Ascension 2.0.8 out; report bugs here

Recommended Posts

Guest grainne6

Killing Balthazar doesn't fix it.  I just get his journal which again tells me to visit the stone heads but no update on map or journal and no change in pocket plane.

I have a bug that has stopped my progress.  When I visit Balthazar, I can persuade him to join me and he brings Melissan out. Balthazar and the monks attack her and the first time my party joined in but it led to a bug - the game switched to a cutscene when she was dying and my party kept attacking her and but she didn't die, I have to force quit the game.  The second time I kept my party out of the way and this time Melissan died, then Balthazar told me I should go to see the stone heads then he disappeared (after repeating the same dialog twice).  But there are no new areas I can get though, going back to the pocket plane does nothing, the exit just takes me back to the monastery.  I have no idea what is supposed to happen so I don't know what part isn't working.  My journal is still saying I need to confront Balthazar. Should I reload and just kill Balthazar?  Is there some console command I can use?    

I have tried several times but it never works - the third time, Balthazar greeted me again after Melissan died and brought out another Melissan!  I just want to finish the game - should I uninstall Ascension - would that be safe if I have save after killing Abazigal?

I have the enhanced edition and my weidu log is below.

Hi,

I had a similar issue in my recent game but i guess from the help i received that it was wheels of propecy not ascension that caused it. I had to warp to the stone heads to continue. Later i had to trigger the last transition because the door of pocket plane in both cases had not the right options.

That could be it, I wanted to finish so I just uninstalled ascension and the game played fine.  I will try ascension without wheels of prophecy next time.

These seem similar to the issue I have faced. And I had Wheels of Prophecy as well. So, probably there is a slight inconsistency between Wheels of Prophecy and Ascension v2 at the moment

I had some help that allowed me to finish my game despite the errors, maybe it helps you too. Don't be misled by the title, it's just the first glitch I had http://baldursextendedworld.com/Vanilla_Forums/discussion/602/i-dont-get-teleported-to-the-pocket-plane-after-defeating-abizigal#latest

I have a bug which is probably caused by Improved Slayer Transformation, I think. Bug is that my protagonist will gain the ability Slayer Change (I am in chapter 1, lvl 8 character) and is has 52 charges, basically I can transform to Slayer 52 times a day. I can remove it using Shadow Keeper but after area change it will be back.

There are many bugs in the current 2.0.9 version indeed. The 2.0 branch is far from being in the "reasonably cleaned up of bugs" state that would justify no update in so many months. :/

@InKal I encountered this one in the outside of Watcher's Keep area with a 1.5M XP character (level 14) in chapter 2.

The cause seems to be that finslgr.SPL is applied to the player and one of the effects checks for EA >= ANYONE and then grants Slayer change regardless of anything else, through FINSLG1.SPL. Since this plays with global variables specific to the mod, I wanted to check if people had a quick fix to avoid having to figure out a self-fix that doesn't break other things.

Gosh! Modders have a real life, too! And they dare to do other stuff than working unpaid hours for people they don't know! Yes, I guess swearwords are completely in order here!!11!1

I think you're exaggerating a bit with the swearing, that's not cool. I'm thinking guillotines will do in a situation like this.

Throw in a food and health crisis for good measure... Best of luck!

Meanwhile, regulars from this community don't take any initiative to propose fixes to the mod themselves, or warn the mod author about the current amount of problematic bugs, or even merely opening a 2.0.9 bug thread. So I think InKal's swearword could well be directed to you in general. He may not be the actual one expecting one person to do everything all the time, here.


Maybe I'll be back with an intent on contributing positively since I have listed quite more than a dozen bugs that I am able to fix myself if I invest time in this community. (Up to now I've been using dirty fixes for myself that wouldn't be proper to ship in the real Ascension mod.)

If the community starts to buzz into fixing Ascension 2.0.9 with a lab branch while its real author is busy parenting, I'll follow provided I notice it.

You are seriously barking up the wrong tree, you know.

And small hint: "the community" includes you.
