  1. A fairly significant known issue with the mod is my head and the time span of a decade without working on the mod. I simply don't remember how and why and when Amber works. There has been so much new mods and content that I have no idea how they might work together. In theory yes of course. But when it does not I might not be able to say why exactly, because I simply don't remember how things work anymore.

    Sorry about that;  in terms of IE modding consider me a in a similar situation as the Nameless One is in life in beginning of Torment. Minus the talking skull.  

    I've been running Amber on a vanilla install of EE and aside from a few non-fatal hitches she has taken the years very well.    


  2. There is a more extensive content report in ToB thread, but currently @Darios is slowly proofreading and editing text that I have written. We are crawling, but not dead I guess? :D 



  3. m#ambermatch is 4, which means that either the CHARNAME didn't meet the romance requirements or there was another romance in "serious" stage when the variable was checked. It's checked right after you start the game with the mod installed. (So that's before you first meet her.) It's been a long time, but if I remember correctly, it's also possible to get that result via dialogue options. But they should be crystal clear and it's unlikely to happen by accident.

    The good news is that the friendship track is fairly extensive too. You might consider playing that if you haven't already.

    The earrings baffle me. They should be a fixed, unremoveable item on her helmet slot. They should be there regardless if you give her her equipment back or not in the joining dialogue.   


  4. Don't worry about your English, it's perfectly fine. :)  

    Can you clarify which version of Amber mod are you using and did you download it from Gibberlings 3 or elsewhere? 

  5. That's of course entirely up to you. :) 

    If you have a save before got the Complete form #1567 from Brega you can send it to me for inspection or I can take a look at Brega's dialogue file (HABREGA) to see if any other mod is tempering with it, but you really should not have the Complete form #1567-item without the #MAmberRescue -global being set at the same time.    

    (Sorry. It's been a decade since I last debugged her so, I'm a little rusty. :) )

  6. I found the problem, though not the cause. 

    The quest variable #MAmberRescue is set to 1 in your save, ie the value it's supposed to be after the little boy and girl talk to CHARNAME about the supposed demon.  It should be 5 and it's set to it in the very same block of code that's gives you the item Complete form #1567. Frankly I have no Idea how that is possible, if the conversation with Brega took place as supposed.     


  7. Ok. Your papers seem to be in order. :) 

    I don’t think we have ever tested getting the form in early chapters and then holding on to it until later chapters. I really can’t say why it would make any difference. And it’s been so long that I can’t remeber how much she was tested with BGT

    I can’t access the mods files before weekend, so unless @Darios has some ideas I really am uncertain why you got stuck. 😕

    if I understand correctly you're trying to filter script block to work on Player2 and only if the character is not NPC. If this is the case you can use following code since PC characters don't use DVs:

        RESPONSE #100
            //do something 


    Oh wow. 😳


    Is this something made possible by EE? Because I feel we tried so hard to solve this back in the day.  The massive dv check was the only reliable way, despite relying heavily on us updating it. 

  9. Thanks for interjection tips! :) 

    The thieflings should be pretty chatty in SoA too, but I really can't remember if some of those banters have specific conditions or not.

  10. For now I've been mapping out what we do have written for ToB. I've also tied up and finished writing bits here and there.

    This is what we have (very slight spoilers):

    12 talks for the P1/P2 romance and friendship tracks. Talks each have their own flavors and variations, depending on which of the three paths they are for. Two of them are partly unfinished and with one I'm not happy with at all; I might have to replace that entirely. 

    All dialogues for 2 (very small) quests have been written; one is an encounter based and the other is very, very small thing for romance only. The reward is a special click-talk dialogue option. 

    In the click talk menu you will have: 
    1. The option to ask her tell (even) more about herself; there will be 5 new topics of which 4 are mostly written. (P1/P2 romance and  friendship)
    2. Flirt with her. 7 new options for everyone, of which 5 have been written. In addition there are 9 options of which 1-3 are available depending on your character's class. 7 are written, 1 is half done and 1 is still missing.  (P1/P2 romances)
    3. Ask to resolve something that happened. This option will come up 3-4 times when something dramatic has happened. 2 of these are written, 1 is a complete mess and the 4th idea I only just came up with. (P1/P2 romance and  friendship)

    Banters: Imoen (2 + 2 with special conditions), Haer'Dalis (7 😳), Aerie (1 + 1 with special conditions), Viconia (2), Cernd (1), Krogan (1), Keldorn (1), Nalia (1), Edwin (1), Jan (1), Sarevok (1 + 1 with special conditions),  Mazzy (1), Jaheira (1). Valygar and Anomen have nothing.  Bonus round: Cespenar (4) while you're in the Pocket Plane. 

    Interjections: Fate Spirit and Master Wraith have bee written, but besides them I only have scraps. I'm planning to leave designing interjections for the alpha / beta testing. I have forgotten too much of the game to figure out good places for her to speak up. Tips on the subject are appreciated!

    Epilogues: a total of 10, all written, no worries here. 3 for P1 romance,  3 for P2 romance, 3 for friendship and 1 general, if none of the other conditions are met.

    As you can see compared to Amber's SoA content ToB will be a much more modest. But ToB isn't that big of a game either and it's rather linear too. 

    Next step for me is to finish the bits that have not been written and for Darios to edit and proofread (round 1) what I have written. This might take while longer.

    Where does she go when we let her temporarily go?


    I thought it was in delosar inn but it's probably a wrong memory because I didn't find her there.

    Old question and late answer, but just in case anybody misplaces her in the future: when removed from party Amber goes to Five Flagons Inn.

  12. Hello!

    I know it's been a while (to put it mildly), but @Darios and I are tentatively looking into the possibility of Amber ToB. No promises of course. But we are alive and kicking.   

    On the positive note I had more writing done that I remembered. Much, much more. The flipside is that I remember next to nothing about anything. 😂

  13. I think that, while I had a very clear vision of what elements, events and feelings wanted to those five now written epilogues to have, putting those ideas into words in a way that satisfied me was next to impossible. I'm glad that the first versions are done now.

  14. Wrote five out of nine epilogues today. I know it's hardly a significant progress considering how much time has gone, but it's something.

  15. Hi, any news ToB part?


    Nope, sorry. :)


    Love the mod, btw. Far superior to many other NPC mods in my opinion.


    Thank you! :suspect:

  16. There's no time limit to retrieve her, but I don't off hand remember if it affets the potential romance. She should be on the first floor of Five Flagons, near the bar. Have you done the bard stronghold quest? I think that might spoil things.

  17. I'd say it's a pretty good bet that it will be done when it will be done. Which cannot possibly be soon enough, but won't be late enough as to disappoint.

    Well said. ???

  18. Download links are messed up. I could only get the link that said "Ambers home page" to work off of this sight and even the links on Amber's web site are the same.


    I downloaded the "Amber's Home Site (Finland)" off of her web site, is that in english?


    I'll hve to re-check the links. "Finland" points to the location of the server, if you live in the states you might get a faster download elsewhere.



    EDIT.: Yeah, on Amber's page at the G3 the mac links point to rar file even though the 2.6 is a zip file. They're correct on Amber's own homepage and on the download thread of this forum, though. The IEGMC sites have not yet been updated yet, it usually takes a while.

  19. Demoneq,

    I've changed versions of the same Mod in the middle of the game before without problems. You have to uninstall the old version first, then remove the Amber files from your BGII folder. Then install the new version. I do wonder if having an upgraded version of WeiDU with the new version would have any effect? Hmmm ...... maby you should wait to try it until Meira gives her blessing.


    It should be fine to install a new version like you described. Unistall and delete the old and then install the new one. If Amber's name and soundset get mixed up simply select her in game and press SHIFT-k. New WeiDU isn't a problem.
