About Topaze

  1. I assume you've found the source of the problem. Could you please explain it in layman's terms and, more importantly, suggest how to get rid of it?
  2. Whoa, thanks for your replies! After two days of silence I actually thought there'd be no answers at all. In any case, I'm absolutely sure I haven't messed with the setting mentioned above, nor with any other setting for that matter. Miloch, I've looked at that page - it also mentions at least two changes concerning planetars, not only devas. However, those changes are not even close to the problem.
  3. Hi! I'd like to ask whether the fixpack changes this aspect of the game in some way. The problem is, I can summon planetars and devas without any limitation (and, since my party includes Imoen, Keldorn, Viconia and me as a very high-level kensai/mage, I can almost fill the screen with Planetars and Devas, should I want to). Actually, I've always thought that this is how it should be, but I've recently found that the game is supposed to limit the number of summoned planetars (and, if I'm not mistaken, devas). I'm not quite sure whether it is 1 per screen or 1 per party member, but some kind of limit is supposed to be in place, unless I'm missing something. It's not that I really need more than one planetar or deva (well, with the exception of tougher Demogorgon, where a bunch of them can be very helpful indeed) but still it bothers me. Oh, and I'm not using Project Image or other tricks. Here's what I have installed: Baldur's Gate SOA with TOB (obviously) Latest TOB Patch BG2 Fixpack 4 (Core fixes and dialogs only) Ascension 1.4.22 (latest release) Happy Patch (the only part part of BG2 Tweaks I have installed) I think that the most probable cause is the fixpack, but Ascension or even the TOB patch could change it as well. Whatever it is, I'd appreciate any help. Thanks in advance!
  4. That sounds pretty interesting (the first aspect, I mean). I don't really plan on kicking anyone out anyway. Is it available as a separate download (or is there a certain file to put in the override folder without installing the other tweaks)? By the way, how does it remove the NPC conflicts? A mean, are they removed altogether, with all dialogs and quarrels, or does the patch simply remove the irreversible aspects of those debates, like killing and leaving. P.S. The really bad thing about Viconia is that the reputation drops by 2 points whenever she joins the party. If that wasn't the case, I'd simply max the reputation out and then take her on, since evil NPCs seem to mind only when the reputation changes to a value above 18 (be it from 20 or from 18) - they don't have any problem joining the group if the reputation is already above 18. Since 20 is the maximum level, I'd simply have to make sure that the reputation doesn't decrease, which is much easier that constantly trying to keep it lower than 19. Alas.
  5. Thank you! However, if I'm not mistaken (correct me if I'm wrong), this "happy patch" makes things a little too happy - to the point of being somewhat unrealistic. I mean, I don't really mind party members bitching about a high (or low) reputation or arguing with each other. It certainly adds to the atmosphere. I just think that leaving the party forever and/or killing each other is a little too much, even in terms of role-playing.
  6. Hello! I'm sorry if this has been asked before. There is a fix called "Evil Override Dialogues", made by Sir Kalthorine Ut Wistan (yes, I actually copy-pasted the nickname). It prevents evil people from leaving if the reputation of the party goes above 18 (the readme states "above 17" but I believe it must be 18). So, what I'm curious about is whether this fix works in SOA areas with ToB installed? Just in case, here's the setup I'm currently playing with: Baldur's Gate II Throne of Bhaal Expansion Throne of Bhaal Official Patch BG2 FixPack v4 (only Core fixes) Ascension Mod (with all those tougher children of Bhaal installed) I want to install that "Evil Override" because I'd like to have Viconia in my party and get a little romance without artificially lowering my reputation every time it's close to 19 - it can be very annoying. And another thing: does this mod only affect reputation-dependent issues? I'm asking because I'd like to have Keldorn in my party as well, and he doesn't really get along with Viconia. If it doesn't, then, I guess, I'll have to figure something out. Is there a way to keep them both in the same party legally (i.e. without mods and cheats)? I don't mind them quarreling but killing each other is certainly too much.
