Dark Side of the Sword Coast / Problems with the Dark One quest
« on: March 04, 2021, 11:25:18 AM »
Not sure if this is supposed to happen but I managed to kill The Dark One in the first try ( LICH.cre I suppose ), only meat chunk remained. But after that I couldn't proceed with the quest. PHANT2 didn't say anything nor I could enter in the house. Dark one was nowhere to be found on the map. Manually inserting GLOBAL "LichResurected" enabled me to talk with the phantom and I could enter the house. But after returning with life essence jar Lich again failed to respawn. Only when I created LICH2.cre with console I was able to finish this quest. Oh, and all six phantoms still remained on the map ( didn't left the area to well deserved afterlife).
P.S. I am playing old vanilla BG:TotSC.       

Dark Side of the Sword Coast / Spell icons completely messed up
« on: April 26, 2020, 02:17:56 PM »
It took me awhile to find which mod does that. DSotSC for some reason change spell icons, for example Protection from magical weapons has Monster summoning icon and so on. Nothing game breaking but it is killing my eyes...

Well, Bub Snikt is the first curious example. I will list others as I pick them up eventually. Lets see, if you pick him up initially at the second level he only has 3 proficiency points.  His 6th level version has correct number, 6 points with 3 in bastard sword, two in longbow and 1 in TWO HANDED WEAPON STYLE !!!  :o >:( ;D
It is not complete waste in my game as I can use bastard sword with two hands if I wish but still...

Dark Side of the Sword Coast / CTD using Elgenon's bramble
« on: September 28, 2019, 12:52:09 PM »
As the title says, using Elgenon's bramble range ability results in:
ASSERTION FAILED! Return Address: 0x9FFB75 File: ChVidImage3d.cpp Line: 899 Expression: FALSE Message: CVidCell::FXRender3dSetPalette: LoadFrame() failed
Discovered on Tutu platform.

I really can't comprehend reasoning for weapon proficiencies for Tutu DSotSC NPC's but they are horrible mess.  In most cases NPC's have fewer stars than their level allows and what they have is.. how to say this politely... idiotic. There is no single reason to pick up any of them and this should be corrected as soon as possible.

Dark Side of the Sword Coast / Crash in the battle with Davaeorn
« on: July 19, 2018, 11:14:53 AM »
I found many, many, maany bugs in the Dark horizons and DSotSC for vanilla BG:TotSC but so far none was CTD until I encountered this. It seems that his script is overridden by one of the scripts from DS, specifically mage9.bcs. Among other things ( yeah, it prevents his "bad guy" speech also) one of the spells which this script is force casting ( I really, really hate this kind of thing, instead of his memorized spells he got force spells which are  uninterruptible, if one of them is corrupted it is real pain to end this fight fast enough without some metagaming dirty tactics ) is spider summoning which is new spell coming in DS package. Problem with this spell ( from my testing ) is that when you summon low levels spiders ( huge ) there is no problem but if you reach high enough levels ( Davaern is 13th level ) then phase and sword spiders come into the fray. When that happens game crashes. Probably some problem with animation or very less likely, if two of them come instead of just one.
