Oriental Adventures Worldhack v1.3 Release

(1/8) > >>

Darius:
Ni hao, my friends!   :D
Version 1.3 of the OA Worldhack has been uploaded at last to the UA File Archive and is now available for download.  The update is available as a patch from v1.2 (oa-bfix2.zip) for existing OA'ers or a full install (oa-setup.zip) for those who have yet to venture to the Far East.
 
The OAUA team has been hard at work, fixing reported bugs and adding lots of new, exciting enhancements.  Below is a complete list of the changes:
 
Bug Fixes:

* Added usage of Butterfly Sword and Fine Butterfly Sword for Monk class
* Fixed Zone Step Event bug in Global Event editor
* Corrected Overaweing special ability to affect only level 1 enemies
* Updated STRG.GLB to reflect correct entries for Bakemono Leader and Kuei
* Fixed Potion of the Chameleon bug that was causing loss of hit points
* Corrected issue with Do Good event that made Unconscious PCs unrecoverable
* Fixed Metal to Rust spell effect to work as described
* Corrected Wu-Jen automatic spell allotment list
* Tweaked item granted by Enchanted Blade to prevent exploit

Spells:

* Added 10 new Wu Jen spells including: Monkey's Grip, Identify, Blow Away, Time Stop, Sunburst, Cobra's Breath, and Celestial Fury
* Added 1 new Shukenja spell: Death's Door
* Renamed a few Wu Jen and Shukenja spells
* Wu-Jen now may learn 2 new spells at each level advance instead of only 1

Designer Tools:

* Added 'carat' hack to enhance PC referencing capability in Text boxes
* Enhanced combat events to allow for alternate placement of 'friendlies'
* Added Iron Cobra and Yellow Musk Zombie small pics
* Replaced Shadowdancer and Spirit Master sprites
* Added Kappa-Ti, Rakshasa Ruhk and Emerald Master sprites
* Removed racially based level limits
* Updated SCRIPT.GLB to include extended Monster Editor
I've also released a new version of the Tale of Twin Dragons: Part I (oa-td1.zip) to take advantage of some of the new functionality and PC fixes, and of course updated documentation to detail the new changes. 
 
Enjoy!

Hey Darius and OAUA Team,

I'm having some trouble installing OAUA1.3, can you help me?

Since running oapat13.exe with WinVista did not work, I tried running it with DOSBox. I got the message "LOAD ERROR: no DPMI, get csdpmi*b.zip". So I searched the web and downloaded csdpmi3b.zip, copied the content of the BIN folder into the game folder, like I read somewhere, and tried again. This time I got the message "This patch updates original ckit_" but nothing else; when I pressed a key, there was the command prompt again. Not sure whether anything had been updated, I loaded OAUA and tested both the 'carat' hack and the 'Do Good' event fix. Strangely, the 'carat' hack worked, while the 'Do Good' event was still bugged, so I still don't know if OAUA1.3 was patched or not ...

Darius:

Hi Olivier,
This release came in two different versions -- one is a patch from v 1.2 to v 1.3, and one is a full install.  If you have the file oapat13.exe, then you must have downloaded the full install -- but haven't you been working with OA already, in which case you only needed the patch?  The reason I ask is because the executable files which install the CKIT hacks are two very different files, and they check to make sure you've read the instructions and are applying the correct one...   ;)

So you have two options -- you can either set up a brand new, untouched, un-UAShelled copy of FRUA and then install all of the contents of oasetup.zip on top of that and run oapat13.exe, or you can install the patch files from oa-bfix2.zip on top of what you already had (which should be version 1.2) and run the executable patchup.exe that comes with that package.  Applying the correct file will get you a near instant, quiet install of the CKIT hacks with no error messages.

Funny though, that it seemed to have installed the carat hack despite the error message?  What bug did you see unfixed with the Do Good event?   :P

That's what I did. You're right about previous installs on my harddisk but I wanted a fresh clean start, so I did everything by the books, new UA1.2, no UAShell, oasetup and oapat13.exe. I even refrained from removing Ckit's password request because the instructions said not to use a hacked version. The only thing I didn't do - not sure if that was my fault - was to create a folder for oa-td1.dsn and install that too before applying oapat13.exe.

But okay, last time I complained to you about OA1.2 not working correctly, re-installing it solved the problem, so you've got a right to be suspicious. I'm not above committing errors, even when I read instructions.  ;)

I'll just try again.

There was no error message, it went like this:

C:/OAUA/>_
C:/OAUA/>oapat13
This patch updates original ckit_
(because DOSBox waited for a prompt I pressed ENTER or SPACE)
C:/OAUA/>_ (back to command prompt)

Should oapat13.exe give out any other messages while patching? Any visuable signs that it worked?

Well, what bug DID you fix?   :P

An unconscious NPC in the party regained hit points through the Do Good event but the color of his name in the character menu remained the same as for dead or unconscious PCs/NPCs. His status was OKAY but in the next combat he showed up as a corpse and didn't take part in the battle.

Should the problem remain after my second try in installation, I'll check how an unconscious PC reacts to the Do Good event. For now, I'm off following instructions.  ;)
