BG2 Fixpack v11 Beta 4 Released

Recommended Posts

May I ask is there a reason why BG2 Fixpack detect TobEx presence using file detection instead checking weidu.log via "REQUIRE_COMPONENT" ?

It's because there's a quite few patches that are skipped when the ToBEx is present... search the .tp2 file with "// skip this song and dance if TobEx is present" As this way they can simply use ...

ACTION_IF !tobex_game BEGIN

... or similar things. Aka it's a variable, used in the patch processes... not a optionalized component. Which is where the REQ's are used. Or that's my take on it..

Naw, it's a BG old thing. EE has people who bugfix for money. :p

in reality, if you think about it, Camdawg is part of the EE team and he gets some money back from all the work he did on fixpack by patching EE with the fixes he made for fixpack

 

and beside, he could not also release anything at all after he joined EE team

 

If he did it for money, I doubt very much he would be releasing another version of fixpack at all - if I were him after two or three of these comments I would just quit altogether trying to fix vanilla bg

 

Thanks Camdawg for all the work you're still doing on this <3

This isnt needed for EE, right?

Just to confirm, no. It's not needed in BG2EE/BG1EE/SoD, only for non-EE BG2. Well, that too can be debated, but it's made for, that.

 

and beside, he could not also release anything at all after he joined EE team

I don't know, what you are talking about. The point being that making a sentense seems to be reeaallly hard for you. Edited by Jarno Mikkola

Version 10 will allow you to install a lot of stuff you shouldn't for BG2EE, which is why "don't use it" is the general advice.

 

If you wish to get technical, there are a handful of OBC components which can be used on BG2EE in v11:

  • Mixed-Use Dagger Fixes
  • Ghreyfain's Holy Symbol Fixes
  • Corrected Summoned Demon Behavior
  • Wizard Slayers Cause Miscast Magic on Ranged Attacks
  • Change Free Action to Protect Against Stun
  • Remove Thieving Start Bonuses from Bard and Ranger Skills

The rest--main components, text updates, other OBCs--are either included already in BG2EE or not relevant, and are skipped automatically in the current v11 beta. I just noticed that Bard Song Fixes is also available, but shouldn't be, so one more fix for the next release.

I share the same view for your sentences :p

 

But I will try to rephrase it for you: On the other hand, after joining EE team he could have left the fixpack to rot.

 

or...

 

he could also not release anything at all after he joined EE team

sorry to intervene here, but well in the wake of all these remarkable changes here at G3 since these last days, will a definitive BG2Fixpack v11 be expected soon ?

Got a nasty bug:

It is caused by wiedu 24600, if I use 24200 (shipped with mod), everything is fine.

According to your debug file, you were using 245, not 246. The error you experienced was fixed in 246.
