I believe you're looking for step 2 on the widescreen fix page http://enhanced.townofsilenthill.com/SH2/

Edit: Just saw it's called Enhanced Edition now. I like the rebrand ;D

I've used Reshade on this extensively to get it to look right on my rubbish monitor so the brightness and contrast may be off but is this the menu you're after? https://imgur.com/a/i1KT0J9

This is the screen included in the link in my previous comment. It looks to me like it is the same screen just less saturated which is probably down to the display.

Hi @RenoFriends are you specifically asking for the PAL PS2 main menu (with the words "Director's Cut" underneath)? If so, I don't believe we have that image extracted... yet.

Do note that the image RPT linked is the original start screen... for the NTSC PS2 version. This is also the same image used on the NTSC PS2 Greatest Hits version which also includes the Maria scenario:

Don't know how I missed the Director's Cut bit. Sorry about that. I guess because the NTSC menu was such an improvement over the boring red and black PAL one, with the blocky text outlines, it became the only menu in my eyes 😁

@Polymega Yeah you are right... I think I will get sticked with that menu screen but yours looks better than mine... The light around the selection looks worse on my screen...

If you can wait a while Aero and Elisha may be able to improve how the overall 2D images (such as the main menu) look/work in SH2 PC.

In a nutshell: The ability to use higher resolution, widescreen images may soon be possible. I'd suggest waiting until that time before requesting any other 2D images.

Download the enhancement pack RPT linked earlier, it fixes that:

And as mentioned prior, in the future we may be able to make the whole thing look significantly better in time.

@Polymega I thought I already downloaded that and it wasn't! Now it is looking better thanks!
By the way, when I hit pause ingame the options has "SP" after the name?
Like:

Continue SP
Options SP
Exit SP

@Polymega By the way, Does the "focus" thing being adressed? I mean like in the first scene on the bathroom, that in PS2 you can see how the camera focus James while the toilets looks blurry (dont know if I'm explaining myself well)

Are you also using the "No CD" .exe included in that download package? If not, I'd guess it's something within your .exe that would cause that. Do you have the language set to something other than English? (I'm not sure if that's the issue... just taking a guess.)

It's not being looked into at the moment. The effect is working... it's just not as intense as the PS2 version. Although, the motion blur effect seen in certain cutscenes doesn't work some of the times in the PC build. But I believe that may be correlated to enabling PS2CameraSpeed in the ini file?

I believe it is your .exe causing that issue. Here's my copy using a Director's Cut .exe with the language set to Spanish:

Try another copy of the Director's Cut .exe.

Hmm... I wonder if you were using the Director's Cut .exe previously, set the game language to Spanish, it updated your language choice in the game's language.ini file, then, when you used the NA .exe it retained that language selection which caused this bug?

I question this only because the NA .exe has the language selection locked to English only. And I personally don't like/use the PAL .exe because the main menu font is very ugly/not true to the source:

untitled

Could you give me that exe please?

Sure: sh2pc.zip

Make sure you backup your original .exe first.

I can confirm this was the cause. Setting SET DX_CONFIG_LANGUAGE to 1 (English) in the language.ini file fixes this for the North American executables.
