First fix for PK++

Ive had a lot of people let me know about the game crashing on game mode TDM, and it has been fixed. Please run the “Update PK++ Mod” shortcut on your desktop, or in painkiller/bin/ , and it will download the fix.

Then just start up Painkiller, and play. 🙂

*Update*

As of 4:41am GMT (UK Time) there has been a new update. Console commands were locked, so I unlocked them, just run the “Update PK++ Mod” shortcut on your desktop or in painkiller/bin/, and it will automatically download.

  1. Very nice implimentation of the steamfish idea. That’s awesome.

    Mod looks nice, up to par and beyond the minimod now 😉

  2. This mod has just ruined it totally!

    My fps i now 67 – before this CPL Edition, I got 125 (max).
    I cant place the timer in the middle, and I cant remove the ammolist. Which I want!

    I cant stop lagging around, even though I have 49 ping.

  3. I have reinstalled the mod 3 times now, due to that I cant remove these things.

    That mean, I didnt fucked it up.

    My internet connection is 256/128 – I know this i bad, but still, if my ping i 49.. Im not supposed to lagg.

    I have Ati Radeon x600 with 256MB. And a brand new 3GHz p4 processor with HT.

    So therefor I cant figure out, why my fps is 85 now. I have taken vsync off, and my screen Hz at max!

  4. ‘what if i don’t have internet access? can’t update? =/’

    How could you download a patch if you don’t have any internet access? And how are you here if so? 🙂

  5. This mod is indeed nice but I prefer minimod as it’s not stealing my fps. I dunno what’s the problem but I have 220-300 fps with vanilla PK or MiniMod but when i turn on PK++ i get 180-250 (even during fps loss at Psycho when a gun is dropped on railings I have 60-70 fps with vanilla PK and only 40-50 with PK++). But that’s not the problem. The thing that annoys is that when i use this mod i randomy skipp frames 🙁

    Maybe it happens to me only but anywas, great job guys !

  6. “How could you download a patch if you don’t have any internet access? And how are you here if so? :)”

    just asking if there’s a .rar or smthing that includes the mod changes 😉

  7. This mod is great. Especially the auto updater was a very nice detail added. Feels all a little more produced and everyone can be on the same page now.

    I could give 5 chodes less about menu backgrounds.

  8. re silas: i’ve noticed sometimes random fps drops in minimod and pure vanilla PK too… it’s just a old good bug with fps, especially when many players on the server…

  9. Maniax 1 problem: for those of who connect through hlsw because u have 2 versions, vanilla pk and pk ++ we now cant connect to servers with pk++ version because its all run through the same pk.exe file. Any chance u can scrap the vanilla pk option? 😛 who needs it anyway!!!!!!!!!!!!

  10. there should really be an uninstall exe with this mod, bit lame replacing ur pk.exe ect and not giving you a backup if you dont want pk++ anymore, I dont really want to reinstall it all again.

  11. I miss the feature to place the hud items on whatever position i want. I can only choose beetween left, center and right now, and I dont even have that ability with all items.
    The steamfish is a pretty nice idea tho.

    acelethal, can you explain how you did it for the rest of us? I doubt jabb0r will be happy if everyone is gonna query him 😛

  12. ‘there should really be an uninstall exe with this mod, bit lame replacing ur pk.exe ect and not giving you a backup if you dont want pk++ anymore, I dont really want to reinstall it all again.’

    Looking at it there’s no files being replaced with unofficial versions, it’s a proper mod, not a loader.lua/lscripts hack. Uninstall would just involve deleting the shortcuts.

  13. a feature i miss from yar minimod is the + or – score next to the 2 score icons in bottom right. Sometimes you forget if you the blue or the red one.

  14. ouch, i get some serious fps loose with this mod, removed it and went back to yar’s , looks sweet but screws my pk up…

  15. “Looking at it there’s no files being replaced with unofficial versions, it’s a proper mod, not a loader.lua/lscripts hack.”

    That just became possible with patch 1.6.1. Else it had to be another loader.lua-hack-mod, so there’s really no point in that.

    “Uninstall would just involve deleting the shortcuts.”

    I don’t think so. I should be a matter of course to include an uninstaller that removes all files of the mod and maybe even is capable of fixing the files that have been altered (config!). Especially if an app has a professional claim (installer, internet updater etc. – but no uninstaller? come on).

  16. I have seen the fps issue, and we have found what it is. There will be a couple of fixes released through steamfish today.

    You should run steamfish twice today, as we’ve updated the actual exe now to create shortcuts on your desktop. (it seems the installer wouldn’t place shortcuts on non-english windows).

  17. That just became possible with patch 1.6.1. Else it had to be another loader.lua-hack-mod, so there’s really no point in that.

    If it wasn’t for this mod, PCF wouldn’t of even added it to 1.61.

    Secondly, there’s not much we can do about the GUI gfx, as it’s for the CPL. The whole idea of rleasing this mod to everyone with steamfish is to fix bugs, so it’s stable for CPL Turkey.

  18. I like it. Good improvement over the previous version. Props to Yar for getting us here, but minimod isn’t being supported to the same level. I tried installing 1.61 minimod after a fresh reinstall of PK, and I still got the same 3 errors noted in “bugs”. So I installed PK++ instead for 1.61 (latest version). PK++ works perfectly (as far as I can tell), I like the interface just fine, count “down” timer, and no cd is just gravy. As far as I’m concerned, it should be standard equipment.

  19. for all of those using some game browsing tool (eg all seeing eye):

    place a file pk.bat in painkiller/bin/
    with this content:
    Painkiller.exe -lscripts pkplus.pak %1 %2 %3 %4 %5 %6

    after that point ase to that batch file instead of the original exe

  20. At work…

    When PCF releases a new patch, what procedure is necessary to get the mod and the game both running up to speed again? We won’t have to uninstall the entire game and start over again will if and when PCF releases a new patch?

  21. When the new patch comes, just install the patch as normal. We will then make a post saying to run steamfish the same day, which will make our mod compatible with it.

  22. for my ASE all I did was right click pk6++ icon path is “C:\Program Files\DreamCatcher\Painkiller\Bin\Painkiller.exe” -lscripts pkplus.pak, the then just copied that path into the painiller ASE directory so that ASE uses that for launching works fine.

  23. i got a question i got the updates yesterday, ut today when i go to update to see if there is any it says, a thing pops up saying create dekstop icons for painkiller shortcuts. i clearly allready have them on desktop. is this normal because there are no new updates?

  24. it will ask you every time, for people who have installed it for the first time. If you already have the shortcuts, just press no.

  25. PK++ v03 – good job

    But i have fps-problem with this mod. When i play vanilla pk, i got 125fps.

    In new version add please: pickupItemText and crosshairnames.

  26. Why is the score tab so small? Who can read this 2 little numbers?

    Another thing. Can you change the hitsound? Its terrible 😉
    But overall a great improvement. keep it up!

  27. ob3n – extract files to “/data” in your PK folder.
    Laust – minimod is smaller, probably faster and has more configuration options than pk++, and pk++ has steamfish – map+mod updater and it’s official cpl mod. Check readme files in both mods if you want more detailed comparison.

  28. i like the minimod a lot!
    thx 4 it!
    its is great that i was able 2 download it the day i downloaded the patch.
    thx again

  29. What is the command to activate the hitsound and killsound in PK using minimod? I can not find it and I really want it 🙁

  30. For the next release, could u make a crosshair name and simple items or it’s not possible ???
    Gg yar MiniMod rulez! =D

  31. I know, there is some files just specific for PK++. And it’s easier just to delete them instead. I dont wanna reinstall it all, takes to much of my expensive time! 😀

    Well, if thats the only way out of PK++, I reinstall.. IT ALL 🙁

  32. U can delete specific Pk++ files but the noCd stay in ur reg. However reinstall it’s a good choice… Make as you want 😉
