American McGee's Alice

About American Mcgee’s Alice HD 2020

Hi! I’m Omri, Checkout my art at, I did a lot of stuff here but more importantly what’s in this pack. This Mod is only a VISUAL upgrade.
Most of the textures are upgraded 4X but the engine can’t support a higher resolution and a FULL upgrade so some are X2 then the original. Higher then what we have now will not work. We tried.

What we did
Things that we didn't change: Models, Maps, Gameplay (besidesOverkill)
If you know how todeal with this engine please contact us, we'd love to change thesethings (:
Things that werechanged: HUD upgrade, Texture upgrade, more models inserted and Menus (Main, Quit, Load, Control). Subtitles.
Reshade is introduced in this pack, it gives the player Depth of Field andsome small adjustments. You can add more if you like but we preferred it to
stick as close to the original look of the game. Some things looked great In
Game but it ruined the menus so we tried to really stick to what works for
everything. You can’t separate the game from the menus.
General Notes
1.   Changing anysetting IN GAME reverts all mod settings to default and you have tore-copy the mod config. Make sure to unlock the read-only, change the CONFIG/AUTOEXECfiles and lock them again as read-only.
2.   It's optionalto NOT TO INSTALL certain Packs, if you don't want "Overkill"or "Reshade" please just don't install it.
3.   If you don'tlike the shadows, change it to " seta cg_shadows "1" which is
the default. we PREFER the 3 although it's not perfect we think it still looks
better than the original.
4.   NEW HUD only works in the original Alice not the HD version of Alice thatcomes with Madness. Game? Download it from somewhere.
5.   DELETE pak1_large.pk3 for the new texture pack to work
6.   To install the other Languages packs please delete“ZZPAK6_MOD.PK3” and replace it with the language pack. German, Spanish and
French are available. Unfortunately I lost the PSD for the main menu so I can’t
replace the words, it will stay in English otherwise I’ll need to remake it
from scratch.

    Hello. I'm having problems with the resolution. I'm using the remastered version within madness returns. I've edited autoexe.cfg and config.cfg to have 1280x720 res, but the game runs on 4:3 at 480p. I've edited both cfg files removing r_mode but no luck. The game was running fine at 720 16:9 before modding it.

    Also, the main menu mod does not work either, and I know it because it's still in spanish (the readme says the menu mod for spanish has menus in english). Some stuff like loading screens and death screen, seem to work but with some bugs, like this screenshot:

    Here is my setup:

    D:\Games\Alice Madness Returns - The Complete Collection\Game\Alice1\bin\base

    _ deleted pak1_large.pk3

    unzipped into \base folder:


    both AMR and AMA are running in spanish because that's my system default language.

    EDIT: I've found a cfg in user folder. Not sure if something needs to be edited there. Also, If a edit the resolution in game, it works, but the README says I must not do changes IN GAME.

    Overkill cheats and hd textures work fine, I guess. Even after editing res through in game settings.

    I wish you can help me. I really want to play this mod.

    More screenshots from menus (running with mod cfg files, no ingame settings touched). See the game run at 480p no matter cfg's res and readme tips:
