I just loved the game ....is just incredible hard , on your first playtrought you'll go insane ...there are just to many quests , new guilds to complete .

Lags ...yeah a little bit , when you'll go later in the game when are about 10000000 orcs in one place , but nothing grave.
Bugs...nope , nothing major.

I'm just gonna give you some hints :
Play the game as a Brotherhood meber ...it's the hardest but the most beautifull way.
Dont join any guild untill you finish the quests for all of them.

I've actually finished it 2 times , first time 130 h. (WITH massive marvin use for travaling) , This mod doubles the size of the world .

Sounds stupid but... HOW THE HELL DO I MAKE THE GODDAMN PSEUDOENGLISH PATCH WORK?!?! I mean where for crying out loud do I have to install it? I tried everywhere but it didn't work. The mod works, I did all the steps but the pseudoenglish patch won't work! :mad:

... I've already done the thing with modifying the returning bla bla. ini or whatever... yeah exactly 2 spaces... and extracted the returning_07 file or whatever in the Gothic2/Data/modvdf. I tell you, I did ALL the things required... but still doesn't work.

If it helps with anything: I have an ironkeep community patch installed, is THIS the problem? although I doubt it...lol.

Hi Sorinash

I think that is just a timestamp problem with an outdated version of the PEP.
Please use the latest version of the PEP (v08), from this post:
http://forum.worldofplayers.de/forum/showthread.php?p=15138222&#post15138222

1.
Unzip "Returning11_pseudoenglish_08.7z" and copy the file "Returning11_pseudoenglish_08.mod" into the directory ".\Gothic II\data\modvdf".

2.
Edit ".\Gothic II\system\RETURNING_mod.ini" and change Line 73 from:
VDF=RETURNING_mod.mod
to:
"VDF=RETURNING_mod.mod Returning11_pseudoenglish_08.mod"

And I got a question: I have a quest from Baal Tion and he says that one of the alchemists in Khorinis has a recipe that he wants. I asked every alchemist that I knew and even searched around them but I haven't found the recipe... can somebody tell me where it is please? :D

the recipe is in
Monestary, go to there and enter without paying anything (climbing), you need to pick pocket Gorax and go in the room underground (treasurry or food room , can't remeber)and the recipe is there ...

btw, did you find The assasins guild in the city?

Uhh there is one difference...
"VDF=RETURNING_mod.mod Returning11_pseudoenglish_08.mod"
There are actually 2 SPACES between VDF=RETURNING_mod.mod and Returning11_pseudoenglish_08.mod that you have to put, so you only have to put another space, simple as that :D

Or there are actually 2 spaces in that image? I can't really tell... the image isn't that big...

Hi, :)
Ensure correct installation of the modification.

How do I install Gothic II - The Returning
Note:

The installation should be noted that the "Gothic II - The Returning" can be installed in two ways. The right choice (GothicStarter.exe) see the following picture (http://upload.worldofplayers.de/files3/K95zgZNOWkVUoNdMAyeInstallauswahl.jpg) (alternative external link (http://www2.pic-upload.de/11.04.10/em2dajy233y.jpg)).
First, as a "game", while it is fully integrated, similar to the original installation of DNDR on G2, and the normal G2 DNDR is no longer playable. Furthermore, there may be problems with other mods, so this type of installation is not recommended.
Second, the "mod" version, which differs from other mod installations not and thus the operation of other mods and G2 DNDR disabled.
In all installations Vista/Win7 should be strictly carried out as "administrator" (right mouse button -> as administrator ...).


v1.0:
The small version of Modkit's
The Modkit Patch v2.6a
The Gothic Starter Update
The Return v1.0
When played in Russian:
5.1. Font textures for documents



v1.1:
The small version of Modkit's
The Modkit Patch v2.6a
The Gothic Starter Update (playerkit)
The Returning v1.0
The Returning v1.1 Patch
a. When played in Russian:
6.a.1. HotFix for The Returning v1.1
6.a.2. Font textures for documents
b. When playing with the pseudo English patch:
6.b.1. PEP for The Returning v1.1
6.b.2. Optionally, the 'font textures for documents'

2. I installed 1.1, choose GothicStarter, I didn't extracted anything like in 1.0 asked.

I have same error with zmorphes .

1. I install 1.0, choose the one with GothicStarter, then i extracted some files when asked.
2. I installed 1.1, choose GothicStarter, I didn't extracted anything like in 1.0 asked.

NVM I made it, I chose the returning_mod in modfdvd and extract there\

where can I see all changes?

have you ever played a mod before? :C:

@dark:

I assume you have g2 notr 2.6

1. Install 1.0 and choose second(with GothicStarter)
While installing, there will appear gothic 2.5 vdsf(something like these) search in gothic 2 folder and there will appear a file . chose it
Then press extract volume. Then exit

2. Install 1.1 and coose second
While installing, there will apepar again 2.5 vdsf. Search again in gothic2/data/modfvd

then choose returning_mod and extract volume

This is how i installed . The rest what to do is mention here.

One more thing:

VDF=RETURNING_mod.mod Returning11_pseudoenglish_08.mod RETURNING_mod_v1.1_Hotfix_08.mod

If you want to make worth both, be sure to have like these( i will not put ", so when you see " in next line , you COPY exactly like these in returning_mod.ini

VDF=RETURNING_mod.mod "Returning11_pseudoenglish_08.mod RETURNING_mod_v1.1_Hotfix_08.mod"

@ Zero Cool

I noticed some strange things in your posts. I think you have not followed the installation order from MaGoth´s Post (http://forum.worldofplayers.de/forum/showthread.php?p=16298969&#post16298969) correctly.

1. I install 1.0, choose the one with GothicStarter, then i extracted some files when asked.
...

The installation of Returning runs fully automatically after you've chosen for the installation of the "mod-version".
But with "GothicVDFS v2.5", the installation of "Returning" will fail. You need GothicVDFS v2.6 or v2.6(mod).
-->
So first install the small version of Modkit (http://www.worldofgothic.com/dl/?go=dlfile&fileid=88) and the MDK: Patch v2.6a (http://www.worldofgothic.com/dl/?go=dlfile&fileid=89) to upgrade GothicVDFS to "v.2.6(mod)".

Hello there! My name is... ah... Landros? :D And so far this is my first post on the forum.

For the past 3 hours I've been trying to install the Returning mod for Gothic 2. I belive I've installed it 5 times to no avail... :eek: I'm a total wreck of nerves right now so I'm practicly BEGGING you guys to help me out a bit.

I've already read all the available help, even the one on the german forum using some pseudo-english translations via google translator... as well as some ones on the russian forum.

The conclusion? Again... to no avail...

First I didn't know I had to downgrade my gothic to version 2.6... but I learned about that. Then... I managed to instal the mod and make it work... but in the EXE format, not the MOD one... thus no pseudo-english patch... thus logicaly no way for me to play the game.

Now that I finally thought I understood everything, I got on with the 5th attempt... and here's the order of my actions:

1) Installed Gothic 2 + NOTR english version (2.7)
2) installed the 2.6.0.0 fix for downgrading to 2.6
3) installed the gothic MDK (small) + update
4) installed the GothicStarter 2.6a
5) installed Returning 1.0 (MOD)
6) installed Returning 1.1 (MOD)
7) finally extracted the pseudo-english VDF into the appropiate folder in the gothic directory and also done the required modification to the Returning ini file.

What I have now... when I enter GothicStarter, I have two entries. One... the normal Gothic2 but wich strangely is all in german now (except the audio) and who's name in the GothicStarter is writen in russian letters... :scared:

Then there's the seccond entry in the GothicStarter... with a new icon and when clicked upon shows me the much tantalizing preview of all the nice new things brought to our favorite game. Naturally, I hit play with the seccond one... after a bit of a wait... what do I see? A nice dragon video, then the usual ones and then the old menu with the water mages. No new g3 ork menu... I hit new game... and gues what? No modifications... no new text... no new seeker guy next to Xardas... no skeleton guardians in front of Xardas's tower etc. You've got the picture...

Please... can you guis help me with this one? :scared:


EDIT: oh... and by the way... after each unsuccesfull attempt I uninstalled gothic 2 and reinstalled as well so... there's always been a cleen instal of gothic 2.

Hi Landros

§welcome

If your operating system is "Vista/Win7" run the GothicStarter.exe as "administrator" (right mouse button -> as administrator ...).

Landros
06.06.2011, 23:10
Thank you very much for the warm welcome! :)

and regarding to your reply... my windows is a plain old XP SP3 ProPerformance.

EDIT: I did the "run as admin" thing and it still the same old problem. I select the "Returning" mod and it isn't actually anything. At the moment all I have are two G2-NOTR... one with english text and the other with german text... bouth having english audio...

Larisa
06.06.2011, 23:47
Just out of curiosity I installed it too. XP SP3. Works perfectly.

My steps. I already had a G2 + NotR + 2.6(fix)exe + starter + several mods.
So, I installed the minimal mdk, the update to mdk, the starter again.
Then returning 1.0 (I chose the last option) it did its things with vdfs and unpacking ogg files. Then returning 1.1 (again last option). Then the PEP. Launched the starter. The only thing in russian is the intro voice. The rest in En (unfortunately, an unusable English).

Landros
07.06.2011, 06:14
that's exactly what I did as well...I perfected this installation on the fourth try out... :scared: I always chose the seccond option as well... I'm really gettind dumbfounded here... §gnah

the starter is the 2.6a downloaded on the world of gothic download section right? sorry... stupid question...

is there any way that I can make the PEP work with the EXE version of the mod? as THAT one worked flawlessly... the main problem I can see is that the EXE version has no "RETURNING_mod.vdf" nor a "RETURNING_mod.ini"...

of course... my knowledge regarding gothic 2 modding is the equivalent of a dumb beetle trying to sing We Will Rock You so... what I CAN see is practicly irrelevant

EDIT: I'll be doing it again... the sixth time... perhaps this will be it... or not


EDIT 2 "THE SOLUTION!!!": It's all because of the pseudoenglish patch... Actualy because of adding the additional line on the VDF section of the ini file (VDF=RETURNING_mod.mod Returning11_pseudoenglish_08.mod)
Once I deleted it it worked perfectly... but that doesn't help me at all... as I couldn't speack russian to save my life... is there a fix or something? please?

Copy the PEP file to ".\gothic II\data" and change the file name from "Returning11_pseudoenglish_08.mod" to "Returning11_pseudoenglish_08.vdf".
Now start the game directly with Gothic2.exe.

@Lonewolf: I installed with 2.5 thing, and the mod worked finnaly. I've done like I said to DArkI know that there are problems with unpacking the ogg files & creating the new Mod-file. Also works the update on version 1.1 not correctly with GothicVDFS v2.5.

If you beat an opponent in this mod with a sharp weapon (f.e.Sword) he will be killed without a special killing move. So use in duels with Fellan, Moe, Alrik or Buster only a weapon without sharp damage, f.e. a club or heavy stick. This is not a bug but a feature of this mod:D.
At the beginning of this mod it is highly recommended, to fight with magic or with the bow. You can get a quite good bow, if you become apprentice at Bosper and you can learn to create arrows from Niclas (near the lighthouse).
This mod is very good, if you feel boring with the normal G2notr.:p

1. Gritta is in the small wood, where you can hunt with Bartok

2. You have 2 ways to join the guild of the assassins. By trying this save often and save different, because it is very easy to fail, if you give a wrong answer.
The first way
is during the quest "task Gallakhada". You ask Gerbrandt for work und get the quest "meeting in a tavern". After return to Gerbrandt ask him, who was the stranger in the tavern. He tell you, not to sleep the next night and take a look at midnight behind the house of the paladins. If you do so you will see there a fight between the stranger and Wambo. The stranger wins. If you ask now the stranger (Asmal) and take the right options you can join the guild of assassins.
The second way
is possible, by the second task from Lord Andre "guild of murderers in Khorinise". This way is only possible, if the guild of thieves are still alive. Ask Cassia, then Ramirez, go to Gillian (member of the band) and so on.

03.07.2011, 09:28
Thanks man with you'r answers, i will try the first way because the second way sound less exp then the first...

And that quest with Cassia told me that an important bowl from an 'Ore Baron' is an a valley but the valley is in russian language. Can you give me the location of the bowl ?

And that quest with Cassia told me that an important bowl from an 'Ore Baron' is an a valley but the valley is in russian language. Can you give me the location of the bowl ?

1. Asmal Because chances of confusion because the day is, here's an example: If you spoke with Gillian at the 10th day, you have to be there at day 12 in the period from 00:00 - to 04:00.

The meeting point is the house at the pier near the ship of the paladins.There you'll meet then Asmal and the rest of the assassins guild. Asmal is identical with Gillian and the stranger from Orlan's tavern. Save your game at this place. You can ask Asmal if he takes you into the guild killer. Asmal asking you for your reasons for incorrect answers you will be attacked from the whole guild. If you do everything right, you can join and get your first Order.

Asmal You can also say that you have come on behalf of Lord Andre to kill him. If you have Asmal said that you are coming from Ramirez, Asmal is angry on the thieves guild. If the members of the Thieves Guild are alive, they are killed. Then you were attacked by the entire guild killer. Have fun.:p

2. Cassia

The place of the bowl is
in the storage room of the castle
the complete solution
Cassia has, besides the blood chalices yet another job for you. You should get her out of the bowll in the castle in the Valley of Mines.

You should best do this quest together with the 4. quest of the guild of traders Antiquity / Antiques, as you must in the storage room of the castle. You will receive instructions in the castle. Cliff tells you that the bowl is locked in a room in a warehouse. The key for the warehouse has lost Engor. The key for the room in the warehouse or Parcival Oric should have. Milten, you learn that Engor has lost the key to the warehouse for some fresh air.

Here you will find the key.

Key to the warehouse: to the roof at the main gate
Key in the warehouse: you have to steal from Parcival

The bowl is in the chest in a separate room of the warehouse. If you give them Cassia, you get 750 EXP and can choose a reward.

I have taken the solutions with a little help from the google translator from the 2.post of the german translation project from the very detailed "Biesterkillers Questhilfen (Questguides)"

1. If you was too late on the meeting with the guild of murders (the right time was only between 00.00 and 04.00) i fear, that you have failed.
The first quest from Asmal should be, to kill Wambo.
I habe joined the guild by the other way, so i dont know the consequence.
2. Constantino asks for a strong poison, because he plan to killIgnaz. You will find the poison in the hidden destillery of Vino in the wood behind the lighthouse. But if you will keep Ignaz as a trader, give Contantino the poison in the 5. chapter
3.The key is in the inventory ofthe deathknight Inubis, in the crypt behind Onars farm

I searched for him at chapter 5 but couldn't find him. Is it something about being late at chapter 5, or maybe because I gave the 4 elemental stones at the Golden Dragon and this Quest is canceled (still at active Quests)? Can Someone help please :)

If you go to the bridge from Akil's farm turn left and climb up the rock. Then run in the direction of the small group collectors of swamp weed from the sect camp and half on the way you will find Tegon

As I have read in an other thread the modders have used content from other gothic mods and these chests are from the russian "Global Mod"(?) where they are important in a questline.
There is only a chest in the new camp which becomes important in the 7th chapter.

It is well enough, to play the game if you cannot speak russian :p
But ensure to use the newest version of the PEP from this (http://forum.worldofplayers.de/forum/threads/923915-Gothic-II-Die-R%C3%BCckkehr-Hilfe-Info-und-Diskussionsthread-23?p=15138222&viewfull=1#post15138222) post.
The PEP includes also a lot of small bugfixes.

Ok i will give it a try. Thanks for the link. I hope i will be able to install it properly.

Edit: i allready encounter a problem. I'm not allowed to install the 2.6 modkit. I can run the installer, but at the point of choosing the correct diretory, i can't go any further. Any ideas?

So basicly my problem is i can't change the version of gothic 2 (2.7 eng) to 2.6 fix.(German) I'm not allowed to click the install button. This way i will never be able to even install the mod. Does anybody know how to get around this problem? And why is this anyway? Just because the two languages differ?

Use the report version of the g2.exe:
http://www.worldofgothic.de/dl/download_278.htm

You could manually unzip and copy the exe out of the archive if it cannot be installed directly.

Hey thanks I got around that problem. But i couldn't get the game running, i installed it the way i should have, but it won't work. If you choose the second option, the game should start with the gothic starter right? But no gothic starter for me. However, there is a possibility to uninstall the starter, so my guess is i installed it correctly. I'm kind of confused now, but maybe you know what to do.

@ DragonHunter123:
What version of Returning mod installation do you have: EXE or MOD?
- EXE version not requires Gothic 2 Report Version and Gothic 2 Player Kit installations because it replaces original file Gothic2.exe with own one and not allows other mods management.
- MOD version allows managing other mods and can be started via Gothic 2 Player Kit (http://www.bendlins.de/nico/gothic2/gothic2_playerkit-2.6f.exe) only.

Well i uninstalled everything now. I installed the game with the second option, so my guess is i installed the mod version. But i really don't care witch version i use, as long as it works. Could you tell me witch things i have to install to play the exe version? I read the topic several times, but im not that good with these things.

I have another question. What files should the Pseudo English Patch rar file contain? I have 2 files, a readme and a mod file. Is this correct?

Thanks in advance

the type of the file is absolutely differente, then yes the .exe contains the .mod but it's not the same file, then i don't want to install it before playing..

It's strange that the mod version won't work, i must be doing something wrong. Starting to get rather agitated now :mad:
