Just as I thought I was on a roll understanding DE's Diablo II reference.
too bad, hope Drog is alright.
what's with my name? I usually use this one... I like it. I say it while patting my white cat, too!
Agree. It is one of the amazing games for the c64. Even though the different colored password is hard to beat as ever. I'm still playing it in my emulator on the PC, and I must say that it is a bit less difficult to see those colors now. Before that I had to do with an original c64 with a black and white monitor. But nevertheless, I was totally addicted to it. Yes. Good old times.
How far did you make it? I had only the uppermost part ready.
Wemeet: Well. I assume that Drog is still healthy. Oh. A white cat. Mmm...sounds familiar.
Great work with all the fixes and stuff
but I have a few questions:
how can I get the max out of Arcanum
(i know theres the UAP091225, a highres mod, a hq map mod, hq music mod)
Is there anything else Im missing?
In what order should I install it all for it to work properly?
Asking for a 1installation has-it-all mod is probably too much...
But please get the lowattacks to work, I want to use the extra animation, but if i understand this correctly, it will make combat in hightech armor a problem for me?
thnx for everything and again: great stuff
also, another bit confuses me,
the UAP extra animations pack is cryptons beta restoration pack, but fixed
does it only contain the animations from the beta restoration pack and not the sounds?
It's quite self explanatory really, ExtraAnimationsUAP.exe only contains the Extra Animations.
The sounds are in the ArcanumBeta v0.1 pack which you will need to download separately from http://arcanum.game-alive.com/category/downloads/
Drog... don't let Arcanum defeat you like that :hidepc:
I've just registered to tell you that I have found a way to deal with this problem.
Firstly, thanks Drog Alt and Crypton for bring these to us
And here's the link
just download, extract then copy the criter folder to data/art.
you may need to delete the missing.dat file here so the game could recheck the data. You can delete it for sure as the game would recreate it.
Seem that the game read directly from this folder, because when I try creating dat file, it won't work. So it may work without extra animation pack, I'm nnot sure.
Please don't expect any thing new, I just duplicatethe normal attack files.
Please inform me if you find any problems, or you could fix it yourself and post a proper fix here.
Lastly, I don't have much chance to test (don't know how to spawn item). All I could say is I'm able to kill Dog while wearing the machined plate robbed from the dwarf blacksmith in Caladon. Thanks.
EDIT: update download link
Some quick testing suggests your fix indeed takes care of the problem. Nice job, dukfinx.
Glad that it also work for you.
Ah Drog, if I were to use a quote as my signature, I'd definitely quote you.
