First of all, a big thanks to Hey Jake for putting down so much time and effort in updating the game!
This update will provide a bunch of fixes for various issues newer computers and operating systems have with Nolf.
For a full list of changes and download, check author's website below
Or From this site: Modernizer 1.006 patch3.1
To open 7-zip files (7z), you'll need a program such as Z-zip or Winrar. I will be using Winrar at this time.
The installation will replace a couple of files such as Lithtech.exe, d3d.ren, defctrls.cfg. If you worry about breaking the game, you could make a copy of the whole nolf folder first. I have no issue running both versions though.
Right click the newly downloaded file;
Browse to where your No One Lives Forever installation is located. Mine is in a custom location (G:\NOLF). I just tagged the NOLF folder.
Then hit extract
Overwrite when asked, and you're done with installing
You may have to set compatibility or run nolf.exe as administrator in order to save settings ingame as well
I never had to do this but I hear others have struggled with this.
Right click NOLF.EXE and choose Properies, then choose Compatibility
Make sure to set compatibility to Vista, not XP
Now start the NOLF launcher and hit Advanced
Then add Modernizer on the right side by double clicking it on the left side
Check the Always load these reziles and hit Ok
Update is now loaded, and you can start the game.
