All monsters show as "weak"

(this is an old v1.80 install, I just discovered by going here that 2.0 was out!)

 

My game currently shows all monster groups (even dragons) as "weak". I tried launching without mods, and even without a Mods/ directory. However, I did install a few mods (such as the wildlands boss fix) that require to be installed in the main game directory, so some files there could be corrupted.

 

Have any of you already seen such a bug? In which file should I look for a solution (by grepping the strings for threat level I found them in ElementalDefs.xml, though it was only for color definition...)? And is there a way to restore one XML file without reinstalling the whole game?

I haven't had this problem, I've never installed a mod so I think you might have corrupt files.  Hope that helped.

Quoting Primal_Savage,

You're using outdated Mods and they're breaking your game ("Wildland Boss Fix" is NOT 1.8/2.0 compatible or at least not fully compatible, but that's not the Mod that's causing the issue you're seeing at the moment; if I had to guess I'd say you're using "Patchwork Mod" or "Faster leveling and XP Gain" or a Mod that changes ElementalDefs.xml).

 

So if Wildland Boss Fix is not 1.8/2.0 compatible, is that to say that 1.8/2.0 is fixed and no longer needs the Wildland Boss Fix?

 

Is ElementalDefs.xml no longer moddable?

Thanks!

 

I guess I will still do the modification of threat level (how could I have overlooked that first column) until the end of my current game, then wipe out and upgrade to 2.0. I will also check if there are some mods that I could port over to 2.0.
