Player inititated Dialogues in ToB?

Recommended Posts

I'm getting the same problem (besides the bug which is probably unconnected to the mod mentioned in the other post). Kivan's not talking so far and I've left the pocket plane and am taking on quests in the town - nor are any of the PIDs available.

Yes, I installed the TOB portion, although not immediately when I first started the game which was initially for SOA only. After I added TOB I uninstalled and reinstalled the Kivan mod which seemed to be working fine on the whole for the rest of SOA. Here's the WEIDU log (the fixpack was only installed yesterday after I was already experiencing the problem and the other one I mentioned in another post).


Thanks for taking the time to look at this - I'd love to carry on playing the mod through TOB so hopefully something will come to light.:crazyeyes:

It's unfinished but someone from the Petals and Thorns forum is working on it - you'd need to join that forum if you want to find out more detail/help out with any future beta testing. He hadn't been recruited for this playthrough and checking through some of the other possible romance conflicts Anomen was set to 3 and the other possibilities were coming up as 'does not exist'. My game is patched to 26498.

I am not sure what's going on. All I can see is that your game does not seem to recognize the switch of the script between SoA and ToB. I put in a little testing line into the script and neither your game, nor my freshly started ToB game into which I 'cheated' kivan in via CreateCreature did that. But all my saved games in the ToB, which presumably have Kivan going from SoA into ToB did recognize the script etc. I think this is something I cannot answer on my own, so I am going to ask the gibbs.

Attention: this fix is for a very specific glitch. Please, don't dl this file and replace your Override without need. I think it actually might cause problem in SoA if you do that (it has a scripted talk with Aphril that your dialogue file won't have. SO KIvan will pull a flirt menue on you continously.) Quickthorn, if you intend to replay SoA, make sure you set SetGlobal("P#KivanSeesAphril","GLOBAL",2) or use V9, whichever is more handy before getting to spellhold if you use the fix.


With huge thanks to Berelinde, here is a quick-fix for you:




Put this file in your Program Files\Black Isle\BGII - SoA\Kivan\BAF over-writing the previous script, and re-run the exe file to reinstall the module (SoA part, not ToB part )


This should fix your particular problem.

I'd really like to report back and say it worked, but unfortunately I don't think it has. :crazyeyes:


When I installed it seemed to go fine apart from one error message saying the following - (more or less, it may not be a perfect copy as I wrote it down by hand).


BIFF [./MOVIES/25MOVIES.BIF] cannot be loaded:

Unix.Unix_error (20,"stat","./MOVIES/25MOVIES.BIF")


I started playing the game from the same savegame I sent you earlier, and there was just one change - the lovetalk music started up twice within about 5 minutes of one another, but there was no dialogue to go with it. I could not initiate PIDs either before or after this happened.


Just letting you know in case something really obvious comes to mind as a cause!

That is familiar, you cannot pass check on ToB, so the ToB portion does not install.


Uninstall Kivan.


Go to your Setup-Kivan.tp2 file (in Kivan's folder or main BG2 folder), open it with any text editor.


Find this lines:


//The following compiles ToB Files

BEGIN @171

REQUIRE_PREDICATE FILE_EXISTS_IN_GAME ~saradush.mve~ ~ToB Is Required to Install This Component~


Replace with:


//The following compiles ToB Files

BEGIN @171

//REQUIRE_PREDICATE FILE_EXISTS_IN_GAME ~saradush.mve~ ~ToB Is Required to Install This Component~


Install the mod.

I changed it and then reinstalled but the same issue occured with the lovetalk music triggering but no talk, unfortunately. I'm mystified. Since I have the other bug going on with ToB which probably doesn't relate to the mod at all, I think I might uninstall and reinstall the whole game.
