Revised SCS

Recommended Posts

Ah ! Ça y est ! Zenblack you are my saviour !

Well we French have a proverb : Aide-toi le Ciel t’aidera/God helps those who help themselves…So I had already noticed with ShadowKeeper in my BG2 installation that the Greater Basilisks were present in BG2 but without their animations, explaining the unavoidable crashes of SRv4 when MS IXS was activated. And being not a modder myself, I didn’t know the miracle cure …So after having read this recent indication , I’ve made a quick search, downloaded Infinity Animations @ Spellhold Studios, and after a few trials and a second download of animation files, installed IA in my BG2 session; well now the famous Basilisks appears in the grove with the activation of MS IX !…See the capture below, the poor Illasera had no chance this time in this fight against Maya, ha ha ! And I’ve put here the essential file - Infinity Animations with the basilisks animations - to download for the ones who are interested. Now this bug being solved once for all, I hope that the next version of SR will permit nevertheless to keep this version of Monster Summoning IX in this present form, having personally a weakness for powerful spells like this one…

I hope you know that any Conjurer above level 17 will have these summoned the moment he appears on your map.... :rolleyes:

Hi

 

I'm sorry for this rather noobish question. I can't run stratagems in my gamedirectory. In the readme there's hint of a .exe, but when I unpack stratagems.rar I only get a stratagems .bat file. And that gives me the attached messages not able to run stratagems. Is it only for EE games?

I think I solved it by renaming another setupfile to setup-stratagems, and it seems to work.

Is this "Revised SCS" sux SCS, or it is cool SCS?

Imho - if somebody trying to make game like paper-pen rules, it is not a very good for a dynamical PC-video game world. Ok. I will read what a main difference, I hope this SCS have a good 'README".

This is the upgraded SCS to properly use the Spell Revs spell updates, and its made by the spell revs makers. Not the original SCS'es, as he was away for a while -v30 version.

The SCS v31 will not have some of these tweaks, while it has it's own.

It's Kreso's set of SR-based tweaks to SCS v30. I didn't have anything to do with it.

 

(Normally this would irritate me a bit, as I wasn't asked - but I was pretty much uncontactable at the time, even by email, so I assume Kreso/Demi tried and failed to get in touch.)

Yes.

I don't really understand this question. "revised SCS" is SCS pretty much as it was; I tweaked some stuff which I usually do on my home install and uploaded it. Most of the gameplay changes you'll see come from Spell Revisions v4, not "revised SCS".

Hi everyone, it's been a while since I have played BG, being a father is a full-time job .
Anyway I've updated my mods and I've decided to take Revised SCS this time but I was surprised to see that with BWF :

post-7816-0-66791600-1487928895_thumb.jpg

I thought that BWF (GitHub version of course) already included Revised SCS fixes, am I wrong? I had the same message with UB but it's ok since I have UBv26 instead of UBv26.2.
I taped Y coz I've seen a lot of fixes proposal with that mod on this topic but was it the good choice? Should I have skip that message?

Thanks for your return.

You should have UBv26.2, please update. If you use BWF, download and extract regular SCS, download and extract spell_rev and then run BWF - it will patch SCS and then apply the whole "SCS Revised for SR" changes.

All right thanks, but for UB I cannot find the v26.2. The download link proposes everytime simple V26, and in the mod topic there is no link except the last one v27 alpha.

From BWS ub.ini:

Down=http://mods.pocketplane.net/UnfinishedBusiness-v26beta2.zip

I might add v27 alpha because of EET compatibility.

Protection from missiles doesn't protect from the duergar archers added by the SCS mod (those that replace goblins) in Jon Bon's dungeon.

Also (though this bug isn't directly SCS-related), the sword spider form (from polymorph self) is not immune to the slow effect of web.
