    nothing to apologise for :-)

    It was hilarious, which is one reason I posted it. Glad you enjoyed it. But it does indicate that a 'saner drug use' mod might be welcome. :-)

    you take care,
    Grävling

    ps -- is there any way to change your login name once you have made an account here? lac is just my normal unix login -- from the initials of my first, the first of my middle names, and my last name. It's not that I _mind_ people calling me that, but if I had understood what it was that I was setting, I would have made my login to be Grävling, which is the Swedish word for badger. I had the wrong expectation that you would have a 'posting name' distinct from your 'login name'. Just asking.

    Speaking of Myron (or Mr. Chemmie), has anyone found a good supply of hypodermics? I remember vanilla had some in New Reno, but I've got like 10 healing powders worth of flowers and roots from just Arroyo, and I expect quite a few more from encounters.

    empty hypo can be found in broken hills shop too.. but i think the shops in f2rp restock itself normally with the almost the same stuff.. so exotic stuff like empty hypo , jet antidote, ec2mm, are lesser and lesser... unlike vanilla fo2...

    i assume restocking is a way to reduce too many items bug.. but i missed nice stuff from shops..

    @ DGT
    New Reno was the best source for empty hypos in RPv1.2, but I have not gotten that far in v2.0 yet. I assume killap has not changed much regarding shops and NPC inventories, so this is probably still true. I cannot think of any shop that stocked them, but half of the hookers have one. Stealing them is fairly easy, or just check the bodies after the casino battles. (We all know how Sulik prefers to run out into the street and whack every innocent civilian in sight rather than fight the dudes inside with guns.)

    @ joochian
    I know the restocking of shops occurs every few days or so (somebody had a list of how long we needed to wait for inventory to change, but I cannot find it now. Probably Per's Guide.) but it would be interesting to know how this is determined randomly. Is the inventory set when we enter the map or when we ask to see what is for sale? In some games with treasure chests and such, you can save and reload before opening them until they contain the items you want. That would be cheating, of course, but I know what you mean. When I get to NCR I will be able to buy a .223 Pistol, but sometimes I have to keep going back to check many times hoping Duppo has Combat Armor, (or rare Gauss rounds and energy cells).

    @ lac
    Moderators and Administrators can change your name for you. Just PM one of them and explain what happened and they will probably be happy to help.

    I'm working on it! I didn't know that Mash's Hi-res patch was a requirement, so just starting over now and still only in the North, not even as far South as Redding or up to the Abbey yet.

    I never wrote very much of that guide myself at all, you know? So if you, or anybody else, has found something new that needs to be added, {Abbey? EPA? Primitive Tribe? Shi Sub? ...?} then please send it to me and I will give you full credit for it.

    Minor early gameplay issues

    Found a couple things early on in the game which I found curious.

    - Random encounter between Klamath and the Den:
    Sulik and I, pistol equipped level 6's, got stopped by "A group of angry outcasts". The two lackeys (75HP) died quickly, but Kaga was brutal! Should this spear-chucking Arroyo outcast be 333 HP? He killed us both, and I wandered quite a while to find him again and see why I died. Seems a bit over the top.

    - Toxic Cave:
    Can't loot multiple kills in here if their bodies are in the green pools. It's only a couple gecko skins, but if looting semi-obstructed kills is a problem that will stay with me I need to be aware of it. Should I get used to pre-positioning enemies so their dead bodies are in ideal locations? I don't recall this being an issue in vanilla and/or OP 1.2.

    by setting higher world map delay, i move slower on foot or car. it helps me to get more encounters / random / special. however, it saddens me to see time goes by so fast.. 13 year limit.. time flies..

    ;Set to 1 to use the fallout 1 code to control world map speed
    WorldMapFPSPatch=1

    ;Controls the world map speed if WorldMapFPSPatch is 1. Higher values cause slower movement
    WorldMapDelay2=196

    anyone can teach me to get more encounter rate?
    or how to edit?

    ;XX OBSOLETE XXXXXXXXXXXXXXXXXXXXXXXXXXXXXXXXXXXXXXXXXXXXXXXXXXXXXXXXXXXXXXXXXXXXXXXXX
    ;XX
    ;XX ;This will change the physical speed at which you move across the map
    ;XX ;Set to 0 to leave at the default. (i.e. limited by vwait in windowed mode, or by processor speed in fullscreen)
    ;XX ;If set to something other than 0, it enforces a maximum fps on the world map screen.
    ;XX ;Changing this to something other than 0 is not recommended if you've already applied a world map speed patch to your fallout exe.
    ;XX WorldMapFPS=0
    ;XX
    ;XX ;Only set to 1 if your systems high performance timer is unreliable for some reason
    ;XX ForceLowResolutionTimer=0

    Look for a speedboat in SF docks.

    <s>I seem to be stuck in the EPA. I can't fix the light or the voice control computer. Help would be appreciated.</s>

    Okay, passed it. I wonder, why do *I* have to have high science and repair and can't use e.g. Vic to do my repairing? The game only uses my skill level, not Vic's, even if he's fixing.

    Also, where's the Doctor?

    Is there any other way to find the Slaver Camp other than asking Metzger?

    The free'd slaves would tell you the location if you talk to them, assuming you want to kill Metzger.

    in FRP1.2, after killing metzger, you can talk the slaves before freeing them, and they tell u the location of slave camps...

    So I finished the RP 2.0 today. I didn´t do everything there was to do (like never finding the Slaver Camp) but I´ll do those things the next time (or the time after that).

    The special encounter you get after finishing the game is awesome!

    Thanks once again to killap and everyone who worked with the RP 2.0!

    Thanks, but like I said, they´ve disappeared since it was a long time ago I freed them.

    Hello.

    How can I get past the level 3 in EPA (where you get through vent)? 2 Elevators don't work for me, I clicked them in a lot of different ways/positions but they don't do anything.

    From your post in the other thread, I'm guessing you're still using the old version of sfall. It's probably old enough that it doesn't support adding extra elevators.
