Description
THIS IS AN OUTDATED VERSION OF THE STARTER PACK

Stable and fully-featured, it is based on DF2014 (version 0.40.24) and includes the products of over a year of work by the community.

However, it was made obsolete by the release of Dwarf Fortress version 0.42; the main Starter Pack has continued to update while this version of the pack was moved to a seperate download page for archival. The current Starter Pack can be found here, and is considerably more advanced.

Unless you have a specific interest in playing an older version of Dwarf Fortress, I strongly encourage you to download the newer pack linked above. This pack is no longer supported, and will never be updated. The old pack description, table of contents, and partial changelog follows.

====================================


PeridexisErrant's Starter Pack bundles Dwarf Fortress with huge community upgrades - graphics, tools, bugfixes, and much more.

[size=18pt]Download the latest Starter Pack here![/size]

It's suitable for anyone - if you've never tried DF before, or played for years. For beginners, everything is bundled and set up for you; any setting can be safely ignored and the default will just work. For advanced players, everything is open: customise, add, remove, update, or replace anything you want to. The Starter Pack means you can spend hours setting up your fortress, instead of your DF install!

There's a thread on the Bay12 forums for feedback, questions, suggestions, or anything else about the pack. The second post has a complete table of contents, and recent changelogs.

Besides the official download page on DFFD[/url], /u/Hecknar maintains df.wicked-code.com, which mirrors every release since 0.40.01! The final 34.11 pack is here. The final 40.24 pack is here. If you need an older pack or that site is down, let me know and we'll sort something out. OSX and Linux packs are available at http://lazynewbpack.com

INSTRUCTIONS:
1. Download and unzip the folder
It's a bundle of portable apps; there's no further installation procedure.
The pack must be able to read/write files though - so don't put it in a "Program Files" folder.
2. [Optional]: Use this tool and the checksum on DFFD to confirm you got an uncorrupted file.
3. [Optional]: Upgrade from an earlier release by running the 'copy my data' script with both versions next to each other in a folder.
DO NOT try to upgrade by extracting or copying over an earlier pack.
4. [Optional]: Visit the DF wiki or my tutorials for help learning to play.

Finally, an appeal: Dwarf Fortress is free, and redistributable, because Toady lives off donations. You can support Bay12 Games here. Or you can donate to cover my time and costs here. Even if you decide not to donate, Dwarf Fortress is still free - and so is this unofficial pack.

I'm sure they will choose to update when they can. Nod to the Bioshock reference there if that is what you were doing.

A screenshot would help.

DF should work on just about any computer.

Try unzipping to a new folder and launching without changing any settings. If that does not work send a screenshot. (Link from imgur would be great)

 PeridexisErrant's cutting-edge pack (v 0.42.06-r02)  » posted by illys on Apr 12, 2016, 05:05:56 am
Was really happy to download this one, and it worked very well with the first run!

I'm trying to get Starter Pack Launcher (PyLNP).exe to launch again though (from a folder in Documents) and it fails to start the LNP window. My cursor will show a cycling circle for a moment, and then nothing.

I'm able to run the LNP for DF .40.24 quite fine, repeatedly, but so far the LNP for .42.06 is only running after being unzipped the first time.

I'm running windows 10x64.
Thanks for any possible hints, and kudos for putting the pack together :)

Here's some feedback from the stderr file it generates:
Code:

Are you 100% sure you are opening the folder you unzipped the LNP into instead of opening the zip file and running the exe inside the zip file?

Yep, I've unzipped it multiple times just to test what was going on. (aka, into two different folders just to see if it would run again freshly unzipped). I haven't changed the contents or names of the subfolders at all. Also, there's no Michael Madsen user on my windows 10 install.

I searched the zip and that name appears nowhere.

Command prompt to your download directory then....

dir /x p*.zip
then find the 8.3 format filename for the download.... then substitute it here: (mine was PE7EA4~1.ZIP)

certutil -hashfile PE7EA4~1.ZIP SHA256

(This was for r02 but look for the SHA256 below the release)
SHA256 should start with 15 2f then end 3c c2.... is that correct? (this lets you verify the file is not changing after you download it, as if from a virus for example)
