I tried Taiga's change by editing the gdof gvignette etc Values in the dr2 OTR's exe by using the hex editor HxD ( i even ran as admin ) ...but when I went to reopen the exe, it crashed, but i think should work, since it really is the Skidrow that I got... does anyone know a way around or do I need to disable the GFWL in order to allow the hex to work through? Also, before installing the skidrow, I actually registered the cd version onto my pc. Does that relate to this problem?
You must use the skidrow executable. Even if you install the skid version you still have to drag over the cracked file over to the main game directory. The game allows you access with the original executable even without the crack just not access to multiplayer without a valid key.

I think you misunderstood what I was trying to tell you. The skidrow version pretty much installs a legit version of the game. It then provides you with some crack files in the .iso itself that you don't need for this game to run. When you install those crack files into your game folder you don't get the GFWL settings. So you don't get the sign in screen for windows live.
The original file seems to have a check happen that if anything changes it crashes the game. You can try this out by simply changing the name of the executable from deadrising2otr.exe to DR2OTR.exe and you will see it crashes the game. Normally the name of the executable does not matter but somewhere, either in the executable itself or in gdf.dll, something checks for any changes happening. The skidrow version does not use gdf.dll but it does contain its own dll. The dll could be used to just bypass settings to get the game to run but it could also contain settings to compromise your system so it is really up to you whether to use a cracked file for a few settings.

okay, I tried what you said... the skid runs now... but now I see .... no video component. even in the active game only the object icons and weapon names can be seen, ... frank is running in a black screen.
edit: I reverted the vignette and luminance, so i'm guess they affect the black... I'm still geting lag with depth of view disabled...
