Windows Security says that DLLInjector.exe had a trojan attached to it. I'm not sure if that was a false positive, but it said that Trojan:Win32/Occamy.CED was affecting it. The download did work, and it unzipped fine after the password, but I'm just trying to be wary. (Edit: fixed Win21 to Win32)

the fix doesn't work for me, I copied all 4 files in the game's directory, launched dllinjector.exe and both processes (dllinjector and sh3) are running in the background (task manager) but nothing happens, the game doesn't load.

Without all these widescreen fixes, the game loads fine and i can change the resolution without issues in the options.

The fix is working fine with one exception, shadows are corrupted in some cutscenes. It only affects certain cutscenes, not all of them. I can reproduce a similar bug with shadows that affects the entire game, not just cutscenes, if I set a width/height rendering resolution that is different from the screen width/height. But no matter what I do I can't fix these specific cutscenes. I'm playing on a 1680*1050 (16:10) monitor, I've set the resolution size to 1680*1050, the rendering resolution to 1680*1050 as well. I tried to mess around with all the DOF and shadows resolution settings but nothing worked.

Here's a screenshot of what happens:

The cutscene right before that one with the rollercoaster has no issues, and the following one with Heather and Douglas talking works fine as well. But that segment in between just won't work properly.

Disregard my previous post, I found the culprit. It was the anti-aliasing. For some reason I had an old GPU profile for the game that was forcing Super Sampling AA. Deactivating it solved the issue.

for me, it doesn't work, now my Windows 10 even says that there is a virus or unwanted file in the dllinjector.exe. Without these files, SH3 load fine, so the problem is not with the game or my system

Doesn't work for me though game works fine without  it. Anyone have any luck? Windows 10 x64 pro.

It's a false postive. Probably setting off due to the generic name DLLinjector.exe pretty much looks like virus.exe to the antivirus lol. 

I'm having problems with the DOF, no matter what value I set it to.. it doesnt work. Does anyone else have this same issue?

maybe, anyway, the fix doesn't work for me, the game doesn't load (original DVD version) with it. Runs fine without.

Im having problems with glitchy shadows. I read very few cases like this and no solutions. It seems like shadows on cutscenes and during gameplay are off and broken, i tried messing with shadow resolution and every other option in the .ini file but it doesnt do anything for this particular problem. I've reinstalled the game and patch several times already. The problem still persists even without the patch.

If anybody had a similar problem and could fix it please let me know. Otherwise, thanks for the patch. Cheers.

I just played it on PCSX2 up to meeting Angela, it doesnt have shadows in that cutscene, so it might be the game. Idk if this helps you

Thanks for replying, sadly the problem is during gameplay also and i think it happens only in the PC version. Im not sure, but i saw a video of pcsx2 emulation and shadows look smooth and not glitchy so i guess its the pc version or maybe my computer (i hope not). Thanks anyway, have a great day.

Hello,

I'm using this patch and everything appears to be running intended, with the exception of multisampling. I set it to 8 in the .ini file but the in-game visuals do not seem to reflect that. Are any further steps needed or am I missing something?

 

Thanks!

Is there anyway to change the name of the game executable and still use this? For example, renaming the game executable to "silenthill3.exe" and then changing the target in the DLLInjector.ini seems like it'd work, but it doesn't for whatever reason - the injector launches correctly but the game doesn't launch at all. Turning on the logging options in Silent_Hill_3_PC_Fix.ini doesn't seem to give anything to go off, the console simply saying "Silent Hill 3 PC Fix Started!" and then closing after a few seconds.

I think this fix works (if it's really working for some) on the US/North American version of the game (5 CD version).

I have the retail European (DVD version) of the game and it's doesn't work (DLLInjector launches but not the game)

Same goes with SH4, i have the European DVD version and I think those 2-3 widescreen fixes work only with the US version.

Can somebody confirm it please ?
