Note that smaller repacks for Layers of fears and Amnesia Rebirth are available on the forum (same download links). In both cases, they were updated using the latest gog versions.

Note that a repack of Resident Evil village could be released (The problem is not the repack itself but the fact that I've no more space on mega.nz). For the moment I’m still trying to figure out how to make the game work since it’s complaining about the graphic card being not compatible with dx12.

I watched this movie in the early 90's and at this time I remember I had been very scared.

I assume you saw this in a movie theater. I'm curious about something. Did they have French subtitles or did they dub in the voices?

Actually, I watched this movie with a cousin, and it was obviously in French. Unlike Russia, in the movies dubbed in French, there is only one language (In foreign movies dubbed in Russian, you can still hear the original language with the Russian dubbing).

Subsequently, I’ve been to the theater several times in the 90,’s.
Note that "going to the theater is an American expression to say "to go to the cinema", in England you say "to go to the movies", and in French  you say "aller au cinéma" or "aller voir un film" whereas "aller au théâtre" means "to see a play" which also means "to go to the theatre" in England.
But each time the movie was in French (Edward scissorhands, The virgin suicide, The 5th element, Fight club, Blair Witch 2, Resident Evil, The men in black, The lord of the ring, Titanic...). At this time, I was living with my father in a small town in the Drôme department (for some reasons my mother didn’t want to raise a child).
In the 90’s, very few movies broadcast in English with French subtitles...because few people were speaking this language. Even in the TV series, the opening credits were adapted.
Maybe you are a fan of the TV series Dallas, with Bobby and JR. In the early 90’s I was watching it with my paternal grandmother, who died in 1996 of breast cancer). Here you can see the French opening credits, which were adapted. They were an ode to the glory of Texas. You are going to be dumbfounded: https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=rlfHcCLn4pk
But Nowadays, you can find many theatres with films in original version with French subtitles  (in French: version originale or VO avec sous titres). However...it mainly depends on where you live.
And you are lucky: for you, I found a study conducted by a movie specialist and translated it:
"Most cinemas do not necessarily offer original version en French version. On the two anamorphosis maps below, the bigger a department, the more its inhabitants are offered sessions in VO (in red) or in French (in green).





In some regions, the original version is reserved for small downtown cinemas or arthouse cinemas. But some multiplex networks also schedule a large number of original sessions, such as UGC. If we go to the city level, it is of course in Paris that most original versions are offered. But the suburbs and a few towns in province are quite good, such as Montreuil, Biarritz and Hérouville-Saint-Clair in the lead, before the capital if we take into account the total share of the sessions in original version. Conversely, there are parts of France where no theatres are offering original versions. You have probably noticed that the following departments are missing on the red map indeed:
Ariege
Creuse
Haute-Saône
Indre
Orne

Maybe some of you know the book "Where's Waldo?" This is the title of the first Waldo book. Released in 1987, the book was the result of more than two-years of detailed work by illustrator Martin Handford.
Waldo is identified by his red-and-white-striped shirt, bobble hat, and glasses, but many illustrations contain red herrings involving deceptive use of red-and-white striped objects. Later entries in the long-running book series added other targets for readers to find in each illustration. The books have also inspired a comic strip and a series of video games.

Here are a few pages taken from the book. The purpose is to find Waldo in each page. aa1234779, Vasudev or shadow.97 might be able to find Waldo in those pictures.

Today, another movie, released in 1987 and titled "A Nightmare on Elm Street 3: Dream Warriors" is available on the forum.

It is the franchise's third and probably best entry...
I watched this movie in the early 90's and at this time I remember I had been very scared.
Of course this movie is repulsive, this is its primary attraction. On the forum, all right-thinking people will steer clear. But wrong-thinkers with a taste for the grotesque will be in heaven.

The story: A psychiatrist familiar with knife-wielding dream demon Freddy Krueger helps teens at a mental hospital battle the killer who is invading their dreams.

In Spanish, with English subtitles.

Note that there will be no repack for the game Industria for the moment: there are too many bugs in the current version.

Toledo, Spain: Tangled History

Here is another documentary about the third Reich. Humbert and Maher will certainly appreciate it.
As Adolf Hitler established his dictatorship across Germany, he imposed a brutal purge onto a group which over the years had greatly supported him, known as  the SA (Sturmabteilung) or Brownshirts. Their numbers rose to around 3 million which was 30 times the size of the army, and many believed they would form a new peoples army. However the SA were incredible loyal to Ernst Rohm, their leader. Because of this, Hitler feared a revolution where Rohm would overthrow him using the SA and to prevent this he ordered a purge of the SA's hierarchy. This event became known as the 'Night of the Long Knives,' and over a series of days, bloody killings took place.
On the photo: Ernst Röhm on the right, along with Kurt Daluege on the left and Heinrich Himmler, was one of the victims of the Night of the Long Knives.

Today, a new comic book, titled "Thésée et le Minotaure" and released in 2016 is available on the forum.
This comic book is in French.

In the kingdom of the city of Troezen, the young and brilliant Theseus learns that he is not only the son of Poseidon, but also that of Aegean, sovereign of Athens. While walking to the mythical city, he floors a multitude of monsters on his way, becoming a legend even before he even achieves his goal. But when he finally meets his father, he discovers that he’s the prey of an odious blackmail. Every nine years, Minos, king of Crete, demands a sacrifice from Aegean to spare him the wrath of Zeus: seven young men and seven young girls are to be thrown as food to the Minotaur in the heart of the Labyrinth. To put an end to it, Theseus is ready to face the formidable creature. A great challenge awaits him ...
