  1. Good to hear. Looking forward to this one as well.
  2. I'll be on this like a fat man at a Vegas buffet. So yes, keep it coming.
  3. Made me proud to be British! I thought the first part - the pastoral scene giving way to the Industrial revolution - was jaw-dropping. And props to the Queen for entering into the spirit of things. The cauldron was amazing as well. But Macca wasn't great - which seems to be a pretty unanimous opinion amongst my Facebook friends.
  4. Jaemal has good content and a nice romance for male or female characters. Diriel is only available to elven females. I believe the others are less fussy, race-wise. Hildury has a mini-romance with half-orc males. It's definitely worth a couple of plays just so you can experience the various characters. Some of the content is heavy going (some of the epilogues are quite harsh, and the Diriel romance will definitely make you go "whoa - did he just do that?") But it's all good fun.
  5. I'm seeing it on the 3rd August at the London IMAX. Looking forward to it very much.
  6. Ha, that's actually a pretty entertaining thread, although those guys are definitely cynical.
  7. Someone might be able to get to the bottom of it if you post your WeiDU log.
  8. Well, that's one step forward, at any rate. I'll look forward to it when it's ready.
  9. Just slightly off topic, but Berelinde - does that mean Keldorn ToB is released? (Or still in beta?) I'd be very interested in that one.
  10. Any progress on a non-beta ToB?
  11. I've now played through both the new paths and want to say, good job! I liked the puzzle box on the naughty playthrough - it felt like a Mensa challenge! It does seem as though Sime will work for anyone, though!
  12. Incidentally, I've subsequently done a couple of playthroughs since with the same tweak mods but no Tyris and didn't get the WK5/Sendai door problem again. It's a weird problem - good job the console lets you work around.
  13. It's a great mod. I tried it for the first time this weekend and was impressed. I went the paladin route and did have a little issue with Bodhi, though. I didn't bother going to see her in the graveyard until after I'd paid the paladins the 15K (and actually, I wasn't there to see her so much as to give Wellyn his bear) and she kept spawning and cursing me. Stutter bug i guess.

  14. Yep. Coran is now a BG2/ToB NPC in his own right, courtesy of Kulyok over at Pocketplane. Darian has ToB content. Haer'Dalis now has a romance (SoA only, currently, but ToB is due around Autumn) over at Spellhold. Tyris also has ToB content. Valygar also has a short romance track as part of Romantic Encounters.
  15. That's probably nothing to do with Tyris. I've had characters duplicate on various different installs. Brus and the mayor of Imnesvale (and his wife) used to be particular culprits but I've actually just seen it in Ust Natha with two Phaeres in the Female Fighters Guild. No Tyris on that install.
  16. Well, on a personal note, I always play ToB. I must admit I find it a bit of a grind but I am a competionist and I like seeing the additional mod content and epilogues. Otherwise it's a bit like coitus interruptus, eh? If a ToB portion is in the works, I won't download the mod until it's included. (I have played a few SoA only mods like Keto but then replace the silent NPC with Sarevok or another ToB only character like Irenicus in TLR or Iylos). (And Jesus, I didn't realise this game had been out 16 years. Now I feel old!)
  17. Really enjoyed the mod, it was very polished. A couple of minor things. Yeah, Firkraag again (you are probably aware of this anyway). After she interjects, he says one thing more and then it's not possible to speak to him again and get him to release Garren's child. Which is OK for every class (since you're going to kill him and Conster anyway) but not so good for a paladin who needs to rescue the child and then return for Firkraag later (otherwise it's not possible to complete the stronghold questline). The other thing is a bit weird and I'm not sure that it relates to Tyris at all. In Watcher's Keep Level 5 (done in ToB), I could not access the Helmite ghost's three gauntlet areas as there was no door/stair icon on the doorways. I was able to get into them anyway via the console "MoveToArea" and I was able to exit them OK. Then after Sendai's death, her teleport gate did not appear either so I had to use the console again to exit her dungeon. I was also running a few elements of UB, ATweaks and G3 Tweaks (but not the Fixpack) that I have used before with no problem: // Log of Currently Installed WeiDU Mods // The top of the file is the

  18. Ha, we have totally different tastes there. My favourites were definitely Angelo, Edwin and Sarevok whereas I found Tsjujatha too self-absorbed (CHARNAME ascended in that game to get away from him!) and Kelsey far too needy (at least in ToB). Eddie is definitely worth a shot because he's hilarious in the mod.
  19. There's quite a few, actually: Kelsey, Tsujatha, Angelo, Xan (elf only), Solaufein (bi-), Faren (also bi-), Kivan, Darian, Arath (SoA only but ToB is coming soon) that I can think of off the top of my head, plus romances for existing Biowares, Sarevok (ToB only), Haer'Dalis (currently SoA only but ToB is in the works) and Edwin. A Keldorn romance is also in development at beta stage. But of course not all of those are to everyone's tastes so more options are always better! I am glad to see mods like this still in development - I can play through BG2 any amount of times if I have a new (and quality) mod to play with and Aklon seems to fit this description. Out of interest, is he being released SoA only at first, or all in one go with the ToB portion as well?
  20. It was a clean install with ToB and patch, on Windows XP. I was also running some elements of UB and ATweaks, but I don't have the WeiDU log any more as I've subsequently played through the game with other mods. Note that I did not have the Beta fixes installed from the Fixpack. I found this old thread about the exact same thing (which also links to an even older thread about it): http://forums.gibberlings3.net/index.php?showtopic=15872
  21. I experienced this one a recent install during the Planar Prison quest - it's the tanarii death gaze spell that causes it. I actually uninstalled the fixpack and started again and it was fine.
  22. I had the PC version of Golden Axe back in, mmm must have been around '91-92 I think. I remember Tyris' big dragon spell. As far as BG2 mods go, I usually gravitate towards the male romances but I am enjoying this very much - she's a well-rounded character (no pun intended, or maybe it was...) in terms of content, good quality voicing, nice music and so forth. She also kicks arse. She does flirt a little bit too often (usually when I'm trying to loot corpses or set up spells and whatnot) but that's a minor quibble. Haven't reached the bonking part yet but it's nicely spicy so far. Good stuff.
  23. Another one I'm glad is still going. Whilst I always loathed Durlag's Tower, I did like the werewolf part of TotSC.
