EET Compatibility for Kaeloree's abandoned mods

Recommended Posts

I was wondering if anyone would be willing to update the Dace Linton NPC mod to be more EE-friendly and possibly add EET compatibility. agb1 mentioned something about patching it, but he disappeared a while back:

Dace is one of my favorite mod NPCs and I'd really love to be able to have her for my future EET installs. I'd be grateful if anyone would consider it =)

The one to do this would be the mod author - unless you find some permission provided by the author saying his mod is free for others to enhance. (I have myself done a number of upgrades for mods but only for those that the original author explicitly allowed, like Chloe or Expanded Thief Stronghold.)

Otherwise you can do your own private update using the tool you find in EET/other/EET_modConverter.

You only need to consider to install your converted mod prior to EET_end.

 

PS - agb1 or k4thos have initially provided some patches for mods to make them EET compatible, trying to encourage the modders to incorporate those patches into their mods. However such patches are only valid for the respective version of a mod used for conversion. If modders update their works without incorporating the proposals, the patch becomes invalid. So it is no longer done, it was just to get the EET started and prove the concept.

I did indeed contact the mod author. His response was as follows:

 

"Hi!

 

I'm really sorry, but I don't maintain my mods anymore! I'm more than happy for other people to update them, but I don't have the time or inclination to keep things going unfortunately.

 

Sorry!

 

Liam"

 

So I guess that means that he's cool with not only Dace being updated by other modders, but also his other mods as well? =)

 

If that's the case then I would also be interested in trying out the Ninde NPC mod as well, along with any other mods of his that have crossmod content with Sandrah but need updating.

Sounds good.

That would be

- Ninde

- Dace

someone else?

 

I played them back in BGT days but only vaguely remember details. Would be interesting to see them again.

He has about a dozen other NPC and NPC-related mods under his umbrella.

 

- Arath NPC

- Nephele NPC

- Xulaye NPC

- Darian NPC

- Yeslick NPC

- Adrian NPC

 

and more.

 

I don't remember offhand which ones are and aren't already EET-compatible.

 

But Dace and Ninde are the ones I'm interested in the most that aren't already available in EET. Maybe Yeslick?

I will look into Dace and Ninde later this day.

I surely let Yeslick out, BG1 NPC forced into BG2, not my cup of tea.

Xulaye that is the drow conspiring in the Underdark, right? Yes, she is interesting. Candidate.

The rest may need to wait a day or three.

One step at a time.

Are you sure all of those are *free*?

For example

- Valerie, she is a BG1 NPC just waiting for a long time to get her BG2 contents.

- Edwin and Haer'Dalis Romance, I think those are actively maintained

 

Chloe was originally by Lucybeast and I have adopted and extended her with help of the original author already. There is an expanded EE/EET version available. http://www.shsforums.net/files/file/1167-chloe-npc-for-eet/

 

The only other candidate from that list I see is Iylos - the ToB character, only new ToB NPC I know (not counting Sarevok and Irenicus from Longer Road).

I have just done two of the *free* mods for EET (Ninde and Dace). Takes a moment more than just conversion because I also remove a number of bugs and introduce fixes that have not been done for about 3 years. Takes a bit of analysis which ones are still applicable for EET or are applicable but in a different form.

I will go through the list bit by bit but I make no promise for any other except Iylos and Xulaye at this moment. Time will tell.

 

Any EET versions that become available I will post with their links in the EET compatibility topic, so that k4thos can decide to put them on the main list.

Do you see any kind of "except..." ? No? Then there is no problem.

Those mods from the list http://www.shsforums.net/index.php?app=core&module=search&do=user_activity&search_app=downloads&mid=3481 are already EET compatible:

- Valerie

- Chloe

- Sarevok Friendship

- Edwin Romance

- Neera Expansion

- Haer Dalis Romance

- Imoen friendship

- Fishing for Trouble

 

There is also a Mazzy project already ongoing ("All Things Mazzy") that merges the old mod with new stuff, so just wait for that.

 

I have converted, repaired and enhanced those below now in addition. They are branched off from old versions for EET for reasons detailed in the changelog provided with each download. There is no intent to make them backwards compatible since working versions for other games exist for years and there is no need to touch them.(Those who care for their bugs can use fixpack.)

- Dace Linton

- Xulaye

- Iylos

- Ninde

(see details in EET compatibility list topic)

 

I plan to do these still

- Arath

- Nephele

 

 

The rest of the list according to Kaeloree's own comments are abandoned/unfinished exercises like Darian, Yeslick or *Unfinished Varia* - so better left in the vault they are in.

Could you maybe edit the title of the first post?

Something like

EET Compatibility for Kaeloree's abandoned mods

or whatever you think is appropriate.
