Description

A bugfix, rules compliance, and expanded content modification for Troika's 'The Temple of Elemental Evil.' CLICK 'READ MORE' FOR SYSTEM REQUIREMENTS, COMPATABILITY NOTES, AND INSTALLATION INSTRUCTIONS.


SYSTEM REQUIREMENTS

The Circle of Eight front end utility, TFE-X, requires Microsoft Net Framework version 2.0 or higher to run. Most modern systems already have this installed. To check if it's installed on your system, go to Control Panel > Add or Remove Programs and look for 'Microsoft .NET Framework 2.0.' Versions 2.0 and above are compatable.

COMPATABILITY NOTES

The Circle of Eight Modpack is compatable with all retail versions of ToEE, including the boxed, jewel case, and Good Old Games download versions.

INSTALLATION INSTRUCTIONS

STEP 1: INSTALL ATARI PATCH 1

If your version of ToEE is not pre-patched, install Atari Patch 1. It is available here: Sorcerers.net

STEP 2: INSTALL ATARI PATCH 2

If your version of ToEE is not pre-patched, install Atari Patch 2. It is available here: Sorcerers.net

STEP 3: DO NOT INSTALL ATARI PATCH 3

There is no need to install Atari Patch 3. The only additional feature Atari Patch 3 contains is a fix for the infamous DirectX 9.0c looting bug, but this particular issue is also fixed by the Circle of Eight Modpack. If you have installed patch 3 already or if your game comes pre-patched with Atari Patch 3, don't worry. It doesn't matter.

STEP 4: INSTALL THE CIRCLE OF EIGHT MODPACK

Double click the Circle of Eight Modpack Setup utility to begin installation. When prompted to choose an installation location, make sure to select the location where your game is installed. The default location is C:/Program Files/Atari/Temple of Elemental Evil, and most boxed and jewel case games will have been installed to this location by default. The Good Old Games version of ToEE will have been installed to C:/Program Files/GOG.com/Temple of Elemental Evil by default. If you are using the Good Old Games version of the game, you must manually select this directory. If you have installed ToEE to a custom location, regardless of which version of the game you are using, you must manually select that directory to install the Circle of Eight modpack to.

Follow all on-screen promps. After the modpack has been deployed, the Circle of Eight front end utility, TFE-X, will automatically launch.

If this is a new installation, TFE-X will perform the necessary operations to convert your installation for use with the Circle of Eight Modpack. Be patient; this can take some time. When TFE-X is finished, it will report the status to you in a popup window. IF YOU HAVEN'T SEEN THIS POPUP NOTIFICATION WINDOW, THE CONVERSION IS NOT COMPLETE. DO NOT CTRL-ALT-DEL OUT OF THE TFE-X APPLICATION. WAIT FOR THE POPUP WINDOW. Next, select the Circle of Eight Modpack from the TFE-X menu and click 'activate.' This can also take some time. WAIT FOR THE POPUP WINDOW TO TELL YOU THAT THE MODULE ACTIVATION IS COMPLETE. DO NOT CTRL-ALT-DEL OUT OF THE TFE-X APPLICATION. After the module has been activated, you may customize various options through TFE-X and launch the game.

If this is an existing installation to which you are simply adding the Circle of Eight Modpack, simply select the Circle of Eight Modpack from the TFE-X menu and click 'activate.' This can also take some time. WAIT FOR THE POPUP WINDOW TO TELL YOU THAT THE MODULE ACTIVATION IS COMPLETE. DO NOT CTRL-ALT-DEL OUT OF THE TFE-X APPLICATION. After the module has been activated, you may customize various options through TFE-X and launch the game.

We hope you enjoy the Circle of Eight Modpack for ToEE!

Somewhere that old game still lies around as a dust-catcher. Co8, you made great efforts. Thanks!

ToEE Co8 Mod 7.0.0 NC. Thanks for all the improvements!Personally I had lots of crashes in or due the modified temple.dll. Some less, after I manually meddled with my config file. I may ready a copy of it, in case others have such, too.Clayfish, Crayfish and Pestering Lobsters: Did nobody find a replacement and a generic wa, to make more variety of random encounters? It becomes quite boring early in the game already, my opinion.Monk: Weapon Focus DOES NOT give Kama, Nunchaku or Siangham!!! Thereby one can only use Flurry of Blows with Quarterstaff or wait until one finds the Monk-Shop in Nulb! Your chests have no monk-weapons either. Is it difficult, to make Nunchaku or Sai work with Flurry of Blows feat?Ranger: It seems you handled the Endurance-Feat bug/crash? Ranger around level 3-5 crashed on level-up in base version, patch 2 and 3.X-Frontend: Works fine now and the Xrepair is a nice addition.Your logical first-aid restored quite some atmosphere!-Lareth marshaling his troops now makes much more sense! Until Pishella does her Charm Person so they kill each other anyway. ;-)-The Dark Elven Lady, Smigmal Redhand, in the Temple under the Tower is now accompanied by two very cute assassins. Great idea!
Please note, that I did just mention Mindflayers as Evil Player Race. I missed them.
Somebody did a complete conversion, Keep of the Borderlands. Did it bring any new insights for Modders?
Mission-Clarity: Rannos DAvl sends the Chaotic Evil to Nulb, but whom to talk to and why isn't it in the log??? Just a note, playing evil is nearly unsupported&futile.
