Q: I have the Concurrent Romance/Multiromance patch installed, and--
A: I don't care. Multiromance scripts tend to be fraught with problems and run
totally counter to the purpose of the flirt packs anyway, which is to make the
romances individually satisfying.
Q: Hey! They're not flirting in SOA! What's wrong?
A: Probably nothing. Aerie and Viconia will not flirt until after their fourth
LOVETALK (LoveTalk=8). Jaheira will not flirt until just before or just after
her sixth LOVETALK (LoveTalk=12). Anomen won't flirt until after his fifth
LOVETALK, and then has a series of crabby conversations with the PC, so he
doesn't pick up again until after LT 16. They also will not flirt in the
Underdark, or after cross words have been exchanged, or they're obsessing over
some really heavy issues (Jaheira and the Harpers, late in her romance, between
LoveTalk=59 and =62, or Viconia at the various times she gets angry and
Q: Hey! They aren't flirting in TOB! What's wrong?
A: Aerie won't flirt in TOB until after her second LOVETALK. Otherwise her
initial LOVETALKs didn't make a ton of sense. As of V0.81, we've added a
new response for her that makes this more clear. Similarly, Viconia won't flirt
in TOB until after her first LOVETALK.
Q: Hey, why does NPC X have more/more interesting flirts than NPC Y?
A: It's not a conspiracy. We wrote what we thought of, that seemed fun and
reasonable, for each NPC. We were not and are not trying to meet any sort
of "equality" for word count or flirt choices.
Q: But I really want to do XYZ to my favorite love interest! Why can't I?
A: Well, it's possible that we thought of it but didn't write it for
whatever reason--thought it was inappropriate, couldn't think of enough
interesting responses, felt we had plenty of other choices already. But you
can always make suggestions on the NPC Flirt forums athttp://forums.pocketplane.net
and we will, at least, read your request.
Q: Is there a difference between evil and neutral Viconia in the flirt pack?
A: Yes, some of the flirt responses will be different if you "redeem" her. There
is also the prospect of getting a new epilogue for evil Viconia.
Q: Hey, I did ABC to my love interest and he/she responded in a manner that
is TOTALLY OUT OF CHARACTER for them! What gives?
A: Hmmm. Well, we do try our best to capture what we see as the spirit of
each NPC and their romance, but of course the nature of the flirt packs are
to put them in situations that aren't explicitly explored in Bioware's
writing. So you may not ALWAYS agree. If you still think something is
grievously out of character, you can always let us know and we may
address it in a future release.
Q: Hey, I liked the original Jaheira romance epilogue/the Jaheira romance
epilogue that comes with Ascension just fine. How can I still get it?
A: In the new conversation about your future, simply tell her that
"Things will work out as they always have." (get it? The way they always
have in the game thus far!)
Q: Hey! Anomen is saying lines I don't remember him saying in SOA!
A: We added a bit of script so that Anomen, immediately after he falls from the
Order, gets the new select/confirm lines that he normally gets in TOB if he's
not a knight.
Q: Hey! I don't think Anomen needs a new epilogue! How can I prevent it?
A: At present, Anomen has only one new epilogue available to him--if he is CN
and the PC chooses to ascend to godhood. Late in the game CN Anomen will
initiate a discussion about the future. If you wish to avoid the dialogue path
that could give him a new epilogue, tell him "The future will be what it always
has been." This will ensure that you see the Bioware (or Ascension) epilogue.
Q: Hey! I didn't get a new Jaheira romance epilogue at all! I got the old
A: Well, either you chose to ascend (we've left that epilogue alone), told
Jaheira that "Things will work out as they always have," or it's a bug.
Q: Hey! In your stupid new epilogue, Jaheira broke up with me! What gives?
A: Well, either your PC was a jerk when she asked about the future, or he
is an evil man, not the kind she wanted to spend the rest of her life with.
Q: Hey! I can't get this new Viconia epilogue! What's the problem?
A: You're probably not evil enough. You need to be REALLY bad news. You'll need
an evil or CN protagonist. You'll need to be a bad example--so, don't try to
redeem Viconia or anybody else, and don't help old ladies across the street. And
tell Viconia that you want to spend the rest of your mortality being bad news.
Q: Hey! My character had slept with Anomen before I installed the flirt pack but
the flirt options make it look like I turned him down! What happened?
A: Unlike with Aerie and Jaheira, the optional sex with Anomen is not tracked
by a variable. We had to add that variable. So in a saved game where you've
ALREADY reached that conversation with Anomen, the flirt pack assumes you didn't
take him up on his offer. This is a bit of a shame but it's the decision that
ensures nobody really misses anything.
Q: Hey! Wait a sec! Where's a new epilogue for a neutral Viconia?
A: Sorry, but there isn't one. Viconia's end may be sad but it is fitting.
Q: Hey! I'm getting this "One approaches" dialogue from Anomen, but nothing
A: This is actually a bug that can appear in an unmodified game. Use the console
and press CTRL+I with Anomen standing close to Terl. (this may trigger other
party banters first, so be patient.)
Q: You can shave Anomen?
A: Yes, late in the SOA romance, in an inn.
Q: Anomen without the beard? Huh. Is it going to grow back or is it stuck this
A: It'll grow back after a week of game-time.
Q: The Anomen flirt pack makes me like Anomen way more than Kelsey. Should I
tell Jason this, or say it aloud anywhere Jason might hear?
Q: Y'all are pretty dirty-minded, it seems to me.
A: That's not a question.
