I *think* so, though I haven't looked into it too thoroughly.  It may over-complicate things.  DRUIDAD.DLG  is a good place to see what I mean.  There's one other I've run across, though I'm not sure which one, that also involves the scenario--CECHALLE.dlg, I think.

OK, someone refresh my memory if you could...

When you enter Bodhi's lair in Chapter 6, and you see the faction that is there to aid you (Shadow Thieves, clerics, Radiant Heart, Drizzt, etc.), do they say anything to you?  The reason I ask is that all of the .dlg files for the people who meet you down there (c6arkan, c6cler1, c6cler2, c6cler3, c6drizz2, c6eric, c6will) have false()'d states where their greetings should be. 

Here is an example from c6arkan.dlg (Arkanis)

Quote
IF WEIGHT #2 /* Triggers after states #: 2 3 even though they appear after this state */
~False()~ THEN BEGIN 0 // from:
  SAY #53486 /* ~The assassins are here to support your battle, <CHARNAME>, as the Shadowmaster has commanded.  We will do what we can.~ */
  IF ~~ THEN EXIT
END

EDIT: Drizzt and Eric have their *exit* dialogs false()'d, not their greetings:

Quote
IF ~False()~ THEN BEGIN 2 // from:
  SAY #55916 /* ~So it ends. The evil is slain. You have done well, friend. I bid you fair journey!~ [DRIZZT09] */
  IF ~~ THEN DO ~EscapeArea()~ EXIT
END

Quote
IF ~False()~ THEN BEGIN 2 // from:
  SAY #55918 /* ~It was a grand battle, friend. I must return to my duties elsewhere. I am proud to have fought this evil with you.~ */
  IF ~~ THEN DO ~EscapeArea()~ EXIT
END

I am going to remove cechalle.dlg and druidad.dlg from the list.  They involve other party members being able to challenge for the Druid Grove.  I think that's something that would best be handled by Kish's NPC Stronghold mod, unless anyone disagrees.

dadrow12.dlg is the dialog file for the Overseer Handmaiden in Ust Natha.  The false()'d states are as follows

Quote
IF ~~ THEN BEGIN 14 // from: 13.0
  SAY #57326 /* ~You still owe me. I demand Compensation. Another plaything, or the sum of 2,000 gold. That, or you die.~ */
  IF ~PartyGoldGT(1999)~ THEN REPLY #57344 /* ~2,000! Very well, but you are an absolute slave driver.~ */ DO ~TakePartyGold(2000)~ GOTO 15
  IF ~~ THEN REPLY #57345 /* ~I cannot afford that right now.~ */ DO ~SetGlobal("OverseerMoney","AR2200",0)~ GOTO 18
  IF ~False()~ THEN REPLY #57346 /* ~I have a replacement for your amusement. I purchased it just recently.~ */ GOTO 16
END

I'm guessing that you can "donate" the monster/creature that you can purchase from dadrow16.cre.  The variables involved appear to be:
  • Global("GnollSold","AR2200",1)
  • Global("TrollSold","AR2200",1)
  • Global("SpiritSold","AR2200",1)
  • Global("UmberSold","AR2200",1)

Can anyone think of a reason why this might have been cut, and, if not, have any objections to having it restored?

The false()'d states in daleson.dlg are as follows:

Quote
IF WEIGHT #2 ~False()~ THEN BEGIN 34 // from:
  SAY #40182 /* ~Good day to you, my <PRO_LADYLORD>.  You remember your stable boy, Daleson?  Glad t' see you carryin' on after Lord de'Arnise... an' not them Roenall folks.~ */
  IF ~~ THEN EXIT
END

IF WEIGHT #3 ~False()~ THEN BEGIN 35 // from:
  SAY #40183 /* ~Well, my <PRO_LADYLORD>, maybe Nalia made a mistake puttin' you in charge.  Hopefully she changes her mind before you ruin everythin'.  I ain't stayin' though.~ */
  IF ~~ THEN DO ~EscapeArea()~ EXIT
END

IF WEIGHT #4 ~False()~ THEN BEGIN 36 // from:
  SAY #40184 /* ~Hullo, Nalia.  Good t' see you're in good health an' all.  You done well for Lord de'Arnise, you have... hopefully this <CHARNAME> rules as good as your father did.~ */
  IF ~~ THEN EXIT
END

IF WEIGHT #5 ~False()~ THEN BEGIN 37 // from:
  SAY #40185 /* ~Nalia... don't you think this has gone on far enough?  <CHARNAME> ain't no <PRO_LADYLORD> t' follow yer father.  Almost rather'd see a Roenall here than that sort.  Think about it, girl.~ */
  IF ~~ THEN EXIT
END

IF WEIGHT #6 ~False()~ THEN BEGIN 38 // from:
  SAY #40186 /* ~Hullo to you, <SIRMAAM>.  Just Daleson, the stableboy, here.~ */
  IF ~~ THEN EXIT
END

They seem to be different responses possible after defeating Tor'Gal and possibly taking the Keep as your stronghold.  These could likely easily be restored, but it'd required looking at the various GLOBALs that are set after Tor'Gal's defeat...

This is the contents of the firkra03.dlg file.  It's is used by firkra03.cre, which I can't find used anywhere.  It would seem this has to do with the voice of Firkraag that taunts you in Windspear.

Quote
BEGIN ~FIRKRA03~

IF ~NumTimesTalkedTo(0)
!Class(Player1,PALADIN)
~ THEN BEGIN 0 // from:
  SAY #34227 /* ~You walk in my realm now, <CHARNAME>. Come to me, and this will end. Your crime against me will be answered, even in your ignorance. Come, to your death.~ */
  IF ~~ THEN EXIT
END

IF ~NumTimesTalkedTo(0)
Class(Player1,PALADIN)
~ THEN BEGIN 1 // from:
  SAY #34228 /* ~Come, paladin, and know who has destroyed you, piece by piece. Your crime against me will be answered, even as you are ignorant of the deed. Let us play.~ */
  IF ~~ THEN EXIT
END

IF ~False()~ THEN BEGIN 2 // from:
  SAY #34377 /* ~The hero retreats! You are very bad at this game, <CHARNAME>. Cower as you will, I will wait and watch while you live with your cowardice. I have the patience of a thousand years behind!~ */
  IF ~~ THEN EXIT
END

IF ~False()~ THEN BEGIN 3 // from:
  SAY #34378 /* ~The wise <PRO_MANWOMAN> retreats! Go, hero, and tell people of your failure! Live with it! Hold and caress it, for it is truly yours! I will watch and wait, and welcome you back when you regain your nerve! I am very patient. Very patient.~ */
  IF ~~ THEN EXIT
END

Is there a trigger to see if the party is retreating?  I'm not sure all of this could be implemented.

Something else about which I could use some memory refreshing...

After you have the gem you're to take to Raelis, and H'D is in the party, does anyone recall him leaving if you do not deliver the gem after a certain amount of time?

Quote
IF ~PartyHasItem("MISC6X")
Global("HaerDalisGemQuest","GLOBAL",4)
GlobalTimerExpired("HaerDalisHaveGem","GLOBAL")
~ THEN BEGIN 24 // from:
  SAY #291 /* ~I beg of you! We must deliver this gem to good Raelis ere she and I are trapped in this foul drama forever! Let us make haste to the Five Flagons!~ [HAERDA85] */
  IF ~~ THEN DO ~SetGlobal("HaerDalisGemQuest","GLOBAL",5)
~ EXIT
END

IF ~False()
//PartyHasItem("MISC6X")
//Global("HaerDalisGemQuest","GLOBAL",4)
//GlobalTimerExpired("HaerDalisLeaveGem","GLOBAL")
~ THEN BEGIN 25 // from:
  SAY #292 /* ~Your folly exceeds my patience and your tedium my intellect. Farewell and good riddance, mice. I shall deliver the jewel myself.~ [HAERDA86] */
  IF ~~ THEN DO ~SetGlobal("HaerDalisGemQuest","GLOBAL",5)
TakePartyItem("MISC6X")
SetGlobal("HaerDalisMove","GLOBAL",1)
ChangeAIScript("",DEFAULT)
LeaveParty()
EscapeAreaMove("AR0510",1430,311,10)
~ EXIT
END

The second state shows him leaving, but I'm guessing the trigger for "HaerDalisGemQuest" should be 5 (and altered to 6), as per the change in the previous state.

Ideas?

imoenj.dlg has one false() state:

Quote
IF ~False()~ THEN BEGIN 60 // from:
  SAY #47215 /* ~Something strange up here. Be careful, this place has all manner of dangerous devices in it. I don't know what they do, but I know we would be safer if we shut them off.~ */
  IF ~~ THEN GOTO 61
END

IF ~~ THEN BEGIN 61 // from: 60.0
  SAY #47220 /* ~Do you smell that?  Smells like lightning, but indoors?  That can't be right.  I think I remember. Look to the right... the machine making the storm...~ */
  IF ~~ THEN EXIT
END

This could easily be restored by adding a SetGlobal to the script LIGHTPRX.bcs (the info trigger point for the lightning machine in the dungeon) and setting that Global as the trigger for this dialog state.

This was perhaps Jaheira's rejoining dialog if the romance was still active, which I don't see how it could be so.  Probably not something that can be restored, but interesting.  (JAHEIRH9 is a horribly voiced line, IMO).

Quote
IF WEIGHT #7 /* Triggers after states #: 66 72 73 even though they appear after this state */
~False()~ THEN BEGIN 17 // from:
  SAY #17715 /* ~I... I had hoped to see you again. I... that is, it is good to see you well. I have heard good things... for the most part at least. Shall we team once more? You and I both have much left to do.~ [JAHEIRH9] */
  IF ~~ THEN REPLY #17716 /* ~I am glad to see you, Jaheira. I was hoping that you would... would consider traveling with me again.~ */ GOTO 18
  IF ~~ THEN REPLY #17717 /* ~I have need of your skills again, Jaheira. Would you come back to my group?~ */ GOTO 19
  IF ~~ THEN REPLY #17718 /* ~It will have to wait, Jaheira, I don't need you in the group just yet.~ */ GOTO 20
END

IF ~~ THEN BEGIN 18 // from: 17.0
  SAY #17735 /* ~I will, but only as a comrade in arms.  Perhaps there was a chance for more, but no longer.  It is for the best; we have friends to avenge.~ */
  IF ~~ THEN EXIT
END

IF ~~ THEN BEGIN 19 // from: 17.1
  SAY #17737 /* ~For... yes, for the sake of the group. We have friends to avenge and should get too it. Other... other things will wait. Yes, I will come with you.~ */
  IF ~~ THEN EXIT
END

IF ~~ THEN BEGIN 20 // from: 17.2
  SAY #17739 /* ~Yes... yes it is best to move on.  I will be here or near here if you should change your mind, but I think we will always be separate in some measure now.~ */
  IF ~~ THEN EXIT
END

How would you suggest coding these?

Code: [Select]
COPY_EXISTING ~a.dlg~ ~override/a.dlg~
                        ~b.dlg~ ~override/b.dlg~
                        ~c.dlg~ ~override/c.dlg~

                        ~e.dlg~ ~override/e.dlg~
DECOMPILE_DLG_TO_D
REPLACE_TEXTUALL ~False()~ ~~
COMPILE_D_TO_DLG

... or something? :)

It depends on the situation.  Look at u!minor.d in the dialogs subfolder for the ones I've changed so far. 

You don't have to worry with them now if you don't want.  I'm just trying to go through the whole list, weeding out the bad ones, and then tackling the restorable ones individually.

Unless you're looking for something to do...  ;)

I've never played the Paladin stronghold, so I'm not sure what Sir Ryal Trawl (kayl2.dlg) originally referenced in this state.  Why would he send you to the Prelate instead of William?

Quote
IF ~False()~ THEN BEGIN 32 // from:
  SAY #36790 /* ~I heard of your service to the cause of goodness, but you will not be taking orders from me on this matter. Go to the Prelate, I will speak of other things later.~ */
  IF ~~ THEN EXIT
END

IF ~Global("PaladinOrder","GLOBAL",1)~ THEN BEGIN 33 // from:
  SAY #36791 /* ~Welcome to the ranks, <CHARNAME>. I am sure you will serve well. Speak with William Reirrac for your tasks and duties.~ */
  IF ~~ THEN EXIT
END

IF ~Global("PaladinOrder","GLOBAL",2)~ THEN BEGIN 34 // from:
  SAY #36792 /* ~That you would turn down such a great honor is baffling. Many work for years to be considered.~ */
  IF ~~ THEN EXIT
END

IF ~Global("PaladinOrder","GLOBAL",3)~ THEN BEGIN 35 // from:
  SAY #36793 /* ~I cannot imagine why you would throw away the honor and respect of your peers. You shall find no sanctuary here.~ */
  IF ~~ THEN EXIT
END

I'm not, either, to be honest.  I've not looked through the .wav files to see if the lines were voiced, but not referenced in the .dlg.  Otherwise, someone would have to be spot on in trying to mimic the original voice.

mage2.dlg is interesting, involving the quest given to you by Tolgerias.  There is no associated .cre file for the .dlg, but I'd say that it'd be easy to throw in an extra mage in the Government Building, not as a part of the Cowled Wizards.

mgketo01.dlg (Lord Ketlaar) contains some interesting dialogs, including a couple of NPC reactions.  He is normally spawned via script into the Crooked Crane as part of the Mage Stronghold quest.  He could be added sooner, to the second floor, and have the false() triggers replaced with some kind of random/NPC check triggers.  Should probably be thrown in as part of the Restored Crooked Crane component.

IF ~False()~ THEN BEGIN 2 // from:
  SAY #43660 /* ~My family is one of the wealthiest in Athkatla... we have interests in the gold mines up north and the shipwrights here in the city.  So I will thank you not to stand too close~ */
  IF ~~ THEN EXIT
END

IF ~False()~ THEN BEGIN 3 // from:
  SAY #43661 /* ~I don't suppose you're from one of the mercantile companies, are you?  No... I didn't think so.~ */
  IF ~~ THEN EXIT
END

IF ~False()~ THEN BEGIN 4 // from:
  SAY #43662 /* ~If you ever travel to Riatavin or Trademeet, my friend, beware of the Copriths.  That family will be the ruin of Amn, I swear by Helm's beard!~ */
  IF ~~ THEN EXIT
END

IF ~False()~ THEN BEGIN 5 // from:
  SAY #43663 /* ~I'm having a difficulty with the workers at one of our gold mines, and I'm not leaving until I speak to a Councillor about it.~ */
  IF ~~ THEN EXIT
END

IF ~False()~ THEN BEGIN 6 // from:
  SAY #43664 /* ~Begone, peasant!  I am the lord of one of Amn's great families and I'll not have your rude stench assaulting my nostrils!~ */
  IF ~~ THEN EXIT
END

IF ~False()~ THEN BEGIN 7 // from:
  SAY #43665 /* ~(sniff)  I didn't realize they let wilderness erudites in here without hosing them down, first.~ */
  IF ~~ THEN EXTERN ~CERNDJ~ 81
END

IF ~False()~ THEN BEGIN 8 // from:
  SAY #43667 /* ~Hmm... hmmn.  Yes, you'll do.  You... the pretty elf, there.  I need a new mistress, and I think you'll do nicely.~ */
  IF ~~ THEN EXTERN ~AERIEJ~ 34
END

re: the wizard in the Government building. Sounds like he's still a Cowled Wizards, but just disagrees with what Tolgerias is up to ;).

re: Ketlaar Argrim. Actually, he's already in the game before that quest. He's in the Government building, near the magistrate.

nalfal.dlg is another one that'd be simple to restore.  I'm guessing it was a character who was to be placed at the entrance to the Graveyard, from whom you could get directions to the funeral.

IF ~False()~ THEN BEGIN 0 // from:
  SAY #46252 /* ~Mourners in search of the Lord de'Arnise ceremony? If you are, please enter the door behind me.~ */
  IF ~~ THEN GOTO 1
END

IF ~~ THEN BEGIN 1 // from: 0.0
  SAY #46253 /* ~Lord de'Arnise was quite important, and his service is to be held on the upper partition of the tombs.~ */
  IF ~~ THEN EXIT
END

Ah, yes.  I should have searched the string references first.  Disregard my previous post on the matter.  :)

pala.dlg (Pala Fentan) has a few lines that could be restored by making a few edits to vara1.dlg and mazzyj.dlg (the SetGlobal would need to be removed, as it's set by an area script, too).  I tried to do a transitive output of mazzyj.dlg so that it'd be easier to read the full scene and how Pala's lines can be inserted, but doing so resulted in an infinite WeiDU loop.  :(

END

IF ~~ THEN BEGIN 1 // from:
  SAY #24475 /* ~What happened to me? The last thing I remember was seeing Danno and drinking something.~ */
  IF ~~ THEN EXTERN ~DANNO1~ 3
END

IF ~~ THEN BEGIN 2 // from:
  SAY #24483 /* ~Yes, I shall sleep.~ */

I, for one, would like to see some continuity between the two Ketlaar Argrims. For instance, they could both use the same avatar (instead of the Council of Six one being a Nobleman and the Crooked Crane one being a Male Human Fighter), and not have one of him still hanging around in the Government District even after you've whacked his other self. Of course, this can be remedied simply by changing the Council of Six Argrim's name.


re: the wizard in the Government building. Sounds like he's still a Cowled Wizards, but just disagrees with what Tolgerias is up to ;).
Not necessarily a Cowled Wizard, he might simply be a Mage who's paid the bribe.

That dialogue would work well on Argrim only if he had inside knowledge of the Cowls, which doesn't really make sense for a man spearheading the Anti-Cowled Wizards movement.

I've been working on theories that actually tie into this dialogue very closely, although my stuff is hardly UB:
1) Those lines, if spoken by a Mage, would support the idea that the Cowled Wizards are undergoing a schism in dogma (as I discussed in Virtue), with the Neutral Evil types seizing power from the Lawful Neutrals. This sounds very much like a disgruntled Neutral Cowl getting ticked at an Evil one.
2) The Wizard Slayers' Guild was originally founded by the Cowled Wizards, as a means to train Warrior backup to assist them in their trips to neutralize dangerous spellcasters. Now, however, the WSG has set up a secret base of their own, without the Cowls' knowledge, and from here they plot how to destroy the Cowled Wizards and thus make the city truly safe. Now, the anti-Tolgerias knowledge doesn't really have much to do with this idea, at least if it's supposed to be Argrim talking, but then the existence of a secret anti-government agency is hardly the sort of thing you want bandied about.

An interesting slayer-related transition in player1.dlg:

Quote
IF WEIGHT #8 ~Global("Slayer10","GLOBAL",1)~ THEN BEGIN 27 // from:
  SAY #55324 /* ~In the depths of your being stirs a familiar evil, reaching out of the darkness. It offers power... for a price. Do you accept and sacrifice part of yourself?~ */
  IF ~False()~ THEN REPLY #55325 /* ~I accept, despite the risks.~ */ DO ~IncrementGlobal("SlayerDeath","GLOBAL",1)
SetGlobal("Slayer10","GLOBAL",2)
SetGlobalTimer("TheSlayerTimer","GLOBAL",60)
ApplySpell(Player1,SLAYER_CHANGE_TWO)
ApplySpell(Player2,DRAIN_PARTY)
ApplySpell(Player3,DRAIN_PARTY)
ApplySpell(Player4,DRAIN_PARTY)
ApplySpell(Player5,DRAIN_PARTY)
ApplySpell(Player6,DRAIN_PARTY)
ForceSpell(Player1,SLAYER_FEAR)~ EXIT
  IF ~~ THEN REPLY #55326 /* ~No, it will not have me. I will not give in.~ */ DO ~SetGlobal("Slayer10","GLOBAL",0)~ EXIT
  IF ~True()~ THEN REPLY #61320 /* ~I choose to turn into the slayer.~ */ DO ~IncrementGlobal("SlayerDeath","GLOBAL",1)
SetGlobal("Slayer10","GLOBAL",2)
SetGlobalTimer("TheSlayerTimer","GLOBAL",60)
ReputationInc(-2)
ApplySpell(Player1,SLAYER_CHANGE_TWO)~ EXIT
END

Heh, perhaps this was removed to the chagrin of powergamers.  From ppdemon.dlg (demon to whom you must sacrifice an ability score to enter Spellhold):

Quote
IF ~~ THEN BEGIN 2 // from: 1.0
  SAY #44795 /* ~Choose what you will sacrifice to know yourself, to walk within. Give of your skill, your health, your mind, your wits, or your youth.~ */
  IF ~False()~ THEN REPLY #44796 /* ~I give of my skill, forgetting some of what I have learned.~ */ DO ~AddXPObject(Player1,-50000)~ GOTO 5
  IF ~~ THEN REPLY #44797 /* ~I give of my health, becoming less hardy.~ */ DO ~SetGlobal("Took","AR0028",1)~ GOTO 6
  IF ~~ THEN REPLY #44798 /* ~I give of my mind and my capacity to learn.~ */ DO ~SetGlobal("Took","AR0028",2)~ GOTO 7
  IF ~~ THEN REPLY #44799 /* ~I give of my wits and the wisdom I have learned.~ */ DO ~SetGlobal("Took","AR0028",3)~ GOTO 8
  IF ~~ THEN REPLY #44800 /* ~I give of my youth, sacrificing my agility of movement.~ */ DO ~SetGlobal("Took","AR0028",4)~ GOTO 9
  IF ~~ THEN REPLY #44827 /* ~I give nothing!  You ask too much of me!~ */ GOTO 4
  IF ~~ THEN REPLY #44828 /* ~I will fight you! Stand aside!~ */ GOTO 3
END

The devs must have figured out that it's much easier to regain experience than it is to regain an ability score.  :)
