Bugs and discrepancies in v.6

19 September 2018 - 06:08 AM

There are several mistakes I found in the newest version:

 

~CDTWEAKS/SETUP-CDTWEAKS.TP2~ #0 #1251 // Move NPCs from Baldur's Gate: v6
~CDTWEAKS/SETUP-CDTWEAKS.TP2~ #0 #1252 // Move NPCs to Convenient Locations: Move Eldoth to the Coast Way: v6
~CDTWEAKS/SETUP-CDTWEAKS.TP2~ #0 #1254 // Move NPCs to Convenient Locations: Move Shar-Teel to North Nashkel Road: v6
~CDTWEAKS/SETUP-CDTWEAKS.TP2~ #0 #1255 // Move NPCs to Convenient Locations: Move Tiax to Beregost: v6
~CDTWEAKS/SETUP-CDTWEAKS.TP2~ #0 #1256 // Move NPCs to Convenient Locations: Move Viconia to South Beregost Road: v6

Maybe Readme and first line in above quote should warn that they target Alora now. 

 

[viconi.dlg] created from [VICONI.DLG]

 
[action list near line 17, column 2 of viconi.dlg] PARSE WARNING at line 17 column 1-34
Near Text: )
Not enough arguments to [CreateCreature]. Recovering.
Adding VICONI to internal list of available DLGs

Nothing serious or game breaking I hope. This error happened with last component from first quote. 

 

Change Item Restrictions for Multi- and Dual-class Druids

All games except IWD2, PsT, PsTEE

Multi- and dual-class fighter-druids retain some restrictions on items, i.e. a fighter-druid can't use plate armor.

This is little misleading perhaps. Jaheira was always able to use heavy metal armors.

 

FAILURE:

unidentified game at crossplatform

This happened when I tried to install "Allow NPC pairs to separate" new component.

But unluckily I got second chance to install it  because of some mistake involving "Move Boo out of quick access and into Minsc's pack"  component. This was installed under " Allow NPC pairs to separate"   name it seems. 

I used this version of mod on BG:TotSC game. 

 


[solved] Couple of small issues

19 May 2018 - 01:43 AM

I got this error when tried to install Separate Resist Fire/Cold Portrait Icon into Separate Icons:

 

ERROR: illegal 2-byte read from offset 362 of 362-byte file T-ABIBLK.ITM

ERROR: [T-ABIBLK.ITM] -> [override/T-ABIBLK.ITM] Patching Failed (COPY) (Failure("T-ABIBLK.ITM: read out of bounds"))
Stopping installation because of error.

Will uninstall  32 files for [CDTWEAKS/SETUP-CDTWEAKS.TP2] component 2010

Probably not Anthology fault though, maybe item in question is wrongly coded or whatever. 

Also I think Khalid's hit points from "Khalid fighter-mage" component are messed up, if he starts F/M level 2/1 he should have more than measly 12 points. Fighters 10 + mage 4 / 2 + 3 constitution gives him 10 starting hp. If we assume that he got really bad roll on his fighter level up of only 1 hp he should still had minimal of 13 when his constitution bonus is added ( extra 2 hit points ). For the record, on mage level up he got 3 hp putting him currently at 15 hp for level 2/2.  


Mod incompatibility

13 May 2018 - 05:15 AM

I don't have high hopes that somebody can help me with this but I will try nevertheless. Installed today for the first time GOG Original saga classic game BG:TotSC. Then I installed Widescreen on clean install for the test purposes. On my pleasant surprise everything gone smoothly, but then remembering past experiences with Widescreen and some mods which add new areas I decided to uninstall it and reinstall near the end of the installation to avoid possible CTD. I'm currently beta testing several mods, some of them are not yet publicly released. It seems that one of them is incompatible with Widescreen as I got this problem when I tried to install it again:

 

[./override/T-1002.mos] loaded, 8668 bytes

ERROR: [T-1002.mos] -> [override] Patching Failed (COPY) (Failure("EXTEND_MOS can't shrink"))

Will uninstall 1338 files for [WIDESCREEN/WIDESCREEN.TP2] component 0

Please is there anything I can do to solve this problem, because frankly, playing BG without Widescreen is the real pain in the a**.


Tweaks anthology and Improved inventory BAMs

07 May 2018 - 04:33 AM

I apologize if I completely missed the forum for asking this question but I would like to know are those two ( Icon improvements component and Improved inventory BAMs ) deal with the same issue. IIB mod readme is very spartan and don't reveal many details but my understanding is that Icon improvements deal with items on the ground while IIBams deal with inventory graphics. That means that I can safely install them both without conflicts on my BG:TotSC game? Also while I am at it I wonder is it smart to install Improved inventory BAMs mod in the first place thanks to this topic: http://gibberlings3....showtopic=1353?

Does anybody knows is this issue was corrected? 


Baldur's gate 1 fixpack

06 May 2018 - 06:03 AM

This question is probably shot in the blank as I searched G3 forums for any clue about it, but nevertheless does anybody know where can I found any thread about Sasha al'Therin or plainab's  BGfixpack? Found his site here: http://sasha-altheri...gatefixpack.htm but I'm curios for some in-depth informations.
