Brightness control in the game menu does not work. In general, the game starts with a bright picture.
Quick save also doesn't work.
Also, gamma correction does not work when I press F9 and F10

Congratulations on dealing with the sound problem.

I would like to add that only with this mod/fix the map often breaks and only a piece of it is visible, e.g. the right and bottom of the map are not visible.

I also noticed that the game often catches freeze. Mostly when I have to save the game, but also when I normally travel in the game. Such a freeze lasts up to 20-30 seconds and the game and the operating system are on an ssd disk and with no other game this happens (16GB of RAM)

This is my summary after passing the whole game - these are the errors I found:
- the sound is partly repaired - I played on TV with stereo sound - in cut scenes the speech was heard in the left speaker,
in the right there is silence
- there is a brighter image in the game than the original
- the brightness level cannot be adjusted in the game
- map visibility is damaged, only partial visibility is visible
- when I finished my game the messages "You have unlocked"  and "Would You like to save your game?" was missing - only available byttonsOK, YES, NO

There is still a problem with the correct display of the map in the vanilla and fix versions 1.6.0

Ive done all the steps but the game still runs really bad. At the very start when your in the hospital bed the FPS goes super low and stutters like crazy. I don't know what to do. My specs are: 15-8400. 16GB ram. RX 5700 XT

Disable the antivirus that prevents you from extracting this file.

You must start the game by clicking on the DLLinjector.exe file, not SilentHill.exe

i did that and ran the DLLinjector.exe as an admin. Set the games video settings to medium and 60hz but no luck 😞

I have downloaded both but still no luck 😞 i do wonder if i am installing them wrong

So by downloading "Fix by Steam" for example, you should extract the archive contents to the main folder where the SilentHill.exe file is (both exe files should be in the same directory), edit the file "Silent_Hill_Homecoming_PC_Fix.ini" to enter the screen resolution for example 1920x1080, fire up "DLLinjector.exe" and everything should work fine. If you did everything as I wrote and the game has low performance then the only thought that comes to my mind is that it is the fault of the graphics card, I use Nvidia cards and you Radeon...
