For vista/7 users: Don't forget to run the installer with admin rights, or it won't be able to patch the executable and you won't see all the animations in the game. Also don't forget to turn off num lock to disable "always-run" mode while playing.

2) Low attack with weapon (and/or shield) equipped.

Known bugs:

Hello,

This is my first post, and I have to tell you that this is an amazing site. I just decided to try to play the game again, and I wanted to play it with as much of the 'original' or 'intended' content as possible. So, I am going to try to load all the things that 'restore' game content in my computer and play it. I saw the Beta Restoration Patch and I want to try it. Is it compatible with the Official patch 1.0.7.4. and the Unofficial Arcanum Patch by Thief?

Thank you for all your hard work,

Birimorisar

PS: Eventually I want to try the other things that you are making.

Welcome Birimorisar,

it should be compatible with any 1.0.7.4 based patch, including UAP. The beta pack has also installer and uninstaller to it's possible to uninstall it without reinstalling whole game. Just be sure that you install the beta restoration pack at the end, after you install everything else.

See you around. :twisted:

Crypton,

Awesome!

I will give it a whirl. But I think I am going to install in this order:

Vanilla
1.0.7.4.
UAP
Magic Mod

Lossless Music
HQ Townsmaps

Universal Level Cap Remover (to 127)

The Beta restoration pack

(And maybe the portrait packs that you posted)

Let's see if that works.

I've gotta try this when I'm back home!

But when you quoted "A new weapons and animations for some monsters".
Did you mean new animations for different weapons and monster, or that it was included some new weapons?

No need to fix, it works fine (download at least 500KB/s), but the interruption might be caused by very long distance between our server and your home.

Anyway, here is a mirror link: http://www.megaupload.com/?d=V0JBXEHW

Enjoy! :twisted:
