    Are the bug fixes separate from the new added/changed content?

    Wow, 342 downloads of alpha 5.2 already, nice!

    Generally speaking, no.

    ---------------------------------------------------------------------------------

    If everyone getting crashes would be so kind as to add it to the Bug Reports wiki page (link in my sig).

    Same version, installed Fallout from GOG, then FIXIT. Nothing else added.

    No but I mean is it like alpha 4, alpha 5.2 etc.

    It bums me out how many crashes people are getting :(

    I just noticed a report of Junktown crashing when the player tries to leave the map. I also have this crash, it's the same as when saving. Probably the same issue, but I made a separate entry.

    Oh, and version 5.2.

    Awesome, thanks.

    I'm so fucking tired of crashes! A few of them I don't even know what's causing it, so what I'll have to do is just pore over scripts and map files until I find the culprit. The dark-and-boring side of modding. :x

    EDIT: The music in your sig is pretty awesome dude :clap: Reminds me of Opeth, which is a big compliment because they're one of my favorite metal bands.

    What are your favorite bands in Metal?

    I'm not sure there's much Opeth influence there, but thanks.

    I have too many bands that I love to count. I've been on a Swedish death metal binge the last several months, so it's been mostly bands like Dismember, Entombed, Bloodbath, Edge of Sanity, etc. but also a lot of stuff from the same general region, like Asphyx, Pestilence, Demigod and others. That said, I also love basically every other form of metal.

    Vance bugs are fixed in my work-in-progress files, as is the AI that prevented Mr Handy from shooting you, and also the Enemies Never Run AI is now an optional implementation. (the "Survival" stuff if any of you remember that from the old versions)

    Off-topic extravaganza...

    Spotted the word "Opeth" and had to check it out myself.
    Doesn't sound much like Opeth to me and that's certainly not a bad thing in this case - especially considering their awful latest effort which I obviously won't mention by name.
    Besides "Watershed" there's only the odd good song from their earlier works.... In my opinion, of course. 8-)

    Now... back on-topic(ish).

    You, Sduibek, is king! Once this multimod is perfected you'll ascend to the stars.


    EDIT:
    sea, noticed you're from Toronto. Plan on going to "The opera house" 1'st October? Ronnie - the drummer in GRAVE - has been complaining about not-so-sold-out-houses. Might need your support. :wink:

    Wait, so you like all of Watershed but not all songs on any of the other albums? Interesting.
    I actually hated Opeth the first time I heard them. I did an lol at the "cookie monster" vocals. They've since become my #2 favorite band (behind Dream Theater). Go figure 8-)


    Anyway, the point is sea's stuff is really good music. Any plans on doing more?


    Thank you!

    Sometimes it's hard, tedious work but I love it. I just wish I could do this instead of working, because this is way more fun than any job I've had.

    I'll do my best. Sorry guys

    Gee, never heard that story before (actually that probably makes for 95% of Opeth's fanbase).

    My Arms, Your Hearse and Still Life are good. Watershed, Deliverance and Ghost Reveries have some good songs. Problem is that when Opeth isn't good, it's just completely uninteresting. I like them a lot less these days than I used to, especially once I realized that most of the ideas were stolen from Edge of Sanity's "Crimson" album and old In Flames.

    I am saving up for a seven-string because I don't want to downtune my current guitar (as it kinda fucks with my current efforts to learn more music theory, plus playing with like 13-60 strings is fucking annoying, as is setting up a Floyd Rose for tuning changes, so I'd rather not if I can avoid it).

    Well I've been looking around but I can't seem to find this compatibility tool you've mentioned, unless you meant XP mode but that not really an option seeing as it's a VM without hardware acceleration support...

    Don't worry about it, I don't think it's worth your time trying to track down. Plus, my understanding is the 64bit-vs-16bit is actually at the hardware level, so I'd be extremely surprised if it was possible to ever run 16-bit software on a 64-bit architecture.

    I don't think the crashes caused by corrupted data files are common enough to warrant worrying about it.

    Uh oh, I've heard that tone before from a modder. See you next year!

    Edit: Here's one more bug to put under your hat for after school: [spoiler:4af1e436c0]When I use the speech options as "Death Hand" in the Raider camp, Garl agrees to release Tandi and escort us out. But then they immediately open fire.[/spoiler:4af1e436c0]

    Question.

    If I want to use my own PRO files for weapon stats, will it work?

    As far as I can tell, the item PRO files that come with the mod have the same file size as those I manually extract from the DAT file.

    However, I just want to be sure before I inadvertently ruin some cosmic balance :P

    I believe that should work out, you'll want to start a new game though. Issues are possible, just keep that in mind.

    Are you using the files from Revisited I assume?

    No, I'm using files I modified from the vanilla game using F2wedit
