I have recently been directed to the Hope and Despair server and am enjoying it immensely. Looks like there is a lot to see and do.
I first tried logging in using a native linux install with 1.69 HotU patch and CEP version 2.3.
I was booted with the message that I needed cep22-v1.tlk. Downloading that talk file allowed me to log in and explore many places without a problem, but recently upon entering the dark caverns one level below the ghoul cave near the despair ruins the game repeatedly crashed.
New character works fine and I suspect on reset the old one will too. I suspect there is a missing CEP tile or complete tileset or something causing the crash.
It would be helpful to know which CEP version is currently being used by Hope and Despair so I can just back up my existing folders and run the version compatible with the mod.
Could we please have a stickied post in the Server Information section recommending a CEP version?
I am currently downloading CEP 2.4a and will see what it does. I will report back here on this thread.
