    the main menu has the version info in the bottom left right hand corner - not 100% sure if it displays the localization version, however (since all I have ever played was the US version)

    Since we've talking about Fo1 this is completely irrelevant.

    Jammet, could you do one more thing for me with your version, of course, when you have a moment: Install the German version and copy only the CRITTER.DAT file from the English version, I need to know if that's the only difference needed to make the bodies appear (delete the GLOW*.map file I gave you)

    No, by now I have a humongulous install of the US game version from someone else to continue from the point where I had stopped in the german version. With both kids and the charred corpses.

    So, I could really explore the Glow and even find the Stealth Boy =).

    ... And I have my "normal" german version. The only german version there is, I'd think.

    Well, even with a fan-made anti censorship patch I never saw kids in that german game version. Nor charred corpses, which is why I started this thread looking for this red piece of keycard :cry: ...

    Again, the german version does not have kids or charred corses. Both the corpses and the kids do appear though if you simply copy the critter.dat file from the english Fallout into the directory of the german Fallout. That means they are in the map files, but the graphics is missing.

    Maybe I wasn't really clear about that before, my apologies. I thought I was doing exactly what you asked me to and reported back with the results. =)

    I am SO not looking forward to playing my German Fallout 2 game version. Guess if I have a choice I'll never bother installing it.

    Ah, that's quickly done because when I got the english game version I wiped my German Fallout directory after copying the savegames to where the english version should find'em. When you asked critter.dat earlier I already reinstalled Fallout from scratch - that time renaming the english Fallout dir. It's a fresh vanilla install.

    And so I can confirm that just placing critter.dat (US version) in there will have both kids and charred corpses appear. Just like that. Don't know what happens if I touch the violence knob in the preferences though, maybe it'll re-set everything to low violence and causes these to disappear again.

    Sorry I wrote a book here...

    Poor hack and slash censorship at its finest. Well at least you found a solution, albiet it ment getting an english version of fallout. Also no children or midgets in Fo:1 will use the burning death frms, so its erellivent if they and children are missing, since you cannot kill a child in that manner. Unless of course your crazy about kids and fire. And you only need to get the red keycard for some pretty much erelivant items (Well the combat armour, minigun and plasma rifle will become commmon reeeeeeal soon, and the combat armour is renderd junk by brother hood armour, which is rendered junk by powered armour.)

    It's of great importance for me to go down there because of the whole plotline of the game. Reading what Zax is telling me ... getting all these recordings.

    The items were all optional. =) And I imagine the stealth boy is quite a neat gadget. I'm using it in all battles now as I proceed through the military base.

    And having been down there adds a great deal of athmosphere. It's ... creeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeepy.

    Stealth boys only use I belive is it lowers the the chance your enemies will detect you for the purpose of determining succseful sneaking. Or it just makes you look all cool.

    Stealth Boy raises your sneak skill. That's it.
