I'm replaying BGT with Isra and Valerie in my team.
Installed are Valerie, Isra, and Isra BG2. (All mods are actual.)

My final team: Isra, Khalid, Jaheira, Valerie, Imoen
After the transfer Isra and Valerie are group members from the very beginning. (They don't need to join!) They are "naked" in the room beneath Jaheira's cage.
This doesn't seem right now. Retries showed similar results if only Valerie or Isra are in the final team.

But it would be a good idea to transfer Isra and Valerie to BG2 by default in BGT if finally joined. It would make sense, too: Both characters belong to Amn and have to report to their organisations. They would like the magical transfer by Belt because of speed and comfort... 8-)
In others cases it would be fine to meet them again (or first time) in BG2 (as is).

(I will place the same Bug Report for Isra.)

Thanks for very good companions!

Well what do you mean this doesn't seem right? You and your whole team were knocked out and robbed by thieves and then given as prisoners to Irenicus ... What in that story line says that Valerie or Isra should not be without items doesn't make sense ?


Yep, Jarno Mikkola. my Mega Mod FAQ. Use of the BWS, and how to use it(scroll down that post a bit). 
OK, desert dweller, welcome to the sanity, you are free to search for the limit, it's out there, we drew it in the sand. Ouh, actually it was still snow then.. but anyways.

I believe it's the fact that they're in the dungeon at all. They've taken different story paths at the end of BG1, and should be in a different place at the beginning of BG2.

Wrong point. They shouldn't be there at all.

Maybe she should leave when entering the Duchal Palace after Saravok's death.
Or - better - following her story she should leave after Saravok's Death (leaving the Labyrinth) to report to the wizards. 8-)

The mod probably doesn't add anything in the way of BGT transition for the NPCs, in which case the default BGT behaviour is to treat them like multiplayer characters (keep them in the party).

Sorry for being so slow to respond!

 

Valerie, at present, does not have BG2 content. I'd say she's 40-50% completed. I moved and started a new job a few weeks ago, and have been dealing with additional computer issues for the past week or so. My time available for modding has diminished sharply as a result and the lovetalk up next to work on is a bitch and a half.

 

The plan for BG2, which Valerie will bring up when you meet her, is that as soon as you returned to the surface the Cowled Wizards pulled her aside for a lengthy debriefing about the events of BG1. By the time that was over with, Charname had already vanished.

 

I don't know anything about BGT transitions for mod NPCs, unfortunately - this is the first time I've heard about mod NPCs getting transitioned to BG2 with BGT.

Is there any way to change this default behaviour in BGT without a reinstall?

Two problems and suggested solutions for Valerie v1.1 in BGT

 

1. The way she is created in Nashkel blocks the chapter3 intro movie and transition

Proposed change

Spoiler

 

2. To get her from the party upon BG2 transition

Add this code to ARAM00.BCS (EXTEND_BOTTOM ~aram00.bcs)

Spoiler

 

If you plan to let her appear in SoA create her BG2 version as you like.

 

I have used and tested both codes when I took her through BG1 and they work, I also applied it to Isra who has a similar BGT issue.
