Hasn't it been for quite long?
Perspectively, yes. But i mean 3D as in the environment and worms and other assets. There was less environmental variation in those games although the dynamic water was nice.

    GriftGFX script extender functionality (at least temporarily) (44 minutes ago)

    GriftGFX Even games with robust toolkits are often enhanced by third party tools. Skyrim is a good example. There's still a lot of folks playing the original version on the PC because the re-release broke (44 minutes ago)

    GriftGFX Ironically the last thing I had to hack to get to run correctly was a Microsoft Game Studios title. That bodes well for the future :P (46 minutes ago)

    Melmoth i have run some injectors/hacks on a few games to fix certain limitations of resolution or such, but not since Dark Souls 1. (51 minutes ago)
  • Melmoth
    Melmoth i rarely use mods. last time was xcom2, and that supports mods out of the box. I'm not that into replacing models in WWE, GTAV or SFV. But ofc, for people who live for that stuff it's not a good thing (53 minutes ago)
