I wish a "Skip SoD" or "SoD be gone" component

26 January 2017 - 01:37 PM

Hi,

Short :
I don't know if you consider to make a new version of EET Tweaks one day, but if you do, I wish you add a way to go from Sarevok death to Irenicus's Dungeon (without playing SoD part).

Long :
Maybe you already read here once that I don't like SoD (I don't remember the thread, but... who cares...). I don't say SoD is bad, but I don't like it (I don't really wish to argue/polemic...).
Since EET requires SoD, I started few times EET from the begining and stop each time around Chapter 8 (sometimes even sooner...). I wish to continue BG2EE part, but I am not in the mood to go through SoD :(.

I don't ask an EET version that doesn't require SoD (It would require far too much work for only few people*... Anyway, I bought SoD, so I still have it, so I can use it when installing EET :) ).
I don't ask you to spend hours to make something story-wise but something that is the most simple for you to make/support.

As an example, in my very first EET run (this forum did not exist yet... SoD was not available...), I remember that when you have killed Sarevok you were directly teleported to Irenicus's Dungeon (no picture, no text). Can you add a component to EET Tweaks that "restore" this behavior ? or something that add a dialog to Imoen at the very beginning of SoD-prelude that skip SoD ? IMHO, a component like this could fit EET Tweaks.

I hope you can do something about this, but I would understand you don't : your time is precious and it seems it's not worth* a modder do something about it. There is already a "Skip Candlekeep" and a "dungeon be gone", what about a "I bought SoD but I don't want to play it anymore :)" ?

*I sometimes read here or there that I am not the only one to dislike SoD (moreover, not always for good reasons...), but I also know it doesn't happen very often...

Hi,

Little bug in Tweak Anthology with EET (but it seems than Vanilla BG1EE is also concerned) : When going out from the cave under Candlekeep, the chapter stays at number 6 (where it's supposed to become 7).

The details : The first time I encountered the bug (it was bg2_tweaks) : http://gibberlings3....=27796&p=242637
The Manual "fixing" : http://gibberlings3....=27796&p=242665
The 2nd time (it was Tweak Anthology) : http://gibberlings3....=28161&p=247881
The fix still works :)

The Change-log (EET part) :

Mods affecting BG2626.BCS:
00000: ~CDTWEAKS/SETUP-CDTWEAKS.TP2~ 0 1101 // Do Not Reveal City Maps When Entering Area: Beta 5

(well... it's obvious that this component could have something to do with the removal of Explore() :) )

K4thos, who know what he is speaking about, suggests me to link his analysis of the problem here.
So, here it is : http://gibberlings3....=28161&p=247922 .
 

If you need something else, just ask : I kept a savegame before going out of the cave.

Hope that it helps.

Help with "notification" in this forum

28 February 2016 - 12:02 PM

Hi,

 

I double-checked my settings... But the notification (by mail) does not work for me.

This is particularly uncomfortable with private message...

 

Am I the only one to have this kind of problem ?

 

Thank you.


Question about installation order

25 February 2016 - 03:22 AM

Hi,

 

I am about to start a new EET Installation (now that SCS is available !!!) but I wonder where should put  mods that are supposed to be installed very soon (according to BWP) but after EEt (according to "Mod Compatibility List for EET"). I also wonder witch of SCS and EET_Tweaks should be installed first ?

 

Here is my install order (mix between BWP and "Mod Compatibility List for EET") :

01. BG1EE (the game)
02. Dark Horizons
03. Baldur's Gate Mini Quests and Encounters
04. The Lure of the Sirine's Call
05. The Stone of Askavar
06. BG1 Unfinished Business
07. BG2EE (the game)
08. EET
09. Almateria's Restoration Project
10. Unfinished Business (patched)
11. BG2 Tweak Pack (patched)
12. Sword Coast Stratagems (patched)
13. BP-BGT Worldmap

 

So now, where do I put these ?

 - Dark Side of the Sword Coast
 - Thalantyr - Item Upgrade
I guess I can put them just after EET (between 08 and 09). what do you think of this ?

 

And what about EET Tweaks ? Before or after SCS ?

 

Thank you for your help :)
