I recently reinstalled one of my favorite gamez Giants Citizen Kabuto and it is the version that was made to run with geforce 2 cards. I remember a while back I had an unofficial patch for the game that made the game have extra effects and higher polygon counts like it did when Giants was bundled with elsa geforce 3 cards way back in the day. I remember it was a HUUGE improvement graphically for the game and I am wondering if anyone has a copy of this patch on their hard drives and if so I'd like a copy.
It is no where on the internet and the only way I got it last time was on a forum like this one.
thanks

Did that patch actually unlock the full Elsa Geforce 3 version of the game? I thought it was just a few of the effects and Delfi's new character model and not all the models or features? In any case though, I really should go back and play this game, it was fun back in the day and had some great humor. Planet Moon should make a Giants 2...

YES! Giants was so freaking fun... the only one that came close (made by Planet Moon, too, I think) was Armed and Dangerous... which was quite hilarious and fun... but not quite the same... really do wish they would do a Giants 2... multiplayer in that game was so freaking fun.

I loved Giants. Great game... just to add my voice to the chorus. I don't really have much else to say. Loved the voice acting though.

I never heard of this GF3 patch so I downloaded it .... It's a 23KB file. Can a 23KB file really make that much of difference visually?

Erm, looks like your download is borked. The GF3 patch is a little over a meg. And it doesn't make a giganto-humungous graphics leap, but the new Mech models and the few updated textures look nice.

I tried to download the patch again from the link provided and still got a 23Kb file. The 1.4 patch downloads fine at a little over 2MB. Can someone provide a different link to the GF3 patch?

It's coming up as 23k for me as well. And IIRC, the GF3 quality "update" just unlocked the models and effects that were included in the patch, it didn't actually upgrade anything by itself.

I happen to know one of the artists at Planet Moon. I will pass on this thread to him. I don't think they plan a Giant 2, but we can always hope.

The GeForce 3 patch I have is 1.75Mb (compressed, 3.67Mb uncompressed).

I too am a great fan of Giants, would LOVE to see a Giants 2. I just think it would be a huge success not only to original Giantsfans but for all gamers alike. A solid humorous actiongame is much-needed today I think :)

Giants was just such an under appreciated title, like so many others.

The GeForce 3 patch I provided works with the 1.4 patch to unlock the textures and models. If someone has another that does more, please share it.

This link has basic screenshots, but they don't do the game justice.

This is by for still the funnest game out there, IMHO. It has RTS, FPS and TPS, along with racing and the very funny humor. I consider it one of the most under-rated games out.

Arrrgg! You guys are making me want to play these amazing old games. Damn, now where is that copy? I'd like to see this one with some serious filtering going on. I never could remotely afford it with the GF3.

Oh, I remember Giants: Citizen Kabuto...

That one had the naked female blue skinned water creature in it.

Except they had to give her a bikini top or something because some people got upset about it.

She wasn't even human!

Yeah, they changed the blood from red to green and gave Delfi a bikini at the last minute in order to get a Teen rating. In all the preview videos and stuff, she was topless. Kinda silly, the bikini looked really out of place. Though that picture is...quite detailed. Looks like she was "anatomically correct" in more ways than just her upper half!

I liked playing as sea reapers best, I loved the dash attack and spells. It was great casting the tornado spell in the middle of a group of those sheep-like creatures and watching them all get pulled into it and torn apart, haha.

Oh, and since we are talking about enhancements to the game...

Supposedly some big things are in store for this old title.

I found this post dated July 11, 2005 on another forum concerning a "Graphical Revision Mod" for Giants: Citizen Kabuto. http://s88894241.onlinehome.us/forum/viewtopic.php?t=1083&postdays=0&postorder=asc&start=0

Now, I am unsure if these enhancements are for the single-player game as well as multi-player game, but if it also enhances the single-player game, great.

Here's the red blood patch if anybody wants it.

And the menu patch, which changes the main menus music and changes the Multiplayer menu, it's a cool patch imo.
