    That is fucked. Seriously Sduibek? Also, what's up with that new merchant in Shady Sands? That's not optional?

    I think he's the Barterman cut from the game.

    Would be nice if the restored content and other additions were completely optional. I've tried different ways of installing the mod, but there doesn't seem to be a way to disable some things that were never included in the original. For instance, the Skilled Trait now gives bonuses from both Fallout and Fallout 2, even if you install the Purist option. It even tells you that in the new in-game descriptions. What's funny is that the Custom install allows you to revert to the original game description that never mentioned any bonuses other than to your starting skills and you still get 5 extra Skill Points at each level up, just like in Fallout 2.

    I realized Fallout is approaching on my chronological play list, and it made me wonder...Are there any particular books or movies the designers have specified as definite influences on the game?

    Plenty. Watch the video and he'll talk about a lot of them. Or just watch from minute 5 to minute 12 and he'll talk about videogames, books and movies.

    Anyone created a Cleve character in Fallout? If so what skills did you choose?

    So Mentats...they only give a temporary boost, right? And then the character gets addicted to them?

    No, they give a temp boost and your character has a chance to get addicted to them. IIRC, you get the 'addicted' message immediately after using them if you failed the check. It takes 2 weeks in game time to undo the addiction i think.

    Sounds like good bartering items, then.

    Yes, using the TeamX patched instead of Fixt is closer to the vanilla experience, and in my experience so far less buggy.

    Do you know what the NPC Mod fix does? It's just one file: dog2.int.

    I think the FRP is included in Fixt, and is what messes things up.

    Already included in the TeamX 1.2 patch.

    Yes, sfall or Engine Tweaks is not needed if you have the High Res Patch installed.

    I went with these mods, in order of installing.

    Team X 1.2
    Team X 1.2.1
    Team X 1.3.5
    Fallout NPC Mod
    Fallout High Resolution Patch 4.1.8. For some reason I didn't download the GOG versions (in which the patch is included) when they were free, but I have an old Fallout Collection CD.

    Has worked very well so far, and I've completed Junktown with only one minor bug.

    According to Google Translate, fixes an issue with Dogmeat if you reach LA before meeting him in Junktown.

    Sorry to necro this, but someone asked for help on patches on another forum, and after doing some research I thought I'd share it here:

    From what I've read, apparently you are not mean to use 1.2.1 alongside 1.2.

    However, a couple of posts later he posted:

    So what is it? :? "It is not necessary to install it" is not the same as "you must not install it". From what I gather, 1.2.1 (being a Release Candidate) is not as fully tested as 1.2, so that's why he recommends US players to use 1.2 instead of 1.2.1.

    Oh, and I'm stealing your idea for a Cleve build. I'm gonna make him on Arcanum though, suggestions welcomed.

    Hmm...I'm pretty sure I researched this thouroughly before installing.
    Anyway, I can't remember any problems during my playthrough.

    The definitive Fallout 1 Patch Guide.

    First, install Fallout 1. No need to add any patches or fixes other than the ones below - 1.2.1 adds in children if they're missing from your game, and includes all the stuff from the official patches.

    You can download all of the above in a single zip, here.

    No children to shoot at, though.

    Sorry for being retarded, but how do I find the 7-digit crc32? When I check the exe crc32 I get 8 digits. If I remove the first/last digit the game still crashes.

    I didn't write myself good enough notes for this, but use this updated version 1.7.20 of sfall1 which has more QoL features and automatically hooks into the .exe without the need for inputting CRCs.

    I've also updated the post you quoted with a new version of the files that includes 1.7.20 and modified the instructions to remove the CRC step.
