In Topic: Experience Limit?

14 January 2005 - 04:15 PM

There was another post like this some time ago.  I've never been able to find out the cause- and thus haven't devised a solution- as to why CtB limits the xp cap.  

I do know that:

a) CtB does not directly alter the XPCAP.2DA or any file that would inherently limit experience.
B) CtB does not directly alter BGMAIN.EXE or any game engine file- (other than gui game files).
c) weidu biff's the CtB game files at the end of the install.  I believe but cannot prove that it is somewhere in here that the problem is created: not by CtB or weidu directly, but in the way that the new CHITIN.KEY file is created and overwritten by weidu.


So, to briefly summarize and close the topic, I don't know why a game with a CtB install limits xp.   Because of that, I don't know how to fix it and I don't know how to actually investigate it further.  I haven't even been able to come up with a viable workaround.

In Topic: Auto-biffing the .tis files

14 January 2005 - 04:07 PM

Hey CB, long time it has been. Congrats on working things out in this fine mod!  :D

I just made an auto-biffing program for the new bp-bgt elements: CtB, DSotSC, BG1NPCBGT, and SoBH. Included in this is the biffing capability for the CtB .tis files. If you are interested in the .bat files that accomplish this, for a future update of CtB--simply let me know, and I'll e-mail them to you. You'd have to fish out the non-CB entries, but you are the only one using the CB prefix (something that proved very useful when originally building BP ;) ).

Horred-

If I recall correctly, .tis's in the override require the header and biffed .tis's don't (or vice versa). CtB uses the override method, so have the header (or don't as above- I don't remember which way it's supposed to go.) As long as your proggie accounts for this, then sure, send it along. I'm sure you still have my mail; if not let me know as I can't find yours.

In Topic: Unofficial SoS Patches and Fixes

05 January 2005 - 07:15 PM

Unofficial response:  I am impressed with your effort to redo the graphics for a mod that's quite outdated.  Well done.

Official response:  If I were ever to rebuild SoS as a weidu mod (which is not bloody likely), I'd ask you for permission to throw in the fixes.

In Topic: ? Parse Problem with V150

10 December 2004 - 05:23 PM

Whenever you get "parsing errors" regarding files that aren't actually "Parsed", like .sto, .ids, .wav, etc, don't worry about it.  It's just weidu "farting" and won't mess up the install.

Regarding the script parsing (aptp2BLD.BAF), both the proper script command and .tra entry (# 550171) appear in the correct files.  I'm not sure why you would have gotten that error.

In Topic: please HELP it keeps crashing during instail.

Not quite.  CtB uses version 165, the most current is 166, but the changes between the two shouldn't affect CtB.
