VI. Further Notes
Welcome to Jurassic Park Legacy's Novel Canon Modifications pack. The main focus of the Jurassic Park Legacy Novel Canon Modification program for Jurassic Park Operation Genesis was to adjust the game to be accurate to what was portrayed in the novels. We hope this modification will move JPOG into a universe that is unknown to some, and created by the literary genius that we know and love as Michael Crichton.

Unpack the .ZIP file. Windows allows you to open it like any other file, and "Extract". You could also use WinZip or WinRAR.
Step 1: Backup your files! This step is your choice before proceeding. If you wish to ignore this step, just go ahead and proceed to step 2. It's a simple matter of making a folder on your desktop and copying folders from your JPOG directory and putting your files in this backup location. Otherwise you'll have to reinstall the game if you want your original files back. Why do you want to do this? Just in case you want to switch back of course! Go to your Operation Genesis directory, usually found here: "C:\Program Files\Universal Interactive\Blue Tongue Software\Jurassic Park Operation Genesis\JPOG\" and start copying the files listed from above.
Step 2: Once you are finished with that go ahead and install the mod pack by copying the "Data" folder to the "C:\Program Files\Universal Interactive\Blue Tongue Software\Jurassic Park Operation Genesis\JPOG\" directory. It will ask you if you want to overwrite the files. Select "Yes to All."
Step 3: Run the game! Load a level or start a new game, the choice is your's and Enjoy!
It is that simple!
IV: Technical Issues
If you have a technical issue, please post in either the Novel-Canon section of the Jurassic Park Legacy forums, or the Help & FAQ section.
A bit of forewarning, you should read this documentation all the way through before asking a question or stating a problem in the listed above thread.
Known Bugs/Common Complaints:
- Please note in order to have male skins YOU MUST change to 16-bit mode.
- The person (Cleaner Model) for Kiosk and Shop look very bored - there is no way to fix this. I thought this was great for comedic value.
- In the "Jurassic Classic" exercise, the island is pretty small. It was the only way to have it canon to the novels.
- In "The Lost World" Exercise you will have to move some dinosaurs so they don't get collapse into a coma. There are a few hadrosaurs on the eastern mountains that will collapse soon after opening the mission. This is simply because the OpGen programmers made "Isla Sorna" a bland, square island, and the wonderful Novel-Canon team decided to make a lucious island to mimic the descriptions in The Lost World, which was smaller than the former island.
- In the Hatchery, Hypsilophodon will have the same skin as Othnielia; don't worry. Once hatched, it will have a different skin. We couldn't find someone who could MST.
