    I have an Issue. When i start the game in full screen, the screen is zoomed and the game cross the borders of the screen. I looked for solutions in the comments but I did'nt find nothing.

    I don't know if this detail happens to others but in the control configuration the option "Next Weapon" and "Previous Weapon" says "Wheel up and down the mouse" being that originally the symbols "[ ]" are used to change weapons in this game.
    (sorry my english, my native language is spanish)
    PS: Hopefully you can get the patch in Spanish with the menus.
    For the rest, the game has worked very well for me.
    Thanks.

      Rmode is not the resolution.
      try reading the readme to see what controls the resolution,
      try deleting the Autoexe i understood some people have issues with that!

      if you can't get it to work write to my email i'll try to help as much i can

      After a lot of bashing my head against the wall, I found the fix. But it's for the version that's shipped with 2011 Alice.

      To not have the resolution issue, ONLY copy pak3 stuff. .cfg files are read from somewhere else. 

      In: C:\\Documents\My Game\American McGee's Alice

      But that is set up correctly. Don't replace it with the ones from the mod. Lunch the game do the stuff you need for settings and if something is not set up correctly in the next lunch (in my case it was going full screen) than open that config file and change that value. Vsync should be fine on that config.

    I'm FRench,

    delete “intro.mus” in "pak2.pk3", OKay.
    But when i swap "main.urc" in "zzpak6_modfrench.pk3"  with the one from "pak12Intro.pk3"...
    ... game crashes before creating a window, i'm not sure if there is a note for people using other than English zzpak6 file !!

    Taht's all.

    Not a big problem, just have to know access simple menu (backspace for me).

      EDIT =

      fixed = i forgot to use shortcut with applied mod's command line ( +map d_intro)... used EXE instead !!
      All my fault.
      But why, why did i forgot that always and only when doing "this specific" edit....
      ... at least i learned one trhing, this edit makes the modded game's command line mandatory to run, that it was not before replaceing main.urc.




      EDIT 2=

      the bug is active on my NVidia desktop PC (i compared files with Winmerge), i can't launch the game with the main.urc file changed (again)...BTW, i can't launch the game with if  opengl DLL is present (i remove it), but only again on the NVidia PC.All works on my DeskMini on an AMD APU... opengl DLL (i use only FXAA), and the changed main.urc too.
      That's strange.



      ----------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------
      ----------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------
      ----------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------



      Alright, I'll be more specific,

      About installing this intro (in PDF readme) :
      Delete “intro.mus” UNLESS YOU WANT the original song of the menu.
      It works, no need to say more.

      BUT

      When I change Main.urc (same PDF readme, second step) in zzpak6_modfrench.pk3 with that of pak12Intro.pk3, then extract the file from pak12Intro.pk3 to be replaced in zzpak6_modfrench.pk3 (aka zzpak6_mod - 4x.pk3 French version)...
      ... the game crashes instantly. The log window appears, empty, and closes immediately.

      I just did it again. I see that it is a file openable by notepad (urc), I will look.

    If anyone is trying to fix the HUD not working after the '3 switch puzzle'. Just keep playing. It'll come back on when the level ends

    Amazing mod! I've recently rediscovered Alice on oldgamesdownload.com and knew I had to get the HD mod to play along with it. My aspect ratio screwed me over with the ingame screen getting cut off, but the only solution I've found for me that worked for my 1920x1080 was to change windows display setting to 100% instead of my recommended 120%

    While this allowed me to play no problem, and keep the HD mod upgrade intact since I didn't change any files, it did make the entire HUD disappear

    I could try to play without HUD, but honestly playing without is very, very, very difficult. Is there any suggestion you would recommend for my disappearing HUD?

      I don't know if this is related to what you're experiencing, but my HUD wasn't there when I first started and I had to turn it on in the config file. It had defaulted to 0 and I had to set it to 1.

      Use on your keyboard the letter O to open the cheat menu. you can enable/disable the hud through it.

      What is incredible is that oldgamesdownload took the game from archiveorg, which took it from igg-games. Meanwhile, there are probably users who are desperately looking for the original version in these 3 sources that are actually the same, without knowing that none of them offers the version they are looking for because it is still the 2011 remaster through Alice Madness Returns...

      it works but the new HUD won't work with that version of Alice.
      you need the original game for the new Hud.

      It's abandonedware as far as I know, unfortunately EA removed the Complete edition from Origin so it's near impossible to buy it nowadays, I have Madness Returns on Origin and it's the base game only. Sad!

      You can still buy the Madness Returns Complete Collection from Gamestop's digital store. Bought it from there recently - looks like it's actually the only place you can get it now:

      Gamestop's online store is the only place to buy the Complete Collection now (w/ the Alice remaster). The original Alice release is available free on other sites as abandonware.

      No you can not buy it on humble bundle dude! This game was abandoned long ago and is considered freeware. There are sites that host games that can not be purchased anymore and the developers have ceased to profit from it.

      It's true, you cannot purchase the original game on Humble Bundle. But I think that they meant that you can purchase Alice: Madness Returns - The Complete Collection, which includes the original Alice game.  Which is true, I just recently purchased it myself.

      Also the original is Here

      I wouldn't risk clicking on your link. If VirusTotal doesn't detect anything, my MBAM add-on detects about 20 items including a malware named TagzEU. Be careful.

    The new textures and menus look great but I installed this on the 2011 remaster and the red and blue bits of the health/will bars don't allign with the hud element that surrounds them. The actual bar bit pokes out over the top of the boundary texture and the bottom of the bar is above the bottom of the boundary.. It's hard to explain.

    Anyway I've found out how to fix this. Rename "zzpak5_modHD.pk3" to "zzpak5_modHD.zip" and you can open it with WinRAR. Don't extract it! Navigate to \models\ui\ and delete the "hud" folder. The hud is resized back to it's full size but everything aligns properly. Rename the file extension back to ".pk3" and you're sorted.

    Also if you want to get this game I got it from the internet archive here: https://archive.org/details/iggalice.madness.returns.the.complete.collection

      Ah I did read the readme and I thought the HUD stuff was in it's own module and separate to the new textures.

      aaahhh! you know what you actually might of found a problem! 
      it's suppose ONLY to be on the 
      ZZPAK10_MODHUD.PK3 - HUD Upgrade 

      it's suppose to be a separate installation!
      i'll delete that folder and re-upload the file.
      the idea is that only pack10 should give you the SHAPE not the texture.
      i might of accidently uploaded these files twice!
      thanks! much appreciated!

      This has already been said but I'm reporting it here.
      It is not necessary to change the .PK3 format to .ZIP by renaming the file. 
      Just right click on the PK3 file and choose "Open with..." then "WinRAR" (or 7zip).
      After this manipulation, all your PK3 files should open with WinRAR by default when you click on them.

    - Test report of 22/05/2022 -

    0] RECORDING

    Launching Mirillis Action before the game crashes the game with the actions below:

    ~ Change the resolution of the game.
    ~ Enable full screen.
    ~ Close Mirillis Action while the game is running.

    Solution: You have to launch the game and configure it before launching Mirillis Action to record.

    1] THE RESOLUTION

    Delete the line "r_mode"-1" from the Autoexec.cfg and Config.cfg files in the "base" folder will keep the game resolution in 1080p at each launch after configuring the game.

    Note: Removing Autoexec.cfg from the "base" folder is not the best solution because your 1080p resolution will be maintained but not the full screen mode.

    2] THE HUD

    Delete "pak1_large.pk3" without replacing it with "zzpak5_modHD.pk3" displays black textures in game.

    Importing "zzpak10_modHud.pk3" without "zzpak5_modHD.pk3" does not make the meta essence content visible.

    The content of the meta-essence comes from "zzpak5_modHD.pk3"

    Solution: Delete "zzpak10_modHud.pk3" restores the meta-essence gauges to their original size but makes the offset disappear.

    3] THE RESHADE

    Delete "opengl32.dll" to solve the "GLW_StartOpenGL" error displayed in the black box when opening the game.

    Notes :

    ~ Delete also "opengl32.log" because without "opengl32.dll" it becomes useless.
    ~ In the optional ZIP of the Reshade "OmriReshade.ini" is missing but this has no consequences.
    ~ Replacing the Optional "reshade-shaders" folder by the Bundle folder changes the Reshade list.
    ~ The Reshade displays more light effects with "z(Mod)OverKill".
    ~ The blue meta-essence gauge seems more sensitive to bloomFX than the red one.

    4] TEXTURES

    The "zzpak6_***.pk3" files in Optional all seem to have a texture offset in the loading bar.

    Solution: This problem is not encountered with "zzpak6_mod - 4x.pk3" in the Bundle.

    Notes:

    ~ There is a big difference when comparing "zzpak6_mod - 4x.pk3" in the Optional and Bundle in their property.
    ~ "zzpak6_mod - 4x.pk3" and "zzpak6_original.pk3" are malfunctioning with the menus, some textures are not displayed, others partially (the anomalies are located in the same places).
    ~ Alice's omega necklace has been replaced by the mod author's symbol in "zzpak5_modHD.pk3".
    Restoring her original necklace and putting the mark on the menu or the HUD seems to be a good compromise.

    5] THE FEATURES

    The cheat after the installation of "zzpak8_mod.pk3" and the gameplay with a PS4 controller (model : BB4469Blu) are perfectly functional !

    COMMENT ]

    I'm trying to understand how your mod works and the game mechanics. I also encountered some strange problems, I took a long time to understand some remarks between the translation and the test, I had to reread all the comments twice. I read each of your readme, I even started several times the manipulations by returning each time to a vanilla version of the game. Some problems persist for unexplained reasons.

    If you still have textures to improve, I'll be happy to help you. I want to thank you for this work because I can imagine how hard it must have been, even if I was motivated by passion. The fact that the mod has incompatibilities with the AMR DLC version is intriguing to me and has been keeping me up at night lately.

    It will take some time but I will keep you posted if I find ways to fix the compatibility issues. I want to see your mod fully functional on this 2011 version (if one day it is possible).

    Hey nice mod. I have 1 issue. My resolution always revert to the lowest resolution every time. I always check the read only. In the config and autoexec it still show 3840×2160. I also remove the line if I have a resolution problem, but it changes nothing. I have no other way than changing every time in game. Thank you for any help.

    Edit : Fixed by deleting the autoexec files
