New to Mods / Information would be great!
« on: Dec 13, 2016; 02:27 AM »
Hi everyone :)

I have been playing HGL for awhile and reading up about all these great mods you guys are making which sounds awesome!

I'm really new to this whole mod thing and stuff and was wondering how to install these things?

like honestly I struggled to figure out how to install patch 1.2... on the website... must be because I'm blond...

can any one give me a hand or advise? I tried downloading revival 2.0 and the icon for the installer doesn't work :S so I read up about the launcher you need and I tried using that and the launcher had the same issue :S omg sorry if I am sounding like a newb? but I'm really new to all this :(

if it helps I managed to install patch 1.2 SP

and that is as far as I could get with my experience..

if possible anyone with time pm me? and explain how I do it :P

any help would be great!

PS: this is the mod/patch or what ever it is I'm trying to get my game at please have a lookie :)



lol I will even pay some one to help me! xD

Cheers in advance!

Lea

Heya,welcome :)

Yeah,installing the mods can be a tricky process,in the sense that it's not the usual "run an installer,done" thing.No worries,though!

You can find detailed instructions here and,for older Revival mods,here.

In a nutshell,most mods share this process:
-Install the SP 1.2 and MP 2.0 patches,found here.
-Run your SP client once,then the MP client once.It doesn't matter that the MP portion of the game doesn't work,just launching it and reaching the main menu screen works.
This is an important step,as doing so allows the game to create some needed files.
-Install your mods of choice using the appropriate launcher,either the "old" one (found as an attachment here,named "install.zip") or the "new" one (found here).

That's just the basics though.The first links I provided explain the process much better.

If anything feels amiss or goes south,do tell :)

Hi Bryan,

Thanks for all the information I'm busy going step by step :) so far I am still on the point to get the 2.0 patch and I went to the MEGA site clicked download waited ages.... and when it was completed its saying I need to join the site... so I did.. going into my folders its empty so I clicked on the link again and its downloading again from the start.

I just checked my downloads folder and nothing was downloaded, is this normal? that you download and then re-download to get it :S

Cheers

Lea

Hm,to be honest I haven't used the direct download mirror in years,so I wouldn't know...
Does the torrent not have enough seeders anymore?

OMG... just did it the second time and once it hits 98 it goes back to the main screen no files or anything.

If you search in Google and type in Hellgate London Free Download, the 1st link takes you to the game and download.  I downloaded the game a couple times in the past and that site has the full game.  The game will be a ISO file, but you need to use a mount app.  It also includes a serial key with the game.

That's very odd.I'm looking into that mirror right now...

Have you tried any other links?The morbidcode mirror seems in order for me.

Edit: By the way,you could also join us on Discord (link's here).Does make communication towards solving such problems a tad easier :P

hi guys,

Got the download done after 2 hours lol but its working and I went step by step as you said and got the new version of the launcher and the revival mod 1.5b1 I believe is this the latest one? or do I have to get another patch or something I need to download?

other than that the game works :) and it say its the 1.5 revival :D

so now the question is... what is the BEST strongest character so I can go and make a awesome warrior!!!!!!!

lol in advance thanks guys for all the help!


PS: will try and get Discord :S il google what it is first :D
Cheers

uhm.... silly question is there a mod which helps you survive a little bit more? :)

maybe a mod witch allows you to have more than 1 aura at any 1 time? :D:D

:D
