Unofficial Revival SP modification 4.3
« on: Nov 09, 2020; 08:03 PM »
Welcome to "Unofficial Revival" version 4.3

"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:

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 !!!




4.3 Patch Notes
---------------

- There are three new monsters in the game:
  - in Covent Garden steam tunnels: Melchom, abyss champion
  - in Covent Garden train depot: Jezebeth, abyss champion
  - in British Muzeum: Beleth, boss
All three have a unique look, not yet used in the game. The models come from the TCv4 patch, where they are used to depict monsters in the Asian part of the world, where the "no gore" or "no humans" censorship in the game is turned on. Each monster has a 50% chance to spawn. Like the other Abyss champions in the game, these have a 20% chance on drop one of the special implants. Beleth is standart boss with common boss loot.

- New install option: No cooldown for summoner minions - All skills for summoning major minions will have no cooldown. Experimental function, use it on your own risk.

- New install option: WOW Item Inventory Size - Most item only take one grid of inventory. Experimental function ported from Nagahaku mod, use it at your own risk.

- Revival now has partial support for the German language. The translation is not completed yet, only part of the texts are translated. The remaining texts will be displayed in English, but at least the words "missing string no." will be not appears. The author of the translation is "KalleHell". Thanks


Thanks to Bryan, who reminded me that some models of censored monsters are quite different from the originals.
Thanks to all for playing Hellgate Revival.  :)

The above guides may be obsolete for vanilla SP, but they may still hold true for the 2018 Steam version.

I've found that a "Uložto" cloud server deletes a new version of Revival for malicious content. The problem will probably be that inside the archive there is now a binder called "german" - the Czech server Uložto has long had a problem with Germany, which even uses geoblocking on it. It's a nice example of what a nonsensical world we live in today - previous versions of Revival are still available for download.
For now, i'll just leave one link, if anyone could save the new version to some reasonable storage and then provide the link, i'd be grateful. Thanks

Thank you for your enthusiasm and love, allowing this old game to continue its vitality.

By the way, HGL2038 also has Single Player mode, is there any way to Unlocks subscriber only Items, such as The Cube?

Although I created a multiplayer char in HGL2038, the language barrier caused me have no communication and interaction in the game. The bad network delay problem often caused thousands of PING values, which made me basically unable to participate in the game happily.

sorry for my poor english.

Hello and thanks.  :)
Singleplayer is not currently supported in London 2038, although this was originally considered. If you play singleplayer on a client where L2038 is installed, you will basically play a vanilla game.
Revival and L2038 use completely different ways of modifying the client, so they are probably incompatible with each other. Although i don't know if anyone has ever tried what the installation of both on one client would do.
 Although all control files are completely separate for SP and MP, both clients of course use the same files for graphics, for example. Because L2038 directly modifies the kernel program, i'm guessing that Revival would run smoothly on such an installation. In MP, however, some changes in the files from the vanilla game would probably be reflected. But there are not that many. It's an interesting issue, but i don't believe any of the London 2038 developers would be willing to address it at this time.  8)
As for the ping issues that have emerged since the last patch, i know that the L2038 developers are working hard on this issue. I believe that a solution will be found soon.

Hello. I am new to community and never played hgl with mods.
To play HGL Revival I need only the latest mod version files, previous updates are included in 4.3, right? Or do I have to download something else too?

Hello
Yes, in Revival you only need to always install the latest version of the patch, the previous ones are not needed.

If you need game patches, try this links:
https://ulozto.net/file/wmj0s2WM3I1g/patch-na-europe-germany-sp-1-2-1-18074-70-4256-exe
https://ulozto.net/file/TDueWzRjWePq/patch-na-europe-germany-mp-2-0-1-0-86-4580-exe#_ga=2.148320759.1174739942.1605788946-647374654.1558152989

Правда, по-русски здесь мало говорят. Но мы понимаем и Revival поддерживает русский язык.

hukutka94 // it's a bit tricky for a first timer. You need to follow this pretty much step by step

1. install vanilla game. (I prefer on 64bit windows environment because you can play without CD once you install it)
2. CREATE A CHARACTER. very important. you will need to load you character after each installation of legacy patches.
3. install SP 1.2 legacy patch. you can find it here https://www.hellgateaus.info/forum/hellgate-london-download-patches/
4. once the patch is installed, start the game and load your character and play for a few minutes.
5. install MP 2.0 legacy patch from the above link, repeat step 4.
6. install the latest Undofficial Revival SP mod, which Kikina just provided above, using 1.5b1 launcher
