Endless BG1 - A Mod for BG:EE, BG:SoD, BGT, and EET!

Recommended Posts

@Shin

 Thank you very much for the reports and solutions! Very appreciated!

@K4thos

Oh, I wasn't aware and it didn't occur to me to check. I'll see what lines there are for Elminster. Thanks for pointing that out!

Thanks for feedback and kind words!

Another possible bug is with the Imoen <-> Liia Jannath component. The IMOEN2_.DLG file generated by installing on EET won't work since Imoen uses IMOEN2J.DLG for her lines. Also the dialogue references between Liia and Imoen seem weird, with among other things one state of IMOEN2_.DLG leading to another state in the same file rather than back to Liia as would be expected -- but maybe that's due to the EET install as well. In the same way, because of IMOEN2_.DLG not being the file Imoen uses, her reply to the servant C#STSRV2 also won't fire.

Edit: Could likely be solved by adding EET compatibility, installing onto BG1/SoD and importing through the EET install -- should consolidate the lines into the proper DLG file.

Also, when Belt proclaims you hero of Baldur's Gate, his line "By the power bestowed upon me as Duke of the Council of Six of this city" should probably be Duke of the Council of Four (with the Council of Six of course being in Athkatla).

Awesome catches, @Shin.  I sure hope when I get my mod ready for beta that you'll be available.  Nice work. :)

Thanks. What kind of mod will it be?

Fantastic, Jastey! Even going through SoD, this adds much needed continuity. Solid spot on my modlist :D

it will be on the same vein as the Endless BG1 mod, but its main objective will be to allow some of SoD to be completed before moving on to BGII.  It always bothered me that, after finding the information that stated Caelar's intended purpose behind the attempts to capture the protagonist, he/she would still merrily continue toward where he/she should NOT be going.  They give you this info, and you're just supposed to ignore it.

@Shin did you experience problems in the game or did you look at the files only? The mod uses the correct standard definition of Imoen's joined and post dialogue from inside "EET/other/cpmvars/eet_cpmvars.tpa" (and inside the mod %IMOEN_JOINED%, %IMOEN_POST% as defined in all the cpmvars.tpas). This indeed lets it patch for BG1 the ImoenX_ dlgs. But, finalizing the EET install with EET_End.exe as necessary before playing will unify the joined dialogue as required by creating one for Imoen for the whole saga.

This is standard procedure for modding EET directly, patching to the game before the EET_End.exe unifies the joined dialogues of the NPCs.

That, indeed, is a good correction. I noticed it myself when I realized that the council of six was Athkatla, not BG, but then forgot to check what it should be instead.

It was just a test whether anyone is actually playing the mod, you know. :suspect:

@Lauriel is working on a mod that also enables what EBG1 does but for SoD it will be so much more. We are working on making the two mods compatible by modular design so players will have the choice between Lauriel's content or mine for the different components.

Right, yeah -- this is what I thought while posting, the problem probably stemming from my setup with having installed this mod onto EET and after EET_End. I had the problems in the game, but solved it by transferring the dialogue states to the proper file. Probably not an issue then.

👍 Of course.

Cool, I'll try it out if it coincides, about to transition into SoD soon.

BGT:

1) Are the sarevok removed references splitted from the new dialogues on duke eltan?
2) Did I understand wrong, or you touched also the dialogues of the "guards"?

For EET

Roxanne:

Endless BG1 ... is not compatible with EET at all. If you want to stay in BG1 after Sarevok's death to finish any business you may [use my mod]

LOL. I don’t understand the motivation for giving misinformation about mods for a 20-year-old video game. 

(I also don’t understand why anyone goes to her site, unless they like being lied to.)

I think it was written just to sting Jastey, since as we all know she's Roxanne's main 'admirer'. But I gotta admit, this is low even by Roxanne's own twisted standards. What's funny is that she seems to be aware of any new mod out there faster than most of us puny mortals even blink.

@Arthas I admit the BGT part also adds flavor by inserting new lines to Duke Belt which is not transported properly in the readme and mod description. Mainly, the declaration of the PC as a hero of Baldur's Gate is also added to BGT and the dialogue is extended so that you need to talk to Duke Belt again to get the normal "mission to Amn" dialogue.

Not sure why you put guards in "". Yes, EBG1 touches their dialogue to reflect that the PC has a right to be inside the Palace now. In case that was your question.

Roxanne:

I'm not browsing her "forum" so I don't know what she's writing there, but lastly most things that were drawn to my attention were lies about my mod updates being buggy or "completely unplayable", so "is not compatible at all" would fit nicely in this list, thank you for the laugh. (EBG1 still has bugs in the current EET version, so much is true.)
