    This mod offers two new possibilities to consider when making the decision about whether to side with the Shadow Thieves or with Valen's Mistress. In addition to the traditional two, the player may now opt to side with a group even the paladins in the party could have no objection to... or he may opt to skip the whole decision entirely and set sail for Maztica. Alternatives also offers a different way to satisfy Mae Var's demand that the protagonist steal an artifact from a temple. It is nearly impossible for a lawful good character to go through the game and remain completely true to his or her alignment. Siding with thieves is not a very lawful thing to do, nor is allying with undead a particularly good deed. The "Paladin Route" offers a third option, the ability to work for an unimpeachably good organization and eliminate two evils. The "Assassin Route" came about a bit later, as a result of some musing about how a character who has no real interest in either rescuing Imoen or going out of his or her way to take revenge on Irenicus might want to avoid the whole decision entirly and get the hells out of Amn. Jastey never liked the concept of stealing prized artifacts from temples while running errands for Mae Var, so she created a work-around for that, as well. The latter component is also incorporated in Jastey's Ajantis mod, so Ajantis is installed, the "Temple Thievery Alternative" component will not be installed. Both new options begin after Valen and Brus make their traditional appearances. To begin the "Paladin Route," visit the Government District after speaking with Brus. To begin the "Assassin Route," go to the Slums, where a garishly dressed nobleman by the name of Malficus will make an attractive offer. He is standing outside the Copper Coronet, not far from the road that leads to the southern entrance to the Slums. Once the protagonist has committed to performing the first task of the "Paladin Route," all other paths are disabled, but it is possible to do two of the three tasks Malficus sets before you and then change sides. To access the "Temple Thievery Alternative" options, speak to people in the temple about your concerns. SUGGESTIONS: When one deals with dishonorable people, some treachery and double-dealing is only to be expected. Also, when embarking on a new venture, it is always advisable to tie up loose ends first. Thieves, especially, or those wishing to get to know Renal Bloodscalp a little better or recruit a certain Red Wizard, would be well advised to complete all thieves' guild tasks prior to going to the Five Flagons in or making any final arrangements with Malficus. The quest givers of both routes will warn you when you are approaching the point of no return.

    Keldorn Romance

    Version v6


    berelinde's Keldorn Romance introduces a romance for the original BioWare NPC Keldorn. It is compatible with all BGII games: original BGII, BGII:EE, BGT, and EET. He's loyal. He's brave. He's... single? Life is an uncertain thing, and changes come when we least expect them. This mod offers a chance to romance Athkatla's newest... and most reluctant... bachelor. All relationships take work, and this one takes more than most, but the rewards are great, for those patient enough to endure the trials. This romance is not for everyone. It is certainly not a romance for the hasty. When it begins, Keldorn is grieving after the collapse of his 20-year marriage, and it takes him a long, long time to recover. It deals with mature themes, the real consequences of rejection and recovery, and some players may not want to go through all that, no matter how devoted the would-be love interest becomes in Throne of Bhaal. It is also very, very long, with 35+ talks in Shadows of Amn, though the talks are spaced more closely together to compensate for this. To begin the Keldorn Romance, you must allow Keldorn and Maria to reconcile. He will only consider himself free if his marriage to Maria is legally ended, and imprisoning Maria will only separate them, not divorce them. Also, Maria's incarceration might present childcare issues that would be impossible to overcome. The mod also features a quest for all PCs, romanced or not, though that, too, requires a reconcilliation between Keldorn and Maria. Official Discussion Thread Mod's Homepage Readme
  3. Gah. Thanks for reporting. As for customization, I wouldn't count on it. I have to do a rather daunting recode as it is. Anything else, and I'd probably just delete the mod entirely.
  4. If you're still figuring out what you want, I'd think twice about getting a GTX770 video card if you want to run DA2. That's what I've got in my gaming rig. It runs DAO like a champ on max settings, and it does run DA2 on max settings too, but sometimes you'll get weird graphic glitches. This isn't necessarily a performance issue with the card so much as certain textures just rendering wrong (Hightown wall textures, the rust-colored male noble body model, and the female Circle mage robe models). It doesn't happen all the time, and it's generally amusing when it does, but it's something to be aware of. I keep hoping that a driver update will address the issue, but so far, no joy.
  5. Glad it's working for you! When I update to BGEE, I'll replace the IncrementGlobal() actions with SetGlobal() actions, which should fix the issue no matter what other mods are installed.
  6. It's more of a time issue. When I started it, I was unemployed and had gobs of free time. Now, I'm lucky if I've got 30 minutes a day. But I will keep you in mind for proofreading!
  7. The mod, in its current incarnation, is finished in the sense that the content that is there works as intended. The Wall scenes and MotB epilogues work. Provided that the user does not install two mods that affect the same files. That is and has always been the source of most of the problems reported here. Unlike Infinity Engine modding, there is no way to check for components of incompatible mods and alert the user, so players have to do their homework. On a mostly-bare installation, the mod works fine. However, there is more content planned. Domi has written a full Neeshka romance that still needs to be integrated, and I've got a Sand romance in the works that no one should hold their breath over.
  8. First of all, which mod and which version are you playing? On which platform? What you're describing sounds like a script loop. If you're playing BG1 Gavin, the mod has been stable for years, so any script loops would be caused by either a corrupted download or by a reinstallation scrambling the scripts. In either case, the solution is to uninstall the mod, download a fresh copy, and install it again. If that doesn't work, and it may not, I can walk you through a fix, but try installing a new copy first. If it's BG2 Gavin, the non-beta version has been stable for a good long time, so the cause and the cure are probably the same. If you're using the beta version and if you're in ToB, there may be some unresolved issues.
  9. Gavin probably won't be out until next week. I have a very full week at work and won't have time to do anything with the mod until Saturday. But it's up to you! I just wanted to let you know that it may take a little while. But not forever.
  10. Thank you very much, Twani! <3 I'm going to start converting my mods and the rest of those I'm responsible for soon, and I really need to get this sorted.
  11. It turns out that I couldn't do a hotfix without potentially messing up other mods, so I simply versioned up. The new beta is theoretically BGEE compatible, although I'm going to have to ask a friend to test install that since I don't have BGEE. But it installs just fine on Tutu. But the important thing is that the scripting error is fixed. To avoid scrambled strings and other reinstallation woes, please follow these steps: 1. Print out your weidu.log. To do this, locate your weidu.log in your installation folder and open it with any text editor. Notepad will work, if necessary. Print it out. It is very important to have a hardcopy of this. 2. Beginning with the last entry of your weidu.log, uninstall that mod. Uninstall the one before it, and so on, until you reach Garrick's Infatuation. 3. Uninstall Garrick's Infatuation and delete the folder. 4. Download Garrick's Infatuation here and install it as you normally would. 5. Referring to that printout of your weidu.log, install the mod that came after Garrick's Infatuation, and then each mod after that in order. That is important. 6. Carry on with your game. Apologies to hook71! I neglected to fix the typos and grammar errors. This will undoubtedly go through one more version up after the BGEE testing comes back, so I will do them then.
  12. Good timing! I'm going to be looking at these tonight. Thanks!
  13. Uh, yeah. I'm not sure if that was on the fix list, but I will add it. Due to a conflict with another mod, I'm going to be updating Gavin within a day or two anyway (and updating to BGEE). I'll add it to the list.
  14. You'd have to find the block of code Adanedhel posted, change the (12) to (25) and reinstall the mod. I can put a hotfix together tonight, but it will have to wait until tonight. It will only take a few moments, but I need to be home to do it. Ah, yes, this is what it is to be modding again. But it's about time.
  15. Do you happen to know what version of the Romance Pack you're using? I seem to recall a problem with an older version, but not with the newer one. If you check and find that you're using v4, let me know and I'll dig some more.
