Do I really need all these fixes?

    Hi,

    I begun to play PS:T first time. I installed official 1.1 path. Do I really need all other unofficial fixes or it is possible to play without them?

    Thanks

    It is very possible to play without them. Quite frankly, I trot the game out every couple of years and I never bother with anything other than the official patch.

    You don't need it but I would recommend Platter's fixpack as it eliminates a number of small but rather annoying bugs that weren't fixed in the official fixpack.

    So, is it right that without this fixes I can not use crossbow? If yes then can I fix only this bug?

    Thanks

    [​IMG] It's not a bug, there's only one character in the game that uses ranged weaponry that joins your party. There aren't any crossbows or bows in the game other than what that NPC comes with - without modification.

    Yes, but in fix it is said that this one character can not use crossbow without the fix.

    I've only installed the official patch and have never had a problem with that particular npc using crossbows. The patch is all that's needed (and yours may already be patched). I found no bugs in the game that detracted from the overall play.

    Apparently I was wrong. There is only "red color" in the fix's notes.

    Yea I think there was one crossbow that was shaded red as though it were unequippable, but it still worked.
