  1. Note to translators: There were four new lines in setup.tra and LC_NOOBER.tra for v19.

    SCS updated to 32.4

    This would be really cool, actually. I also completely forgot that he uses 4th wall breaking text, but his presence somehow belongs into Candlekeep imho.

    BG1NPC v23 Bug Thread

    @Kirussen I can't reproduce your problem. The line in question is added by BG1NPC iteself, and only once, so my worry that it might be doubled by some other mod is not true. The problem does not arise if the mod is installed directly "by hand", and also the other mods you listed do not add such a line to BRILLA.DLG.

    BG1NPC v23 Bug Thread

    Thanks, that's indeed a loop.
  6. Ah, I didn't catch you are explicitely talking about unconditioned passback lines (because I obviously didn't look at the example thoroughly enough). BG1NPC had the problem of combining lines for several NPCs where there is no logixal trigger to account for one of them present. Usually, in a mod it is one NPC and then the passback line bears the trigger of this NPC beging present. Since some of my NPCs like to babble a comment into CHARNAME's ear which the original game character isn't even supposed to hear, lest alone comment on it, would it be possible to include the last line spoken by the original DLG as a passback line in your function, no matter the conditions? I can provide examples if you want later when I am back at my computer.

    Especially since the sign itself didn't have a link in the old forum software.

    @K4thos You should have a "share post" possibility if you click on the "connected dots" symbol:
  9. This means the passback line would be spared if no other mod added differently triggered transactions, but would play out like it is now if the line would be needed because of the transactions? That sounds very cool. The main reason I am using I_C_T(3) with passback as a standard is because I can't be sure another mod didn't add more transactions to the dialogue state I am interjecting to. With this function, the added passback would just be a savety measure in case that's the case. For passback line the function just takes the last line with the original NPC talking? What exactly does this do, what is changed in the dialogue, do you mean the dlg? I do not agree that an empty dialogue box wouldn't disturb the flow of the dialogue, though. For me, an empty box would more look like a bug or "mod added". All in all this sounds like a really good thing to get rid of at least some of the passback lines.
  10. In principle, sure! I'm always for crossmod banters. I'll not write any soon, though. Unless other modders contact me, then I'd be available.
  11. Spellhold Studios Fade Fade is a shadow thief, under the employ of Aran Linvail. With her crimson hair, crimson eyes and lashing tail, she is definitely not your regular elf-on-the-street; she is a fey'ri, a part succubus with a temper to match. At first, her reasons for joining the party are unclear - is she a spy? Or something else... The mod is compatible with all BGII games: BGII, BGT, BGII:EE, and EET. Version 5.3 comes mainly with a bugfix of v5.2. Changes: -added reply options to slave traders now compatible (using EXTEND_BOTTOM instead of replacing a whole dialogue state) -fixed stutter after final lovetalk (v5.2) -typo corrections Forum Download
  12. Pocket Plane Group NPC Flirt Pack It doesn't make sense that the BG2 romance NPCs call all of the shots in the relationship, right down to when it is and is not appropriate to show a little affection. Besides, who among you can say that you've never felt Aerie, Anomen, Jaheira, or Viconia just needed a hug? So now things are different. Now your PC can show his/her fondness any time. And the NPCs will flirt back, meaning the romance doesn't have to end after the last LOVETALK. The flirts add hundreds of lines of text and dialogue to all four Bioware romance NPCs. Each NPC has at least one new potential epilogue, depending on the choices the player makes. Version 1.05 comes with a Russian translation by Arcanecoast & AERIE TEAM (Austin, Staylos, Aldark, Alina, Accolon, Vit MG, Toxeus)! The mod is compatible with all BGII games: BGII, BGT, BGII:EE, and EET. Forum Download from the Mod's Page
  13. Jastey's SoD Tweakpack For SoD, EET, and BGT! This tweak pack is mainly meant for the SoD part of BG:EE (except for the last component which introduces Imoen's SoD portrait into BGII). It deals with some tweaks that I found useful for my own game. DESCRIPTION 1 Ending Independent on PC Replies ----------------------------------- This component prevents the "assassin escape" ending to trigger if the deeds of the PC qualify for the "ducal release" ending, independent on whether the PC lists all of his/her deeds at the final hearing. This is also for players who don't want to click through more reply options than necessary. Note: with this tweak the "ducal release ending" will have precedence always if the deeds enable it, without the possibility to trigger the "assassin ending" by the reply choices in the trial. Do not install this tweak if you want to be able to see the "assassin ending" (depending on the PC's behavior at the trial). 2 Do Not Miss NPC-PC Dialogues ----------------------------------- This component deals with the way the lovetalks are triggered in SoD, where they are not timered via time but triggered by area regions when the PC steps on them while the NPC is in the group. If one is missed, the following dialogues will not trigger, either. (Exception for Glint where the first dialogue can trigger in three areas). This means that the player is forced to visit the whole area with the PC as the lovetalks will not be activated by another NPC if he/she is used to scout the area. Plus, the respective NPC has to be in the party in this moment, or the lovetalks will not trigger. This can lead to the situation that swapping around the NPCs along the campaign in the expectation to see as *much* dialogues as possible, the player might end up seeing *none*. This component also triggers non-romance dialogues of NPCs if they are triggered by area triggers (one for Corwin). This component does not change the way the romances are killed by one another. This component has two install options. Note that component "B" includes the changes made by "A", also. 2.A For NPCs in Party Only ------ This changes the trigger of the lovetalk activations from "Player1" to something more general, so that they are also activated by the presence of any party NPC and not the PC, only. i.e. enabling the possibility to scout the area with any NPC and still get the lovetalks. This component is the one that interferes less with the original design than the following one. It does not change the fact that the dialogues are only activated if the according NPC is in the party at the time. 2.B Activate All NPC-PC Dialogues Always ------ With this component, the romanceable NPCs do not have to be in the group in specific areas for the romance dialogues to be activated. If a romance dialogue was supposed to trigger in an area, it will be triggered later as soon as the NPC rejoins the group. Also, it is sufficient that any party NPC steps on the area trigger. Only exception: When going into the portal in Dragon Spear Castle, the romancing NPC has to be in the group to give the final pep lovetalk. NPCs not in party with new dialogue will show a textline once if the PC is close to them, indicating that a new dialogue can be experienced if the NPC rejoins the party. Note: Almost all NPCs have one dialogue each that start with a reference to being in a dark cave which might be a bit out of place if triggered somewhere else. If an NPC wasn't in the group for a longer time, the dialogues will cue and fire one after another after rejoining. 3 Skip Korlasz's Dungeon ----------------------------------- This component adds a non-4th wall breaking possibility to skip the dungeon and head right on to the Duchal Palace. As soon as Imoen finished her introduction to Korlasz' Dungeon, Arkanis from Candlekeep (or, in case he's dead Biff the Understudy!) will approach the PC and offer to do it instead. The PC can accept either with the request of Korlasz being killed or spared, or can tell Arkanis/Bill to wait. If told to wait, Arkanis/Bill will remain at the dungeon's entrance and the player can play on as normal and ask him again later. Once the help is accepted, the original game's transition to the Duchal Palace will trigger including Imoen's dialogue about "it's finally over". All useful items from the dungeon will be transferred to the bedside table in the PC's quarters in the Duchal Palce. There will be no gold transferred. Note: The transfer of items will happen after Imoen woke the player and left. This will take a few minutes during which the game might lagg heavily. Once the item transfer is done, the game will be back to normal. From the bedside table, the transferred items will not be moved with the PC's possessions along the campaign. They need to be put into the PC's chest by hand for this to happen. Also: After accepting the help and Arkanis/Bill telling it's done, there is a short moment before Imoen initiates the final "it is over" dialogue which will transfer to the Duchal Palace. In this moment, the player has full control over the game since some original game scripts are executed to initiate the transfer. Starting a dialogue with one of the characters should be ok and not break anything at this moment but best you are patient and just let it play out. The final dialogue with Imoen leading to the area transition will start by itself after Arkanis/Bill reported their success. The transition from the items from the dungeon into the Duchal Palace is done using slightly adapted code from Argent77's "Skip Chateau Irenicus" mod with many thanks! 4 More Dialogue Choices & Prevent Dead Ends ----------------------------------- This component either adds more reply options or dialogue lines of quest characters to either prevent the player to miss that *one* possibility to ask for something quest relevant or to prevent the PC to have to say something out-of character to be able to proceed with a quest. The component tries to preserve the original game ideas: e.g. if an information could only be received by bullying someone in the original game, added reply options will still reflect this while giving the possibility to proceed without having to act like a total brute. So far, the following instances are considered: -in Ducal Palace Dungeon: the PC will have more reply options that will lead to quest relevant information about the other prisoner. -For the "Traitors in Camp" quest, Miszena doesn't need to be bullied with the brutal physical threats needed currently to provide the needed information. 5 Use Imoen's BG1 and SoD Portrait for BGII in EET&BGT ----------------------------------- This component will change Imoen's portrait to the SoD one at the beginning of BGII. The component is only compatible with BGT and EET. It will also change the portrait for a newly started BGII game in BGT or EET, though. Note: The portrait is changed by assigning a different portrait (i.e. different file name) to Imoen at the start of BGII. It will not be reversible by simply deinstalling the component in your running BGII game. It is therefore not compatible with any other mod that might change Imoen's portrait during BGII (also not temporarily). The changed portrait file names are: BGT: small portrait: c#stimos; medium portrait: c#stimom. For the ToB epilogue, the original portrait nimoenl.bmp will be replaced by a SoD version with this name. EET: small portrait: c#stimom.bmp, large portrait: c#stimol.bmp The portraits are taken from CamDawg's "Continuous NPC Portraits" mod to save me the time of adjusting the sizes to the old engine format. 6 Restore scripted Abduction Scene Fight ----------------------------------- This component will enable the deactivated "unwinnable fight" scene at the end of SoD. The scene was not altered to what is already (hidden) in the original game. The scene will play after the abduction movie and includes an unwinnable fight and the final cutscene with the unknown figures taking away the unconscious group. After that, the game ends and the final credits are shown. This component is only compatible with SoD, as EET already restores this scene by default. Thanks to k4thos for the template how to restore the scene(s), which was taken from EET. Download from GitHub

    How to empty my attachments ?

    @Jarno Mikkola I strongly advise against zipping .debug and. log files, because it decteases the chance of people actually looking at them (I will not spend the time to download and unzip to be able to look at a weidu.log file). Instead, you can copy the content of such (text) files into spoiler tags. Et voilà: even less attachment space needed, even higher readibility.
