Serious Sam Patch

This custom Serious Sam Classic patch includes a lot of modern enhancements that aren’t present in the original code, nor the official Steam patches.
 
 
This project is based on Serious Engine 1 SDK, meaning that it’s perfectly compatible with vanilla classic games.

Key features

  • More screen resolutions. Includes 4:3, 16:9, 16:10 and 21:9 resolutions as well as other resolutions of similar formats.
  • Borderless window mode.
  • Custom FOV command that works in all gamemodes.
  • FOV patching based on aspect ratio. Works on top of custom FOV.
  • Toggleable red screen on damage.
  • Working server list via new query manager.
  • Fixed mip distances on wider resolutions.
  • Weapon viewmodel FOV is now adjusted according to the aspect ratio.

 
New features are available for toggling under the new menu in Options -> EXE Patch Options.
 
 

Differences with the Steam patch

 

  • Way more new features that also work properly.
  • All of the new features can be disabled if needed.
  • Lack of QEffectsGL support (it only really added bloom for OpenGL mode).

How to install

  1. Download – [github.com]  desired version of the patch (TheFirstEncounter_1.05.zip or TheSecondEncounter_1.07.zip for Steam).
  2. Navigate to your Serious Sam installation folder (e.g. “C:\Program Files (x86)\Steam\steamapps\common\Serious Sam Classic The Second Encounter” or via right clicking on the Steam game and going to Manage -> Browse local files).
  3. Extract contents of the ZIP archive into it.
  4. (Optional) Go to Bin directory and rename SeriousSam_Custom.exe to SeriousSam.exe to make Steam start that instead.

 

Notes

 

  • You can rename the EXE file to anything you wish, just make sure to backup the Steam one if you’re replacing it.
  • If you get an error “Cannot set function patch…” upon game start, make sure that you’ve installed the executable for the right game version. Otherwise try restarting your PC.
