    Arrow Unofficial Patch v1.8 - Status

    Hi all,

    after the patches 1.71, 1.72 and 1.73 I started to make a new patch, a bigger patch, a greater patch ... Patch 1.8.

    It was hard work, because of Bullfrogs "userfriendly" file-formats and some difficult bugs. The patch is NOT finished yet. There are still some problems.

    So I will discribe now things where are fixed, things I have problems with and things I want to do. I hope some people wanna help me, because alone it would take years to finish this update.

    This update is only to fix bugs and solve problems with the game. No balance changes, map changes or something else ... maybe in 1.9 .

    1.Successful changes:

    - The game can now be played without CD (not shattering i think )
    - The movies can be watched without CD
    - Solved the problem with SafeDisk
    - No freezes ingame anymore (at my computer, don't testet with others...)
    - The german version of this game is now uncut (no need to delete files or change registry)
    - QSound fixed (99% stable with QSound ON)
    - Players with different language-versions of DK2 can chat in the lobby
    - All creatures in the campaign now available and no problems with the end of the levels
    - The maps "Furnace" and "Olympia" are compatible to each player
    - The maps "Islands" and "Platform" are available for skirmish
    - The map "Traptime" is available for multiplayer
    - The official DK2-Editor and the three Bonus-Packs are included in this patch
    - The mainmenu of DK2 doesn't lag anymore (but the menu looks not really well)


    2.Known bugs that really have to be fixed:

    CHAT-BUG - The game crashes if one player use TAB to chat
    MONEY-BUG - The game crashes if one players goldreserve goes under 0
    PLAYER-BUG - The game crashes if one player presses Space, ESC or go out of the game when he/she is defeated
    AI-BUG - The AI have problems dropping creatures with the "Hand of Evil"
    RESET-BUG - When a player goes while DK2 is running to the desktop, sometimes some settings will be resetted
    KEYBOARD-BUG - Keyboard settings will not be saved
    BUTTON-BUG - Players can use Magic-Boxes more than one times
    NORTH/SOUTH-BUG - Creatures in the south are more powerful than their opponents in the north


    3. Things who I want to do:

    - Make the menu faster and look well (.BF4-Files are the problem to do that)
    - A higher resolution than 1280x800, that means 1280x1024 and 1600x1200
    - Make the AI more powerful
    - Enable these features without complications/conflicts: biliniar filtering, 32bit and EMBM
    - Allow to play up to 5 players online


    I really hope somebody can help me with some of this, especially for this bugs where are "saved" somewhere in the code of DK2.

    I would love to see proper (graphics)hardware support, but I guess that would be pretty hard to implent.

    Maybe you should write whats new in 1.8 instead of copy pasting 1.73, and pass it off as your own work.

    Hey, when you start with AI, contact me and Jibbits, we'll tell you what we did in order for you not to do the same mistakes/actions. Even better, lets cooperate on this part.

    Red writing:



    here's the file for you to add:

    You will need to convert in back to a .WAD file before finishing. I can't because I don't want to ruin my game.(just yet)

    tomix, nice to see you again, i´m a bit surprised.
    good that you still try to fix dk2.


    dotted, not all things which are listed here, are fixed in 1.73.



    i hope you will have success with that,
    but i cant help out, because i am really a noob in such stuff.
    but i think the game bugs arent fixable easily.
    btw, i dont think the north-south "bug" is a bug, i think it was planned by developers of the game, it was already in 1.3.

    Does that mean creatures from the north/south portal are affected, or when they are in the north/south. And why would that be?

    creatures in the north are weaker than creatures in the south
    or
    creatures in the south are stronger than creatures in the north
    same thing.
    no relation to portals
