EvoTweaker 7.58 for EL 1.0828+ Hardcore Mode (alpha version) & ModS package conversion wizards. Readme will be launched on execution for install instructions. Optimal performance on Intel HD 5000 and above systems with related relative performance chipsets / CPUs only. 2GB VRAM recommended for high resolutions. Hardcore mode requires batch operation, be sure to type "test" in main menu to ensure it will work as designed. - includes recovery archive to save from re-downloading if corrupted.
So this has went from a simple question thread to basically a total conversion of, sounds, community mods with a pre-launcher for the game.
Sounds are all new, Music is from FLAC tracks, though downsampled to normal levels, and some has been altered by me to give an upbeat retro experience, add to that the custom launcher to tweak your setup and all the other popular COMMUNITY mods in one place....With all credits in Readme and Launcher to creators.
If it doesn't feel like a brand...BRAND new game from a fresh install, I dropped the ball!
PS. Launcher and mods work with online play
Launcher allows you to very fluidly copy new assets to the game without physically copy and pasting files, I have found it saves me some time if I want to switch things up in my game, tweak mods, etc.. That and it consists of a wide variety of credit given mods from the COMMUNITY here, and makes it easy to choose between a few that can't work together without the need of manually going into directories.
It is an accumulation of all the work people did here to make this experience even better.
You do NOT NEED to use the launcher, all assets are included in ModS folder and you can copy/paste at will. It is simply much easier to use it in my opinion. (Copy/Pasting music without the launcher automating may create ingame errors or incorrect placing / naming.)
The launcher can automate common issue fixes at a couple key presses, set game engine framerate limits, change settings before launch (settings not found in game), flush your video memory, etc, to improve play-ability on older machines & fix some common types of crashes to desktop.
Many mods included can be found here on the forums, but I bundled the most common used ones.
modpack contains .exe / .bat files meant for diagnosing problems with older setups and are not required to be ran (excluding switchero launcher). They are safe.
The new "Hardcore mode" features may require the game to be in an x86 folder / mode or to use the included 64 bit install mode for scripters to work as designed.
Hardcore mode requires the game to be launched within switchero.bat launcher and for ModS\beta directory path and files to be unmodified.
SELF-EXTRACTS, target your main Evochron Directory for expansion (for steam, find the main directory or your steam library and Evochron, or if default, in program files (x86) /steam/steamapps ....Note, you can unpack the archive but to prevent problems the launcher will NOT run if it does not detect evochron in its directory
Download of ALL Conversion Assets (Matchsounds + Community Mods (Perch cockpit, shaders, huds, backdrops, models, etc)) & 6+ Hrs New HQ MUSIC and .bat switch launcher (highly recommended to install with the included batch file, otherwise you might have issues & bugs with some installs)
