Oblivion Lost 2.2 + Arsenal RC1 Merge - v0.2
http://www.megaupload.com/?d=PJIM285L


Oblivion Lost 2.2 + Arsenal RC1 Merge - v0.2

Compatible with patches 1.0004 or 1.0005

***REQUIRES A NEW GAME*** PREVIOUS SAVES ARE NOT COMPATIBLE
--------------------------------------------------
Files required:

Oblivion Lost 2.2 = 169Mb

https://www.gsc-game.com/index.php?t=community&s=forums&s_game_type=xr&thm_page=1&thm_id=12491&page=2&sec_id=17

Arsenal RC1 = 158Mb

https://www.gsc-game.com/index.php?t=community&s=forums&s_game_type=xr&thm_page=1&thm_id=15469&page=1&sec_id=16

--------------------------------------------------

Installation:

1. Install Oblivion Lost 2.2 for 1.0004 or 1.0005 doesn't matter which.

2. Install Arsenal RC1 on top of the Oblivion Lost 2.2 gamedata folder.

3. Copy the "Oblivion Lost 2.2 + Arsenal RC1 Merge" gamedata folder on top of where you installed Oblivion Lost and Arsenal, and then last the folder that says "patches" and copy the one corresponding to the patch you're using.

4. Then add the Weapon Cheat gamedata folder if needed, and copy the one corresponding to the patch you're using.

5. If you'd like the game more difficult use the "Tristan's Arsenal damage mod V0.3" located in the "extra" folder, there's also a version for the Weapon Cheat, but you need the Weapon Cheat installed first.

--------------------------------------------------

Things activated by default:

1. I included the faction_change.script, it's enabled so you can join any faction from Sidorovich, if you don't want this just open the file and change it to false.

-- Enable faction change at Sidorovich (all factions)
local allow_fc_at_sidorovich = true

2. The vanilla stashes are default, so if you want random stashes you'll need to activate the random stashes first. Either random with more stashes, or random with less stashes. This is possible at the start of the game, it can also be changed any time after, it's in the main menu, look in the AMK options screen, you just need to activate the type you want.

--------------------------------------------------
Changes and Fixes:

1. Added Tristan Yockell's OL+Arsenal Weapon's mod Version 0.3, this addon makes the merge more difficult so be prepared, it makes changes to weapons range and hit power, also changes some of the ammo characteristics, balancing Arsenal weapons to fit Oblivion Lost. It also makes it so that enemy NPC's can kill you easier due to a lower tolerance to damage, this isn't included by default so if you want added difficulty you need to install the "Tristan's ArsenOL damage mod V0.3" addon located in the "extra" folder.

2. Fixed the clipping to the weapons, caused by the OL zoom being applied to the Arsenal weapons.

3. Made a scope with better zoom for the SVD variants and the AK-47 (Mini-Dragunov), it can be found at the Bar, Duty, and Freedom traders. The VSS Vintorez, AS Val, and SVU also use the same scope even if it's an unchangeable scope.

4. Added some of Arsenal's weapons to the faction traders. Still needs some work done.

5. Made a small change to the Binoculars so their visible in the HUD.

6. Fixed All the weapon load-outs for the NPC's so the correct ammo matches their weapons, this is what was causing a few of the NPC's to panic, even if you hadn't engaged them.

7. Added AMK 1.4 random stashes. Includes Arsenal items as well as OL and vanilla items, the default vanilla stashes don't include Arsenal items.

8. Changed the trader supplies, this doesn't mean you can have access to every weapon early in the game, but most of the new weapons will become available, when you advance the story. The traders prices go down if you advance the story, but only slightly, and not every trader, the Bar, Duty, and Freedom for example do. The prices for selling certain goods have increased, Yantar pays more for mutant parts, artifacts. Duty will pay more for Russian weapons, and a few other weapons. Barkeep pays more for Loner suits, Freedom values NATO weapons, but not every NATO weapon, just a few. There's also some items not mentioned so you'll need to find those yourself.

9. Fixed most of the addons that were not lining up correctly in the inventory screen for the Arsenal weapons, including the unique vanilla weapons that use the Arsenal addons.
--------------------------------------------------

Description:

This merge incorporates Arsenal RC1 weapons into Oblivion Lost 2.2. The weapons have been slightly balanced so Arsenal's weapons fit more into OL. It's stable and doesn't crash a lot, though you might find one every once in a while. The only crashes I've experienced are weapons being labeled wrong in the Character descriptions files of the original Arsenal, which caused a crash, I fixed those so don't worry about those, plus they were rare and didn't happen a lot in the vanilla Arsenal.

Most of the problems you'll experience are the Arsenal weapon prices not being balanced with OL. But in the most part it plays exactly like OL, just with more weapons and additions like the random stashes. The Arsenal weapons are found mostly on NPC's and can be bought from traders, they're also found in the stashes, if you decide to use the random stashes. If you use the vanilla stashes you don't get any Arsenal weapons from stashes.

I've also included some translations, though their not professionally done, but they should get us by until someone else properly does them. This merge can be difficult at times due to the NPC's having better weapons and due to OL being a difficult mod in it's own right.

I personally don't need any acknowledgement for this merge, the true modders are credited below. Also if you have any problems or crashes be sure to post them here:

https://www.gsc-game.com/index.php?t=community&s=forums&s_game_type=xr&thm_page=1&thm_id=15815&sec_id=16

Don't go bugging Kanyhalos, Zereset and Dester about this merge, their not responsible for any problems that could happen if you play this mod.

This is not a official release don't upload this on any mainstream websites.

Alright, I got version 1.0005 installed. Changed the ltx file value to TRUE. Installed OL. Dropped Arsenal into the folder as well. Finally, I dropped the merge and patch data.

I've done it twice so far and the game seems to work alright, but the inventory icons are all fucked up. Any ideas how to fix this or prevent it from happening in the first place?

Is there a special program that I should use for merging?

EDIT: It seems that I have the 0.1 version of the merge... I'll try with the 0.2 and post the results.

If anyone is still having problems with the icons being screwed up, try this out and see if any of them work.
