aTweaks has been updated to v1.1. In summary, this minor release introduces two new components to the Gameplay Tweaks group and adds the French, Spanish and German translations. Here's the full list of changes:

New in aTweaks v1.1:
  • The "Make druidic shapeshifting uninterruptable" and "Simple Bard script" components have been added to the "Gameplay tweaks" group
  • The "Instant casting for warrior innates" component will now also apply to the Paladin's and Monk's Lay On Hands abilities
  • The "Allow Breach to take down Stoneskin effects applied by items" component will now take into account other mods which change the Stoneskin effect of the Gargoyle Boots (i.e. Item Revisions)
  • The "Slightly expanded storage capacity for containers" component has been moved into the "Miscellaneous tweaks" group
  • Added the French, Spanish and German translations
Note: if you are currently using aTweaks v1.0 then you must uninstall it before proceeding with the installation of aTweaks v1.1. This procedure will not affect your saved games so you can safely continue playing afterwards in case you had a game in progress.

  • Improved compatibility with the "Item Revisions" and "Spell Revisions" mods
More details on the new components can be found in the Readme.

aTweaks has been updated to v3.

This major release adds several new components which are primarily aimed at bringing the Fiends of BG2 closer to their PnP counterparts. Legitimately missing abilities are restored and spuriously granted benefits are removed. The Fiends' AI has been enhanced as well, and it now allows them to act in accordance to their PnP behavior and intelligence scores. Furthermore, summoned Fiends now match the allegiance of their summoner which allows the party to receive experience points for each opponent that the Fiends defeats, but it also applies the appropriate reputation penalty for each innocent that the Fiend murders. Finally, the nature of a summoned Fiend now corresponds to the alignment of its summoner. More information on the Fiend components can be found here. Another new component restores the PnP Scribe Scrolls ability to all Mages except Sorcerers. Here's the full list of changes:

New in aTweaks v3:
  • Added the "PnP Fiends", "Revised Fiend summoning" and "Allow Mages to scribe memorized spells onto scrolls" components to the "PnP Tweaks" group
  • Added the "Give Mariliths their Icewind Dale soundset" component to the "Cosmetic Tweaks" group
  • Added a third option to the "Use Icewind Dale's Dimension Door animation" component. This subcomponent uses the new animation only for the actual spells (Dimension Door and Shadow Door) and retains the old animation for other visual effects such as portal appearances and creature spawning sequences.
  • Balors, Nabassu, Pit Fiends, Bone Fiends and Maurezhi are now handled by the "Distinctive creature coloring" component

aTweaks has been updated to v3.01.

This maintenance release fixes a couple of minor bugs. Here's the full list of changes:

New in v3.01
  • The "Revised Fiend summoning" component will now patch all Fiend summoning spells in a more robust manner which will prevent them from becoming corrupted in case some other mod had given those spells additional extended headers beforehand
  • The Abishai now uses the correct weapon
  • The Maurezhi's Paralytic Touch ability will no longer affect Undead, Constructs, Slimes, Fiends, Trolls and Dragons

  • A more robust patching method for spells, items and creatures is now being used. Among other things, this should speed up the installation process and ensure greater compatibility on megamod installs
  • Depreciated ALLOW_MISSING in favor of modern coding techniques
  • Minor code optimizations

aTweaks has been updated to v3.04. In summary, this maintenance release slightly revises the Scribe Scrolls ability, updates the Italian translation as well as the Forum and Homepage links in the readme. Here's the full list of changes:

New in v3.04:
  • The Scribe Scrolls ability has been slightly revised. Inscribing a scroll now removes one instance of the spell in question from the caster's memory (i.e. just like casting the spell regularly would)

aTweaks has been updated to v3.05. In summary, this maintenance release makes some minor adjustments to the existing content and introduces a new component which enhances the accuracy of alignment detection spells. Here's the full list of changes:

New in v3.05:
  • Added the "Make alignment detection spells more accurate" component to the "Gameplay Tweaks" group
  • Added a new animation for the Plane Shift and Etherealness abilities
  • Ethereal creatures no longer produce audible footsteps and are now unaffected by the Jester's song
  • All Succubi now use their Etherealness and Teleport Without Error abilities more efficiently
  • Kirinhale (the Succubus in Durlag's Tower) is now properly immune to +1 weapons and below
  • Aec'Letec (the Nabassu in Ulgoth's Beard) and Kirinhale were previously missing a few PnP Tanar'ri traits on BG1Tutu. Furthermore, their race entries were set to "Human" rather than "Demonic". These issues have been rectified
  • Constructs, Slimes, Elementals and Undead creatures are no longer susceptible to the stunning effect of the Cornugon's Barbed Whip
  • Summoned Fiends now properly ignore their summoner if he has equipped the Staff of the Magi or the Sensate Amulet, both of which grant Protection from Evil
  • Quasits will no longer use their "Fear" spell-like ability during the cutscene which transports Haer'Dalis and his troupe to the Planar Prison in order to avoid accidentally disrupting the sequence
  • Slightly restructured the patching routine for the "Additional racial traits for Dwarves and Gnomes" components

aTweaks has been updated to v3.1. In summary, this minor release makes some adjustments to the existing content and adds a new component which revises the Bhaalpowers that the Protagonist receives in BG1 (or at the start of BG2) due to his divine heritage. The general goal was to retain the basic roles which the Bhaalpowers had in the original game while simultaneously making them scale a bit better with the Protagonist's level. Here's the full list of changes:

New in v3.1:
  • Added the "Revised Bhaalpowers" component to the "Gameplay Tweaks" group
  • Aec'Letec (the Nabassu in Ulgoth's Beard) will no longer grant multiple XP awards if he is slain multiple times during the battle with the cultists
  • Balors will now use their Symbol, Death ability more efficiently against low level and summoned creatures
  • All Glabrezu will now use their Plane Shift ability more efficiently

Note: this will be the last aTweaks update by me. Subsequent updates and future mod development will be handled by Wisp.

aTweaks has been updated to version 3.11. This release implements a new delivery mechanism for the "Scribe Scrolls" ability (suggested by Mike1072). You no longer need to have party AI enabled to gain the ability and you will now only obtain it when you reach level 9 as mage. The Russian, French, Italian and German translations are also updated.
