"Delay the arrival of the bonus merchants" - problem [v21]


cowking

Recommended Posts

In the readme for SCSII, the component delaying the bonus merchants reads...

 

This component causes the "bonus merchants" (Deidre and Joluv) to appear a little later in the game (by default they are in the Adventurers' Mart and the Copper Coronet, respectively, as soon as you go there). One of them (chosen at random) will appear once you've started Chapter Six; the other will appear once you've either completed four of the "stronghold quests" or recovered the Rhyn Lanthorn.

You don't need to have the bonus merchants already installed (e.g. through Tweak Pack) to run this component; if you do, it won't matter.

 

In our current multiplayer game, neither merchant has appeared in Chapter 2 even though we've completed Trademeet/Druid Grove (druid stronghold) - Docks District (thief stronghold) - De'Arnise Hold (fighter stronghold) and Planar Sphere (mage stronghold). I'm just wondering if the component is somehow broken in v21, or if the readme just has it worded incorrectly (do you have to be in chapter six anyway in regards to four strongholds completed?). Could the 'strongholds available for all classes' components be interfering with the delayal component (we've accepted both thief and mage strongholds)?

 

Not really a gamebreaking issue (everything else working perfectly), just wondering if I can count on them appearing at some point (mostly for sensate amulet / scarlet ninja-to).

Checked the save game variables.

 

DMWWBONUSMERCHANT=3

WMSPAWNDEIDRE=2

WMSPAWNJOLUV=2

 

After checking Copper Coronet's .bcs in Near Infinity, and raising DMWWBONUSMERCHANT to 4 in a test save, Joluv spawned and Deidre did not. Could it be that one of the stronghold quests failed to increment DMWWBONUSMERCHANT properly? We did have the unfortunate mishap of Valen & Brus presenting their offers right when we brough Lavok outside the Planar Sphere (with Lavok's dialogue in between).

 

If so, I hope having DMWWBONUSMERCHANT at a value one lower than it's supposed to be won't cause any future problems (since completing another stronghold would raise it to 4). Or would I need to alter it to it's proper value? Or maybe I'm completely off (I'm not an IE modder).
