CLEO Redux comes with a hassle-free installer that identifies the selected game and downloads all the dependencies. Just run
cleo_redux_setup.exe and follow its steps.
Both CLEO Redux and its installer recognize the target game purely by the executable name in the selected/working directory.
- GTA III -
- GTA VC -
- GTA SA -
- GTA IV -
- re3 -
- reVC -
- GTA III: DE -
- GTA VC: DE -
- GTA SA: DE -
- Bully: SE -
Names matching is case-insensitive. If the exe file does not contain a version information CLEO Redux always assumes the version is correct (see supported versions).
In most cases this directory can be found in the game folder. If, however, CLEO lacks write permissions there and fails to create new files, it uses an alternate path at
cleo_redux.log and the
CLEO directory can be found there.
CLEO Redux is distributed as a dynamic-load library with an
.asi extension. Historically ASI files have been used in GTA III and Vice City as addons to the Miles Sound System library (Mss32) which loads them into the game process. More recent titles didn't use MSS, so the modding community developed custom loaders commonly named "ASI Loader" to continue using ASI for any custom code to be injected into the game.
Ultimate ASI Loader by ThirteenAG can be used to load CLEO Redux in any game. It gets downloaded during CLEO Redux setup. You may opt out of installing Ultimate ASI Loader if you have other means of injecting ASI files into the game (i.e. an alternative loader) or the game already supports ASI, e.g. by using MSS lib.
Note that the Ultimate ASI Loader dll file can be renamed, e.g. to
d3d9.dll depending on the game. By default CLEO Redux installs it as
vorbisFile.dll in 32-bit games and
version.dll in 64-bit games. There are some exceptions:
- it is
d3d9.dllin re3 and reVC (x64)
- it is
dinput8.dllin GTA IV
If the default name does not work with the given game, try renaming the dll file into another compatible name. Visit Ultimate ASI loader repo for more information.
CLEO Redux supports "Windows D3D9" version of
reVC (both 32-bit and 64-bit).
During installation you must select the correct version of
reVC: either 32-bit or 64-bit.
When running on
reVC make sure the game directory contains the file
re3.pdb (for re3) or
reVC.pdb (for reVC). Due to the dynamic nature of memory addresses in those implementations CLEO Redux relies on debug information stored in the PDB file to correctly locate itself.
