Well, unsurprisingly, it won;t let me patch 'your' 1.2 on top of the 'other' 1.2 which is already installed. Hopefully I'll have time to test my install disc tonight. Busy busy... :)

Actually, I may have an unpatched copy install floating around from when I tried to get it working in Wine. I'll let you know :)

So, I gave up, and torrented a new DVD to do a fresh install from. Ordinarily I wouldn't torrent copyrighted stuff, but since I bought a copy, I figured it's fair use :)

Of course, from a fresh install, everything worked flawlessly. My Engineer got to Covent Garden before I headed for bed last night, and so far, I'm loving it. Maeyan & co - you guys rock. Seriously.

Thanks for the help thus far. I may now lurk while I actually play through to the end for the first time :)

No problem, Glad I could Help. :D   As for torrenting the DVD, why not, It's not like you can buy the game anymore  :cry: , it's not even on EA's store anymore, really unless you have the original disc and it works there is no other choice..  Not to mention even if you could buy it, the profits are not going to the developers...  :roll:

Grats to you Belhawk.  But I would not buy it at this point..  Not sure why anyone else would either considering the money is not going to the people who created the game... :?   I commend you for going the legal and legit route. :mrgreen:  

@ Storm, Glad to hear it went fine for you, enjoy the patch, it's awesome!

belhawk, I did the same, saw a brand new copy sitting in a bargain bin for $4 and bought it just to have another registration number "just in case".

what can i say, apart from thanks ?? even being a Computer-Mongrel, such as meself, and yet
instructions writ SO exacting, that even I could install this on the first attempt .. .. big thumps UP, Crash, made it a sh1tload easier with Your "installing Tutorial", thx a LOT, Bud ..
my 2 cents on the off-topic : there ARE different versions of the SP 1.2, but, defo, the one
found on hellgateaus.info, as linked above DEFO makes it work .. am just sad i have to ditch a
few Char's, since i don't have the Cube, and for some unknown reason, can't seem to get it ..

BW, Y'all, and deliver unto ME, and all the other users at least the StoneHenge Chronicles, and soon as well .. .. ..

Step 5[/u]
Now download the Revival 1.1.0 Patch from http://http://www.hellgateaus.net/forum/download/file.php?id=1355 and then also download the Optional package that includes Normal/Elite mode, Superior Quests, and Zomper model. http://http://www.hellgateaus.net/forum/download/file.php?id=1356  Do not unzip them! Place both of these files in the same Revival folder you put the installer/launcher in.
Add "Do not unzip them!". I did unzip at first, then erased the original zip files.
Then as it didn't work I had to DL them once again to try them unzipped...

hi

i've just found the forum and this topic.  :) i downloaded these mods and i have some questions before applying them.
i installed the game 1 year ago, installed the 1.2 patch, played through the game in normal mode and started again in nightmare mode. i've got 1 nightmare mode character and 1 normal mode character. should i reinstall the whole game if i want to use these mods or they will work fine if i run them now? i play the game in hungarian language, are the mods compatible with it? :roll:

thanks.

My heart is a flutter.
I followed the instructions to a tee and everything worked GREAT.
Not sure if the Elite For Normal mod worked though.
I'm so thankful I came upon this little project when I did (your doing fantastic work for a terribly under appreciated game that deserves a better fate than rotting in the bowels of obscurity)

I never got to play online so all this new content is....well, new.
And EXCITING!
I cant wait to see what I find out there.
And being able to keep my old chars is a HUGE plus.
Man, a million thank you's from the bottom of my heart.

Hi there! :)

First of all thank you for posting the intallation-guide!

I have followed every step (Yes; I have a new charcter in Rusell Square) and installed the launcher, but it will not let me mod the game. It tells me a previous modification has been detected. I followed the mirror, you posted, and tried to install version 1.2, but it told me, I had already patched the game. The log says:

Mod installation FAILURE, reason code 4
The installer detected that some of your game files are already modified in a way that likely prevents successful modding. (They can't be properly backed up, or might lead to unwanted results / corruption of the game's data.)

I play in Windows XP, so I am using Direct X9. Before trying to install the revival files I had a high lvl blademaster. Just in case that helps in any way. I also tried backing up my character and then forcing the launcher to install the mod, but it simply ignored my request.

Perhaps I should say, I have selected expert-mode in the launcher in accordance with the guide.

Thank you in advance.

I had the same problem once, as far as I can tell you are likely that you have the latest public patch installed 1.35 something.

I solved my similiar problem with a full reinstall of the game.

Maybe someone more expirienced know a way to revert back to a older version, otherwise only a new gamesetup seems to work.
