Welcome to the Insane Difficulty Guides main page. This website is a community of people who enjoy difficult games. We create and categorize mods of existing games to make them more challenging. We also challenge ourselves to play games with limitations to make the experience more rewarding. The members here love being challenged and love overcoming difficulty by mastering games. If you have ever felt disappointed with a game because it was too easy for you, or it did not give you the challenge you were looking for, this site is for you.
Frequently Asked Questions
What is a patch?
A patch is a file that contains changes for computer games and other software. Patches can be used to update, modify, or fix different aspects of a program. On this site, we distribute modifications (mods) for various game titles through patch files, which provide a low size, hassle-free way to distribute mods and other edits so that users can tweak their gaming experiences if they wish. For more information on how patches are applied, visit the Patching Guide.
What are mods, modifications, and hacks?
With regards to gaming, modifications (also known as mods) and hacks are simply changes in code and file resources designed to change how a game plays. You can mod the art, environment, sound effects, music, rule-sets, and text within a game. On this site, we take a specific interest in mods designed to enhance game-play and difficulty of existing games to create additional challenges for games we already love.
