I wanted to leave some feedback about the patch and The Suffering Prison Is Hell.
1st problem I noticed were crashes. Absolutely random and maybe every hour or so. I tried tons of things but nothing seems to have fixed it, including setting affinity but from what I am reading this patch already has such fixes anyway. However, I did read that deleting the dsound files fixed it for some people. Sadly read that too late and finished the game but might replay it anyway and test this. There is also DSOAL 3D Audio mod that actually might work with the game and add HRTF but maybe it causes crashes too? Maybe I will test all this if I get around to it. I also play Suffering 2 later.
2nd problem I noticed were autosave checkpoints. They didnt work whatsoever but this problem is also listed on the PC Gaming Wiki. Not even the patch here seems to fix it. Needed to make manual saves all the time. Maybe the patch author could fix the autosave checkpoints? Seem to be mainly a issue on modern OS systems.
3rd problem was that in 4K resolution (used it for downsampling Anti Aliasing, game looks amazing with it!) the notes were way too small to read. Workaround is to change resolution to 1080p, read notes, and then change back.
4th problem was that the weapon inventory GUI is broken and doesn't display weapons properly. But author seems to be aware of that since it is in the notes. No fix available?
Just thought I might leave some feedback for the mod author. Thanks a lot for this patch! Really makes the game enjoyable again. Minus the crashes... But that might not even be the authors fault, more like GOGs for including dsound files. If those are really the reason for the crashes.
Didn't they initially add those files to fix sound issues with the game? I remember this as workaround years ago to fix missing sounds and low audio channels and such stuff. From what I am seeing this patch fixes those issues anyway, no?
Oh btw, saw some people complaining about the setup not showing up again.
To run the setup box again, make a shortcut of the game exe and add -setup as commandline.
Like this: "C:\Games\The Suffering\SUFFERING.EXE" -setup
