The Circle of Eight Modpack Explained

***

Compatibility


The Circle of Eight Modpack is compatible with all available legally purchased editions of ToEE, including the boxed, jewel case, Anthology, and Good Old Games downloadable versions. The Co8 Modpack contains two essential game files that ensure compatibility: temple.dll and toee.exe. Most compatibility issues are resolved by the inclusion of these two files in the modpack, as our files override whichever versions are included in your game.


***

Standard and New Content versions


Our naming mechanism for modpacks is simple: NC stands for new content. Modpacks that have NC appended to their version number feature the major Co8 new content expansions, and those that don't say NC don't feature the major new content expansions. That's all there is to it.


Standard versions contain mainly bugfixes, rules compliance modifications, AI tweaks, and content restoration, in addition to a few actual mods like the Rannos and Gremag revenge scenario and the Moathouse Ambush. These are 'mini-mods' compared to the major expansions, and we include them in the standard modpack because we don't feel they significantly impact the balance of the game, and because our longterm feedback indicates that over time, they have become considered part and parcel with the basic game. Many players don't even know that they are mods. The standard modpacks also contain all our custom portraits, voice sets, items, worldmap, et al.


New content versions contain all of the above and the major new content expansions as described below.


NC expansions 1 - 3 occur during the course of the regular game. Talk to Brother Smyth to access it.
  • New content expansion 1 | Ronald Rynnwrathi | Available at the start of the game. Ronald is an NPC cleric who can be found in the upper level of the Church of St. Cuthbert in Hommlet.

  • New content expansion 2 | Welkwood Bog | Available at the start of the game. Use it to avoid doing the Hommlet Fedex quests! Completing it will take you to roughly level 2.

  • New content expansion 3 | Arena of Heroes | Available after you have been told of Nulb.

NC expansions 4 - 7 comprise the proper NC portion of the game, or 'part 2,' which is intended to cover levels 11 - 20. Part 2 features the city of Verbobonc as the primary quest hub.
  • New content expansion 4 | Verbobonc | Available after you have dealt with Zuggtmoy. Verbobonc features numerous quests and plots and is not merely a staging ground for the other new content.

  • New content expansion 5 | Moathouse Respawn | Available after you have completed at least one of the fugitive quests for Captain Achan in Verbobonc.

  • New content expansion 6 | Hickory Branch | Available after you have completed the Season of the Witch quest.

  • New content expansion 7 | War of the Golden Skull | Available after you have completed Wilfrick's first two quests - 'Frozen Assets' and 'The Slave Traders'.

Installation Instructions


SYSTEM REQUIREMENTS

The Circle of Eight front end utility, TFE-X, requires Java Runtime Environment (JRE) v1.7.0 (also known as Java 7) or higher to run. Most modern systems will have this installed. To check if it's installed on your system, go to Control Panel > Add or Remove Programs and look for 'Java.' Both the standard Oracle package and the open source OpenJDK are fully supported. If you are on Microsoft Windows, you can download Java at this URL: http://java.com/getjava. If you are on Linux, your distro repository should contain a version of Java (e.g. OpenJDK) that you can use.


COMPATIBILITY NOTES

The Circle of Eight modpack is compatable with all retail versions of ToEE, including the boxed, jewel case, Anthology, and Good Old Games download versions.


TEMPLE OF ELEMENTAL EVIL PATCH LEVELS

There were three patches released for the original game. The Circle of Eight Modpack uses patch level 2 to function. The third patch only fixed the looting bug and is not necessary, since that bug is fixed in the modpack as well. If you have a version of the game that is pre-patched to level 3, the Circle of Eight Modpack will simply overwrite it to the proper patch level.

The various releases of the game are patched as follows:

Boxed: generally not patched. You need to apply Atari patches 1 and 2 (see below).
Jewel Case: possibly patched. You should apply Atari patches 1 and 2 anyway (see below).
GOG: Pre-patched. You don't need to apply any Atari patches.
Anthology: Pre-patched. You don't need to apply any Atari patches.


INSTALLATION INSTRUCTIONS

These instructions are taken directly from the Circle of Eight Modpack Release Notes. Follow these four simple steps and you'll be on your way to happy gaming.

STEP 1: INSTALL ATARI PATCH 1
  • If your version of ToEE is not pre-patched, install Atari Patch 1. It is available here:

    DOWNLOAD LINK --> TOEE OFFICIAL PATCH 1
STEP 2: INSTALL ATARI PATCH 2
  • If your version of ToEE is not pre-patched, install Atari Patch 2. It is available here:

    DOWNLOAD LINK --> TOEE OFFICIAL PATCH 2
STEP 3: DO NOT INSTALL ATARI PATCH 3
  • There is no need to install Atari Patch 3. The only additional feature Atari Patch 3 contains is a fix for the infamous DirectX 9.0c looting bug, but this particular issue is also fixed by the Circle of Eight modpack. If you have installed patch 3 already or if your game comes pre-patched with Atari Patch 3, dont worry. It doesn't matter.
STEP 4: INSTALL THE CIRCLE OF EIGHT MODPACK
  • The Circle of Eight Modpack is available here:



  • Double click the Circle of Eight Modpack Setup utility to begin installation. When prompted to choose an installation location, make sure to select the location where your game is installed. The default location as defined by the Circle of Eight Modpack is C:/Temple of Elemental Evil. If you are using a modern operating system like Windows 7 or 8, it is best to avoid installing to the Program Files directory, as those operating systems may not allow unrestricted access there. The Circle of Eight Modpack and Installation Utility require unrestricted access. The default installation location for most versions of ToEE is generally in Program Files. We recommend you change this and install to the root directory of your C: drive.

  • Follow all on-screen promps. After the modpack has been deployed, the Circle of Eight front end utility, TFE-X, will automatically launch.

  • If this is a new installation, TFE-X will perform the necessary operations to convert your installation for use with the Circle of Eight Modpack. Be patient; this can take some time. When TFE-X is finished, it will report the status to you in a popup window. IF YOU HAVEN'T SEEN THIS POPUP NOTIFICATION WINDOW, THE CONVERSION IS NOT COMPLETE. DO NOT CTRL-ALT-DEL OUT OF THE TFE-X APPLICATION. WAIT FOR THE POPUP WINDOW. Next, select the Circle of Eight Modpack from the TFE-X menu and click 'activate.' This can also take some time. WAIT FOR THE POPUP WINDOW TO TELL YOU THAT THE MODULE ACTIVATION IS COMPLETE. DO NOT CTRL-ALT-DEL OUT OF THE TFE-X APPLICATION. After the module has been activated, you may customize various options through TFE-X and launch the game.

  • If this is an existing installation to which you are simply adding the Circle of Eight Modpack, simply select the Circle of Eight Modpack from the TFE-X menu and click 'activate.' This can also take some time. WAIT FOR THE POPUP WINDOW TO TELL YOU THAT THE MODULE ACTIVATION IS COMPLETE. DO NOT CTRL-ALT-DEL OUT OF THE TFE-X APPLICATION. After the module has been activated, you may customize various options through TFE-X and launch the game.

  • Version 4 of TFE-X will give you feedback on the progress of conversion and module activation. Pay attention to this feedback and do not interrupt any of TFE-X's operations.
STEP 5: IF YOU ARE INSTALLING A PATCH OR AN ADD-ON MODULE
  • If you are installing an add-on module like a patch or some other specialized mod, double click its setup utility and follow all on-screen promps. Be sure to select the correct game directory as detailed above in Step 4.

    Launch TFE-X after installation, click Add-On Packs, select the add-on pack you want to install, and click install. WAIT OUT THE INSTALLATION.

    addon.png

  • The module that you are adding the add-on pack to must be activated and selected in the TFE-X module menu prior to activating the add-on pack.

  • You may only have one add-on pack activated at a time.

The Co8 Guide to Successful Gaming with ToEE


Here are some helpful tips to ensure that your ToEE gaming experience is as smooth and problem-free as possible. Learn them, know them, live them, and hold them close to your heart.
  • Run as administrator, if you're using Windows Vista, Windows 7, or Windows 8.

  • Do not install ToEE to the Program Files folder, if you're using Windows Vista, Windows 7, or Windows 8. These operating systems oftentimes have issues with allowing access to files in the Program Files folder and its sub folders, and the Co8 modpack needs access to the game files in order to install and run properly. So instead, install to a custom location like C:/ToEE.

  • Do not attempt to use saves across modules. (e.g., do not use v6.0.0 saves with v8.0.0.) They are NOT compatible.

  • Set your video card to a 'no scaling' setting for video playback. This will make in-game videos play at their original resolution. Some systems experience game crashes when they try to scale ToEE's videos to fit the monitor.

  • Do not play at a resolution greater than 1680 x 1050. The highest resolution reliably supported by ToEE is 1680 x 1050.

  • Do not use quicksaves with ToEE. They corrupt easily. Instead, use an array of at least 5 regular saves while playing ToEE, overwriting each in turn. This practice should ensure that you have a good save to go back to if one becomes corrupt.

  • Do not save during combat. This also runs a greater risk of save corruption.

  • Do not play in Ironman mode. Save corruption is a fact of life with ToEE, and if your Ironman save becomes corrupt, you're finished. If you want an Ironman-style game, it's best to simply play Ironman-style in a regular game.

  • Do not use autosave on map change with ToEE. Using this feature will break certain scripts in ToEE. It is set to 'off' by default in the Co8 modpack.

  • Do not install the moebius2778 temple.dll independantly. This file has been heavily modded since moebius2778's day at Co8, and moebius' fixes are included in the current version. If you overwrite the current version with the moebius version, you will be 'undoing' a great many fixes. Do not install it separately.

  • Do not put an NPC in the left-most position in the party queue along the bottom of the screen. This can cause a variety of problems, such as quests not updating properly or even appearing in your logbook at all.

  • Do not use Scather or Fragarach in the Fire Node or the Fire Temple. You will likely experience the endless AoO loop, and you will be very sad.

***

The ToEE Troubleshooting Checklist


Having problems launching the Co8 mod? Having problems with bad saves? Having problems with the game itself? Here are some things to check.
  • I'm running ToEE and TFE-X under Windows Vista, Windows 7, or Windows 8, and when I try to launch TFE-X, it says "Another instance of TOEE Front-End X is already running!"

    You have to run TFE-X as administrator in Windows Vista, Windows 7, and Windows 8. Right click the TFE-X application icon and check 'Run as administrator.'

  • The game installs fine and maybe even launches fine, once, but then it won't launch anymore! Or, when I try to launch the game via TFE-X, it says that I have to run it from the root directory!

    Your anti-virus software is probably quarantining or deleting the toee executable (toee.exe). Unfortunately, some anti-virus software falsely identifies the ToEE executable as a trojan, but it's a false positive. If the executable is quarantined or deleted, the game won't launch, obviously. (And if the front end can't find toee.exe in your root directory due to it being quarantined or deleted, it assumes you're trying to launch the game from somewhere else.)

    Solutions:
    1. Add toee.exe to your AV software's exceptions list. If that doesn't work -
    2. Disable your AV software. If that doesn't work -
    3. Uninstall your AV software. Yes, some AV software will still kill toee.exe even if it's not running. AVG Free is recommended for use with ToEE. You only have to add toee.exe as an exception once and that's it.

  • My anti-virus software says that the executable (toee.exe) is secretly a virus!

    No it's not. Some anti-virus software falsely identifies the ToEE executable as a trojan, but it's a false positive. Some anti-virus software may even auto-delete or auto-quarantine the executable. You may need to disable or even uninstall your antivirus software if this happens to you. Not all anti-virus software considers toee.exe to be a trojan, so there are alternatives.

  • My game seems to be missing things from the modpack. I get no shopmap, or bugfixes that I know should be there aren't, etc. Or maybe the game doesn't even launch at all! What's going on?

    If you installed ToEE to the Program Files folder and you're running Windows Vista, Windows 7, or Windows 8, you're operating system may not be allowing access to those files. This will make the Co8 modpack malfunction or not function at all. Reinstall the game and the modpack to a custom location like C:/ToEE.

  • My game seems weird. Vanilla elements appear to be mixed with modded elements. What's going on?

    When you installed the Co8 (or KotB) module via TFE-X, did you allow the installation to finish, per the installation instructions? Activating a module may take a long time. You must not interrupt the process or quit before you see a message stating that the activation is complete. If you do, many strange things may happen. If you're unsure whether you allowed the activation to complete, activate the vanilla module and then re-activate the Co8 mod, being sure to allow the activation to finish.

  • My saves have gone bad for no reason!

    Have you used the console to give yourself any items? Inputting a bad proto into the console can cause save corruption long after the fact. It is generally a good idea to avoid this if you're not absolutely sure what you're doing. If you've got a bad save for no apparent reason that you can recall and you're a console user, there's a very good chance that this is the culprit. There is no known cure. Either go back to a good save (if you have one) or start over ... and learn from your mistake.

  • I have the maximum number of PCs set to 8 in TFE-X, but the game won't let me add more than 5 on the party pool page!

    The game actually is adding them. You just can't see them on the party pool page due to original user interface limitations. They will be there when you start the game.

  • My party has just arrived on a new map, but now they have all disappeared! Only their blue circles remain!

    You're playing at a greater resolution than is reliably supported by ToEE. The highest supported resolution is 1680 x 1050.

Known Issues

  • LAG: the game stops responding, animations cease, and characters are frozen in place for periods of a few seconds to a few minutes.

    • Where does it happen? The Air, Earth, and Fire Nodes, Temple Level 4, and the Fire Temple on Temple level 2.

    • What should I do? Wait. The game will come back to life. To lessen it, don't issue long-range movement commands where it occurs.

    • Status: Lag has been dramatically reduced in the Co8 modpack. It's probably most significant still on Temple Level 4.

  • JERKSTOP: character movement commands are not carried out - their blue circles move to the indicated locations but characters don't follow completely, and the game becomes very jerky and unresponsive.

    • Where does it happen? Outside the Inn of the Welcome Wench in Hommlet, mostly.

    • What should I do? Try to leave the area via the worldmap, then return.

    • Status: We believe that we have eliminated jerkstop as of Co8 v8.

  • HANGING COMBAT: the initiative bar is empty for your character in combat, and the game can't progress because he/she can't complete his/her turn.

    • Where does it happen? The Fire Temple and the Fire Node, mostly.

    • What should I do? If your affected character has a potion, try to use it. Otherwise, avoid using the answering swords (Scather and Fragarach) in areas where the bug occurs. It's nearly always related to these swords' abilities to award attacks of opportunity against enemies who have delivered fire damage.

    • Status: Sadly, this is here to stay.

  • SPELL PERMANENCY: the effects of a spell are permanent on your character(s) and/or the associated spell animations are always active around them.

    • Where does it happen? Anywhere.

    • What should I do? Go see Jaroo in Hommlet, inquire about healing, and complain about spell permanency.

    • Status: This is also not going anywhere.

  • MISSING SECRET DOORS AND STAIRS: you cannot detect secret doors and stairs.

    • Where does it happen? Anywhere, but moreso in the Moathouse than anywhere else.

    • What should I do? You can try re-visiting the area over and over to see if the doors/stairs will appear, but most likely they won't. Sadly, you will then have to delete all of your saved games and start a new game.

    • Status: Still going strong, though it is uncommon.
