WSM vs iSeries in IWD2

Recommended Posts

If Widescreen mod is installed prior and iSeries is installed later (perhaps for a second run-through) there will be an issue crop up that will cause errors during iSeries compilation of scripts. These errors do not halt weidu but may cause problems with proper execution of the iSeries scripts.

 

For some reason WSM includes code to add the file attstyle.ids. It does so by creating an empty file with that name.

see code block

 

ACTION_IF ENGINE_IS ~TotLM IWD2~ THEN BEGIN
<<<<<<<< empty.ids
>>>>>>>>
ACTION_FOR_EACH file IN diffmode difflevl attstyle avclass BEGIN
  ACTION_IF NOT FILE_EXISTS_IN_GAME ~%file%.ids~ THEN BEGIN
  COPY ~empty.ids~ ~override/%file%.ids~
  END
END
COPY_EXISTING_REGEXP GLOB ~^.*\.bcs$~ ~override~
 PATCH_IF ~%SOURCE_RES%~ STRING_COMPARE_CASE testocle &&
	   ~%SOURCE_RES%~ STRING_COMPARE_CASE test_01 &&
	   ~%SOURCE_RES%~ STRING_COMPARE_CASE test_02 &&
	   ~%SOURCE_RES%~ STRING_COMPARE_CASE test_03 &&
	   ~%SOURCE_RES%~ STRING_COMPARE_CASE pbarcher &&
	   ~%SOURCE_RES%~ STRING_COMPARE_CASE pbmage &&
	   ~%SOURCE_RES%~ STRING_COMPARE_CASE pbcleric
	THEN BEGIN
  DECOMPILE_BCS_TO_BAF
REPLACE_TEXTUALLY ~MoveViewPointUntilDone(\([^)]*\))~ ~MoveViewPoint(\1) Wait(10)~
  COMPILE_BAF_TO_BCS
 END
BUT_ONLY_IF_IT_CHANGES
 IF ~264~
END

 

 

iSeries also has code to create such a file but with a purpose. The attackedby command in trigger.ids looks to an attstyle.ids for the type of weapon (default, melee, ranged). However attsyle.ids was misspelled and shipped as attstyl.ids. iSeries properly copies and renames that file to attstyle.ids provided it does not exist.

see code block

 

ACTION_IF NOT FILE_EXISTS_IN_GAME ~attstyle.ids~ THEN BEGIN // if not present, make it
 COPY_EXISTING ~attstyl.ids~ ~override/attstyle.ids~
END

 

 

Do you see the issue? If WSM is first the file exists but is blank thereby causing iSeries to skip making the correct file. Further causing weidu to complain and display errors during compilation.

see code block for sample

 

[iseries/build0.5/baf/iArcher.baf.BAF] PARSE ERROR at line 77 column 1-33
Near Text: )
[AttackedBy] argument [DEFAULT] not found in [ATTSTYLE.IDS]
[./override/ATTSTYLE.IDS] loaded, 1 bytes

 

 

The suggestion for WSM would be to break attstyle.ids out from the other ids files and copy it separately and properly for the IWD2 game.
