Please have a look: http://www.whiteagnus.de/screenshots/LHAR.gif :)
Erhm, looks alright... but the shadow on the tower and a little bit of shadow under the roof are odd to say the least in the night images. :P Now take that from non artist, but also is a critic who doesn't have a creative bone in the body.

I actually don't understand what you mean  :D Can you elaborate? :) if the problem is with light map then it is a different story. The door sadly can't change the light map when opened (at least that I know of), but logically the door still needs to cast a shadow :) The only things changed here were the doors. If there are shadow problems with the roof for example then it has been there from the beginning :)

This wall during day and night, has the very same shadow that is created there by the sun, from the building in front. And during the night, the sun shouldn't "cast" it, as it's not there... :P Like said, it's not a great concern.

Aaa you are correct :) but that is a problem with every single original map in the game. I guess they just converted all the night maps straight from day maps. But you can always imagine that there is a very bright moon in the sky ;)

The moon should give enough light for a shadow.

The Extended Lighthouse Area component's changes to the WED file for AR3600 seems to cause a crash to desktop, at least for EE (haven't tested on classic).  I'm also not able to view the area using Near Infinity when this WED file is present - reverting the WED file resolves the crashes and makes it possible for Near Infinity to view the area.

The cre "J#Bren.CRE" has invalid dialogue strings attached (#2147483647). This was no problem in the classic games, I guess, but with BG:EE this gives "Invalid:xxxxx" notes in the dialogue box e.g. if Bren is talked to while he is walking to his mum.

Regarding an OSX Version:

v14 can be installed on OSX with one small adjustment: Change the folder name

SirinesCall/tools/tileconv/macosx

to

SirinesCall/tools/tileconv/osx

It's a real pity, but I have no idea what is causing the crashes of the new tis component, nor how it can be fixed.

If anyone more adept with area making can give me the solution, I'd be very grateful.

Apart from that, I have a new version ready that fixes some small things, e.g. the OSX install fix. As for the crashing tis - all I could offer is disabling the optional component until someone provides a fix.

Mod needs one adjustment on Linux, the directory "SirinesCall\tools\tileconv\linux" should be named "SirinesCall\tools\tileconv\unix".  Without that, installing gives this error:

ERROR: Failure("ERROR: \"tileconv\" does not exist at \"sirinescall/tools/tileconv/unix/x86_64/tileconv\"")

Thank you! Fixed locally.

Only thing left is the crashing area...

The Extended Lighthouse component seems to now / still (?) crash for BGT. Please let me know about your experience and bugreports.
Also, if anyone knows a fix please let me know.

I have confirmed bug report that the Extended Lighthouse Area component crashes on BGT (and probably on Tutu). Do not install this component on BGT(Tutu) until this is fixed.

In case someone wants to provide fixes, I'd appreciate it.

What's the issue? Something related to area files?

I don't know (yet)... It could be anything related to the night area: maybe it's the graphics, maybe it's one missing ambient, maybe it's the spawning of night creatures etc.

Poking around a bit at this, I see that in BGT the night .wed file ar9500n.wed is missing.  In EE, the corresponding file ar3600n.wed is there.

Oh. That would be a rather easy explanation. Thank you!

In case anyone wants to provide the night wed for BGT, that would be great.

That's odd. Sirine's Call correctly installs this file on my BGT and the area works fine.

OK now it gets complicated! :D
Looking at the mod package now I think the night area wed is provided. I have a definite report of a crashing night area on BGT, though.

One problem with the v15 package is that I don't really understand the tp2, and also what the .tbc files are for, etc..

Sorry for the arbitary and random post... but: Let it be known that at least the v15 contains this:
   OUTER_SPRINT "Lighthouse_BlackAlaricsCave" "BG3601"
in, \SirinesCall\lib/eet_cpmvars.tpa

... but I really needed this.

Never mind... the mod that was actually responsible is the "Calling" mod. Sorry for the misidentification. Yours just re... minded me of last time we ran into this and I failed to remember the exact facts.
