Two bugs I noticed in my current playthrough . . .

1. If you romance another NPC (ex. Viconia) rather than Fade; you end up going through the same pre-romance banters with Fade again.
2. She's a Tiefling and can't use Haer Dalis's blades . . . which have requirement Tiefling.


#1 - Does that mean you go through the same dialogues twice? If so that's something that'll have to be fixed.
#2 - The item descriptions may say Tiefling, but they're actually only usable by Bards.

Don't know if you'd call this a bug per se, but I changed the load order of some mods and now Fade is called "...." no matter what save game I load. I tried changing her name back to Fade using shadowkeeper, found the stringRef for "Fade" and set it to that, but now she can't use Fade's amulet and when I got to Spellhold I think she has an interjection because she just repeatedly says "hello there, hello there...." to me. I also tried moving around the load order and removing Wheels of Prophecy, which was the only mod I had added but still no luck!

I loaded the save just before Mallon and he has no name either. Funny thing is his dialogue is all fine, and so is Fade's after you rescue her; they just have no name. I tried to get back exactly the same load order as before but its pretty impossible :( any way I can manually "fix" her?

Thanks

Ok, so I spawned a new Fade and that seems to have fixed things :) had to fix her up with SKeeper but is all looking good. She can wear amulet and had a proper Spellhold interjection. I used ctrl-Y on the broken Fade though is that gonna mess up my romance??

We don't call it a bug, because you did something, what is not good for your stability of your game. If you do a reinstall, then mostly your save games are not working with the new build anymore and therefore such things happens like you have. It is always better to play further with your game and accept the differences or reinstall your game and mods and start a new game.

Well, I found certain spelling errors (Real minor ones) in SoA part

Here are the 3 I found.

First 2 are love talks, 3rd one is the reaction towards the Sphere-selling thief in Slum District
The errors are underlined in red, 1st: Thought should be Though for the 3rd PC response, 2nd: "I didn't so it, ..." should be "I didn't do it, ..."

Hit a few bugs on my current playthrough.

1) After entering the Unseeing Eye section of the sewers, where the Lich's crypt is, after vanquishing the blind beholder, Fade kept trying to initiate dialogue with CHARNAME, but only the Player Initiated Dialogue options would pop up. This repeated until leaving the map.

2) Following the conversation where CHARNAME accepts Renal Bloodscalp's offer to investigate Mae'Var, the "Letter of Introduction" item isn't placed in inventory, meaning the conversation option with Gorch isn't present to open the doors to the back of Mae'Var's guildhall.

3) After the conclusion of the conversation where the retrieved evidence regarding Mae'Var's overtures to the Night Masks is delivered to Renal, all of the Shadow Thieves immediately turn hostile, along with Fade.

Not sure whether this is intentional or even related to this mod or what, but here goes.

I haven't really used NPC mods much in the past, so I decided to drop a whole bunch of them at once. I'm using Tashia, Kelsey, Fade, Keto, and a bunch of tweak mods (baldurdash, g3 tweaks, dungeon be gone, npckit and so on and so forth). I went for a quick Imoen retrieval since she's the final member for my party in this playthrough; after a bit of minor loot gathering from random encounters and such I paid off the shadow thieves and was off to spellhold in as little time as possible (~2 days of game time or so).

At some point after leaving for spellhold--I think it was as soon as I entered the underdark, but I can't be sure--she acquired a Disease that reduced her move speed as if Slowed, reduced her stats (-2 STR, -2 DEX, and something else I think...? She just got kidnapped in my game so I can't check right now). There wasn't any text to go with it that I remember, and at the time I figured it was some feature of her character (as if she had a bad reaction to the underdark or something). After leaving the underdark it was still there, which is kind of annoying since she moves incredibly slow so I have to give her a Boots of Speed to be able to keep up with the party. I tried every dispel I could think of (Remove Curse, Dispel Magic etc) and no luck. After doing several major questlines (the Temple of Helm, Trademeet, Windspear Hills etc) I still have not found any reason for her to have this Disease nor any way to get rid of it.

Any idea what's going on?

To the best of my knowledge, Fade should not acquire any disease or curse that would affect her in such a manner as a result of quests revolving around her. My best guess is that a component of one of your other mods somehow managed to permanently put the disease effect on her, so I would look around and see if you can find any information on this uncurable disease. If all else fails, enable debug mode in-game and use ctrl+R while hovering over her portrait to cure her of all status effects; if that doesn't work, you may need to use ShadowKeeper or some other program to remove the diseased state from Fade.

It just happened to me. After you defeat the Unseeing Eye and take the stairs to the The Old Tunnels ("AR0202"), Fade keeps initiating the dialogue every 2 seconds, but the only dialogue you get is what you can see on the screenshot. It keeps happening until you leave the area completely.

When the taking Lavok out of the planar sphere, after he grants it to you (I'm playing a DD), Fade turns to you and the screen changes positioning like she's supposed to start a conversation, but doesn't. She just says "Yes?" in chat.

It also begins playing the music as it does whenever she starts a conversation with you.

Bug in E3FAD25J.d: The Watcher's Keep interjections all assume that they are happening in ToB, using E3FAD25J for the dialogue. This interjects into GORCHR and other dialogues which are available in both SoA and ToB, without specifying GGT("Chapter",7). The result is that, if you do Watcher's Keep in SoA, the dialogues are broken because E3FAD25J is not available. CF: Saerileth Romance interjections are handled properly, with variants for both SoA and ToB.

Will be fixed in 5.2. Belated thank you for the report.

I'm not sure how to post a screenshot here, IMG link wants a Url. Anyway not really so much a bug but when Fade and Jaheira have a dispute over Main Character, there is a typo in one of the responses. A minor thing just noticed it while reading the banter. The banter goes:

 

Fade: Oh go chew on a tree, Jaheira!

 

the first response option has the word "Apologize" misspelled with a "s" instead of the "z"

Apologise is a preferred version in the UK and is perfectly ok. Note that Fade's original author is from UK :)

Are you'r all talking bout modern English... cause it has no typos, cause it's used world wide and so any misssplelings can be interprited as part of their dialect. Or you would have to convert all the a's to ei's, i's to ee's, e's to ii's and so forth. It's actually horrible language to get correct at... having misspelled alphabet and all that. Yes, the characters are from Latin, while the alphabet is from Greek(well technically Phoenician, which is where the term phonology comes from, ironic, just a bit). And that's just the smallest part of what's wrong with it.

 

Män, sorry this got of topic ... a lots. But one needs to feed to troll something, if you refuse to use fire.

What I am talking is the fact the original author decided to use British English for the most part and as the choice was her to make, I want to point out that it won't be changed.

Got a few issues:

1) I've got a thing to report, don't know if it is reproducible (in my game it is).

Spoiler


2) Getting Fade back after you the event at 1) leaves me with a fade that can't be dialog clicked.

3) The kidnapping seems to have done something to Fade.Unless I go to the cemetery, the romance dialogues don't seem to happen. But If I go there, Bodhi starts the dialogue with me and I fear I may be missing content (does Fade gets kidnapped?)

The irony is thus: 

--> either I go to the cemetery, but Iwon't have the kidnapping

--> or I experiment with CTRL+T and advance time until the situation unlocks itself (with this manner I was able to have one more dialogue)

The dialogue stuckage happened with Fade asking ""sergio, may I ask you something personal"?



4) You offer her your hand, which she accepts, 

If I go to Bodhi after this Banther, Fade gets kidnapped. Issue: I'm not able to talk with the monk (clicking him has no result).
 

 

 

Trying, as alternative CTRL+T and make time pass to see if having advanced another bit the romance may fix this issue.

1. All other reply options lead to original dialogue states. The mod added one is an exact copy of the actions beneath the original dlg ones (although not copied while installation but already inside the mod). So, in theory, all reply options should lead to the same result.

 

2. What do you mean with "can't be dialog clicked"? Fade is not in party but trying to talk to her just gives a "has nothing to say to you"? That shouldn't be possible, since some general condition of her kickout dialogue should trigger instead, so I am confused.

 

3. The dialogue that starts with "~<CHARNAME>, may I ask you something... personal?~" is the 21st romance dialogue. It's triggering is not bound to visiting the graveyard in any way. There is still two lovetalks until the romance gets committed. Romance is not committed yet, hence no Bodhi abduction.
