    It'll probably be one of the first 3 or so projects announced once totalconversion=1 works.

    Let's face facts, somebody already has one waiting in the wings.

    Hm. So I'm thinking that v1.05 isn't the most up to date. Can you upload the latest version here, too? Steam doesn't like me very much nowadays. D:

    Umm...sorry for necrobumping, but I can't seem to be able to install this mod. Every other mod I install works fine, but this one doesn't appear in the "Mods" in the launcher. Help!

    Capital letters in directories. Just unzip it into your mods directory and it should work fine.

    In a zip archive file names and directory names are case sensitive. Not so in a file system.

    I don't understand what I have to do.

    You know where your mods directory is?

    For Windows:
    XP and lower: documents and settings/<user name>/gaslamp games/dungeons of dredmor/mods
    Vista and 7: users/documents/gaslamp games/dungeons of dredmor/mods

    For Mac: username/Library/Application Support/Dungeons of Dredmor/Mods
    For Linux: $HOME/.local/share/Dredmor

    Take the zip archive file and extract it into the directory for your OS as indicated above. Then see if it shows in the mod loader after reloading the game. If not, I will try to help some more. (In the meantime I will try to fix the archive to work correctly, but that may be a lot more work than it sounds like. This is the easiest way to make it work.)

    Getting this one to work as a zip is going to be a major bitch. It mixes case between filenames and references in the XML to those file names. So every one has to be lowercased.

    Also a cursory run of the XML validator Glazed made shows additional errors that have to be fixed. And it crashes on start as I have it at the moment. It may work if unzipped, but for a while it will not be possible in a zip.

    Here. A visual aid to the problem. (I am still working on it.)

    To get it working correctly, I have to change each and every filename to all lowercase, and then change each reference to the filenames to match. It is easy, but takes some time.

    Partly fixed. But the remaining errors are beyond my knowledge to fix. It is playable at least. Anyone who knows more care to look at this?

    It is too big to just attach, so I put it on my Dropbox account.

    *Edit* The errors remaining seem mostly to be either something I do not understand about how the art for the skills is referenced or the absolute lack of art for the debug side of the skills. (I have a few more tasks to handle at the moment, but I think anyone who knows this stuff can fix or confirm it is fixed in a mere moment.)
  10. I've had problems with being unable to load the saves made with the hipsterology skill, and I've finally found how to fix it. Here it is:
