Good thing I popped on this forum - there are some updated tools I didn't have.
- I'm putting together a new release of Hardwar with patches, skins and extras included and am going to call it Hardwar - Enhanced. This will be uploaded to Megaupload.com and posted on forums for all to enjoy.
It will have it's own installer no need to go download all the patches and manually install, the installer will do everything for you. - Or I could simply make it portable without the installer but I think the installer gives it a nice touch.
I have done this with a few other games such as:
Half Life Source Enhanced Battlezone 2 - Enhanced System Shock 2 - Enhanced Virtual Pool 3 Enhanced
I have 3 others I will not mention here because of the legality of their abandonware status is in the grey area. This makes a total of 7 games in my Retro Releases Collection and the inclusion of Hardwar will make 8. It will be tested with Windows 7 64 bit so it should work on any version of windows.
I called them my Retro Releases Collection because these games have updated graphics, patches, and patches/tools to make them look awesome and run well on newer systems. Some of them are DirectX 10 compatible now where they were never meant to play on DX 10. I call them Retro because they are both old games and yet newly retrofitted.
I will add Hardwar to this list as soon as I get it done, and of course I will happily provide this forum with links to this game.
I wish to know, are there any updated texture mods for the buildings and scenery that are not listed on Zedo's site?
Well I've tweeted Andrew, see what he's up to these days. Emailed the dark phoenix chap, but I don't hold much hope. Have a feeling that his hotmail probably isn't in use these days, but you never know!
