Hello there! I am a long-time Trespasser fan and have just now decided to make an account here.

But not to bore you with my rambling... I actually do have a Trespasser-related problem. I have installed/uninstalled/reinstalled Trespasser too many times to remember for various reasons. However, one recurring issue is that some values in regedit.exe simply are not showing up in the Trespasser directory. What I'm trying to do is enhance the game by using TresCom's "Tips & Tricks: Registry Hacks", but the problem with this is that values such as "Max Recommended Tex Dim" and "Z Buffer Bitdepth" never show up. I am using Windows 7 64-bit, so the directory Trespasser found in regedit.exe is different for me.

That directory, precisely, is HKEY_LOCAL_MACHINE\SOFTWARE\Wow6432Node\DreamWorks Interactive\Trespasser.

Many values do appear, but the ones I need to change to use the game-enhancing registry hacks do not appear. As far as the everyday, usual Trespasser playing goes, I never run into any other issues with Trespasser that are truly notable. Yes, I am using Big Red's ATX patch with the latest version (2.13, I believe), and do have Tres installed to my hard drive, with the CD contents under C:\trescd.

If anyone can offer any help, I would be grateful to say the least.

Nevermind. Turns out I could just load up all the game's levels into Trespasser: CE's directories and use tpass.cfg to edit these values.

Yes. The retail installation use the registry valutes, and you will see all of them after you changed to hardware mode IIRC. Those standalone engines (CT, Twiligt, JPDS, Demo etc.) uses the .ini files in the directory :)

Welcome to TresCom btw!

Hi, and welcome...
Those values don't show up simply because they aren't created during the installation, so you have to add them manually...

Ah, I see. After running trespassATX2.exe with hardware mode the values appeared; it also generated atxconfig.cfg, which is a file that usually is very stubborn and doesn't want to generate for some reason.
