    heh, u should be worried about the bugs (including yours) on wikia that are still open, and the ones called "confirmed and unconfirmed" that werent tested thoroughly, just my opinion. ;)

    I don't have the game installed (waiting for the RP patch) but you can try this:

    Start task manager by pressing ctrl+alt+del
    Leave it open and start Fallout
    When you want to minimize, press alt+tab to switch to the task manager
    If Fallout minimizes normally, then you're done
    If it doesn't, then under the Applications tab on the task manager, right click Fallout and click Minimize
    Sounds like a lot of work, but in practice its just one short step longer than just alt+tab

    I'd prefer a release with the current fixes, the remaining bugs are minor nitpicking, and if you had read them you will realize that most of them will likely NEVER get fixed.

    I'm sure you've found some help on the web to get you to that point, so hopefully this will make sense to you. Instead of changing the 'Mode' value from 0 to 4 in ddraw.ini open up the f2_res.ini file and change GRAPHICS_MODE from 0 to 2. This got the game running for me.

    One problem I've found though is that certain towns when I enter, I only get a black/blank map with no way to exit. Arroyo, Klamath, & Toxic Caves is fine, but The Den, Umbra Village, San Fran, and Navarro are the towns I've tried so far and gotten that problem. Any ideas from anyone else on that problem? Are those locations with maps tweaked by RP?

    Ok, I've figured it out. This is where the read/write options for /data/Proto/Critters and /data/Proto/Items needs to be set to Read Only before starting the game, every time.

    How much does the RP differ from vanilla F2 v1.02d U.S., in a overall sense? I haven't played it in quite a few years but I have good memory for things once I start playing a game again, so what kind of stuff will I find that's brand new?

    How different will the game "feel" or progress?

    Also was Kaga removed in the most recent release? : :crazy:

    Can you kill Horrigan with attacks now? I while ago I had a bug where all of the player's attacks deal no damage.

    Sduibek:
    Unlike in the v1.02, there aren't any random crashes with RP anymore. It's a rock solid experience in comparison with officialy patched game. (At least for me.) As for Kaga, watch out! He's still haunting in the wastes ruthlessly. :twisted:

    CthuluIsSpy:
    It worked like a charm with YAMM enabled, Frank didn't stand any chance. The big dude is not invulnerable anymore! :)

    Ok, great. The last time fought horrigan, all of my attacks did only 0 damage. Everyone else was fine.

    Since it's fixed, I can now start an idiot character ^^

    To Killap:
    Will there be endings for Umbra Tribe and Abbey depending on actions you made through quests and overall? Maybe you can you consult Chris Avellone and/or other former BIS employees who did the design for these areas and ask if there were supposed endings and/or their thoughts.

    Memory crash

    Hi Killap

    First of all. You´ve done a great job with this projekt.:)

    I have a Little problem. When ask Harry at vault city about the plov, the game crashes and says.

    "The instruction at 0046dd39 referenced memory at 00000038
    The memory could not be read from."

    I´ve tried to reinstall the restoration project. I also tried to change the settings in game, especially the resulotion, without luck

    The weird part is, that I´ve had luck entering this dialogue without problems earlier in the game. But now it crashes.

    I´ve browsed through different toppics about my problem, but without luck.

    I really hope You can help.

    I apologize for me English. I´m a dane.;)

    They probably should have endings, but I don't think Killap will add them. He's trying for this to be the last release, at least the last coming from him. Also, a good slide would take a very good writer, a very good graphics artist, and maybe even a narrator, IIRC. If Killap happens to be all of it, I have no other option than to call him God.

    Have you installed any other mod on top of RP?

    The easiest way is to click the "Quote" button in the top right corner of the post you want to quote. If you edit it for brevity, make sure the bracketed tags at the beginning and end stay intact.

    It feels a lot more fleshed out. The maps that were already there have a huge amount of new scenery objects added, and there are many new places and new things to do...almost too many. You can wander around for a long time without even thinking about your quest. The whole world of the game is much more meaty and satisfying and populated.

    In the future some of the maps will have some of the "extra scenery" reduced somewhat. Too much can be as bad as too little, it's all about getting the right balance. It's important any extra stuff complements what is already there, and doesn't compete. Most of the random encounter maps do that, because they are made up of extra grass and vegetation, with a few enhancements to the buildings, but other locations are a little over the top. Anyway the changes will be minimum, and most people wont even notice. :P

    Hi all, one question to the last version of RP. Is there any perception check on "rustling brahmin" quest in Klamath? I am not able to recognize the different markings on brahmins with perception of 6. Thank you.

    I don't mind the scenery so much. When I say "almost too many" I just mean there are so many locations now you can sort of get lost when it comes to advancing the main quest. Or you can advance the main quest and ignore most of the new locations, which is also a bit frustrating. It's a lot like how Arcanum feels.
