    Last Hope mod v1.082

    Few noticeable changes were made since 1.06:
    1.elevators function a bit different now (no more button panel FRM), instead a dialog window will pop up and ask for destination :scratch:
    2.maps are optimized for "hi-res" (higher than 640x480, tested on 800x600 and now optimized for 1280x720 as well
    3.game difficulty settings now affects prices and nps's health points

    Update: 1.078 is available in download section, old save game files (older than 1.076), could cause a problem if you try it with newer version installed 1.07X.
    Update: 1.083, a "humongous" amount of work is currently ongoing to increase mod stability and add other suggested changes/content. Please be patient, some of the reported issues may have been fixed or currently being worked on. Feel free to post your mod related questions or suggestions and be sure to search this,a bit longer, topic for answers.

    Important: Some of the maps were updated recently for the purpose of adding more content and fixing errors. These changes are available in version 1.079. Saving before entering new areas may be a good strategy in order to avoid any frustration caused by unexpected game crashes as game restart often fixes map loading errors.

    Mod install guide: (updated with v1.077)
    Please follow these steps for installation of this mod ONLY. Which means this mod should NOT be used with any other
    item, location, weapons mod. Any mod mixing could lead to unexpected errors (do not even try to replace sfall and *.exe
    files from other mods, if you aren't 100% sure of what you're doing)
    1.Fresh install of Fallout2 US version is recommended, i did not test this mod with any other non English version.
    2.Installation of High-Res mod is recommended, it has been tested and works well with sfall files inside LH mod archive
    3.Get official Fallout2 1.02d patch, extract Fallout2.exe only (do NOT extract patch000.dat) into your game install folder
    as it can override mod files
    4.Run High-Res patch, wait for "patch successfully applied"(or similar) confirmation, only if you used non-patched .exe
    5.Extract files from this mod's archive to your game install dir. If you are a new player, you DO NOT have to install any older version for this to work..
    6.Inside DATA folder set PROTO and everything inside to "read only"
    7.Start game (having trouble? no need to panic, please check mod installation from step one or see section 4 inside LHinfo file - known problems)

    Now, i'm sure somebody read the post above. If you don't know what i'm talking about let me say first that this mod exist and it's located in download section. Of couse it's a demo 'cause we didn't made the "full" version. We started working on it however. I've heard that some problems occured after the mod installation when the first map is loaded then gray screen appears and interface bar is all black. This could happen because of the two reasons:
    1. Read the readme file :!:
    2. Make backup of fallout.cfg, .exe, Data folder and then replace them with those extracted. Fallout.cfg is VERY important because it tells .exe file where is data folder. Tip: the best backup is just to rename the files (if you don't know) :wink: .
    The mod works on my comp. with winXP cpu p4 , if anyone had any problem it's best to write it down here (post replay) if you wish. :)

    It has been some time since i last wrote something here. The big mod is doing fine for now. It will be worth as i can say. With its background story and lots of quests it's nothing like the demo which was more used for testing and stuff. Soon, there will be a site available for this mod. Some new art is added(like details, buttons, scenery...). When it'll be completed, it's hard to say but probably within this year because i have some great plans for it and i'm not going to waste them.
    I've done at least ten maps which have no relations with FO2 towns. So this is like extension for FO2, not addon. More is yet to come.

    Expect more responses when you have something to show. Give a nod to someone from the newsstaff when the site is up, if it has screenshots or anything to show it'll go up on the newsforum, which'll generate interest.

    Vey nice! it's an impressive mod considering you did it on your own. For those that missed the news:


    Version 1.0 is out. There are a couple of bugs I found:

    In the prison, the gaurd that opens the gate for you to leave, some times does not do it i.e. he goes through the motions and nothing happens.

    In the miners town, in the building you get to via the sewers (after clearing the door), the staircase does not work.

    I am just surprised that the mod is finished!
    I just downloaded it and I looked at files inside *.dat file and there are a huge ammount of files scripts, maps, dialogues!!!

    I started to play, the first map is nice, climate I like it.
    I will see what will be later ;)

    Well, unfortunatelly I found few bugs in first map
    - second closed gate has the same "science" desription as first.
    - during talking/combat with Guardian thre are some bugs I can't describe them, do not undesrtand dsecond time dialogue (he gives me something, then he wants to take it again from me, lol, I can not describe it clearly because my language is not good).
    - after combat, when the gate is opened, tehre is a bug, that the combat is initialized then disabled. Fortunatelly guardian is not attacking me. I can walk to exit.

    However, very very good work, and nice suprise Forgotten Knight :D

    First of all thanks for giving this mod a chance. It was a real challenge to get this done, considering all the stuff i've put in this mod. Ok, down to business:
    timed_event_p_proc in Guard's script gets stuck sometimes if critters current animation is busy, i can add animation check

    Ok, i'll correct this. Map errors... i don't like 'em at all. :mrgreen:


    Tested ingame, works on my pc

    First time you fight unarmed, second time he gives you a knife and takes it back when the combat is over. I'll check it again.

    Mod is pretty cool, but... it has some bugs.
    @Farmers Community there is problem with quest about gecko pelts. Gecko hunter from bar doesn't want to talk with you.
    Cubik2k made patch fixing this problem.

    - That's true.

    And what about quest with hunting mantis @ Miners Town?
    I don't know where to find their nest. In the eastern part of town there is some cave, blocked by stones. I blow them up with explosives, and it works, but... If you go there, you jump into "sewer" under jail with radscorpions...

    Generally I like Last Hope, think it has great potencial. It's return to old school role playing I would say. So please, continue Your work, testing and fixing bugs. Thanks and respect for Your effort. Regards from Poland.

    The staircase doesn't lead anywhere, it's meant to be that way. I've used it as a scenery, nothing more, sorry :mrgreen:

    Fixed map exit grids. Added into v1.01

    Fixed in v1.01

    Huh, so I have an idea 8-) Maybe you should do a magic trick;) When player is pointing staircase with cursor, then on the left "window" information that stairs are crushed/broken should appear. It will solve this misunderstanding.

    Micronus the Bughunter.
    P.S. I'm gonna reporting bugs according to game progress.

    Edit: And what about Lost City, @ this location there is no way to get in. Is it bug or maybe there is way to get in, but I'm stupid;)?

    Will be v1.01 compatible with old saves?

    I'd like to report that the doors in noth/east sides are not visible and this is hard to find them during th game.

    EDIT 24.01.2009
    Possible bugs:

    - Miners Town - I entered to Cave for killing mantis, killed all of them on all levels and go to sheriff, asking him and there is not an option about mantis quest. In the PipBoy there is still unfinished quest.
    - Miners Town - Talking to Colin, probably second time, there is an option that I click onit but nothing happen
    Here is a screenshot from it:

    I just put some barrels to block the staircase, simple and effective.
    This way the player wouldn't spend too much time thinking about the staircase.

    Well, you can get in but you'll have to find another way.

    I've tested new map changes with the old saves and they seem to work, so far.
    It will work if you have not visited Miners town.

    Yep, this is a small error in dialogue script.

    Script error, fixed.

    Town label art, two years old :rip: , map.msg line few months old.

    Rather not. I tested Miners Town with Mantis Quest (never entered to Caves before) with old savegames, and this is not working. I started NEW game and can enter to Caves with mantis, but report some possible bug.
    See my edited post before yours. I edited it and report some possible bugs.

    The name of Farmers Community on worldmap is another then the name of blue button on the right list on worldmap (Farmers Town).

    I have a sugestion: please, make something with random encounters. Because of them, game is too easy. Hubologists are killing raiders/robbers etc., and you have plenty of good stuff to gather. Obviously, you can ignore it, but you know, it's my preciouss syndrome;)

    And please, maybe try to play LH one more time and do some betatesting. You've done great job (you're a hero and you must leave:D), but you know, it's annoying when some scipts don't work properly, and you must play from the beginning when you fix bugs in another version of mod...

    On the other hand we are in fact betatesters and it's surely easier for you to fix bugs, when they are targeted. Hmm, if I have more free time...

    Some encounters are easy, while others are harder... as you move south east across the worldmap, encounters get harder. You can even encounter fire geckos or mutated mole rats, those are tough! :) If more people suggest i should make harder encounters, i might do that :mrgreen:

    Don't worry, if you find any map errors, post them as soon as possible, exit that town/map and save your game.

    Forgotten Knight,
    your total conversion mod is incredible. I can't believe that you made it yourself only. I counted up about 74 quests in your dat file! Well done! :clap:

    Thanks! You know, i did it only because i spent a lot of time on this. And yet i had to remove some unfinished quests because it could have taken me another month or so to finish it. I couldn't wait that long and decided to save some precious time and said "Enough is enough!" :) . I hope you'll enjoy it... 'till the first crash to desktop :mrgreen:
    Latest mod version is in my signature link. Always check it first for new updates.

    I want to report the bug with Mantis Quest in Miners Town.
    The Quest could not be finished. I know why.

    There are mantises in both levels of caves. I looked at the map prva4b.map in mapper. Not all mantis critters have attached script 3proba60. The script should works for 29 killed critters. But not all critters has that script. Here is a bug! Second matter is, that sheriff MaKarty has not a dialogue lines for finished mantis quest. Maybe I am wrong but it seems that the quest is unfinished.
