RE-ACT and the English Patch

Unread postby Black Raven » June 3rd, 2004, 2:56 pm

Before I go and locate a place to buy RE-ACT, I was wondering if I should uninstall my current MeltyBlood and re install the un-patched version?

Just because I don't want to cause any odd errors or screw-ups when install the game. Xev, anyone have an opinion on this?

ReACT will not work on the patched Melty Blood. You'll need to install Melty Blood unpatched for it to work.

I actually installed React to a separate folder, then moved all the important bits from that folder into the normal MB folder, then ran the game off of windows explorer. Skips the registry check and goes straight to running the game, apparently in my case.

Hmm, okay. I didn't actually try installing mine over the English patch, someone in the IRC channel said it didn't work, so sorry about that.

Yes, I believe MBR is performing some sort of crc check on MB.exe to make sure its okay, then it runs. I actually was able to install ReACT using the installation program this weekend at a LAN party. I installed ReACT onto NuAngel?s machine, which was running Windows 2000, and the installation program for ReACT didn?t feed me a line of crap like it does under XP (no idea why yet). I?m going to write a guide to installation ReACT for Windows XP, then 2000, then perhaps Windows 9x (English editions).

For now, do not replace the mb.exe with any English mb.exe. I will have to change the patch distro strategy, and start including ?English at the end to fix this issue.

Oh well, I kind of expected that you would have to re-release a patch for Re.Act so luckly I made backups before I updated to your english version. XD

Just a thought. Maybe you could give some "worthless" update notices now and then. Maybe some fun facts or things that happened during the work and the current beta testing. Maybe some stuff about the team or how you came to work with this stuff. I'm sure it would stimulate the forums and decrease the amount of threads about when the patch will be done ^^
