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!

The standard version of The Circle of Eight Modpack tries to remain faithful to the original computer game The Temple of Elemental Evil (made by Troika). The NC (which is an acronym for "New Content") version of The Circle of Eight Modpack includes a lot of new maps to explore (including Welkwood Bog, Hickory Branch, and Verbobonc) and a lot of new quests to go on, new NPCs to meet, and new monsters to vanquish. I highly recommend the NC version of The Circle of Eight Modpack! To access the new content in the game, all you have to do is talk to Brother Smyth (the blacksmith in Hommlet) and tell him that you are looking for something different (you keep doing this for each new map or the next stage of the new content in the game).

AVG warned me about a trojan horse in this file when I ran it the second time.

That's a false positive. Just add the file to your AVG exceptions list.

I use AVG also and all I did was when I install a game on Win7 I install it to a folder I created in the C drive called Games, then I can go to Anti-virus manage exceptions on the AVG User Interface and choose path instead of file and then choose the folder I created called Games as the path and everything in it will be completely ignored

i tried downloading 7.1.0_NC using Desura, but the link is broken. How do you suggest I download it now?

OK. disregard previous question as I have Desura working. I have downloaded Desura, which I presume is the TFE-X. Per the troubleshooting tips, I have right-clicked on the Desura icon on my desktop and selected "run as administrator". After clicking "yes" to allow this, Desura launches automatically. The status of 7.1.0_NC is "ready". when I double click on it, I still get the error same error message. What am I doing wrong? :(

Unfortunately I don't really know what the Desura installer does, as they offer that independantly. If you're having trouble, I would download from the regular ModDB link and install per our instructions.

Despite downloading this exactly as specified and making an exception in avg this still has not worked. I just get the message that TFE-Z is already running. I'd almost believe this was a trojan if official forum didn't link to it. If you know a fix please let me know
