  1. OK, taking a look - (I forgot I had so many area and conditional talks; tough to untangle now. They made sense to me when I wrote them, but I think I made a mare's nest for troubleshooting. Thank goodness I wrote lots of comments in the code...). TL/DR - LT 15 is the first one to fire after Underdark if you are doing a long completionist play and have had 14 LTs and 8 LTs. By design, more intimacy = more content, so a Romance talk won't take the place of a friend talk, it will just add on . If you haven't headed for Spellhold yet, that would explain the hangup. /* Aran's FriendTalks Aim, c-aranfriendbg2, %ARAN_FTT% : delays some talks to be only available after chapter 5 is over */ /* This block takes the even variables set in dialog, and advances them to the odd */ IF GlobalGT("c-aranfriendbg2","GLOBAL",26) GlobalLT("c-aranfriendbg2","GLOBAL",39) // shuts down sequence when finished RealGlobalTimerExpired("c-aranfriendtimer","GLOBAL") // Timer Expired GlobalGT("Chapter","GLOBAL",%bg2_chapter_5%) // Not in Underdark, and must fire post-losing-soul OR(6) Global("c-aranfriendbg2","GLOBAL",28) // set up SoA_FT_15 Global("c-aranfriendbg2","GLOBAL",30) // set up SoA_FT_16 Global("c-aranfriendbg2","GLOBAL",32) // set up SoA_FT_17 Global("c-aranfriendbg2","GLOBAL",34) // set up SoA_FT_18 Global("c-aranfriendbg2","GLOBAL",36) // set up SoA_FT_19 Global("c-aranfriendbg2","GLOBAL",38) // set up SoA_FT_20 THEN RESPONSE #100 IncrementGlobal("c-aranfriendbg2","GLOBAL",1) // move up from even to odd END I can't remember if 15 is the sparring match; I probably need to move that one to be available pre-Underdark, as it fits *my* playthrough style. I linger in the first few chapters and delay Spellhold/underdark, and the sparring talk is a nice "alpha-omega" point. It can reinforce a friendship or an adversarial relationship, turn a female PC's attentions towards or away from having a relationship, and the "morning after" three pathways of talks for female PCs makes a really strong finish to a storyline if PC is about to drop Aran W and pick up a torrid romance with another NPC. For the "by the numbers", I have lost track of the gazillion places where ther are interjections and mini reaction talks (thank goodness folks who don't want the whole thing can tell him to stick to only major conversations), but here goes the breakdowns on what I can see right now: ToB CONTENT: 7 Friend Talks including the initial recruiting talk. 7 Love talks including the 1st initial "have your feeling changed" talk that signals that the romance is seen as active and gives PC a chance to disengage unwanted flirts/lovetalks if she is romancing someone else (or not - he happily/grumpily multiromances). No major conditions attached to any of these other than the obvious. SoA CONTENT: Friend talks 1 - 14 fire without Chapter conditions other than not being in Underdark; so FT 1 - 14 could show up all game until they are done. You could recruit him after underdark and still get the main sequence. Underdark suspends the regular talks, and puts up to 5 Underdark-specific friend talks into play (depending on how long you hang around in that chapter and your timer choices). Friend talks 15 - 20 fire after Underdark so that no matter how long PC hangs around town before starting the "end-game" there is content. Romance talks fire independently of Friendtalks (though female PCs can influence Friedtalks into more girlfriendy versions by responses). There should currently be 8 of them in BG2, so it looks like you have hit the end of the specific lovetalks until I get off my tail and get writing again. SPECIFIC TO SPARRING: Just a regular lovetalk - but tthe follow-on for female PCs can be skipped over if something doesn't fire right away. Dude PCs don't have a followup as they don't have the opportunity to take the conversation in that direction, while Dudette PCs can get three potential "Morning After" talks: /* Sparring, females ; Morning After talk : heavy making out or bedding */ /* Sparring, females ; Morning After talk : kissing or making out */ /* Sparring, females : Morning After : disable if it doesn't fire in the morning - identify by global set to 15 */ Hope this helps!
  2. I’m not sure whether to laugh or cry that this is the first thread I see after having to drop everything for RL for a year.
  3. @AL|EN heh - that was silly of me - I should have thought through that more completely
  4. Does LABEL accept .tra references? BEGIN @1007 DESIGNATED 10 LABEL @5207 GROUP @1006 and ACTION_IF (MOD_IS_INSTALLED "BG1NPC" (ID_OF_LABEL "BG1NPC" @127)) BEGIN ? Docs on adding the additional label so that @120 = AranWCore @121 = AranWClassChange etc?
  5. Checked through my notes and the code comments, and this is intended behavior (or rather, it is a limitation of using PIDs this way). The Inn Rest ones are also intended, or rather a logic loophole on my part, as I never thought of them as “free”, but they actually fire without checking for coin or taking it - and neither do the bath house flirts, etc! I’m cool with a free stay The more difficult thing is doing the correct rest movie. If you find any mismatched (like an Inn rest when camping outdoors) I want to fix them. I have a cool “cover all the eventualities in one codeblock by AreaType”, but decided to tailor each one to its expected triggering matching everyone else’s mod code.
  6. Heh. Wow I went overboard on those. Only one of the 5 is an error - I filtered these through several CHAIN s to try to capture other NPCs commentary on him rejoining. The entire set of structures is enough to be its own mod. Dang. Ok, I may need to revisit this after release and simplify it some. Local copy has the one “friendly gesture” line fixed, as it is supposed to fire only if Aerie responds to him rejoining - still has initial state, two intervening fishing nets for other NPCs, and then the action state, which by the “Rule of Three” is one too many. For v2 after release, we can simplify this greatly and simultaneously find more of the BioWare crew to have different responses.
  7. I bet the fix I made to it bypasses the third one - I will recheck and re-enable it!
  8. Thank you for the research! Unfortunately, each one of these states leads from the dialogue state that removes the item. So the sequence is (one example - reply on line 29708 of c-arandialog.d TakePartyItem, go to a2538 - which is the first of the three GiveItemCreate() states.). I am tinkering a bit today, and will have the addition of the Destroy in tonight’s upload. I am hoping that fixes that.
  9. Hmmm. Traced all these down, rechecked - not sure why TakePartyItem(“c-awpkg1”) would fail. I’ll take a second pass tonight to see if there is any possible way of getting the receipt without the package being taken, but tightened this up by making sure each instance of TPI() has an immediate DestroyItem() - ++ @11229 DO ~TakePartyItem(“c-awpkg1”) DestroyItem(“c-awpkg1”)~ + a2548 (a2548 does the GiveItemCreate()) The behavior is correct, except that it was set up with the assumption that you would never have both items at the same time.
  10. The Rasaad/AranW mixup is verified and now fixed in my temporary working files - I’ll post it up tonight with the next update. Apparently WeiDU can’t read my mind when switching between CHAIN and APPEND still trying to figure out what would suspend his flirt initiation script in Underdark. An early version had him skip them, as a Drow male probably would not initiate, but I thought everything was re-enabled; he uses the same flirt timer for all chapters. A puzzle to solve! Cool!

    Congratulations!

    Congratulations on the new mod!
  12. Hmmm - still trying to track this one down. If you use the PID menu to flirt, they successfully use the Underdark versions, right? The report is that he doesn't initiate flirts while in underdark?
