    I was messaging back and forth with Sduibek in July about working on revised perks/traits for Fixt, and he mentioned that he would be mia for a few months because he has personal things to take care of. No mystery really.

    I have no idea, my conversations were only about potentially helping Sduibek number balance.

    Selecting Tycho's default appearance and weapons leads to custom appearance. (tested several times with the installer) Is there a solution around it which can be done through my end? :razz:

    UPDATE. Renaming Tycho's FRM files within the vanilla critter folder identical to Tycho (green) FRMs provided by Fixt.

    I simply want to point out HMTYCLHK.FRM along Tycho's animations displays an NPC with hair.

    Got Tycho's default appearance working! :) I'd be more than happy to send you the files via PM.
    (solely missing the flame thrower animation for the default / expect the lower apparel to turn green if ever fired)

    Disabling ultimate start weapon (flamethrower and laser pistol)

    I have installed fallout 1.0 (GOG) and last 0.81 alpha fixt fixes only. Max Stone has flamethrower with start weapons. Custom created person has laser pistol with start weapons. I didn't find any option in the list of fixt custom fixes to disable ultimate start weapon. I have read this thread from page 141 which contains discuss about flamethrower as start weapon in 0.7 alpha and meaning about fixing this issue. But 0.81 alpha fixt fixes still starts the game with ultimate weapon (like flamethrower for Max Stone or laser pistol for custom created person).

    How can I disable this feature instead of throwing ultimate weapon near the vault's door?

    I have created a custom person few minutes ago (name "st411ar", age 30, stats 7-9-9-2-9-9-2, traits "gifted" and "fast shot", skills "small guns", "big guns" and "energy weapon"). The person has both flamethrower and laser weapon.

    So is the newest version playable? Last version I got, the first reply to the update was a bug report. :P There were too many minor details which were getting bugged now and then. While it's supposed to be getting major details remade and then updating minor ones.

    You could have these weapons because you wouldn't have stats or ammo. It's cool. Fallout is now 18 years old. Get over it. (Or you could customize your setup).

    30 sep 2017 should be the date of an official Fallout:FIXT. Make it purist, custom or modified. Beta on 22 apr 2017. :)

    If you still need help you really should give us some details. Where you installed, describe your issue, have you tried a clean install, new saves, etc.

    Hello everyone! Thank you all for your patience and support. <3

    Short version AKA tl;dr:
    I'm back, sort of. Life is mostly good. No ETA on the next release.

    Long version:
    • I am mostly settled into Los Angeles, and have a job starting in about a week!
    • Los Angeles is great and I prefer it much over Seattle :)
    • I have been very close to going broke for over a month, but my family is being extremely supportive, so it's okay.
    • I've also made great progress on the whole minimalism thing: if you're familiar with international luggage size limits, everything I own can fit into 2 carry-ons, 2 backpacks, and 2 checked bags. (Plus my bike.)
    • I'm in the process of finding new friends in a new city, and working through my breakup. That sounds a lot more emo than it actually is.
    • I will read through the posts and threads that have been updated since mid-July and respond when I'm able.
    • In addition to the job, I'm still finishing a class from school that I took an Incomplete for, so Fixt is still on the backburner until further notice.
    • After that class is done and I have my degree, I'll probably be spending my nights or/and weekends doing an unpaid internship doing either design or programming work. This is to get into the career that I want, and will unfortunately delay my work on Fixt even further.
    • All that being said, I do of course plan to complete all previously-discussed Fixt releases. It just might take a while.

    Thanks and gratitude to my family for making this relocation successful. It would not have been possible without them.


    Yes, this is precisely why I had myself temporarily banned. It worked quite well! :)

    Is there a way to start the game with the mod installed directly from Steam? Right now it just starts the vanilla. You were able to do it with Fallout 2's RP, so was just wondering would it work with this one as well.

    Not a big deal really, and I guess I could always add it to the library as a non-steam game.

    Could you show me or explain how it's done with the RP?

    I'd love to have everything work in Steam including the hours counter, but I considered it a higher priority to install Fixt in a folder to leave the main installation clean.

    Maybe there could be an option during install?

    I'm pretty sure all you had to do was just install RP into Steam's Fallout 2 folder. In my case D:\Steam\SteamApps\common\Fallout 2. So whenever you launched the game through Steam, it would launch it with RP installed.

    The problem with Fixt however (unless I installed it wrong) is that the .exe file used to launch the game from Steam is in different folder than the .exe for Fixt version of the game (D:\Steam\SteamApps\common\Fallout\Fallout Fixt\FALLOUTW.exe instead of just D:\Steam\SteamApps\common\Fallout\FALLOUTW.exe).

    And yeah, the hours counter was one of the reasons I wanted it to work with Steam. :p Plus, whenever I play Fallout now, instead of showing me in-game, It just shows me online like I'm playing nothing.

    @Lexx The subfolder idea I got from you, any ideas for this?


    @VincentV It's easily fixed by replacing the exe and cfg files with my versions, but I was trying to keep the original install clean. I think maybe the best option is to have a checkbox during install that would replace these files so that Steam functionality is maintained. The original files are already backed up into the backup folder.

    I can also add entries to the Troubleshooting Guide regarding all of this.

    What do you think?

    Well, just add a shortcut to the mod exe file. Steam can do this. Ofc you can only start vanilla the normal way, because the mod files do not override the original files.

    How is that done in Steam? The shortcut.

    Are you talking about adding the game to the library as a non-steam game? I'm already aware of that and that unfortunately still doesn't come with the "hours played" counter. :p

    Fantastic mod, just finished a playthrough with it, completely satisfied. Thank you so much for making it. I will be recommending it to all of my friends.
