Hi Red! I've got some little suggestions for your fixpack :)

1. It would be better if you gonna to make it in WeiDU. WeiDU is now most universal install/uninstall tool with many options.
2. You should separate CORE fixes (these true bugs) and optional components - never mix them :)

1. I am going to make a Weidu version at some point, probably in the summer when I get more time on my hands. Even these fixes were done over an extended period of time. But since there aren't many mods for IWD, it shouldn't matter anyway wether its Weidu or not.
2. Hmm, interesting idea. I might do that in a future version.

Ditto on this point. True fixes most players will accept, and a few tweaks (i.e. the Bishop and Black Knight) that bring items into line with PnP. Most tweaks, however, are preferential to the maker, and not necessarily acceptable to the user. Separating the fixes from the tweaks will allow the user to choose the tweaks he/she desires, or doesn't desire.

Best of luck. A fix pack is definitely needed for this game, especially since Black Isle no longer exists to maintain their games. 8)

In my next version (hopefully, a weidu version) these will be separated. I had no way to do it in the first version since it is a non-weidu mod, with dialog.tlk file included. The dialog.tlk is the same for tweaks and fixes.
