  Hum... just a question Sim, why is there mentionned a v9.0 component ( "Smarter Irenicus") in the v8.0 Readme file ?
Would you already have secret projects... like making such a thing ? :D

Regarding Ghreyfain's Holy Symbol Fix....

Anomen: Is there any way to make this contiguous with the tweak that grants the LG Anomen the Priest of Helm kit and the CN Anomen the Berserker kit? (LennonCook & I had the same idea, but we also planned to have Cor appropriate the Delryn Family Shield and Helmet when disowning Anomen, with the items recoverable after his death.) Even if not, should the CN Anomen recieve *any* Holy Symbol at all?

Viconia: I suggest a slight addition to DIALOG.TLK, turning her into a Priestess of Shar, and giving her (or her Holy Symbol) some Abilities related to Shar's portfolio, such as Blindness and PW: Blind.

Aerie: I don't think Multiclassed Priests (apart from Fighter/Clerics & Ranger/Clerics) should be allowed kits at all, but some minor Nature-based special abilities, such as Goodberries, Entangle, Charm/Summon Animal, or Tracking might not be amiss.

If you want Viconia to be a Priest of Shar, grab the Cleric remix mod :).

If Anomen the a Priest of Helm kit he'll get the Holy Symbol of Helm. Ghrey's Fix will be redundent in this case, but it can be safely installed along with Kit Anomen in order to get the other fixes.

I like the idea of Anomen not getting a Holy Symbol if he is CN. I might implement that myself.

I was wondering if this was known to be incompatible w/ any other mods.  I have tob, big picture (along with tdd, sos and ts), npc banterpack, freedoms reign-reign of virtue, item upgrade and npc flirt installed and the unlimited summoning and kill cespanar components wont work, i have yet to encounter any demons to test the other components.

Unlimited summonning requires ToB, but I'm assuming you have that considering the mods you list. Aside from that, I see no way in which they could fail to install; can you send me an installation log showing the failure?

After the installation fails, a setup-d0tweak.debug file should appear in your BG2 directory. This is what I need. Send it to SimDing0@pocketplane.net

Okay, have I misunderstood the problem you're having? There's no installation error showing up in the log, so did you mean it wasn't working ingame rather than it was failing to install?

The unlimited summonning component won't affect summonning spells installed by other mods. There may also be some mods which overwrite its effects, meaning it's wise to install it after them.

As for Kill Cespenar, the only explanation I can think of is something else overwriting the Cespenar creature.

This tweak pack seems nice.. I'm thinking about installing it atop Big Picture too but I've some questions:

1 - Does your mod replaces the creatures, itens, scripts, whatsoever.. or it just changes (or append, if thats the right term) the ones being used ? Cause if, for example, it changes the Celestial Fury .itm (or whatever the extension) , dont think I could upgrape it since the item identity was changed and cromwell would not recognize it as being the exact same celestial fury wich he has an upgrape for. I may be wrong but this seems how things work.

2 - Lets say BP uses a different Sarevok, wich is named (hopefully) slightly different than the one the normal game uses, weidu would aplly changes to this one, or would try to find the original sarevok.. or would aplly changes regardless of name and maybe the game would crash when he appears, or its a wait for sarevok to appear and see what happens kind of thing ?

3 - Lets say I've another mod installed wich also may change demons behaviors (BP probably has one but who knows, I'm just guessing so theres less to worry about later :)  ), I take its a script who makes that behavior thingy.. in any case, wich one would take precedence, your script or the ones that were trying to command demons before it ?

4 - Would you recomend NOT to install some components ?

5 - Last and more important, how many times can I kill cespy ? I can ressurect and rekill him as many times as I his reeducation process takes right ?

sorry if my questions are well.. dumb or pointless, I just dont have enough knowledge in this department :)

Nice mod anyway.

The Celestial Fury ITM isn't touched. All I do is extend a few scripts. The majority of components avoid overwriting, with exceptions such as the Goodberries component, which overwrites the spell, and the Cespenar component, which overwrites the creature (although this can easily be changed to patch it instead if compatibility issues arise).

I don't touch Sarevok's CRE, but the weapon he uses, and this is patched rather than overwritten.

Mine should do.

4 - Would you recomend NOT to install some components ?
My general design philosophy is to create mods that I would play with myself. The components I'd recommend giving most consideration are Restore Dimension Door, Summonning Cap Removal, and Kill Cespenar.

5 - Last and more important, how many times can I kill cespy ? I can ressurect and rekill him as many times as I his reeducation process takes right ?
How are you planning to resurrect him? :)

Nice mod anyway.
Thanks. Hope you enjoy it.

Will the goodberries part work in Tutu?
I'm drooling at the thought of 3 point healing in Tutu.  ;D

So obviously skip the things that appear ot apply only to SoA/Tob, and install after Tutu in the Tutu install directory (I hope. It's already installed with the old interface, and it seems to work, must have done something right)

Is there any chance that you could post an alternative, less proprietary packaging of the TweakPack? That is, .rar or .zip (like the QuestPack for instance)? As as Mac user, it's a bit of a hassle having to first copy the archive to a pc to be able to expand it, and then copying it back.

All my mods currently are SFX-RAR-- and I'm sure Macs must have some archiving tool which can open SFX files as normal RARs. (And if you can extract Quest Pack, you should be able to extract anything I've made.)

Indeed you are correct. Please excuse my previous moronic post, as I should have tried downloading the most recent version before posting it. Apparently the uncooperative archive was less recent than I remembered. :-[

Well, I'm just pleased to hear that it actually IS possible to extract SFX files on a Mac, since I've just been assuming all this time. So thanks. :)
