To keep things neat, I'm putting all of my mods into one ASI.

You need Forklift (for Shenmue III).

You may also be required to update your Visual C++ redistributable packages to get running:

https://aka.ms/vs/16/release/VC_redist.x64.exe

To install, extract this archive into `Shenmue3\Binaries\Win64`.

To uninstall, remove MiscMods.asi and the INI file from your `Shenmue3\Binaries\Win64` folder.


Features:
  • Classic Camera Mod
    custom mode is also available, which allows you to modify the camera height, distance and FOV (more variables will be added in the future).
  • NPC Manager fixes
  • No Energy drain while running
  • No Walk Only triggers

That's really cool! Thanks a lot @LemonHaze .
I have an idea to improve more Shenmue III. It's about capsule toys animation. The first time you insert a coin in a gacha machine Ryo does an animation opening the capsule and taking his time but if you try again, the second time Ryo gets the capsule instantly without animation. It feels very rushed and ruins the waiting moment of excitement to discover the surprise. This is Shenmue after all, no need to rush. Even the first animation could be a bit slower for my tastes (actually, they were slower in previous shenmues).
If you could find a way to trigger the first long animation always it would be awesome.

Great idea! I'll look into this soon.

To enter values either click and drag the value, left to right, or via keyboard input, hold CTRL and left-click the field you want to edit, then input the value you want to set.

WIP version 1.10.5 - Added ability to swap characters in-game. Textures often do not appear correct, but this can be fixed by loading into the game again (through the load/save data menu).
