Post by: Kikina the templar 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.

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 https://youtu.be/ZYmLt6raK2Y.
  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.

FOR THE LIVING!

This is a fun mood! there's no balance.
But I understand now why: "Keep on slaying and see you at Murmur's place" lol Multi Aura x)

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

I installed Hellgate: London for the first time in many years.  I found this patch, was delighted more work had been done on it. 

The second link is giving deceptive files that isn't Hellgate London and installs different kinds of software on your system.  Deceptive, because it claims to be Hellgate files.  I had to use the non-English site and figure that one out instead, that first site works fine once you figure out what buttons to push and type in the anti spam code. 

Came here because I found Hellgate Global on Steam and was deeply disappointed they still aren't attempting to fix the issues with their Tokyo addon.  I still haven't played it and couldn't even sign up when it was live previously (wouldn't accept any name I submitted no matter how ambiguous).  Sigh.....

If anyone has any information that would give me hope for the Steam version, let me know.....

Something about listening to that Hellgate tune on Steam made me really want to play this game, LOL.  I probably won't for now, playing the new Titan Quest version with a summons build (nature/dream) and also a D2 Eastern Sun dire wolves summon build, as well as Borderlands 2 with all DLC's (was on sale on Steam recently for 15 dollars and have never completed the game).  I am, however, delighted this site is still around and these mods are still supported!  When I get bored I'll know where to go.  :)

Thanks for info, i updated download links.

Steam version of Hellgate is port of online game "Hellgate global" with minimal changes made for singleplayer play and without bug tracking and fixing.
Revival no have maps and locations from game expansions (it doesn't concern items and bosses), but great attention was paid to gameplay.

This error means that SP patch is not correcly installed, or is installed some wrong version. Try redownload SP patch from Hellgateaus and reinstall it.
Title: Re: Unofficial Revival SP modification 4.1
Post by: Kotaidis on May 27, 2019; 05:29 PM
i did download what you said but there is another problem when i try installing the patches you said " cannot find hellgate london. Select Launcher exe from the game directory" i try finding game shortcut but another error pops up "Invalid or missing SKU"
Title: Re: Unofficial Revival SP modification 4.1
Post by: Kikina the templar on May 28, 2019; 07:02 AM
"Invalid or missing SKU" is problem with region - versions of client and patches do not fit together or with install language.
It can only be that individual components cannot find each other.
I know from my own experience that on some computers Hellgate can't be installed to user defined place.
Try install game to default location.

is there a Chance that we get a german Version of the mod?
Title: Re: Unofficial Revival SP modification 4.1
Post by: Kikina the templar on Jun 07, 2019; 08:21 PM
Not for now.
I only know the basics of German language, we would first have to find someone who wanted to work on this project.

Howdy! Reinstalling this I noticed the newbie gun included into the package. It' cool and all that, but two thirds of the classes are ill-suited for gunning. A ring would've been better. Out of curiosity, how hard it would be to transfer the invincibility effect to a ring for someone who knows nothing about Hellgate modding?
Title: Re: Unofficial Revival SP modification 4.1
Post by: Kikina the templar on Jun 28, 2019; 05:52 PM
Hello.
This weapon is really only for newbies - its low level atefact without possibility of upgrade it. I think so revival no  need classic "god mode", players on high level (all three faction) can kill all bosses in game without problems...
For editing items you need some experience with Reanimator. Working with the reanimator is always quite complicated.
Title: Re: Unofficial Revival SP modification 4.1
Post by: Elsevier on Jun 28, 2019; 07:02 PM
Alright then. It's not that I have problems with the game, I played through it on elite/nightmare enough, but sometimes messing with god mode is fun, and there aren't any rings and trinkets whatsoever in the early-mid game so I figured it wouldn't hurt to ask if that gun can be swapped to a ring with the same effects by editing a .txt in the mod archive. Anyway, thanks for continuous work on this mod.

G'Day Sir!

2 problems: uloz.to is not accessible from german IP's and the mega.up download results again in this very suspicious EXE file that installs.....something.

Can you have a look at the download links?
Title: Re: Unofficial Revival SP modification 4.1
Post by: Kikina the templar on Aug 26, 2019; 02:07 PM
Resolved via Discord chat.

For others people:
How download Revival from MEGA.UP - after click on link, main screen appears with time limit. Click once to screen and close pop up window. Then wait to timelimit  ends. Click on download button, close pop up window. Click again on download button and close pop up window again. Third click on download button is link to rar file with Revival.

Link to Google drive was added to start of topic, thanks to Frickeladmin  :)

Hello  :)

Revival cannot be installed on Steam version of Hellgate, only game client from 2007 year is supported.
If you have original client and both patches (SP + MP) installed properly, try run mod installer like a administrator - on some systems is it necessary.
Title: Re: Unofficial Revival SP modification 4.1
Post by: Elsevier on Sep 11, 2019; 08:43 PM
Steam version is bugged, heavily cut and completely incompatible with mods for proper versions. Jury rigging it is possible, but you'd need some know-how about Hellgate modding, and obviously it wouldn't run as smooth. General advice - avoid Steam versions.

HELLGATE.London-PLAZA and HGL.Multi8.LossyRepack
Those sound like pirate versions of the game. And judging from that "lossy" thing, not identical to official version.

1. Get a clean non-Steam version. Install it.
2. Download and install patches (https://mega.nz/#F!pQsVUC6Q!PMEREm9fD_g39FKOMwOf_w) SP 1.6 and MP 2.0.
3. Run both single-player and multi-player game once.
4. Run Revival launcher and install the mod.

As Kikina says all must be done with admin privileges, but I think your problem is using Steam/pirate versions and, perhaps, not running both MP and SP games before installing the mod.

Greetings.

I'm trying to hunt for top-tier helmets that are supposed to drop from Moloch, and I get none. The side areas around St. Paul station do not produce hellrifts at all, so I'm running between that station and Liverpool Street, finding lv. 48 Moloch with only Seraph/Cybernet/Feral sets. For what I know, the requirement for these helmets is killing Moloch at lv. 44+. Any advice?

The current version installed is 3.9, and I have found these helmets previously, in 3.5 or so.

Hello.  :)
Apparently you're just not lucky.
If you're talking about Veiled Threat/Eyes of the Maverick/Face of the Crusader, in v4.1 of Revival have Molly 20% chance to drop one of them on kill, regardless of level. All three helmets can drop from normal mobs (with very little chance) from level 48, and can appears at merchants.
Helmets was added to Revival in version 3.2 (after switching to new player 3D model) and drop chance is unchanged in all subsequent versions.
Title: Re: Unofficial Revival SP modification 4.1
Post by: Antediluvian on Sep 27, 2019; 12:28 AM
Those are part of the aforementioned Moloch sets that drop even in NG. What I'm looking for is Viz Guard for Hunt, some Sydonai-looking helm for Cabal, and (Seraph) helm for Temple. I believe there was a picture marked "Hellgate Global armor" for those, with a note saying "lv. 44+".
To clarify: is hellrift spawn possible within the last 4 side areas around St. Paul station?

One more thing: the last version's changelog mentions Russian localization of makeshift quality. I'm a native speaker, and I volunteer to help translating in-game texts. I need to know the total amount of text in words to assess the time required. Also, some details need to be settled, like whether or not to translate unique gear names. Interested?
Title: Re: Unofficial Revival SP modification 4.1
Post by: Kikina the templar on Sep 27, 2019; 10:23 PM
Dark Visage/Techa VizGuard/Angelic Visage is part of Abyss "uber" armor (from test center MP patch). From Revival patch 3.1 can be looted from Moloch.
Excerpt from patch notes:
"- Moloch now can drop Abyss "uber" set armor with original look. 100% chance on kill, one from 7 pieces per class, always for current class only. All pieces have same chance for drop. Armor can have legendary, double-edged, mythic or unique quality. Level of armor is not fixed, depends on Moloch level. Uniques have same affixes like armor from Vitava"
Vitava can drop same armor with other skin. Third option is loot from Berial - armor from Berial have few modifications (splash damage on each piece) and skin from Hellgate Global "red" armor set. This skin have 3D model from old Hellgate, new is only textures. Armor set with properties from Hellgate Global is not in the Revival.

Chance on hellrift - Church yard, Paternoster Row, Cheapside and Little Britain have 15% on spawn, hellrift cannot appear on West Smithfield.

About translation - any help is always welcome. Attached are all three localization files for Revival. Files have a unicode text format. If you want, its possible to change all the texts into quotation marks in russian version. You will need a text editor that will also show you invisible characters (tabs, ending lines ...). These characters form the file format and cant never be changed, otherwise the file will stop working. Also be aware of the two types of so-called "soft spaces" that are found mainly in flavor texts and through which new rows begin.
Do not change line names ("stringid") and control characters (singular, default, [string1] ...)
Unfortunately, the final text can only be checked in the game itself.
Any questions post here, or write to me directly.
