    Haris and Miran have started a new Fallout 2 mod. This time it's a total game conversion. Haris:<blockquote>Well difference between this mod and our other mods is that we are actually taking our time to make it. And it's not supposed to be time waster like others were. In this one we are actually making custom missions, custom maps, custom weapons and bunch of other stuff.

    We can also thank teamX for showing us how to compile fallout scripts with watcom and how to make scripts actually work. Plus we managed to remove all movies that were not making any sense with the mods story thanks to Andy´s exe patcher tool.

    We also are gonna implement bottlecaps instead of money.</blockquote>Link: screenshots on DaC

    Don't use small fonts.

    a) it's more interesting than Auto Assault/Metalheart
    b) hey, you never know, it might, like, not suck, a bit?
    c) news is news

    Well, he did make the random encounter booster for FO2 didn't he?

    Other than that, I haven't liked them.

    I'll wait to see what they have to offer when they're done before I judge them this time.

    What's this? A modder actually goes out to make something based upon critiques, instead of throwing a tantrum when they can't have "black leather samurai armor" and offer less gameplay and map design ability than Romero Handheld Development™?

    Amazing, some people can learn. I hope it does turn out well.

    What did he do to the interface, though? It looks like ass.

    Agreed, but beyond that, it all looks nice. If they're not gonna do a half assed job with it, I'm interested.

    *Sigh* Now who on Earth would think that was a good idea? Now the buttons look out of place and the interface generally doesn't make any visual sense. Not to mention a third of the text is now unreadable.

    id have to agree the interface looks ass-ish. well, more complete ass, really. also the dialogue looks too formal and broken up. I mean, i cant think of FO dialogue like what he put. and i didnt see any amusing options, either. like with the patient, mebbe he should have had a nice pop culture reference like,

    "You want me t' show you a lil' trick, take your mind off that arm? 'Ere, gimme your hand."

    if you dont know what thats from, even better, so its not blatant.

    Interface eats my eyes, and I already got glasses, I don't need to get magnifiying lenses. But looks promising and at least they are making the effort.

    I only hope they take advantage of a spell checker for dialogues.

    And restore the interface to its former glory, right now it has the appearance of the grossest Winamp skin I've ever set my eyes upon.

    Eeeeegh. What a disgusting, action-techno-style, useless interface.

    Smells like Haris spirit.

    You shouldn't feel sorry for offending Haris.

    He knows. He added the smiley.

    Also, don't spam in the Fire gecko thread :P

    I'm not going to be the judge until the mod is actually done. Haris may have learned something working on his previous mods and having them tossed into the garbage-crap-feces heap.

    That said, change the interface back.

    wait, didn't Harris and Miran do the zombie mod...?

    Well, I guess we see what comes. I wanna play it... I'm like those lab animals they test drugs on, only I play with Mods.

    Oh my god, this little news finally got me to pull my lazy ass and register here...
    Can't you see how important this is...
    Sure his previous mods hasn't been outstanding (to say the least) and sure that interface is ugly and so on...

    But come on people, there are two ways of how this will work:
    you either do it yourself
    you wait until someone else does it and then you can complain about that until you drop
    you don't care and admit that you must take out your remaining anger for no real Fallout 3 (yes I am aware that those words will start some new flaming and probably some threats to some persons, maybe even a case of death of someone that used to be at Interplay).

    Be happy and wish the man good luck with the mod, it might turn up good. Good critics are good (like complaining about dialouge and interface).

    Over and Out.

    Don't be so negative, be happy you got another member instead... :P

    Anyways, it MIGHT get good... aight?
