    Yes, male. No Smoking in vault suit, leather armor, MK1. Lighter in wpn slot doesn't help either. Full installation.

    This is first time I'm playing with the full english version; before I had RP installed on german version and had one time english and one time a german text.
    Is it normal for the english version that if someone is bitching about you, you see the bitching words in german, mixed with slight english?
    Is it also normal to see sonuvabitch? And who changed "Mind your own business" into "mind your own affair"? sounds so terrible..
    Did you remove the option that numkey0 ended a conversation or was this never present in F2? I'm sure it worked before, because now is the first time I ever got annoyed by having to confirm everything I tell the companions. Leaving 4 companions behind is like hell. Never experienced a bug with it, only convenience was that you could end a conversation without pulling a trigger.
    Also changing pathfinding doesn't change anything.
    Also, it's quite annoying that if you're in combat mod and want to shoot someone, it automatically inspects. It creates spam. This looks new as well, why would anyone want this?

    Strange, it works in my game for every kind of armors. I even tested with long hair appearance.

    The 0 key was disabled by sfall by default, since it can potentially break dialog scripts, creating bugs or exploits. You can re-enable it by adding DialogueFix=0 in ddraw.ini.

    Because with Awareness perk you don't have to inspect everyone for HP/weapon information manually. And it has nothing to do with RP, all you need is just turning off "Combat Looks" in the game preference.

    if you have a non-english fallout2 game installed and don`t rename the language folder to your language (german in my case), every text changed by RP will just show *Error*.

    @NovaRain - Tried the older version of the high res patch and now going to crowded areas doesn't lag anymore. Thank you so much... :D looks like this is the solution if you want to play the latest RP on a much slower system :)

    Nice answers, thanks. Combat Looks, nice call. first time I ever enabled it and I totally forgot about it since I was too lazy to google its explanation. my bad, sorry.

    I got a crashing saved game at Kaga, saved right after first shots fired. Wikipage is empty, want me to add it or screw it?

    someone check this savegame and see if the character is smoking, please.

    Why does F2 worldmap works so slow? If I remember correctly, in F1 worldmap was fast.

    Is there any values on Sfall that does effect to worldmap speed?

    I confirm. When on worldmap (plus there were some other screen with same issue, don't remember which one), game seems to run in normal speed, but my cursor lags horribly (moves like 5-10 times in second).
    I remember playing RP 2.1 with latest (at that time) sfall in 2010 without this issue.

    Uh, you can only smoke if you have both cigarettes and lighter, in your save you only got a lighter. I'd suggest to read the included change log for some info about new content:
    Try changing the value of "WorldMapDelay2" in ddraw.ini. Lower values = faster traveling speed.

    @NovaRain

    Changed "WorldMapDelay2" value from default 66 -> 1

    It does move as slow it was on 66.

    Edit: What happen, if I change value to 0?

    Congratulations to killap and the RP team, and thanks. :clap::clap::clap:

    I noticed one problem: what might be called "game ends in player-character death" text and voiceovers are not playing-- the graphic with a skeleton in the wastes is shown when the pc perishes, but the "You have died. Arroyo sends out others to search for the GECK but they all fail" and similar texts are never shown or heard. Is anybody else having this problem as well?

    Then try using older hi-res patch, if it still doesn't help, disable WorldMapFPSPatch in ddraw.ini to revert back using vanilla FO2 code for world map speed.

    Somehow I don't think it's related to hi-res patch. I removed f2_res.dll from game dir, started the game and worldmap is just as slow. However, if I set WorldMapDelay2=30 cursor moves more smoothly, but player also moves faster on the map. Does it affect gameplay in any way? (encounter rate, time passing, etc)?

    Looking through my dialog (data/Text/English/Dialog), I see the fragment "mind your own business" in the Dunton and Metzger dialog. I can't find "mind your own affair" in this directory. Whose dialog changed?

    The word "sonuvabitch" does indeed show up a lot in the dialog. I don't feel as though this is necessarily out-of-place--it's a word I can easily imagine the folks in New Reno (where I see it for Orville, Eldridge, Jules...) throwing around the word. I also see the non-slang version ("son of a...") used a lot in New Reno dialog.

    Ah! I did indeed miss that. I apologize for the noise.

    (Maybe some Linux player will benefit, at the very least. Heh.)

    hm, weird. I opened almost every object in EPA and didn't come across cigs. Where are they located?

    think it was horrigan's line after murdering the family. it's not in his file, so it must be in the special encounters file. god damn win7 is so useless for searching within files. Maybe it didn't change, but affair just sounds so unfluent to me. But I'd still like to know where it is located so I can check the original.

    Sure, post it. Did it crash before you had saved during combat?

    Now I remember! Heh--the cutscene with the floating text. Not sure where those are kept. I do believe it was that way in Vanilla, though.

    The phrase "mind your own business" makes more sense than "mind your own affair" for telling someone casually to go away, but I think Horrigan says something like, "This is none of your affair. Turn around and walk away." In this case it sounds to me like more formal "military-speak" and is perhaps more in character for a government bureaucrat/murderer in his position.

    Just my two cents. I concede that modern, everyday English doesn't generally have phrasing like this.

    So in regards to the cpu idle setting, it looks like you guys said either A) It doesn't matter whether you use the sfall or high res one B) Only the sfall setting works and C) Only the high res setting works (Me)

    Yeah, that's not useful for a general setting. Am I just an exception with the high res one being the only one that works?

    Welcome to Windows - where up is down and down is an orange ;)

    Did you tried checking both? I didn't get any extra slowdown because of that (not even 1 fps). Maybe checking both is the way to go? It would be easier if more people shared their experiences.
