    That might come in handy if you have NPCs in power armor, or at least use the T-51b Helmet mod originally meant for the Restoration Project. So many things that could go into the unofficial patch as well…!

    Of course, I went with the really easy quick-fix of just renaming another set of helmeted power armor. Of course, this is way better. Thank you very much.

    Well, the plan was to have another release... I had the changes posted, as you can see. But then I started something else. I started working on a major revision, not just some minor update. And, now, the work is already underway. I could make another release now. But if I did, it would surely require starting a new game as I have already made some changes to major game files.

    And "what is the major revision?" you ask? Finally adding in the RP. That work is already underway. Unfortunately, I have no idea how long it will take me to add in. A number of maps will need to be redone. (Not completely remade. But new items need to be recreated (already completed) and re-added. Scripts need to be re-added. Exit grids remade. Hundreds of .pro files (walls, art, tiles, and more) remade and re-added. It is going to be a chore.) Then there are critters to remake. And a couple dozen game files, hundreds of dialog files and scripts to go through. Yeah, this is gonna take a while...

    I just meant that a new release will take a while due to including such a large project. I have been procrastinating... putting it off for as long as I could. But the time has come.

    And, I work with Nirran regarding the MM. He is always helping me with something. And we talked about some of his mods. Some I have incorporated. He knows that I think some of his mods can be a little over-powered for my tastes, though. Still, they will still be compatible with the MM for those who wish to add them in.

    As for the style of the next game, I honestly haven't even looked at it yet. I am so far behind the times. While I have Fallout 3 (the one that came with the lunchbox), I haven't even installed it.

    Goody, goody... Two of my most favorite F2 mods put together. Yippee-ki-yay,**@**:aiee: I would say Christmas comes early but given the tremendous amount of work it probably takes, I hope it actually will have been done by this Christmas.
    Anyhow take all the time you need.

    Listen, id really like y to make a little update with this stuff, cause a have a troubles with it in my current game
    -Numerous dialog and grammar fixes
    -Updated script for Balthas in Klamath
    -Changes to the car breaking down
    ---Corrected a bug with Ratch when you disagree with the price he charges to repair a tire
    ---Made it a lot easier to replace repaired tires
    ---Made it slightly easier to replace repaired components
    -Added Quick Goris animation mod (Goris puts on/takes off robe faster)
    -Can now climb ladders while wearing regular power armor
    -Corrected bug regarding talking with Sulik's sister after she is rescued

    Plus scripts with Colly gang story REALLY need to be fixed, im trying to make it to the end second times now, and cant do ant except get laid with gang boss girl. And reduce rad incoming in the town, its just ridiculous, they all should be dead 1000 time to the moment.
    Plus ive caught a bug with the sister rescuing in the slavecamp - the door says "Its not the time",or, well you know, no matter if im trying to do stealth or after speaking with gang. And i know the drill, ive done this before in the past.
    Plus ive caught a VERY VERY OUTRAGEOUS bug with unavaiable car at the toxic caves. Y just cant get inside the car, cause y get moved to the global map.
    Plus the same shit with the primal tribe. I know there is some script for the car at this place, and it should stay in the first section, but it still can appear in the camp.
    Plus with the guy, who escaped the Modoc's dead farm, and drinks in the Den - if you didnt speak him off about his story(when y first try to speak with him and dont know the right combination, hell just fall of drunk, right? y can hold everth in your head all the time), when y leave him to rest, when y can tell Modoc's head what y know him, but when y cant talk him to go back.

    Actually, there is a shitload of bugs, and i didnt even make it to the Broken Hills
    v 45.1, eng.

    Fine with me

    Looks like you're playing older version, there's 2.45.3 already with many issues adressed. Check out few pages back in this thread.

    Most issues with Colly were resolved in one of the last two versions (either 45.2 or 45.3). It is true that issues with the slaver camp were to be included in the last minor update (45.4). Maybe I can release some files in the coming days. We will see.

    Please I need help.
    I made a manual install. Here are the details.
    1 - Installed with Steam
    2 - Installed MIB88 Mega Mod 2.45.3 (copied archive files to Game folder and ran RUNME.BAT, deleted patch000.dat)

    I ran the game with fallout2.exe and started a new game. The game doesnt save. I exited the game. I ran ProcessDat2.exe and it opened a Command console it edited some files and deleted some files and in the end it exited itself.

    I ran the game again, still cant save. I exited the game. I ran ProcessDat2.exe again and it gives this message "Dat Replace.txt not found" it doesnt exit itself.

    Help would be appreciated.

    @ranafuineluva

    First, make sure you unpacking megamod 2.45.3 archive into a steam folder with MASTER.DAT present. Crucial, cause it is the file that needs updating by ProcessDat2.exe.

    Second, do not bother with runme.bat, its useless. Mib88 forgot to include certain files in the release. Stuff happens.
    Once you have everything unpacked, delete patch000.dat (CRUCIAL), and run ProcessDat2.exe. If all went well, master.dat modified date and time in file properties should show the current date and time and PROTO folder in Fallout2 main folder should be gone. If proto folder still present, copy it over from MM_2.45.3_full_repack.zip to main Fallout2 folder with master.dat file and re-run processDat2.exe.

    Now you should be golden.

    Thx a bunch mate. I have managed to run the game and save at the moment :D
    A new question. :D
    Would using fallout2HR.exe instead of fallout2.exe or changing the stuff in ddraw.ini affect in any way my using MegaMod?
    Edit: And is it compatible with vad's Fallout 2 Savegame Editor?
