    Installing Music

    I think found the answer myself - here http://forums.gibberlings3.net/index.php?showtopic=14397 It's wierd that thread didn't show up on my searches, I just noticed the title when scrolling through. I think the gist of it is that the music is already in the mod as it installs ... the seperate file is just for us to listen to outside the game If I'm wrong, please correct me - I'm wrong wayy too often

    Installing Music

    I'm having a really bad brain day, so please bear with me if this question has already been answered, or if the answer is really, really obvious anyway How do I install the music for Sarah? I guessed I should unzip the file into one of the folders, but which one?
  3. Don't worry - I'm having tremendous fun with him just as a friend. It's only because of the sexy pic I've been a fan of Delira's work on Deviant Art for a while, and long, pointy ears always curl my toes Actually running him with the Edwin Romance and tortured souls is giving me a great balance of more serious chats, some sparkly by play and some downright silliness. It is truly wonderful to find a tank who's interesting to play and who can hit things seriously hard with both melee and ranged weapons ... at last, a viable alternative to Minsc
  4. I've just started a game with Haldamir and I have one burning question ... are you going to give us a steamy, stormy romance with Delira's deleriously delicious and delectable elf? That pic has me seriously sizzling! On a more serious note - what I've seen so far is great ... but of course it is he's one of yours!
  5. I'm thoroughly enjoying Angelo - and I promise to post a mini review As well as immobile peasants I've had a couple of other minor wierd but funny hiccups For example the dryads have been moving so fast they look like leaves flickering in the wind (very appropriate), and occasionally Minsc starts walking on the spot. I've no idea which of the many mods I'm using cause this, but its not really a problem. Usually I know where to find something, so I know when to reload to get rid of people who wont get out of the *expletive deleted* way
  6. Thanks muchly for the comments Sister V and Berelinde - you've made my day If you want to include this portrait in the pack I'd be more than happy - as they say here in darkest Lancashire I'd be reet chuffed!
  7. Ignore this. I reloaded then wandered off to burgle a nearby house. This time that *expletive deleted* peasant who was standing so very still had moved and guess what he was hiding ... the elusive "small white friend"
  8. I'm kind of stuck. I was trying to get Valygar and do the planar sphere when the oh so familiar "a new quest pops up and buggers up the one I'm currently doing" syndrome struck again As a result I visited my light-of-love in jail and met Sarawa. I agreed to pop in for a chat next time I was in the bridge district. This happened Day 33 Hour 11. However instead of going there straight away I've spent several days finishing the planar sphere and doing some cashing up and shopping. I also went from Chapter 2 to Chapter 3. It's now Day 35 Hour 10. I'm wandering round the bridge looking for "a small white friend" but can't find one. Is there a time limit on this meeting? Or am I just missing something?
  9. I've been having a really great time playing this mod. I'm a very keen photomanipulation artist, so I used one of my own portraits. I think it really fits the way I see Angelo - slightly cynical, tired, world weary but still able to really enjoy life; and of course that wicked sense of humour. The photo has been altered to remove modern artifacts, change the expression and to fit with the colour and style of the bioware NPC portraits - here's a before and after image to show what I've done. If anyone wants the bmp versions of the portrait in all three sizes you can download them here http://www.4shared.com/file/211359831/f18b.../Angelo2-L.html http://www.4shared.com/file/211359855/a0bc.../Angelo2-G.html http://www.4shared.com/file/211359860/fbfb.../Angelo2-S.html
  10. I'd done this and gone round and round the entire family so many times I'd lost count. I was stuck on the second set of answers from everyone. HOWEVER when I came back to Beregost a few chapters later the little girl suddenly stopped telling me she didn't know where it was - and confessed! All is now well in the household and I've got a lovely, rosy glow from being so very, very nice
  11. An excellent idea guys. loads of the information is now out of date because the Wizards keep changing things But it all applies to the BG series. I'll have to see if I can make a less garphics heavy version ... when my brain comes back online properly
  12. It's official. I'm stuck and I am in need of a largish hint. I've talked to both dudleys and their kid. I know about the missing necklace. I've searched the house and its surrounds, I've asked the kid. I've talked to everyone using characters highish in charisma, and ones high in intelligence. I've even bloody pickpocketed everyone ... and I'm still just going round in circles and getting nowhere. Can some kind hearted soul give me a few hints pretty please?
  13. Yep thats me. I had to let the site go for financial reasons - and also it got a bit to hard to keep up all on my own. It was fun while it lasted
  14. Hello all. Sorry this intro is so late. I’m kiwidoc- role-player, photo-manip artist and old age hippy!. I’ve been playing RPGs since the days when Dungeons and Dragons was just D&D, and AD&D hadn’t reared it’s ugly head If anyone is interested I love playing with graphics. I am not a good enough artist to paint from scratch, but I do a lot of photo-manipulation. I like to match the style of my portraits to the style of the official portraits as close as I can get! I’m offering to make portraits for anyone making mods. Here’s some examples of my work using a stock photo as a base – click the thumbnails for full size versions BEFORE & AFTER BG1 VERSION BG2 VERSION This is a portrait seriesI made from a slightly less legal base *blush* - I’ve included some pix to show the differences between the Bg1 and Bg2 versions, and how match with the NPC portraits.

    Gavin the garrulous

    I've got the timer set at 90 minutes - the maximum allowed. I've been from Beregost to Nashkel with no side trips, and then as fast as I could out to the gnoll stronghold. Even while searching the stronghold and battling gnolls I'm still getting a comment or flirt every 10 to 15 minutes. The full list of mods I've got (in order of installation) : Tutu; TutuFix; Tutu sounds; Lost Items (items only); BG UB for Tutu; NPC Project; Gavin; Tweaks; Quest Pack
  16. I'm finally getting to play this mod ... after not having a working PC for too many moons to count I'm enjoying it so far, but I do have one query. Gavin is chatting to me every ten minutes or so real time. Is this normal or is this too often. I am playing Tutu with the NPC project, and with BG2Tweaks (but I have the accelrated banter turned off). I'm a bit worried he'll run out of things to say pretty fast at this rate.
  17. Many thanks for this info I always seem to get poor Haer'Daelis killed, so I'm relived I don't have to play him all through SoA let alone ToB. It's going to be a while till I get to this planned game, but I am really looking forward to it.
  18. I'm doing some long range planning - trying to sort out which mods to use together with which of my proposed PCs. I am definitely going to play Angelo and romance him as well, but I do have some questions that will help me decide how best to use him. Are there any problems playing the ToB portion of Angelo with Longer Road (the Irenicus for ToB mod?) It's strongly recommended to have Imoen in the party - should I take her through to ToB as well? I gather Haer'Dalis has a role to play in the romance - but it's late on. do I need to carry him through to ToB? (I'm trying to figure out how to make space for both Irenicus and Sarevok, and how to avoid ending up with three arcane magic users in the same party)
  19. I've just started getting lovetalks from Kivan, and I really, really like what I see. I'm currently romancing Kelsey, but as I've done that before I'd like to ditch him at the end of SoA, and play The Longer Road with Irenicus as my arcane caster. This means I'd also give all my loving to the moody, broody gorgeous elf *sigh* However before I take such a drastic step in need to know - is Kivan ToB compatible with Longer Road? I'm currently running (in order of installment) G3 BG2 Fixpack Pocket Plane Banter Pack for BG2 (SoA & ToB) Longer Road Kivan of Shilmista Kelsey Getting Rid of Anomen Weimer Item Upgrades G3 BG2 Tweaks Unfinished Business Cross Mod Banter Pack
  20. I'll never be able to look at that pic without giggling now I can just hear him slowly, softly counting to ten ....
  21. Thanks muchly. You've made my day! The second image was a lot harder to make, but I couldn't resist the upward, devoted gaze and the sunburst like pattern behind him.
  22. I've trawled through my embarrassingly huge archive of art and photos to find men in their late twenties. Of course there are ooodles of cute young things, and I've also got a great selection of weary but determined older warriors (think Keldorn!) ... but 28 yr olds are hard to find. I think these two work OK. They've been tweaked for background, lighting, texture, colour etc to make them more like the BG official portraits, and I've also made their noses significantly larger. Message me if you want the bitmap versions. ............... ............... ............... ...............
  23. Here are the two small versions, so you can DL the jpgs and convert to bitmap (or of course meesage me with your email addy). I always tweak the small pix - make them brighter and sharper because just shrinking always make them seem too dark and unclear.
  24. I think my age is showing ... all you young whippersnappers look alike to me *cough, cough, wheeze* I did try to pick men who looked a bit older - granted that so far Gavin has been pretty much a priest rather than a warrior, and he's well fed and healthy. Think Jonathon Rhys Meyes, or Billy Oyd at 28 and you'll see what I mean.
  25. I'm most tempted by Coran - he strikes me as extremely fun and interesting. Xan is a giggle at first but eventually I always get the urge to hit him over the head with a very large brick. I see you can pick up Coran much earlier in the game now ... I've always left him behind as by the time I got to him my team had wayyyy more XP than him. My big worry is the wyverns - will he still demand you go hunting and how soon will he demand it? I'm not keen on hunting wyvers when I'm still only a newbie and wet behind the ears.
