Yooka-Laylee and the Impossible Lair in 3D

Game is out and getting amazing reviews, seems like a spiritual successor to donkey kong country games, and it uses Unity so a solid candidate for the universal Unity fix, anyone tried it?

I just downloaded and tested the game.
With the Unity Universal fix the MEDIUM and HIGH Quality settings are broken (shadows are off etc) but with the LOW Quality profile it looks totally playbale for me :-)

Did a little more experimenting. The game uses Unity 2017. If you go into the fix's D3DX.INI file and uncomment the line:

;include = ShaderFixes\Unity20171_DHR.ini

You will then be able to set the game to its highest graphic settings. The results aren't perfect ( a few issues with stickers is what I've noticed so far), but I'd say it's about 90%.

The game is free on Epic for a day. What a surprising giveaway. I'll try to fix the remaining issues if I can, after I download it.

Amazing giveaway since it's a great game, it's barely a few months old and and I knew it worked well in 3d, now hearing that you're fixing it is the icing of the cake, thanks a lot masterotaku.

There's one problem with the Epic version. The Epic launcher doesn't have launch comands, so I made a shortcut with "-window-mode exclusive", but if I use it, it tries to launch the game once, it closes itself, and then Epic launches the game for real (without the exclusive fullscreen command).

Then I used "full_screen=1" in "d3dx.ini", which works to trigger 3D, but now the game crashes almost every time I try to alt+tab. That makes fixing the game almost impossible for me. I would need to use a laptop to edit shaders on the network without alt+tabbing, but I don't have one available right now.

If this game were DRM-free on Epic I wouldn't have this problem. I think I'd just need the "YLILWin64.exe" file from the GOG version to avoid this.

Yes the epic game launcher supports launch commands go to setting in the main menu and at the bottom you find your installed games click on the game and it will give you a option additional Command Line Arguments.

Thank you! That's what I needed. I didn't know that configuration was there. Now I can proceed with the fix :).

I have resumed my work on this. I managed to fix decals and other lighting/shadows problems that the universal fix couldn't fix (the formula I need is different), although I'm facing a clipping problem because of the way I fixed them.
Release date for the fix: still unknown.

The fix is almost ready. All I need to do is finish the impossible lair level. I'll try to release the fix tomorrow, if I can beat the level.

Not so impossible :p. I finished it sooner than expected. Here's the fix: https://helixmod.blogspot.com/2020/05/y ... -lair.html
