    I got in to see him this evening. They moved Owen out of intensive care this morning. He has a long way to go and four more surgeries over the next year, but his progress has been amazing so far. The nurse told me that he's getting lots of visitors now. Room 4413 Miami Valley Hospital. They've arrested the hit and run driver, an experienced lawyer has taken Hobbit's case, and there is a video showing the whole thing, so they have a strong case. The Area Code is 937. Someone would need to answer for him, as he's immobile, and on morphine, and oxycontin pain killers.

    A new entry has been added to Add-Ons Library, category CFS 3 Other Add-Ons - Effects Description: These files are installed into the CFS3 main directory the same way as AnKor's previous versions. This package includes some of my personal modifications, including new water files in the Effects folder, and a couple of adjusted .fx files (the originals are included with - Copy added to the names) in the Shader30 folder. These adjusted .fx files include several new variables near their tops that will let you fine tune the look of some of the effects. The suggested values are listed in the comments for the variable. The foamamount value in SeaWater.fx is dependent on the water files you're using and is the cut-off brightness that switches the rendering animation from water to foam....

    The updated package will be available here once the moderators have had a chance to review and activate it. http://www.sim-outhouse.com/sohforums/local_links.php?catid=161&linkid=21670 This adds the revised dll available above to the 13 Jul 16 package posted to the library previously, so if you have both of those merged already you really don't need this.

    The d3d8.ini and d3d8.dll files go in the same place as cfs3.exe. (You may want to edit the ini file to suit your preferences, as described in the readme file.) The shaders30 folder goes in as is. The optional water textures go in the Effects\Fxtextures folder. (Back Up Your Originals!)

    There were a couple of Windows Updates back in the spring of 2016 that ruined my install of CS2 in Win 7. (disappearing tool bars, hiding image windows, dialog boxes sent behind everything that could not be brought forward, etc.). For a time I was able to find and delete the offending updates, but lately it has gotten to the point where nothing seemed to repair it. That was one of the reasons I finally had to bite the bullet and "Upgrade" to Win 10. For now it seems to be working normally again, but it's only been a couple of days so far...

    Wow! Will be praying for sure. I'm relieved it seems he's improving, but sounds like a very long road ahead. Thanks Andy and stump for keeping us informed! P.S. Owen, didn't anyone tell you you can't ride a motorcycle upside down?

    His is still in Intensive Care, but his status has changed from Critical to Serious this morning. It's hard to imagine Owen being too serious, but that's what they officially determined him to be at this time.

    I've just spent 30 hours upgrading my Win 7 machine to Win 10, and I'm not through everything yet. I have 16 different installs and when I did the upgrade it managed to keep them all in place but annoyingly delete all of the folders set up by MultiCFS3. (I wish I had thought ahead to save them all somewhere to avoid having to customize each one again) :dizzy: They won't run in Win 10 as is, but I'm successfully running them all in Win 7 compatibility mode. Because I had a copy of my recent configoverrides posted here a few days ago I was able to use those without needing to go through the whole low color, low rez start-up trick posted above. I did discover that my G-Sync monitor was not wanting to play nice with Win 10 in that it would only work in a few of my installs. After...

    Owen has had a hard life, and that has made him tough enough to get through most anything with the sweet spirit I've always seen from him. I know that he has the strength that only God can provide right there at his side to carry him through this. My friend, you are in my prayers! (He's the one on the left)

    I've run the 22 July d3d8.dll through testing with 8 different installs, and they all work fine. The FPS increase versus the one from back in March is still intact, so these should be good to go for everyone until someone finds something else that needs to be resolved. When things settle down with the SOH server I'll see about uploading this fix to the Library.
