Singleplayer campaign aiming to enhance Tactics experience with RPG elements. Defend the free city state of Victoria against a crusade launched by fanatics of the New Church. Play as lone wolf or with up to three companions, chosen from six. Each has unique interactions with the environments, some may help you with quests. Speaking of which, most have multiple solutions. Non-combat skills matter, charisma matters, no more dump stats. Reworked combat: All firearms and blades inflict bleeding, making prolonged fights deadly. Amount of drugs was drastically reduced. Food items were enhanced, now they give short stat bonuses. You can choose from fewer weapons, but each has its role.

Hi Reinar,

I cannot seem to use BOSChe and BOSEdit for my save files. I am currently trying your mod.

Thank you for the hard work mate!

Hi,
I don't have any experience with those two. I just tried BOS-Edit and I wasn't able to load a save from either of my mods. I tried loading a save from original campaign and it didn't work for saves in world map. The error says "could not find current sector file".
My bet is it looks for the files in the core folder and since the mods are in a different folder, it can't reach them. After all, it does list the current location - you are not in one when on the world map screen.

No idea what's wrong with Bosche, my bug solving intuition doesn't tell me anything.

Yeah, looks like it, although I have no idea how is that even possible.

The directory user/$$current$$ is filled with save data when you load a game. If you have some older save, you can load that, copy the file somewhere else, then load your current save and move that file back there. Then save again. But it will duplicate your characters. It will be like time travel, your current squad will meet the old squad in the state they've been - position, items, experience. You could probably also start a new game and copy the mission file from that, then kill the "new" PC.

I have no idea what other consequences can this "fix" have and I'd rather load the old save, but if it's just too old (or if it doesn't even exist), this may be less painful.

Strange, I follow the readme but when I use the shortcut for FT Improver.exe I get "Cannot create BOS process!".

Just to make sure...the FT Improver needs to be installed in the same folder as Fallout Tactics or in a separate one? Because the readme implies that it needs to be inside the Fallout Tactics folder. Unless it only needs to be the shortcut of the FT Improver in the Fallout Tactics game.

I'm sorry if its a noob question as I never used FT Improver before...

FT Improver has to be installed in the Fallout Tactics folder, yes. The shortcut can by anywhere.

Try this:
1) Is your FT patched to 1.27?
2) Open Improver_data/Improver.cfg in notepad and check if there's 1, not 0: {improver.useCurrentDir} = {1}

Also (slightly) possible reasons I found on the web:
1) Path of main FT directory obtained from Windows registry points to incorrect directory
2) Main FT directory does not contain BOS.exe

Hope one of these helps.

For some reason I cannot activate the dialogue options in the dialogue trees. I click on an NPC, the dialogue activates but not matter how much I click on the dialogue option it cannot be used. I can then only use the "done" option to exit dialogue. No problems with activating/using anything else like in the in game menus.

I tried both clicking on the dialogue and on the image box on the left of said dialogue.

Any idea on what I should do?

Caine59 You can't click the dialogue options, FT engine doesn't allow that. If you want to use that line, check what stance image there is, then move your main character into that stance (crouched most often), then click the NPC again. It's mentioned in the ingame tutorial holodisc you loot from the sheriff at the beginning.

It does not seem to work either.

Whether I stand, crouch or lie on the ground I still get the questions with no answer coming regarding either of those questions.

Talking to NPC, click "done" to exit talk, crouch to see the crouching option, click on the NPC...and there is no different reaction.

A bug or I missed something?

EDIT: I tried starting a new game and used the tutorial holodisc right away and it seem like everything works now. Strangely when I tried different stances after talking to a couple of NPCs and THEN using the holodisc to get the tutorial resume I got nothing from the stances.

The holodisc probably isn't the culprit. There's a bug that messes with the triggers when you load a game. The workaround is to leave the map and enter again. I found the bug 3 days before release and there's no way to fix it, it's because of how the engine works. Had I known that at least a year before, I'd probably change (dumb down) the mod significantly by scrapping all those RPG features.

That makes sense as I exited the game after starting it (saving beforehand) and when I decided to continue it (after seeing no more issues with starting the mod) I suddenly noticed those problems with dialogue.

Still...I'm nevertheless glad for the RPG features and would be sad to see them go. Its less irritating when one knows the cause and how to fix it. Guess I should tone it down with reloading all the time.

Good afternoon. I have questions not about fashion but to you as an experienced mod creator: 1) How to make the music you need play in the mission (or as an option in a certain zone on the level)? 2) How to get AI bots to use the equipment that is in the game (i.e. the equipment itself: jeep, tank, etc. you can add it to the mission, but only the player uses it) How can you teach or force the trigger (script) bots of the enemy to sit in the technique and attack the player with it?

Hi doom52014 1) You need to create a sound file (look at example file located in Fallout Tactics/core/editor/ambientExample) and then import it in the editor (Import Sound File). You can also use my maps as examples for zone sounds (Victoria map uses a few of them).
2) Bots can't use vehicles. In CotA 2 campaign I made the AI vehicles as normal actors and moved them by trigger over several points to make it smooth. This was in first mission and in the bunker. In last mission I wanted a tank, so again I made an entity with tank bottom and on top of that a classic popping turret enemy.

Thanks Reinar) The fact is that the actors of the machine I have in fashion is but I can not make an actor tank (more precisely, it is possible to make it stationary by attaching a turret tower to it, but I would like the tank to be mobile like the actors ' cars and could attack the player...

doom52014 The only way to do that is to create a character sprite that looks like a tank. Or use some robot, there are some already done, for example this one: Nma-fallout.com

I ask for your help in one more question: There are sprites of new armor, when I register them in the tab Image\ sprites/armor/WBOS Armor. spr armor both on the ground and in the inventory is displayed normally. But when the character puts it on, nothing happens., i.e. visually it does not change.. How to register it in "Armor Type"? I.e. there are only suggested types of armor from the standard fallout, this one is not available for selection, and I need this armor but I do not want to remove or replace the old ones..

doom52014 You need to create an entry in FT Improver's Improver_data (ArmourTypes I think). Then you need a character sprite associated with that armour type (located here: sprites/character/). For example Ghoul armour uses GhoulMale.spr and GhoulFemale.spr. I guess you're adding new power armor. That means the new armour type is genderless (you need to set this in the armour type definition). You will need just WBOS.spr (no male/female version). In Crusade, I made the ghoul armour look like power armour to be used by one of the companions and then created new ghoul armour type for NPCs (wearable by anyone).

Thank you again
Reinar. Managed to figure out what the problem is. In the mod where I wanted to add new armor, there is simply no folder: IMPROVER_DATA. Instead, "ammotypes" was located at: Launcher\Data in a folder outside the mod. I added 3 new types of armor to it and they began to appear in the game normally) There are still a lot of questions mainly about creating missions and implementing them in the company. But I guess if I write them here I'll take up the entire tape))

Yeah, this isn't the right place. Why don't you try some russian Fallout forum? I bet there are still some active FT modders that could help you with the basics.

Adding new armour type in FT Improver or even working with sound files is intermediate stuff a lot of people don't know about. The basic stuff about creating a map, maybe even how to stick more maps into a campaign is something different.
Or you can try to learn it by reverse engineering Crusade campaign. Almost all of the campaigning stuff is done in the tables/Crusade.txt file, the rest in campaign editor, but that's the easy stuff. I bet you could do it yourself.

Sad... But thanks for the clarification) I need a tank or an armored personnel carrier with a tank turret... By the way, I saw this robot in your fashion " Children of the Apocalypse 2"

I tried, tried and tried failing all the time...till I changed my Fallout Tactics version. My GOG version had not "activated" the FT Improver (it did not detect the BOS.exe) at all while the CD version of Fallout Tactics did the trick.
