    Hi! Just went back to FO2 and installed it along with MIB88Megamod2.4.

    And now i wonder if there is a bug or something as i have absolutely no chance getting past the first giant scorpion in first caves of the trial.. ive done this many times before but this just doesnt work. 1 hit then run repeatedly but i always end up dead, in one instance i tried for 40 minutes evading it with one attack every round on it for 0 damage/miss/1 damage..

    There must be the mod, this unbalance is ridicule.. i got annoyed and created an meele char just to test and its the same..

    So.. how the hell do i get past it, and if every combat is going to be like this id say this mod goes to the bin pretty fast as it makes the game completely unplayable unless you can spend 5 years playing through it..

    :evil:

    Ohh forgot to add, i already play at wimpy / easy level, so this makes things even worse..

    How do you guys do it without cheating?

    No, the rest of the mod is not like that.
    But you know, you don't have to kill the scorpion. You can just ignore it. Why not kill it a bit later, when you are stronger?

    Yes this scorpion is tough. It's a fun battle for a unarmed or melee character. If you aren't one of those then just skip it until later/forever. You don't HAVE to kill EVERYTHING.

    On the contrary, I find it very refreshing that one of those scorpions just grew friggin' huge over those years no one was in that temple XD The Temple of Trials isn't so much of a tutorial any more, just get used to that there are enemies you just can't beat until you are better. I know that you are tempted to rush through the early passages if you already completed the vanilla game, but you have to take it slow and think twice in this mod. :)

    EDIT: Don't get too disappointed, around the time you reach The Den you should already laid your hands on a hunting rifle or .44 magnum, so you should come along just fine :)

    It's also possible to, if you can keep it trying to attack you while you run from it, to grab klint from outside the temple and get him to kill the thing for you as he does reliable damage to it in my experience. Of course, he also spends much of his time running after the scorpion and not having enough AP to attack, so it can take a while. At least, that's been my experience.
