    Hey, did anyone have an issue using the lightsaber? When I try to use it my character just becomes invisible and it crashes the game. Anyone have thoughts as to why? It could have something to do with the HR patch... but I'm not sure.. I guess I can do some test...

    Edit: Okay, after reinstalling and using only the HR that comes with RP 2.3.3, I still can't use the lightsaber. Anyone else have a similar issue?

    Sorry to be off topic for a moment, but what is this nexusmods site? Has anybody used it? Is it reliable for filehosting mods?

    Yes, they host many different mods. Beginning with Fallout 3 and New Vegas. They even have their own mod manager that can easily update with the desire mods for you. I think they just recently started hosting Fallout 2. I never seen it there before today.

    It would probably be an ideal place to host the highly coveted Miria mod...

    If you're not familiar with the Nexus you must live in a cave! It's always been the go to place for mods to Bethesda games. I discovered it when I started the more recent Fallout games. Within the last year they started hosting mods for all games.

    Yes, except I don't think it's just Bethesda games anymore. The Nexus Mod Manager has entries for a few Bioware games as well, and a couple of others I think.

    As I said, all games. There's a long list.

    Thanks for the info, guys.

    That explains it then, I've never played a single one of them. :grin:

    Does anyone know how to revert the Pariah Dog fix so that you don't lose Luck upon it joining & gain Luck upon killing it?

    Killap explained to me how to do this back in the day but for the life of me I can't get the glitch to work on the most recent version. Thanks.

    No, that's been a problem with critical hits that kill but did no damage. The issue with that is how scripts requiring the specific NPC to die (by the destroy_p_proc procedure) never get run, thus it causes problems.

    It's a good thing the Living Anatomy perk happens to prevent any of that happening, except you cannot figure it out without learning the hard way or looking it up online.

    Hi, was wondering if anybody had issues selling Bess to Grisham after Doctoring her leg. Feels I tried everything possible (before talking to Karl, after talking to Karl and helping Modoc etc.) but the option to sell Bess never seems to appear in the dialog menu with Grisham. Modifying the only 'Bess Slaughter' variable in the editor seemed to make no difference either.

    I do use the Miria mod (obviously tried to sell Bess before getting married) and latest version of follower cap remover (shame they are not integrated options in RP <3). Couldn't find anybody else mentioning having problems to sell her :o

    You can only sell Bess if you or Grisham can see her, or she's 5 hexes or less away from Grisham. It's a vanilla behavior.

    I have played the RP to death, and as a change of pace I want to do a plain old playthrough. However, I'm going to miss stuff like the posters, and other cosmetic additions that the RP adds. I don't suppose anyone has noticed a mod around that doesn't make the larger changes (areas, quests, npcs, and special encounters) but still makes the game... prettier, so to speak?

    I've scoured the web looking for a fix for the resolution and came up zip. I'm trying to play the game in windowed mode, but I either can't change the resolution from 640x480, or I can but the game world is very very zoomed-out with very small menus, characters, etc. I've tried changing the graphics mode and resolutions in ddraw.ini and f2_res.ini, and I can't find a setting that works.

    Edit: I've managed to get the game working like I want it to in dxwnd, but the game lags more with this. Failing a RP solution, does anyone know how to optimize dxwnd for Fallout 2 with RP?

    Okay so there's a bunch of 'addons' for RP 2.3.x listed on Drobovik's database; does anyone know if there's a list of which one's still work with the latest or should they all still work fine?

    I had an issue with the Restoration patch, quick rundown:

    • Playing and saving like usual
    • Game sound cuts out after one save
    • Restart computer
    • Won't boot, blue screen of death, crashes to Bios
    • Run the launch fixer and remove my sound card
    • Computer finally boots
    • Open FO2 and the resto mod isn't installed, save is gone

    Has anyone else experienced this?

    Hello fellow fallout 2 rper. When is the 2.3.4 release date? Am I the only one here waiting for killap to do something about it?

    *Edit* thought game had bug, turns out I'm just stupid!! Spoke to correct character to turn quest in, mission cleared (it was figuring out who rustled Brahmin) very embarrassed, but thanks so much to all the modders of the restoration project for expanding an already fabulous game into a new level of epic!!!!

    Hey all

    It's been few years since I've posted anything here. I recently reinstalled the Steam version of the game and then the RP. Everything has been working just fine most of the time. However, I've been getting some odd freezes lately, especially the last few are weird. For example, the last 3-4 freezes I've had have been during centaur encounters. Anytime during my turn(s), if I attack a centaur (currently using a flamer, but I'm pretty sure I had different weapons in previous encounters), the game just freezes, forcing me to go to task manager and shut the game.

    I can't remember have I had freezes in any other fight that hadn't included centaurs. Might have had one in the Slaver camp.. hmm.

    I'll upload the save file incase anyone wants to figure out what's wrong.

    Edit.

    Heh, I switched to Assault rifle with expanded magazine, hoping that it would fix it. I actually got further in the fight now, had only one centaur left. The game still froze though, but this time on Cassidy's turn.
