    Download Links for the

    AvP2 Dedit SDK

    Make sure you get the latest files. The Software Development Kit, the Tools for the Talon version of Lithtech 2.5, for AvP2 has had two updates. So along with the basic tools, the additional update will assure that whatever you produce is compatible with the latest version of the game. A set of tools was also made available as part of the Primal Hunt Expansion Pack.

    The tools have had an initial release.

    A First Update.

    A Second Update.

    FilePlanet has the files available for download on its site. This is the Tools/Utility link.

    Where you want to download is up to you. It should be noted that you should have the game to use the tools. The EULA (user agreement) requires this. Make sure you install them in the order they were released.

    Here are a couple links to reliable download locations. Please read the EULA carefully prior to using the tools.

    Much of this information is interchangable for NOLF 1, the 2.1 version of Lithtech.

    Good luck with the SDK.
