    Hey, a friend of mine is trying to install this unofficial patch, but he's having problems due to Vista (just like everyone else). He can't seem to find the Fallout 2 Installation Directory.

    EDIT: Nevermind, I think he got it.

    Did he manually install the game? If not, the installer should auto-detect where the game is. What version of the game does he have?

    He had the Fallout Trilogy edition. He did it manually and it worked.

    EDIT: He would've asked himself, but you guys have banned a whole lot of email sites from being used to register. You wouldn't believe the rings I had to jump through to register here.

    Planting armed Dynamite on Sulik, parking him next to AHS-9, then leaving the map crashes the game when you re-enter the Hubologist compound.

    Hi Phil. I am glad we met just now. It has been a long time since I had the pleasure of comparing a super mutant's size to the height a a nuka cola machine.

    It really felt fallouty seeing those two names together.

    most importantly, you should know that dynamite has a tendency to always crash a game when placed on a main character and it exploding after leaving town. I can't say specifically what goes on to cause it, but it is likely the scripting is to blame.

    edit: i would not be surprised if a super mutant could carry a nuka cola machine on his back.

    Unofficial patch update time! The list is getting smaller (and more minor), but there always seems like something left to fix.

    As before, DO NOT install this over the Restoration Project, as it already includes my latest patch. I just wanted to remind everyone about this even though the patch installer will refuse to install if it detects that the Restoration Project is already installed.

    Enjoy!

    No, since the fix isn't fully implemented yet. It will come.

    Hi!
    First of all thanks for this great patch you have created!
    While playing I have encountered next issues:
    That’s true, but it is possible to take the Day Pass while standing right in front of the locker’s door. And Wallace does not say anything about it.
    I blew Gecko reactor and came back to Lynette, but she had no dialogue option about Gecko power plant. She had only:
    "1. I was hoping I could ask another question"
    "2.Nevermind."
    That is all. And it seemed that she had been angry at me. But I was not rude to her before.
    But when I repair Gecko PP, then she is nice again to me and has her standard dialogue with the option “About the Gecko Power Plant…”
    Maybe it’s due my low charisma (3), or speech skill (20), or reputation in VC: antipathy?

    P.S. Sorry for my English.

    You're right. There were blockers preventing Wallace from properly seeing the player at certain positions around the locker. Fixed in unreleased update.

    So, the description of that fix is completely wrong. Blowing up the powerplant will piss Lynette off. However, repairing the powerplant and telling her you did this will now grant you citizenship. Due to a bug, this wasn't possible before. I've corrected the fix description in the unreleased update.

    Minor update to the unofficial patch to coincide with the RP 2.1.1 update.

    As before, DO NOT install this over the Restoration Project, as it already includes my latest patch. I just wanted to remind everyone about this even though the patch installer will refuse to install if it detects that the Restoration Project is already installed.

    Enjoy!

    • No longer should the player get stuck in the ring when fighting Lenny. For real this time!

    Hi again!
    Unofficial Patch v 1.02.26.
    There are two Karls in Modok.

    After telling Karl about events in Modoc and Ghost Farm (good path), he appears on the Main Street in two incarnations: Karl#1 stands near Balthas’ house; Karl#2 stands near the church.

    Best regards, Madrock.

    indeed but at least try the newest one to be really sure of it, did you read the newest patch changelog to be sure it's not fixed? and it's not convenient to quote a work from the past, you must ALWAYS use the newest patch unless it has a serious bug.

    Ok so I installed the game, followed by the latest version of your patch, and finally the High Resolution patch 2.2c. Everything is great, except when I got to San Francisco, both of the stores in chinatown were empty, meaning they had nothing in stock. So I left and waited a few days for a restock, came back and Flying Dragon 8 had restocked the store as per its usual items, but the gun runner, Red 888 Guns never restocks anything except his cash reserve, he never gets any items. Any ideas why? Everything else seems to work perfectly. Sorry if this is a known issue, I looked around but wasn't able to find anything about it.

    This has been reported before but I haven't looked into it yet. Could you provide a save game? I know I had requested a save game about this before from another user, but sadly I've lost track of it.

    2 things I've noticed with this latest versions as compared to earlier. Actually I had no gameplay issues with v2.0, had to do manual install though, which is propably due to Windows 7.

    But now with this new version:

    1. Problem solving the Vault Village rat problem.
    (I tried to describe it better in RP 2.1 thread)

    2. Failure to make ring fights in San Francisco.
    I've heard of this problem many times, never happened to me before though. Basically I never enter combat mode automatically when in the ring, also I never get out of the ring no matter what.

    Neither of these are game stoppers but annoying anyway. Edit: posted in wrong thread, too tired i guess
