I'm getting the following error message, when installing the component "Banters, Quests, and Interjections"

[BG1NPG/Phase2/baf/P#FW2700.BAF] PARSE ERROR at line 34 column 1-35

Since getting this error I've discovered the optimal install order, and plan on doing a clean uninstall and reinstall in that order, which may help. I have installed Tutu and this mod on previous computers and not had this issue, though I have never used the newest form of easyTutu, so I may have messed something up there.

Can anyone tell me what I've done wrong or what to do to fix this?

Also, I tried to attach the debug file but apparently that isn't allowed, if having that would help, let me know where to submit it ^_^

[DisplayStringNoNameHead] not found in ACTION.IDS

This action, DisplayStringNoNameHead, is only available in Throne of Bhaal. BG2 Fixpack doesn't add it to ACTION.IDS either, so I believe this action really is ToB specific.

Do you have ToB installed on your computer? Did you have it on other computers?

I'm going to have to repair that for folks who don't have ToB.

I'm getting the exact same error and I have full, new and patched versions of SoA and ToB

Did anyone ever solved this? I'm having the same problem and I have installed and patched everything according to the instructions.

This should be easy to fix, and since it's not fixed yet, I'll insert the code that can fix it, hoping that it can be used by those who need it, aka SoA Tutu players:


APPEND ~Action.ids~ ~262 DisplayStringNoName(O:Object*,I:StrRef*)~ UNLESS ~262 DisplayStringNoName(O:Object*,I:StrRef*)~
APPEND ~Action.ids~ ~346 DisplayStringNoNameHead(O:Object*,I:StrRef*)~ UNLESS~ ~346 DisplayStringNoNameHead(O:Object*,I:StrRef*)~


The best way to apply the fix probably is to open the bg1npc.tp2 file, go to line ~1680, you should see this:

BEGIN @1007
  GROUP @1006
  REQUIRE_FILE ~override/X#BG1NPCCore.G3~ @1004 /* BG1 NPC Required Changes component is not installed. */
   COPY ~BG1NPC/Core/X#component.xx~ ~override/X#BG1NPCPhase1.G3~
   COPY ~BG1NPC/Core/X#component.xx~ ~override/X#BG1NPCPhase2.G3~

Add the above code after all that and save it.

Welcome to the sanity, you are free to search for the limit, it's out there, we drew it in the sand.
Here's how to install all the ... mods you ever really could want to Infinity Engine games. I removed the stable word from there as Roxanne began to add BS mods that are likely to break compatibility from the BWS.
