Well, necroing a bit to update on what this quest looks like as of v19:

Pet monger still says "Oops wrong spell" but you're correctly teleported to the government district.
Gems have been removed as rewards, and therefore the third question doesn't matter.
Getting one question wrong gets you the jade hound figurine, which is way more powerful than the reward for getting no questions wrong (the summon boolet ability--which appears to have been nerfed to a novelty ability in recent versions).
Minsc still gets 19 STR as a reward, but the THAC0 bug is gone.
Boo's Scraps are undroppable and remain in Minsc's inventory after quest completion, need to be SK'd out (did they ever serve a purpose?)
If you have already purchased a license, the Cowled Wizards decide to reimburse you 1,000 gold (impressively you can tell them you paid 10k if you installed the SCS component to increase the license cost, I see DavidW did some work here), but you only get 100.
If you happened to mess with the guys in the Sea's Bounty before the quest started you have probably ruined the quest for yourself. They should only spawn when you follow Billy into the inn.

All in all, the fact that this mod was abandoned by cliffette 7 years ago clearly shows.

Hello! Thank you for your report!

I am going to tell you that v20 is ready and just needs jcompton's approval and:
- Ooops wrong spell has been corrected;
- 100/1000 gold issue has been corrected(no relation to SCS, when you say 10000, it just means you're lying);
- The issue with the guys from the Sea's Bounty has been corrected.

- The question about stones will probably not be changed. I've played this quest for the first time three weeks ago, and that question didn't seem like an issue or a glaring bug to me. Just a question out of the blue, but they're all out of the blue, a little.


Thank you, I will look into fixing Boo's Scraps. As for Jade's figurine and summon boolet ability, I am not sure I can judge(since I'm just a maintainer who fixes bugs), but I will take a look.

I don't quite understand what needs fixing here, exactly, so I might need an explanation. Minsc has a THAC0 bug, and you *don't* want it to be fixed? You want Minsc both to have 19 str and a THAC0 bug post-quest? RELATED: If Minsc has a THAC0 bug, doesn't BG2 Fixpack fix that already?


Also, this is to everyone: PLEASE REPORT YOUR ISSUES IN THE PINNED V19(later v20, or v21, or v29) BUG THREAD! Otherwise they will be lost, buried in old threads and no one will ever correct them.

It's not a bug, I'm just providing a report on my experiences with v19 to people who might be reading this thread.

Boolet is just a novelty ability, right? There's basically no actual use for it, whereas the figurine is actually legitimately powerful, since it drains levels on hit or something, IIRC.

Like I said, I'm not listing bugs, just reports of what's been fixed and what's still problematic. Basically I was reporting that the THAC0 bug mentioned multiple times in this thread has been fixed.

Yeah, this is one of two components in UB that I regularly skip due to a combination of bugginess and poor implementation of various elements/writing (the other being suna seni).

the Jade Hound vs Boolets thing is silly; I'd imagine most players that know about this would be tempted to intentionally get a riddle wrong for the clearly better reward

boo scraps remaining is clearly an annoying bug, and can cause you to lose items if you have SCS' 'move boo out of quickslot' component installed

minsc's voiceset when it gets restored has the wrong string/sound file for when he gets fatigued.


more subjective, but I think the writing and characterization throughout this mod is rather sub par; I winced a few times at some of the lines the first couple of times I saw them.

If there're any outstanding bugs with Suna Seni, please, report them now in the bug thread, before v20 is released. I will look into Minsc's voiceset in the meantime.

Please, report all issues in the pinned bug thread.

After having finished the Boo quest, Minsc's rejoin dialogue is messed up. He won't force talk the PC on being kicked out, and subsequently can't rejoin ('Minsc has nothing to say').

Update, for anyone similarly stuck: 'Boo's Scraps' is the culprit, didn't get removed properly at the end of the quest. Needs to be edited out. Kudos for the hilarious mod, though! Best laugh of BG2. :)
