Hey all I want to start trying to run Resident evil 3 and I would just like to ask what is there differences between Rebirth and Vanilla as there is 2 seperate leaderboards I noticed, does one the REbirth have faster text or something completely different?
Thank you anyone who answers
REbirth it's just a patch that makes the game run better and adds some QOL options, these are the features from REbirth:
° Includes a full English translation (movies will still retain Japanese game title and subtitles). ° Improves the general compatibility on modern operating systems with no extra fiddling, lowers the system requirements (can literally run on a toaster), and improves/stabilizes performance for a smoother game experience. ° Replaces DirectDraw 5.00 with DirectX 9, for modern GPU support, and forces the game to run in 32 bits instead of 16 bits. ° Replaces DirectSound with XAudio 2.9, which takes care of random crashes at door transitions and fixes looping issues with all music and some samples. ° Replaces DirectInput 5.00 with XInput, DirectInput 8.00, and Raw Input. This improves compatibility with most game controllers and reduces laggy/missed inputs. ° Replaces DirectShow video playback with a custom video player that doesn’t depend on deprecated Microsoft technologies. No codecs required, FFmpeg takes care of SourceNext dvds/rawvideo and Mediakite mpeg, and it also adds native MP4 + AAC support for video packs. ° Optionally fixes rendering issues like wobbly polygons and warped textures. Restores displaying for all rasterization effects such as screen shakes, TV static, and special fades. ° Adds an option to display backgrounds at the same resolution as masking sprites to have a more faithful PlayStation-like experience. ° Adds a series of QOL optional toggles like door removal, favorable RNG for puzzles and enemy placements, and univocal outfit names. ° Reintegrates The Mercenaries extra mode with an option in the title screen, removing the need for a dedicated executable. ° Reintegrates the PlayStation option screen and gives it functional PC settings.
Apart from those the rebirth patch is a bit faster in some areas of the game and slower in some others, for example some door skips are different but in general rebirth is a couple of seconds faster. Still, they are essentially the same game without any mayor difference, it'd come down to personal preference. It's worth noting that there is a known crash with the REbirth patch after pushing the bell with Carlos to exit the clock tower, it's not guaranteed to happen, but it does happen, although some people seem to have had more crashes than other, so we are not really sure what the cause is.
