EFFECT_DEPTH_OF_FIELD_ON 0
    SET DX_CONFIG_RES 1
    SET DX_CONFIG_USE_LORES_TEXTURES 0
    SET DX_CONFIG_3D_SOUND_HARDWARE 2
    SET DX_CONFIG_3D_SOUND_HARDWARE_AVAILABLE 1
    SET DX_CONFIG_BRIGHTNESS 3
    SET DX_CONFIG_SCREEN_POS_X 0
    SET DX_CONFIG_SCREEN_POS_Y 0
    SET DX_CONFIG_NOISE 0
    
    Ideally, you'd want the first 5 set to 1 of course. And if you like the static layer over the screen the change the last one to 1 also. It makes it look like an old movie or something. The res I have it set to is 640x480. Try 2, 3, 4...for higher resolutions.;)

    Aah, worked flawlessly!

    I play now in 1600x1200 (Setting: 5) with everything else set to 1, except the noise (didn't like that after a while) :)

    Strange that I could'nt get into the options, when everything works fine now...

    Anyhow, thanks, JamesBone, oyu made me happy (or should I say scary? :D)
