A: Revival 1.2.1,prior Revival mods and most community mods of the time (most notably,Seferoth's Lost London series
) tend to require fewer files,and have an easier installation process.Note,most modifications come with the creator's own installation instructions in their respective threads.When that is the case,and if those differ from the process described here,those instructions always take precedence over the following.Needed files
-SP patch 1.2,found in the "Legacy Patches"
-The 1.2.1 Launcher (often referred to as the "old" launcher),found here
-The desired mod file itself.Revival mods can be found here
,and community mods can be found here
-Download and install the 1.2 SP patch,found in the "Legacy Patches"
-Run the game .exe once (either the "Launcher" .exe in your game directory,or either of the .exes in the directory's "SP_x32"/SP_x64" folder).This step is crucial as it allows the game to create some additional files that are often essential for proper mod installations.
-Download the old launcher found here
and unzip it in your game directory.
-Run the install.exe,and follow the installation's instructions.This may require that you locate your HG:L game directory,if you didn't install it in the default directory.
-In the Launcher,select Options>Program Settings>Enable Expert mode.This is not an essential step,but many mods may require it.
-Download the mod you wish to install.
-In the Launcher,select File>Install mod package,and select the mod .zip you have downloaded.
-Select any optional components you wish,and select "next".
-Once the installation is complete,run the game!
