    As far as I know, it cannot, because it uses sFall library.

    Cool, thanks for replying. I had the original on my phone a while back, and I wanted to try MM also. Any chance it works on a Windows tablet?? I was thinking of getting one.

    I'm pretty sure there will be no problem with MM if tablet runs on any modern version of Windows.

    It would be nice if Jim Horton in Redding give some kind of reward (karma, stuff, XP) for finding his son's body. As it is, he doesn't even give "thank you" speech. ))

    In NCR Dorothy, the woman outside the building northeast of the police station, asks for help with Jack, who threatens to blow himself up. If you talk Jack out of it, you get 6000xp, and that's OK. But then you talk to Dorothy and immediately she gives you 3000 xp more, essentially just for talking to her. I think that additional 3000 xp reward is redundant and unnesessary, books she gives you are more than enough.

    The weight of the Stone Block in Temple of Trials has to be reduced from 50 to 40. If you choose ST=1 and Small Frame trait (possible, playable combination, all Unarmed weapons require only ST=1) you have Carry Weight=40 and simply cannot lift that block.

    Very good catch. Fixed for the super-weak.

    Well... Not sure exactly how to say this. All of my latest work was on my external hard drive. This allowed me to take my modding capability where ever I went and work on the MM. My hard drive started acting a little weird yesterday. I began making a copy of it this morning. Unfortunately, I was not able to copy the entire hard drive before a serious error occurred. I spent several hours trying to recover the drive, but it is still not recognized. Sure, I have the latest release, and I could play the MM just like anybody else. I still have all my tools and a ton of other files on my computers. However, what was lost was my main working folder which contained so much more than what I release in any MM version. The last version on either computer is about 2 1/2 years old, I think. So much work lost. I may attempt to use a data recovery service, but even then recovery is not guaranteed. I don't know if I'd be able to rebuild all the work I had which was "in progress" or even if I would want to redo all of it. Maybe version 2.47.2 was the last release. Maybe it's time for a new hobby. We'll see.

    If you're getting CRC errors but only some sectors are damaged, you may want to try Unstoppable Copier.

    Please, do not abandon MM!

    P.S. 2.47.2 was the last? Is it available?

    Sorry. Version 2.47.2 was the last one I was working on. It was not released. Version 2.47.1 was the last release.

    And the problem is that the drive is not recognized... Not on any of three computers, all with different operating systems. It never appears in any list of drives. And, when I do use a back door, of sorts, to get info on the drive, it says the entire thing is unallocated space and that the drive has yet to be initialized.

    If you can see the unallocated space, then GetDataBack or R-Studio can be the way to go. Both can scan and reassemble/recreate lost file allocation tables - and allow you to copy some or all found files to another drive. Just don't write anything on the drive and don't make new partitions yet.

    If the disk is initialized (visible in the system, but unmarked). You can also try to restore the "grid of partitions". Still it is possible to try PowerDataRecovery, Aomei part assistent, Minitool partition master ... & other. Good luck.

    Thanks @chieftain486 and @_Pyran_. Tried that Minitool program and a few others yesterday, but no luck there. The drive is not visible in the system when using any sort of explore feature. It is only visible under disk or device management. And even then I get references to some I/O error. I'm using this Getdataback program now and it's doing a scan. Geez... at it's current speed, it will take 80 days to complete the scan. Hopefully the slow speed is only throughout the sectors that have data (I'm pretty sure it was only about 30% full) and it will quickly finish after that.

    Edit: Well, it did speed up, or else there was another error that occurred while I wasn't paying attention. It looks like it just restarted the scan. At least this time it is actually showing the errors it finds. Well, hopefully it will work.

    Edit2: No dice. I looked at what was really going on. Getdataback isn't working either. Every single line/sector is an unspecified error 1117. I have another option, based off something I noticed last night when I tried to hook it up to one of my desktop computers and something I read today. Just placed an order for a part (SATA to IDE adapter) from Amazon. I'm going to hook it up as a slave drive to one of my other drives. I'll be able to test it in about a week. Worst case scenario, I lose a week and $6, and I'll be right where I am now, debating whether or not to send the drive to some professional group for data recovery. Best case, I salvage all the data myself.

    I had luck recovering two external drives with "HDD Regenerator". It's very expensive but I got it through... other means :D A friend who is in the business recommended it to me and it really helped me out. Nothing to lose either way! Your hard drive doesn't have to be recognized for it to work.

    HDD Regenerator may help you to "restore" so-called "soft-bad-sectors" and you will be able to use that HDD in the future, but it cannot help to recover lost data.

    Are you already ask the data recover company on this topic?
    When i star reading this problem that i remember some video when: IT PD just place the suspect HD on some machine and it copy (or hard copy) everything on other HD. So 1. go on evidence deposit and they work whit 2.
    Dint know if it a blank shot but even this info can help find solution.

    But something else i have in mind to. Isint these thing about losing data, web pages restrictions and other staffs result of "Envy or anger"?
    Maybe i only imagine something, but how about check if there was not a firewall break? (penetrance)
    AdwCleaner - ToolsLib
    (PS: Bud do it without "that" HD on)
    PS2: Got Luck

    Been away for a while and all hell breaks loose. Sorry to hear about your drive and possible stop of megamod development. If you do not continue I will understand. Perhaps some later date when that Fallout itch starts to tickle again you will come back and scratch it. Until then I will try your latest release. For all your efforts, I salute you

    So @MIB88, we never got an update on your hard drive woes. I take it your latest attempt to salvage it didn't work. Shit like this really sucks.
    Anyway, good luck and hope yiou find a way to recover your stuff without paying an arm and a leg.

    Thanks. Yeah, my attempts were unsuccessful. Tomorrow I'll be mailing the drive to a private company. They gave me a range of prices, but I won't know the real price to retrieve the data until some time next week. Hopefully it's on the lower end of the spectrum. If so, then small price to pay to get my hobby back.

    On the bright side, since I can't mod right now, I have been playing Fallout 1.5 Resurrection. Great mod.
