Conversion of C5L3_Monastery map, created by Poland HV and Hungary GreenTechB for PK 1.64 (with BOOH). You are a lost soul in Purgatory, who’s given a chance to return back to life. All you have to do is to steal Lucifer’s gold
from the Treasure Island which is guarded by many demons. You grab your Painkiller and step into the teleport to the island.
You have nothing but the chance to live again!

Your mission is to find all 66 holy items in level, then step into the portal back to Earth…

Tip: Please install our mod on a clean PK, where you don’t have any other mod’s in Data!

  • Install the mod to C:\Program Files\Dreamcatcher\Painkiller Black Edition
  • Launch the Treasue Hunt shortcut
  • From the Main Menu select Sign the Pact
  • Choose Treasure Hunt’s version
  • Select your difficulty level
  • Watch the intro video and then select level in the map tool, by clicking on the crimson crystal

If you have got any problems with install  or in gameplay, pls write it down!  We’ll release a patch, if necessary.  :)

    i got as far as the map loading, and there is no picture at the map tool / crimson crystal. it starts to load, and then … all you here is daniel dying, but never starts the level (that i can see anyhow)

    • Woremochine

      i said here, i meant hear (sound) lol, sorry

    • HV

      Show screenshot of your Data folder.

      • Woremochine

        funny, i didnt think i would ever have to ask this, but … how do i upload a picture here? or where to upload so i can give a link to see it??

    • HV

      I’m not sure if you know how to do the screenshot, so short tutorial:
      1. Go to the Data folder
      2. Press the Print Screen on your keyboard
      3. Start Paint and click from the menu Edit = > Paste
      4. Upload to http://imageshack.us/
      5. Add here link
      :)

    • HV

      Rename the “LScripts” folder to “LScripts2″ or something another.
      ;>

      • Woremochine

        ok, that worked. so will i have to rename it back to LScripts if i have a problem with other games?

    • HV

      Cool, have fun :D
      write when you’ll finish, show statistics : ))

      To using some mods yes, you have to rename it back to LScripts, to original game not required.

      • Woremochine

        cool, thanks HV

    • HV

      Hey Woremochine,
      thanks for the report,
      I’ll check that tomorrow,
      or maybe GreenTechB have an idea ;>
      :)

      • Woremochine

        you are welcome, anything to try to help. I know that some problems are unique to the computer’s setup / and gamer, and can not all be fixed by same patch all the time :)

  • GreenTechB

    i hope this problem is solved now :D i just arrived home :P

    • Woremochine

      Hi GreenTechB, well HV’s idea of renaming LScripts folder to LScripts2 worked, and was able to get started on the game. But now i have a different problem. In the water, when i go for the shotgun, the game minimizes, and i have a script error for grabbing the shotgun, then game closes. I took a screenshot of the error, and I am putting together a video of it in action. I even tried to get it from different angles, (lol) but didn’t work either. I am gonna try to rename LScripts2 back to LScripts, just to see if it worked or not, otherwise i will show video.
      here is the screenshot:
      http://img12.imageshack.us/img12/4512/pktreasurehuntscripterr.jpg
      I will have the video up in a little bit, and give a link here.
      As always, thanks HV :)

  • GreenTechB

    ahh not this problem again… :( the matter is that we don’t know how to solve it. we tried everything but not really worked. if we change levelsript we don’t have this script problem, but now i know that isn’t works for everyone. we’ll try to solve that problem… btw try to rename that folder and tell us what will happen :)

    • Woremochine

      OK, here it goes :)
      in the first video, it shows the errors when they happened.

      in the second video, i deleted my original save, and started from scratch. this will show you what happens, as well as I pressed ~ and typed explaination of what i was doing while doing it.
      1 – From beginning, folder is still LScripts. You will hear Daniel die (LOL!!) and there is no picture at crystal load.
      2 – I renamed folder to LScripts2. the game will load, AND show picture at crystal loader. I saved it, and tried to grab the shotgun. It minimizes, and shows me the script error.
      3- I renamed the folder BACK to LScripts, (original name) opened game, and loaded my saved game. Now, the picture is gone, but Daniel does not die :) and i was able to grab the shotgun.
      So far, this is the only problems i have. I hope this will help you guys out in maybe making a patch for this. if not? not to worry, i can work around it. I will let you guys know of any further problems
      here is the second video :

      Hey, you guys are awsome and appreciated for endless fun with painkiller :)
      Also, if you guys find a modder who knows the lua program, see if they can make a freeze tag mod for painkiller, with a grapple hook and maybe a railgun :0

      Thanks guys,

  • HV

    WHmm I found all weapons without any problem, so no idea. Is that first/second/…/last weapon which you found?

    • Woremochine

      In the first video, it was not the first weapon, and probably not the last, i haven’t made it to the BIG HIGH castle yet. In the second video, where all is explained during, it was my first weapon, in fact it was the only thing i did, just for troubleshooting purposes, i just went straight to shotgun.

  • HV

    It should not be the problem, but a question, do you play with pkweapons? Now I know,so I’ll think, but my game is still not crashing :)

    • HV

      I know something from you*

      • Woremochine

        sometimes i play using pkweapons, but not in this particular case, i dont think. well, at least not in the second video. i only went straight to shotgun. normaly idont use any cheats for first time playing game / mods
        you said you know something from me, what does this mean? something helpful maybe (lol) ? It would be nice to know that i was actually able to help you for a change :)

        • Woremochine

          I may have in the first video, i can’t remember, and i already deleted that saved game, only have newest, when i started all over.

  • http://www.woremochine.net Woremochine

    OK HV, here it is. Not so good though I’m afraid, it took me a long time ( I am terrible at climbing high places )
    http://img51.imageshack.us/i/pktreasurehuntnightmare.png/

    So is this realy bad?
    †Wore†

  • GreenTechB

    there isn’t any problem with this score :D for me, took also more than 1 hour and i created the most parts of level :D it’s a hardcore map… :P

  • http://www.woremochine.net Woremochine

    Ok, cool :) so now I don’t feel too bad :)
    next I am going to tackle it in Nightmare mode, and try to get all 5 stars :0
    scary

    • Woremochine

      Oh, and by the way, I loved this level, I had a great time without any problems (besides the original which we talked about already, and worked around it) Thanks for the fun guys :)

      Thanks
      †Wore†

  • GreenTechB

    i’m glad to hear that others also liked the idea of a big hardcore level :) maybe later we’ll make second part but i’m not sure. btw good luck for nightmare :D

  • Woremochine

    Thanks (I think I’ll need it)

    I tried to install the mod (following the above instructions and topic advice to rename lscripts) but wasn’t able to get the mod running. I uninstalled it, renamed lscripts back to its original name and now Painkiller, Overdose and Supernatural don’t work anymore!!! Any advice on how to get everything back up running again?

    Thanks a lot in advance!!!!

      I wish I had an answer for you, but my problem was a little different from yours. Once I renamed the folder LScripts to LScripts2, I was able to load the game. Once I was in the game, and didn’t do anything there, all I did was save it as ‘Save New’, closed the game, renamed LScripts2 BACK to LScripts, restarted Painkiller, loaded ‘Treasurehintmap’ which I saved, I had no more problems.
      Wish I could help more. BUT, If I may ask, :
      1) What steps did you take to install it?
      And do this for me:
      2) Right click on the desktop shortcut for Treasure Hunt properties shortcut tab copy ENTIRE LINE in the window (block, body, whichever) for where it says target, INCLUDING both of the ” ”
      3) Paste it here in a reply, there is still one way I MAY be able to help :)
      Example of what I am saying. :
      properties shortcut (tab at top) Target
      “C:Program FilesPainkillerPainkiller Black EditionBinPainkiller.exe” -lscripts TreasureHunt.pak <—– This is how mine reads, but there is more to it then just changing it. I just want to see what yours says.

      I'll check back here again

      Thnx,

        the_silent , BTW, a helpful tip :
        !!! *** Back-up your Painkiller directory by copying it onto your desktop, before installing Treasure Hunt Mod (or ANY other mod for that matter) JUST IN CASE this installation goes wrong, you can delete your ‘modified’ Painkiller directory, and copy the ‘back-up’ back into original directory, and NOT have to re-install everything. Trust me, I know, I have made it a priority to do this before I install any mods, anymore. lol, I have had to re-install too many times now. *** !!!

    Hi, WM, and thank you for taking the time to answer. I greatly appreciate that! From what you wrote, I’m afraid I messed up badly this time.
    On to the anwers:
    First of all, let me tell you that I already had tried installation of the Szum mod, and immediately deleted it when I found out it was downloading stuff in background(maps and such) without my knowledge of the process. So, this may have caused trouble.
    1) I launched the installer, selected my pk folder (where I already had renamed LScripts to LScripts_Orig) and went on from there. Nothing worked, PK hung on startup without even displayng the opening screen. I uninstalled immediately.
    2) I’m afraid I cannot do that. I already uninstalled everything. But, thanks for the offer.

    Your advice is indeed useful, I did not think of doing it. I will.

    Right now, I supposed there’s only one way: uninstall PK and start from scratch. Is there any way to save my stats (Tarots, stars, gold) to avoid going through the damn thing again? Where are thos info stored?

    Thanks a lot for your time and advice,

    The Silent

    And, do this mantain my GOLD and TAROT status, or just my saves? (I’m such a NOOB, sorry…)

    Thanks again…

    • http://www.woremochine.net Woremochine

      To be honest with you, I can’t realy remember. I think so because I know I have done this before, and the Tarot Cards are based on where you are in the levels / chapters, so I am going to say yes.

      • http://www.woremochine.net Woremochine

        Be sure you have the same mods and such already installed when they WERE saved, before you copy your saved games folders BACK in, otherwise it MAY crash your game when you load your saves (the saved games will be looking for particular LScripts files and all). This also I am not completely sure that your game will crash, it just makes sense to me this way, true?

  • the_silent

    Sounds right, thanks… I’ll try it out and let you know. Thanks a bunch.

    • http://www.woremochine.net Woremochine

      Your welcome, talk to you soon

  • the_silent

    Well, all right.
    Painkiller’s Back in action. So is Overdose. As for the Tarots, it seems I only kept the ones tied to the saves I had(only BOOH ones), so I’ll have to take again on the dreaded City On Water Balcony… :(

    As for Treasure Hunt, I tried to reinstall it over the clean PK, but something’s not right. The game does not start, first error says that the game cannot find treasurehunt.exe in the treasurehunt/bin folder (or something like that) then, if I point the pk.exe, error messages start flying like crows… This time I followed your advice, though, and I backupped my PK folder. It only seems I’ll never be able to play Treasure Hunt. It’s a real shame…

    • http://www.woremochine.net Woremochine

      Hold up the_silent, this is the way i was talking about, for installation. Please, pay CLOSE attention to these instructions, for they are LONG. Even if it means highlight all of this reply, right click/copy/, then on desktop, right click/new/Text Document.txt, open,paste this reply into .txt so you won’t have to rely on the internet. This could also work for anyone else who may have same issue as us. I have had to do similiar installations on a couple of other mods (example : Tree Of Woe) and WOE!! what a pain in a butt, lol.
      Ok here it goes :

      Treasure Hunt Mod Installation by Wore :

      !!! *** Before doing this type of installation, always back-up your Painkiller directory by copying it onto your desktop, (or a sepparate hard drive if available is always good in case of computer crashes) before installing Treasure Hunt Mod (or any other mod for that matter) JUST IN CASE this installation goes wrong, you can delete your modified Painkiller directory, and copy the ‘back-up’ back into original directory, and NOT have to re-install everything. Trust me, I know, I have made it a priority to do this before I install any mods, anymore. lol, I have had to re-install too many times now. If this works, back it up again before any other future installs *** !!!

      1) Launch the Treasure Hunt Installation executable file : TreasureHunt.exe

      2) Go into folder Treasure HuntData (in your PK directory, may differ from mine) :
      (“C:Program FilesPainkillerPainkiller Black EditionTreasure HuntData”)

      (Most likely yours would be : “C:Program FilesDreamcatcherPainkiller Black EditionTreasure HuntData”)

      3) Copy files “TreasureHunt.pak” and “TreasureHuntData.pak”

      4) Paste them into PK Black Data folder : “C:Program FilesDreamcatcherPainkiller Black EditionData”)

      5) Go into folder Treasure HuntDataMusic :
      “C:Program FilesDreamcatcherPainkiller Black EditionTreasure HuntDataMusic”

      6) Copy file “pk_treasure_hunt_battlemix.mp3″

      7) Paste it into PK Black DataMusic folder : “C:Program FilesDreamcatcherPainkiller
      Black EditionDataMusic”

      8) Now, copy THIS ENTIRE command line (excluding *****, including both “”) :

      ***** “C:Program FilesDreamcatcherPainkiller Black EditionBinPainkiller.exe” -lscripts TreasureHunt.pak *****

      9) On your Desktop, on Treasure Hunt shortcut icon, right click, select properties

      10) Paste into Target window (overwriting the existing default command line, which
      reads : “C:Program FilesDreamcatcherPainkiller Black EditionTreasure
      HuntBinPainkiller.exe” -lscripts TreasureHunt.pak) Now your shortcut should look like
      the “Play Painkiller” shortcut, but the name remains as “Treasure Hunt”.
      Basically, you took the Treasure Hunt folder out of the picture (in command line,
      between Painkiller Black Edition and bin.)

      11) Return to data folder : “C:Program FilesDreamcatcherPainkiller Black
      EditionData”

      12) Change LScripts folder to LScripts2

      13) Double click Treasure Hunt shortcut to launch game (sign the pact – Treasure Hunt)

      14) Do not play yet, it may (probably will at some point anyhow) crash. Instead, do
      this : Esc – LoadSave GameNew Save, and exit game.
      — (saved game should appear as : Treasurehuntmap) —

      15) Return to data folder : “C:Program FilesDreamcatcherPainkiller Black EditionData”

      16) Change LScripts2 folder BACK to LScripts

      17) Double click Treasure Hunt shortcut to launch game (it will just launch the same way as “Play Painkiller” does, basically “Treeasure Hunt” shortcut and folder become redundant, useless) But if it helps you to play the mod, then hey, it’s all ok.

      18) Load saved game : (Treasurehuntmap)

      19) ‘Hopefully’ have fun

  • the_silent

    Wow! Thank you. That’s a lot of stuff! I’m not sure to be in the mood of going through all that now, but thank you so much. I’ll let you know if I ever find the motivation. ;)

    • http://www.woremochine.net Woremochine

      No problem. When you are ready, don’t let all this info overwhelm you, it is realy not that bad and the Treasure Hunt Mod is WELL WORTH the troubles to get it to work correctly. Plus, if you already backed up your games (which appears that you have), even less to worry about :)
      You see, the first time I installed Treasure Hunt, all I had to do was the renaming thing. Unfortunately my computer crashed while updating my motherboard, about 10 days ago or so.. The update somehow made it so i could not connect to the internet, it said I had no connection available. No matter what I tried to do to fix it, did’t work. So I tried to “Roll Back Driver” ? Well… from the point, of having to restart my computer for updates to take affect, it never would reach my logon window, not even in safe mode. I had to do a factory restore (Nooooooo!!) Anyhow, the second time around for installing Treasure Hunt, this is how I had to do it, to get it to work unfortunately. Even though I typed a lot of info on ‘how to’, it realy only takes about 10 minutes or so, not hard, just overwhelming with info :)
      You and I must have similar OS system setups or something, because we seem to have similar problems lol.
