I give u an example: BG1 Npc project (i think or DSotSC?) adds to the druids in cloackwood forest a spear of fire. So any druid uses it ... is your mod going to take out those spears from them?

Uh, that spear is unique in BG1NPC (the latest pre-release) on one druid. If you got more than one, either you consoled them in or something is wrong we'd need to fix :blink:. (And removing it wouldn't make him much easier - it's his spells/scripts and without those, he was pretty easy to begin with.)

But maybe that was a bad example and you really wanted to talk about DSotSC items (maybe that would be more appropriate in an overhaul revision of that mod though... :huh:)


Yes Miloch, sorry .. i've checked and i took a bad example. But spear of fire is NOT unique. Both Isefia and the other druid (i don't remember the name) use it. THe other druids with them use flame blades.

Well that is bizarre... only Andarthe should have it. And Izefia isn't even touched by the mod, AFAIK - he has a regular staff normally. Can you check it again (but if you do find anything, PM me since it doesn't have much to do with Unique Artifacts :)).

Hey there Gort,

First of all, congrats on your mod! I do agree that BG2 (and BG1 to some extent) can be overkill regarding magic items.

I have a question regarding the Boots of Speed, however: the readme states that by installing UA on BGT, "you have an opportunity to get every artifact you could get earlier. Once in BG1, once in BG2:SoA and once in BG2:ToB. Remember, once only!".

So, if I get the Boots of Speed during BG1 (after a certain battle on Chapter 4) - and then lose them over transition to SoA - does that mean that I won't get them anywhere on BG2? Not even on that part where I can produce one out of Mithril Tokens?

Thanks for reading!

You will have an opportunity to get boots of speed once in BG1 (then lose them at transition), and once in SoA. As for ToB - you will get them from the beginning if started new game, or they will just kept on you as any other equipment if transitioned from SoA.
Though, if you are transitioned from SoA to ToB and DON'T have boots of speed with you - you won't get them in ToB. (I don't think it ever happens, though=))

If you intend to use UA, I'd recommend to wait a couple of days, as a new version will be out soon.

Oh I'll wait for sure, it's so hard deciding on a class/party that it's nice having a few more days to think about it.

Thanks for the quick reply!

Hey Gort,

I like the Idea a lot so I decided to give it a go. It installed with warnings so here they are. I think they result because of the multitude of item packs + stuff that I have in my install. Will update once install is done so you can see what I have going on. Thanks again.

That first warning refers to something changed by SCS. Not sure why a Unique Artifacts mod would be trying to change that dialogue too, but I haven't really looked at it at all.

Tiny bug that can cause area crashes (and does with ar9200.are from bgt):
The ADD_AREA_ITM macro corrects all the offsets, after adding the item.
However, the current_off > itm_off check is not sufficient. current_off may have pointed to the same offset as itm_off and still needs adjustment now. (Assuming itm_num was zero.)

To fix this, I changed lines 127-133 from core/macro.tph from
//correcting offsets
	PATCH_FOR_EACH offset IN 0x54 0x5c 0x60 0x68 0x70 0x78 0x7c 0x84 0x88 0xa0 0xa8 0xb0 0xb8 0xbc 0xc0 0xc4 BEGIN
	  READ_LONG offset current_off
	  PATCH_IF (current_off > itm_off) BEGIN
		WRITE_LONG offset (current_off + 0x14)
	  END
	END

Taimon, that is wonderful. We have not think, that we could get a fix for the v5.2 and now, we have it.

hmm, this one seems to be fixed in the library available here.

edit: there's one more bug: gloves on healing brac20 aren't available in game at all, because dialog of Sir Ryan Trawl is reference as kyle2.dlg, while it's kayl2.dlg in realty

Yeah, it's fixed in the new macro lib. Didn't know about it, though.
There are quite some other changes in the lib, so I don't know if simply replacing the macro.tph is a good idea. (depends on how well it is tested)

Good catch on brac20.
@Leomar:
replace line 19 of core/d_and_baf.tph
OR (~%SOURCE_RES%~ STRING_COMPARE_CASE ~kyle2~ = 0) //Sir Ryan Trawl quest reward: brac20 Gloves of Healing
with
OR (~%SOURCE_RES%~ STRING_COMPARE_CASE ~kayl2~ = 0) //Sir Ryan Trawl quest reward: brac20 Gloves of Healing

The macro fix I posted has the same issues as the SCSII offset correction discussed recently.
One should rather use
//correcting offsets
PATCH_FOR_EACH offset IN 0x54 0x5c 0x60 0x68 0x70 0x7c 0x84 0x88 0xa0 0xa8 0xb0 0xb8 0xbc 0xc0 0xc4 BEGIN
  READ_LONG offset current_off
  PATCH_IF (current_off > itm_off)
		OR ((current_off == itm_off) AND (itm_num == 0)) BEGIN
	WRITE_LONG offset (current_off + 0x14)
  END
END
