[REL] Patchfix for Fanpatch 1.17 (v1.17c)
« on: 20 November 2017, 13:21:05 »
Alright, in case there are still some people running only old IT, here's my patchfix thread from the old forums (posted in 2012...geez, has it really been 5 years?):

Hi there,

2 months ago I came across the buglist thread for the Fanpatch 1.17. As I saw that there weren't any people left working on a Fanpatch 1.18 to fix the remaining issues, I decided to try and implement most fixes reported there.

Today I can finally present to you the outcome of my work: The Patchfix for 1.17

First off, this is still not tested on a wide scope of installations. You shouldn't run into problems though. Just test it and report back here If something goes wrong, you can always revert to your backup files (for instructions on which files to backup, see the Readme), but nevertheless USE AT YOUR OWN RISK! (and read the Readme )

IMPORTANT! This Fix requires an installed Fanpatch 1.17!

Patchfix + CameraMod (over @ (German)) //included in 1.17c!

For a complete list of fixes, see the attached fixes.txt

Have fun,
~ spectre

Thank God for!

I'd like to ask about the details of the RNG fix option included in this patch. I understand the details got lost when the old forums shut down so I have to ask here.

Does it just fix the issues with the random seed or does it also affect anything else? I am still not sure if I want to use it or not. Is there any reason I might not want the RNG fix? Does the RNG fix have any negatives at all? And how does it change the drops compared to vanilla?

Also one more question:
If I use the uninstall option in the installer, I assume it returns to the original 1.17 fanpatch? Just asking to be sure.
