No I haven't. I just saw it on the Big World list awhile back and have used it the past few installs. I chose the minimal option. Maybe I should leave it off in the future. I haven't noticed a difference either way.

The list for the BGT and EET are two different beasts. And you shouldn't use the BGTs list in the EE games at all. Instead, you should use the noted EET's compatible list as a base. From which the BWS should draw it's iterations.


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.

@haze

My current setup is similar to yours, except kit tweaks and EET of course, I hope modders work together to solve the EET & SCS compatibility issue, really like to play Sandrah saga with SCS...

I did an EET + SCS (+ manually applied BWFixpack) installation (Windows) a couple of minutes ago. All SCS components installed smoothly.

No other mods installed.

I did follow the EET compatible list. I just used the Big World PDF for installation order since the BWS installer is Windows only.

I found a solution. I hate when I search on forums and people say they fixed it, but don't tell you what they did. So, if anybody else has a similar issue to me and google brought you here .... Below is my fix.

 

For some reason SCS files weren't being moved to /stratagems_external/workspace/ssl_out with the Big World Fixpack. Luckily, I had an old BG2 install on an external HDD with the necessary files in /ssl_out. I copied them over manually, reran the SCS installer, and voila .... success. 4 days and many, many, many attempts it was as easy as that. If you don't have those files ask a forum member to zip for you and unzip into the folder. Now off to see if the game will actually play. It did start .... crossing fingers.

So I don't have those files, mind sending them :D

 

Try this SSL OUT. Run the BiG World Fixpack after unpacking your mods then manually copy these files into /stratagems_external/ workspace/ssl_out. It worked for me. After a few failed install attempts I also made a copy of the 07802 folder before running SCS so I could easily delete if it screwed up and just make a copy of the copy and try again. That sped up the process a bit.

EVERYONE should always have a clean copy of their game folder saved somewhere when they attempt this stuff.

Why ?


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.

I don't know if this has been mentioned before (forum search isn't great and I don't have time to read 457 posts) but in SCS 1 with stackable ankheg shells, Taerom pays you per stack, not per shell, then the whole stack disappears (and the feedback appears that the group has lost one item, not several) after you've only been paid for one. This behavior does not display when they are in separate stacks. Presumably this is because he and other such merchants (haven't tested with winter wolves or wyverns yet) check for a stack, not for several shells in one stack.

While trying to install SCS it just stops. I let it sit overnight or when I go to work. when I check it again still sitting at the same spot. It happens during general ai enhancements.

Thanks for any help

Does SCS double melee damage from enemies?
I've noticed Kobolds and Hobgoblins doing 10-12 damage, and Ogre Berserkers 20-25.
I'm playing on Core difficulty. Triple checked it, and SCS mages behave like they should with Core difficulty (no buffing of short duration spells).
 
I tried to Google "double damage" to see if it was a common problem, but the only thing I found was this from the "the Bigg House" ReadMe:

Improved Difficulty System: some mods (including, but not limited to, Ascension, Oversight, Return to Windspear and Ding0's Quest Pack) will make you fight more and smarter enemies according to your difficulty setting. However, these enemies will cheat and inflict double damage.

No mention of how they do it, though.
 
So I decided to reinstall, using BWS. Since SCS takes up about 90% of the install time, I decided to leave it out. And also to rule it out. But when I re-installed the enemies now do normal damage.
So it looks like it's caused by SCS, unless it's some synergic effect with another mod.
 
The only way I know of adjusting creature damage, outside of editing their weapons or STR, is to edit the DIFFMOD.2DA file, which I did with my original install and which worked.
No mods in my mod list edit that file, though.
And ideas?

Can you remove your bad joke from next version,please?

I mean code from beholder_steal.ssl and global_steal.ssl - it makes said shield completely unusable. While also running those scripts constantly since it is set to "0" by default.

I would like to use Balduran shield from item revisions - if it doesn't get stolen.


P.S. Don't listen to The Imp - it is voice of the Devil.

What? That's one of the best parts of the mod. You know you don't have to install that part?
