I actually can play it anyway. I have a saved game (with a vanilla Fighter), so I Shadowkeepered :) him to a Besrerker lvl 0, then leveled him up to 45000k XP (I play withh BGT). Beautiful! Even the kit description is all visible!

Quickedit - I tried to cut down descriptions myself, and it works. Thank you!

I've updated the file to Beta 2 with a shortened description. Sorry for the inconvenience. Now I really need to sleep. :(

 

P.S I cannot reproduce your problem with the Kensai. The description seem to appear just fine at character creation.

I messed up un-install of the old version where I changed description myself. (deleted the files manualy, then re-installed, then uninstalled). Bah. My fault, sorry.

I am not sure if BGEE is on your radar at the moment, but the BG:EE install fails due to trying to write a string out of range:

 

"SET_STRING 45869 out of range 0 -- 32154

Stopping installation because of error.

 

ERROR Installing [Kit Revisions by Demivrgvs], rolling back to previous state"

Yeah... that's because of this:
Ok, the problem is that the class description is too long. Sadness. I'll try to make it shorter asap.

You can do it yourself, but it will be dirty. Change the in-game descriptions to something with less text. Meaning, open kitrev/languages/english folder, you should see 3 files, one of them is named "english". Delete a few lines of description from each class. I deleted all abilities gained at x level desc. and it worked. Demivrgvs already uploaded a fixed version for BG2 engine so it's working fine for original saga players.

I and Arda were thinking to leave the BGEE compatibility stuff to Mike. :D Jokes aside, it will be compatible asap, but I do hope they have not reduced the strings even more! Are you using V1 or V1.1? Because in the latter I've re-worked Fighter's description to make it shorter and it worked fine on the original BG.

Creating a human fighter at the beginning of SoA I get 2 Offensive Stances and one Defensive Stance as special abilities, but no called shot. I tried leveling up via console to see if that would fix it, but it appears as if the character gains one extra use of Offensive Stance every 4 levels, and not of called shot. I hope it's clear, if not i'll try to show you some screenshots.
