Hi AC, it's been a long time since anyone posted here and I hope someone is still watching. I really love this mod, I have actually been saving it and now all is OK but I keep getting a crash at the SA-23 Emergency Exit. Can't get in. Can someone help. I hope I'm not calling to the wind....

Just curious, who created the piece of music for the Admin office, otherwise called "Explore_ADM" within the files.

I'm asking because it's a fantastic track, really well composed too!

Many thanks Andromeda Crescent for the awesome mod and for using my video in the description page. I've done a large part of Secrets from the past, but i've yet to finish it. I have so much going on right now but when i get the opportunity I'll most likely finish part 1 and part 2 walkthroughs. And again, thanks.

Dear FireLady,

I can't seem to get to aim with the EMP Rifle.
Is it a special mod or did my download mess up and i'm missing a file?

...no iron sights for the EMP weapon, sorry and yes, it is a special weapon made exclusively for this series (included in main file). It is a lot like a shotgun though, just shoot, the effect will affect a group of enemies within a certain radius, just don't use it up close as it will hurt you too.

Firelady was the original author of this wonderful series, but sadly, she passed away in 2010 from injuries sustained in an auto accident. AndromedaCrescent was her level designer and co-author and is working diligently on completing the story she set out to tell, so stay tuned, and don't forget to check out the other chapters of this wonderful story.

First of all, my condolences.. I had absolutely no idea. But AC is doing an awesome job with this mod! this saga is, imo, one of the best quest mods for fallout 3

And going back to the EMP rifle, is there a diff mod to fix the scope sight of this rifle? If not then i'll just keep hipfiring that b*tch!

Keep up the awesome mods AC! cant wait for part 4!

Let me know if it solved your problem

Reply Good karma+1 vote

It did solve the problem, well, on medium or higher settings anyway.
But u already said that and there is a lot of stuff not working on low settings (like nuka cola quantum not being purple OR glowing), so it makes sense.
But yea the problem is fixed thanks!

Hi Jeffol

I will look into your problem, maybe because the EMP scope use HiRes texture? Don't know, try to max your textures details.
