Bugs and typos for v19
« on: August 08, 2013, 05:10:42 AM »
This mod does not have a permanent maintainer. From time to time, one modder or another comes here and fixes a list of hot(and cold) issues.

We'd like your help in making it easier for everyone. If you have a bug report for v19, please, post it here. If you post your bug reports elsewhere, chances are they will be forgotten or overlooked(which is really the same thing). And by chances, I mean 90% or higher.

All reports are very welcome.

EDIT: V20 is released, so I'm closing this topic. There will be a new "REPORT HERE IN CAPITAL LETTERS" topic for that.



Okay, let's fix stuff.

The last major update was 31 January, 2009.

Action required:

[DONE] Look into Big World Fixpack and steal whatever they got, because they have good stuff.

[DONE] Use Miloch's crefixer(AR0326/etc):
http://forums.pocketplane.net/index.php/topic,27359.0.html

[DONE] We've got hook71's typos:
http://forums.pocketplane.net/index.php/topic,28063.0.html

[DONE]We've got Boo's crash possibly fixed by using crefixer and changing the area script variable:

http://forums.pocketplane.net/index.php/topic,28255.0.html

[DONE] Curly Apostrophes:

[DONE] Miloch's warning about removing randtre/offset:
http://forums.pocketplane.net/index.php/topic,27943.0.html

[DONE] Jafir's script. And check the boy/girl with the lamp for spawning, maybe the vanilla game var doesn't set:

[DONE] Bodhi's logic problem(force-exit her instead? I'll look into this):
http://forums.pocketplane.net/index.php/topic,27939.0.html

[DONE] RepTrap:
http://forums.pocketplane.net/index.php/topic,27326.0.html

[DONE] Figure out what ... is with Nilthiri component:
http://forums.pocketplane.net/index.php/topic,25285.0.html

[DONE] Figure out if there's an incompatiblity with Restored Minor Dialogs
http://forums.pocketplane.net/index.php/topic,26931.0.html

[DONE] Script warnings, since we don't need these:
http://forums.pocketplane.net/index.php/topic,27193.0.html

[DONE] Check Gorje's diary entries: done, moved them before EscapeArea command
http://forums.pocketplane.net/index.php/topic,26397.0.html

[DONE] Check Suna Seni, because two users reported problems:

http://forums.pocketplane.net/index.php/topic,25215.msg319869.html#msg319869

[DONE] Not a bug, but Fixpack does subjective fixes. Or a bug. Anyway, Yoshimo's heart extensive dialogue is only available in the slums, because Fixpack overwrites slilmat in Promenade with wilmat and then adds its own dialogue to wilmat. I really don't want to mess with that. Though maybe I'll have to, in the end.
http://forums.pocketplane.net/index.php/topic,27435.0.html

[DONE] Oh, look, berelinde's post about duplicating bags:
http://forums.gibberlings3.net/index.php?showtopic=16380&view=findpost&p=149117

[DONE] Russian and Polish installations/check that they install:
http://forums.pocketplane.net/index.php/topic,26239.50.html

[DONE] Corrected character names may not be working correctly. I have my doubts, since lines seem to check out(=and tweaking it via adding lines to .tp2 adds more work for the translators). But! I'll check if correct .cre files actually _spawn_.
http://forums.pocketplane.net/index.php/topic,26635.0.html - was shop03 instead of shop3. Other filenames seem okay, but reports are welcome.

Probably no action:

Are we in trouble because UB uses EXTEND_TOP to AR0809 without Continue()'s and kill an OnCreation or something? No, UB doesn't seem to be changing this, and it's AR0808, anyway.
http://forums.pocketplane.net/index.php/topic,26783.0.html

Spellhold head/open door with Dace's hand and a crystal: UB doesn't seem to change any of these. If I'm wrong, please post relevant code.
http://forums.pocketplane.net/index.php/topic,28036.0.html

Check Arbane's sword description: done, UB doesn't modify it, description of the +3 version was removed from v13
http://forums.pocketplane.net/index.php/topic,26397.0.html

Check Bodhi's hunt for Bodhi-not-appearing(check scripts for consistency). Checked, seemed consistent. Seriously, there's not a single DestroySelf or EscapeArea that's not inside dialogue, so it shouldn't be UB... right?
http://forums.pocketplane.net/index.php/topic,28398.0.html

EDIT: Done all this and much more, the complete list of changes is in v20's readme.

EDIT: Changed the name of this thread to, ahem, encourage people post their reports here and only here.

I'm on vacation for the next week, so I'm not sure if I'll be able to do anything for UB during that time - we'll see. But I'll be back, and in the meantime, all reports and links to them, old and new, are appreciated in this thread.

Let's make UB work.

Slowly but surely. :) Will you have some time to test the end version, by the way? I'm not a regular UB player, so I might miss something.

The current list of changes to the existing components is

 * Installed the fixes from the Big World Fixpack, including the script installation warnings.
 * Fixed the .cre files with Miloch's crefixer(no area crashes).
 * Corrected a number of typos.
 * Fixed a number of issues with Boo's quest, including the thugs in Sea's Bounty, duplicating bags and Minsc's leaving dialogue.
 * Ensured that Kalah's quest starts correctly, Aerie's interjections work well and Jafir always talks at low health.
 * Bodhi leaves her encounter in Athkatla correctly if attacked.
 * Bodhi actually attacks during the first "Cat and Mouse" attack in Spellhold.
 * The reputation encounter with the thieves is restricted to the Docks district and does not interfere with the paladins of the Radiant Heart.
 * Nilthiri should die correctly when brought to low health.
 * Used Avenger's code for RR and Fixpack compatibility.
 * Gorje's diary entries are deleted correctly.
 * Suna Seni should not be hostile at the Docks encounter or be present at the first random encounter.
 * Added UB's Yoshimo's Heart dialogue for the Fixpack's Ilmater priest in the Promenade.
 * Changed the names of the components into English in Russian translation because of MS-DOS/Win 7 encoding issues.
 * Added the cold mistress' encounter to .tra file for translation.
 * Corrected Maheer's name.
 * Added CamDawg's CD_STATE_NOTVALID whenever possible.
 * Minor changes, including InMyArea() for Suna Seni's Valygar check.
 * Updated WeiDU to 231.

It's possible that some of these components haven't been fixed at all, of course. Hint, hint - playtest it now and find out!

Kulyok have You received all Polish strings translated? If yes do You intend to include full Polish translation in v20? I'm asking cause I don't see any hint about translations in your list.

Ah, yes, that. Currently I have this line in the readme:

* Fixed the installation for the Polish users and updated the Polish translation.

and I have the updated Polish translation, too, naturally, since I've picked it up from that unofficial UB mirror. But nobody sent me anything, and to tell you the truth, I feel more than a trifle uncomfortable about it, since it's like I'm stealing someone's translation, without even mentioning the author - I've no idea who translated Sarevok's encounter, for example. I'll be happy to get any info.

Kulyok according to http://baldur.cob-bg.pl/node/878 there were two translators of BG2 Unfinished Business to Polish - Riklaunim & Yarpen. But don't know them unfortunately and don't have any contact with them. Also I don't have a clue who translated Sarevok's encounter...If you feel uncomfortable of using their translation (BTW I can't imagine if someone could feel uncomfortable of using their work in OFFICIAL release, but maybe it's just me) maybe try to send a post on their forums http://athkatla.cob-bg.pl/index.php. Don't worry You may freely write in English, there are lot of guys and gals who can respond :)

BTW there is an indication on the download site that this is full version of translation that is not included in PPG version...weird.

I think the version is pretty much complete.

Over these three weeks, I've coded a few other things, the whole list's in the readme(the one you can see if you ask me for the link - or, if you have the link, just redownload, though there's nothing really new since ~25th).
I think it's pretty much it, the last fixed issue was here: http://forums.pocketplane.net/index.php/topic,28590.0.html

Last call for bugs, or we're flying away to unicorns and rainbows without you!

To look up:

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?)

Removed Boo's Scraps, probably no action on the rest. Need to test it this evening.

German translation updated. Huge thanks to the translators and to Leonardo, who sent me the files.

Another bug regarding quest log entries not deleting themselves: In the extended illithium quest, the Gorje Underdark entry doesn't go away even after I've talked to him and his brother in the Copper Coronet, and then subsequently finished the whole quest. It's the entry that starts with "I have found Unger's lost brother Gorje..."

Did you see my reply in the Minsc thread? I figured I'd just finish the conversation there instead of posting it here, but I'll post anything in the future here.

Yep, I'm reading all of it. :) It's just we're going to release the new version of UB, and *then* I won't be so active on this forum, so I'm trying to get things organized and easy for the next maintainer(or for me, if there will be new issues soon).

One last change(I hope, I hope, please, let it be the last change and let's release v20 at last): Minsc's 'tired' line in the restored soundset is now the correct one. Yay.

Again, huge thanks to everyone who sent their reports in. Would've been impossible to fix these things without you.

Well Suna Seni just sits in the Copper Coronet. She doesn't lead me to Valygar or anything; I had to pay the tax guy at the Cowled Wizards to tell me to go to the Umar Hills. Maybe it's because I talked to her before getting the Valygar quest, but she basically just tells me she's waiting for her employer and that's it.

Also, the tax document you get from Valygar's residence in Athkatla doesn't mention Llarsh by name, so it's pretty hard to know whom to talk to at that stage. And is there even a clue to talk to Suna Seni? I only knew about it because I went to the Umar Hills (which there is plenty of clues for), the cabin was empty, and then I went to the UB readme.

Ah, yeah, I fully agree it should be clearer(I don't install this component, myself, but only because I think Valygar belongs to my PC and any woman who tries to claim him should not be installed). Not sure if these are bugs, though - more like not-exactly-100%-clear-and-easy-defined-quest-sequence.

Not sure if this is already fixed or what, but theres a bug with the restored Bodhi-massacres-Shadow-Thieves cutscene. It happened right after I paid Gaelen Bayle (not sure if that's the right timing, just mentioning), but then during the encounter she doesn't do anything, just stands there and gets hit by the thieves. I had to Ctrl-Y them all and that triggers her dialogue and departure.

Thank you for reporting! One of the instances - the instance when you attack Bodhi - has been fixed, yes. I've also fixed some AI/dialogue in other vampire encounters. However, I'm not entirely sure I've fixed the situation you're reporting.  Let me see...

Okay, I think it's fixed. You've reported it just in time. Thanks so much again.
