    I don't if it's just me but I've always had the impression that taking "Pathfinder" perk in Fallout 2 makes travelling on the world map even slower. Does it actually work? Is there a way to verify that it actually does what it claims?

    And it got fixed with sfall.

    But it doesn't seem any different in RP 2.3.3 and other FO2 mods that use Sfall either. Do I need to enable that fix in the INI file?

    One of the things I hate most in RPGs is skills and perks that don't do what they advertise...

    Pathfinder changes how fast the "in-game time" passes when traveling on the world map, not the travel speed itself.
    If you move too slow on the world map, try adjusting WorldMapDelay2 setting in ddraw.ini. It has nothing to do with Pathfinder perk.

    What? Well, I've always thought taking the perk would reduce the "actual time" spent on the world map, which I thought, should increase the travelling speed and that's never been the case, huh? Thank you for clarifying what it actually does. In that case, not much point in taking the perk.
