    [​IMG] I installed it on an XP computer as well, and then just copied the successfully fixed exe file to my Vista laptop. I'm afraid that's the extent of my expertise...:(

    Are you running a 64 bit machine and have you patched IWD2?

    I think that the CRC error is caused by one of the files being different from what the mod expects. This could be caused by a) not having an up to date version of IWD2, which I doubt; b) that the file it is checking is a 64 bit version instead of the 32 bit version that it is expecting; or c) that GOG has actually modified the file that the mod is checking.

    If I understand correctly the mod modifies only the iwd2.exe file, right?
    I can try and install XP on a virtual drive and tray to install the mod. Will
    report back. Thanks for the tip.

    PatchFX v1.30
    =============
    opening IWD2.exe...OK!
    performing crc-check ................. failed!

    PATCH WAS NOT APPLIED!

    nothing else installed, everything is in right places

    Installed WinXP in VirtualBox. Fresh GOG IWD2 install.
    Comes patched to v2.01 (101615).

    The mod does not work ...crc-check failed ...the same as on Win7.

    Also tried an no-cd fixed IWD2.exe from GCW (v2.01 (091311)) but
    the same error shows.

    Finally, I installed IWD2 from my old CD-set and it worked.
    After patching to the v2.01, the dll mod was applied, as well as
    the Level 40 XP mod and no-cd crack. As far as I tried it (start
    with a new party and toyed around with xp cheat to gain levels),
    it seems to work ok.

    so the problem is most likely incompatibility of the mod with gog version of the game? That was my hypothesis but its good to have it backed up so thanks for info. Guess I will have to keep pumping dex with my bard and use only small blades... bye bye roleplaying longsword/short sword combo :/

    Yes, the GOG iwd2.exe does not work with the dll mod.

    However, you can mod the iwd2.exe from the Cd version
    and apply the no-cd crack and use this modded iwd2.exe
    with the GOG version of the game.

    The test I was referring to above was with the GOG IWD2
    game and the modded CD version of iwd2.exe.

    would not finding an NPC that should be in a certain area and that should show up every 8 hours of game time be a bug?

    sorry for the bump but i was wondering if anyone using a version of Custom DLL was able to get weapon finesse to work normally, right now its requiring me to have at least one weapon focus before letting me take weapon finesse and only that weapon will apply for WF. i have tried to set weaponfinesse=0 but all this does is make EVERY weapon type finessable!

    is there a way to revert it to the vanilla version but still use the rest of the components of the custom DLL? would a clean iwd2+dll install do the trick?

    Darn, and I was wondering why my bastard swords have that high AB :D
    If you set the line "NewFinesse=x" to "1" it should only apply to weapons which you have focus in, else only to dagger/small swords.
    While set to "0" it applies to every weapon even if you aren't proficient in.

    Wanted to use the .dll loader only to save these skillpoints and never checked for other strange things. Maybe I'll stick to it...hmm but I usually play according the rules :O

    On a sidenote, before patching *.exe files, one should do a backup everytime ^^

    www.valkyries.de/iwd2.zip <- if it's legitim to link files, else a mod should delete this (officially patched iwd2.exe before applying the *dll loader)
    hope it's working for yer.

    edit: uhm, the 'dll-fix' is completely messed up regarding weapon finesse. while set to 0 it works only for focus'ed weapons at all and not even small blades. Guess I'll dalekeep' my bastard swords "away" and use the Brilliant shortsword further. Feels a bit odd otherwise...

    Yes, the glee i experienced when i realized i could squeeze out an additional 5 BAB for my tank or 7(!) for my decoy was shortlived when i realized it didnt make sense how he was finissesing spears and great axes as a deep gnome!

    it seems like its not just my version so i might have to avoid using this feat completely. i am using light of selune which makes weapon focus +1/+2 and weapon spec +2/+4 (both of which easily editable in near infinity) but i feel that 4 levels of fighter and 2 feats and limited weapon choice really constitutes such a buff. before it was +1/+0, +/+2 which i consider somewhat pitiful. however, in conjunction with this version of WF it would seem too unrealistic even for me.

    My decoy got +9 bonus (!) while using bastard swords. Too bad I can't save the skillpoints any more, but it was more or less for only 2 level - so it's negligible. That's the only reason I used the dll-mod/hack for...

    But reverted it back to normal and am using the pretty nasty short sword instead from the battle square. Actually I thought it was caused by iwd-tweaks after I spent the finesse feat so I didn't gave it a second thought.
    And Light of SĂȘlune nets you some awesome Bastards swords, that's the whole reason why I spent points in there.
    Used the editor now to transfer the points to other stuff which I would have choosen instead, so I guess it's not considered cheating, only 'bug-fixing' :D

    *dusts off his copy of IWD2...installs without a hitch*
    ok, whats this about weapon finesse being broken....
    *looks into code...facepalm*
    that should be fixed now, forgot to add a weapon check.

    sent tal a new version.

    Edit: removed megaupload (surprise surprise, file hosts were being used for illegal stuff). Also, Tal should have this updated by now since its been almost a year ;)

    Thank you! You have made my day, maybe even my week!

    Is there a way to update this mod without doing a clean install? i tried using backuped versions of the iwd2.exe , chitinkey and dialogtlk but i get a failed cr3 and md5 check.

    once IWD2.EXE is patched, there is no need to patch again. to update, just replace the iwd2fixes.dll (i think thats what its called...its the dll in there anyway) with the new one...while the game is closed.

    Wow, finesse is fixed after all this time! :)

    I remember this happening, I guess I must have never mentioned it.

    Gog version patch?

    Any chance of getting this to work with the gog.com version of the game? I read the entire thread, but it seems to me my only option is go without or use the CD. Any help would be appreciated.

    Thanks!
