Online functionalities have been discontinued on December 15, 2015. All Massgate.net resources were taken down as well.[1][2][3]
The open-source MassGate replacement server is available for everyone to join. It's also possible for everyone to host their own server using its source code

Essential improvements[edit]

Patches[edit]

The game comes with a built-in autopatcher. However, the latest patches can be downloaded manually from here (you'll likely have to download previous patches from the same site, as the official source was taken down).

Windows 7 DirectX 10 Workaround[edit]

DirectX 10 rendering mode was broken after installing Platform update for Windows 7 SP1 and Windows Server 2008 R2 SP1 (KB2670838). To run the game in DX10 mode without crashing, uninstall KB2670838 from Control Panel.

Skip intro videos[edit]

Replace intro videos with blank BINK videos[4]
  1. Download this mod: Skip intro videos at Nexus Mods.
  2. Extract the contents of the downloaded archive to "<path-to-game>".

Make HBAO work in DX9 mode[edit]

Use Nvidia Profile Inspector[citation needed]
Use inspector as per usual (open World in Conflict profile, etc.) and change flag 0x000B0000 to 0x000B0032 adding a "32" at the end. Could also try it with an "04" at the end if you prefer the effect stronger.

Notes

  1. 1.0 1.1 File/folder structure within this directory reflects the path(s) listed for Windows and/or Steam game data (use Wine regedit to access Windows registry paths). Games with Steam Cloud support may store data in ~/.steam/steam/userdata/<user-id>/21760/ in addition to or instead of this directory. The app ID (21760) may differ in some cases. Treat backslashes as forward slashes. See the glossary page for details.
