After a week of testing by the members of NMA, 2.1 is now officially released to the public! There were only a handful of important issues corrected, so it looks like 2.1 is good to go. To not confuse those who already have 2.1 installed, this official release is called 2.1.1. 2.1 saves should work just fine with 2.1.1, but to ensure that all fixes take affect (especially map fixes), you will have to start a new game. There is no update file for 2.1.1, as several changes were made to the installer which requires everyone to run it again. Your save games shouldn't be deleted during the install, but just to be sure, back them up. You've been warned! And if you got the manual install, sorry, no update file as well. Here again is the 2.1 announcement text: Release time! After the many changes made to RP 2.0, some cleanup and bug fixing was in order. RP 2.1 is a significant stability update and not only does it fix bugs that cropped into the 2.x line, but also bugs present all the way back from the 1.x days. Several original Fallout 2 bugs were also squashed. This release offers the most enjoyable Fallout 2 experience to date! RP 2.0 saves are compatible with this release, but it's highly recommended to start a new game in order for all the fixes to take affect. Multilingual support is still not present in the RP 2.x line, but it should hopefully return in RP 2.2. Please read the readme that comes with the mod. It's for your own good! Bug reports should be posted in this thread and added to the Fallout 2 RP bug report wiki. A link can be found below. Enjoy! Installation instructions: 1. Make a clean installation of Fallout 2 (humongous install) 2. Download and install the RP (only use the manual install if you really know what you're doing) 3. That's it. Don't install anything else, unless you know what you're doing! 2.1.2 has since been released.
