    Question for Korianous: I been playing (almost done) a game with HOP that I've enjoyed very much. I checked the readme in 1.0a and it seems like the alternate balance part is pretty much the HOP additions. Is this true? Would there a noticeable difference between the two? TIA

    Alternative Balancing has scaled back the enormous XP gains from HoP, and the rebalancing is done in a bit more sensible manner. It doesn't cater as much to powergaming as HoP did. The monsters have been also rebalanced more thoughtfully, instead of incredibly tough, like HoP, many will have unique strengths and weaknesses. IE, some enemies may be completely unaffected by arrows, but incredibly vulnerable to blunt weapons. You'll just have to play to see .

    @Fragonard- Sounds great, let us know if you have any problems .

    @Niborius- We've fixed most existing bugs, and enhanced most features, Gothic II Gold wasn't an incredibly buggy game to begin with, so we didn't have too much to fix, so much as stuff we could improve on.

    Right now, we're pretty satisfied with how the patch has turned out, Optimization work is difficult to do via code injection, and judging as how we have no access to the original ZenGine source code, we're trying to look into other ways of fixing these things.

    So, idk if there will be any future patches, any further corrections we do would just be nitpicking.

    We still do have plans to fix Gothic 1, but for Gothic 1 we're trying to make one patch that does everything we want it to, with no need for any supplemental patches. We'll have more news on it soon .

    *facepalm* Then I strongly suggest you get a copy. Piracy is not tolerated here, take that as an official warning!

    @osmiumbin- That's really for you to decide . I'd say it's around the same, perhaps slightly tougher.

    Hello.

    I've just installed Gothic 2 Gold (the GoG version) and afterward, i've installed the full ICP 1.0a.
    The problem is that while i have the patch modifications in the game (starting 40 HP, tougher young wolves, etc) i don't have the alternative balancing (when i tell Xardas about the old stone tablet, with AB, i should get 250 XP and i only get 50).I have checked my Data folder and the Alternative_Balancing.vdf is there.
    Any advice?Thanks.

    The XP cap was reimplemented prior to release, because it's removal unbalanced the game a bit too much. Guess we forgot to take it out of the Readme.

    So I installed Gothic 2 over again and applied the patch without the alternative balancing system. (I will play it with that feature later).

    You said that Vatras' german line is fixed in this patch, (When he says "good, let us samurize" (sorry if it's spelled wrong lol)) but it seems the patch is not installed correctly, since I can still see the german text.

    I tried it over again but it's still the same result.

    Do you have any ideas?

    Thanks!

    Hmm, go to your Gothic II folder, head to the following directory:

    "_work/Data/Scripts/Content/Cutscene"

    Are there files named ou.dat/ou.lsc? Rename these files by adding a .bak extension to them or something. Then start a new game and you should see the changes.

    Thanks for your response.

    I did that but now I don't have any dialogues at all.
    FYI I do have a legal version of Gothic 2.

    Is it maybe a bug in the installer?

    Is there still an ou.bin file? It should be parsing that file instead. If it's not, simply replace the ou.dat file with the ou.bin file (rename it ou.dat). Let me know if that works.
