Essential improvements


It is recommended to install this patch after updating a game to version 112100 / retail patch.
Verifying version of the game[citation needed]
  1. Go to Start MenuProgramsDeep Space Nine-The FallenHelp (The very last line shows the current build).
  2. If the build is "Build110800-d-US" or "Build110800-d-EU-sr", then the patch is needed.

Peixoto's patch

  • Peixoto's patch forced resolution allows high resolution without shrinking the HUD\menus. Super sampling anti-aliasing is also possible. Works with the OpenGL and Direct3D 7 renderers.

Demo levels

  • Fusion Creative Design created 3 special levels for a demo version of the game. These levels were later on released as a free addon for the full game and can be downloaded here (Convergence for Windows v1.1).

Issues fixed

Freeze when loading data from CD

For some reason, even if a full version of a game is installed, some data is still being loaded from CD. This may result in a freeze when using physical compact disk, due to game waiting for a disc drive to spin the disc and load a data from it.
Change registry entries[citation needed]
  1. Perform a full installation of the game.
  2. Open the Registry Editor and go to HKEY_LOCAL_MACHINE\SOFTWARE\Wow6432Node\The Collective Studios inc.\Deep Space Nine The Fallen\ds9thefallen\.
  3. Copy the value of installpath and paste it to CdPath.
Use a virtual CD drive[citation needed]
  1. Install the game from a virtual CD drive.
  2. Run the game using an image inside a virtual CD drive.

Camera keeps spinning, when a joystick is enabled

Lower joystick sensitivity[citation needed]
  1. Open a console by pressing ~.
  2. Type in: preferences.
  3. Open a Joystick tab.
  4. Lower both ScaleRUV and Scale XYZ values.

MSI Afterburner issues

Depending on the setting, the overlay may not be shown, or the game may crash upon pressing the overlay button.
Change the settings in RivaTuner[citation needed]
  1. After launching MSI Afterburner, open the RivaTunerStatisticsServer from the system tray.
  2. Add DS9.exe from <path-to-game>\system\ to the settings.
  3. Set "Application detection level" to "high" and Stealth mode to "ON".

Low-poly shadows cast on characters' models

By default, the DX11 renderer enables ASSAO, which causes some ugly shadows to appear on character models.
Change the DX11 renderer's settings
  1. Open the developer console with ~/Tab .
  2. Use the preferences command to open the Advanced Options window.
  3. Navigate to RenderingDirect3D 11 support.
  4. Set ASSAO to False.
