# Croc: Legend of the Gobbos!
This has been a passion project of mine for several months. I loved the original Croc as a kid, and have always wanted to see it restored to its former glory. This is my attempt to make that happen. I hope you enjoy it.

### System Requirements

At the very least, Croc requires a graphics card that supports the __OpenGL 3.2 Core Specification__ and a processor that supports __SSE2__. Any video card since 2010 and any processor that supports Windows 8 is likely to work.

In order to run the game at 4K UHD (3840x2160), at least an Nvidia GTX970 (or its AMD equivalent) is recommended.

### Troubleshooting/FAQ
* Help, the game crashes on startup.
  - Read the system requirements.
* The game runs slowly in caves or in areas with lots of lights.
  - Changing the lighting to "Medium Lighting FX".
  - See the known issues section for more information.
* Where are my saved games and configuration files stored?
  - ```${FOLDERID_SavedGames}\Croc```
  - This is most likely ```C:\Users\USER\Saved Games\Croc```
* Where's my 64-bit build?
  - Sorry, not happening anytime soon. Some core parts of the engine rely on the system being 32-bit, and would need a disproportionate amount of work to decouple it.
* Why no Linux port?
  - The work required to port to Linux overlaps significantly with that required to do a 64-bit build. Only after that is done, will I consider a Linux port.
* Can I use my own ```OpenAL.dll``` or the one provided by my system?
  - Yes, but Croc requires the ```AL_SOFT_loop_points``` extension. Without it, music and sound won't function properly.

### Known Issues
* On lesser machines, the game runs slowy/chugs along in areas with lots of lights.
  - Cause:
    - This is because the game uses forward rendering, which doesn't scale well with
  increasing numbers of lights. In big O notation, this is ```O(num_fragments * num_lights)```. The engine is hard-coded to support a maximum of 48 light sources.
    - Areas such as caves have a large amount of point lights, and when "Super Lighting FX" is enabled, each sparkle also has a light attached to it.
  - Solutions:
    - Lower the resolution. Compared to rendering at 1024x768, rendering at 1920x1080 is 2.6x more-pixels, and 3840x2160 is 10.5x more pixels.
    - Change lighting to "Medium Lighting FX". This caps the maximum number of lights at 4.


### Remarks
This version of Croc: Legend of the Gobbos! makes heavy use of several third-party projects.
I would like to thank the authors for their hard work and effort.

      This is an unofficial Update for "Croc: Legend of the Gobbos". It updates the game to the later release.
      The later release has support for DirectX 5, among a couple of file changes.
      This version is (from what I've heard) the only one that works with fan patches and fixes.

      The original update patches for DYSNOMIA and DYSNOMIA ExBurst retrieved from 2CCP's defunct website using the Internet Archive and downloading the original files from their (still active) Google Drive links. The included readme file features details about each patch and how to use them to upgrade the original DYSNOMIA (the original Comiket 75 release) to DYSNOMIA ExBurst or to update the latter from a later re-release (e.g. DLsite, the Comiket 77 release). These patches are uploaded for posterity and provided as-is.
