Ascension 2.0.6 out; report bugs here

Recommended Posts

New bugfix version 2.0.4 is out (download here, though it's the same download link as before). Changelog:

  • Fixed a bug in DS that was leading to crashes on non-EE installs
  • Added some guards against Fallen Solars using spells on their allies
  • Tightened up the logic of Tougher Abazigal's initial cutscene
  • Final-Five Abazigal wasn't getting his spells
  • Final-Five Abazigal should use the wizard version of stoneskin, not the dragon version
  • Tougher Abazigal now uses the script and resources of the Final-Five version (can be overridden via the ini)
  • Slight refactoring of the dialogs to facilitate SCS difficulty system (no in-game effect, this is just to remove problems caused by text substitution into OR() blocks)

Edit: We're now at 2.0.6. Supplementary change-log:

  • Compatibility with Iylos and Edwin Romance
  • We now compile gpmage1.baf properly

I wanted to check slayer abilities and I've figured out that after a while being transformed you get killed. Does that mean that the character cannot stay into that form or is that a bug ?

No, that's intentional. (The original slayer power works that way and Ascension continues it.)

Thanks.

The AC change is *probably* connected to magic items worn: there are serious difficulties in getting this exactly right so I'm not worried about +/-1. The THAC0 issue is more serious.

I have emptied the inventory to check abilities but the gap is not that big with AC. As you said the big issue is with THACO.

Not a per se bug, but I got one warning on installing Ascension v2.0.4 (after ToBEx and Fixpack), so putting it out in case it is important:

 

WARNING: no effects altered on spermel.itm

override/spermel.itm copied to weidu_external/backup/ascension/0/spermel.itm, 938 bytes

Hmmm, after I begin ToB I lose all restored bhaalspawn abilities from SoA(which the mod recently allowed to regain once the PC gets the soul back from Irenicus) if I save and then load said save in ToB.

Just checking I understand:

- start a ToB game

- save

- reload save

- powers are lost

?

 

Yeah, those old SoA powers that were restored.

When I begin ToB(after beating Irenicus in SoA) all lost powers are there but after saving and later reloading said save all SoA powers are gone.

Updated to 2.0.6 but I'll leave this thread open because I haven't had a chance to address these issues yet.

More a question rather than a bug.

The usual installation order until now was Ascension -> Wheels of Prophecy -> Edwin Romance at least according to BWP because Edwin Romance has different dialog has code that accounts for WoP so it should be installed after it.

The readme in v2.0.6 has been updated and says that WoP should be installed after ascension (as always) but ER should be installed before ascension and therefore before WoP too. Will this new order pose a problem for the interaction of ER and WoP ?
