MegaMiniMod 1.01 RELEASED!!

Postby SomeGuyInABikini » Mon Apr 05, 2010 1:54 pm

Edit: Version 2.02 now released. Please check the 2.02 thread for info.
If you're having crash issues getting into the MOD, usually on Windows 7/8/10, then use the saved games linked below. You can edit them in a text editor (notepad) to change the town name/forename/surname.


HELLO KUDOSIANS!

I have completed version 1.00 of the Kudos 2 MegaMiniMod *Yay! Cheering! Woo!*. I had intended to make this not long after Kudos 2 came out, but life got in the way. The file is a 2mb, self-extracting RAR that will override a large number (~140) of Kudos 2's files. This mod contains every reasonable mod I could find on the Kudos 2 forums, plus much, MUCH more.

Special thanks to Corylea, jennikj, Parsec, sambrookjm, Severian for their contributions.
SuperSpecial thanks to Cliffski for making such an awesome and awesomely moddable game!

Hmmm, unfortunately I'm completely devoid of Mac knowledge.

As the file is a compressed RAR I 'assume' you could use
http://www.unrarx.com/
to open it.

If there's any difference between the Mac and PC text files/formats/directory structure then I have no way of making those files as I don't have a Mac.

Anyone out there with some Kudos/Mac lovin'? :)


SomeGuyInABikini, should perhaps invest in some Macattack

I've uploaded a ZIP version (created with WinRAR)
http://tinyurl.com/yl5p2an

And a TAR version (created with StuffIt)
http://tinyurl.com/ye2becy

Let me know if you can open either of these :)

Uh-oh...

Guys, I downloaded the stuff and extracted it in the directory after a fresh install... and I got this...
error.jpg

:(

When I did put the original data folder back (w/o the mods) and it started working again...

Did I do something wrong? :'O

Hmmm, the MOD doesn't contain every file from the data folder, and doesn't exit that file. Did you extract the MOD and override the original data folder, or did you rename the original folder then extract the MOD? If you did the former then it should work fine, but if you did the latter then that's the problem as you'll be missing files :)

In that case just make a copy of the Data folder instead of renaming it, then extract the MOD and override the Data folder.

G'day ZacSawyer!

Tabloid files? I'm sorry but I'm not sure what the problem is. I've tried all the magazines and newspapers and don't have any issues here. Did you install Kudos 2 version 1.09 before installing the MOD? If you didn't make a backup then I'd suggest just reinstalling the game as this is the simplest way of 'uninstalling' the mod. Also remember you can't use your old savedgames.

Let me know the exact phrasing of the error if reinstallation does not work =\ Cheers

Hey-ya

The easiest way to get v1.09 is to redownload the game. If you only recently bought it (and from Positech, not a third party) then you can use the link e-mailed to you. Otherwise you will need to contact Cliffski:
"If you need your download link reactivating, just email cliff@positech.co.uk with your order details/ email address."

If you downloaded it from a third party then you'll need to let Cliffski know so he can tell them to update their version (unless the third party is just REALLY slow in doing so).

There is a patch thread (viewtopic.php?f=17&t=2000), but it doesn't seem to have all the patches in there.

I have 1.09 version. I uninstalled and reinstalled the game prior to downloading this mod. I extracted in the Kudos 2 directory. This is the first and only MOD I've ever downloaded. The game loads the avatar screen just fine and the initial gaming screen where it states it's the players twentieth birthday, etc.; however, once I select play from that point the game crashes. There is no error, it just says that it suddenly stopped for some reason and to close the program.

Help?

Hi Simplyme!

I'm wondering what version of Windows you are using. Using Windows 7 64bit I find Kudos 2 crashes at that same point about 25% of the time, with or without the mod, but it seems completely random. Try running the game several times and see if it works on successive attempts.

I've uploaded a couple "template" saved games (http://db.tt/xSRBBy). Copy these into your Kudos 2 saved game folder and see if they run. If they run then you can edit the saved game in a text editor (eg. Notepad, not Wordpad) and can then change the town/forename/surname/etc.

If you're using Windows XP 32bit then I'm not sure what the problem is as I am unaware of any mod crash bugs. The only thing i could suggest is copying chunks of the mod over, running the game and then seeing at what point it crashes.

Windows Vista 64-bit with Kudos 2 v1.09 was choking on this mod 100% of the time for me (crashing directly after the bit about the 20th birthday). After file-by-file examination, I narrowed the issue down to social_events.csv.

After line-by-line examination, I narrowed the issue down to, well:

#,NORMAL,sex,Sex,"Put on the Barry White,it's time to get... it... on!",Sex Addict,sex,0,SOCFLAG_HOMEBASED,PlaySound(gigglekiss.ogg),Call(dirtyhome),"_random,1.0,french,0.2,meditation,0.5,weather_snow,0.2,weather_rain,0.3","That might have been the worst sex you've ever had. Maybe better than masturbating. Maybe.","A good frolic. Not especially mind-blowing,but it can't always be great. You know?","Wow. That's all you can say.","I'm infatuated with you... Wanna do it in the back of my pickup truck?",0,0,-1,-1,1,1,1,1,1,1,1,2,2,#,sex,1.0,alcohol,0.3,#,stress,-0.3,_STRESS_DEGRADE,"boredom,-0.25,0.5","fitness,0.05,_FITNESS_DEGRADE","tiredness,0.2,_TIRED_DEGRADE","kudos,0.03,_KUDOS_DEGRADE",#,"_energy,0.4","charisma,0.5","_cleanliness,0.7","confidence,0.5",,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,


Removing this line allows play to proceed as normal. Not yet up for going in by hand and parsing out the problem. But it's in there, certainly.
