Almateria - Do you intend to add more stuff to ARP in the future or is this over?

I think it's over. I don't know.

If I was better at writing I'd probably write some sorta post mortem about ARP and this whole modding thing, but I'm really not. It's why I didn't take upon the task of writing new content based purely on inferred stuff, like whatever the yellow dragon's eggs was.

 

I think the last big thing to add would be the paused plot about putting Jaheira in a druidic stasis during the Baron Ployer plot but I've never figured out how to do it without it murdering the romance. And it's buggy enough as it is.

i see, i'm wondering if you ever thought about these stuff in the 1st post:

Since they couldnt do it perhaps you (or somebody else here) could. ;)

 

Also, i updated my translation with a translated changelog/improved previous translation of the changes. It's some threads back.

Hello, Almateria.

 

This ARP piece of code:

 

COPY_EXISTING ~ar0602.bcs~ ~override~
  DECOMPILE_AND_PATCH BEGIN
    REPLACE_TEXTUALLY ~ActionOverride("Malaaq",MoveBetweenAreas("AR0601",\[345\.591\],SE))~ ~ActionOverride("Malaaq",TakeItemListPartyNum("IMPORT02",1))~
  END
    
COPY_EXISTING ~idemon01.cre~ ~override~
              ~idemon02.cre~ ~override~
  REMOVE_CRE_ITEM ~sw1h01~ ~sw1h02~ ~sw2h16~
  ADD_CRE_ITEM ~sw2h16~ #0 #0 #0 ~NONE~ ~WEAPON1~ EQUIP TWOHANDED
    
COPY_EXISTING ~idjinni.cre~ ~override~
  REMOVE_CRE_ITEM ~sw2h16~
  ADD_CRE_ITEM ~sw2h16~ #0 #0 #0 ~IDENTIFIED~ ~INV1~
  WRITE_ASCII 0x250 l-import #8

 

seems to  be the culprit about the two Sword of Chaos bug experienced by one user here.

Hello! Please add a Russian translation to the mod (in the attachment archive)

Hello! I remind you of this and ask you to include the Russian translation in the release, please! Our translators and players are still waiting for this! :(

Felipe: Your transations contain the fl#utf8.mrk and utf8-fomratted tra-files. Please attach a version with all files in ANSI like they are needed for the original engine. Thanks in advance!

 

Salk: If I understand the problem correctly, the script AR0602.bcs should be patched so that Malaaq does move to the air plane and not be in teh library instead, and he should not receive the sword "sw2h16" (Chaos Sword) via tp2, is that correct?

 

Austin, prowler: thank you, I'm looking at the new version and the Russian translation now.

More or less correct, I have no idea what I was thinking there lmao. Irenicus-related things usually get worse playtesting from my side because I  just 

really don't like the area

Eventually I figured out I should just steal code from EE to do that, but my bit rot has already started to take hold by that point lol.

Hi Almateria, thanks for your reply. Do you recall why both cambions get patched with the Chaos Sword? Are they not both available in the game at the same time? (idemon01.cre and idemon02.cre).

EDIT: Debugging this will take me a moment. I see that the moving of Malaaq should happen via the assigned script "l-import" that's patched to his cre. For some reason, this seems not to work.

On the middle/beginning on a quite "ambitious" (i guess for me) EET installation.

 

I gathered few infos concerning Almateria install order. And i am still hesitating where to put this mod.

 

First i got the v8.4a posted on page 25 or 26 of this thread. The offiicial download link links to the version 8.4 of Almateria.

 

Where should i install this mod ? (before Questpack for sure and before EET_end).

 

Should this mod go before UB ?

 

I was initialy planning to install this mod almost at the beginning (right after EET Core with other atypical content mods and before UI/quest...). I am not sure anymore. Any recommandation ?

ARP goes early, albeit I am not sure how early so I'm no help, and the 8.4a is probably better than the current 8.4.

If someone could provide the files attached here in ANSI (i.e. the needed format for classic IE BGII), I'd be grateful.

From my understanding, Almateria's Restoration Pack (ARP) if playing on EET should be placed soon after EET core.  Perhaps Almateria will help us more.

I tend to install it after UB, since the file baseline for my work was a copy of BG2 with fixpack and UB included. Leonardo always seemed to agree, except for one version where it was literally the first thing to install.
