    In other words: you need master.dat from Fallout 1, right?

    The legal situation is clear now: to run this patch you need to have the master.dat from Fallout 1 and that means copy of the game.

    This version of the mod master.dat fallout1 not needed. But you can make a version that will decompress the files from master.dat fallout1. In this mod will weigh little, but the player will receive video and sounds. The law is not violated, because the player needs to be fallout1. And he will not be able to play without mod fallout1. And then mod can be spread without fear of persecution by the author. Or I am wrong? Uploading this mod I break the law?

    This sounds better to me. :)

    A kind of "please insert the Fallout 1 disc", if you want to install the mod. Or a easyer install, without setup, where you have to use a *.bat file.

    It's not a law breaking. You don't spreading the warez or you don't making a crack. It's the mod that allows you to play Fallout 1 in better engine (Fallout 2).

    Just do what you're doing.



    Also, one more time:

    Enough this discussion about law breaking.

    Nice Mod. Made me want to try out Fallout 1 again. Not sure if this will help any one but could be useful...

    Couple of notes:
    1. If your startup screen has Russian in it and you want English. Delete (or rename) your Text directory and then extract the English files again from the english text rar along with the patch and it should work better (at least for me).
    2. Keep encountering "Error" random encounters. Probably due to the world map. But game seems to function ok otherwise.
    3. Mod does not work well with Fallout2Patcher. Some maps appear all black.
    4. Mod does seem to work ok with D3DWindower.exe.
    5. One of the most frustrating parts of F1 was that you could not push NPCs out of the way when they blocked you in. F2 sort of fixed that but I found in this port the problem is potentially back.
      [list:e0985dfe9a]
    6. This can be fixed (on a creature by creature basis) by adding the following script to the relevant SSL files:
      Code:
      procedure push_p_proc begin
      end
    7. Of course you need recompile those: I'd hit IAN, KATJA, DOGMEAT for starters just in case it strikes again.

    [*]Talking heads and voiceovers don't seem to work even with copying the files from the master (no real surprise there)

    Hi Sonil

    For testing of the Chinese version the Chinese fonts for game, *.aaf and *.fon are necessary to me


    In mod is fallout2.exe the English version 1.02d, it will not approach?

    the chinese language mod of FO1 made by some gorillas (;p)

    is surely a bit different from the kind of mod

    you described because of the way of the leader

    maker's programming method (For example:*.aaf and

    *.fon is the same as the english version)
    .........................................................................
    what Sonil did is:

    he attached "english language mod" to zhe

    chinese verson Fo2,then

    copy zhe text in "chinese language mod" of Fo1 to it.

    the last step,he modified Falout2.exe to launch zhe game.

    and working~

    I could not run Chinese fallout2.exe.

    Try to do so

    Install the English version of mod
    Remove patch000.dat
    Start patcher.exe
    Unpack Chinese_Text.7z games in a folder
    http://jordan631.narod.ru/Chinese_Text.7z
    Start fallout.exe

    hi Jordan
    the problem is that the CN exe file is different from others,
    uk 1.02 ------ 1.13MB
    cn 1.02 ------ 1.18MB

    this makes your patcher.exe write the wrong offset in the CN version exe.

    TEXT file has never been a problem,it works fine on my version,
    what i need is a patcher.exe which can modifie my .exe in a right way.

    :oops: sorry for my poor english
    :mrgreen: whatever,you do a great job,and what's new about the mod?
