Everything is OK

Reviewed By: 1HomoErectus1 on 04 Oct 2021

The game goes well and smoothly with this hack. Everything is OK. (However, color changes is a matter of personal preferences). But what hacks actually are in this “combination of some other great hacks”? One can only guess. It will be good to have a list of this “some other great hacks”. At now I can see only good changes of the animation of the main hero (we already have this hack on this site) and minor color changes of the interface.

Edited 5.10.21: Anyway, “Definitive Edition” is said too loudly. It is definitely not the definitive version at least without patch that fix the English localization issues (”Harmony of Dissonance - Localization Fix”). The good thing is that, as far as I can see, this two hacks agree to work together.

Version 1.0 Recommended - Yes
