A Master Thief and Associate

Monday, August 29th, 2011

Created some new outfits for GotR this morning. The two new Lupin ones were designed by masayumemasa with a couple of small tweaks from me.

Lupin seemed kind of lonely so I threw together a Jigen one as well.

Colorable Hounfor

Monday, August 29th, 2011

I fixed the Hounfor (General’s Limo) so that the body can now be painted at the mechanic. Up until now, it couldn’t be changed from the default Samedi green.

You can grab the source here if you want to add it in yourself, or simply wait for the next release of GotR.

Gamersgate fixes German version keys?!

Sunday, August 28th, 2011

Apparently Gamersgate has worked things out with Volition and their new keys install the uncensored English version of SR2 on Steam instead of the terrible censored and incompatible German version! Gamersgate customers can now finally update to the official v1.2 patch on Steam which fixes some major performance, AI, and resolution issues, and also enables coop with Steam SR2 players.

Users who previously bought the game from Gamersgate are reporting that they can now login to their account there and get a brand new uncensored English SR2 Steam key to activate. You may need to contact Steam support and have them remove the German version from your account first if you’ve already activated it.

More details in the Gamersgate thread on the Steam Saints Row 2 forum.

Kudos to Gamersgate and Volition for finally making this happen!

GotR Updates

Friday, August 26th, 2011

After taking a bit of a break, I got back into the swing of SR2 modding this week. In addition to making some progress on a mod to eliminate all the popup tutorials, I also finished integrating these items into GotR b16:

Hulk Hogan outfit added (design by masayumemasa and code by me) and a new Hulkamania logo.

Selectable Wardrobe Colors v2 as an optional mod

Leather versions of the Trenchcoat and Sports Letter Jacket by RedRage

FOV mod by encogen as an optional mod

Gat Homie now wears his trial suit by RedRage as an optional mod

Fixed the villain and misc homie packs so they no longer cause problems with story missions

Fixed both DLC missions so they now start correctly from all clipboards for replay

Zombie Mask and Traffic Cone hat added for sale in the open pricing optional mod

The beretta (vice 9) is now using the larger black cutscene mesh (part of the original RedRage weapon pack)

Selectable Wardrobe Colors Mod v2

Wednesday, August 24th, 2011

I’ve updated the previous version of the Selectable Wardrobe Colors mod with an updated v2. This new release fixes a bug where you could no longer color clothes at the store. Everything now works correctly and allows you to color clothes and choose logos both in the store and the wardrobe.

This mod will be included as an optional mod with the next beta release of GotR. In the meantime you can grab the new fixed v2 here.

Return of the Jedi

Just when you think you’re ready for 11/15 , Volition shows us hover bikes.

There are simply no words other than: THANK YOU VOLITION.

Increased FOV Mod

Tuesday, August 2nd, 2011

Encogen is working on an increased FOV mod, and has a test version uploaded.

He would really love some feedback, so please leave any comments and suggestions here on this post for him.

Also, there seems to be a bug with the wardrobe clothing color mod I released the other day where stores no longer let you color items or select logos. I have an idea why that happened and will look into a fix for it soon.
