HOW TO: Dual SP/MP Game Installs in the Same Folder
« on: Feb 15, 2022; 04:42 PM »
We know that the premise of running Hellgate London SP Game with the Hellgate Revival SP mod and MP with london 2038 client(exclude the Steam version, which is not compatible following description), both depends on the patches officially released by the flagship studio.

 Patch_NA_Europe_Germany_SP_1.2_(1.18074.70.4256)
 Patch_NA_Europe_Germany_MP_2.0_(1.0.86.4580)

But is there a way to make both coexist and install them in the same folder? I've looked at all the previous walkthroughs and they all gave a negative answer. Maybe there were limitations at that time, but the era is unverifiable.

such as https://forum.london2038.com/t/how-to-dual-sp-mp-game-installs/618

The good news is that, as of today, from the current test, the method is feasible.

First of all, we assume that you have correctly installed MP game with london 2038 client and can enter online MultiPlayer mode.

Please refer https://london2038.com/installation-guide/

On this basis, we install Hellgate Revival SP mod, the latest version is Revival Un 4.4.

Upgrades through the london 2038 launcher will not affect Revival SP mod. Hellgate Revival launcher (for Revival 1.5 and up) in the SP mod package will delete all previous versions sp mod during the installation, and also delete some london 2038 related configuration files, so we just need to back them up. The file list is as follows:

 Data\mp_hellgate_2038.dat
 Data\mp_hellgate_2038.idx
 Data\mp_hellgate_localized_2038.dat
 Data\mp_hellgate_localized_2038.idx
 Data\mpv.dat

Note: If you installed the Unofficial London-2038-Client SP modification publish by me(Overwrite patch installation without setup), please back up the following 2 files at the same time.

 Data\mp_hellgate.dat
 Data\mp_hellgate.idx

Wait for the SP mod installation to finish, you just need to simply copy them to the original location. Enjoy.

Additional Notes: In order to switch between different mod, we can use JSGME(Jone Soft Generic Mod Enabler v2.6.0 August 8 2010 Written by Jaesen Jones) or OVGME(Enhanced Generic Mod Enabler, game mod manager based on the idea and concept of JSGME) for management (Warning!!! You can choose one of them, you cannot use them at the same time. Otherwise you may lose your files).

Revival SP mod Un 4.4 file list

 Data\sp_hellgate_1.10.180.3416_1.0.86.4580.dat
 Data\sp_hellgate_1.10.180.3416_1.0.86.4580.idx
 Data\sp_hellgate_1337_4.4.0.dat
 Data\sp_hellgate_1337_4.4.0.idx
 Data\sp_hellgate_1337_4.4.0_125.dat
 Data\sp_hellgate_1337_4.4.0_125.idx
Launcher.exe (SP game Optional backup file. You cannot enable them at the same time because of a conflict with the London 2038 client.)
