stonehenge and abyss are working

"Wart’s new Elite encounter
A new enemy, “The Butcher’s Imp”, has been added to the game, and will always be found in Elite Passageways. Generous loot aside, this enemy has a 50% chance to drop a “piece of gold” item. Using 50 of those alongside Wart’s Peg Leg will allow you to craft one of the following in the Cube:

Wart’s Peg Leg of Legend
Wart’s Wicked Gear
Wart’s Affirmatron
The recipes for these items are hidden, and will only produce the item that is usable by the crafting character’s faction. These items will scale to the crafting character’s level."

are working you can find the 1 gold piece but i have not enougth to complete this

and i mean the easter event was on sp too

After this update, Reanimator no longer correctly recognize the game IDX files, so I just simply changed the timestamps of the data files for April update, to match the June update. Compatibility issue unknown.

how do you install this? The launcher doesn't recognize the folder as a mod.

Hi there I really waited too much time for this mod. But it seems I am late a bit. Because it seems new patch released for 2038. And now I am trying to launch single player game it's freezing at loading screen. What is the reasoon of that ? 2038 and mod versions are mismatching ? Or something like that ? What can I do for that. I really want to play with that 2038 as single player because I had horrible lag and DC stuff when I am online.

Be sure A clean and normal functional Multiplayer Game London-2038-client install is required. If you can't even enter the multiplayer environment properly, troubleshoot first. Then simply keep the "IWantSPandDontCareIfItBreaks .txt" without other MOD files to enable Single-Player Game mode Only(Before this step, please backup your game save archive. The original London-2038-client without patch will damage your SP MOD save archive), This is a built-in function of the game client, independent of SP MOD.

So... Here's an update on this with some important information.

With the latest patch (1.5.7b) of Hellgate London, we have decided to remove the "Single-Player Game" entry from the main menu by default. We want to make it crystal clear that the 2038 team is focused on and dedicated to the multiplayer game. We have neither time nor resources to support single player mode, so if any problems arise you're on your own.

However, we'll play along nice and don't want to trainwreck mods like this completely. So we've come up with a way for players to actively "opt in" for getting the SP button back.

This requires you to place a file with specific name and content into your Data\ folder. The file is named IWantSPandDontCareIfItBreaks.txt (case doesn't matter on Windows filesystems), and it must contain the text
Quote
I fully understand that single player is not supported by the London 2038 team. So let there be dragons.

For convenience, you can use the file that is attached to this post.
Regards, NiteHawk

if you can enter Single-Player Game normally, add other SP MOD files.

So far this year, I Checked the Current SP MOD Works Fine with all knowing releases.

PATCH v1.5.10b build b83bf56b (Release Date: 06/05/2022)
PATCH v1.5.11b build 76c5333b (Release Date: 08/08/2022)
PATCH v1.5.11b build 25606fcf (Release Date: 09/05/2022)

If the version is lower than PATCH v1.5.10b, SP MOD will upgrade your London-2038-client version at the same time and have all functions of this version. You can install client updates for online games at any time, this does not affect your used SP MOD, but most of the new content(higher than PATCH v1.5.10b) will be not take effect.

Now there is no way to unpack the idx/dat file after patch v1.5.10b, The work could not be continued. and at the same time, my laptop was attacked by virus, I lost all related dev tools and original documents, and SP modification stopped updating indefinitely.

Just only copy-paste the mp_hellgate.idx and mp_hellgate.dat from the SP modification patch into the game data folder, keep and run the game with the v1.5.15b executable file.

Is this a joke? Did you really waste your time to implement this to just hide the SP Mode? Wow...
Don't you think, it would have been smarter to let this option open for the future since the Hellgate player base is shrinking constantly. Not everybody can play London: 2038 because of a bad ping, lag and disconnects. Some retro players and ofc Hellgate lovers like me could also enjoy the "full" content of this game in singleplayer at least. So let there be smarter dragons ;). Don't get me wrong, I really appreciate your work on the London: 2038 mod and am very grateful, but I don't like this somewhat condescending attitude from what I read above to be honest. Kinda unnecessary to implement this to point out that London: 2038 is multiplayer only and there won't be any support for singleplayer. I think we all knew that already. But it's still kinda sad.

@contra:
So the SP modification isn't working anymore? We can't use an older version of London 2038 to make it run with the SP mod Version 1.5.10b? Sorry for asking, I am still pretty new to this whole installation process, and have more questions than answers atm.

BTW since you wrote that your data and important tools on your laptop were destroyed by a virus - I'm very sorry man for that loss. I hope your laptop wasn't infected because of the following:

I found out that every old link of the domains "hellgateaus . net/info" is full of badware, trojans and viruses. Those domains are literally virus catapults. So be cautious! And what comes next is a serious WARNING. DON'T click on the download link or unpack the password protected FAKE release.rar Hellgate London Savegame Editor if you are searching for one on the internet and you come across this post under that web address at the buttom of my post. This is a dangerous trojan (Trojan:Win32/Sabsik.FL.B!ml) for 100 %. I will just post the site here, it seems legit in the first moment because the post comes from a google group but it is 100 % hostile. I have already reported it to google. BTW there is probably no real savegame editor from what I have read.

DON'T DOWNLOAD THIS FAKE HELLGATE SAVEGAME EDITOR FILE IN THIS LINK! IT'S A TROJAN:

Hi Dirk, welcome.

Now, I'm not sure where you identified a "condescending attitude". The part of Nitehawk's quote you omitted clarifies that "we'll play along nice and don't want to trainwreck mods like this completely[, so] we've come up with a way for players to actively "opt in" for getting the SP button back". There's no condescension here; we had to solve a problem on our end, but we also decided to make a practical concession for the benefit of players.
What happened was that we had players seeking support for 2038 SP or expecting stability, which we could not provide. Here you can see that "the option of SP was more or less a "hack" within the MP client, and it was confusing to have that option there". That confusion was, largely, the impression that we support SP in the way FSS intended to; balance, support, stability, what have you. We do not have the resources or manpower to do so, but SP clearly has an audience, so that's the middle ground we went with.
Lastly,
Don't you think, it would have been smarter to let this option open for the future since the Hellgate player base is shrinking constantly.
Leaving the option open would, for one, not solve the issues we were facing. Moreover, the only HG players who would have that option would be the ones who already know of 2038 and have reached its login screen to access its SP. These players can easily find this information on the project's Discord server (eg here is the relevant announcement) and elsewhere (eg here), so they're not deprived of it - they simply have to opt in, acknowledging that we cannot support it.

Thanks for the warm welcome Bryan!

I can understand this very well that you don't have the manpower to develope the multiplayer and singleplayer at the same time and answer all the questions and requests of players. London 2038 singleplayer would just be a dream come true for me. I was so excited by reading this thread for the first time and kinda got frustrated in the end of the thread yesterday, because this sp mod came to it's end. Sorry for my mood, I was trying to make it run for hours without success. Just frustrating.

The post of NiteHawk just gave me the rest. I was kinda tired and frustrated after many hours trying to make it work, when I read it. Removing/hiding the "Single-Player Game" button unnecessarily and making a text file with that name "IWantSPandDontCareIfItBreaks.txt" and the quote inside the file "I fully understand that single player is not supported by the London 2038 team. So let there be dragons." felt like a disclaimer and a harbinger that it won't work in the near future anymore for me, which unfortunately happened now. It took away my hope.

You posted a discord channel, but I can't join it or I do not have access to it. It says "No text channels" etc..

And thank you again, you are doing an excellent job developing London 2038!

Kind regards
Dirk

Perfectly understandable, no worries there. I mostly engaged to clear out any misunderstandings, since I do care about how the team's conduct is seen.
I can see how the file name and contents can be misinterpreted; they're both humorous, if anything, and that may not always come across. The "let there be dragons" phrase originates from "Here be dragons", and by memory the file name has a similar origin that escapes me at the moment. They both definitely didn't mean to suggest that we planned to disallow it in any way moving forward.
To be perfectly clear on that whole front, we're entirely fine with both the SP option and SP mods. For my part, I was extremely happy that the Australia dungeon, which is a homage to this very site, could find its way here. We'd never get in the way of that, since this is where we started and we consider 2038 a successor of all our efforts here.

The Discord link may not be showing its contents if you're not a member of the server, or perhaps if you're not assigned the Tester role (the bot for which may at times malfunction for some reason). If it's the former, you can follow this link to join. If it's the latter, kindly let me know and I can assign the role manually.
