Mod Compatibility List for EET


Recommended Posts

You can use PI to install EET, but as far as I understood you'll need to do more by hand (PI will not mod the BG1 install, make the basic EET, and mod the EET for you in one go).

As for plans on EET official release, there is a current release which is working just fine, but all in all, I'm also the wrong to ask.

Thanks for answer. Is there any manual how to install EET using PI?

I didn't try yet, because i'm waiting for patch 2.6, but is it possible to install EET by Project Infinity? Or do we have to wait for official support?

Waiting for 2.6 in order to try EET is not good idea:

- EET will have to be updated for 2.6
- some mods will have to be updated for 2.6
- new bugs might appear

It's safe enough to try EET today. You can read instructions for PI and EET and if something is not clear, please provide feedback.

I have coded prototype for EET support, it currently allows for installing mods for BG1EE, installing EET and installing rest of BG2EE mods in one go. I'm waiting for @K4thos support/feedback before release.

And by the way do you think the fixpack is installed as last mod after all the others?

No, it's installed DURING the BWS preinstall, aka it modifies the mods that are to be installed after unpacking them.

What the mod does is, is it adds a name to the shadow thief in the cutscene... that's a tweak ... and I am a Jesus, but that's besides the point... just like the Fixpack alters multiple monsters Alignments... but that's not a tweak. The line is as blurry as you like it to be.

The tweak is inserting the name of Mae'Var, the rebelleous thief guild master into the kidnapping scene of SoD. In the original game, it was not clear who were the people kidnapping the group.

I was ninja'd by Jarno. :)

Just to make this clear: I, also, think that Mae'Var makes much sense. But it is a tweak and not everyone might be aware of that.

The EET fixpack mentioned was, iirc, created to alleviate some issues that EET players encountered as the game and/or other mods changed. E.g. the bug with the necromancer summoner in the Black Pits crashing the game became an issue for some EET players as the Sandrah Saga mod for EET included the Black Pits. Other fixes were implemented to handle errors that arose when the 2.5 patch hit, as can be seen here. I think at least some of these issues have been corrected locally now, but not sure about the final state.

Edit: also, the fixpack, in terms of how it's installed, is its own separate mod, i.e. it can be installed after EET or other mods, unlike the old BW fixpack where you had to patch individual mods prior to installing them (but you still need to install it before reaching the parts of the game that it's meant to fix). As the fixpack still seems to contain fixes for 2.5-induced mod bugs though, it could end up creating bugs for mods that have since been updated to take 2.5 behaviour into account.

Thanks to you three. I hate the thalantyr dialogue and now I discover it was added back? To me there is only one decent mod that touches thalantyr and it seems to work perfectly even in vanilla 2.5.

 

I don't care about the others.

 

 

Edit: and I don't agree with Maevar being the kidnapper

@jastey tl;dr Simplest way to start from fresh repository is to delete you fork and fork it again. Then you can add "Edwin Romance" related info, create commit and send PR to original repo. This way the PR won't have conflict.

Longer version:

You fork contains a change which wasn't sensed into original repo: https://github.com/Gitjas/EET-Compatibility-List/commit/6feb2f106ec09c0793ae64255a30313ab8d07e45

This change is now redundant since the whole section disappear before. But you fork has still this change thus it's conflicting with current file from the main repository. You can click "Resolve Conflicts" and see at the bottom the 'git syntax aka <<<<<<< master' ( don not confuse <<<<<<< with weidu-related syntax)  for displaying what are differences between original file and you changes. You could also revert your last commmint inside you fork, sync it and then followup with "Edwin Romance" related info. But as I've said, the easiest and simplest way is to delete you fork and fork it again.

@AL|EN I thank you very much for the answer and reforking it anew is an idea I had but I wanted to use this as an example on how to deal with conflicts as I do not understand what I am to do with the <<<<<< section as it wants to change the master if I edit it.

But, I am still confused because as I see it, my last change you linked to:

https://github.com/Gitjas/EET-Compatibility-List/commit/6feb2f106ec09c0793ae64255a30313ab8d07e45

is inside the master here, or do I miss something? :

https://github.com/K4thos/EET-Compatibility-List/commit/8f1588ebe5d09e819bc2116efa8f2ccd1fd0db91

So basically I have no idea what GitHub's problem is and wnated to understand it.
