    It's release time everyone! The long awaited 1.2 update to the Restoration Project is finally here. This release boasts numerous bug fixes, some new content additions, as well as the newly created and highly anticipated party member appearance mod. Everyone is highly suggested to update. Save games from 1.1 will work just fine with this update, but starting over is recommended if you are able to - it is not required though! This update makes the RP quite stable and what it was meant to be from the start.

    The installer is now multilingual. In addition to English, the RP now offers French and Polish options. More translations will hopefully follow in the future.

    Note: The file size of the RP has increased significantly. The installer is now almost 60MB in size and the manual version is around 33MB. Just a heads up here.

    Below is a list of what is found in this release.

    Enjoy!

    2.0 has since been released. Head over to the new thread: here

    Yay! Its here!
    Fallout 2!!!

    I hope there arent many bugs because of the new content though
    I am a total code n00b and have waited until this release before even thinking about playing

    Is it still best to install on a 1.0 install? or can i install it on a 1.1 or 1.2 disc or whatever? If it must be 1.0 whats the simplest way to get it there?

    THX you are the best ever Mr. Bear!;

    Installing on a pre-patched game should be fine - it is what I have done.

    Before i download, is this release compatible with XP/2000/98/Me ?
    I remember there was a problem that needed different executables in 98/Me ?

    Everything is outlined clearly when you download the file. If you get the installer, then just click and run. If you download the manual install, then read the readme.

    To wiki posters:

    I have since updated the F2RP wiki page to reflect the update. I have decided to remove bugs corrected rather than leave them with a strike through. Reason: People get scared when they see a large list of bugs despite the list telling them that 99% of them are fixed. I don't want to deal with this, so the list will just reflect what is wrong in 1.2 - not what was wrong in 1.0. If we want, we can have a septate section which details what is updated in every release.

    I have left a few bugs in place since some are still applicable.

    Fantastic, I will snatch the .223 Pistol sound and use it in my mod. Thank you yet again for making the world go around.

    Bug:
    If you first meet Vic without a water flask in your inventory, you get the option to ask him "Where is your friend Ed again?" and he answers "Vault City. Check that fancy map thing of yours". If you do have the water flask when you talk to him, you still get the option to ask him "Where is your friend Ed again.", and he answers "From my friend Ed in Vault City." If you then ask him about Ed after this, he says the line "Vault City. Check that fancy map thing of yours.

    Suggestion:
    When you reveal the location of Whiskey Bob's still to Sajag, you can learn from him that he has some superiors in the Den. When you argue with him to get better prices and fail a skill check, you always get an option to say "You've got connections to the Den. Come on, I know you can make me a better deal." and this option always wins. Could you make it so that this option only appears when you've actually learned that he has connections to the Den?

    The wiki has built-in page history. I think the current way is good. I think we should remove all references to pre-v1.2, unless it's relevant to people who have never seen F2RP before (who are, after all, the primary target group of that page)

    Probably not. I think Magnus did something to address this issue as well.

    Getting a fallout appears to be running in compatibility mode error. Didn't happen before installing RP 1.2. Also tried disabling compatibility and turning it on.

    This was set by Timeslip in his tweaks. There is no need to run the game in compatibility mode anymore. Are you saying that despite not running it in compatibility mode, it still fails? What OS are you running?

    Yeah I turned compatibility mode off and it still gives that error. Using Vista Home

    Distressing. I'll try and get a hold of Timeslip and see what he says.

    Um, any other Vista users here? Similar problems?

    Okay got it fixed, turns out i had some options in compatibility mode still checked. Unchecking them solves the problem.

    Now I'm getting weird colors whenever I start the game. Colors are fine for a second then immediately goes all funky.

    Edit: Nevermind...only seems to happen during certain opening sequences. O.o
