Graphical Differences

Inventory Icons

Mentats

Demo Final
Fallout-SYRING2Demo.png Fallout-SYRING2Final.png

Mentats were taken intravenously in the demo. The filename for their graphic still reflects this.

Stimpak

Demo Final
Fallout-STIMPAKDemo.png Fallout-STIMPAKFinal.png

In the demo, Stimpaks used the inventory icon for Super Stimpaks, and Super Stimpaks did not exist.

Tool

Demo Final
Fallout-CutterDemo.png Fallout-CutterFinal.png

The tool was redesigned to looks like something more useful for fixing stuff, but retains its overall theme. Its name was also changed from 'Wire Cutters' (see text changes).

Water Chip

Demo Final
Fallout-WATERDemo.png Fallout-WATERFinal.png

It looks like the Water Chip had a different icon, taken from the same render at a different angle with different lighting.

Vault Boy Images

Filenames in the demo indicate that these were not just changed, but repurposed entirely, and their use in the final does not reflect their original intended use in the GURPS system.

Interface

FalloutDemo-EDITRBCK.png
Early character interface, using statistics from the GURPS system.
FalloutDemo-SKILDEX.png
The skill page, presumably where perks (called 'quirks' at this point in development) would be displayed.
FalloutDemo-SKILCAT.png
Early skill names, which would have gone on the character editor screen. Artistic, Athletic, Professional and maybe Craft have no equivalents in the final, and everything else either has a different name or is missing altogether. Advantages and disadvantages were rolled into one to create traits.

Sound Differences

There happens to be sound effects for weapons in this demo, though some of them go unheard and unused because they aren't featured here. They have no reload or "out-of-ammo" sounds here, either.

WAA1XXX1 and WAB1XXX1 (10mm pistol and Desert Eagle + 9mm Mauser sounds, respectively) sound the same.

Text Differences

PRO_ITEM.MSG

This is the text file which contains the names and descriptions for items, many of which were changed between demo and final. Most items lacked descriptions and all weapons lacked strength requirements, so only examples where the name or description are present and differing in both demo and final are noted.
