Hey, Dont want to annoy, but I'm installing BWS and I cannot for the love of my mother find a working link for Almateria's quest 2.3. Alma, could you have a spare one for a lost soul?

I recommend not installing it because it literally doesn't contain a quest and is just false advertising

COPY_EXISTING slayerw3.itm override
This snippet in v.8.2.8 .tp2 breaks installation of Almateria's Restoration under BWS. If you intent to support classic BG you might want to restrict it to EE installs only.

There's no slayerw3.itm in classic far as I could tell and failure to access it makes ARP uninstall whole "minor restorations" subcomponent.

Excuse me, but I'm afraid that the newest release is somewhat broken... I mean component "minor restorations" cannot be installed beacause of lack of some file :(... In v8.2.7 version this component was able to install. May I ask you to fix that component please?

Same problems here, "minor restorations" subcomponent cannot be installed successfully. This is only happening on vanilla BG2 games.

Hello Ms. Almateria! Do you know when your mod will be compatible again with BWS this year? I hope I'm not bugging you asking you this.

The mod is compatible/supported by BWS. There is one component that is not compatible with non-EE games (see previous posts). You need to confirm this manually in BWS if you insist of installing it nonetheless. That is all.

It probably isn't the proper solution, but until Almateria has time to fix this, you can modify the code so that it doesn't try to copy the nonexistant file:

Open the file setup-arestorationp.tp2 and find the code that deals with slayerw3 (line 2485 if i remember correctly). Then you can either delete this little part of code, or better surround it with a action_if clause that only tries to copy this file if it exists. It will look like the following (essentially you only add the first line with action_if and last line with end):
 
ACTION_IF FILE_EXISTS_IN_GAME ~slayerw3.itm~ BEGIN
COPY_EXISTING slayerw3.itm override
LPF ALTER_ITEM_EFFECT
INT_VAR
check_globals = 1
match_opcode = 18
parameter2 = 3
END
BUT_ONLY
END

Hi Almateria, idk if you were asked many times about this (sorry if i'm being annoying because of this) but i wanted to know if you ever thought of merging your pack with this one:

 

http://www.pocketpla...d=101&Itemid=80

 

I'm sure you got your reasons in case you rejected this (i'm curious why ;) ) but why 2 packs instead of one? Also, If those 2 packs were merged with bg2 fixpack into a single package where the installation could be divided in 2 sections, one for fixes and the other for the restorations it would be even better. ;)

I feel like having a section for fixes is superfluous in both mods right now as Fixpack is now back in development haha.

 

And I uh actually haven't been asked that much! Since. Well. On SHS ppl don't really suggest that much i guess. Mutual courtesy? Like nobody told Vlad that installing baldurdash is such a weird requirement?? From other people I think like most people knew I am an incredibly prideful person and prolly wouldn't be like me to like... acquiesce to a bigger mod that's been going on for a while! Anyway other things are: UB wasn't updated in 7 years at the moment of ARP's conception so it looked like a lost cause. Last thing is: I actually don't agree with some choices UB made with restorations! Stuff like... Kalah's promise and a few other components feel very uneven in their writing, and just feel like a pretty poor addition that feels like authorial addition, that has nothing to do with what, for me, restoration is about. I'd be fine if there was UB and UB+ version, like with Wesp's patch for VtM: Bloodlines, right, but I, myself wouldn't implement stuff that does not have a supported mechanical source. Like this is IMO the difference between Minsc's quest and Haer'dalis's quest. First one doesn't feel in place.

 

fuck i hope this is intelligible i'm so fucking high i'm burning in exosphere.
