New patch 1.3 for blue lights bug

Have managed to do a fix for the problem with the blue lights during boat scene 3.

After this patch is applied the game will skip onto scene 4 after 3 waves as though you had killed the sorcerers.

This fix works on the original, D2D and the Steam version as the file it patches is the same in all versions.

Let me know if you have any problems.

Download from either
http://www.sucklead.com/DCoTEPatch.zip
or
http://www.sucklead.com/DCoTEPatch.exe
(you need .NET framework 2 or 3.5 installed)

The bug is that on operating systems after XP you can't see the sorcerers on the reef to be able to shoot them when you zoom in with the cannon.

I got this game over christmas on sale (played through it a few years back and had a good, challenging experience; loved the atmosphere especially), should I install this patch before playing it? Does it require earlier versions of the patch? Is there anything else I should do to limit the possibility of encountering bugs?

Thanks!

It's only limiting bugs, enables features that were disabled in the final version and offers some cheats and also developer mode like flying.Flying was necessary at one point for me.

There is no "patch 1" or "patch 2" since there was never an official patch.

But still I'm having the problem in the air filles tunnes

Wait, what?

Cheats? Developer mode? FLYING?

Tell me more! I DL'd the file, but it's just an exe, no readme or anything.

Thank you so much!

Is there an ETA for the running speed bug at the end of the game? I can't change the running speed using the patch because it's all greyed out. Maybe it'd be easier if there a way I can fix that?

It actually a zoom in bug. where the cannon is supposed to give you a zoomed in view it doesn't shows sloppy programming on their part, great game with lousy programming.

try turning V-sync on for your video card (worked for me)

That works! I've tried all the other suggestions (lowering resolution, running on one core, staying along the left side of the exit cavern, etc.) and none of them made any difference. Enabled vertical sync in the nVidia control panel made the difference and allowed me to finish the game.

Why it did the trick is a mystery to me.

(NEVER MIND; FIGURED IT OUT)

Could anyone tell me why all the patch options are greyed out for me? This is the 5th computer I'm trying to run this game on, and I still can't get past that blue light bug.
