Hi there!

Thanks to the folks who have resurrected and maintained this mod!

Having a few issues:
1) The pirate who tells me about Velvetfoot is a no-show at the city gates.

2)  Academy of Kuldin - areas to which characters are teleported by the trap on the 3rd level are gated for 'whole-party only' exit, so once someone has been TP'ed, the party can not reunite save with use of the console.
3) Hlondeth - frequent crashes during Birmstone Bridge battle, but I was eventually able to complete it.  However, I had to spawn the warehouse yuan-ti to progress the Blackadder Stew quest.  After completion, I was attacked by Valiant when I entered his shop.

4) Secret Library - pool is clickable but unresponsive, zone can not be entered except via console

Holly the Elf, Melynda the Mute, "Got Ice" all worked fine.

For the Inheritance quest, Mekrath was already dead; I had to respawn him to get his book.

I'd upload my WeiDU log, but it's more than 30MB

It is, yes.  Turns out I had an account here from 10 years ago...I don't even remember playing this game then!
Oh, I didn't mention that Selim Sivad turned up while I was in the Ancient Library.  He asked me 3x to give back his scrolls.  Then the 4th time his dialogue indicated he was going to attack, but I got the "No Valid Replies or Links" and he stayed neutral.

He *kept* turning up, though, like a dozen times or so.  And I never cast any of "his" spells (most of which have been dropping as random scrolls since BG1), so I'm not sure what triggered his appearance (when he never did appear at the Academy.

One possibility--I had just gotten "Use Any Item" as my first HLA on the FMT.  Might be relevant.
Edit (another issue): All the chests I've tried, on the "Horton" quests, have had "The Mechanism that operates this does not have a conventional lock and is warded against all spells."  Visited the Temple of Lathander and the Slaver Compound so far.  Easy enough to just spawn the items, but I shouldn't have to!

Double posting. Please use the edit button instead of posting twice in a row.

it kept crashing my game when the messenger arrived to invite my character to some girl’s coming-out party. Kind of a shame because the content is excellent. I have version 3.0

On an EET installation...  Attached File  SETUP-CTB.DEBUG   721.59K   13 downloads


It seems that the reference to spells and  BG scripts are changed or removed. This leads to errors for several spells.


The errors begin line 4068


[tb#_compile_eval_buffer/CtB/scripts/ctb/CBBDAW02.BAF] PARSE ERROR at line 69 column 16-55

This Forest of Tethyr patch should be included in CtB.  Zelazko has tested it and it's also worked on BG2EE and EET.
