    I had been toying around with the Megmod, which I found terribly undercooked and nuked my entire Fallout 2 file yesterday, reinstalled fresh, reinstalled the Restoration project and it's all working....but there's NO item highlighting, not objects on the ground, not containers, I press left shift, NOTHING. I thought the unofficial patch by the same guy,m came with the Restoration project, and when I tried to install the Unofficial patch it said it couldn't with the RP, only could work with a fresh install.

    I kinda need that highlighting feature as I no longer have the patience to endure looking for shit. I had ADHD in real life I have quite enough of that torment in real life.

    Try opening ddraw.ini file.
    Look for "ToggleItemHighlightsKey". It should say "ToggleItemHighlightsKey=42", which is the left shift key only.
    Also, make sure "MotionScannerFlags" is not equal to 4. 1 should be defualt.

    EDIT: Check sfall-mods.ini also for highlighting options. I think that overwrites the ddraw.ini settings.

    Now I got a new problem. Every traveller in Vault City aggroes my character when I try and interact with them. I think something went REALLY wrong somewhere along the line. I have no idea what though.
