Looks like it's the "frozen death" component that's the culprit. I played the final battle with Bodhi through a few times with everything else installed, and Bodhi turned cloudy and I was able to stake her every time. But playing through three times in succession with the "frozen death" component, each time Bodhi did not go to cloud form (or turn into a bat), and was not stakeable.

Good work, Gregor. We can only hope now that an experienced modder can come up with a solution. For the time being, I suppose we just shouldn't use the component.

Dunno if this is the best place to ask, but regarding the Imprisonment spell, does the fact that you lose the loot in the vanilla game make the spell balanced? Isn't it a bit cheap if you can Imprison enemies and still get their stuff?

I dunno. What happens normally with nonmagical imprisonment? Well, all your stuff gets stripped before you get thrown in the slammer. If you're lucky and get out, you might get it back. So that effect seems pretty realistic to me.

I didn't invent this mod or that component, I just updated it. Obviously, if you think a component is unbalanced, the solution is not to use it. Seems like it'd be a rather pointless component if you removed that feature though. Or alternately, the bigg's tweaks might have a similar component without the drop feature.

I'm finding that once the vamps are killed, they are not consistently turning into their little fluffy cloud personae, and retreating back to their coffins.

Yeah, this is a problem alright, and it's not just vampires, but any creature that has a Die() trigger in its scripts. Since Die() is the last possible action (usually) a creature can take and it can only trigger once, the Frozen Death component will override any other actions with a Die() trigger (like vampires going gaseous etc.).

I'd like to blame this on crappy coding, but since I only updated pro5's original code with new code from Nythrun and the bigg, I'm not sure if there's a better solution. What can we say - the game engine sucks in a lot of respects. I guess one solution would be just to exclude anyone with a Die() trigger from this. Then maybe conditionally insert the DropInventory into some of the existing Die() blocks, if any are relevant (a lot might not even have inventory to worry about). Since NI reports about 200 script hits (and maybe 5 times that many creatures or more) that might take a while just to do the exclusion.

Yeah, this is a problem alright, and it's not just vampires, but any creature that has a Die() trigger in its scripts.

Well this was pretty stupid, but some small-scale testing seems to indicate a Continue() action in our script block can probably solve this problem. At any rate, it saves me from implementing some ugly hack like I'd envisioned.

Thanks to modder redundancy (:P) I need the following string translated to German and Italian:

@33 = ~An equivalent component is already installed.~

I want to translate this mod. ^_^
But please, I need to know which lines used *in-game* and which lines used *to display components*.
By the first view, I believe that NO lines used *in-game*. Correct me if I'm wrong.

That is correct - it is all DOS/WeiDU text. There is some hardcoded replacement text in lib/p5_spears.tpa but I think it is fine for Russian since it appears to use the same syntax as English for damage text (1D6 => 1D8).

I do not know the reason, but I've found out that in my installation 4 files start to be reported as corrupted by NI after installation of the "Drop Items on Petrification" component.
File: CBUHGVSD.ITM  Offset: 2eah  Error message: 48 unused bytes after Unknown(2e6h)
File: CDSW2H07.ITM  Offset: 25ah  Error message: 48 unused bytes after Unknown(256h)
File: RR#STON.ITM  Offset: 25ah  Error message: 48 unused bytes after Unknown(256h)
File: RR#STON2.ITM  Offset: 25ah  Error message: 48 unused bytes after Unknown(256h)
It is strange that none of any other items are affected in this way.
Miloch, could you have a look at the issue?

Update: They cannot be read by DLTCEP at all (after all mods).

Damn stupid bugs. Who the hell wrote this dismal code anyway? :whistling:

Try this version. I actually tested it with RR's Stonesmasher or whatever it is, which will make a stone golem drop whatever it's carrying when it explodes it into a million pieces, should you actually find one that has any droppable items.

It seems I was too fast... The issue is disappeared - true. But if before RR#STON.ITM was affected only by component 40, now it is affected by 20, 30 and 40. Components 20 and 30 add only effects 27.SPL to the melee ability. Probably another bug...
