#1hekansiPosted 10/16/2009 2:11:03 AM
I would like to know. Also if i have a save file and install restoration project will i still be able to play the save file. Or do i have to start a new one?

The requirements for the sniper perk are 8 perception points and 80% small weapons skill.

Mentats give you a +2 perception bonus I think..

You can take two of a drug before it no longer has an effect. However, you can get around that by taking the drug twice, saving, reloading, then taking more. Loading a save resets the "drug counter."

of course this is rather cheating and abusing an oversight.

why not just go get FalChe2 and edit the perk in instead if you want to meet the requirements you don't meet.

Becuase using a savge game editor is so much more legitimate right?

No they are BOTH cheating, the savegame editor is just easier to do.

if you are gonna CHEAT its best to use an editor.

Well, while they both fail under the umbrella of cheating:

-One is abusing an internal-oversight that the designers left in the game
-The other is forcing an outside solution to modify that internal value

So pop some mentats before you level up.

Or just hit cancel with the perk selection window pops up, exit the character screen, pop some Mentats, then go back to the character screen. As long as you haven't selected a perk, the perk selection window will keep popping up.

In other words, if you know you should be able to get a perk but don't see it on the list, you don't need to reload and pop some drugs before you even gained your level. You can just exit out and do it then, saving yourself a lot of trouble.
When all else fails, read the instructions.

You can dely picking a perk for up to 2 levels (or 3 with skilled) that way, but if you get another perk without picking your previous one, you lose out on it.
