BloodRayne 1 & 2
Enhancement Project
By Tore Andersen

Classic vampire action games from 2002/2004, developed by Terminal Reality and published by Majesco Entertainment. Both games were mostly famous for their female main-character, Rayne. A half-human/vampire wearing a tight latex outfit while hunting down vampires and Nazis. The games were solid back in 2002/2004, but they are not exactly impressive today. This guide will get both games working in HD resolution on Win7/8/10, and upgrade BloodRayne 2 with some new HD textures.

BloodRayne

1: Windows 7/8/10 Fix: (DOWNLOAD)
Download and unpack into the BloodRayne game-folder. Overwrite.

2: Change resolution:
Open the "system" folder inside the BloodRayne game-folder, and open "rayne.ini" with Notepad.
Find:
gamePIXY=
gamePIXX=
Set the values to match your screen resolution.
Example for 4K, use:
gamePIXY=2160
gamePIXX=3840

3: Force Anti-Aliasing (AA):
For whatever reason, AA can't be selected in the in-game options, and it doesn't work when forced via the Nvidia control panel either. However, this can be fixed by setting a compatibility flag in Nvidia Profile Inspector.

If you don't already have Nvidia Profile Inspector, download from here: (LINK) *Unpack to anywhere you want the program. No installation needed.

1: Run Nvidia Profile Inspector.
2: Find the Nocturne profile, and set Antialiasing mode to "Override", as shown in the below image, and choose your desired AA type.
3: Set Antialiasing compatibility to this code: "0x000000C0". You can't choose it from the menu, so you have to type it manually. *It's an older compatibility mode that works with older games.
4: Set Antialiasing fix to "On".
5: Set Antialiasing - Behavior Flags to "None", and Apply changes.



That's it. BloodRayne is ready for launch.

Game Info

The first BloodRayne game takes place in Mortton, Louisiana 1933, in a parallel universe where everyone believes in vampires. Rayne's first mission is about investigating an outbreak of an unidentified disease in the area. Then the story skips several years ahead, and Rayne is sent to infiltrate a Nazi base in Argentina. The Gestapo is trying to obtaining a mystic artifact known as "the skull of Beliar", which must be stopped at all cost. After that, Rayne travels to Germany where she finds an anonymous letter with information about an officer that has a list of other officers. After obtaining the list, the officers must be hunted down one by one.
Rayne is a Dhampir, half-human/vampire, who is vampires and Nazis. She is working for a secret "Brimstone" Society, that gives her missions. Mynce is Rayne's friend and mentor who helps her with the first assignment.

BloodRayne 2 is about hunting down more vampires and more Nazis. Both games are typical 3rd person hack'n'slash action adventures, within a linear world-space. Technically BloodRayne 2 is much better than the first game. It's also more compatible with modern computer systems. BloodRayne 2 have better 3D models and a more detailed world, but the fighting mechanics are the same. The games are mostly famous for Rayne, the main character and her style. Without Rayne, I highly doubt anyone would even remember the games existed today. Uwe Boll has produced no less that 3 horrible BloodRayne movies with absolutely no other selling point that Rayne and her leather outfit. Uwe Boll is well known for his extraordinarily terrible low-budget movies based on computer games. His work is unbelievable, even for low-budget movies. He's the guy behind "Alone in the Dark", officially one of the worst movies ever made, next to "Plan 9 from Outer Space".
