    Hey there..

    Although I haven't ever decided to go Lucas's way, since i always picked Koogan, although the quest item for both is always the same. it resides behind a large radioactive goo pile in a container in one of the rooms left of Lucas, on the same map. Btw. Koogan wants the device as well, and probably wants to trade it to the same people (according to the later plot).

    EDIT:

    as for translation try to download a more recent version 1.3 or so from the radmurav team either from dropbox or from github, at least till now radmurav team recommends the dropbox verson.

    Ok, I'll try the newer version and report back. Also, I believe I already gave Lucas the item and he disappeared. Now I'm sort of clueless on what I need to do. I may need to reload an older save and see if I missed something. Thanks for the help!

    Well Garage city is just a pit stop, your main goal there is to find out what happened to folks from your village, you can do this in several ways, the quests in Garage are a nice addition but are not nessecary to finish

    I just started the game and found a rifle that is normally considered small weapons in fallout 2. One-handed pistols/single-handed rifles are showing me 95% accuracy when this rifle is only 36-44. Are the rifles in this modification considered big guns?

    I've entered the Dayglow DLC over the last couple days and i'm trying to use the holodisk containing codes to deal with the robots on the bridge. Trouble is teh radio station antenna is broken and can't be repaired. I befriended a super mutant near the dam, but for some reason while i'm able to point out the radio station in the dialog there's no way to ask him to help with the antenna. Any advice?

    Is there any WORKING character editor like Falche to this mod?

    truth is Falche will never work with *anything* that uses sfall..

    Just start up and configure Vad's save editor. try to ask around for an earlier version without false positive antivirus triggers in it, if you still haven't got one.

    that stuff is universal for all fallout1/2 and their mods (F12se.exe)
    best regards and good luck

    Ok, so I've run into another issue with the translation. All of the dayglow dialog, item descriptions, etc are in Russian. I'm starting to wonder if installed the English files incorrectly. Was I supposed to remove any files from the original RuTracker download, and the files were supposed to be placed in the root directory right?

    Just to clarify, I got the files from github. It was the 1.3 version.

    I haven't had the time to reach the dayglow yet. From what i recall 1.3 is the current version of the translation. The RadMuravTeam translation seemed to have ceased at some point. I have no idea how the stuff from the dayglow is handled. although if You're uncertain your translation installation is correct, i propose to download the dropbox version, unpack it, and copy paste that inside game foler, there are certain files that need to go into *mods* folder, instead of the root game folder, but everything is sorted correctly in the dropbox version. At least my install is pretty much ok.

    Ok, I'll go through my directory and make sure. By the way, when a new version of the translation is released, will my current save be usable or will I have to make a new character?

    I wouldn't worry about savegame compatibility, as translated game text, has nothing to do with save files.
    I would worry however that RadMuravTeam, hasn't made any upates to their project for quite some time now, like two or more weeks without a single update since the last time i checked, might be the project got abandoned.

    Gentlemen I have a problem with the Dayglow add-on, and actually one mission. I've tried many ways but apparently I don't know how to deal with it hence this post.
    I'm having a problem with the mission about starting the power plant. It keeps showing me that there is a short circuit/circuit and therefore I am not able to start the second turbine - you have to turn the valve, I did it but it still shows "need a lot of force". When I use explosives still this message occurs.
    How do I solve this? We don't happen to have some guide on the forum regarding this add-on?

    I've been looking at this for a while as I'm itching to give Sonora a try, but I'm curious if I should hold out for an upcoming update if anything is in the works, or if the latest upload on the dropbox is in a good enough state to experience most of the game.

    I wanted to ask here before getting files sorted so, what is the overall quality people are feeling from this translation so far?

    That's what I'm wondering as well? Will there be another update for the English translation?

    FWIW: I’m nearing the end phase of the game and in my opinion the translation is good enough.

    During the first half of the game it’s better than Nevada, but it seems to drop off in the second half or near the end.
    (I’m not a native English speaker)

    I seem to have run into a bug:

    after finishing inferno I want to escort Diana to Casa Nueva, but when I arrive there she's no longer with me.
    I also have Carrington and paladin Barkley in my group, but only Carrington shows up with me after I leave inferno and enter anywhere on the world map. be it the dessert or any game location, I seem to lose Diana and Barkley.

    I think it may have got something to do with this: after finishing Inferno, I told Carrington, Diana and Barkley to wait at the inferno exit map, so I could first do the Dayglow. after finishing Dayglow and traveling back to inferno, my team of 3 is still there, but then, after telling them to come with me and traveling in the world map Diana and Barkley have vanished... only Carrington remains.

    could it have something to do with having traveled to dayglow and back?

    thanks for any advice on how to possibly fix this...

    I wanted to try the translation, but I've noticed that the extended version is sonora 1.11, not the latest 1.2.
    Is there a way to update the mod to the latest version without breaking anything?

    Just started playing and I can report a potential error in the first dialog with the grand mother.
    She says "find Jose there. He will tell me more".
    I'm guessing she should be saying "tell YOU more"?
