Good news: over a year ago cmorgan has graciously updated Crossmod Banter Pack: https://github.com/c...Baldurs_Gate_II
Bad news: it's not on the main site yet.
It's working, people are downloading it(slowly), but I'd really like to see it on G3 page, and I guess I'm not alone in this - right? So, I'd really like it done. Would any admin and/or Gibberling consider updating it? I am sure many people would be grateful, including me. If there are bugs, people would report it, and those would be corrected - which brings me to my next point below.
As it stands, CBP is currently dead. I would be happy to maintain it, and here's what I'd do:
- I would start a new thread, and accept fully coded submissions for two released mods, coded according to Crossmod Banter Pack naming conventions, and tested in game! If there's a submission from the older thread that's not coded, the modder needs to code it(they coded their NPC mod, after all). That would mean that all updates would be easy and quick.
- I'd still ask for the confirmation from the other party(unless the author has explicitly stated they're okay with it, in which case, no problem, just give me the link).
- I'd need access to Crossmod Banter Pack G3 page to make the updates, because those would need to be fast and regular, unlike RE(I'm working at the new version of RE at the moment, and it's taking weeks, since there's a complicated new component, but with fully coded stuff for CBP that won't be a problem).
If you G3 folks in charge are interested, great. If not, I would ask that you'd consider someone else(someone neutral) to step up as maintainer, because it's a popular mod, and it really needs to be alive.
