    Already played it once through with the RP. Now I'm doing a playthrough with the MegaMod.


    http://falloutmods.wikia.com/wiki/MIB88_Megamod

    Which is pretty fun. New locations, a couple new factions, new game-play ideas, etc. It even makes your useless 'wife' into a full-fledged companion, who levels and is further developed.

    "Wow, Fallout 2 Restoration Patch!"
    "I'm Kaga!! Everytime you start a new game you have to sit through a poorly written monologue!"
    "Uninstall."

    Yeah, I'm pretty sure it was not lack of time which resulted in dropping Kaga but the simple fact he sucked.

    The final battle with him is anti-climactic as hell if you've gained even a small measure of personal power. Supposedly once you've damaged him enough you can try talking him down if you'd gone with the diplomatic approach in previous encounters.



    I never got the chance, because he melted after the first shot. Seriously, he ranted and raved about how this would be the final, glorious battle...

    ...and then I just turned him to goo and walked away.

    Kaga iirc is the guy who blocks the way to the village on the entrace to the Temple of the Chosen Ones right when you start F2RP. I believe in older versions he would have some dialog showing how you were using the right version.

    However, in the latest version there is a rock on the ground behind him that, when examined, gives you feedback on whether or not everything is installed properly.

    As a final remark, Killap's F2RP is ANCIENT news.

    A failed Chosen One. Your predecessor, who doesnt amount to the challenges of real world.

    You dont think you are the only Chosen, do you?

    Old news, but a new version is right around the corner. New stuff added, and Kaga should be more polished as well.

    Not that many. There are more internet meme references than you can chew, though.

    Out of ALL the things this mod restores, you quit just because of that?

    It was better written than anything in Fallout 3.

    Just as an aside.

    The Silent Storm engine would make an excellent modern platform for a fallout 1 & 2 remake.

    Not sure how many of you have played Hammer & Sickle, but i prefer it to SS in that its way more like an old-school RPG.

    I played through the game once with the RP mod, but it'll take a gun to my head before I'm even going to consider doing it again. I found the "new" stuff to be both ridiculous and embarassing, and I'm not at all surprised that they ended up on the cutting floor. I'll admit that some of the things the mod puts back into the game is pretty cool, but the bad far outweighs the good.

    And Fallout 3 is much better than Fallout 2 RP. Feel free to quote me on that.

    Not holding my breath here.

    Yeah, well, F2RP is kinda lame, since it mostly "restores" not the cut content, but the content that was never made in the first place, only considered. So this is basically just a huge mod that represents killap's "vision" of the game, not what the developers would have made if they had the time.
