"GOG Delux edition" games with hi-rez textures, community patches, updates, mods and other add-ons

Often old games have active communities that have released patches and graphical updates long after the published/developer has stopped supporting the game. These include high resolution textures to modernize old games, wide-screen patches to make them work in 16:9 ratio, community patches that fix a lot of remaining bugs, extra maps and content, audio improvements, interface improvements and so on. Some of these are obscure and hard to find online, others are easily found through the GOG forum. But in any case it takes a long time to assemble the pieces, edit setting files, patch exes etc. Some of these patches also don't work well with the GOG version. That's why I suggest that GOG also include a "GOG Delux edition" which is basically their build of all these add-ons, to make the 'absolutely best version possible' of an old game. I suggest this be an extra version, so that people that want to experience the game in the original format (or customize the game themselves) can still do so. I think this would add a lot of value to old games, and I think it's not hard to convince content owners to accept this as it basically adds value to their old game. GOG would have to work a bit more to make and support this version, but it would be worth is since they would be selling a version of the game not available anywhere else.

I just created a own wish entry in the GOG forum: <br /> "3rd party list from GOG for mods, unofficial patches, etc. backed by GOG and its customers" <br /> I think that idea is more economical and realistic to make it reality then individual solutions for all GOG games. Please vote for it if you like the proposal.

I think a more simple compromise solution would be to have GOG make a page with links to 3rd party sites they trust/like (of course with legal notes to cover their tailends) and make this 3rd party link collection easily available on their site. <br /> <br /> Maintenance would be a bit easier then individual solutions for thousands and thousands of games and it would be cheaper. <br /> GOG users could maybe also vote for those 3rd party links to raise their rep and give that 3rd party mod list an own forum page as well which should just focus on general questions to the list and how to use, apply and also how to remove mods. <br /> <br /> My old paint store I worked in had such a list for contractor customers we knew well and recommended them to other household customers. <br /> The list needed of course maintenance over the year(s) but it was a simple but effective way. I think GOG should have such a list as many people don't know classics like <a href="http://www.moddb.com" class="light_un" target="_blank">www.moddb.com</a> and others. <br /> When players want to promote a certain mod or mod collection they could post a link into the according game forum. <br /> That way GOG members could help <a href="http://GOG.com" class="light_un" target="_blank">GOG.com</a> by adding their experience and help maintenance for the GOG recommendation list of 3rd parties.

I don't think that's a good idea, the problem being maintenance. Sure it would be nice to have, but if this 'deluxe version' was broken for some people (as it predictably would be), this would just lead to unnecessary frustration.

The problem is that not everyone wants the same thing. I'd sooner mod my games myself.

A zip file of common patches with a text file of notes what they do in the extras would be ideal.

I find this annoying for me especially with Swords of the Stars: The Pit. The edition was changed in the offer I bought from being the Gold edition to the base edition + DLCs to be nice to previous buyers.

&gt; Currently, when you own a game's Gold Edition (base game + DLCs), the separate base game and DLCs are marked as owned. <br /> <br /> --isn't true for Wasteland 2: I redeemed the kickstarter code for the deluxe edition and got it and the upgrade DLC marked as owned, but not the classic edition. Definitely needs to be fixed.

Agreed. I already own the "Gold Edition", I just purchased it in separate parts instead of in a bundle. <br /> Maybe even, having the "owned" tag in a separate colour so we know we can still buy it if we really really really want to support GoG in sales.

It should mark it as Owned regardless of whether you got the gold edition or buying the base game and then the DLC's, GOG needs to fix this even though you can't buy it twice, last thing customers need is to be double charged because GOG could not be bothered to mark the game properly.

Maybe an older game edition should be flagged as "Included", rather than "Owned". But collectors should be able to "Buy It Anyway" - also a nice way to support GOG.com!

I really want to see this. Some people may not care about having Fallout 3 + DLCs or Fallout 3 GOTY (a quick example), indeed they're the same, but I do. Also, sometimes you have some especial updates or patches for the last one. Whatever, if you have the vanilla game + all the dlc's this should be replaced by the gold edition instantly.

I would say they single versions should even be replaced automatically by the gold version. Keep the shelf as clear of DLC as possible.

It would be nice. Some of us completest types tend to forget over time just how many games we own. I might one day buy it twice, good for GOG , not so good for me.

This is what the community is for, not gog. Though they did do a smashing job with including additional material for the Thief games. I still think this is opening up too much extra work and will delay releases unduly if they have to work the game plus the additional content into their installer.

"Indie" is already introduced and somehow all games here are more or less "Classics" ;)

Good idea but sometimes it can be quite hard to tell what's classic and what's indie and what's just 'regular' games.

I agree with this when enhancements are universal. For example, widescreen mods are largely undisputed. Add those. When it comes to textures, if there is one highly acclaimed texture pack, then yes add it. But when there are two competing textures packs (for example Oblivion's body mods) I'd rather not have GoG involved in opinion wars. When there is a clear cut, single path to improvement... then, yes, I'd like this suggestion. When its opinionated due to options, I'd rather they just point us to the options and let us decide. I'd also claim that this should ONLY include things that don't modify the original core game. Adding levels, changing plot, etc... those are best left to each player to choose. They can link to the stuff and provide articles, etc... but not bundled in the core .exe.

Because adding mods would require extra men power from GOG, they may not like idea. So maybe people could download game from GOG, patch it, and then submit patched version. Then you can just select one of few pre-moded version ready to plan. To make choice, which version to choose, people could vote for best moded version of game.

Full agreement, if the community made already the dirty work of providing an up-to-date experience, GOG should at least review and include this great stuff! As fixing technical limitations (wide-screen support etc. ) is a service I expect by a (good) publisher like GOG which sells games as "adapted to newer OS/platforms/hardware". So including solutions from whatever source should be normal and even to expect. And I would even go one step further, I would request from GOG some review and officializing of such community made patches. (e.g. Killaps fallout II patch or timeslip great resolution fix for DKII (<a class="light_un" href="http://www.gog.com/en/forum/dungeon_keeper_series/hardware_acceleration_doesnt_seem_to_be_quite_working)" target="_blank">http://www.gog.com/en/forum/dungeon_keeper_series/hardware_acceleration_doesnt_seem_to_be_quite_working)</a> )! I think GOG should package sometimes "final" (officialized) patches for well know broken games. When the game community already created fixes and patches and these just need to be "reviewed and authorised" by a official hand. (Creating new patches would be even greater, e.g. by paying well know reverse engineering specialists like timeslip. ;) ) Who should do it beside GOG? They care for old games and got a official licenses for old and dead franchises, so they have the authority (and responsibility) in creating final, offcial patches if possible. ;) And I agree with the OP it would be also great publicity, if only the GOG version has the final fixes of some game...e.g. DKII in patch vesion 1.9 ;c)
