Just an update on everything - I've been really busy recently so I haven't had much time to work on anything but I’m still making progress. I'm almost ready to release the Peru upgrades for my Legend Upgraded mod. I've also found more fixes to add to the OldGen+ mod which I'll share as well.

In the meantime, I want to share an interesting little discovery I've made. A few weeks ago I found a thread on the forums from over a decade ago where people had discovered that Legend and Anniversary had a value in their game registries called "EAXSupport". Here's a screenshot of it:



This suggested that these games should be able to use EAX sound technology but when the value was activated, nothing happened in game. Thanks to some help from the user Jathom95 and their EAX restoration mod pack for Angel of Darkness, I was able to actually reactivate EAX in Legend / Anniversary using the same techniques that restore it in AoD!

Sadly though, there's not much to celebrate about because it doesn't activate any surround sound or other special EAX technology in the games. It does make the panning between the left and right audio channels smoother but that's the only positive change. In the end I don't think it's worth your time restoring EAX in Legend / Anniversary but I still wanted to share this with you all because it's an nice little discovery. Someone might even be able to do something further with this information in the future.
