Tiax v4 released!
« on: January 28, 2007, 11:53:07 AM »
Now Tiax rules at PPG, too!

- a banter with every NPC in SoA, twice with some!
- a banter with every NPC in ToB!
- the shortest ever "friendship", or, rather "bow-to-Cyric! Bow!" path with the PC,
- some interjections where they should be, and where they shouldn't,
- five banters from Badgert ( http://forums.aerie.ru )
- and of course, The Russian Translation.
- version 3 includes crossmod with BG2EE characters!
- version 4 includes multilanguage support for BG2EE!

Enjoy, but soon Tiax rules!

This is actually... quite cool. I loved Tiax in BG1. Good work.

Uses his BG1 soundset, right?

At last, the final puzzle piece of my plan for world domination has fallen into place! :D Ahem. Seriously, this is very very cool indeed. Good ol' Tiax was possibly my favourite BG1 NPC.

This is very cool, indeed! However, I'm unfamiliar with Badgert. What did you mean by "five banters from Badgert"?

Does he have more ToB content aside from the banters? Interjections and epilogues and such?

Badgert is a guy who'd translated at least half of the existing mods into Russian, and now is translating NEJ(do not ask). I've caught him developing Tiax at Aerie's, and he offered to add his banters to this little thing. Thus, Jan, Cernd, Imoen and Korgan have two banters in SoA, not one.

Interjections, an epilogue, a holy symbol of Cyric and a... reaction to Cyric's challenge - click on him afterwards to find out. Some player-initiated stuff for SoA and ToB, too.

No quests, though - Tiax has to rule all, he cannot be distracted by some petty annoyances!

I've put together a Mac version of Tiax v1 in case anyone's interested. :)

Thank you! Tiax will be the first ever Bilingual One-Day NPC mod with a Mac version, he will. :) I'll see if I can upload it when I get back from work.

By the way, do any of you Tiax players have anything to say? Not that I insist as of yet, but I am understandably curious.

Kulyok, please, create a full version of Tiax. I love this NPC. Now I playing with Tiax and this mod is great. Creating a full version would be a great thing! Trust me! Everyone would love it ;) What do you think?

Heya, welcome to PPG,

I think Tiax is a full NPC mod - he's got banters for SoA and ToB, more than a few interjections, player-initiated dialogue, crossmod content, and so on. It's just I wrote him rather fast.

But if there's something in particular you'd like added, please, go ahead and tell me - by the way, I'll be happy to incorporate any and all funny banters for Tiax with proper credits for the authors, too.

I am going to underdark so I do not know what will he do/speak later. If I were the writer, I would add a conflict with Quayle - he hates him (there was conflict with him in BG1). I would also put a quest for him... something about... do not know... evil plan of world domination by building for example deadly golem which would broke down of course ;) Maybe a special item for him to find? Mace of Cyric. And maybe another quest in ToB... maybe something in Bhaals Temple. Maybe creating minion of undead... which would attack him in the end :P What do you think?
Anyway, thank you for adding Tiax into BG2! My two favorites from BG1 in BG2 - Tiax and Xan ;)

I'm sure it's been asked, and probably by me: is Tiax compat with BG1NPC and/or BGT?

Yes and yes: just like Xan, Tiax uses my prefix, so technically, treat him just like a regular custom BG2 NPC in this instance.

I've been thinking more about my question, and I realize I'm not asking it right. Here goes (and this applies to Xan too):

{I think this was discussed before in a SHS thread. Link me, in any case, if there is an existing one}

BGT allows us to play with BG1 NPCs. BG1NPCs appends (and re-adjusts) dialogue to the original dialogue of BG1 NPCs. So does Tiax/Xan mods append to existing NPC's dialogue? That's what I mean in terms of compatibility.

If yes, YaY! If no, how diff to make it so?

I think I explained before in Xan forum: both Xan and Tiax use their own dialogue files. Try searching there This is done to ensure compatibility with other mods - and, of course, so that no other mod breaks mine.

I finally finished a TOB game with Tiax and I really liked his epilogue.  It was fitting for one of my fave BG1 characters.  And he has so much content both in SOA and TOB that it is hard for me to believe that he is a "one day" NPC. 

Kulyok you are friggin' amazing!  Thanks!

Got a feature request. What about adding a personal quest to both SoA and ToB for Tiax? :)
Including some great custom items? :P

By the way

[spoiler] I've talked with him after Cyric's challenge. Am I wrong telling that you can't make him realize that he is a useless pawn, to the point that Cyric don't even know of his existence (probably?). Also I don't think he would stay silent (you used the three dots) when you meet Cyric, but that's preference, really. :P[/spoiler]

I would think he'd be too busy pissing his pants. LIVE CYRIC! Man, that's pure scary and awesome all in one.

I'm not sure enough people play Tiax to justify his expansion, to be honest. But I'll think about it. Something crazy, maybe? :)
