Unofficial Revival SP modification 4.1
« on: Apr 14, 2019; 09:42 PM »
Welcome to "Unofficial Revival" version 4.1

"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..).
A description of all the changes is in the complete patch notes in the .rar package with mod.

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, czech and russian)
 - 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 4.1 .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 !!!

4.1 Patch Notes
---------------

- Revival now have a Russian language support !!!
  After the failure of my another project to convert Revival texts into russian language (my russian-speaking associate has no time, again), i finally decided to make a translation on my own.
  I have processed the greater part of the text myself, armed only with my school russian language knowledge and online translators, with some smaller parts helped me Pawunia and Marcelka. What does it mean ? The translation is not good and may be ridiculous for a native Russian. But, it's still better than nothing for people who don't speak english.
  That is to say, no complaint will be accepted, only if you decide make a grammatical correction to the entire text.  :D
  It is about approximately one thousand lines of text with different lenght, in unicode text file with special format markers. Just for comparison: the original game contains around 15,000 lines of text.


- Revival now have a original new music on game credit screen !!!
  If you open credit screen in game, you now can hear a metal song "For the living" created as a tribute of game Hellgate London.
  The song comes from "Mindpatrol", a young Extreme Progressive Metal band from Luxembourg.

  https://www.facebook.com/mindpatrolband
  https://www.instagram.com/mindpatrolband


  Band members send a greeting to all Revival players:

             "Keep on slaying and see you at Murmur's place!"
                   Best regards, Luc and the Mindpatrol guys

  Thanks, guys, for permission for using this song. For technical reasons, the song is a bit shortened in the game, you can play it in full lenght here .
  People who don't like metal can deactivate the use of the song in the mod install menu.


New install options:
- Russian Tahoma Font - Replace default Excelsior fonts for Tahoma fonts in installations with russian language
  - font originaly used in game is not much good for viewing texts in Cyrillic, new font is better. Function has been taken from one older mod, author is "Evil_Good", thanks

- Multi Aura - Allow you activate every aura you learned at the same time
  - experimental function ported from Nagahaku mod, use it at your own risk. Author of this function is "Nagahaku", thanks

- Indestructible summoner elementals - Except force elementals, make all summoner elementals invincible. Force elementals cannot be indestructible, if they are to keep tanking function
 - Experimental function ported from Naga optionals mod, use it at your own risk. Author of this function is "Dank Rafft", thanks

- Faster Elementals - Make all elementals about 50% faster
 - Experimental function ported from Naga optionals mod, use it at your own risk. Author of this function is "Dank Rafft", thanks





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...

News: Chat troll "Wollah_bee" is currently gagged in online game. But that doesn't mean he's not dangerous in Revival !      ;D

I predict this will come sooner or later ;D
Was hoping more easier to instal the new mod, but I sure you this is worthy to try more than steam v.

I am getting error with launcher - "error extracting modification to temporary directory".. Maybe problem with *.rar? Any idea? Could I install it manually somehow?

Velcome to Revival !

In fact, there IS balance for first difficulty, but only if you do not activate cheat modes in install menu.
At the end of normal difficulty you can farming for good gear, so nightmare difficulty can be beat with many ways, completely intentionally totally unbalanced.  ;D
