Lots of bugs, problem with audio and lightning effects (black textures and changing texture of Alex).
This is solution that worked for me in the case of freezing Alex (aka not moving at all). Playing it on winxp sp3 with below the min. requirements.
1.Installed patch enbseries_sh5_patch11 (which fixed sound problem and freezing animantion
start and not responding status)
2. Open file vars_pc with notepad and set fullscreen to false then just save
(game should run in window then)
3. When Alex is not moving aka freezing (problem with controls) press ctrl-alt-del
to open task manager or any other window, then after 2-3 seconds close task manager or other, or just switch back through alt-tab
4. Game is normal again (not including black textures and Alex texture that can change)
5. If there is some error and crashing to desktop after some cutscene (for me it was in doctor
office and scarlett room into otherworld) just press esc to pass scene.
As biggest fan of Silent Hill phenomenon, anyone know why Downpour didnt come out for pc?
Maybe because of conversion from consoles?
Hope this help in this good game
