RELEASE: Circle of Eight Mod Pack 1.1.0

Here is what's new in this version:

Portrait Wizard v0.20

Toshi's Katana Mod v1.0 - Summary of Changes
*Damage Adjusted to 1d10 /19-20x2
*Damage used is v3.5 standard as per the DMG
*Katana now uses Exotic Weapon Proficiency to mirror rules listed in 3.5 DMG
*One handed or Two-handed wielding style available
*Mod test up to 6th level - Enchantment and Customization of the Katana with Craft Skills appears to remain unchanged and is working as intended

Katana Rules Description
*The Katana damage has been adjusted to the damage and critical range values listed in the 3.5 DMG.
*Exotic Weapon Proficiency: Bastard Sword is now required for the Katana to be wielded normally.
*Bastard Sword proficiency was used as it was the closest approximation to the Katana sword in the available list of proficiencies.

Mona's Orb Quest Fix

Brothel Dialogue/Mona Quest Fixes - Stops Mickey from running off, more points in mona's dlg to go into brothel, and no teleport after using services.

Burning Hands is now an Evocation spell (as opposed to Transmutation previously)

Item Crafting - Spells which require Fox's Cunning now function as they should

The Blacksmith has a 75% chance of selling a Full Helm and a Katana

New graphics for Chris Woods' Ioun Stones

Sorcerers now start with red clothes as opposed to green. There's nowhere in the game where you can purchase it and it look better than the other two. This will be changed when someone figured out how to implement it into the Tailor's store inventory.

Items Renamed Pirate Hat is now called a Bicorne

Asian Hat is now called a Coolie Hat

Metamagic Fix

Fogless Towns
This modification makes it so that all the exterior and interior areas in the towns of Hommlet and Nulb are removed of the incredibly annoying 'fog of war' effect. You will notice an improvement in your framerate and performance in the aforementioned areas. Combat areas are still the same for a variety of reasons - a couple of them being to retain the elements of surprise and adventure - it's just no fun knowing exactly where to expect combat situations.

As with most things, it's best to uninstall the previous version before installing the new one.

Though, the installation should work just fine even if you have the old version (1.0.0) still installed. However, doing this might cause your registry to become messed up and should you ever choose to uninstall 1.1.0 later on you might run into some difficulty.

So yes, please uninstall the old version before you do anything.

Excellent work on the patches.

However, is there a .exe file release or does anyone know of a free .rar programme?

Cheers.

http://www.rarlab.com/download.htm

software is called WinRAR, works remarkably like winzip, and handles every kind of mass-market archive I've come across (zip, rar, arj, tar.gz, ...)

I might be able to trick the installer into checking for older versions and uninstalling them... but I still have no internet Phone did come on this morning though, so that's a start

Go to www.rarlabs.com - it's free/shareware or look up RAR on Google, you should find a lot of hits.

Unrar (it's just like zip) the .exe file contained within. The rest is straightforward.

I put an actual installer so you guys don't have to spend time figuring out what goes where.

[Edit: Fixed this link too, though I agree that they should buy that domain and redirect it. - V]

I will -probably- (though I have no idea how at the moment) be able to do that in the future. However, it seems we may have used different installers for our builds. I used WISE Pro Evaluation.

WINRAR is only free for 40 days.

Or can you keep on using it after 40 days and the programme just bugs you to register? (Kinda like WINZIP)?

Yeah I don't know if WISE and InnoSetup can find each other

At any rate, we'll work something out when I get back online at home.


Jaspar: Yes that's how it works. Little nag screen, fully functional.

You can keep using it after 40 days - it just bugs you every time you open a file until you register. I'm thinking of buying it, myself - it's damn handy and I use it more than Winzip (ditched that POS a long time ago) and XP's Compressed Folders.

Heh, with all of this patching you guys are making it damn tempting to run out and buy the game now and take my chances on the official patch from troika.

Thumbs up Other "Mini-mods"?

What about the other mini mods you supplied in this forum? Do I need to track the files and delete them from the dirs I've put them before installing patch1.1?

You shouldn't have to, any mini-patches the mod patch should just overwrite, IF they are somethign that is fixed. IE my moathouse quest isn't so you'd have to re-add its files afterwards(they shouldn't interfer) though I don't know about other such patch...though I haven't seen any other quest addition or such types.

Yet another thankyou message

Tried the 1.1 patch last night. Was finally able to give the orb to Mona and no fog in towns. No CTDs either.

Keep up the good work and I won't need no steenking 'official' patch.

The fanfix will load normal saved games, BUT if you remove the patch after saving a game you will not be able to(might have to have new items for it to fail not sure).

Question Monks & Magical Weapons/Armor

Great Work on the patch. A Question about future versions? Would it be possible to add monk weapons Ex: Kama to the blacksmith or implement a new merchant for Magical Weapons/Armor it has bugged me that there is only one flame blade in the game and I would like to see more magic items for SALE.
p.s. game is still figuring masterwork items as -1 rather than +1 as regards skill checks.???

I installed the WinRar software, and am trying to use it with the new patch 110.exe.

I extract the .exe, and get the 110 application. But double clicking on this gives me the following error: Cannot find the file 'MSIEXEC' make sure the path and filename are correct and that all required libraries are available.

What am I doing wrong? Thanks for your time

Nothing, Another user had trouble with the msiexec not being part of the Co8 package, on the download page is a "Special version" below others, try it instead.
