I think I'll be reinstalling Baldur's Gate now. All the people who made this mod happen, you rock.

This will probably sound really lame.. but one of the things which made the de'Arnise Romance such a good experience for me
is the romance music theme. It provides so much more ambiance and greatly helps me experience a emotional commitment.

Yay! That makes one fan in almost six years of my romance theme selections!

We have just released Version 2. Most importantly it corrects a bug with the Nalia vampire sequence. Other minor changes are in as well. You can safely install it in the middle of your game.

Right on top of the previous version without uninstalling it?

Yes, just extract it and select the Reinstall option. You can do that with most mods, actually.

Figures an old mod would lure in an old modder. :)

Any compatability issues with the Nalia mod that reverses her classes? (mage-->thief)

Did anyone else have any trouble with the flirts not working?

I played through a ways past the sixth lovetalk (then the readme says the flirts should begin). According to the dialougues it seems the relationship is going fine, but when I click to talk to her nothing happens.

Do the flirts work in TOB?  ...that would be at least something.

Maybe an epilogue too...  ;)

In ToB, Nalia has different dialogue files, so that would be no.

No new epilogue for having played the romance in SoA?

But some SoA mods like Beyond the Law have them. I got overenthusiastic I guess.

Bummer.

JC, you have just inspired me to reinstall SOA for the first time in over five years. I am planning to finally try out the gameplay tweeks from PPG and naturally I need this romance.  Um...

Um...I can't stand playing as a male anymore in any third person games, I so much prefer looking at a female avatar..how do I  override the gender checks using shadowkeeper to activate the romance? And I know some mods in the past, IIRC have multiple romance checks at various points in the game...

Please help.

:)

Jansens aren't as harmless like everybody supposes!
They got them stumpy legs and puffy potato noses!
And what's with all the turnips?
Why do they eat so much root vegetables, anyway?
Jansens, Jansens,
It must be Jansens!!!
(or it could be griffins)

I'm pretty sure it would be far simpler to just change the avatar in Shadowkeeper.

Oh, got it.  So there are multiple checks...didn't Kelsey have multiple romance condition checks?  Well, it would be the easiest..but hey, I'm not a super fan of picking the easy way...

 :P

But I guess you're right... Thanks, JC.

Btw...I noticed in the screenshots that there is rivalry between Nalia and Jaheira, is there one with Aerie as well?

 ;)

I don't remember and I don't want to hunt for it. Do you? Just change the avatar. Simplest way to the finish line.

Of course.

Does it get catty with...viccy?  I mean I can just imagine her dialog...might be worth it just to take viccy along...you really should add teasers to the readme...which conflict with who is...the juciest...

I have long maintained that romance conflicts at their best show the characters at their worst. I think the player (and PC) should be a little dismayed by the bad behavior.

So although there are quality bits in both the Jaheira and Viconia conflicts, the Aerie/Nalia conflict is the most effective from that standpoint, in my opinion.

I've decided to field a male sorc...too annoying to do otherwise, and I am going to enjoy this romance the way it was intended to...though now I have to find a good avatar picture...sigh...

But this is good news...I was planning to field my favorite team of nalia, aerie, jaheira, imoen and jan. (I can always look up the viccy dialog...or just take her until Brynlaw...)

Please tell me there's hair pulling...  8)

I would have thought that the most...violent conflict would be nalia/viccy...viccy is certainly capable of poisoning nalia...  :o or attacking her...aerie would be more...lady like?

Oh, does any of the girls leave if you choose the wrong options?  And please tell me that Imoen has comments about her brother's love life...
