Silent Hill 2: Enhanced Edition project releases its 9th update, features proper 60fps and language packs



"Silent Hill 2: Enhanced Edition", a QoL fanmade community project for Silent Hill 2 on PC, has just released its 9th updated on Friday 23rd, 2023.

Silent Hill 2: Enhanced Edition is an ongoing project that's been going strong for around 4 years, and it has become the definitive way to experience the great horror classic. The project focuses on making the beloved Silent Hill 2 for PC compatible with modern gaming conventions, meaning hardware support, widescreen and higher resolutions, better and higher framerate, a complete HD overhaul to the game's asssets (including textures, audio and videos), and adds a ton of bugfixes that the PC version carried over for years.

Without a doubt, the people in charge of the project have been committed to bringing the best possible experience to play the game, and with this latest release, users can enjoy Silent Hill 2 is smooth 60fps. The previous versions of SH2EE did have 60fps, but it still had some bugs which occurred mainly to some of the in-game assets being completely tied to the framerate, making certain animations move faster than intended with the old 60fps version. With this, all bugged animations and other assets have been properly resolved to behave in their intended speed even at 60fps. Not only that, but this new update also adds other great improvements, like using Xidi for improved controller support, a full-on language pack support that the community can expand upon, full mouse support, and much, much more.

Some of the changes in this new update are:

You know when Konami or some other studios, Capcom etc. Will ever put 1% as this much effort in a new game, let alone old? Never, and they have unlimited resources, money through the roof and they go looking for cheapest labour to do their development, programing, testing and ends up broken, fugly, unplayable. Sadness

beautiful work, with an intense love of the game that shines. they could have stopped at v1.0 and it'd still be celebrated as a far superior updated version than any other attempt. every update is pure magic.

I quite like Silent Hill 2.

S/o to the hobbyists putting in the extra effort on their spare time to revitalize a 20 year old title. Sucks that the original development studio wouldn't be this dedicated.

Hoping SH 2 (Restless Dreams/Directors's Cut) gets a decomp project soon. I know it's getting a remake but I'd love to see PS2 era horror games get decomped and get homebrew ports.
