Checks for active romance - Question


Recommended Posts

In Ajantis BGII mod, there will be two types of romance paths: The engaged romance assumes the PC and Ajantis are engegd at the beginning of BGII, the new beginnings romance will start new in BGII.


Obviously, the engaged romance will have AjantisRomanceActive = 2,

the new beginnings romance will have AjantisRomanceActive = 1 until it gets committed. If either of them died, RA will be at three. If no romance is active, RA will be at 0.


I have seen it several times, that checks for active romance included the RomanceMatch variable (i.e., is the PC a valid romance interest).

What is the advantage of including the RomanceMatch? Is there any reason why the mere triggering via "RomanceActive" variable (0,1,2,3) wouldn't be enough?


I am asking because my RomanceMatch conditions for the engaged romance is more restrictive than the BGII RomanceMatch; i.e. the former is part of the latter (for new beginnings match the engaged path match will always be 1, but not the other way round).


I got headaches over coding all eventualities including the different RomanceMatches, since they are overlapping there is no easy way of determining the one or negating the other.


What problems would I have to face if merely using the RomanceActive variable for triggering romance-related (or not) events?
