Hello, I created a patcher to help people install Trespasser CE. You can download it here:
https://mega.nz/#!sYxFUaJa!IhDxBNg646XJ ... 8kWzgiYAv4 (large version, 250MB)
Instructions:
1. Create a folder in anywhere of your hard drive, e.g. "D:\games\Trespasser".
2. Copy Data folder from Trespasser game CD-ROM into the Trespasser folder. It would be like "D:\games\Trespasser\Data\"
3. Rename all *.spz files in Data folder to *.swp file.(see note)
4. Run tres_ce_patcher_large.exe, choose your Trespasser folder.
5. Wait for the patcher to finish.
6. Run the trespass.exe in your Trespasser folder to play the game.
The Trespasser folder can be copied to any computer and play, it's portable.:)

Note:
If users can use swpz to extract swp files first, the patcher can be made even smaller, Only 31.7MB. However, the procedures will be a little more complicated.

Hey, long time.

This is quite cool. I like how it can also check if the patcher has already been run on the files or not, and that it checks so it is the correct ones (it gave an error on my custom mouse .bmp). Really helpful :)

And for people who are worried, here are VirusTotal results of the two (all cleaned):

tres_ce_patcher_test.exe (Big Patcher): https://www.virustotal.com/#/file/ed3de ... /detection
tres_ce_patcher_test2.exe (Small Patcher): https://www.virustotal.com/#/file/e1807 ... /detection

Thanks for the virus scans.:)

A few days ago someone asked on a discussion board in Taiwan if anyone knows a old FPS dinosaur game he played long time ago. I know it's Trespasser and the problem comes next: if he managed to get a disc, it would be quite complicated to install and play it. There are many tools that can make binary patcher to just modify file content instead of packaging all changed files and extract them. So I made these patchers to help people get Trespasser update more easily. Hopefully there's only one version of retail disc out there, otherwise the file checking will fail.

Thanks. :)

Updated both links today. Changes:
- add tres-ce release-note.txt and troubleshooting.txt into doc folder.
- fix tpasspass.exe typo, should be trespass.exe instead.

Damn why I didn't notice that typo.

There is a UK and US version, where the difference is that for the US version you can register your game but the file contents are the same so it should work on both versions. The only version it might not work on is non-English ones as they are the patched version already, but I don't remember if it only the game that is patched on those and not the level files anyway :)
