-HLA icons fixed
-HLA descriptions fixed
-Grey will receive HLAs
-SoD: Added more randomness to how Grey is chosen in Thrix's game.
-7th party member mode: will be removed correctly in case Grey rejoins via PID and kicked out completely directly after.
-Compatibility with Transitions Mod added.
-Added Dynamic Install Order categories to support Project Infinity.

...And to 5.1 which fixes an install warning on SoD: Grey should now walk with the group in all of the SoD end cutscenes. This was not a critical bug so you only need to update for cosmetics.


-added needed definition for variable "newline" so SoD end cutscene gets patched correctly: Grey should move with the group in SoD end cutscene.
-changed name in the .ini for better Package names when using ALIEN's Infinity Auto Packager.

2 hours ago, scheele said:

IF ~IsGabber(Player1)~ THEN BEGIN grey_clicktalk
SAY ~(Grey turns his head to you.) Woof!~

this part is not in tra; therefore, in the Russian text it appears in English.

Oh, I missed that wehn traify-ing. All text that appear in BG1 should be in the tras. Will be corrected in the next update and be @84.

Grey the Dog updates to v8!


-All BG1 lines in PID traify-ed.
-Compatibility with the 5E casting mod and the TnB multiclass sorcerers and the FnP multiclass shamans: Increase of PC's FATIGUE for detection of scripted resting will happen after 15s timer and only if it wasn't increased by another mod already.
-Updated readme.

I've been lurking around these sites for years. I've played the game almost from the beginning and I'm a huge fan of your work. That being said, in the next month or so, I'm planning a "Jastey Run" through a big EET install. I'll be using your mods and characters and many of the ones you have contributed to. Sooooo, I was wondering if you thought of giving Grey a little more survivability in SoA and ToB. It really wouldn't need much. After all, dialogue doesn't really require anything else, "WOOF!" A quest would be nice but what is really needed is just a little more attack and defense since he can't use standard items. Really just a +3 weapon in SoA and +4 in ToB and maybe a little armor buff and he is good to go for the whole series.

Any way, just hoping. Love your work! You're amazing! Thanks for all you do.

@J Beau Thank you for the super kind words! I feel honored.

Unfotunately, I am at modding SoD currently - BGII will come after that, so it will take a little while until I come to making +3/+4 weapons for CHARNAME's most favorite dog companion.

EDIT: Anyone reading this and being familiar with NI knock yourself out though, maybe it's sufficient to just copy the existing teeth enforcer itm files and change the enchantment a little.

I'm glad to see the update!  Are there any new items for Grey?

One thing I have noticed in EET, when you get Grey back in BG2 he has lost a lot of items with no real way to replace them.
