    To coincide with RP 2.3.3, here's another update to the unofficial patch! Even more vanilla bugs were found, in addition to corrections to some bugs I introduced.

    I'm also releasing the source code for the unofficial patch.

    As before, DO NOT install this over the Restoration Project, as it already includes my latest patch. I just want to remind everyone about this, even though the patch installer will refuse to install if it detects that the Restoration Project is already there.


    Windows Installer Version (highly recommended): download
    Windows Manual Version (advanced users): download
    Mac Version: download

    Script sources: download

    1.02.31 change log:

    • Workbench in the back of the bathhouse is now reachable.
    • Maida no longer keeps asking about Torr after his death.
    • Joey now walks back to his gang after having sex with the player.
    • Having sex with Karl would not update your sex status. This has been corrected.
    • Bess can no longer be crippled when the player goes down the toilet. She never follows you down anyway, so why should she get hurt.
    • If you married Davin/Miria before telling Grisham about the outcome of guarding the brahmin, you would never be able to complete the quest. This has been addressed.
    • Grisham no longer appears back in Modoc after being killed at the Ghost farm.
    Broken Hills:
    • Ants or other creatures in the mine won't trigger finding the secret area with Chuck.
    New Reno:
    • It is possible for some dialogue paths with Renesco to prevent you from asking about mine purifier parts when you really shouldn't be prevented from asking him.
    • The fix for locking the door to New Reno Arms at night now actually works as intended.
    • Corrected instances where Tandi or Buster would refer to Roger Westin as Frank Westin.
    • Fix for Chosen One having the car but leaving it behind and arriving in NCR by joining a caravan.
    • Ratch no longer initially keeps saying he installed the blower in your car each time you enter the map.
    Vault City:
    • Tweaked the trigger for conversations with Vic and his daughter. They shouldn't happen with Vic outside the building.

    Well the Grisham/married status and the NCR caravan car bug (if it extends to the brahmin drive as I assume) are actually big enough to add somethign to a new playthrough.

    No offense to Per who created the thread but maybe the post of killap with the changelogs and download links should go to the 1st page (and it would be cool if the 1st page was always visible like it happens on Restoration thread) ;)

    Thank you very much Killap for all your work and i say the same to everyone who helped you.

    Btw, didi you choose your successor to keep the patches/restoration packs going?

    Since we're at page 69 anyway, maybe killap could start a new thread?

    Are you just stating that the fixes in this update are enough to make it worth doing another playthrough? Or were you saying something else?

    There is no successor. If you've been waiting for the super-duper-mega-final version, well just play the damn game with my patch/mod already. It's as done as it ever will be. If there will be more updates, then well, they'll come from me.

    Yeah, I suppose I could make a new unofficial patch thread, well specific to Fallout 2 that is.

    Just stating it for these two in particular. Last playthrough I got married (was playing with miria mod) before doing anythign else in modoc (or being equipped to) so I got cut off from a few quests, and if the car thing means I reach the brahmin drive destionation with a car it also changes things for me because I always do the brahmin drive.

    The others are all fine fixes and probably took work, but after a million playthroughs what I'm looking for is the few gameflow fixes. It's nobodies job to make them, and you did release the core files, so I guess I'll have to finaly get around to trying to make them myself. (Unless stuff has been done in this direction and I missed it in the documentation).

    Well, i know you said in the past that no further updates to RP would come from you so i asked that because maybe you had someone in mind to keep the project going, there wasnt any need to be fucking harsh with me because of it.

    I apologize if it seemed like I was directing anger towards you. That wasn't the intent. I've just gotten the impression over the years that there are people waiting and waiting for the best possible release, like they expect updating to continue forever. It's frustrating to me. I just wanted to make it clear that one should really not wait anymore and just play the RP already.

    Wanna thank you for all the hard work killap, I personally take every release as an opportunity to play the game again.

    Found a bug in UP script sources. The scripts.h header file is missing a #endif // SCRIPTS_H at the end.
    And condtion.h has the same trailing space problem as RP one.

    Some Enclave troopers enter in a standing freeze status when I kill them. I don't know if this is a "normal" unfixable bug or something.

    Must say I'm not playing with the UP as is. I've packed all the files in a custom patch000.dat and I'm not using sfall. Don't know if this has something to do with the bug, but the game seems to run flawlessly.

    I should mention that I haven't patched the master.dat file with those 3 .pro files. Talking about this, I can't find info about why this must be done, so it would be good if someone can clarify it.

    They are for fixing NPC issues, like Cassidy's AI packet.

    Nope. Go to the RP for that.

    When I try to put 1024x576 into the custom resolution field (hi-res patch config utility) and start Fallout, I get the error:

    I did add this resolution via the Intel HD Graphics control panel. Am I missing something?

    (I am trying this resolution because my native 1366x768 is too small.)

    Edit: Nevermind. Just needed a restart :)

    Be sure this resolution wont harm your monitor, as you can see in my signature i have intel too and i saw the warning that says we must be careful when choosing non-standard resolutions.

    Which are the existing unsolvable bugs?
