stutter bug-how do you get rid of it?
« on: July 25, 2012, 08:20:18 AM »
so i finally encountered the infamous stutter bug. it is so annoying. i tried using the suggestion i found here.

http://www.baldursgatemods.com/forums/index.php?topic=5689.0

that didn't help. i didn't get "running block of such and such" but i know what is causing the problem. it is her checking for items constantly in my inventory. i don't have any evil items anywhere and i still get the stutter. but i have a bag of holding, 3 gem bags, 2 scroll cases, the ammo belt, and the potion case. whenever i remove those things from my inventory, the stuttering stops. whenever i remove saerileth from my party, the stuttering stops.

let me clarify the stutter bug: every 1/2 second to 1 or 2 seconds (depending, it varies), the screen stops and then skips forward. then it repeats over and over.

how do you get rid of this bug? i tried removing everything from the containers and then placing things back in to see if its any single item. but it seems like a gradual build-up as she checks more and more items. it gets worse and worse the more containers i put back in my inventory. but its not like I have a ton of items, except ammo--i do have a lot of koa-toa bolts and bullets +2. i like to hoard ammo, so right now i have about 1300-1400 ammo. but the ammo isn't by itself the problem, because when i remove just that it still stutters, and it's just as bad as before.

and just when i think i have figured out if a particular item(s) is causing the stutter, it starts up again after i save and reload.

all i really know for sure is when saerileth isn't in my party, there's no stutter. or, when i have no containers in my inventory, there's no stutter. everything else is fair game.

btw, i know that this is the third post i've done in 2-3weeks. sorry, but thanks.

Process of elimination, did you try removing one bag at a time to see which one could be at fault?

Yes, I tried the process of elimination. It wasn't any specific bag, it just got worse progressively, no matter what order I put them in.

Edit: It also gets better progressively no matter which order I take the bags out, or the contents of the bags out.

I'll take a look at her script to see why its doing this. There must be some kind of check that isn't going off.

I tried to reset my password. It said that my log-in name, Brenner, didn't exist, and that "the email was already in use." then i tried logging on with a different email and it said "the username Brenner was already in use". ?? oh well.  I just changed my name and email, no biggy.

Thanks for checking that out, Raven. I look forward to being able to play the mod again. (the stutter is so bad that it's unplayable right now)

A remedy to that bag-search stutter could be TobEx. I'll take a look into that "looking for evil items" script also, see if it can be optimized maybe. Not scripted as I thought it was, nevermind.

if anyone wants me to email them the saved game, i could do that to help. other than that, though, i'm pretty sure i'm useless when it comes to modding of any sort.

Should I just dump stutter-leth at the copper coronet? "Th-th-th-th-thou leavest me!!"

According to her script she doesn't like these items and will comment on them:
Necklace of Talos misc4y
Statuette of Lathander misc4x - She doesn't like it being stolen.
Soul Reaver sw2h08 - She'll take it from you and destroy it.

She likes Carsomyr, she'll comment on it.

I am having a similar problem, but where Saerileth and Jaheira both stop walking after an inch or so.  This started after the lovetalk that starts with: "Your eyes find Saerileth, and her sweet, secretive smile seems to reveal a private discourse she holds with herself."  I have reloaded several times, having the lovetalk in different places, with the same outcome.
