No need I tested it myself and found no such problems. You might have been simply missing prerequsites.

Definitely had the pre-reqs(personal database, personal computer, researching, integrated devices)  Heck even had a whole lot of dependent stuff: slave AI, optronics, overcharge radar, brainer outfit...  but the tech itself did not show up as researchable and when I researched say, landmine, aye-phone would not come up.  I wonder if the algorithm determining available topics does some kind of pruning and may skip a tech if it sees something dependent on it first?

Damn it, then maybe there is something I don't realize... Sure, send that save, then. Not like you seem to need any help, but I might have made some error... Or don't realize something about the engine...

The STR_BASIC_ELECTRONICS tech is flagged as both needing and destroying item, which is why reseaching "electricity & electronics" never shows up as the item doesn't drop from any bad guy.

Argh, what a stupid mistake on my part! Thank you. It should have neither of these flags.

Do we need to add anything for the new Bounty Hunt missions?

And another question, will it be OK, if I replace it after few days of using the new update?
And yet another one, do we just replace all STR_SECTOID_CORPSE texts or just literaly this one and leave anything like STR_SECTOID_CORPSE_EXTRACTION unchanged?

This one, and nothing more. If you don't do it, not a biggie, only all Integrated Circuits you have will change into Sectoid Corpses that can be sold for $20k apiece.

So that's why I had suddenly 20 corpses. :-) Thanks. If it is not problém, I am not going to tinker with it and collect the integrated circuits anew.

First off, thank you Dioxine for this wonderful mod. I'm enjoying it immensely and look forward to all the new content being developed. :)

Are any modifications necessary to take a save file from 0.99G.1 to 0.99G.2? Do the new missions need to be added to the list in the file? Thanks!

Thanks a lot. And no, if there is nothing posted here, then it means nothing is needed.

Before upgrading from 99H1 to H2, use or lose your cannon magazines (the craft loot). Also, don't forget to disable Naughty Mod if you're using it (it has been merged into the main mod).
