Since your clearing up some quests and correcting name errors and such, could it be possible if you could check out this quest of Gorf and Mazzy, and see if there's any problems with its scripts.

Every time i play BG and i get this quest either i get some spawn errors when Gorf shows up outside the copper coronet, where 4 or more "Bystander" spawn, until finally he gets to kill one and says his line in which i have to go inside and challenge him to the duel. But then inside, the quest always seems to break up in between talking with Bunkin or Festule ...

I've done in all my games perhaps 1 time all the way this quest, the other times i always get the quest broken, where maybe i give the potion to Bunkin but Gorf doesn't show up, or i directly talk to her and Gorf doesn't still show up and she keeps on repeating her "Your so gonna get it" type answer ...

Perhaps there IS actually something wrong with the scripts for that quest, or not all situations are taken into consideration ... if you got the time could you check it out ...

Thanks,
-Gandalf-

I've got this problem too, and while it's not a major inconvenience, it is a little annoying :(

Yeah i ran into it yesterday again, and i got it messed up again, EVEN after reloading at least 5 times and trying different approaches already inside the copper with the quest accepted.

It is much of a deal, but it's one of those annoying things which doesn't leave your journal all nice and wraped up  ;D

"It isn't much of a deal"

sorry about that, no edit option for me  :-X

If you find it send it to my mail if you can please, or better yet, if you can attach it here and perhaps it can be merged onto UB

Isn't it fixed by Baldurdash? Or was it planned for the next version?

Gorf the Squisher fix was planned for the next version of Baldurdash, along with the Glacius charm fix (guard captain in D'Arnise Keep)

I think I got it. Try http://www.fortunecity.com/boozers/winelodge/79/

I think this is the sight I went to find a gorf patch about a year ago  :o

The hostile.zip one might be useful for the Glaicus character...

Bodhi & Squires. Possible UB component
« Reply #11 on: April 19, 2004, 10:15:31 PM »
I wasn't sure where to post this, but UB seemed like the best place.

Issue:  Squire Cathras (the Prelate of the Order of the Radiant Heart's squire) has a line from before Bodhi has been killed, but after the PC has requested aid from the order.

"So we're going to help you destroy..."

The problem is, even after the PC has killed Bodhi, and the other members of the Radiant Heart have thanked you, Squire Cathras does not change his line. 


A minor inconsistency, but it might fit under the heading of small fixes.

It checks for the wrong death variable. The final fight uses "c6bodhi".

Here are the last four states of his dialog file (C6SQUIRE.dlg):

Quote
IF ~Global("OrderFightBodhi","GLOBAL",1)
!Dead("Bodhi")~ THEN BEGIN 15 // from:
  SAY #52997 /* ~So we're going to help you destroy a... a powerful vampire?  Merciful Tyr, what a battle that will be!  I will go and relay the message immediately to Sir Reirrac!~ */
  IF ~~ THEN DO ~MoveToPointNoInterrupt([612.589])
EscapeArea()~ EXIT
END

IF ~Global("OrderFightBodhi","GLOBAL",2)
!Dead("Bodhi")~ THEN BEGIN 16 // from:
  SAY #52998 /* ~I see that the Prelate refused you.  Perhaps... perhaps there is still some way to appease him.  The Order *does* exist to fight the greater evil... maybe if you could convince him of *that*...~ */
  IF ~~ THEN EXIT
END

IF ~Dead("Bodhi")
ReputationGT(LastTalkedToBy,14)~ THEN BEGIN 17 // from:
  SAY #53000 /* ~Greetings, <GABBER>.  The tales of your deeds precede you... we hear of your great feats even here in the Order.  The city was fortunate to have you arrive here, I think.~ */
  IF ~~ THEN DO ~EscapeArea()~ EXIT
END

IF ~Dead("Bodhi")
ReputationLT(LastTalkedToBy,15)~ THEN BEGIN 18 // from:
  SAY #53001 /* ~Greetings, <GABBER>.  Please excuse me... while I would love to ask you of your journeys, the Order does keep us Squires quite busy.~ */
  IF ~~ THEN EXIT
END

OK, I'll fix this for the next release.

Urk! Can you please change that to something I can understand? I don't quite get what you are asking.

Let me try and see if I'm right.

A little Question. Can you guys fix the Bug with Gorf?

The fact is that I have played BG2 for a very long time. So many times that I don't know how many times I've killed Irenicus and the wrong freid Amalisan.

But in my runs, the Gorf Quest started only one time and after that it stopped. I dont know why, but should that happen?

I still can't understand the 'freid Amalisan'

Edit: Forgot to mention that I wasn't making fun of you, I was just trying to make sense of what you had written.  ;)

Yoshimo's beta portrait

As Yoshimo looked in beta.

Located on http://www.sorcerers.net/Games/BG2/index_editors5.htm

Amusing, at least. Worth restoring, I would say.

Well, I can add it as an optional component if there's enough demand.  Personally, I prefer his newer portrait, but I'm always open to new suggestions.

Yes, this is a very common Gorf the Squisher quest bug.  It would be nice if it were fixed one day.  I know this was on the list of things to do at Baldurdash, but it'll probably be a long time before it is ever done there.

Since UB restores broken dialogues, I think it could be argued that a Gorf The Squisher quest fix belongs in the UB package.

I've just emailed Gebhard today about the possibility of adding his fix to the next UB release.  Who knows when the next Baldurdash will be released.  If Kevin Dorner truly is back, I'm betting he's swamped.

At first I didn't think much of this portrait but after seeing it a couple of times I now like it.
