Devil May Cry HD Collection is a game in the Devil May Cry series and includes remastered versions of Devil May Cry, Devil May Cry 2, and Devil May Cry 3: Special Edition.

A controller is recommended as keyboard support is bare bones, and there is no mouse support in-game.

Devil May Cry 1 is missing some video effects (like motion blur, depth of field) and has audio bugs.[2]

Devil May Cry 3 has various effects weakened (such as motion blur, ghosting, and depth of field) and textures lack transparency.[3][4] See shu_bham and cheburat0r's fixes and DMCHD Collection Helix Mod for restoring most textures. There are no mods for restoring Greed's bloom on the top portion of the coffin, Nevan's cutscene eye flashing, or the sign's flickering at the end for example.

DMC3 TEXTURE PACK by pepodmc

Some of the textures, Dante's bangs, Mission 7's Moon, Mission 20's demon world gate have been fixed.
Many others have been replaced with textures taken from Devil May Cry 4, changing the look significantly.

DMC1 TEXTURE PACK by TheGrimm_85

Most textures have been upscaled
Many have been replaced with very different, and sometimes lower detail, textures[6]

High frame rate

Applies to DMC 3 only.
Use DDMK[citation needed]
  1. Once DMC3 is running, press Ctrl+D to open the DDMK menu.
  2. Search for the menu entry Speed and set Main value to either 0.5 for 120 FPS or 60 divided by desired framerate for arbitrary FPS value. Example: 60/120 = 0.5, thus 0.5 would be the Main speed.
  3. Search for the menu entry System and set Frame Rate accordingly.
  4. Close DDMK menu and values will be applied automatically.
  5. See Run the game at screen refresh rate to force screen refresh rate in exclusive fullscreen.

Notes

Arbitrary framerate values such as 144 FPS have not been tested but should be possible. Using 120 FPS as primary example for game logic stability.
Physics puzzles get harder to solve (for example, the two spheres puzzle in Mission 16).

Issues unresolved

Devil May Cry 1 crashing on AMD Phenom/Athlon CPUs

Several users are reporting that Devil May Cry 1 will not run on AMD Phenom processors due to a lack of SSE4.1 support.[8]
DMC 2 and DMC 3 SE do not appear to have this problem.
The AMD FX lineup is not affected.

Issues fixed

The game/launcher won't launch

Download and install DirectX Redistributable (June 2010), Microsoft Visual C++ Redistributable 2015-2022 32-bit and 64-bit.

Run the game at screen refresh rate

Fullscreen mode defaults to 60 Hz even if the screen refresh rate is set higher than that.
Override refresh rate set by game[9]
  1. Download Devil May Cry HD Collection 3D Vision Fix.
  2. Extract the contents to the installation folder.
  3. Open d3dx.ini and go to the [Device] section.
  4. Uncomment the line ;refresh_rate=60 by removing the ; from the line and change value to 120 or higher depending on the display's refresh rate.

Devil May Cry 3 text appearing irregularly (squished/glitchy/flickering)

Mostly happens to AMD Graphics Drivers.
Regular text and subtitles may appear with garbled text underneath.
Use DXVK. More info here.
  1. Download the latest dxvk-xxx.tar.gz file.
  2. Open the archive and extract dxgi.dll and d3d11.dll from the x64 folder to the main installation folder. (same as dmc3.exe)
If DMC HD Fix by Lyall is installed, it's safe to overwrite d3d11.dll.
Fixes all text issues.
It can interfere with overlays from other products such as Fraps, Bandicam, Steam Overlay, etc.
Set dmc3.exe to run in compatibility mode to Windows 7
Only fixes the garbled artifacts, not the squished text.

Changes the look of the main menu screen by making the background black instead of white.
