How to Install Precursors in English with full sound.
 
Here is a step by step updated walkthrough on how to install. (most of the old links are broken and missing, so i created new ones.)

1- procure copy of game via gamersgate or yuplay.ru or wherever. install game.

2- Apply 1.1 update, found here http://www.patches-scrolls.de/precursors.php#tp16

3- download TRIVIUM precursors found here https://www.dropbox.com/s/crwtl2y3dv…ecursors.rar?m go into TRIVIUM folder and open 1.01 and move everything over and override when asked.

4- Apply newest patch found here http://www.patches-scrolls.de/precursors.php#tp16

5- add Russian sound files, found here https://www.dropbox.com/s/3iksq9y9c8…%20files.rar?m place into packages folder override when asked. also found here http://www.moddb.com/games/the-precu…-voices-part-1 http://www.moddb.com/games/the-precu…-voices-part-2

6- Open Game and when asked for serial, open TRIVIUM keygen and follow directions
(this removes the evil Starforce protection)

7- (optional) apply film grain fix found here http://www.moddb.com/games/the-precu…film-grain-fix

and that should give you the game in full audio and in english, enjoy.

Is the grain fix worth it to be included in the patch?

niadly January 31st, 2013 13:21

i think so, it makes the game much prettier, and as far as I know, there are no downsides.
maybe just make it optional like the HUD and ATI fixes. that way people can have the choice.

Yes Wesp its VERY worth it, makes the game clean and colors more well… colorful lol. It would be awesome is it were included in the, hoping, coming soon patch :)

I don't know if I should include this in the patch, I don't get film grain effects at all on my NVIDIA card. So is this only connected to ATI cards and should be added to the ATI fix?

Ive only run Nvidia cards and i had to use the fix every time i install.
The vanilla version needs to be modified. I remember having to use the GRPunpacker and grabbing the postprocess folder. insdie thefolde, each world has its own settings (GREEN PLANET, YELLOW PLANET…)
If I remember right, theres a line at the bottom starting with NOISE, i changed the defualt value to 0.0, saved, and then the film grain was gone.

@niadly: I registered just to say thank you for the up-to-date, concise how-to with working links. I got Precursors as the free full game supplement of a magazine - with zero patches applied, of course - and I was one step away from going completely bonkers trying to follow any/all the other, much older how-tos full of links to each other and to broken downloads. I now finally have a strobing-free Sun over my head, a weapon that does not include an invisible silencer, and enemies I can actually hear approaching. It's like a whole different game. Thanks! :)
