  1. Well, hopefully the time doesn't materialize in that particular way. But many kudos for working on this, and I'm sending care packages of chocolate chip cookies and hot cocoa to everyone's muses.
  2. That'd be great Plus I typically install a whole slew of mods (and Check the Bodies), so it would more than likely be a good compatability test. If a mod doesn't explode into a firey ball visible from space in my install.. it's pretty much got no compatibility problems.
  3. I didn't read far enough to see any reference to Aklon, but I wouldn't pay much attention to what he says anyway. It appears that he enjoys using the anonymity of the internet in order to tear other people down. There is such a thing as *helpful* criticism, and then there's such a thing as simply being a jerk. I think he falls into the latter catagory. Good luck finishing Aklon BigRob! I agree. There is criticism, and then there is being hateful for shits and giggles/just to be hateful. That really annoys me. On a more positive note, I have brought offerings of nutella for the muses in the hopes that they will be especially generous with the inspiration. I'm actually not dead. I think. Night shift does funny things to a person.
  4. You have two options that do not require lots of twiddling. 1. Simply grab the BG1 portraits (resizing one to 210x330 for the epilogue) and name them NJAHEIRL, NJAHEIRM, and NJAHEIRS and drop them into your portraits folder (or overrides, I've found both work) 2. Get Plasmocat's BG1 portrait mod, which does roughly the same thing, but makes the BG1 portrait much nicer and crisper.
  5. How is it going? From what I could glean from the Rosenranken thread, it seems like it's pretty close to complete Any hope for me to bribe my way in? Would it work on BGT as it is now? I'm holding off my installation until he's playable.
  6. Wonderful story ^^ I wish I had lots of constructive, insightful things to say, but that's all I can come up with. I'm very happy to see Janty in there, he's not in all that many fics that I've seen. I'm hoping that there will be a happy resolution between him and Illy eventually. It'll be hard to get there, but... ^^; I'm horrible with my nicknames, I know.
  7. I squee'd so much when I saw this, and read the whole thing right away. Wonderful stuff I really like how descriptive it all is.. I've always loved lots of descriptions of actions and surroundings and little effects. The relationships are also set up really nicely
  8. Gotta say, this would be awesome. I always did like Yoshimo. There aren't that many light-hearted folks in the BG Saga apart from Coran, Alora, Imoen, Garrick and Minsc. Three of those aren't even joinable in BG 2! Haer kind of counts, but he's morbidly cheerful, not silly like them. The global that saves his life amuses me far more than it really should.
  9. Good luck with this, it looks like an interesting concept. I'll be keeping an eye on it!
  10. Same here XD For some reason, when I read that, I can so clearly picture our usually fairly stoic Drow throwing a right nice temper tantrum.
  11. That's the weird thing.. I thought Riz's trumped Diriel's, but Diriel doesn't have a romance active or inactive global showing. I can only assume it was cut off before the romance started proper. I'll try putting both in, though, thanks!
  12. I just felt compelled to do this, since the game itself has some wonderful lines, and the mod just builds on that I'll point out a few: Original Game: 1. Yquong - Why is it that you adventurers are always wondering what's in it for you? Couldn't you, just this once, perform a task without asking how it benefits you? PC - No. 2. Ougamya of Uthgardt - Any idea what's got High Priestess Oria wrapped up tighter than a mummy at a necromancer's love-fest? Mod: 1. PC: Congratulations. How many other banalities have you picked up during your short sojourn on the surface? Rizdaer: A few. I can't very well go around saying 'drider's fodder' and the like, can I? 2. Hildury: Even Sir Nord be wary of you. Salomeya: Oh my, the orc noticed that her fearless paragon of virtue is not above shitting his pants over a drow. 3. (Rizdaer lifts his knee, revealing a hidden stone.) Here's a noble you failed to eliminate. She'll accuse you and call for the whole city to destroy your House. You lost. PC: Look closer, Rizdaer. (There's your stone next to his.) She's dead.
  13. Hey, figured it'd be best to ask this here. I took Diriel and Rizdaer (and a few others, but they're the romance-potentials) along, intending for my CN elf to end up with our boy Diriel.. and I think I flirted with Riz a bit too much because the option to talk to Diriel in private shut down and the option to turn Riz away disappeared. Unfortunately it must have taken a bit too long for me to notice, because I don't have any saves where it's still there (and not there, respectively). ^_^; Is there any way that I can rectify this with the globals without creating a huge fireball visible from space? I think if I can figure out Diriel's romance global, I should be able to restart it and roll back the LTs. Riz's was there, Dir's is not.
  14. Ahhh. Yet another reason I'll eventually have to pick up NWN2, I see
  15. I missed ice cream?? Haven't been around here in a while, great to see stuff's still chugging along, especially with all the roadblocks thrown in the way. It seems you've had terrible luck recently. ^^; Honestly, I'd beg for another spoiler, but I'm terrible with those. I'm one of those people who will take a look at the last page before I begin a book. @_@ *also donates bread, milk and honey* Berelinde > Oh god, I'm seconding the hope that all was not lost. That'd be.. pretty much soul-crushing if I was your shoes. D:
  16. I was hearing bits about a possibility of a snow elf ranger a long while back? Is that still being worked on.. ? I'm just curious. ^^;
  17. Not bugs, per se, but typos Two places in LT 3 Diriel says imbue when I believe he means imbibe (since imbue means to inspire, influence, or pervade) IF ~~ P#RoDi3.6 SAY @155 /* ~I would imbue of you... your wine, if you deem it necessary after trying the water.~ */ IF ~~ P#RoDi3.12 SAY @142 /* ~I implore you to imbue following me.~ */ And, not a typo or anything of that nature, but I find it cute and funny that he says "Ditto." if you remark that the water is fascinating. In LT 5 IF ~~ P#RoDi5.5 SAY @228 /* ~(He kisses your hand with somewhat of an awe.) My... my lady! I had all but lost hope to encounter another person of reason.~ */ Uhh.. was it "something like awe"? I get the gist of it, but the phrasing seems a bit awkward... In LT 6 IF ~~ P#RoDi6.5 SAY @264 /* ~Pride is a commendable character trait until it stands en the way of perfection.~ */ I feel kind of petty pointing that one out. x.x
  18. It's great to see how much you've done with this mod! More authentic d&d flavor for any race would be amazing. I'm biased towards elves but the others would be great as well.
  19. I love them too! My only beef is what Senka brought up.. it seems like you made all of their eyes smaller.. and they just don't seem to fit their faces as well as the old size. It's even more obvious with Aerie, who, as you pointed out via the wiki entry, should have bigger eyes than the average elf.

    Sweeney Todd

    Oh, it was *great*. The singing fit in a lot better than I expected, it really felt a part of the movie and not this forced thing that just had to be done every so often. I learned about it in my music appreciation class and was always interested in it, so I had to see it. It freaked me out more than most horror movies.. I have this weird thing about razors, and many, many throats got it in this movie @.@

    Female Gamers

    I agree. I like revealing armor, robes and clothing.. to an extent. A bit of flesh never hurt anyone. Nearly naked is another matter, and I haven't seen that in very many games at all. Fantasy armor really ISN'T practical armor, as berelinde mentioned, and I think everyone knows it. It'd be nice if there were options for more or less revealing armor/garments available, but the differences would likely not be very much. I mean, female mage robes have a slit up the leg. That's something not unusual in fancy dinner clothing, and is hardly overly revealing. The avatars are too small to really show much flesh, after all. I agree here as well. There can be interesting male or female characters of all types. Men who are physically weak, women who are physically strong, men who simper, women who lead armies. The opposite of these as well. Games have been doing better about having strong female characters, I think.
  22. I'd like to see an interlude styled situation.. whether flirt initiated or LT.. where you do little couple things together. Maybe.. if you are a nature class, you can offer to help her make arrows or hunt up dinner, or you can make up some little snack for each other, something to carry with you as you travel. A present of a little necklace or bracelet that was hand made. Opportunities to tease her about things?
  23. Congrats!! Best wishes for the both of you! ^_^ And Skooter too, of course XD
  24. Finally, BG2 has a real fruit in its list of NPCs. Loaded with potassium!
