NEW! TFix now uses NewDark
(v1.21), the new amazing patch for dark engine based games.
I have compiled together the most important T1/TG fixes into one installer, so if you are having
problems running the GOG release, or just want to have better graphics/widescreen support,
go ahead and try it out (works for the regular and the GOG version, but do note that you are using
it on your own risk).
!!! IMPORTANT !!!
