Comment: Mods to fix the stuff that got fixed? (Score 0) 83

This seems as good a place to ask as any:Is there a way to make this game play more like the original? I understand that the shadows and dynamic lighting have been ripped out, the whole thing is brighter and that "duct tape mod" is forced on you. All the hype over the last few months has made me want to play the original game again, complete with the "Oh, hell I can't see shit, what am I shooting at? I hope this works. I need new trousers. Again." vibe, not a dumbed down, shiny "remaster". Comparisons I've seen say that the old game struggles to hit 30fps on current gen hardware, whereas this code base can easily hit 100+ fps on an average rig. Is there a mod (yet) that gives us the best of both worlds?

In the UK, we have the Privacy In Electronic Communications (EC Directive) Regulations 2003 and the Data Protection Act 1998, which, between them, legally guarantee a certain expectation of privacy from nosy sysadmins or managers. There are some good laws here, thankfully; employees should always know their rights.
