Help! Bug start of chapter 4

Recommended Posts

Hey, so I have been doing a play through with Calin and have come across a rather interesting (but annoying) issue. As soon as Chapter 4 in BG 2 EE starts, the glitch kicks and Calin is constantly trying to enter dialogue mode. Sometimes it fires and you get the dialogue options like you started talking to him, but mostly it just freezes Calin in place. You can't initiate a save because you cannot save while in dialogue mode.

I have currently installed parts of NPC Flirts, Romantic Encounters, as well as Skip Chateau Irenicus. I used a modmerger, if that matters. I attempted a re-install of everything, reused the modmerger and I went back to an earlier save and played through again to Chapter 4 and experienced the same issue.

Does anyone one know how I can fix this? I'm still relatively new to mods.

Not sure what you need, so this is my WeiDU...

What kind of modmerger did you use? If you are referring to Modmerge, that is only needed for SoD from GOG or Steam.

In your install order, it makes no sense to have the component for Calin's dialogue timer before the actual main component, at least I think so, dependent on how it is coded. This is not related to your problem, though.

Your problem is a so called stutter bug, where the script is calling a dialogue but doesn't find a matching dialogue in the dlg. You can install the Stutter Debug Tool and look the according script block up with Near Infinity, or you find a helpful soul who has a look at your savegame.

Link please. Yes, you are aware that I have a link to mine, but not yours... and you should always offer a link, if you suggest using it. Just saying.

I'm on mobile, and I wanted to wait whether using the tool and NI is actually an option.

And I am sure you can learn to type the URL code(, or use a tinylink and a random url address):

Hello again!

I used Modmerge as my current version of bg 2 ee is from Steam.

Okay, so I am learning things today. I tried Stutter debug and got <CHARNAME>: Running block 67 of KKCALIN.BCS on repeat at the start of chapter 4. So I'm assuming that is the stutter that is holding things up?

I have never tried NI. Would downloading it help me solve the "Running block 67 of KKCALIN.BCS " problem?

update* I don't have JAVA or Internet Explorer on my computer, so that might make things more difficult upon reading the requirements to run NI.

What Modmerge ? There's one for BG1EE+SoD, there isn't one for BG2EE ...

And yes, you need to be able to view the file in question. You don't need Internet Explorer... just "Java Runtime Environment", which you can download by using any internet browser(which is why the IE is mentioned probably and the ease of which it's in IE), but it's like any of the ones you can use to view this... Java is actually short for, a program that uses the JRE , that you can download from the official site right here.

Pretty sure the Modmerge doesn't matter and it's just called Modmerge. Found it on another form to fix a previous problem from years ago.

Anyhow, I downloaded everything and I found the block that is causing the stutter (I think) but I'm not sure what to do about it.

That's block 6... at row 67 yes... but as you can read from the text, it says "// Running block 6 of ..."

You just need to use the elevator/whatever, and go downwards a lot.

You are looking for this text: "Running block 67 of KKCALIN.BCS"

Okay, so I figured it out!

The dialogue holding up the whole proceedings was a result of the Romantic Encounter, An Evening with Aran. The simplest way to remove the issue is actually to un-install that particular part of the RE mod. 

Fixed!!! Well, worked around, but it's good enough for me. lol The stutter is gone! 🙂

Thanks for all your help!

Cheers!

Great! It's cool to see people beging able to help themselves.

Just to make this clear, the bug is not due to the RE mod but because of how Calin's reaction is scripted. Still, your workaround does the trick alright until this is fixed in Calin.

Sorry it took so long to see this, busy trying to get my grandson ready to go back to school :(  I'll look into this right away.

 

OK, I fixed it. Silly error on my part, so sorry. Uploading it in a few minutes :)

Yes, I am aware of that, but it was the simplest fix for me to perform! 🙂
