    Ok, before I report a bug, I'd just like to say thank you so much killap and company for all your hard work on this incredible project. I'm loving every minute of my second playthrough and the new content segues beautifully with the vanilla game. Kudos to all of you :3

    Now to business. I'm having a repeatable bug that causes FO2 to crash. It happens when I fight Melchior in the Mariposa Military Base. When I fight him, after killing a deathclaw, the game will crash when I target another deathclaw. I've also tried killing Melchior first because I first thought it was because he was spawning more enemies but killing him didn't work. It's always after I kill one deathclaw and target another.

    Here is my savegame: https://mega.co.nz/#!kNAzCCRa

    I hope this helps! I have edited a few stats aeons ago with F2SE but they seemed stable. Also, this is a savegame from 2.1. I know we aren't supposed to use old saves from old versions but it seemed stable until I got to Mariposa.

    Honestly I don't think using saves from old versions is in warranty, even though it "seems stable" at first. There might be some problem in your old save unless you can reproduce the same crash with starting a new game in 2.2.

    Oh. That puts a damper on things.

    Anyway I can set a flag so Melchior is dead in F2SE so I can skip ahead then? I don't really have any desire to completely start from scratch.

    @ETPC1

    I need a decryption key to download your file.

    While I agree with NovaRain, I'd still like to look at your file.

    As for a flag, well, there is no global flag that marks his death. You killing him has no impact in the game besides xp, karma, and personally knowing that everyone is dead at the Military Base. If you just want him dead for satisfaction, there isn't a way to do this via F2se. I'd say just move on.

    Ah, apologies! I'll PM you the decryption key if that's alright? Mega still confuses me but it was recommended to me.

    @ ETPC1, I would also like to look at your save.
    Melchior has always been crash happy, but usually not that consistently.

    Haha the only combination I didn't try.

    So you can change to a blonde, but only when you change gender as a long haired dude.
    This is not by design, but because of an oversight in the script.
    As there where no hero styles for females before there was no need to set it to default hero style when changing gender.

    Yup, I recently caught this when I was adding in the ability to change from default female to blonde (and the new redhead).

    All fixed.

    Along the lines of the Yakuza running away the Frog Morton gang at Redding will only use guns at point blank range. If you hit/shoot and have enough ap to run they won't fire back. They'll just chase you.

    General bugs:

    Combatants who are knocked over or unconscious still taunt but use all their taunts in an extremely fast, never ending loop.

    If you click on a hex outside the Vault City courtyard whilst the Chosen One is inside, (without lowering the gate), he will run to the North-East corner and escape off-screen.

    Thanks, but sadly it didn't. Your save don't crash more than others I've seen. I tried about 10 times and it only crashed once. Not when I had killed someone, but when I had fired and missed a rocket at one death claw and then pulled out the flamethrower and pulled the mouse over him (not sure if it crashed before or after I clicked the mouse).
    When I tried the same scenario again everything worked.
    It's just not consistent enough to get a good idea of what could be wrong.

    If you have a way of making it happen consistently, could you please give a step-by-step?

    Or maybe killap is luckier...

    Hm, only difference is that I only used the rockets on Melchior. When the deathclaws come in, I switch to the flamethrower. Splash damage, y'know?

    Maybe it's the flamethrower that is crashing? Hm.

    Darek,
    do you know how/if I can make the RP 2,2 work on my Mac?
    It runs under a Wine or something. When I copy the data folder the game crashes/runs an error message.
    A fellow here (plz forgive as I dont remember the name) gave me a link with troubleshooting but I didnt/couldnt get much help there.

    I loved RP on my PC 2 years ago, and I would love to be able to use it again, on Mac.
    Plz?

    Tackar stort och dzieki wielkie :-)

    ps: hey, whats with all this bitch-slapping here?

    Well, you don't have to copy manually any files from data directory. Just install vanilla fallout via wine and when you're sure that it's running without problems, download RP windows installer and run it. It will do all work, after that just to be sure, set protos/critters folders in data to read only, because when you run fallout, it will replace them by vanilla files from dat archives.

    When all is done, add dll overwrite for ddraw.dll in wine so it will use sfall and not wine ddraw.dll implementation.


    If you encounter "error loading cities" message box, then you didn't overwritten ddraw.dll in wine. If classical "can't read memory or something" error occurs then you installed RP badly and you have to install all again.

    Just follow steps from RP technical wiki, there is all info you need. If you have problem with running fallout at ll, look at http://appdb.winehq.org/objectManager.php?sClass=application&iId=194

    Unlimited Ammo bug:

    Give an NPC several identical empty guns and appropriate ammo. Remove/trade other guns or ammo so they won't be selected. Set the NPC's combat choice to ranged. Select 'Use best weapon' then click on 'Talk'. Click on 'I need to talk to you about your gear' then 'Put your weapon away'. Select 'Trade' then manually unload their weapons. They now have more ammo than they started with. Repeat. :)

    Updated Links on the Mods page needed

    Hey Killap

    I just released a new version of my Fallout for Android project, using DosBox Turbo. I was updating and checking my links and I noticed that the NMA Mod forum links to your patches are out of date. I have been linking people to these and using them myself. They still show version 2.1.2b for the restoration project and 1.02.27.3 for the unofficial patch.

    Your incredible Mod is a big part of the inspiration for my Mod and I even mention it in the video. Thank you for your years of continued Fallout support. Could I humbly request that you update the links please :clap: I need people to use the manual patches for my Mod. I hope you get a chance to try it out sometime. This version is how I envisioned playing on Android to be like. Full touchscreen and BT support, on screen buttons + your incredible patch giving new life and content to an epic wasteland adventure.

    Cheers

    Interesting. I never noticed or tried that one. I usually just pile them up with weapons and ammo begin with, when I acquire it.
