Default Zherak_Khan - Eye of the Beholder 3 - Patched version

Hi,
I'm doubleposting this from the game's own discussion thread, figuring this might be a more likely place for the right people to see it.

REGARDING EYE OF THE BEHOLDER 3
I have the fanpatched version of this game; i.e. running with the AESOP/32 instead of the AESOP/16 engine. At least for me, it made the difference between it running unbearably choppy and almost perfectly smooth. To my knowledge, it is also harmless and stable, but I can't really vouch for that.
SUMMARY: PATCHED VERSION IS BETTER

However, getting a hold of this version involved nearly arcane magics, including, yet not limited to digging up a weird, cached version of an old thread, http://vogons.zetafleet.com/viewtopi...ighlight=aesop , as well as carefully handpicking and downloading a bunch of files, and running an obscure .bat to rebuild the eye.res into a 32-bit version.
SUMMARY: PATCHING IS RATHER INVOLVED

What the patch essentially does is substitue the runtime-engine with an improved version, which never shipped with the actual game. I don't see any reason one can't just provide a download for the patched version, which should run smoothly after only unzipping. Unfortunately, seeing as the main data file for the whole game is different in the patched version, I can't see any way to provide just a small patch.
SUMMARY: I REQUEST THE PATCHED VERSION TO BE ADDED TO THE DOWNLOADS. IT RUNS PERFECTLY WITH 15000 CYCLES IN DOSBOX.

To see the difference between patched and unpatched versions, I recommend these two links:
