Issues fixed

Corrupted graphics on modern systems

Use SilentPatch[14]

Low frame rate

Use SilentPatch[14]

Very slow in-game mouse-movement

Negative mouse acceleration is forced in-game and can't be disabled. It gets significantly worse the higher your mouse polling rate is high or DPI is low. It can cause very slow mouse-movement in-game, making it hard to accurately aim with your weapon.[19]
Use SilentPatch and set camera speed multiplier[20]
  1. Install SilentPatch.
  2. Set CameraSpeedMultiplier value (create this value if they don't exist yet) in <path-to-game>\settings.ini to the desired float value.[20].
Use Scarface Fusion Fix[21]
Can possibly make mouse movement too fast with no way to adjust it.[21]
Workaround: Lower the mouse's polling rate through hardware or software options to a lower value like 125hz[22]
Option not available for all mice.
Workaround: Set mouse DPI very high to a value like 12000 through hardware or software options[23]
Option not available for all mice.

Run the game at screen refresh rate

The game defaults to a 60 Hz refresh rate. Enforcing a 60 FPS cap is still recommended.
Override refresh rate set by game[24]
  1. Download and extract dgVoodoo 2.
  2. Copy D3D9.dll from the MS\x86\ folder to the game folder.
  3. Run dgVoodoo, and add the game folder to the list.
  4. Enable the Enumerate refresh rates option.
  5. Go to the DirectX tab, and set the desired resolution (e.g. 1920x1080, 119Hz).
  6. (Optional) Disable the dgVoodoo Watermark option to prevent the dgVoodoo logo from showing on game launch.
  7. Click OK to apply changes.

Scarface Fusion Fix

Fixes gamepad support and very slow in-game mouse-movement, while adding several optional features like windowed mode, modern gamepad control scheme, FPS limit and skippable intro videos.
Install Fusion Fix[9]
  1. Install SilentPatch (includes ASI Loader this mod depends on).
  2. Download and extract the Scarface Fusion Fix archive to <path-to-game>.
    • d3d9.dll and d3d9.ini are optional as they are part of a d3d9 wrapper, which only allows to set an FPS limit, show performance metrics and allow for windowed and borderless windowed modes in d3d9.ini. All other files are responsible for the other fixes and should always be extracted.


Remastered Project

All NPCs textures have been enhanced, with Tony's face/suits/models remastered and color corrected.
Most missing effects from the PlayStation 2 release have been restored, with alternative PlayStation 2 gun sparks.
New background music and cut effects for some cutscenes.
Added XInput controller support.
Lots of textures ranging from adverts to billboards have been enhanced.
Includes SilentPatch.
Lacks multilingual support.

Xbox Rain Droplets

Basic implementation of Xbox rain droplets from SkyGFX for other games.

    Very slow and inconsistent mouse-movement occurs, making it very hard to aim properly and look around with your mouse
  20. 20.0 20.1 Verified by User:Mrtnptrs on 2023-01-20
    Tested with my mouse at 1000 Hz polling rate 1600 DPI. CameraSpeedMultiplier=10 delivered the best results for me; good mouse movement, while being less uncomfortably fast than Fusion Fix.
  21. 21.0 21.1 Verified by User:Mrtnptrs on 2023-01-20
    Makes movement of the mouse much easier, maybe too easy as with my mouse at 1000 Hz polling rate 1600 DPI it goes a bit too quickly for my feeling with no way to adjust it.
  22. Verified by User:Mrtnptrs on 2022-09-17
    Setting mouse polling rate to 125 through Logitech G Hub fixed my in-game mouse acceleration issues.
  23. Verified by User:Mrtnptrs on 2022-09-18
    Had same effect as reducing the polling rate. Set through Logitech G Hub
