Yeah this IS Revival 1.5b1, which Maeyan had authorized me to release any time...
since Nagahaku MOD is running into some problems with 2 last evoker skills, i think it is the right time to release Revival 1.5b1 as a best Xmas gift for the community
This is a clean version of Revival 1.5b1 without any modifications of my own, just like what it is before i joined the developing team.
here are the instructions from Maeyan & Kite:
You must download the new launcher.
This modification does not install with the old version.Install Instructions

Now launch Hellgate London!Release notes:
Edit by Bryan:
This patch is far from complete, but is a milestone release in the Revival 1.5 beta branch. A new massive amount of content has been added, including Mythic and Doubled Edged item qualites, over 15 items from the Stonehenge and Abysss expansions and a wealth of cube recipes that can be used in conjuction with 'gambling' tokens, purchased from the gambling vendor in Holborn Station.
As always with the beta releases, don't get too attached to your characters because things will change between updates that might make your characters incompatible. New changes from the 1.5a release are marked with a + and removed changes are marked with a -. Chances are I have forgotten a few changes, these will be noted on the forum as they are recalled.
As always, thank you for your support and patience. This has taken us a really long time, and there is still so much to do. But for now, please enjoy!

Patch package related info:
Some original 1.5b features were converted to optional mod packages (e.g. Monster Information Display)
Additional optional mods were added (Increased Fire Rate, Fawkes Event, Expanded Storage Mod, Purchaseable Retrainers, No Faction Requirements...)
Patch related info:
Fixed a crash-bug when trying to identify the new Doompulse rocket launcher (correct item name might still be missing)
Fixed values of some of the community items
Returned mind-control items to their original state. All mind-control items will only spawn in their regular (white) and their unique versions. Both versions are NOT augmentable!
Reason for the mind-control item reroll:
Mind-control items don't deal any damage so most of the available weapon augmentations and random affixes are pretty much useless for them. These will only increase the feed costs but won't have any useful effects on the weapon itself.
Summoner starter weapon damage display says 0-0 but deals normal damage.
- A fix that enables Moloch as a spawn is available here,as an attachment on Adinaq's post.
- A known issue of the mod is that some/all chests only contain palladium.A fix can be found here,instructions are included in the first post of the thread.Remember to apply the fix after a complete installation,including the Moloch fix if you apply it as well.
