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

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 (here!), /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://dwarffortresswiki.org/Lazy_Newb_Pack

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 copying your old 'Dwarf Fortress 0.xx.yy/data/save/' folder to the new pack.
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 downloaded newest version, extracted and launched pyLNP

but won't start, not appearing any error message.

i redownloaded, still not launch. why this happens? im newbie to DF, but this problem kills me.

I've seen that happen in Windows 10. Usually I back up the Soundsense packs and my saves and redownload/extract it again to a new folder and that fixes it.

I downloaded the file and exracted it to a folder. I launch the Start Pack Launcher, then Click Play Game. The game starts. Now, I want to apply the Stonesense overlay. I hit Ctrl-Shft-P which brings up the console and then enter 'stonesense overlay'. A separate window with the Stonesense graphic and names etc. opens, and the game crashes. If I enter the command once the map has already been loaded, it crashes when I enter the console command. If I enter the command while still in the DF menus, it continues until the point where I'd be in the game, then crashes.

What am I doing wrong here? I even tried deleting the whole thing and redownloading it, not changing any of the setting at all, just launching the game. And still it crashes whenever I try to apply Stonesense. Please help!

Please help! I want to get back into DF so badly but my wife won't want me playing it without isometric projection - I need this to run with the stonesense overlay! But every time I am in game and launch the overlay, the game crashes. I've tried deleting the entire thing, redownloading, and changing NONE of the settings, still it immediately crashes when launched, every time. What can I do?? Windows 10 btw, in case that's a factor. Other than stonesense the game seems to run fine, though I haven't played much - I've played too much Gnomoria to revert to overhead 2D!

Thanks!

They're false positives. This seems to happen with each new release. I think at this point PeridexisErrant should put a notice in the description that there aren't any viruses and are actually false positives. I've ended up removing all AV because it flagged a few legit Windows updates as viruses and screwed my system.

I figured that would be the case. Better safe than sorry though, right?

The overlay is incompatible with PRINT_MODE:TBWT - if you change to PRINT_MODE:2D in the graphics tab, the overlay should work, at least as well as it ever has (still in alpha, etc).

With PRINT_MODE:2D I was able to launch the overlay. As soon as I hit tab to rearrange the menus it crashed again, but it's progress. I'll try more later when I'm not at work.

Thanks!

I'm using this pack and the GemSet tileset, but the dwarves in fortress mode don't look like they are supposed to.

EDIT: Nevermind, figured it out.

 TROJAN DETECTED under windwos 10  » posted by alienbaby on Aug 10, 2016, 07:37:20 pm
While extracting the zip under windows 10 Windows Defender warned it contained a Trojan and was removing it.

I Removed the ZIP, and did not install, and now have to scan my whole machine.


Awesome?






//edit: So reading some comments here, this is normal? In my world, it isn't normal. Really this should be figured out and however it's packaged should be changed, I'm not really comfortable trusting random posts on a forum - is the author of the package really certain it's a false positive?

Some of the more useful tools in this bundle need to read and modify memory values of the Dwarf Fortress process. A similar sort of memory modification is occasionally used by malware for bad purposes, so unfortunately false positives by malware detection software are fairly common. The false positives are often fixed for said software, but end up coming back in subsequent updates. Sadly, there is not much that can be done by the pack or tool authors to prevent this from happening repeatedly.

Thanks for the bug reports (though I prefer them in the forum thread) - I'll upload a new version with these problems fixed shortly.

Please help.
Every time I attempt to install DF, I get a prompt asking if I want to open it.
Except it shows a icon of World of Tanks Blitz.
If I open, it takes me to a still image of the title screen of World of Tanks Blitz. Then nothing happens.
Same if I don't open it.
I can't find the file.
I'm using Windows 10.
Help.

Downloaded the file nine times, nine!, and every single one is corrupted.

I have the latest 7zip version and every single time I extract the file, an error message pops up with the following files listed.

Data error : LNP\graphics\Mayday\raw\graphics'versions with transparent backgrounds for tile artists.zip
CRC failed : LNP\utilities\Dwarf Therapist\platforms\qwindows.dll
Data error : LNP\utilities\World Viewer\7z64.dll
CRC failed : LNP:\utilities\World Viewer\DFWV.exe

Very frustrating. -_-

Add the fact that my net speed's only 100kbytes/s and it caps at 15gb/month. Haa. sigh.

I just want to try the game T_T

FATAL ERROR

Main index file missing/corrupted. The file "index" must be in the "data" folder. Make sure DF compressed into its folders properly.
