Another RP release packed full of fixes is at hand and we even have some restored content to go with it too! With the imminent arrival of Wasteland 2, hopefully you can get at least one more Fallout 2 round in.
Will there be more RP releases? Well, you can only chisel away for so long, but there does seem to be some critter animations (Punk Girl, actual combat leather jacket animations, etc) being worked on and it would be a shame if they didn't find their way into the RP. And of course bug lists make me sad. But I will say this, if you've been waiting, don't wait anymore. Seriously. Just play. It seems obsession is the only driving force for me to keep working on these continued updates and that's just not as fun as it should be.
So without further ado, enjoy!
Note: Previous 2.3.x save games should be compatible, but to ensure no problems come up please start anew. There are some areas that will potentially break with old saves unless you enter them for the first time. You've been warned.
Bug reports should be added to the Fallout 2 RP bug report wiki. A link can be found below. Posting issues only in this thread risks your report being lost over time.

Restoration Project walkthrough
1. Make a clean installation of Fallout 2 (humongous install). If you are running Vista/7/8, be sure to NOT install in the c:\program files directory.
2. Download and install the RP (only use the manual install if you really know what you're doing)
3. That's it. Don't install anything else, unless you know what you're doing!
