Essential improvements[edit]

Age Of Redemption Mod[edit]

The vanilla game suffers from serious bugs, which can prevent you from progressing. This mod fixes those issues, but also rebalances the game and adds additional features. It can be downloaded here.

Neural Redemption HD Textures[edit]

Original game textures upscaled with neural networks. All game textures are upscaled. Download on Nexus or ModDB

Skip intro videos[edit]

Delete/rename logo.bik[citation needed]
  1. Go to <path-to-game>\Video\.
  2. Delete or rename logo.bik.

Alternately just hit esc twice to skip the two videos to get to the main menu(this was made before unskippable bik junk)

On newer systems (x64 Systems or 64bit) the autorun install from disc wont work because of an executable error. You can still install the game from disc using the installer found on the disc in the setup folder.

For example: DVD-DRIVE\setup\setup.exe

Games with Steam Cloud support may store data in ~/.steam/steam/userdata/<user-id>/559680/ in addition to or instead of this directory. The app ID (559680) may differ in some cases. Treat backslashes as forward slashes. See the glossary page for details.
