These patches are not compatible with the tomb4.exe that comes with TR4.

I do however have a question as I've never used FLEP before and for a good reason. It patches executable therefore stupid windows recognizes the exe as virus and deletes the exe without asking users what they want to do with it. So I think that many players outside of the community just simply throw the whole thing into the bin and don't touch it anymore and just move on. Just very few of them do care to search the problem in the forums and/or care to solve the problem. I myself had this issue some time ago and took me some time figure out how to exclude the folders from security checking. I almost gave up. I would love to use this FLEP as it contains many more amazing features but am so sceptical due to the fact I described above. So I think this is the reality vs illusion. 80% of the potential players won't play the game and 20% of the players which we see in the community and streaming do care to do extra work to play the game. So we can't see what all the rest of the players do with the game with this exe behaviour. I know we can still add note to the readme files and add note to the descreption of the level page, though the reality is many don't care to read a thing and even if they do then they don't care to do extra work. Like: "what? the exe got deleted? LOL ok bye then". What do you guys think about all this?
Has someone a solution for that?
It is annoying that windows delete the exe.
I can deactivate the real time protection for that, but I have to do this each time after start my PC. So is there a general solution and if so, how can I do this?

The best solution is to install Linux alongside Windows. Then delete any anti virus software you have on Windows and completely disable Windows to access the net.
Surf the net on Linux as there is no chance to get a virus with Linux and use comfortably your Windows to create whatever you want and use all Windows programs you want without any Windows automatic protecting you from yourself.

That's great news, I was totally planning on releasing my next game with a Patched vs non-patched version because of the virus thing lol

Latest version: https://drive.google.com/file/d/1HE9...ew?usp=sharing.

New patches:
  • Free camera: Lock
  • Sample file size
  • Sample rate
  • Sample buffer array
  • Reverb
Unfortunately FLEP cannot fix the Grenade Gun bug since TRNG already patches the code where it happens. But TRNG patch copies the bug instead of solving it.

About the reverb patch:To overcome false positive detection by antiviruses, FLEP patches now are applied to the executable memory, as TRNG does. The new workflow is:
  1. FLEP patcher will patch a binary blob called patches.bin
  2. As soon as tomb4.exe starts, flep.dll will read patches.bin and patch tomb4.exe
This tomb4.exe (Lara blinking) is different than standard tomb4.exe (Lara with headset) because it must talk to flep.dll.

As a consequence, these three files should be distributed if FLEP patches are used: tomb4.exe, flep.dll and patches.bin.TombIDE 1.3.14 includes the same files as above for new projects that use TRNG + FLEP engine.

Thanks to: Caesum, DJ Full, LaraHCroft91, LoreRaider and Lwmte.
Sorry if I forgot someone!
