File Description

This mod shows you what rewards (weapons, cash, artifacts) you will receive upon the complete on a mission.

This version has been updated to work with version 1.005 of S.T.A.L.K.E.R. Shadow of Chernobyl.

Before taking on your next side mission, wouldn't it be nice to know what the reward is? The Show Reward mod displays the promised reward for side quests with the mission description. Reward items and RU are displayed before taking on a mission, so the Marked One can see what he'll be risking his neck for. For cash-only missions, if it's necessary to return to collect the reward, that's now shown with the cash value.

Show Reward Mini Mod v1.03
-----------------------------------------------------------
Author: onionradish [AT] bitlet.com
Tested on : Stalker v. 1.0003 - v 1.0005
-----------------------------------------------------------

UPDATED FOR 1.0005

This mod has been updated for compatibility with the 1.0005 patch. It 
also works with earlier versions. For cash-only rewards, "return for 
reward" text now displays if it's required to return to the quest-giver 
after the mission is complete. Otherwise, you can expect cash-only
rewards to be transfered to your account on completion without returning.

DESCRIPTION 

Before taking on your next side mission, wouldn't it be nice to know 
what the reward is? The Show Reward mod displays the promised reward for 
side quests with the mission description. Reward items and RU are 
displayed before taking on a mission, so the Marked One can see what 
he'll be risking his neck for. For cash-only missions, if it's necessary 
to return to collect the reward, that's now shown with the cash value. 

Storyline missions and other missions which only reward the player with 
faction or rank points won't show any additional reward information. 

The Show Reward mod is designed as a mini-mod for easy incorporation 
with other mods. It reads reward items and cash from configuration files 
to support mods to missions and rewards. The mod is also designed to 
support translations natively, as it uses existing in-game language text 
for all items. 

Please report bugs to the author. 


-----------------------------------------------------------
INSTALLATION
-----------------------------------------------------------
Only one file is needed to install Show Reward: the 
"show_reward.script". To activate it, one line must be added to the 
game's "task_manager.script" -- you can either make the change yourself 
as described, or use one of the included "task_manager" scripts that 
matches your game version. 

If you're not using any other mods (stand-alone install):
-----------------------------------------------------------
	Edit your fsgame.ltx file (in your Stalker game install folder)
	with a text editor so that the "$game_data$" line looks like this:
	
	$game_data$   		= true|		true|	$fs_root$|		gamedata\

	Then, simply unzip the show_reward.zip file to automatically extract
	"show_reward.script" and versions of the "task_manager" script into a
	"gamedadata\scripts\" folder.
		
	Several versions of the "task_manager.script" file are included for
	stand-alone installation. The version of "task_manager.script" you'll
	need depends on the version of the game you're playing. Rename one of
	the included "task_manager" script files -- the one that matches
	your game version -- to "task_manager.script" and put it in the
	"gamedata\scripts\" folder. You can delete the versions you're not using.
	
		task_manager_v1.0003.script
		task_manager_v1.0004.script
		task_manager_v1.0005.script
	
	Copy the "gamedata" folder with "show_reward.script" and
	"task_manager.script" to your Stalker game install folder. 

If you're using other mods (integration):
-----------------------------------------------------------
	Edit your fsgame.ltx file as above, if necessary. (You've likely
	already made the change for your other mods.) 

	Copy the "show_reward.script" file to a "gamedata\scripts\" folder
	inside your stalker game install folder. If your "gamedata\scripts\"
	folder doesn't already contain a "task_manager.script" file, you can
	just copy and rename one of the versions of the "task_manager" script
	as described above. Put that file in "gamedata\scripts\" also.

	Otherwise, if your "gamedata\scripts\" folder already contains a
	"task_manager.script" file, edit the function
	"CRandomTask:init_task_dialog" as shown below, depending on your
	version. 
	
	FOR VERSION 1.0003/1.0004
	-------------------------
	Below line 683 (1.0003) or line 719 (1.0004), which reads:
	
		phr = dlg:AddPhrase(self.task_info[v].text, self.task_info[v].desc_phrase_id,
			self.task_info[v].init_phrase_id, -10000)
			
	simply add the following line: 
	
		show_reward.add_reward_display(phr)

	FOR VERSION 1.0005
	-------------------------
	Below line 721, which reads:
	 
		phr = dlg:AddPhrase(self.task_info[v].text, tostring(self.task_info[v].desc_phrase_id),
			tostring(self.task_info[v].init_phrase_id), -10000)
	
	simply add the following line: 
	
		show_reward.add_reward_display(phr)
	
	
-----------------------------------------------------------
UNINSTALLING
-----------------------------------------------------------

If you're not using any other mods:

	Simply delete the "task_manager.script" and "show_reward.script" from
	the "gamedata\scripts\" folder
	
If you're using other mods:

	Delete the line you added to the "CRandomTask:init_task_dialog" function in your
	"gamedata\scripts\task_manager.script" file:
	
		show_reward.add_reward_display(phr)
	
	Delete the "gamedata\scripts\show_reward.script" file.
