    It will, but the variable for his creation won't be set and you might end up with two Bions or some such.

    I've updated the files you asked for Silverstar. They're not up yet as I still want to check some more stuff before updating further.
    However you can find an updated Dart of Icy Death here.

    I've also made a quick description for the Calm to Chaos staff. It won't be included until I update, but if you're curious here it is:

    Quarterstaff +3: Calm to the Chaos

    Rumour has it that this staff was carved by an ancient force known only as the 'Silverstar'; however no written evidence exists to back up that claim. Despite the mysteries surrounding its origin one can naught but marvel at the power whomever created it must have wielded.

    A series of interlocking runes runs down the shaft revealing powerful enchantments that, to a degree, has the power to control the very matter of chaos - offering limited protections to Mages who have devoted their time to the study of wild magic. In practice this means that when wielding this weapon one will be surrounded by a constant Chaos Shield, helping the Mage guide the wild surges increasing the chances of a profitable result. As with all things related to wild magic nothing is ever given and there's still the chance of something completely unpredicted occurring.

    Over and out.

    So then one also will have to set the variable global for Bion via CLUAconsole as well, heh, I am getting hang of this coding thing, I think!


    Dart of Icy Death? Why I have that item also and it works fine. Did you mean Icicles throwing daggers that we have been discussing? :confused:

    OMG, Olimikrig, you are too kind! This is just so cool, I LOVE the description! Thank you! :) At last now I have an item with my name on the boards with it too! :banana:

    Yup, I generally just recommend starting a new game because to my knowledge a lot of people don't like fiddling with the globals.

    Oh yeah, go me! I accidenlty uploaded the wrong item :doh:. Anyways I have fixed Icicles, and here it is

    Glad you like it! You deserve your own item :).

    2.1 should be up one of the days, I just want to get the item list up-to-date first.

    In terms of gameplay the only real changes will be correct description on calm to chaos and the fixing of Icicles.

    This seems to be an interesting mod. But the german version has so many spelling mistakes in it and contains sometimes not even the kind of a weapon in the information text... That makes it much less interesting.

    Well, since this 4.5 year old thread is resurrected anyway: Is this the same as the "setup-BoM" file I have in my harddrive? Because the readme talks of quests and characters like Tal, so it's more than just an item pack...

    I'm sorry that the German translation does not live up to your expectations. Seeing as I do not speak German myself, I cannot quality assure it, and it is provided as is.

    I *might* revisit this project at some point to squash some of the remaining bugs, i which case I'll try and see if I can get someone to take a look at the German translation.

    So I finally got around actually updating this thing (I know :D). It now works with enhanced edition as well.

    Hopefully the last bugs should be sorted out now, but let me know if you find anything.

    Can't quite remember if I have this installed or not. And thus, if I should update it or not :)

    How did I miss this. The guys who came up with the item descriptions deserve an award, the flavor text fits BG2 a lot better than even a lot of the EE stuff.

    Thanks Paracelsi - the item descriptions were based off of ideas from the whole SP community. Olim, myself and Malovae did a bunch ourselves & I edited them all for typos and fluency, adding bits to the descriptions I thought had a really nice story going on.

    Sorry. I thought the original post was so old it was not the latest file. :thanks:

    --

    I'm getting an error:

    ERROR: error loading [setup-BoM/are]
    Stopping instilation because of error.
    ERROR Instaling [Boards of Magick item pack!], rolling back to previous state
    Will uninstall 24 files for [SETUP-BOM.TP2] component 0.
    Uninstalled 24 files for [SETUP-BOM.TP2] component 0.
    Unix.Unix_error(20, "stat", "Setup-BoM/are")



    I've got it in my BG2EE directory and have selected that path for the install file to use but it gives me that error?? Any ideas what is wrong? I don't have a separate BG2ToB folder only the BG2EE one. Originally the initial/default game directory was for a gog folder but my game isn't in the gog folder so I had to change it.

    Would appear the archive is missing a folder (specifically the area folder) :rolleyes:. Posting an update now. Should be up as soon as it has been approved by Taluntain.
