Just noticed something, the "Beta Core Fixes" component of the G3 BG2 Fixpack nulls the XP value of Nishruu and Hakeshars which will currently prevent the "Restore the Dispel Magic vulnerability to Nishruu and Hakeashars" component of aTweaks component from working.

I'll fix this in the next maintenance release.

a couple of spells (spwi707, spwi807, spwi905, spwi703) that add new effects to abilities give an incorrect update to the number of effects (abil_fx_num) if the number of abilities (abil_num) happen to be more than 1, and therefore corrupts the spell.


i think changing the lines (4 occurences) that say

WRITE_SHORT ("%abil_off%" + 0x1e + (0x28 * "%index%")) ("%abil_fx_num%" + %delta%)

to

WRITE_SHORT ("%abil_off%" + 0x1e + (0x28 * "%index%")) ("%abil_fx_num%" + 3)


would fix the problem. since value of %delta% may keep accumulating from previous abilities, i'm not sure it's appropriate to sum it together with abil_fx_num. (number of effects added is always fixed --> 3)

could you please check and confirm this?




rr#dabis.itm is supposed to replace the default weapon for demabi01.cre but the item never gets copied over into the game (~aTweaks/ITM/RR#DABIS.ITM~)



rr#dptou.spl (paralytic touch) is relying on a nonexistent EFF - RR#DPTOU

Confirmed and fixed as of aTweaks v3.01. Note: this could not happen in the unmodded game, but if some other mod had given additional extended headers to those spells, they would have become corrupted.

Both confirmed and fixed.

Thanks for the detailed bug reports, wish I had you on my beta testing team :)

Hello, aVENGER! :lol:

I've been having problems with your 'Slightly expanded storage capacity for containers' component of aTweaks. The component installs fine and there isn't any indication anything's wrong in the WeiDU log or debug file. But when I actually get around to playing the game, the storage capacities of various in-game containers haven't been increased. No matter how many times I tried re-installing, this component simply refuses to... well, do anything, regardless of whether I go with the recommended value (999) or manually input one.

At first, I thought it might be some sort of compatibility conflict with Unique Containers, but the problem persisted after I uninstalled that particular mod. I then tried uninstalling 'Slightly expanded storage capacity' and opted for the 'Bottomless Bags' component of BG2 Tweaks, and that did work. Now somewhat confused, I opened up the respective .tp2's of aTweaks and BG2 Tweaks to compare the code of both components. I'll attempt to reproduce them below.

aTweaks:
/////////////////////////////////////////////////////

      WRITE_SHORT 0x22 999                                                        // set the storage capacity to 999
    END
  END
END                                                                               // end file size sanity check

Now, I'm not the most code-literate person on the planet, but apart from the file size sanity and container storage capacity checks, there doesn't seem to be any substantive difference. So, I tried commenting out the storage capacity check. No difference, the component still had no in-game effect. Next, I tried commenting out the file size sanity check. Voila! The storage capacity of in-game containers increases.

So... err, is there something wrong with the file size check? A typo, perhaps? Or perhaps a freak mishap on my own machine?

Anyway, hope this helps. Thanks for the great mod! :)

I'm unable to reproduce this behavior, both varieties of that component work fine on my local install. For reference, the results can be seen by opening the STO file of a container (i.e. BAG04.STO) with an editor like Near Infinity and checking the storage capacity value.

Also, note that this component cannot work properly on a game in progress. You need to start a new game in order to see any effect.

Very strange. I suppose another mod must be the cause of the issue, although I'm not sure how that could be... I'll try a fresh, minimalist install of the game tomorrow, and see if that makes a difference. I may very well have to resort to a process of elimination.

Yes, I know. Thanks for the reply. :)

Your sanity checks are a little too aggressive. According to the IESDP, the .sto header is 156 bytes long, and you're checking that it's greater than 180. On a mostly-clean install, I'm getting these containers skipped by the component when they shouldn't be:

Your sanity checks are a little too aggressive. According to the IESDP, the .sto header is 156 bytes long, and you're checking that it's greater than 180.


Confirmed, thanks.

I'll change the check to a lower value in the next maintenance release.

Ah, so my own sanity has been vindicated, dubious a notion as that may be. ^_^

In the meantime, I assume replacing the check with something along these lines...

PATCH_IF (%SOURCE_SIZE% > 0x96) THEN BEGIN                                        // file size sanity check (filters out 0 byte files i.e. ALLOW_MISSING)
... would suffice for fixing the files currently excluded?

Not quite. The fixed line should look like this:

PATCH_IF (%SOURCE_SIZE% > 0x9b) THEN BEGIN                                        // file size sanity check (filters out 0 byte files i.e. ALLOW_MISSING)

Thank you very much, kind sir. :)

At first, I thought it might be some sort of compatibility conflict with Unique Containers, but the problem persisted after I uninstalled that particular mod.

Now why would you want to do that? :P There should be no compatibility conflicts - it is just the SOURCE_SIZE check here as indicated.

Ha! Don't worry, Miloch; I've seen the error of my ways. Unique Containers will always have a special place in my install order. :Bow:

Looks like balor's swords still have 15% vorpal chance.

"Distinctive creature coloring" component doesn't seem to affect the gated demons ( I noticed that with a balor summoning two nabassus )

While I'm at it, do you mind give the details of how the fiend summoning does work? When does it trigger? Can you interrupt it? My guesses are it triggers at low hp and can be interrupted and that makes me worry about never been able to see a weak succubus complete the spell, while I'd love to see that :P

That'd be weird (I think I'm wiping all the old effects and re-adding them from scratch). I'll have a look.

Will fix.

It's different for different fiends. Gating is uninterruptable but takes 1 round. Greater baatezu and true tanar'ri have a random chance once they are below 50 % HP and the rest have a random chance once they are below 30 % HP. Additionally, Succubi will attempt to gate, regardless of HP, if they can't charm and make out with someone.
But I'm certainly open to tweaking it, should that de desirable.

3.50

The quasits in the WK room that afaik had fun cast wild magic now stand immobile; no words, no action.

Vanilla oversight that becomes a issue with atweaks: in the planar sphere the tanarri summon a mix of quasits and imps, with blood war conflict.

Ka'rashur ( the named pit fiend ) and Tahazzar ( the named balor ) stands blue circle after his speech; I'm 99% sure I didn't force-talk him, but you can never know :D I actually allied with the balor, the pit fiend talked to me and only allies went hostile. Back to the balor I got my reward, force-attacked one of his minions, everybody but him went hostile

Aasgareth the cambion stops talking to me after the first card has been drawn: I took 'strife', he took 'construct', the tieflings fought the adamantine golem and then nothing happened ( he stands still the whole fight as well); if I click on him no dialogue pops up. I tried again, 'strife' followed by'triumph', same results.

Fixed in 3.52. Thanks.
