The Revival SP modification is dubbed by the community as the "fun" patch. Enhancements to the game include increased stash size, balanced difficulty, access to previously locked items (pets, dye kits, retrainers), effectiveness of luck and mob density increases are some of the most notable changes. The custom launcher we have developed provides a framework for other modders to create and distribute their own modifications. With this release, we consider our work done on the SP modification complete and we focus our attention on our primary Hellgate: London development TBA. We think you will be happy with what the modification offers to enhance the games limited content & playability. Thanks to Flagship Studios for the great game & to the Revival team & community at www.hellgateaus.net

Basic Starting a mod.
Install Hellgate London, I suggest you install the game to the default location of "C:\Program File\Flagship Studios\Hellgate London" You do not have to install to this location; you can install the game anywhere you like. This just makes it easier for me to reference where you are installing to when you need help.
. After installing, grab the 1.2 SP.Patch. Run and Install it.
Mirrors: Hellgate London 1.2 SP Patch
. Once the original Hellgate 1.2 SP patch is installed run the game. That's right run Hellgate and skip the intro to the main menu, Create a new Char and load into the game, run around Russel Square a bit and kill and few Zombies, then Exit the game. DO NOT SKIP THIS STEP!
. Now download the Revival Patch/Installer/Launcher Create a folder on your C:\ drive called "Revival", Unpack the files to that folder. Remember where this folder is so you can easily find it. Where ever you create this folder and put the installer.exe file into it remember to be sure there are no special characters in the path name.(Spaces, Commas, Periods, Slashes) It's best to put it right on the C Drive in it's own folder.
. You have allready downloaded the Revival 1.2.1 Patch and the Optional Package that includes Normal/Elite mode, Superior Quests, and Zomper model. Do not unzip these files. Still both of these files in the same Revival folder you put the installer/launcher in.
. Run the "install.exe" file in the Revival directory. You will be prompted with a message that says the launcher is not currently running from the Hellgate path would you like to install to that directory, Click YES. It will now copy the needed files to the directory.
. You will now see the Revival launcher/installer on the screen playing it's kick ass music. Click on Options and goto Program settings. In the program settings window that comes up click the tick box that says Enable Expert Mode then I would also advice you to click the "force DX9" bubble, (there have been problems with DX10 and single player), now click OK. Now click "Install Mod Package" It will check your files to be sure they are patched with the clean 1.2 SP hellgate patch, If your files are correct you will get a message saying Hellgate Looks "Good to Go". Press the Next Button.
. Click SELECT PACKAGE and browse to the Revival folder on your C:\ Drive. Choose the "revival_1_2_1.mod.zip" file first. Press the next button after selecting.
. Be sure the Revival SP modification is checked off to the left side you will see a large green check mark. Once checked off click next and the installation will begin. When finished you will get a message box that says installed successfully.
. With the Revival launcher/Installer still open click "Install mod package" again it will check your files and assure you that are good to go. Click next once again. Click select package and this time choose the "optional_1_2_0.mod.zip". Click next. Check off elite for normal mode and superior quests. I would advise to also check off the Zomper option also, its a cool looking skin that Tirex implemented for zombies. Click next and the install will start. You will once again get a message the mod has installed successfully.
Now click Unleash Hell! and enjoy your newly modded Hellgate Fun. *,o)
