problem completing Shadow Thieves
« on: August 16, 2004, 01:04:56 PM »
Loaded V1 & betrayed Renal.  Then CLUA'd to Chapter 6 to complete this mod.  I talked to MaeVar and then Larell, who told me to go kill Aran.  I agreed.  None of the ST's were hostile on the two levels below except for the new placements by the mod.  When I reached Aran, I killed the one hostile mage and got Aran's first line "Come for me, have you...etc" which is what I should have gotten with DOMaevar set to 10.  However, Aran and his cronies stayed blue.  If I talked to him again, I got the "give me help with Bodhi" dialogue.  If I force attack and kill him, everyone goes hostile - including Larell and his men!  If I kill all of them and return to MaeVar, he has nothing to say to me.

Is there a way out of this impasse?

Hmmm.  Was my previous post unclear?  About having a problem with the Shadow Thieves that I would like to resolve but can't?

Or is "No Answer" just the answer here?

Oops, sorry! I'm looking into this at the moment, but I think I must've been drunk or high or something when I coded this, because it's just a complete disaster. If you need an immediate solution, I imagine I can provide you with some variables to set to make things work vaguely sensibly; if the worst comes to the worst, however, I might need a savegame to fix up. It'll definintely be fixed in the next release if time isn't an issue, however.

Well, as I tried to explain, the variable when I arrived at Aran's office was correct and I did get his first line of mod dialogue.    Then the game seemed to ignore the mod entirely.

An immediate fix is unnecessary because my save game is still in chapter 2, just before I changed the chapter to get the first messenger to appear.  So if you'd like a guinea pig for the fix, I'm ready to go on that.

Right, I'll send a beta of QP2 your way when it's ready, if that's okay.
