Hello all. During the time passed since the first release of the semi official FO1 patch v1.2.x we have found several incompatibilities with some versions of the game. Looks like the are more different disk revisions of the Fallout then we thought. Most probably those are uncommon later international releases and early US specific ones. At least two fo them has been found and analysed but there are more. In order to compile a new revision of the semi official patch v1.2.x we have to ask your help. I made a validation package which will check the disk on the user's side and will produce a diffpack for the unknown releases. Volunteers are expected to download the validator and proceed with the following instructions: 0. Make sure that you have at least 1.2Gb of a free space on your HDD 1. Upack the validator script to the separate directory 2. Insert Fallout CD into th CD-ROM drive 3. Run validator.cmd 4. Disc will be detected automatically. If it won't -- you'll get a corresponding error message 5. Wait until the end of the procedure. Analysis should take 5-10 minutes or so. 6. All files found to be different and analysis logs will be compressed into the result.dat. Send us that file. 7. If you'll get the result.dat of an enormous size, at least send us logs.dat which comes along with result.dat. 8. If you got result.txt instead of result.dat then your disk is qualified as one of the well known releases. Check result.txt for descriptions. An, yes, no additional actions are required in this case. Result.dat is an ordinar Fallout DAT archive. You can browse it with any of the suitable tools to make sure that we are getting Fallout files only and not your personal data or such. The most desireable way of the feedback is the message in the current topic with a link to some of the file sharing servicies where you have uploaded you diffpack. The more users will check their disk, the more accurate will be the new patch revision. Not that even if your readme reads 'Fallout v1.0' there are at least three of thous 1.0s. Spend some time and check your disk. That's all. Thanks in advance. P.S. One more thing. It was tested under XP and 2K3 only, so 2K and Vista users could experience problems as well, But this is not for sure. And validator surely won't run under Windows 9x, sorry. I could make a compatible version on the demand but don't have enough time right now. P.P.S If you have an european multilingual version of the game or Fallout v1.2 WITH children note that they are first priority.
