This is really cool. I had randomly got an itch for this game for pure nostalgia. Anyway, everything works so far, but 1080p option doesn't work for me. The max I can go to is 1600x900. If I use the 1080p option its stretches even through its a 1080p screen. I'm on a laptop BTW and its a 15.6 inch screen. Could that be an issue?

Edit: I can't seem to take pics even with printscreen or gyzo for something reason, but it looks like the wheel is in the middle but the options like accept and exit are off the screen. Right now I just have it at 1600x900, even tho on some sections it's almost off screen.

Also, I can't seem to get the custom music to work. I've done the method in the other thread. I have no idea how to setup the tracklist.ini.

it's weird cause both 1600x900 and 1920x1080 are 16:9 hence it should not act differently in terms of aspect ratio. what resolution is chosen if you click Detect button?

you can take screenshots using msi afterburner, if nothing else works.

custom soundtrack approach was changed to address the issues the old ini method was causing.

Major difference in this release is that now I use SQLite database to store most of the data in a convinient way. Most level related data from levelpatch is stored in thps.db and sountrack is stored in music.db. To import custom soundtrack, download this:

Thanks. I honestly have no idea why thps2 is not letting me take screenshots. I can take them with every other game. Nothing is working. Could be the windowless border dll's?

Anyway it detects this resolution: 1536x864

All of my other games play in 1080p. I made sure both my nvida and intel settings were set to 1080p.

I'm on Win10 as well.

well, check your display specs to be sure. it could be 125% win10 scaling though.

this game is a lazy port from early 00s. it doesn't handle windows messages properly hence you can't alt-tab or alt-f4, can't print screen, etc. there is built in screenshot function, but it's slow and only works correctly in 16 bits. what you can do without external tools is to run it in a window then unfocus thps2, then hit print screen. it will take a screenshot of your desktop, and eventually, thps2 window will be there too.

Any way to use cumulative patch with windowed mode? Or a way to achieve windowed above 480p?

if it works like that without patch, you should check your display settings including gpu driver utilities, either nvidia control panel or radeon settings.
to test vanilla thps2 simply rename dinput.dll and ddraw.dll (if exists) to something else and launch THawk2.exe.
what do you mean by "both app"?

I recently play thps2 again but had the crash after bullring, so i took this custom patch to get a no cd exe to be ably to disable the videos.. but now as i waited with it until i had all gaps done i could do so far, i got a sneaky little problem : the gap list for "chopper drop" and the career quests are the same as for the hangar, which means i cant complete it of course + not check which gaps are missing..
Even tho im pretty sure i got all the gaps already, its confusing to have quests like collect 5 pilot signs on a map without anything to collect .... >.<

Help would be appreciated

(thps2 by abandonware + patch of this thread in use / just cheated single char to finish campaign, tried to move around the bullring crash earlier)
