How to fix D3DOverrider in Windows 8 (true and easy solution)!

Many gamers know that there are several poorly coded games that do not support vsync and triple buffering in Direct3D correctly.  One of the games that doesn’t support either is the original “Witcher.”  For such games, D3DOverrider, a tool included with RivaTuner, does the trick.  However, this great little tool doesn’t seem to work correctly with games and Windows 8.

I have found the solution!  This should make D3DOverrider work correctly with any game in Windows 8 that it worked with in Windows 7.  You are going to slap your head at how silly and easy this is to fix:

Step 1)  Don’t do anything to D3DOverrider.  There is nothing wrong with the application.

Step 2)  Locate your game’s exe in explorer.  Right click on it and select Properties.

Step 3)  Select the Compatibility tab, and check “Run this program in compatibility mode for” and select “Windows 7”

Step 4)  Run your game and D3DOverrider will now see the application and it you will hear the system beep telling you that it is working.

In the case of the Witcher, I had to create a custom profile in D3DOverrider.  Once you set compatibility mode on the game itself, that’s all you have to do!  I am running ATI hardware, but there is plenty of nVidia hardware that this fix should be useful for.  I hope this helps many people that where feeling down about D3DOverrider not working correctly.  I’m glad that I stumbled on this silly tweak that anyone can do!

Like I promised, it’s time for a bit more information on the server move and site upgrade. In short terms: we got fed up with that trainwreck drupal, and converted everything to WordPress. Upside for us: It’s much easier to work with. Upside for you: We were finally able to re-enable comments without fear for spamfloods. So in the off-chance case that we say something interesting in the future, feel free to speak your mind about it.

Most project pages still have broken screenshots, but the post contents should all be checked and working. If you find some broken links, broken text, or missing pages, please let us know by posting a comment here, or in this forum thread.

One other thing to point out: We’ve once again created both a black and a white theme for the site. To choose your theme, register an account and log in, open Site Admin in the side menu, and click Profile. You may also disable the WordPress toolbar there, which appears by default after you log in.

Melty Blood Actress Again Current Code English v0.5

As promised before, today we release the partial translation of MBAACC. The translation includes the v1.4.0 update of the Japanese game, so all that’s required to install MBAACC English is the original Japanese DVD. Existing installations of MBAACC can also be patched, as usual.

The translation currently covers the ingame menus, and all command lists. Story mode, win quotes and most of the images remain in Japanese at this point. Updated versions will be released as the progress improves with any significant amount.

I’m starting a Cardfight Vanguard IRC channel

So, no one on the entire internet seems to want to run an English Cardfight!! Vanguard IRC channel.. well, I have decided that I will!

I may not be around 24/7 because I lack a connection to do so, but I’ll help organize some admins and keep a channel open! We’ll focus on English Vanguard, but we can also discuss and play Japanese Vanguard for the super hardcore, and mock Korean Vanguard while we’re at it!

I want to make a newb friendly environment where we can teach people how to play and maybe even form a amateur league where we can test our skills and enhance our play level!

So if you speak English and play Vanguard in either Japanese or English, join my new IRC channel on #cf-vanguard @

Anyone who is new to IRC chat can read this guide by TV-Nihon that explains the basics! This channel will be located on IRCHighway, but the rest like registering a nickname still applies! mIRC is the preferred client for most people using Windows.

Remember, IRC can be slow. Just because there are people in a channel and no one is around, if you hang around (aka lurk long enough) someone will get back to you. I am just starting this channel, so its even more important for people to lurk until we develop some regulars! Hopefully this will turn out big and we’ll have a cool online Vanguard spot to meet people to play with!

April Fools – Melty Blood Pantsu Patch now also in English!

Ever since we announced the Melty Blood Actress Again Current Code translation project (we’re still working hard on that!), we have been thinking how nice it would be to really translate *every* edition of Melty Blood for the PC. And of course we already have most of them down, including their demo versions.

But as ridiculous as we think the final piece is, we figured our collection would never be complete if we didn’t translate the last remaining “upgrade” to MBAC.

Today we are very proud depressed to release Melty Blood Act Candenza Pantsu Patch English v1.0. Please see the project page for details. (Note: not entirely worksafe.)
