IMPORTANT: People from other regions without this patch still can't see your session because they're game is still region locked!

Enemy behavior now works again like intended as in the original PS3/XBox360/GfWl release.

This fixes the problems regarding the Majini with the crane key in chapter 6-1,
Chainsaw Majini in Desperate Escape and Majinis in The Mercenaries not jumping down or out of containers.
Also prevents Majini from running around in circlels like idiots!

- NO MORE MISPLACED LIGHT EFFECTS
Fixes the misplaced light effects like lens flares and other light sources.

Fixes a bug for some of the DLC characters that keep changing size when doing all kinds of animations.
It's most noticeable by switching weapons or using ladders.

- NO BLACK OUTLINES CAUSED BY ANTI ALAISING
Removes the thick black outlines around characters and enemies that is caused by anti aliasing.

- TITLE SCREEN FIX
Restored the animations in the background of the tile screen.

IMPORTANT: This feature is only available if your partner is in your Steam friendlist

- DLC SCORE STAR FIX
By default the score stars have a broken hitbox so that you can shoot right through them in certan points.
Credit goes to Wilsonso and his LMT Tool that allows me to port .hit files the right way from the PS3 version.

- BARRY EFFECT FIX
The error here is only noticeable from certain angles. Everytime Barry takes a hit, there is this strange dust effect like a knife swing.
This happens because of the wrong .eff files in the character eff.arc.
Fixed by replacing them with the right .eff files.

- PX4 MALE FIX
The Px4 is only supposed to be used by Jill in The Mercenaries mode causses
all male characters to hold the gun wrong and the gun itself uses wrong shooting animations.
Fixed by editing the .lmt files with the right animation.
(Unfortunately this method won't work for the Samurai Edge with female characters.)
