  11. Red Dead Redemption 2 ultrawide, multimonitor, FOV mod

    The tool removes black bars from the in-game cutscenes, cinematic cameras, shops and a number of other areas at 21:9 and wider resolutions. Since version 2.0 it also removes pillarboxing from the photo mode. Since version 3.0, it allows for custom FOV adjustment.
    Launch the game first, then the tool. The password for the archive is pcgw
    As expected from a trainer based on CE components, this tool does get falsely flagged by some anti-virus software as a trojan, while the rest correctly mark it as a "hacktool".
    Use the tool provided here at own risk and ideally avoid playing RDR Online without completely disabling the fix - especially the FOV hack.
    Tested at 2560x1080, 3840x1080 and 5760x1080. Additionally confirmed as working by two volunteers from WSGF.

  20. Tomb Raider Mouse Helper (for TR1-5)

    Tomb Raider Mouse Helper
    v1.2
    for Tomb Raider 1-5 (1996-2000) by Core Design
     
    This Windows utility for the first five Tomb Raider games (I, II, III, The Last Revelation and Chronicles) runs in the background and provides mouse control in those games by converting mouse movements into key presses. This allows you to move the mouse to turn left and right and, while holding the right mouse button, look all around. It also enables firing with the left button, drawing weapons with the middle button and easily setting up WASD or ESDF control schemes.
     
    Features:
    Move the mouse to turn left and right (also can be used to rotate menus). Press and hold the right mouse button to look around (without moving). Press the left mouse button to fire and grab ledges (also can be used to select from menus). Press the middle mouse button to draw (and re-holster) weapons. Use the WASD (or any) keys to run, go backward and sidestep left and right. Scroll the mouse wheel or press left/right on it to rotate menus.  
    Instructions:
    Simply run TombRaiderMouseHelper.exe and then run the game.
    (Optional) Create a shortcut that will run the helper and game together:
    Click on the "Create shortcut" button on the helper's main window. Drag and drop either the game's shortcut or its .exe file onto the next window. (This will create a new shortcut that runs the helper, then the game, then exits the helper when the game exits)  
    Configuration:
    There are a few options that you can configure on first run, via the tray icon or via in-game hotkeys:
     Whether to minimize the GUI to the tray on launch. Default: Off. Applies only to running the helper by itself, not via shortcut. Toggle on to launch the helper silently to the tray.  Whether to exit when the game exits. Default: On. Applies only to running the helper by itself, not via shortcut. Toggle off to leave the helper running.  The sensitivity of the mouse. Default: the middle mark. It's recommended that you don't adjust this unless you find that you really need to. Whether to invert the mouse's Y axis. Default: On (because the game defaults to that) Toggle off to make panning up look up and down look down. Apples only to Look mode (holding the right button).  Whether to map keys to movement controls and other actions. Default: On. Toggle off or edit if any of the mappings are unwanted.  
    Notes:
    If the game is run as administrator, the helper must also be run as administrator in order to work. If you created a desktop shortcut from the helper's menu, then try running the shortcut as an administrator. All features will work as expected only if the game is configured to use the default keys. That's because this helper maps buttons and keys to those specific keys. For example, the left mouse button is mapped to the Ctrl key, which is the default key for Fire. If you change Fire to be a different key, then the left mouse button will stop working until you assign the Ctrl key to something else. If you want to disable these mappings, you can do so in the helper's menu. For example, if you've already configured the game to use WASD (or you prefer ESDF), you'll want to disable the WASD mappings. This helper works with the original DOS version of the first game (Tomb Raider I), but works better with the Windows version, which you can convert the DOS version to with the following instructions: https://pcgamingwiki.com/wiki/Tomb_Raider_(1996)#Run_the_game_without_DOSBox  
    Modification:
    This utility is simply a compiled AutoHotkey script.
    If you're not satisfied with the given mappings or functionality and would like to tweak them, the source script (TombRaiderMouseHelper.ahk) is in the "src" folder. You will need to download AutoHotkey from www.autohotkey.com to compile it. In the folder where you installed/extracted AutoHotkey will be a "Compiler" folder. In there is Ahk2Exe.exe, which you can use to compile your modified TombRaiderMouseHelper.ahk into a new TombRaiderMouseHelper.exe. An icon for you to use is in the folder with TombRaiderMouseHelper.ahk.
    You don't need to compile or worry about TombRaiderMouseHelperGUI.ahk (which mostly has code related to the GUI, not the game). It'll be included automatically when TombRaiderMouseHelper.ahk is compiled.
    For help with using AutoHotkey, see the help file (AutoHotkey.chm) that comes with it.

  22. SDL2 Gamepad Tool

    Official website: http://www.generalarcade.com/gamepadtool/
     
    It's a simple GUI tool to create/modify gamepad mappings for games that use SDL2 Game Controller API. Created to be an alternative to Steam Bigpicture gamepad configurator.
     
    Features
    Simple graphical UI
    Automatic updates of mappings database from https://github.com/gabomdq/SDL_GameControllerDB
    Local storage for newly created or changed mappings
     
    How To Use
    Connect a gameapad to the computer
    Launch the app. If you connected mupltiple gamepads select the one you want to use in a dropdown
    If the app displays that mapping is available go to step 5
    If mapping is not available or available but you would like to change it press Make New Mapping and follow the instructions. Go step 3
    There are two approches how to force games to pick new mapping. First is to set environmental variable, then all SDL2 games will pick new mapping automatically. To do this simply click Set Mapping As Environment Variable. Second approches is to find mappings database file in the game folder, usualy it's called gamecontrollerdb.txt and add mapping string to the end of the file

  23. SkyNET Mouse Helper

    SkyNET Mouse Helper
    v1.2
    for The Terminator: SkyNET (1996) and The Terminator: Future Shock (1995) by Bethesda Softworks
     
    This Windows utility allows for cycling weapons with the mouse wheel in SkyNET and Future Shock when played in DOSBox under Windows. It runs in the background while you're playing and maps the mouse wheel to its own next and previous weapon functions (because neither game has them). It's been tailored specifically for these two games and, despite the name, works with Future Shock even when it's played outside of SkyNET.
     
    Features:
    * Scroll the mouse wheel up/down to cycle weapon types (numbers 1-7 on the keyboard) or all 13 available weapons.
    * Press the middle mouse button or scroll left/right to cycle weapons of the same type (i.e. weapons that share the same # key).
    * Press ~ to cycle up to the next weapon and Shift + ~ to cycle down to the previous weapon (for mice without wheels).
    * Press Shift + F10 to show and hide this list.
    * Press Shift + F11 to switch between weapon cycle modes (cycling through only the 7 weapon types or all 13 available weapons).
    * Press Shift + F12 to toggle automatic weapon skipping.
    * Press Pause/Break to pause and un-pause the helper (disabling and re-enabling all above features).
     
    Instructions:
    Simply run SkyNETMouseHelper.exe and then run the game.
     
    (Optional) Create a shortcut that will run the helper and game together:
    1. Click on the "Create shortcut" button on the helper's main window.
    2. Drag and drop your existing shortcut onto the area at the top of the next window
    ..or..
    Build a shortcut from scratch by selecting your DOSBox executable and, optionally, your DOSBox .conf file and game executable.
    (Both options will create a new shortcut that runs the helper, then DOSBox (+ the game), then exit the helper when DOSBox exits)
     
    Configuration:
    There are a few options that you can configure on first run, via the tray icon or via in-game hotkeys:
    * Whether to show the GUI window. Default: On. Applies only to running the helper by itself, not via shortcut.
    Toggle off to launch the helper silently to the tray.
    * Whether to exit when DOSBox exits. Default: On. Applies only to running the helper by itself, not via shortcut.
    Toggle off to leave the helper running.
    * Whether scrolling with the mouse wheel should be inverted from what most games assign by default. Default: Off.
    Toggle on to assign scrolling up to Next Weapon and scrolling down to Previous Weapon (off is the reverse).
    * Whether scrolling with the mouse wheel cycles weapon types or all weapons. Default: Weapon types. Hotkey: Shift+F11.
    Toggle to "all weapons" if you still want to access your older, less powerful weapons in the mouse wheel rotation.
    * Whether scrolling with the mouse wheel should skip unavailable weapons. Default: On. Hotkey: Shift+F12.
    Toggle off if it doesn't work as expected or weapons cycle uncontrollably.
     
    Notes:
    * Each time that you load a savegame, change weapons once (with the number keys or the mouse wheel) to "calibrate" the utility. That's necessary because the utility can't know which weapon is selected when a savegame is loaded and needs you to change weapons once to know. If you use the mouse wheel, you may end up with a weapon that you weren't expecting, but it'll work as expected from then on.
    * The option to automatically skip unavailable weapons (on by default) works by reading the screen and could, theoretically, fail with some users' graphics configurations. If cycling weapons makes weapon switching go haywire or skip weapons that you do have, you can disable the option by pressing Shift+F12 in the game or toggling it in the tray icon's GUI.
    * If anything doesn't work in fullscreen that works in windowed mode, try changing the "output" mode in your DOSBox .conf file. (ex. to "overlay").
     
    Modification:
    This utility is simply a compiled AutoHotkey script. If you're not satisfied with the given mappings or functionality and would like to tweak them, the source script (SkyNETMouseHelper.ahk) is provided in the "src" folder. You will need to download AutoHotkey from www.autohotkey.com to compile it. In the folder where you installed/extracted AutoHotkey will be a "Compiler" folder.

It'll be included automatically when SkyNETMouseHelper.ahk is compiled. For help with using AutoHotkey, see the help file (AutoHotkey.chm) that comes with it.

  24. Dune II Mouse Helper

    Dune II Mouse Helper
    v1.2
    for Dune II: The Building of a Dynasty (1992) by Westwood Studios
     
    This Windows utility allows for better mouse control in Dune II when played in DOSBox under Windows. It runs in the background while you're playing and maps the game's built-in keyboard commands to the right and middle mouse buttons and the mouse wheel. This allows you to give context sensitive orders with the mouse buttons (like in more modern RTSes) instead of using keyboard commands or mousing over to the command bar. It also allows for scrolling the map with both the mouse wheel and the WASD keys, as well as other minor convenience features. There are modern Dune II recreations that offer these features and more, but this utility is designed for gamers who prefer to play the original DOS game in DOSBox, yet find it frustrating to use the original control scheme. This utility tries to add a little more user friendliness without reducing the nostalgia.
     
    Features:
    * Right click to order units to move, attack or harvest (see Notes below).
    * Right click to build or place structures, as well as pause or resume construction.
    * Right click and hold to repair or upgrade structures.
    * Middle click to explicitly order units to attack or harvest (for times when right click isn't ideal; see Notes below).
    * Middle click to open or close a structure's production screen.
    * Left click and hold to auto-select units and structures as you mouse over them (for quickly checking health).
    * Move the mouse wheel up/down/left/right to scroll around the map.
    (A horizontal scrolling mouse wheel and Windows Vista or later are required for left/right scrolling)
    * Hold down Shift while scrolling down/up or click the 4th/5th mouse buttons to scroll left/right.
    (For mice without horizontal scrolling mouse wheels or pre-Vista machines)
    * Use the mouse wheel to scroll units and structures on the production screens (then right click to build them).
    * Press WASD to scroll around the map (can be disabled).
    * Press Esc to open the game's Options menu (which, normally, requires pressing F2).
    * Press F1-F3 a second time to toggle their screens off (rather than having to press Esc to).
    * Press Shift + F10 to show and hide this list.
    * Press Shift + F11 to toggle scrolling with WASD.
    * Press Shift + F12 to toggle auto-selecting units and structures while holding left click.
    * Press Pause/Break to pause and un-pause the helper (disabling and re-enabling all above features).
    * Supports Dune II v1.07 and v1.00, Super Dune II and Super Dune II Classic.
     
    Instructions:
    Simply run Dune2MouseHelper.exe and then run the game.
     
    (Optional) Create a shortcut that will run the helper and game together:
    1. Click on the "Create shortcut" button on the helper's main window.

    * Whether to exit when DOSBox exits. Default: On. Applies only to running the helper by itself, not via shortcut.
    Toggle off to leave the helper running.
    * Whether to enable scrolling the map with the WASD keys. Default: On. Hotkey: Shift+F11.
    Toggle off to have the WASD keys perform their normal command functions.
    * Whether to enable auto-selecting of units and structures while holding left click. Default: On. Hotkey: Shift+F12.
    Toggle off if you accidentally trigger it while performing regular left clicks or it slows down minimap panning.
     
    Notes:
    * Right clicking to harvest works only in v1.07 of Dune II. In v1.0, Super Dune II and Super Dune II Classic, use middle click to harvest. If you're not sure which you have, send a harvester to a spice patch with right click and, if it doesn't harvest when it gets there, you know to use middle click.
    * Right click doesn't actually send an attack command because that would cause units to attack the ground when you meant only to move them. Instead, right click sends a move command, since units will automatically enter guard mode and engage enemy units when they get to the destination. This works for attacking in most cases, but you'll need to do a middle click to explicitly order units to attack worms or from a distance.
    * When right clicking to build, place, hold or resume production, try to keep the mouse pointer away from other structures or units to avoid inadvertently selecting them. That's because right click is also used for giving unit orders and, therefore, must send a left click to complete those.
    * If anything doesn't work in fullscreen that works in windowed mode, try changing the "output" mode in your DOSBox .conf file. (ex. to "overlay").
     
    Modification:
    This utility is simply a compiled AutoHotkey script. If you're not satisfied with the given mappings or functionality and would like to tweak them, the source script (Dune2MouseHelper.ahk) is provided in the "src" folder. You will need to download AutoHotkey from www.autohotkey.com to compile it. In the folder where you installed/extracted AutoHotkey will be a "Compiler" folder. In there is Ahk2Exe.exe, which you can use to compile your modified Dune2MouseHelper.ahk into a new Dune2MouseHelper.exe. An icon for you to use is in the folder with Dune2MouseHelper.ahk. You don't need to compile or worry about Dune2MouseHelperFunctions.ahk (which mostly has code related to the GUI, not the game). It'll be included automatically when Dune2MouseHelper.ahk is compiled. For help with using AutoHotkey, see the help file (AutoHotkey.chm) that comes with it.

  25. Outlaws Mouse Helper

    Outlaws Mouse Helper
    v1.2
    for Outlaws (1997) by LucasArts
     
    This utility for Outlaws allows for cycling weapons with the mouse wheel and using the mouse for a few other functions. It runs in the background while you're playing and maps the game's built-in keyboard commands to the mouse wheel and right and middle mouse buttons, helping you to make greater use of the mouse and less use of keyboard commands.
     
    Features:
    * Scroll the mouse wheel up/down to change weapons.
    * Middle click to toggle the rifle scope (once acquired).
    * Hold Q while scrolling up/down or scroll right/left by itself to change inventory items.
    * Press Q to use the selected inventory item.
    * Right click to light dynamite and stab with the knife (while also keeping it as reload for guns).
    * Hold Tab while scrolling up/down to change automap levels.
    * Hold Tab while middle clicking to toggle all automap levels.
    * Press ~ to cycle up to the next weapon and Shift + ~ to cycle down to the previous weapon (for mice without wheels).
    * Press Shift + F10 to show and hide this list.
    * Press Shift + F11 to toggle automatic skipping of unavailable weapons while scrolling.
    * Press Pause/Break to pause and un-pause the helper (disabling and re-enabling all above features).
     
    Instructions:
    Simply run OutlawsMouseHelper.exe and then run the game.
     
    (Optional) Create a shortcut that will run the helper and game together:
    1. Click on the "Create shortcut" button on the helper's main window.
    2. Drag and drop your existing shortcut or Olwin.exe onto the next window.
    (This will create a new shortcut that runs the helper, then the game, then exits the helper when the game exits)
     
    Configuration:
    There are a few options that you can configure on first run, via the tray icon or via in-game hotkeys:
    * Whether to show the GUI window. Default: On. Applies only to running the helper by itself, not via shortcut.
    Toggle off to launch the helper silently to the tray.
    * Whether to exit when Outlaws exits. Default: On. Applies only to running the helper by itself, not via shortcut.
    Toggle off to leave the helper running.
    * Whether scrolling with the mouse wheel should be inverted from what most games assign by default. Default: Off.
    Toggle on to assign scrolling up to Next Weapon and scrolling down to Previous Weapon (off is the reverse).
    * Whether scrolling with the mouse wheel should skip unavailable weapons. Default: On. Hotkey: Shift+F11.
    Toggle off if it doesn't work as expected or your weapons cycle uncontrollably.
     
    Notes:
    * If the game is run as administrator, the helper must also be run as administrator in order to work.
    * This utility works best if you have Reload (default) or Fire 2 set for the right mouse button and you don't already use the middle mouse button much, since those buttons get taken over when you equip the dynamite/knife and rifle, respectively.
    * Each time that you load a savegame, change weapons once (with the number keys or the mouse wheel) to "calibrate" the utility. That's necessary because the utility can't know which weapon is selected when a savegame is loaded and needs you to change weapons once to know. If you use the mouse wheel, you may end up with a weapon that you weren't expecting, but it'll work as expected from then on.
    * The option to automatically skip unavailable weapons (on by default) works only if you're standing still, unfortunately. That's because it reads the screen and too many things are changing when you're moving. If you're moving while trying to scroll to a weapon that you don't have, it'll simply behave as though the feature is disabled and not change your weapon. In those cases, keep scrolling to get to the weapon that you want.
    * Because the auto-skip option works by reading the screen, it could, theoretically, fail with some users' graphics configurations. If cycling weapons makes weapon switching go haywire or skip even weapons that you have, you can disable the feature by pressing Shift+F11 in the game or toggling it in the tray icon's GUI.
    * Because the helper uses the Q key for inventory use and scrolling, do not assign it to anything in the game's key bindings or else it might interfere. If you really want to change or disable the key so that you can re-assign it, you can modify the script via the section below.
