NS Joint Pak PLO K MA (English) by achillesdave

We needed a discussion thread for this intriguing mod.

The Joint Pak gamedata folder contains:

Narodnaya Solyanka 19.04..+..exp 14.08..+..patch 03.09
Combined Weapons pack 1.1 (BUUSTY)
The Collector 0.5.5
Master Addon 1.1

For game version 1.0004

widescreen adaption applied

Read more about it in the 'Downloads' section.

===================================================================

Avast Virus Program does not like the xrGame.dll Says it's a 'Win32:RmnDrp' I had to shut it off to move the file, but as soon as I launch the game, Avast removes it. I put in the xrGame.dll from Boutch71's DMX 1.35, which is for v1.004. Game launched, but I'm not sure what else to do. I guess I'll see if the game crashes when I get the 'Executioner.'

===================================================================

Once again, Yakut dies in my game

Wulfric, thanks for starting this thread.

People who have played through NS know the disappointment of reaching Zaton only to find out its unpopulated and that the other COP territories were not accessible. The addon changes that.

This quest line will start when you finish the mission bringing Sakharov the three scientific manuals from each of the labs (X-18, X-16, X-10). He will send you to Wolf on Army Warehouses for an additional reward. It will unfold a whole chain of quests that will take you to the new locations: East Pripyat, Lab X-8, Pripyat underground, Jupiter, and Zaton. This chain of quests is hardcore.

The only quest that affects the NS story line is given to you by the Marsh Doctor in the Cordon where you first meet Fox. Make sure you take this quest or the Doctor will not give you dialogue in Pripyat.

The quest lines Arrow caches and Kostya caches 2 are cheat protected. If you change the jump or add items to traders, the quest line will stop. The rest of the mod is unaffected by these measures.

From reading the mod authors posts (Proper70) on AMK forum, there is an expansion coming for this mod. He posted in January that it will be another 4 to 6 months. So its due soon, I hope to continue this adventure.

Hello and thanks for uploading this my first ever attempt at NS was with the old 8 parter you uploaded a couple of years ago.

I've downloaded this and the dmx version recently uploaded and would like some info on the state of this versions translation and the stability aswell please.

I haven't started either as I want to be able to compare them before deciding which to try first.

How much of this is rewritten rather than machined?
Thanks for any info you can give me and again thanks for the upload

Achillesdave, thanks for sharing this with us.

Also, had Virustotal.com run xrGame.dll through 46 antivirus scanners (including Avast) without any alarms. Which is not to say that it is safe, but only that there is no known malware detected. Not using it yet myself. Takes me forever to stop messing around in Cordon, sandbox style.

Hello davideverett,

As far as the addons go, all was written by hand. As I best understood it (Quests, weapon, item, and armor descriptions.). I also made some improvements to the NS translation. sak_strings_treasure was fully translated from google english, thats the vodka for information on caches. arhara_dialog script SMS were improved, the storyline relies on them heavily once you enter the undiscovered land. Documents and items relating to the storyline were improved. English captions were added to photographs in the photogun quests. Some fatal errors were corrected, early cave crash, lightning quests, Weapon texture and sound crashes due to cyrillic text, doctor dog quest, ect.

Dmx or Joint Pak? It depends on player preferences. This mod is hardcore, according to the authors. I tried DMX before and didnt like it. I felt it dumbed down the difficulty and ruined the economy by adding a lot of useless items and features. This new version of DMX might be something different entirely.

Hi, Pseudostomp

You dont really need the new xr.game.dll till later in the game. Weapons that have scope zoom and target recognition need it. I had problems with avast and avira when I was making mods for Fallout 3 and New Vegas, they just dont like modder tools.

(reply to your post in the DL thread)
The Mega.co.nz is a pretty good place to store your files. 50GB of free space and no size limits on your files. The upload and download speeds are better than any other free file shareing site I've tried.

The download link for the first part refuses to let me have it unless I download Google Chrome first. I don't particularly want Google Chrome. Is it hosted anywhere else?

Thats a requirement of mega.co.nz unfortunately. The download and upload speeds are good though.
