    Can anyone send me the proto file (or whatever it is) of the item 'Flare'? I'm editing stuff in cubik's editor and, for some weird strange reason, I can't lit flares anymore... the option to do it not even appears :shock:


    And to avoid creating another topic, here goes 03 questions: are the item protos of Fallout 1 and Fallout 2 the same (the ones both games have, of course)? Placing these altered Fallout 2 protos I'm toying with into the Fallout 1 folder will work without problems? And lastly, is there any harm in just placing all 580 protos there, even thought some items don't even exist in Fallout 1 - aka, will the non-existing items cause crashes or just be ignored by the game?

    About the question of the placing the protos in Fallout 1 I'm only sure about the following thing the proto files that not appears in the lst file (item.lst) won't be shown in the game they will not affect anything.
    Sadly I don't know the answer for your other question if all items from Fallout 1 have a proto in Fallout 2.

    The protos for Fallout 1 end with the Combat Shotgun...so anything after that is a Fallout 2 item. I don't see why you would have any problems with the Fallout 2 items in Fallout 1...use Cubik's item editor to check. I think the more unique story based items probably have a script attached to them somewhere in the game, but in Fallout 1 they would be just dead items. Cubik did mention how to edit the Fallout 1 items with his editor here somewhere on the modding threads - time to test that search button. :wink:

    As for the flare proto - grab the un-dat software to open up the Fallout 2 master dat file.

    Some advice - all modders need to have both the Fallout 1 and Fallout 2 dat files (master - critter) opened and easily accessible so you can explore the inner workings of both games. If you happen to mess up something in your mod you can easily replace the file..
