I still have this bug described by Lightbringer23, however i can't fix it. I just installed this mod (ver. 4.2.4) on modless BG:EE and for me this bug still appear. Here's my weidu log:


// Log of Currently Installed WeiDU Mods
// The top of the file is the 'oldest' mod
// ~TP2_File~ #language_number #component_number // [Subcomponent Name -> ] Component Name [ : Version]
~THALAN/THALAN.TP2~ #6 #0 // Thalantyr - Item Upgrade: v4.2.4

Like Lightbringer23 said, dialogue option appears in the dialogue tree under "rumors", which disappear after first talk. Can't find THALAN.dlg file, only THANAL.d but there is no "RumorTalkThalan". "Global("RumorTalkThalan","GLOBAL",1" appears only in thalan.tp2 file, but changing it for 0 doesn't change anything.

Etamin, Lightbringer spoke about changing thing in the game, not the mod.

 

You can also set per cheat console:

C:SetGlobal("RumorTalkThalan","GLOBAL",0)

 

every time before you talk to Thalantyr in the game.

Can you somehow fix something in the mod to install it without this bug? Maybe replace "RumorTalkThalan" in thalan.tp2 for this branch of dialogue which not disappear?

EDIT: Ok, i have found out what Lightbriger meant. You have to go to the override folder, find thalan.dlg file, open it with notepad and change "SetGlobal("RumorTalkThalan","GLOBAL",1)" to "SetGlobal("RumorTalkThalan","GLOBAL",0)" (there should be 2 lines like that). After saving changes, "Rumors" branch will appear everytime you talk with Thalantyr.

This is not a bug in the mod per se. It is a change in how BG:EE handles Thalantyr's dialogue. What the mod needs to do is patch more of Thalantyr's dialogue states with the new reply option.

Until it does that, resetting the variable will lead to Thalantyr's first dialogue state always showing.

 

I caution against setting it to 0 inside the dlg, though. There might be other mods that expect Thalantar's later dialogue state to be the true ones, so you might lose on other mods' content if you force his very first dialogue every time.

Setting the variable via cheats might be the most elegant way of doing this, since then it is your choice while playing whether you want to see the Item Upgrade options or the normal dialogue.
