Okay, I checked a favorite old-games-site of mine and found the following two official mods that I never heard from before. Maybe someone of you can try them out…
About Renegade Storm:
The modder was Shadowmoses, who hosted xenus-hq.net and later the B2BFF site (Born to be Freeform).
Members at xenus-HQ were able to playtest Renegade Storm and several patches were made before the final version was released. So Just make sure if you play this that you have a fully patched version.
There were a couple of bugs, but none of them were gamebreakers. On the island where you had to collect the four heads, using the helicopter caused the game to crash.
I recall that it was a well made MOD with interesting missions. Thanks again to the Moses!
This is 1.2 which I got after the sites went down so it should be the last version. It was the only mod I could still find after the sites died.
RENEGADE STORM MOD FOR BOILING POINT
This is a MOD for Boiling Point: Road to Hell, made by ShadowMoses with the
unofficial English SDK. As far as I know this is the only playable Mod for BP. It is of a standard equal to the commercial quality of the original game, and was virtually bug-free. A highlight is ShadowMoses' original dialogue.
I really enjoyed replaying this, it looks so much better on my 2008 computer than
it did on my 2004 rig. Water reflections and object detail were great, especially for a 2005 game.
There are more than ten major quest missions.
Before you begin missions, you should start a 'New Game' of BP. Visit the editor to get Lisa's 'starter car'. Visit the police station cells to get an AK. Then go to the Black Jaguar Bar in Peurto Sombra and talk to the 'suspicious stranger' to kick off
ShadowMoses assumes you have already played the original game, so you are
granted all vehicle licences at the start.
Mission 1 Find Nuno Novais on his island. He gives most of the main missions.
Mission 2 "Rupture that Hernia". Kill Hernia and his mob, to eliminate any potential problems to Nuno's plans to take over Colom… er Realia.
Mission 3 Deliver a message to the mayor.
Mission 4 Bring Nuno the heads of the death squad members who attempted to assassinate him. This involves getting a password and breaking into the police computer. Many of the missions are 'time related' so you need to sleep in the motel or otherwise kill time. The heads of the death squad members weigh
5kg each, so manage your carry limit well.
Nuno gives you various weapons at the start of missions, eg FAMAS, Dragunov, grenade launcher (not necessary, but fun!) and there are a few pick-ups of assault rifles with 0% wear.
Mission 5 Free Lanael from jail. From the information you found in the police computer, Nuno's friend Lanael is still alive but in jail. Fortunately you don't
have to escort him out, which was a major pain in the original BP jail-break.
Mission 6 Rob the bank to fund Nuno's guerrilla war.
This is a first class mission. You can blow a hole in the back wall of the bank, but it is much more interesting to get the key to the vault by getting the bank girl drunk and marrying her in the church at Pablo Faro.
The money is heavy and you need to be holding all five cashboxes to seal the
Mission 7 Lanael gives a mission to get secret spy information from the doughnut guy. This is a well-crafted mission. You need to think!
Mission 8 Kill the Guerrilla leader.
Mission 9 Plant false documents. This is another great mission, and highlights the very cool dialogue ShadowMoses wrote: Saul threatens to overwrite the Hacker's Windows OS with Linux!
The forged documents lead the government to suspect an imminent Guerrilla attack.
Mission 10 Eliminate the government soldiers at the roadblocks into Peurto
Mission 11 Eliminate the police force and the police chief.
Mission 12 Escort the mayor to a jail cell. This escort mission went quite well, the mayor didn't get too hung up on furniture and civilians!
Mission 13 Celebrate with Nuno at the Black Jaguar.
Mission 14 What a great ending: visit the main square to see the statue Nuno commissioned to honour Saul!
Some important notes from the 'readme':
> installing the MOD closes off some of the original game's missions.
> some of the objective locations (red crosses) are on the slightly wrong
location, but it is obvious where you have to go.
> no background music
> Helicopter caused XP to freeze. (Maybe it's my computer.)
> one of the policemen in the 'eliminate police 'quest was invisible.
I may never play BP again. Or maybe I will. But I certainly enjoyed five nights this week replaying Renegade Storm. Good weapons, all vehicle licences, plenty of pesos, and cool missions. Thanks again SM!
About the two MODS wesp5 mentioned in the O.P. "The Legend Lives" is still available but the link for Great War (176Mb) which was part of the Xenus Gold package sold in Russia, is dead. If it wasn't released in the West, it is probably not localised in English anyway.
I just checked the links and they work so if people are having a hard time downloading it then I could upload it somewhere else. I haven't been able to try either mod but I did look through the resources.qrc file for both and they had English text in them.
Yes please guenthar, if you could upload the "Great War" for us.
I downloaded "The Legend Lives" OK but the site makes you wait wait wait for free d/l.
I decided to the "Great War" and patches into one archive and "The Legend Lives" and the patch into another archive. I am uploading them now and will update my post with them.
Thanks for the links guenthar … downloading now. :)
Playing Far Cry 3 I realized I missed Boiling Point quite a lot.
I was thinking to try Renegade Storm since I did not played it when it came out but the links are dead and can not find it anywhere….
Could someone upload it again
yeh,if anyone finds links for Renegade Storm or any other files.
please post them.
google always brings me here or adventurelegends :)
guenthar,your links go to a site that is blocked by eset antivirus,
it doesn't seem to go to multiupload selection.
i presume they are dead now.
If someone still has the Boiling Point mods and can point me to them, I can manage to get a permanent download link for them on The Patches Scrolls!
It'a worry ,how easy some mods and games can disappear from the internet.
Never to be seen again.
That's why archive sites are really important.
found this,it has a few mods/skins
Okay, Badmofo send me all the stuff he got and I uploaded the SDK, the four minor mods as a package and Renegade Storm to Moddb. They are currently awaiting authorisation. I will also upload them to The Patches Scrolls next week. Does anyone still have The Legend Lives and Big War? The links above want to install a download managerů
I deleted the links since the host doesn't exist anymore. I lost all of my files when my computer was stolen so don't have access to them anymore. If anyone else downloaded them could you upload them somewhere?
Okay, as guenthar has removed the dead links, here are the live ones on Moddb:
Renegade Storm on Moddb
Thanks wesp. I just stumbled on this at moddb. If you want to revisit Boiling Point but don't want to play the whole game, this is the way to go.
Props to shadowmoses, wherever he is. This is a great, unique MOD.
I had a look through my files, but I don't think I ever had, or played any other mods. I did download a few files I could never make sense of, if I can find them I'll post here.
