About this mod

A personal project aimed to make Dark Messiah look slightly better then the base game.

Permissions and credits
Hello everyone and welcome to DME.
Dark Messiah Enhanced (DME) is a small personal project I decided to work on to increase the resolution of textures in the base game to help increase the overall quality, even if only slightly. 

To install: 
-Inside game directory, go inside folder /mm. Open gameinfo.txt and add the line Game Custom to it. (or download from misc section)
-It should look like this: 
Gamecustom
Game mm
Game|gameinfo_path|.
-Launch the game, (re)adjust settings to your preference then close game. 
-Go back to game directory, inside folder /mm.
-Copy the media folder (If you have previous saves from /mm then also copy the SAVE folder) and paste them into the /custom folder.
-Download and extract this mod to the /custom directory.
-Launch and play.

If you crash when loading new game or saved game, apply large address aware to mm.exe.  It can be found here.

My Note:
Some of the game textures are set using a specific resolution and thus changing that resolution changes the size in game. 
I also couldn't figure out a way to edit the sky textures correctly either. 
Other then that, this mod is now in a complete state.

However, this should be a good start for helping the game look slightly better overall. Removes a lot of the pixelation the textures had in base game. Though some textures still appear.. well not good. 

FPS wise, game seems mostly unaffected by the texture increase. In few cases I did have problems, but I think that was on my end as a game restart solved the issue. 

If someone happens to know a way around the resolution lock if there is one feel free to let me know.
In any-case I hope this helps you to enjoy the game in a ever, if even so slightly, visual appeal. :)
