This mod adds a new merchant who sells various dyes and new outfits.

Dyes work like potions. These can be used by anyone, and will permanently change the user's colours as specified by the particular dye: there are separate options for major and minor colours, leather (belts/boots/straps), armour, decorative items (like belt buckles/amulets) and hair.

Outfits will change the the character's appearance to match the specified class: fighter, mage, thief or cleric. (I strongly suggested that you also install everything from One Pixel Productions.) These can be used by anyone but monks (which would look wonky). Halflings have no mage avatars and will use the gnome mage avatar instead. Half-orcs have no mage paperdolls in the un-modded game, meaning you won't see your character on the inventory screen (unless you install the 1PP update, which adds one).

All changes are purely cosmetic; you do not gain or lose abilities by using anything bought from Rupert's stores.

Rupert should be fully compatible with Baldur's Gate II (with or without Throne of Bhaal), BG:EE, SoD, BG2:EE, as well as BGT, BG TuTu, and EET. He will appear in the Mithrest Inn in BG2:SoA, as well as in Saradush and Amkethran inns if Throne of Bhaal is installed. In BG:EE, SoD, TuTu, BGT and EET, he will also appear in a room on the second floor of the Friendly Arm Inn (the second from the left on the top-left side of the screen).

What's New in Version v3.0.0 (See full changelog)

  • Added rupert.ini metadata file to support AL|EN's "Project Infinity".
  • Renamed setup-rupert.tp2 -> rupert.tp2 to support AL|EN's "Project Infinity".
  • Replaced `AUTHOR` keyword with `SUPPORT`.
  • Added `HANDLE_CHARSETS` function to convert string entries for EE games.
  • Added `REQUIRE_PREDICATE` conditions to avoid installing the mod in inaccurate games.

Inventory icon BAMs in the bam folder that meet these requirements are patched and saved back to the override folder.
