Heavy Metal Patch Resurfaces
10:31 AM | Michael Eilers | Comment on this story
This patch for Heavy Metal F.A.K.K. 2 was originally released in December of 2000, but was shuffled around for a while and became very difficult to find. Now an anonymous do-gooder has re-released this patch once again for those of you playing this futuristic 3D action/adventure.
The patch (actually just a new application) does not seem to have changed in the eight-month interval, but here is a refresher on what it fixes:
• Redesigned MP3 decompression buffers for much better speed and stability.The patch also fixes a nasty bug with using the Chainsword weapon. If you have picked up Heavy Metal through our excellent CompuExpert deal in the past few months, you definitely want to grab this patch.

• Increased sound mixahead to reduce sound skipping, especially on low-end machines.
• Increased free memory requirements to improve stability during level loading and eliminate texture white-out. You may need to increase your computer's virtual memory.
