Hi All,

As some of you may know, F l a t l a n d e r has handed over support of RPGmod to me.

So this thread will be the location of all future updates of the free version of RPGmod.

As a polite request please don't start additional RPGmod threads on the forum as they are likely to be locked, similar to all other non-official mod related threads.

NEWS
[2012.10.01] - new RPGmod version, Light A.I., 3rd Person support (r694)
[2012.06.12] - new RPGmod version, expanding on v120 (r674)
[2012.06.06] - new RPGmod version, incorporating v120 (r669)

FEATURES
An Inventory System tracking the items collected by the player. Items can be categorized in up to 7 categories (such as health packs, weapons, money, food, etc.) and associated currency mechanics.

Item Trading such that items within the inventory can be bought, sold and swaped.

A Clues System so the player can obtain text hints to solve puzzles.

A Quest System enabling the player to take on missions across single or multiple levels, that can be timed or otherwise and the player’s success can be logged.

An Objective System that tasks the player with collecting or destroying objects, etc.

A Quizz System that enables multiple-choice and text input tests to be posed to the player.

A Documentation System that enables the game to display information stored within text files as well as file read-write script commands, including encryption.

A Rank and XP system that enables the player to progress through up to 24 sequential ranks.

A Hunger and Dehydration system that forces the player to eat and drink items.

Increased player-character conversation interaction commands.

Increased entity text display and question-answer commands.

A Generic Selection System enabling the player to select an option from a number of choices.

Larger Global Variable set and associated commands, including easy display-to-screen command for debugging.

Additional entity script commands:
Item’s picked-up status,
Customisible “If Used” and “Use Key” parameters,
Switchable immobility,
Switchable gravity.
Additional targeting commands

Additional HUD commands:
Customise “fade-out” direction,
Horizontal scrolling compass,
Change hud position on screen,
Alternative Radar HUD with switchable ‘blips’,
XP & Health reserve display.
HUD text colouring

Saveable Levels so that environments do not reset when revisited by the player.

Additional Player properties and script commands:
Health-reserve mechanic,
Max health and lives modification,
Flashlight,
Jump-flight mechanic,
Alternative armour mechanics,
Weapon repair status.

Additional XBox controller definition such that player actions can be mapped to individual controller buttons. The controller button status can also be tested within scripts.

Light A.I. providing a small set of expanded A.I. control for non-D.A.I. characters.

Third Person Camera controls.

EXAMPLE
Flatlander's game "The Fantastic Adventures of Doctor Jeremiah James and Bob Corvine" is a great example of some of the features within RPGmod. Although technically it uses the Edu version of the mod, it is still a great example of what can be achieved with RPGmod. Check it out here.

VERSIONS
The latest v120 (r694) based version (v5.54) is available here.
The v119 (r613) based version (v5.51) is available here.
The v118 based version (v5.22) is available here.

NOTE: To use each version you MUST first run the official installer (v118, v119 or v120) to ensure that the correct assets are avaiable.


ADDITIONAL INSTALLATION FILES
The installation files can be downloaded here.

You may need msvcr71.dll in order to run Encrpt_Setup_Files.exe needed as part of RPGmod installation - if you do not have this DLL present on your machine you can get the DLL from here: http://www.dll-files.com/dllindex/dll-files.shtml?msvcr71 although the DLL can be obtained from a number of other sites.

USER MANUAL
[EDIT 2012.01.22] - new RPGmod User Manual (v5.01) available in the link at the bottom of the post.

To help users understand what RPGmod can offer I've added the latest RPGmod UM for download (at the bottom of the post). The UM is currently being updated, so please note that the following features are no longer supported:
Slow-Motion Control

No problem with this thread at all; just a reminder: publishing messages/emails from a banned member is not allowed, as it is a way for a banned member to circumvent a ban.

Two part Post (Sorry Ched80 as part is offtopic)

1)Whats the deal with the .DLL posted above? I have no issues running the Mod but have never specifically installed that DLL. Is this only for people having problems or is it some sort of update to that DLL overall?

@Jcatalfamo,

1) The DLL issue is something I came across when I tried to install RPGmod. When I ran the Encrpt_Setup_Files.exe it crashed stating "msvcr71.dll" was missing. I doubt I'm the only person who will get this error message so I posted it to help other out.

I'm running XP, but I'm not sure if that's the sole reason for the missing DLL.

@Ched80

Do you happen to know which version of FPSC source code this is based on? I looked through the other thread, but don't see it.

DC,

I believe it was based on v118 B10, but it also incorporated a lot, if not all of the changes, from B11 to B14.

Basically all of the features of the latest V118 are in there.

For some reason the mod just crashes on me every time I make a test level... idk why. I did the instructions step by step with fps creator 1.18 Beta 13 and 14. Any ideas why it is screwing up?

Could you post the error message? Also could you state when the error happens, if it's during the build process can you state when in the process it happens?

I fixed my keyboard lockup (i think... so far so good)
I renamed my FPS creator folder and did a clean install of version 1 and then installed 118.14, then RPG mod. Everything seems fine now except I noticed that the build game takes alot longer with RPG Mod then without... Not sure why???

@2Beastmode4u
Did you run the Encrpt_Setup_Files.exe?

I know that RPG mod has a way of going between levels in whatever order you want, but does it return to the level exactly the way it was left or does enemys "respawn"?

As far as i understand, although I have never tested it, RPGmod retains the condition of the level so if you return to a previous level the entities will be as you left them.

Stock FPSC v118 will also let you progress through the levels in any order you want, but the condition of the levels is reset.

@ The Zoq2 & Dragon slayer,

After the olive tree site has opened, you should see a thread called "RPGmod Downloads" within this thread is another called "Download RPGmod and Folders" and the link to the install files is within this - it's not obvious, but it is there.

There are also tutorials and other resources for RPGmod there.

Are you sure you have everything set up correctly and there are not errors in your scripts. RPG Mod can be pretty unforgiving if you have a slight error in your startup scripts.

It was supposed to be a monkey / kangaroo fire-breathing hybrid. And it would be 70 km tall, and keep a giant laser in it's pouch.

@2Beastmode4u - there's no incorporation of beta 16 yet, but the next update will mostly likely have this.

@Thraxas, I can't speak for FC, but mine would even get as far as reading the set up fpi's - it doesn't even create the rpg_log file.

Just a short note to say a new version of RPGmod will be released soon solving the test-game crash that myself and flaming chainsaw have witnessed. It was apparently caused by the weblink/email parts of the mod so it is likely these will be removed from the next version of RPGmod.

As soon as it's available I'll let you know.

Have you read through the user manual? There are a number of 'how-to' guides within it.
