Telepath RPG: Servants of God v 1.812 Patch

Telepath RPG: Servants of God has been patched to version 1.812. This newest patch does all of the following:

–fixed all of the voice-over dialog that wasn’t working the initial release.
–fixed problems in two of the conversations with the Ravinale librarian.
–fixed a bug that occurs when scanning a certain assassin in the Order of the Black Rose.
–added new dialog with Arman, conditional on the player learning certain things about him.
–made the first battle in Crypt 1 more challenging.
–the player now spawns in the correct spot after beating Crypt 1.
–fixed a bug in Crypt 3 that would cause the game to skip over two of the puzzles.
–fixed a bug where the crystal orb would disappear once unequipped.
–fixed a collision issue with a treasure chest in a cave in the The Great Forest.
–made enemy hearts display the correct color when the info button is pressed.
–improved the user interface for changing orbs and managing attacks.
–provided better in-game explanations at the start of the game of what the stats are, and of the differences between difficulty levels.
–Alissa now appears at Ravinale HQ if you recruit her prior to acquiring the desert hideout.
–fixed a cosmetic issue in the Ravinale library.
–boosted the difficulty of the final suite of battles somewhat.
–easy difficulty now starts the player with 25 soul charges instead of 20.
–starting a New Game+ after beating the game on Brutal difficulty now keeps the game set to Brutal.

To get the patch, just download the game again and run the installer, then click Replace when it prompts you to do so. It won’t affect your saved games.

Weirdly, the game now supports more voice-overs than I can actually fit into the AIR installer. For now, the excess voice-overs are contained in a separate zip file, available here. Just unzip it into the game’s install folder to get whatever voice-overs aren’t installed automatically by AIR.

    Nice thanks for the fixes although being resistant to physical attacks was good i was afraid of losing it by un-equiping it for the green or yellow orb in easier fights where damage wasnt an issue.

    When I talk to Arman and try to access the new dialog, the menu shows me two options to say something, but clicking either of them does not continue the conversation. Since the conversation can’t be exited, the game is essentially frozen. This happens after going through the “Tell me about you” dialog, then

    (SPOILER) Mentioning that it’s not what you heard at the Black Rose HQ, and asking Arman if he lied to you. I also revived him after he died at mission 4(which oddly added no dialog to anyone), so maybe that has something to do with it. (SPOILER END).

    I don’t know if part of the update was to fix whatever problem I’m having, but I still can’t open the game with this newest version.

  • CraigStern

     Send me an email with the details of what’s happening and I’ll see if I can figure out the problem.

    How does one back up saves? Despite your reassurances, I just want to be safe, since the last update destroyed my saves.

  • CraigStern

     You can find your saved games using the method outlined in this thread: http://sinisterdesign.net/forum/index.php?topic=357.0

    Then just make a copy of them and save them somewhere safe.

    That, uh, doesn’t seem to work. Even with “show hidden files” enabled, searching for “TelepathRPG3*.sol” and the like don’t turn up anything. Does the Adobe version save things differently?

  • Fool

    Ah, nevermind, found it! They’re in the same folder, but have different names. You may want to update the thread to reflect that.

  • Fool

    …And now it’s giving me the “I can’t install, it’s already installed here!” error message, even though it installed the previous patch just fine. I have the latest version of AIR and everything. What is going on?

  • CraigStern

    Really? That’s no good. :S I honestly don’t know why it would have started doing that again. Sorry about that. Just make sure to back up your saved games!
