    CotA2 installer seems to install correctly (after I did a new, clean install to C:\Games\Fallout Tactics, wouldn't install without errors to my previous location C:\Fallout Tactics) but when I try to start from the desktop shortcut it gives me the following error:

    C:\dev\bos\common\language.cpp(120): **fatal error**: Failed to parse: games/items.txt

    then gives a runtime error:

    C:\games\fallout tactics\bos.exe
    abnormal program termination

    and drops to desktop.

    It's weird, Crusade and Awaken installers worked fine to my original installation (and Crusade worked to the new clean install) but this one's giving me fits...

    Fantastic and memorable job you all did here cataloging mods and addons and creating installers for them. I would be interested, especially after my next release which will be a big bug fix release, to benefit your help in creating an installer for The Sum 1.61a. If anyone could help me to it when we'll arriving at that stage... :D

    OK, after a rough couple of starts I finally figured out the APC held some squad members for me, and that it's really not a good idea to try to be the point of the spear for the defense in the first mission. (Boy do those guys - both sides - love to burst fire their teammates...) Enjoying this one quite a bit now. :nod:

    Quick question - when dealing with the Tusken raider... err, shaman, what drink specifically is he looking for? And what do you need to do with it? Anything beyond just having it in your possession when you talk to him? I tried talking to him with the Elixir of Life, Booze, Rot Gut, and Old Flakey all in my inventory and he said I had nothing he was looking for. I'm not sure I've even seen any other forms of hard liquor to this point in the game.

    [edit] - Nevermind, found the firewater.
