    Hi guys

    I need to remove timelimit from Fallout 1.

    I know that there is a timelimit in Fallout 1 and Fallout 2 (13 years).

    Sfall removes timelimit from Fallout 2 but is there any way to remove timelimit from Fallout 1?

    Sfalls readme says:

    Maybe it is possible to reset time store file somehow, so I can play infinity?

    Is it possible to make Sfall running at Fallout 1? Or maybe Timeslip will realease FO1 version of Sfall?

    Maybe you know any way to hack time in FO1?

    Please help me with this.

    Cheers

    No, it's not.

    It changes 500 day limit into 13 years.

    hakimio that's a great tip. Do you think it will work if I reset year in the save.dat?

    Just don't mistakenly change the time savegame was created instead of "game ticks" and, imho, everything should be ok.
    Code:
    The date in the game. This field stores the time – the number of seconds since 25.07.2241 0:00:00 multiplied by 10 (the number of 'ticks'). [Fallout 1 starts at 5.12.2161]

    Graphical glitches are unlikely, but the project isn't done yet. Lots of things are still missing.

    Any hexeditor should do.

    From the menubar choose Address -> Goto -> Hexadecimal -> $6B

    Then just use some scientific calculator to convert hex value to dec.

    So for example:

    31104000 seconds=1 year

    31104000 multiple by 10 = 311040000

    http://img827.imageshack.us/img827/492/data3.jpg

    that wil set gametime 5.12.2162?

    Am I doing it right couse it gives ERROR while loading savegame?

    EDIT: 1 year is 31536000 secs :)

    Don't forget to convert decimal value to hexadecimal. Also you can upload your whole savegame (with all the *.SAV files) and I could take a look.

    BTW, google says 1 year = 31 556 926 seconds
