    @Lexx
    This does not directly relate to et tu, but is it possible to copy the "doors close automatically" option from et tu and use it regular Fallout 2 (wit the RP installed)?

    You will have to edit all Fo2 / RP door scripts for that. @burn did a door overhaul a while ago, I guess it should be easy for him to add it as option into the RPU / UPU.

    Remind me in ~2 or 3 months about the doors and I might be able to do it.

    Thanks. I guess Burn was not really a fan of the request… :sad:

    There is a bug in version 1.6 that caused swapping description of two items.
    I checked it in version 1.5 and everything is fine there.

    Zip Gun was change to Day Pass.
    Although I do not deny that the pistol can open a lot of doors and allow you to enter many places :D

    {30000}{}{Zip Gun}
    {30001}{}{A handmade laser pistol. Min ST: 3.}

    {25500}{}{Day Pass}
    {25501}{}{This slightly crumpled piece of paper grants you access to all areas of Vault City, except the Vault itself, during daylight hours only.}

    Something is wrong with your installation. I checked latest files and 25500 is
    Code:
    {25500}{}{Zip Gun}
    {25501}{}{A handmade laser pistol. Min ST: 3.}
    Considering 300 is the laser pistol for you that means you are still using the v1.5 files instead of the new v1.6 file.

    You're right. My mistake.
    I thought you were just adding new texts to the end, and I didn't know you were changing existing ones.

    If I may, I have one more question about an error during a duel with Garl.
    I remember this error well from the original Fallout 1 and therefore I am surprised that it is also here.
    Was it not possible to fix it?

    I don't have any crashes in the Garl fight. That being said, memory errors can be caused by god knows what and they alone are rarely helpful with finding out what's going on.

    Really?
    I had this error every time in the original Fallout 1 and even in et tu.

    Do you play with english or some localized text files? Apparently the error has something to do with text strings, but the english files are all validated.

    Hmm, that's a good point.
    I use a Czech translation that I modified for et tu.
    (During the week, I should be able to send complete and tested texts for version 1.6.)

    Use ScanMsg to check all .msg files for errors.

    For whatever reason, I'm experience a crash during battles. Doesn't happen right away. Rather, it happens at random during battles. Any reason what might caused it?

    Are you unarmed melee fighter?

    I also had similar problems since the original Fallout 1.

    It only happened if I used unarmed combat, or if someone used it on me.
    It didn't happen every time. I would say that the chance of crash during battles was about 15%

    We need at least the crash message, best with a description of what happened where, otherwise there is really nothing we can do. Well, at least I personally am not in possession of a magic 8-ball for crash bugs.

    I was meaning to ask, Where would I exactly extract the SacnMsg files? Just in the Fallout1in2 Directory?

    For me, it's always the same problem as when fighting Garl.

    Well, if it's cz files, then there might be another issue with the text strings in the localization.


    ScanMsg is just dropped into the dialog folder and then started.
