    F1 1.2 and 1.3 patches. :)
    Docs are ready. We'll start scripting after 1.2.1 and 1.3.4 patch releases.

    PS And this is off-topic. ;)

    This just confirmed what I always thought after playing Fallout 2: The Brotherhood Paladins where ripped to shreds by Gauss Guns. Man, you can't imagine my sheer terror when I read the tale of their demise, I mean, TEARING THOUGH POWER ARMOR?! That's it, I'm outta here. Some time later, I returned to see what I could escavenge from it. The only danger I found where some... LAME-O Brainbots. LAME. I hope you guys add decent defenses for the Glow in the Restoration Project!

    Is there some problem with getting another one? There are plenty of places you can get a free/throwaway email account.

    Yeah, but this forum hates them all. I had the same problem with my registration. Eventually I wrote an e-mail to admins and they activated my account manually. I've suggested this way to Jordan.

    He should try a non .ru email. Many boards reject .ru email accounts.

    I have a small legal question. With this mod you can play fallout 1 on fallout 2 without needing to buy fallout 1. What says Bethsoft to this?

    And who cares what they're saying? [censored] them. They should stay focused on butchering Fallout 3 and leave modders of previous Fallouts in peace.


    @ Jordan

    Keep up the good work :clap:

    Also, is this patch at beta/final/whatever stage?

    Well, yes. But I don't want to be sued of xy because I host the mod on my webspace. Thats my point.

    They don't care, I think. You don't hosting a full warez version for d/l or something like that... it's only small modification - nothing more ;)

    Also, there's enough file hosting servers if they're starting to threat...

    In germany they can threat you if you just link to a file.

    The first point from BN is also not actual anymore. In the latest version are the textfiles and in the next version will be the speechfiles too.

    The second point sounds ok, but I (for myself) would feel better, if it is officially announced or something like this.

    I doubt someone from Beth$oft will post an explanation here :D

    Anyway, you can send an email to their legal department (or whatever this is called) and ask about legality of such modification. But it's better to leave it as it is. So, if you feel "unsafely" just remove files/links from your website and that's all.

    You can do whatever sounds and videos established only when there fallout1. Make bat file + dat2.exe which itself will unpack them.

    Sample

    Copy the file to a folder master.dat temp and run 1.bat

    1.bat

    dat2.exe x-d data \ master.dat sounds \ speech \ *.*
    dat2.exe x-d data \ master.dat art \ heads \ *.*
