BG2 Tweak Pack v6 Released


Recommended Posts

G3 Tweaks, Tutu Tweaks, and Wes Weimer's Ease of Use mod have been combined into BG2 Tweaks--a single mod designed to work on Tutu, Baldur's Gate Trilogy, or regular Baldur's Gate II games (with or without the expansion Throne of Bhaal). As of Version 6, BG2 Tweaks is now available in 10 languages thanks to Miranda's Chinese translation. This release also features a number of bugfixes for issues identified since the last release. The BG2 Tweak Pack is a WeiDU compilation of fixes, cosmetic changes, and tweaks. Some of these were fan requests, others are needed fixes, and others simply make dealing with the more irritating aspects of the game engine easier. Each component can be installed separately so the player can pick and choose only which ones they wish to install.


Sorry guys, I know we've had a number of good component suggestions, but this is purely a bugfix/new translation release. Thought I'd give y'all an early Christmas.


Changes from v5 to v6:

  • Added Chinese translation; thanks Miranda!
  • Fixed a bug with the Change Experience Point Cap: Remove Completely component to behave more sensibly for bards, clerics, monks, and thieves. These characters had an unnaturally large jump in XP needed to go from level 39 to 40 (the old default level cap) and this was being propagated through the XP tables out to level 50.
  • Fixed a bug with Make Montaron an Assassin (Andyr) component; the highest level version of Montaron was flagged a player-created character
  • Fixed a bug with the Improved Fate Spirit Summoning component that was preventing players in new ToB games from summoning any characters at all
  • Fixed a bug with Allow Cromwell to Upgrade Watcher's Keep Items component; specifically there were errors when trying to upgrade the White Dragon Scales, Quiver of Plenty +1, and the Thieves' Hood
  • Fixed a long-standing game bug that interfered with Anomen's romance and quests. Essentially, non-romanceable females could never start Anomen's family and knighthood quests, and the Romance Cheats: No gender requirements component was essentially extending this bug to males. This is now fixed by Tweaks, and the relevant fix has also been passed along to the BG2 Fixpack
  • Fixed bug where potions in the Gems and Potions Require Identification component would sometimes use gem descriptions
  • Fixed rare bug that could occur if you tried to install the Expanded Dual-Class Options component with the Refinements mod present in the BG2 folder but without the Refinements HLA component installed
  • Added compatibility code for the Alter Weapon Proficiency System: Rebalanced component to work nicely with Maurolava's Samurai Kit
  • Triple-Class HLA Tables requires the Change Experience Point Cap: Remove Completely component installed, but was giving a nonsensical message if this requirement was not met
  • Fixed three bugs with Sellable Items: it would fail if older, BG-style store files were present (used by the Grey Clan and Secret of Bone Hill mods) or if installed without Throne of Bhaal. Also corrected the name of the component displayed during install
  • ToB-Style NPCs would not affect Khalid or Montaron if the Make Khalid a Fighter-Mage or Make Montaron an Assassin components were installed after it. The dependency has been removed and these components can be installed in any order
  • Corrected contact email address displayed if the mod fails to install
  • Clarified various points in the readme; specifically balance concerns for Shapeshifter Rebalancing, the revised level cap for the Change Experience Point Cap: Remove Completely component, possible Happy Patch and Neutral Characters Make Happy Comments at Mid-Range Reputation conflicts with Virtue, and the possible use of Level 1 NPCs instead of the Make Khalid a Fighter-Mage or Make Montaron an Assassin components. Also flagged the Add Save Penalties for Spells Cast by High-Level Casters component as beta, as I still haven't been able to replicate or fix the reports of sporadic crashes with this component. Please keep the bug reports flowing in as I really want to get this one nailed down

Thank you, but it seems the Sellable Items component corrupts the shops in Bonehill. At least 2 in Restenford (Lazarus and Smyth).

Checked v5 - it does not have such problem in Bonehill, but there was an issue with a Grey Clan shop.
