Do TDD(z)!  I'm about to make an EET install, and even with the newer cleaned-up version, I'm not sure whether I would like even that one.  (I share the sensibility of most of these posts so this thread is very useful. :new_thumbs:

Do you perchance have some kind of spell or effect that constsntly refreshes/re-casts itself?

God, that was a long time ago. I don't even remember what it was. Vaguely, maybe, something to do with the "rest until healed" option or one of those rest options. Try turning that off and see if it still crashes. That could narrow down the issue.

The mod is only preserved from v3 on so I don't even have files to compare to find what the fix was... :(

In Topic: Who is doing what to kitlist.2da?

Looks like it is the Wilson Chronicles mod.  Probably what happened is, the author included the "fix" (the comments in the code actually say "just for good measure" or words to that effect) and then stopped work on the mod before the 2.5 update.  And now this will break any mod that comes after that uses COUNT_2DA_COLS on kitlist.2da.

 

Probably worth fixing that in the BWFixPack for the time being.  Meanwhile I'm in the process of updating all of my mods to change every single instance of COUNT_2DA_COLS to get around the malformed kitlist file.  (And my mods do that sort of thing a lot.)

Took a look: some mod is trying to "fix" the GRIZZLY_BEAR row by adding an entry in the KITIDS column... but either it's doing it twice, or two mods are both trying to fix it, or it was "fixed" in 2.5 and the change is no longer needed.  So that one row has 1 columns, and when the typical 2DA parsing code runs COUNT_2DA_COLS it counts 11 columns.   Problem is, READ_2DA_ENTRY_FORMER then evaluates all rows with that column count... which is only 1 row. 

 

So the options are:

 

1) Every mod that reads kitlist.2da should remove the COUNT_2DA_COLS line and process READ_2DA_ENTRIES_FORMER on rows that havea specific number of columns.

 

2) Find out which mod is doing that and stop it.  (I got scared it might be one of mine, because once upon a time I mistakenly thought it was necessary to "fix" the GRIZZLY_BEAR row :new_bottom: ... but none of my mods appear in the proffered weidu.log.  :whistling:
