'Powertools (rev 5) may crash the game when its main window loses focus while in full-screen mode. This bug is being hunted down and will be slaughtered soon. Maybe.
Saints Row Powertools ('Powertools for short) is a growing collection of extra features all bundled into a neat little .dll, brought to you by IdolNinja and Rafael. Simply throw some files into your game directory, read the readme, connect some wires, and you'll be on your way to shocking hookers with resuscitation paddles wearing a hotdog suit at the game's intended speed in no time.
Powertools currently runs on Windows Vista, Windows 7 and Windows 8.
Windows 8 does not appear to cause the same problems with Saints Row 2 so you may not need Powertools on Windows 8! If you're still suffering from the slowdown on Windows 8, e-mail me at: email@example.com.
'Powertools currently adds the following features:
revision 5 (released 04/23/2010 - requires Microsoft Visual C++ 2008 SP1 Redistributable Package (x86) and the latest DirectX End-User Runtime)
Source code (requires Visual Studio 2010, Microsoft Detours Express 2.1 and the DirectX SDK).
