Resident Evil HD REMASTER Randomizer

I'm currently working on creating a randomizer mod for the game Resident Evil HD REMASTER on PC. Now playable as both Jill and Chris on Normal and Hard difficulty!

I could really use your support to continue working on this mod. I recently released a game on Steam, Operator Overload, and I would really appreciate if you could check it out!

I now also have a patreon! Become a Patron!

Alternatively you can buy me a coffee through ko-fi:

You can try version 0.85 alpha *HERE*

There is a patch you need to install in order to prevent crashes with the enemy randomizer, download it *HERE* and place the contents of the nativePC folder inside the nativePC folder of your REmake installation.

Known issues:

Dog whistle doesn't work after beating Plant 42.

Elevators are sometimes in the wrong position after beating Lisa

Patch notes

Version 0.85: It is now guaranteed that you can save Rebecca as Chris in all seeds, as long as you do it before you enter the labs.

Removed spiders from Aqua Ring Walkway as they didn't work

Removed Tyrants from Large Gallery as there are too many of them

Version 0.84: Removed Tyrants from Power Maze B as they were making the game impossible to finish

Derandomized the Small Library enemies as it kept soft-locking when trying to save Rebecca

Removed sharks from the Large Gallery as they were on the ceiling and their collision was blocking progress

Removed Tyrant and Yawn from the Outside Boiler room as this makes the seed too easy

Removed chimera from Dining Room 2F as it doesn't work

Removed shark from Enrico Room due to a hitbox preventing you from leaving the room

Version 0.8: Added enemy randomizer! Very early test version so please forgive me if anything breaks! Make sure you have the Enemy Swap Patch installed or you will get crashes at the first zombie, there are detailed instructions in the README!

Version 0.75: Fixed the bug I introduced by mistake in version 0.71 where key items were assigned to a Handgun Magazine in East Wing Storeroom when that item doesn't appear for Jill on Normal

Version 0.74: Added modifier for the fuel capsule to be already armed when found

Version 0.73: Fixed issue where single green herb in Winding Underground Passage on hard difficulty was not being randomized, causing possible soft locks

Version 0.72: Fixed issue where one set of shotgun shells weren't being removed when the ammo modifier was turned on

Fixed issue for Jill where one stun gun was still appearing when defense items were turned off

Added randomizer version number to the cheat sheet

Added modifier for all non-key items to be replaced with Self Defense Gun (it has bugs, but finding out how to get around them can be part of the fun!)

Version 0.71: Fixed issue where Jill would get a duplicate item from the handgun magazine in the east wing storeroom after getting the armor key on Hard difficulty

Version 0.7: Added modifiers in the seed generator to optionally remove healing items, ammo, ink ribbons and defense items and replace them with Junk(wooden mounts, slide filters and X-Rays)

Fixed bug where wind crest was incorrectly being flagged as required to get access to the magnum revolver item slot

Version 0.62: Fixed issue with magnum rounds in aqua ring storage not being correctly randomized in hard mode

Version 0.61: Fixed issue with shotgun shells and first aid box being the wrong way around causing soft lock in hard mode in Rec Room

Version 0.6: Fixed grenade rounds for Jill showing up incorrectly as shotgun shells in the cheat sheet

Added support for Hard/Real Survival difficulty! They both work when you pick the Hard difficulty in the randomizer.

Changed text in cheat sheet to better show that you need to pick up the item after beating plant 42

Version 0.5: Added the following back into the randomizer:
Red & Yellow Gemstones in Trophy Room
Fish Hook in Fish Tank Room
Hexagonal Crank in Enrico Room
Fuel Supply Capsule in Power Maze A
Grenade Launcher in Outside Patio

Fixed bug where the lighter could be placed in impossible locations for Jill

Changed the seed generator so that the dog whistle will not drop in areas where you need to have beaten plant 42

Version 0.4: Added Jill! It's very possible that unforseen bugs could occur as this is brand new, so let me know if anything goes wrong!

Took Insecticide Spray out of the pool due to bug

Renamed RandomizerItemListGenerator.exe to RandomizerSeedGenerator.exe

Version 0.38: CheatSheet.txt is now generated along with the seed and should show where all the randomized items are located.

Version 0.37: Shotgun shells in the graveyard and the Book of Curses were the wrong way around, causing another potential run ruiner due to the arrowhead being needed. FIXED!

Version 0.36: Fixed one item placement giving incorrect item in Boulder Passage 2, possibly ruining runs. Sorry! D:

Version 0.35: took Fuel Supply Capsule out of the pool due to it being bugged.

Version 0.3: Fixed the trainer asking people to download Cheat Engine, it should now come built in.

If you have any problems or encounter any bugs or think your seed isn't finishable, send your ItemList.txt to me in a pastebin along with a description of your problem on Twitter or Email and I'll do my best to get back to you!


1) Place RandomizerSeedGenerator.exe and RandomizerTrainer.exe in your Resident Evil / Biohazard HD REMASTER folder, in the same place as bhd.exe

2) Launch RandomizerSeedGenerator.exe until it generates the file ItemList.txt for your chosen character, this is your randomized item list.

3) Launch up the game and go to the main menu.

4) Open RandomizerTrainer.exe and wait for a window asking for you to choose your character.

5) After you have chosen the character you generated the seed for it should detect both bhd.exe and ItemList.txt, if it has not you need to relaunch!

6) Make sure you pick the correct character ingame on the correct difficulty.

Most people playing for the first time will want Normal difficulty (it's the top choice when choosing difficulties "Like climbing a mountain. Fulfilling, but takes a lot of work.") If you picked an easier difficulty I believe it will still work, but the extra items generated by the lower difficulty will not be randomized.

Hard difficulty is only accessible when you've already beaten the game once as Jill or Chris. If you wish to play Real Survival you must also pick Hard in the trainer as they both have the same item sets.

7) Play the game! Leave the executable open for the trainer until you are done playing as it edits the items while the game is being run, closing it will unrandomize your items!
