A 13-year-old bug found in Ghostbusters: The Video Game has finally been fixed!

In 2009, Atari released the critically acclaimed film Ghostbusters: The Video Gameinstantly becoming a fan favorite and serving as the final project that Bill Murray, Dan Aykroyd, Ernie Hudson and the late Harold Ramis would collectively work on.

The game would eventually reach a new generation of fans, seeing a 2019 re-release under the title, Ghostbusters: The Remastered Video Game, and would benefit from several performance improvements, taking advantage of new video game hardware. Despite this, a strange bug found in the original release would reappear, somehow managing to be overlooked.

In game, when using unlock Ghostbusters II uniform, the logo patch on the right arm would not appear correctly, with the sequels logo being covered by the original non-ghosting design.

While this is clearly not a game-breaking issue, it was well documented within the community, and it was surprising that Mad Dog Games, the company behind the remaster, didn’t fix the minor bug.



Although not officially patched, a user-created patch has just been released by Nexus Mods user sakis720, fixing the logo issue for the playable character Rookie. Not only that, but it also suits Peter, Ray, Winston, and Egon with the charcoal gray uniforms and gold proton pack with the game’s campaign.

If you want to download the mod, it’s available here and will work on the PC version of Ghostbusters: The Video Game Remastered.
