Title: Revival 1.5b1 Beta Release Chest Fix
Post by: BotmasteR on Mar 18, 2011; 03:12 PM
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 (http://www.hellgateaus.info/forum/hellgate-london-modification-downloads/revival-sp-modification-1-2-1/?action=dlattach;attach=2436).


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

Thanks for posting this goodie Bot!  :D

I am in Shogun2 cat-assing mode right now, but once I snap out of it, I will give this a go. :P

Please let us know, does this fix give us loot drops out of crates and common chests or just cash and consumables? Are elite chest drops functioning as you think the Revival team intended for 1.5b1?

chests work as it was intended to work by revival team.

normal chests which you can find on the streets and tunnels only contain consumables and palladium, sometimes they drop white mods.

any other chests drop rare and legendary items.

Thank you !so! much!

I couldnt understand why we had to wait so long after you post a possible bugfix for a bug many ppl told us is a gamebreaker.
For months i visited this forum daily in hope to find such great news.
Now i hope this works as intended ;)

Thank a lot all moders!
I only play 1.5 Beta since now, the Chest Fix decided me.
The DL of the MP1.2 official patch seems corrupt. I'm happy I had already one, DL many years ago, hidden somewhere on an USB key.

Ran the fix, for a while I thought things were odd 'cause i was finding a lot of treasure passageways.. but when I thought about commenting they all switched to hidden passageways... go figure.  Fair drops and good times all around.

Awesome work all of ya all in getting these patchs working... I have to say this really made me dust off the hgl instal ion and platform. My question is in all the code ya fellas have come across did you ever see the test center vender? I really miss that guy XD

I cant tell you how many times this game has tricked me in the same way. Random is definitely random.

Arise!!!

After applying this patch, I suddenly cannot change weapons sets (it makes the funky sound effect, but I remain on F1). I can drag and drop the weapons from the inventory screen, but they don't show up in animations.

Related to the chest fix or some other corruption? I had a whacked install (infinite loading screen) so I reverted using the latest beta launcher and reinstalled 1.5b1 and then the chest fix (using the old launcher)...

Does anyone give a rat's ass about this now that OBT is coming? If not then let me know here and I stop posting such foolishness  :D.
Title: Re: Revival 1.5b1 Beta Release Chest Fix
Post by: BotmasteR on Jun 14, 2011; 04:01 PM
hmm... everything works fine on my game... and I don't think modified file has something to do with weapon slots.



anyone else having the same problem?

Post by: Jaknet on Jun 14, 2011; 04:07 PM
Sorry not much help as all fine here, but I still give a rat's ass about these mods as I've no idea how long HG:G will run for and it's good to have my SP fix incase.
Title: Re: Revival 1.5b1 Beta Release Chest Fix
Post by: thumper on Jun 14, 2011; 06:25 PM
Ok, maybe I will re-install everything from scratch (not REVERT) and see if that makes a difference. I'll see how that goes and let ya'll know if it fixes the glitch.

I seem to recall a problem with items getting "stuck" in incorrect slots on the paper-doll, like armor pieces in the weapon slots... weapons in the helmet slots, etc. Perhaps this is related, although I didn't check off the "No Factions" option in the beta install - which I believe was the cause of this type of anomaly.

My thoughts were to use SP to test out various builds (knowing that there are differences in HGG) on classes I haven't played much (Summoner, Evoker and BM). M'eh.

i haven't had any problems either. a couple crashes but nothing like that. Good luck thumper!
Title: Re: Revival 1.5b1 Beta Release Chest Fix
Post by: Rawmeat on Jun 18, 2011; 03:50 AM
Revert doesn't always work for me some times just screws everything up,
So i just made a backup of my entire Hellgate Dir after fresh install all good now so if anything dies too much i just have to copy and done  :)

Reinstalling everything (except chest fix) seems to have returned everything to normal.

When you looked at your inventory (and weapon slots) did you see weird/odd items that should not have been there?

I ran into that when using reanimator (to share items) ignoring the warning that I had weapons equipped.  DO NOT ignore that warning.  ;)

I was able to fix one character by swapping items (not sure how I did it).  The other character I caught right after sharing the items, removing the weapons like you are supposed to, and using reanimator again.

(I had a rough time coming up with search terms for a "weapon slot bug" so hopefully this post will help others).

Nope. The only anomaly (other than what I noted) was that with one particular weapon the gun model would not show up in 3rd person mode (but was there in FP mode). The rest of my inventory seemed fine and I was able to equip armor, use potions, summon beasties, etc..

Alrighty so, finally got 1.5 working nice and smooth with all the bells and whistles, but I've noticed the chests weren't dropping any loot, only small amounts of palladium, but most of the time just being empty. So I remembered the fix I saw here. It says you need to use the old launcher to install it, but when I try to use it it says the installation isn't suitable for more modding. :o
Title: Re: Revival 1.5b1 Beta Release Chest Fix
Post by: Jaknet on Sep 06, 2011; 11:10 AM
Make sure you have the old installer set to advanced mode under settings before installing the chest fix. As this will allow you to install a mod on a game that already has been modded. It gives you a warning, but still allows you to install.

Hope this helps

Oh yeah, duh. Sorry for the stupid questions, seems like I haven't dealt with any of this for so long I forgot everything I learned.  ;D

It's fixed now, thanks again fr all the help Jaknet and all the other folks who helped me.

Well it seems that my being away and working on some mods for another even older game than HG:L, had caused me to miss this.

So whoo-hoo thanks for this fix Bot  8)

Please tell me you've been working on a game somewhere along the lines of Baldur's Gate,Icewind Dale,or being a bit more realistic,Neverwinter Nights.Hardly any decent mods around for such games anymore.  >:(

Post by: Wildman on Sep 11, 2011; 11:24 PM
 :) 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?
Title: Re: Revival 1.5b1 Beta Release Chest Fix
Post by: jimboboulett on Jul 28, 2013; 01:08 PM
What the heck is the "old launcher"?

Can anybody actually say what version it is or something?
Title: Re: Revival 1.5b1 Beta Release Chest Fix
Post by: Bryan on Jul 28, 2013; 02:39 PM
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?
Title: Re: Revival 1.5b1 Beta Release Chest Fix
Post by: Bryan on Jul 28, 2013; 04:23 PM
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.
