 :) I have been looking at Balders Gate II:Shadows of Amn, as being mod-able, but I have been working on Vampire the Masquerade:Bloodlines. I have been trying to make a new playable clan and it ain't easy.

I haven't touched Never Winter Nights in years, maybe I'll dig it out and take a look.

Ooops off topic again  :P

Hi just a quick one, I installed the fix into a data folder using the old launcher and my chests are completely empty. Am I supposed to install it elsewhere or is it that hard to find items in chests?

What the heck is the "old launcher"?

Can anybody actually say what version it is or something?

Greetings Jimboboulett,welcome.
Revival 1.5 used a new launcher,so in this case the "old launcher" mentioned is the one used up until 1.2.1.

The launcher can be found here: http://www.hellgateaus.info/forum/hellgate-london-modification-downloads/revival-sp-modification-1-2-1/?action=dlattach;attach=2436

The launcher is contained in the thread for Revival 1.2.1,along with installation instructions that may be of use when installing any mod.The thread can be found here: http://www.hellgateaus.info/forum/hellgate-london-modification-downloads/revival-sp-modification-1-2-1/

I've also edited the link to the launcher in this thread's initial post for easier reference.Thanks for pointing out that omission,and apologies for any trouble it caused :)

That's the conclusion i had come to, and I already had it from an old installation.

I'm absolutely happy to get that fast an answer to my question, and to know there are still fans of this game.

It's a shame the files for the best experience are so difficult to come by, every years It seems I get nostalgic of hellgate and must play it anew and I'm always as delighted, but the strange thing is that only now did I actually get all the files necessary to play the "DLC" and i'll play it with the "nagoya" something mod instead of lost london so there will be a lot of new stuff for me!

This game is my favorite "diablo like" even if I don't compare it to any such game, and damm I would be happy for it to resuscitate with better graphics and full mod development support.

Anyway, thanks.

Well, I think I prefer lost london after all, but I noticed that the chests had items in them, so I don't know If i really should install the chest fix. And If I do, should I always start the game with the old launcher or the new one thereafter?

If it was Nagahaku's mod that you installed,then yeah that mod had no chest issues.The chest fix was only meant for the Revival 1.5,as the chests there would appear empty.Not that it was such a game-breaking complication,but applying the fix is an option :)

Generally,mods should be run with the launcher they come with.So in this case,1.5 and Nagahaku's mod should be run with the new launcher,whereas Lost London mods should be run with the old one (unless memory fails me).Perhaps it's not that big an issue either way,as I imagine the new launcher is backwards-compatible,but better safe than sorry I guess.

Quote from: Kite
We're probably gonna redo the whole 1.5 as we pretty much reached a point where it's nearly impossible for us to fix the existing bugs... Bugfixing is hard enough as it is as we are lacking the original development tools. In the new run we're most likely gonna do more releases in a shorter period of time with only small numbers of changes so we can easily tell if a new change causes any problem.

after reading this I decided to post my modified file... for those who don't know what I'm talking about: I've created a little modification for personal use, it allows some monsters to drop dye kits... anyway, this is not so important, more important is that changes which I've made somehow fixed the chest bug and chests contain some loot now (as it was originally intended).

I have not posted it before, because I did not wanted to waste devs time on fixing bugs which could be made by me. but now I think it is ok to post it (and I know, some of you don't use 1.5b1 just because of this bug), if revival team is going to redo the whole modification.

so here we go...

there's only one modified file: treasure.txt.cooked.

download it and install using revival launcher (old version).
Edit by Bryan: The old Revival launcher can be found here.


P.S. if any of revival team members think this mod will still cause problems to development process, please remove it <!-- s:) -->:)<!-- s:) --> .

is fixes alrdy included in new 1.5b2 ? and new launcher? or should i still download this ?
