I think that there is maybe incompatibility between BG1Fixpack and BG1UB. Though maybe BG1UB has nothing with this and it is sole BG1Fixpack fault. When you sacrifice one companion to that nereid after you hit her couple of times she is supposed to initiate dialogue which brings her ogre master Droth to the scene. Unfortunately I never got that dialogue though she tried couple of times to change color of her circle and say something. Even tried to charm her, without effect. Looking what went wrong I discovered that one of the mods change her dialogue to "correct" it and add some nonsensical Global named "Lastbug". It can be seen here:

Spoiler

Checking variables with SCKeeper I found Global from original game "ShoalHit" but no trace of "Lastbug". 

Don't know which mod add that global but I seen that both BG1Fixpack and component 19 of BG1UB try to correct her dialogue. In present form on my install that quest can't be completed, Droth will not appear and you sacrifice one companion in vain. I deeply regret that I didn't follow my original intent to not bother with her and just practice archery on her for nice hefty 5000 EXP.  :(

The variable "LastBug" is present in the unmodded BG1-TotSC. I don't know if it was present in the pre-TotSC version of BG1. Are you playing BG1-TotSC or BG1 without TotSC?

So that GLOBAL is the part of the original game?  :ohmy: Ugh, I'm way of the mark here.  :blush: I thought that was addition from BGFixpack when I saw in IE that her class script only require "ShoalHit" to start reconcile dialogue with player. I play former, BG1TotSC of course.

Is the variable "ShoalHit" set to 1 and "LastBug" set to 0 (or not set)? If so, can you try force-talking her? Or hit her again?

 

I don't see anything that would be blocking the dialogue from firing. Both BG1UB and BG1Fixpack make the same change to SHOAL.DLG: they add a facing to the CreateCreature action for Droth.

"ShoalHit" and all the rest are displayed properly except "LastBug" which is not set at all. Yes, I tried force talking with her and even charmed her ( dangerous task mind you, that damsel is one dangerous femme fatal ) but she never changed her circle from red to blue because global "LastBug" never triggered for some reason. I'm in no position to repeat the quest however, as I ended her suffering on dry land and left the area long ago.

You know, I thought that I seen it all, but this newest problem with BG1UB left me flabbergasted. So I decided to start new run of vanilla BG:TotSC and naturally downloaded updated versions of mods that I intended to play. When I tried to install BG1UBv.16 windows I saw this:

Untitled.png

and then all my mods locked up, like this:

Untitled1.png

I deleted any trace of BG1UB in BG folder and installed older 15.2 version which was perfectly fine and unlocked other mods. So what in hell is wrong with v.16?  :help:

Nothing is wrong with the mod itself. Does you Windows 7 is 32-bit or 64-bit ?

32-bit. Why sudden discrimination against it ?  :p There is only one download for Win, as far as I can see.  ???

It's not discrimination lol, 32-bits are past, just like Windows XP. There is nothing which prevents you from having 64-bit OS.

 

There are two problems, one that you can't execute weidu 64-bit, second is that weidu 32-bit can't auto-update 64-bit versions and it hangs. The solution is simple: install 64-bit OS to avoid such problems in the future for other mods or:

 

- delete setup-bg1ub.exe
- download http://weidu.org/~thebigg/weidu.exe
- rename to setup-bg1ub.exe

 

Hope that this will help you.

Actually, there are many things which prevent me to upgrade it, I'm not so keen to erase content of whole PC ( even with the backup something can go wrong, it wouldn't be the first time and I can't afford to lose some files from work ) just to upgrade it to its 64 version. But yes, you are right, I'm well aware that time has overrun my trusty old piece of junk of PC. Anyway, I tried second option and it worked like the charm! Thank you for your explanations and help.  :beer:

Hi Greenhorn.

 

Sorry, for the issues with the 64-bit WeiDU. There are mods that require 64-bit WeiDU now (e.g., DLC Merger), so I figured using the x64 WeiDU was the best bet. I also wasn't aware Windows was still doing a 32-bit-only version; MacOS went 64-bit over 10 years ago.

 

I'll have to create a new workflow to also create 32-bit WeiDU archives.

Pure 32-bit Windows installations are rare, but still available (even for Windows 10). Except for specific mods (such as SCS) it is safe to ship mods only with 32-bit WeiDU binaries for Windows.

Btw, DLC Merger doesn't require a 64-bit binary to merge SoD. It is only recommended if multiple user-created DLCs (e.g. made by the DLC Builder) have to be merged with the game.

I've tested this with BG1UB loaded. No problems.

 

What versions of BGEE and BG1UB are you running? Also, are you running any other mods? You only mention BG1UB and UB. So, does that mean an EET install with only BG1UB and UB (for BG2) installed?
