 Question Do YOU want an unofficial patch? Answers Yes, I'm desperate! Yeh, why not... I don't care either way. Could easily do without it... Decane, stop spamming the forums with your dumb ideas! NO!

     On the underscores non-problem

I never mentioned anything about any problem. The text simply looked a bit ugly and inconsistent in the version of the mod that Silveropwer sent to me. I cross referenced it with the version you have linked in this thread with the same result. If it's not supposed to look like this, I'm just letting you know that it does.

---END QUOTATION---

Victim, there's a couple of communication mix-ups here, and both of them are my fault.

1) I thought you were referring to what Decane had posted in your comment, not your updated mod. So I owe you an apology for a bad assumption.

2) I should have emphasized the existing comment in DiffReadMe.txt that the diffs did not include the gamedata\config\text\eng\ subdirectory, which has a couple of changed UI text files: ui_st_inventory.xml and ui_st_other.xml. ("Config_10004_to_ZRP_103.diff - The set of config subdirectory changes over patch 1.0004, only excluding the text\eng file differences.") So I owe silverpower an apology, because these UI files should have been included in the diff output.

But I stand by my statement that the text is already in the archive, in ui_st_other.xml. I just re-downloaded the archive and checked; the string ID for "ui_mm_save_level_game" is definitely in gamedata\config\text\eng\ui_st_other.xml. So if you use the patch as is, you'll see the proper text.

I used that file because I'd already changed it for a different reason, it had user interface stuff already in it and it seemed a reasonable place to put new stuff. But it is not set in stone. I'll go with the consensus here.

Re: Easy to add a level_changer:
>> Someone may want to hurt you if she reads that.

And I'll deserve it. I meant easy to add for debug purposes. It would be more of a bear to position and orient the level_changer box for good gameplay. But just knowing that there are going to be additional places to move between levels in Redux Extreme adds to the mod's allure.

Fatrap, the task_18.script calls the quest_items.main() function, plus it gives you a good psy helmet. You could add what you wanted there like the decoder, although Wolf's dialog is good, too. It is just such a timesaver to be able to go test out changes far upriver without having to swim the whole way.

You'll need the decoder if you don't give yourself the info_portion to get access to the hotel door...

For those who are interested, here's the hack for alife_l01_escape.ltx:

dest_level_name = L11_Pripyat
dest_graph_point = start_actor_01
silent_mode = 1

_________________
I stuck it at the front of the file. The "silent_mode = 1" is optional, but it keeps you from popping out at the north end of the Cordon if you say no.

Don't ship with this!

Firstly, there's no need at all for an apology, it takes two to miscommunicate. Ask anyone; I've mastered that art. Secondly, I hadn't realized that it does indeed work correctly if the 'default' mod is installed. That's the important thing. Therefore, you can simply ignore my previous ramblings.

@ Fatrap: I think I'll just make something up that attempts to match your desires. If I'm lucky, it'll also work for other resolutions but I'm not counting on it.

EDIT/ Are you sure you want a 40x40 grid? That makes for some quite colossal icons, not to mention that it forces extreme limitations on what can be done with the rest of the screen. Each persons inventory width is 400 pixels, that leaves a very measly 224 (minus 70-100 for frames and spacings) for the actual trade interface. May I suggest 35x35? I think that I can do 40x40x10 but it won't be pretty.

Well, as you've learned, it *is* pretty easy to add level_changers. It's harder to find a good place for them, clear out any obstacles (like radiation fields) and then there's the hours of testing to make sure everything's solid. That's what I'm doing. Don't worry, I won't strangle you, I still need you alive... for now.

@ Victim: The only XML-related things I spent much if any time on is the stash description rewrites, and even those need updating to reflect their new contents.

Hey Victim.... 35 X 35 would probably work fine if 40 X 40 won't fit! I appreciate you trying to do this.... sounds like it would be a real pain!

Here's an early sample Fatrap. As you can see, I've only managed to get 8 columns, even when using 35x35 @ 1024x768 and there's not a whole lot of room to move. The empty space on the right side of each inventory needs to be left there so that the scroll bar doesn't cut anything out. I removed the top and bottom background bars and replaced the middle trade frames with slimmer versions and reduced the width of them considerably. There are 7 columns in those screens - if you know how much width (grid spacings) that the longest weapon in the game requires, I may be able to reduce the size further. I'm not certain but I think that some of the rifles use 7 columns if they are equipped with a silencer...and it looks nasty if it hangs over the edge of the inventory.

NB: Please dismiss all of the alignment errors in the picture. I'm just trying to find some balance within the grid system for you first.

Looks pretty good to me Victim! There is a lot more room to tweak things a bit. That will really help a lot. I will really be looking forward to trying it out!

Let me know if you're happy with this example Fatrap. 35x35 grid size @ 1024x768.

Unfortunately, I can't seem to find a way to get more than 8 columns onto the screen without things getting very messy. Yes, I feel a bit silly for promising you 10 columns at a reasonable grid size. I still need to make room for the scroll bars inside the middle frames too but I'll find a way. I might just be able to squeeze one more row in at the bottom if I stretch the textures out. This is for you so don't be shy about giving the orders if you'd like some changes made. Once you're happy with the trade screen, I'll get to work on distributing the changes throughout the other inventory files.

Victim... it looks pretty good to me! I wonder if you could get the extra room for the 10 columns on the outside inventory fields if you used 20 X 20 grids for the center field where it shows the items you are trading. It would be tiny icons but it isn't very important to see that particular field.
Just a suggestion.... might not work at all!

Sure, that'll work fine. It'll look odd but 20x20 will get you your 10 columns. I'll have to start over though so it'll take a while longer...and this time I won't create it on top of Redux.

Yes, that was a major "Doh!" moment.

I'll see if I can get all of the relevant screens done for you during the next few days.

Hey, I'm getting the entity not found bug a lot lately and since NatVac believed that it's a vanilla problem, I thought I'd post it here, hoping that someone will come up with a fix.
