The Resident Evil 3 curse has been lifted

The game has been added to the list of Classic REbirth patches. More info after the jump!

So, the patch is finally available to the public, making the missing entry in the series compatible with modern hardware. In a sense, this patch has been handled with so much care it’s the most advanced of the classic trilogy at the moment. All deprecated APIs have been replaced with a more modern counterpart (DDraw becomes Direct3D9, DirectSound becomes XAudio 2.9, DirectShow becomes FFmpeg, etc.), and the general stability of the game has increased massively. The thing with the new APIs is that they also make the game much lighter to run and come with a good amount of optimization under the hood.
