Hey guys, I uploaded a new version. ARP v8.3 contains a new German translation by Dachrisma, and also backported some code from BG2EE that I got from CamDawg to make the Better Item Import component on par with the Enhanced versions. Seems only fair, I was the first to come up with that. Even if it was kinda crappy......

 

In other news, after some growing pains and reading up on stuff I'll never use in my professional life, I threw ARP up on the github.

 

https://github.com/S...o/arestorationp

 

I don't actually know how to handle updates on it yet, so a version that won't be needing any for a while seems like a good excuse. But it's there now, and you can do like... BWS stuff......

Heya, congrats on the update! I always held ARP as a must have mod even on a minimally modded game, so I'm glad it's still being updated.

Right on time Alma, right on time  :shifty:

 

A modder is never late, nor is he early, he uploads precisely when he means to

I suppose this harsh reprimand was directed toward Frodo Moddings.  :P

Everyone - thank you for all your explanations regarding the fusion of patches, too bad you dont the idea, maybe someone else can do it? I hope i'll see a combo of fixpack, 2 restoration patches, bigg's widescreen and ghostdog in a single pack someday.

 

Almateria - finished minutes ago my translation for brazilian portuguese, i only didnt translate the changelog because that suck. ;)

 

You dont need to submit it now, wait till something meaningful that deserves a new release. ;) - talking of which you got a patch from Alien at github.

Oh god oh jeez... I think I incorporated it...? DS_STORE files are literally invisible to me, including on github...

 

Anyway, thanks for the translation!

Hmmm, I noticed some errors during installation on the newest version(2.5) of BG2 EE.

 

It happened when I tried to install the "Restored Random Encounters" component.

 

 

WARNING: cannot find block matching [arestorationp/baf/wilderness_original.baf]

 

 

I installed ARP on a clean BG2 EE btw.

 

Any ideas?

Oh, yeah, I noticed that happening and thought it was a one-off thing lol. It apparently isn't though.

 

Don't actually know why it happens because the blocks definitely match!

IF
	OnCreation()
THEN
	RESPONSE #100
		CreateCreature("REBAND01",[488.558],10)
		CreateCreature("REBAND02",[500.454],10)
		CreateCreature("REBAND03",[552.476],10)
		CreateCreature("REBAND04",[427.548],10)
		CreateCreature("REBAND05",[525.591],10)
		Continue()
END

Until I find out the real reason for it, all I can do is shrug and assure that everything else works perfectly!

I found two issues preventing the script blocks from matching:
1) The game scripts don't contain any Continue() actions in the relevant blocks.
2) (EE only) Directions are represented as symbolic names from DIR.IDS. I'd suggest to use a variable in the scripts that evaluates to either a number or symbol depending on the existence of DIR.IDS in the game.

Wow, it really doesn't. I can't believe Bioware would mess up their own script like that, it was all we talked about on the previous page!

 

Seriously thanks though

Almateria - i'd check github once per day if i was you, you got another one from alien. ;)

 

Why he mentions weidu 2.39 when 2.46 is out? http://www.weidu.org...iDU-Changes.txt

a) i dunno

b) i'm not used to using github and frankly i still don't actually know how it works. i don't like the delta patch system github uses. it's all a mess if you wanna upload things.

Okay.
There was a time when I needed to throw up an updated ARP build from 8.2.9 to 8.3, I used the standard git procedure for that. However, the description you need to enter in a commit applies only to the top level folder containing files changed. In short, I ended up with setup files marked as 8.2.9, and the content folder as 8.3, which is obviously not ideal, as I cannot manually change description on repository content, or to have it change on files that did not change.
So... yeah! Advice on that, assuming its something that can be circumvented instead of intended behavior?

Yes that is exactly my point of contention you described. It doesn't matter to me that it's intentionally horrid! It'd be a fuckup in every other place!

This is too stupid and over the last month I've wasted more time figuring out how this crap works. I'm throwing in the towel. There is no explainable way as to why the action of uploading shit online has to be so bad.

 

My github username is ShaktiExceso, my password is sugkem-nazfeB-pagbe3, if someone wants to take care of this they can read all the files, make their own "ssh keys" whatever that is, type silly words in their terminal, steal my data, whatever. I'm done with this. 8.4 is out.

Github has his own GUI for this, all you do is click on a button.

Or use TortoiseGit where you have nice "Right-Click" menu.

I hope you arent serious about this :/ - Quitting because github sucks is a little bit over the top dont you think? ;)

 

Also, you always have sourceforge.net ;)

The actual problem is a missing OS tag in the arestorationp.tp2. This:

 

LANGUAGE ~Deutsch (by Dachrisma)~
         ~german~
         ~arestorationp/language/english/game.tra~
         ~arestorationp/language/english/setup.tra~
         ~arestorationp/language/german/game.tra~
         ~arestorationp/language/german/setup.tra~
LANGUAGE ~Portugues brasileiro (by Felipe)~
         ~ptbr~
         ~arestorationp/language/english/game.tra~
         ~arestorationp/language/english/setup.tra~
         ~arestorationp/language/ptbr/game.tra~
         ~arestorationp/language/ptbr/setup.tra~

 

 

 

should be this:

 

LANGUAGE ~Deutsch (by Dachrisma)~
         ~german~
         ~arestorationp/language/english/game.tra~
         ~arestorationp/language/english/setup.tra~
         ~arestorationp/language/german/game.tra~
         ~arestorationp/language/german/setup-%WEIDU_OS%.tra~
LANGUAGE ~Portugues brasileiro (by Felipe)~
         ~ptbr~
         ~arestorationp/language/english/game.tra~
         ~arestorationp/language/english/setup.tra~
         ~arestorationp/language/ptbr/game.tra~
         ~arestorationp/language/ptbr/setup-%WEIDU_OS%.tra~

 

There are two ways to fix the German version for your install:

 

1. Quick hack: Before installing, go into arestorationp/language/german, and rename the file "setup-win32.tra" to "setup.tra". Then the install of the german Version should work.

 

2. Before installing, open the file arestorationp.tp2 with an editor (e.g. notepad) and change the line

~arestorationp/language/german/setup.tra~

to:

~arestorationp/language/german/setup-%WEIDU_OS%.tra~

Save the file (as tp2 file) and install the mod.

 

Almateria:

I think the "-%WEIDU_OS%" is missing for all language versions in the line "~arestorationp/language/english/setup.tra~", as well.

Many thanks jastey for your try!!

But both ways NOT solved the problem!
