Title: TESTERS NEEDED: Finch v4.0 BETA for Tutu, BG:EE and BGT!
Post by: Erg on July 08, 2014, 08:30:24 AM
I have tested the mod myself on both BG:EE and Tutu, and it should work fine. However I would appreciate some additional testing and feedback. In particular, the mod needs to be more thoroughly tested for languages other than English.

Known issues for which there is no solution (at least for now):
1) the large portrait in BG:EE is a bit blurry. Unfortunately an higher resolution image is not currently available.
2) Finch's Glasses don't do anything (other than wasting a charge) if activated from the "USE ITEM" icon (they work as usual if you right click on the unidentified item and select "SCROLL"). Unfortunately the Glasses behaviour is hardcoded, so there is nothing I can do about that.

Updated version - Download Link: Finch v4.0 BETA 4 (http://cdn.vanillaforums.com/baldursgate.vanillaforums.com/FileUpload/33/edee49677426c473a42636c481d2af.zip)

Added BGT compatibility
 - In BGT Finch is removed from the party during the transition to BG2
 - In BGT the glasses maintain the original name and description to avoid changing the ones in Arledrian's shop

Other Changes (BG:EE)
- Fixed the dialogue with Firebead in BG:EE. Thanks to @jjstraka34 for reporting the issue.

Other Changes (all version)
- Fixed a bug caused by finding her books while she is not in the party
- Fixed a broken token in the dialogue with the Nobleman in Nashkel Manor
- Fixed Finch's sounds during the Prologue in Candlekeep

- Fixed a dialogue bug affecting only BGT and only if Finch, Indira and Dynaheir are together in the party (no need to update from BETA 4 to BETA 5 otherwise)

- Added BETA number to Version (e.g. v4.0 BETA 5) to make easier tracking which version is actually installed

Thanks for reporting here your updates: when Isaya saw your posts here, he started to work on the french test and update.

Updated version - Download Link: Finch v4.0 BETA 6 (http://cdn.vanillaforums.com/baldursgate.vanillaforums.com/FileUpload/88/61b291843c5f9bf13258f53ba2b3c9.zip)

- Added Dream Timer to prevent dream banters (i.e. the coversations that are scripted to occur when the party rests) from firing all at once; Finch borrows, with permission, the Dream Timer code and variables from BG1 NPC Project, like Gavin and other mods designed to work with BG1 NPC Project

- Improved scripts and modified dialogue variables to ensure that dream banters are always executed (even when resting in an Inn and clicking the buttons really fast)

- Fixed order of banters to prevent normal banters from firing at rest and replace dream banters

- Fixed one of the banters with Minsc (now it fires only after Dynaheir has been rescued, as it should)

- Fixed double reward exploit in Firebead's Quest in Beregost when other mods altering Firebead dialogue, like for example BG1 NPC Project, are also installed

- Replaced AT_INTERACTIVE_EXIT with the more up to date README as command to display the ReadMe (suggested by @Isaya)

- Corrected subtitles mismatch for one of Finch phrases (thanks to @Sylvus_Moonbow for reporting the mismatch)

- Moved some strings from .tp2 to .tra files

- French traslation kindly revised and updated by @Isaya

- Removed unnecessary .tra file (the English .tra file contains only ASCII characters, so reencoding for BG:EE is not required)

Great to see update over Miss Finch (even more knowing she is coming to BGT).

That said, no plan to add content as to BG2 (hehe) ? :p

Thanks !

Eden, you are welcome.

Unfortunately there are no plans to add additional content. This is mainly due to the fact that I'm not the original author of the mod, but simply a maintainer. Besides, I'm no writer so I wouldn't be able to create worthwhile content, even if I wanted to :)

If this beta is stable, I think you could ask Kulyok to upload it on PPG site (the same for Indira).

Graoumf, sorry for the late reply. I think I'm almost ready to finalise this mod. As mentioned in this post (http://forum.baldursgate.com/discussion/comment/589348/#Comment_589348), however, there are still a couple of dozens of lines missing in the Spanish translation, so I'll wait few days to see if someone volunteers to translate them.

AL|EN you may be able to reach Erg easier on Enhanced Edition forums. There's this neat little tag (@ symbol) option there. It may speed things up:)

Hi Kulyok,

I'm considering moving the mod on GitHub, for now, as it is still in BETA status. Once WeiDU 240 is out, I'll quickly update the mod, wait a few days to test it and possibly receive feedback. If no issues are found, I will contact you, or some other PPG admin, so it can be finally uploaded on the main site.

@Ireith, still waiting for WeiDU 240.

In the meantime, you can get v4.0 BETA 7 (see link in the first post of this discussion). Despite the beta status it should be fine to play on Tutu, BGT and BG:EE. The only problem I'm aware of, so far, is with the journal in BG:EE v2+, but I need WeiDU 240 to fix that particular issue.
