I humbly request your assistance. (Minsc-related bug)
« on: January 23, 2005, 07:32:57 PM »
Hello and good day, I'm having a bit of trouble in BG2, now, my problem is that after a certain time, either when my virtue rises or when a set number of days pass, Minsc goes through some strange issue where he is constantly trying to speak to my main character, the problem is that the dialogue never initiates and Minsc is left ATTEMPTING to speak to me every 5 or so seconds, this is a real annoyance and makes Minsc damn-near unusable, this is the second time this has happend to me, the first time I thought it was a major bug and went the route of reinstalling and restarting, damn shame, my precious level 20 monk was lost...

Some background info;

I have the Unfinished Business and Ashes of Embers mods installed, as well as the Dungeon-Be-Gone mod, all of which are very fine additions, and thank you to all of the modders for creating them.

I'm assuming there's some kind of code to force Minsc's speech with me, any help at all would be much appliged.

Also, I apologize if this is in the wrong section of the forum, this seemed to be the best place to begin.

Thank you in, advance.

Thank you for the move, Icelus.

I had a feeling I would have put it in the wrong place... just wasn't sure what was causing the problem so I figured a general section would be better than the wrong specific area.

Regardless, thanks.

Apparently the new V17 fixes that, problem is, that it no longer does me any good, I tried installing v17 but it was too late as Minsc was already trying to initiate dialogue with me, my save is literally seconds after my Virtue bonus, so a few questions which I think the answers to may solve my problem.

Can I roll back virtue?
Can I force Minsc to talk to me?

It really should fix things for you, since Minsc's script will have changed, even in the saved game.  Are you sure he's still stuttering?  Maybe try ctrl+y and then ctrl+r on him?

Hmm, I'll give it a swing.

EDIT: Nay, same issue, upgraded to v17, got Minsc to rejoin at the Coronet, and still stuttering, I killed/ressurected him like you suggested, same problem.

It's okay now though, I replaced him with Haer'Dalis and he's almost as good as Minsc... well, in ways, he's better.

It'd be interesting to see if the bug would re-occur in a new game, too.  Try accepting Minsc into your party and then killing Jaheira and Imoen, to see if he starts stuttering again.

Willl try now...

Okay, restarted the game, killed Imoen (she ran off with the belt), killed Jaheira... three times (she died permanently), lost about 6 Virtue and Minsc only said that we should "strive to be just" and that he would not tolerate "this".

So... guess the stutter bug is cleansed out, and it's just in the save game...

It doesn't bother me much now, as I got Keldorn to beef up the front, and Haer Dalis for some support, and the bug seems to be only in my current game.

I'm sorry the fix didn't seem to work for the savegame. I'm slightly unsure as to why that would be. However, it's good to know that it's at least resolved for future games.

Aye, the problems nothing major, reading through a few Virtue threads here has inspired me to begin a new quest, with more 'roleplaying' in mind than earning best benefits.

Regardless, very nice mod.
