    After a week of testing by the members of NMA, 2.1 is now officially released to the public! There were only a handful of important issues corrected, so it looks like 2.1 is good to go. To not confuse those who already have 2.1 installed, this official release is called 2.1.1.

    2.1 saves should work just fine with 2.1.1, but to ensure that all fixes take affect (especially map fixes), you will have to start a new game. There is no update file for 2.1.1, as several changes were made to the installer which requires everyone to run it again. Your save games shouldn't be deleted during the install, but just to be sure, back them up. You've been warned! And if you got the manual install, sorry, no update file as well.

    Here again is the 2.1 announcement text:

    Release time! After the many changes made to RP 2.0, some cleanup and bug fixing was in order. RP 2.1 is a significant stability update and not only does it fix bugs that cropped into the 2.x line, but also bugs present all the way back from the 1.x days. Several original Fallout 2 bugs were also squashed. This release offers the most enjoyable Fallout 2 experience to date! RP 2.0 saves are compatible with this release, but it's highly recommended to start a new game in order for all the fixes to take affect.

    Multilingual support is still not present in the RP 2.x line, but it should hopefully return in RP 2.2.

    Please read the readme that comes with the mod. It's for your own good!

    Bug reports should be posted in this thread and added to the Fallout 2 RP bug report wiki. A link can be found below.


    Enjoy!

    Installation instructions:
    1. Make a clean installation of Fallout 2 (humongous install)
    2. Download and install the RP (only use the manual install if you really know what you're doing)
    3. That's it. Don't install anything else, unless you know what you're doing!

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

    In addition to numerous undocumented bug fixes, the following issues were addressed:
    
    Abbey

    • Monks in the basement no longer wander to a corner and stay there forever.
    
    Arroyo

    • Little Johnny is now known as Little Bobby (to reduce confusion with the little boy named Jonny in Modoc)
    • Fixed a bug that prevented some dialogue with Little Bobby to not be shown.
    • Vic no longer joins your party without completing any quests for him (debug script was accidently left in place).

    I only removed the first 2.1 thread to minimize confusion. Remember that this is the official 2.1 release. I just increased the version number so that people know which version to get. Other RP threads stay as archive material.

    Sorry for disturbing but I still can`t save the game. "Error saving game! Unable to save game" window appears. What should I do? I try to look into technical wiki and bug report wiki, but I don`t find this problem...

    I have Windows XP SP3, fresh install of Fallout (from Interplay Collection? English version) and RP 2.1.1

    First of all, i want to thank Killap and the entire development team for doing this. I was watching the 2.0 thread (reading ALL of the over 100 pages) and the original 2.1 thread.

    I always wanted to thank you, but i didnt find it to be enough for registering on NMA. But now, i did find a problem i cannot solve -

    My car dissappared. Gone. After i installed the 2.1.1 over the 2.1, my car is gone. I could be a bug (map changes and stuff... but) but i never seen something like it. It is probably not a bug, because i dunno where did i left the car. It should be in vault city, but the other cities where i was - Broken Hills, Abbey, Den, Primitive tribe. Maybe i left it in a random encouter... but i cannt find it on the worldmap. I did search all the cities i visited in game, and didnt find it.

    So - Is it possible to get it back somehow ??

    I looked into the game save file, and the car variable of location is on .. - 633:GVAR_CAR_PLACED_TILE=29487
    could Derek (darek or something like that :D ), the coder for this project i pressume from the 2.0 thread, tell me what place it corresponds the value 29487 ?? Because i dont have mapper and i have no idea :D. And i seriously want to play, nearlly lvl 24 (sniper im COMING !!)

    Besides of that - GREAT gameplay, far better than vannila. Cannot play vannila from now. The NPC armor addon is perfect, having all of mah team with different armors just for fun (Me, Miria, Sulik, Vic, and till EPA will be Kitsune).

    And another thing i wanted to write when i was checking the 2.0 thread - are you planning similiar project for Fallout 1 ? If not, could somebody of the coders make for me a mod, that would COMPLETELY REMOVE the time restraints in Fallout 1 ? Like until the water gets to null, and the mutant attack ...... i have not been able to finish F1 because of that. I seriously mean it. I know that msot of you will just say "You can do it, there is worry, the time is enough" but thats ?censured?, i was trzing for several times and was unable to do so. Because i am spending all the game time exploring and doing all the stuff... like leveling. (Hunting rifle and leather armor killing mature deathclaw on hard BTW), the same i am doing in F2... lvl 23, with leather/metal on me and my team, with hunting rifle, assault rife + desert eagle/.223 pistol :D.

    That should be everything i wanted to say i hope, if not, i will post. Will be waiting for the anwer to the car problem, to at least 5 days. Thanks for reading all of this, from John Templayer .

    If you have installed the official Fallout 1 patch, then the mutant invasion timelimit is already removed. In the original version, mutants invade the vault in 500 days, but no more in the patched version.

    If you mean other invasion timelimits, such as mutants invading the necropolis, you can stop that from happening if you destroy the Master.

    Also, you can edit the file vault13.gam in the data folder of Fallout 1. You can edit it with any text editor. But I do not know if those changes apply to ongoing games. The correct directory is fallout1\data\data\

    The file has different variables, such as

    NECROPOLIS_INVADED_DATE :=110

    which means that it gets invaded 110 days after the beginning date of the game. Although necropolis gets invaded 30 days after you kill the mutants in the watershed.
