In my game, Taerom actually tells you he can improve the helms of truth with a ring of princess, an opal and 5000 gold coins. 

Does anyone know from which mod this new content was added? I was checking my weidu and it didn't give me any informations



Spoiler



Edit: The answer is The Vault.

Low hung brow, dazed look on your face..... It appears that you are correct, my friend. You are indeed a complete imbecile.

For that reason, the util "change-log" is usefull, and is included in bwp. Open the game with nearinfinity, go to "find... (cre)". The search will show the name of the file of the creature -or item or spell or store-. With the name of the file, open bwp install, select the utils, change-log, put the name of the file and then a new folder will be create, with a file listing all the mods than modify that file, and the backups of that file -you can open the backups with nearinfinity to show every change made, correlative-. Usefull when you try to search what is wrong, or what mod is modifing something. Late, but better than never.

Thing is, the --change-log won't reveal the mod, if it's from a single mod, as there it's original source, and so the files copy/addition won't be revealed from a log. As in, this exact thing is the short fall of the log.


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.

That´s need a bit more explanation. Sorry Sergio for didn´t do that before (and thanks for the greetings), since the problem was solved even without any help, maybe others needs to be more specific with changelog, i just only mention the tool. If some mods modify the dialogues of a creature, but actually don´t modify the creature ITSELF, then you don´t need make a changelog of the creature, you need to do a changelog of the creature´s DIALOGUE file. In this case, taerom.dlg. How you know the name of the dlg of taerom? With near infinity, again with the search function, just open the "cre" file searched before and in the first screen you will see the name of the files related to that creature. Look, i make a changelog of taerom.dlg right now, with an instalation of bg trilogy:

 

[WeiDU.exe] WeiDU version 24600

 

Mods affecting TAEROM.DLG:
00000: /* created or unbiffed */ ~BG2FIXPACK/SETUP-BG2FIXPACK.TP2~ 2 0 // BG2 Fixpack - Arreglos del nucleov10
00001:  ~SETUP-BGT.TP2~ 2 0 // Baldur's Gate Trilogy - N£cleo1.18 (28 Apr 13) BWP Fix
00002:  ~SETUP-VAULT.TP2~ 3 0 // The Vault v7 (modificado por erebusant para compatibilidad con BGT)v7.2 BWP Fix
00003:  ~CDTWEAKS/SETUP-CDTWEAKS.TP2~ 8 3230 // Taerom Makes Additional Ankheg Armor (Icendoan/grogerson)v8
00004: /* acted upon in an undefined manner */ ~GENERALIZED_BIFFING/GENERALIZED_BIFFING.TP2~ 0 0 // Generalized Biffingv2.2

 

Correctly, the mod is the vault. This example was easy, but when you make a changelog, for example, for davaeo.cre, the results are a little... mess, because there´s many mods than affect davaeorn, even scs (i did that because the problem related with the missing key in his inventory). Changelog is a really powerful tool, but of course you need know the name of the files, first. So you need another program for it, i choose near infinity because is very simple, but there are others.

I know, I was one of the very first ones to promote the darn thing, adding it to my MMFAQ and all that 10 to 8 years ago. And by the by, it's called "--change-log" because that's the command given to the weidu(.exe) to produce the .log .
