Title: Unofficial Revival SP modification 4.0
Post by: Kikina the templar on Aug 22, 2018; 08:46 PM
Welcome to "Unofficial Revival" version 4.0

"My heart stays in Hellgate."
                            Kikina the templar

If you like Hellgate and want to remember a bit of old times, this mod is the best solution for you. Contains elements from many versions of the game, while maintaining the original gameplay.
Mod retains original skills, quests and monsters, but adds some things from early game concept (for example using implants), original online game (pets, dye kits, events..), game from test servers (new weapons, rings, many types of monsters), korean Hellgate Global (bosses, weapons) and ideas of members the Hellgateaus community (expanded stash, better monsters info, cheats..).


Important ! All attachments on this forum is visible only if you are registered user and logged in.

Development of official Revival mod from Hellgateaus community it was completed by version 1.5b2.
Unofficial Revival mod (v1.6 and up) is extension of this mod - whole content of official revival is included, lots of errors has been fixed and some things were added.

Mod can be installed through "Revival 1.5b1 launcher".
You need:
 - installed game client Hellgate London from original disc or iso image (supported languages is english and czech)
 - installed 1.2 SP and 2.0 MP (TCv4) patches (its necessary run both clients (SinglePlayer and MultiPlayer) once after installation of patches)
Unpack the launcher to any location, start "launcher.exe", go to utilities section and choose "modifications - install".
On select screen load "revival un 4.0 .mod.zip". Do not unpack mod before installation !
For more information take look on topic "The "new" launcher (for Revival 1.5 and up)" from Bryan or "Revival 1.5b2 SP Modification" from Malachor.

Installation of Revival mod automatically revert all before installed mods.

Compatibility of gamesaves from foregoing versions of this mod or from original game is high, but not guaranteed.
Everytime backup your save games before mod instalation !!!



4.0 Patch Notes
---------------

- Some correctures have been made in the English version of the texts - thanks to Bryan for that

- !!! - From version 3.8 is in mod one bug (mea culpa) - Halloween event quests cannot appear in nightmare difficulty. In 4.0 is this bug fixed, but unfortunately it was necessary to reset the quest with Transmogrifying cube (culpa of FSS). New characters do not notice anything, but all old characters, which was saved in 3.8 or 3.9 version, will be called to pick up new cube from Nemo at Holborn station.
  Players will be excited about having the second cube, but only until he finds out that the cube is not an item but only a shortcut - all cubes open one same grid. So, i changed rules for owning cube - the cube can now be dropped, if you have duplicate of it (same system working on pets). Just take new cube from Nemo and one from two cubes throw away, it does not matter which one.
  This bugfix can be used to obtain "God's Breath" gun for old characters, which were founded before this function was created. Just reinstall mod with fuction "Cheat mode for beginners" on.

- Loot rules and properties (mainly base damage) of weapons Hellbores, Thumpers, Chargers, Starburst, Pyrocasters, Pyrosmashers, Negatrons, Inferni was changed. Except Thumper, these are weapons from Stonehenge expansion, with poorly set parameters (from FSS). Personally, i think that weapons have only beta settings, FSS it was not enough to finish. Weapons should now be much more usable in the game.
  Before install this patch remove all this weapons from character hands and weapons slots !!!

- Weapons Gleamcarvers, Dissectors, Starbursts, Chargers, Pyrocasters, Pyrosmashers and Inferni now make sounds (replaced, not original)

- While testing of item drop for 2038 project i found out (for my own suprise) that 3D model of Dissector shield allows use up to two fuel slots. So, newly generated Dissector shields now can have 0-2 slots for fuel.

One new install option:
- Faction Combined - Classes of same faction would share their skilltrees - experimental function, use it at your own risk
  - some people still asked me for a "skill merge" function. I asked for help Seferoth, explored similar function in Nagahaku mod and there is result. I would point out in advance that this is basically an unsupported function in beta state.
    If you activate this function, then all game characters will have in skill tree menu (upper right corner) new buttons, same like in "Lost London" mod. There is possible acces skilltree of opposite profession in character faction (Blademaster will have here Guardian skilltree, Marksman skilltree for Engineer ...).
    If you invest skill point to some skill which have both of proffesion (Blink for example), then skillpoint will be added to both this skills. Properties of this skill will be however dependent on shortcut which make in skill bar - if you take shortcut from evoker skilltree, then will be used evoker version of this spell + bonuses for evokers. Is possible use both skills together (in case of Blink two jumps in a row behind each other), all skills have own cooldown, shared is only "group" cooldown (prohibition of skill from group after use another).
    Due to problems was disabled shared use of Evoker/Summoner skills "Summon Ember"/"Summon fire elemental". Each class can use only own version of this skill

- Quest boss Kohama now have 25% chance on drop one new rune while kill. This rune can be used directly, with a surprising effect :)


Mod is now much larger than before and can not be distributed via Hellgateaus site.
Here is a download links:
https://uloz.to/!K8bofgtIvRKc/hellgate-london-unofficial-revival-v4-0-rar
or
https://megaup.net/62il/Hellgate_London_Unofficial_Revival_v4.0.rar


This is end of my work on Hellgate Revival. I will be still here if you find some bugs, or for info about mod. But i can not fix all the errors that the game has  :)
For people who want to play online as well: "London 2038" project is in stable "public open" alpha stage. Its possible make on you computer dual installation of Hellgate and play both (London 2038 and Revival) simultaneously.
You must follow this instruction:
--
How play 2038 and revival together on one computer: 1. Install Hellgate London and both patches 2. Backup whole folder "Flagship Studios" with different name. 3. Instal revival 4. To backuped folder install 2038 files 5. Keep both folders in "program files". The version you want to play rename to "Flagship studios", the other may have an arbitrary name. Do not forget to run every version with the right loader inside folder...
--
One friendly warning: Chat troll "Wollah_bee" is currently online again. Info about it see at London 2038 site.  ;D
One of the things i planned for v4.0 was support the Russian language. Unfortunatelly, after more than two months of work and practically everyday communication with a subcontractor i do not even have a working version of the language file. Nobody is communicating with me at present, so I think the project is lost  :'(

One thing I noticed is Meg no longer gives her "Pratch" quest.
Title: Re: Unofficial Revival SP modification 4.0
Post by: Kikina the templar on Aug 26, 2018; 05:24 PM
For old or new character ?
This quest is not repeatable, can be taken only twice for one character - first in normal mode, then in nightmare mode.
Title: Re: Unofficial Revival SP modification 4.0
Post by: Brimhir on Aug 26, 2018; 06:34 PM
For a new character.  I ran him through all of the station's quests and then moved on the Templar base, and Mag never gave the quest.
Title: Re: Unofficial Revival SP modification 4.0
Post by: Kikina the templar on Aug 26, 2018; 08:14 PM
Ah, Mag no give ANY quests ?
Mag must be initialized first. His first quest appears after you done some quests on Charing cross. If remember correctly, you must done some quest from Gil.
Title: Re: Unofficial Revival SP modification 4.0
Post by: Brimhir on Aug 26, 2018; 09:38 PM
Ok, this one is my fault!

I did not use the PDA I got from the Dead Pool quest, so I never got the quest to kill Cracklepop, which is her last quest.

Edit:  That was the problem.  Everything is working out fine.

Post by: Brimhir on Aug 29, 2018; 01:51 PM
Man, Katamari is stingy with those weapons!  My blademaster got the sword on the 3rd attempt, and it's awesome, btw.  My poor marksman has killed him dozens of times and I have only seen the Cabalist weapon drop once.

Is there any use for Wollah's Secret, or is that a leftover from his import?

Post by: Kikina the templar on Aug 29, 2018; 11:50 PM
To Brimhir - Katamari giving all three weapons with same probability, you are just unlucky.
Wollah secret have hidden stats upgrade - quote text is clue, you can recognize it easy - just see stats of character.

Post by: Brimhir on Aug 30, 2018; 12:35 PM
OK, thanks for the info!
Title: Re: Unofficial Revival SP modification 4.0
Post by: Brimhir on Aug 30, 2018; 12:50 PM
As luck would have it, I decided to try one quick run before heading to work, and The Steamer dropped.  So, good luck for today!

And i had read online that Wollah's Secret needed to be run through the Cube, but it didn't do anything.  I did equip it, and I can see what changed.  So, all is well!

"Wollah secret" ring can be obtained only like loot from Terrible monster, not from cube.
Ring have hidden bonus to critital chance and critical damage.

Hi,Kikina,Thanks for your work.
I have a Bug, The Boss "Death"  still is invulnerable , The gun "God's Torch" can't work?
Title: Re: Unofficial Revival SP modification 4.0
Post by: Brimhir on Sep 02, 2018; 09:28 PM
I thought that, too.  I ended up just shooting him for a while and finally he stared losing hit points.  I used 2 different characters and both worked the same.  I kept restarting, thinking he was bugged.  It's just that you need to shoot him a while with God's Touch and eventually, it works on him.
Title: Re: Unofficial Revival SP modification 4.0
Post by: Kikina the templar on Sep 02, 2018; 09:49 PM
Both God's gun (Touch, Breath) have composite missile. While firing is released one projectile and this projectile split after some time of flight. Ability remove immortality from Death have only secondary missiles.
So, you need shoot not close enough, but from a greater distance...
Title: Re: Unofficial Revival SP modification 4.0
Post by: Brimhir on Sep 03, 2018; 12:38 PM
That's the secret!  I just tried shooting from a greater distance last night, and it worked very well.

Thanks!

Oh, Thanks. It' s a good design.
Title: Re: Unofficial Revival SP modification 4.0
Post by: Brimhir on Sep 09, 2018; 07:26 PM
Just an unimportant comment: more of an FYI, actually.  These guys do not drop their signature loot.

- Rat-monkey:Relics (Holborn access shafts from Holborn station).
- Sleestak: Fuels (Upper Kingsway sewers from Covent Garden Station).
- Mini Dynamo: Techs (Green Park approach from Charing Cross Station or Green Park Station).

Not a huge deal, as there is so much else in the game.  I just wanted to mention it.  And, I like to keep the thread going, because I still really enjoy this mod.
Title: Re: Unofficial Revival SP modification 4.0
Post by: Kikina the templar on Sep 09, 2018; 08:59 PM
This monsters have loot like a normal champions, special loot gives only on first kill.
Fiirst kill loot is randomly generated. This settings is from original Revival.
For example Sumatran rat monkey have on first kill 100% chance to drop one from three items (so 33,33% for one from it) - Rat monkey claw relic, dye kit Shadow tiger, dye kit Kung fu bunny.
Title: Re: Unofficial Revival SP modification 4.0
Post by: Brimhir on Sep 10, 2018; 01:43 AM
Ok, thanks.

Luck of the draw, then.  I just hadn't seen them, so figured they weren't dropping.

Post by: Brimhir on Sep 24, 2018; 11:21 PM
I appreciate everything you've done for the game, but I sure miss checking the board to see what new things you have come up with!
Title: Re: Unofficial Revival SP modification 4.0
Post by: oeoe on Oct 11, 2018; 05:50 PM

I really appreciate all of these files.
And can you add Korean language?
Title: Re: Unofficial Revival SP modification 4.0
Post by: Kikina the templar on Oct 12, 2018; 04:49 PM
Basically, you can create support for any language that supported the original game.
But there is need a person who also speaks English and has some experience with editing texts in special formats.
I have already given support to people who wanted to create another language support, but so far this effort has always ended with failure. The text file is not small and editing is quite demanding.
So, for now is not planned support for any other language, sorry.

Hello, I'm new here and have never played Hellgate before. I tried to install this mod and I get an error when clicking the install button. The only components that are checked are remove censoring and increase monster information. The error I get says:  value cannot be null. parameter name: value.

I did the following steps leading up to this error:

1. Installed Hellgate London dvd iso and entered serial
2. Installed SP 1.2 and ran game once using SP_64
3. Installed MP 2.0 and ran game once using MP_64
4. UnZipped the new launcher zip to game directory.
5. Ran Launcher.exe > utilities > modifications > install, i selected version 4.0 of this mod.
6. I kept the default components checked mentioned above and pressed install.

Not sure what I'm doing wrong.. but I always get that error when I press install.
Title: Re: Unofficial Revival SP modification 4.0
Post by: Kikina the templar on Oct 13, 2018; 04:56 PM
Your install process is right.
This error means that the mod data is corrupted. But, on some machines i also encountered the fact that this error was reported falsely.
Try to run mod installation process several times, 4-5x. Run revival launcher, pick 4.0.zip, click on install, if error occured close launcher and run it again.
If all of this attempt fails, try re-download .rar file with Revival mod.

Post by: icu812ruok? on Oct 14, 2018; 03:20 PM
After some tinkering, I got it working. Under the components I had to uncheck remove censoring and then press install. Leaving the remove censoring checked always gave me the error. I can check any additional components on that list except for remove censoring, not sure why, but it seems to be working for me now. I'm currently 6 character levels into the game, I chose to play as a marksman for my first playthrough; having a blast so far, good mod.  ;)
Title: Re: Unofficial Revival SP modification 4.0
Post by: Kikina the templar on Oct 14, 2018; 03:57 PM
Maybe this is some incompatibility with the Hellgate game version. I have not yet heard of a similar error.
In any case, it is good that you have solved the problem.
Happy demon hunting.  :)

You must unpack mod file from .rar archive.
Loader can find only file with file extension "*.mod.zip", no matter where file is.

This might be an unusual question, but how can I download this? Generating the download link seems to time out whenever I try it. Only other option is to pay this hoster, though I'm not certain. I don't know any Czech and Google doesn't translate the labels on the buttons.

On the download page see in the upper right corner label "registrovat" and next to this is small icon of czech flag. Click on this flag, in menu select flag of UK and click on it.
Page will be translated to english.
You can start download through "Slow download" option (enter code from picture and then click on "download" button.
