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. The final 32-bit pack, 0.43.09-r09, 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 (above) 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.

 PeridexisErrant's Starter Pack (64b (v 0.43.05-r08)  » posted by LeVraiNinjaneer on Oct 24, 2017, 10:18:07 am
Hi there

First off, thanks for an amazing pack. It has enhanced my dwarf fortressing experience a LOT!

I build a fort every 6 months or so, and I'm considering doing it again soon.

My question:
Does the latest pack contain anything significantly new (from, say 8 months back).
If I check the dates and the info I can find the answer seems to be a resounding YES, which gets me really excited, but I don't see a release log as such so I thought I'd just pop the question.

Keep being awesome.
Pieka

Better ask on reddit or bay12 forums as this doesn't really get monitored (apart from me of course haha)

The current r09 build has a couple of issues, maybe an update will be released soon.

For your issue with being unable to enable DFHack, this is due to the "Dwarf Fortress 0.43.05\SDLhack.dll" file being incorrect. If you have a copy of the r08 version of this pack, you can copy that specific file over from it to fix it.
You'll still run into an error with TWBT due to a missing file for it; this can be fixed by switching from Phoebus 16x graphics pack to Spacefox 16x (double-click it). You can then switch back to Phoebus or choose a different one after that.

Or you could just wait for another pack update to be released to fix those problems. :-)

So I am having the same problem that a previous gamer was having (FearsomeClarinet) as in I can get past the download phase and can start the extraction of the game, but it cuts out around 10% complete and gets corrupt. I am using a windows HP Laptop and this is frustrating as I would love to get into the game but sadly don't have enough CPU knowledge to fix this myself.

Download the latest version of 7-zip and try using that to uncompress the zip file -- the zip file is fine - I just tried it.

Can anyone help ?

I downloaded the Starter Pack, and it starts DF ok via the PyLNP. But there does not seem to be a saved game ... The walkthrough suggests that there should be a Continue Playing option, but I only have a Create New World etc.

Help ?

Thanks.

Rug

If you read the install instructions for the walkthrough, it will direct you to this older pack, which has the save. After you're done with the walkthrough, you can update to this pack to get the latest version.

You said you would package it with a top-level directory. It still does not have one.
