    For anyone suffering issues getting Primal Hunt to run even after following the installation of the All in One Edition, and installing this patch, follow this instruction here:

    Use the files attached to this post put all in your Primal Hunt directory folder, launch the game through the the batch launcher file provided, and in properties under compatibility for both PrimalHunt.exe and Lithtech.exe under "Change high DPI settings:" turn on "Override high DPI scaling behaviour:" "Scaling performed by (Application)"

    If you use modifications or a PC joystick for example you can edit the text entries in the autoexec.cfg file using notepad.

    As for using modifications for that firstly make sure such a folder exists titled "custom" by creating one and placing your modifications in it, then back in the autoexec.cfg using notepad you can change "-rez custom\PROJAM.REZ" to "-rez custom\1.REZ" instead for example, or you can add new entries entirely such as "-rez custom\PlagariusPraepotens.REZ" but remember that the following entry will always take priority over the prior entry.

    For using a PC joystick simply switch the number indicated in the autoexec.cfg using notepad to a "1" or a "0" respectively, vice versa depending upon the functionality listed in the autoexec.cfg you want to turn on or turn off, and in any case do not forget to save changes.

    I have also attached my XPadder configuration if you wish to play it with a Xbox type Gamepad or Controller, the main profile in Primal's already set up for use with this application to be launched alongside the game itself "BlueMarsalis" with "BlueMarsalisMK" being configured for Keyboard and Mouse, hope this helps in any case.
