    Found the problem. Vanilla bug. The description of the encounter is not accurate with what is actually happening. It says mantis/scorpions and brahmin, when in fact the brahmin are not spawned. Which is correct? The description or the coding? Thoughts on this? I believe in the past we've sided with what the text files say and assume coding error.

    I would say go with the text, and make the random encounter spawn brahmin...can never have too many brahmins to kill, I say. :P Anyone want steak? :)

    Hmm, so the only instance I found of this was one entry in the encounters table with mantis. This encounter happens near Modoc. All other brahmin vs critter entries in the table appear correct to me. I've corrected the one issue, but I guess I'll have to test in game and see if the problem persists for other brahmin encounters.

    (RP 2.1.2) north of Modoc, I got a "you encounter a herd of brahmin" encounter and it was totally empty. No mention of mantis. I had sold Bess to the jerkey guy in Modoc, but then let her out so I was expecting the special encounter detailed in Per's walkthrough and never got it. Maybe this was supposed to be it? Either way, no mention of mantis.

    Hey Killap, just finished this version of the RP, great work :D

    The bugs I encountered were the Shi still saying 'Now for the Hubologists' even though I'd already slaughtered them all, and occasional times in random encounters when critters would be shooting but their animation frames would remain static. There have also been times on the new encounter maps where my party and I can seemingly walk straight through the car.

    My party and I also managed to kill Kaga pretty easily on my second encounter with him as he spawned on the entrance to a cave. He was critically hit and fell to the ground, and upon getting up he wouldn't move and just got gunned down.

    And just a minor little thing when, upon returning to San Francisco after the credits, accessing the inventory and exiting would cause the Kiss To Build A Dream On song to start replaying until exiting the map. Apart from these, no other issues.

    One suggestion I'd make would be for the elevator buttons in the EPA to be changed from 'G, 1, 2' to '3, 4, 5', etc. Just to better reflect the actual levels... or even corresponding colour-coded buttons to rid any confusion?

    It really has been such a fresh new experience[spoiler:3969477f72] and I love the special encounter after completing the game too, awesome! Gonna now go try out that new weapon[/spoiler:3969477f72] :D :D :D

    Hi guys,

    Playing RP 2.1.2 I've found two bugs. Both of them exist in previous version too.

    First bug is related to the vault city bring-the-ten-bottles-of-bear quest.

    Then giving quest to the player, bartender notices what player may not bring any of "that radoactive stuff, that comes from Gecko"



    In vanilla version, this quest was at least a little bit challenging - player had have to go to Klamath, New Reno to get the real booze, because Gecko bartender could offer only radioactive stuff, here is the screenshot showing barter dialog with Gecko bartender(vanilla version) :



    There is nothing he can offer, but you can buy radioactive drinks using the dialog options.

    But in restoration project version, Gecko bartender can offer you a lot of beer and booze:



    So, the alcohol quest becomes simple and almost illogical... Player now can get needed amount of bear and booze in Gecko. I think it is a bug that brokes the original developers intentions.

    Second bug I've encountered is an issue with caravans going from Broken Hills to the Vault City. Every time I try to go with the caravan, caravan have one empty encounter and after that caravan master dissapears. I arrive in the Vault City alone. I have a set of saved games, I will post them as soon as I get home.

    And third - not sure it was not due to the lack of my attention - I could not install the RP 2.1.2 without Pixote mod. I unchecked the related check box, but installer showed a message box saying what "Pixote mod already installed anyway, and can't be uninstalled". But I definitely deleted entire previous fallout installation folder before updating. And then I launched the game I saw rugs and pots... :) (Aren't there too many pots in the Pixote's maps ? :))))

    Thank you for doing the great work guys, and sorry for the long post and bad english...

    Edited:

    Here are the promised saved games in one zip archive. There are three of them : before hiring as caravan guard, empty encounter and arriving alone in the Vault City.

    This is my first time on this forum as I just found the restoration project mod and I am excited to get it to work. I am gonna report a save game problem on rp 2.1.1, But I can save on a vanilla install. I am working on win 7 64bit and a steam version of fo2 that i just purchased.

    Thank you killap for taking the time to modify and expand a game that I loved to play years ago.

    I am gonna do a reinstall and try rp 2.1.2 only.
    EDIT: It saved when I created new after install.

    I've had saving issues before. just gives an error when I try to save, but that has not been exclusive to just RP. That's why I've never thought of reporting it...

    Usually what fixes that for me is if you load a savegame, then you should be able to save normally again.

    so I posted in the gameplay thread, arguing some business with fast shot (I didn't think it was a bug at the time). Supposedly, it will become a part of Sfall, and now I'm wondering why Sfall will field the bug. Are the Unofficial Patch and RP not changing the engine at all? (the fast shot thing being an engine fix, I assume)

    That is correct. All engine fixes/changes are part of sfall.

    hi! I have a technical question for killap.
    I have these weird rainbow-effects. I tried to change the graphicmode to 4, but i get an error-message that says "install dx9".
    System is Win7 (64bit) dx11 (was already installed)
    Did i just miss something in the settings?

    Thanks!
    Wolfz

    PS: Fallout2 Vanilla german installation and your patch (incl all submods)

    Hi Killap,

    (1) Just started a new game as a dumb character and recruited Sulik, and on a couple of occasions now after ending combat when I go to 'talk' to him, instead of there being a Talk icon it's instead the Hand, and I can take away all the stuff I gave him like he was a corpse! Also, he no longer follows and just stays in the same spot when I enter a new map or grid. Strange.

    (2) Also met Kaga for the first time but he had a rifle (hunting, I believe) instead of the standard spear vs spear early on in the game, and then the game crashes shortly after.

    Edit: Save game files in case you need them

    That happened to me sometimes before.
    For example, an NPC critical misses and loses his next turn then you leave the map, he will stay 'floored' though he's in the standing pose. You can pick up his equipments like a corpse.

    I doubt it is an old bug.

    @ Wolfz
    Just because you have dx11 doesn't mean that you have the full dx9 baked into it. You can safely update only that part from here.
    Or if you don't want to do that you can set graphics mode to 0 and instead set the high-res patch to 16 bit (that also works to fix the funky colors issue).

    @ willooi
    If an NPC is still knocked out when combat ends this can happen. What happens is that the game forgets to clear Sulik's unconscious status, and outside of combat mode he cannot wake up (as he's unconscious for a certain number of turns, and there are no turns unless you are fighting).
    Simply start combat mode, push next turn. Repeat as many times as needed until he comes around again.

    killap,

    (It was already reported and hopefuly fixed for long hair dude too.)

    A small bug I believe. When boxing in Reno I scored a critical hit at the very end of round 1. Something like
    "xxx was critically hit to the head crushing the temple good night gracie" "xxx was hit for 3 hit points"
    The boxer collapses and turn ends, but instead of victory round two starts. The boxer gets up in his own corner and comes at me again. After a few turns I manage the same critical hit again and now the boxer stays down and I win by means of knockout.
    Not a big deal, but just thought to report it.
    I have no save since boxing is in combat mode. I have a save just prior to the match, but it is kind of hard to replicate. It was the third match against "steel" mark torres or something...
