    well, since i dont have the gog version, i cant write the code into it. i would have to see the diff between iwd2.exe of both versions.

    Well arent you in luck? Tal should (by now) have gotten the download update to sorcerers.net. I guess the real question is has someone tried finesse with that version lately?

    In either case, i dont have access to my normal dev box (read: super [old but working] computer i use to code [and play old games]) until november...so any changes to the stuff until then will be strictly untested ;)

    If someone with the GOG version wants to shoot me a PM so i can get with them on working out a fix, by all means lets get a compatible patch.

    Everything on SP should have been updated a long time ago but let me know if I've missed anything...

    ok so it seems like the only difference (as i thought) was the GOG exe uses a no-cd "patched" exe (the no-cd cracks applied to the CD version make the exe's identical)

    This makes my job easy as i dont have to re-engineer all my changes :D
    and if this really is an approved modification to the exe, i can enable that 'feature' :p

    i am waiting to take a look at a 2nd copy of the gog exe to ensure i didnt mix em up somewhere. once confirmed, i can work on making a compatible patcher.

    edit: yep, the difference between CD copy and GOG version is the no-cd "patch" (;))...thats it.
    edit2: ok GOG folks, you're all set, see first post

    Does anyone know what fixes are "automatic" when this is installed? Or do you have to manually make these changes? I have edited icewind2.ini to up the starting stat points to 24. Simple enough. Are these changes as easy?

    most changes are that easy. the druid spontaneous cast is not. the removed xp cap also is not.

    Tinkered around with this last night. Sweet stuff. I tried to utilize some type of your fixes for most characters in the party. Both Paladin Fixes are working fine as is the Monk Wis AC bonus w/Robes fix.

    I am at a loss when it comes down to the Druid spontaneous casting feature. What exactly is needed to get this activated? Could you give a step by step instruction?

    Could it be due to 1PP? If I install this before 1PP, will it work???

    i don't believe this is due to a conflict with 1pp. It doesn't look like it edits the iwd2.exe file, which is what's wrong. Did you use the right patch file?

    Yes, I did! This time I installed the mod first, before any others, and it worked fine. So I suppose one of the mods may have made a small change to the EXE....

    Mindchild, you mentioned earlier that you created some custom feats for IWD2? Is it possible that you might release these feats one fay for others to use???

    :)

    Thank you for testing...i think i may have to find out where the version is stored and just have that checked as the CRC check is causing too many problems...*grumble*

    No, the feats were proof of concept only. i didn't do much testing with them.

    It's not unthinkable to do most things with feats...as long as the location for that "thing" is found. I tried a few things (attack and or damage based on wisdom, dexterity based attack speed modifier, etc) and most of them worked as expected but in the form i tested, would be quite overpowered.

    I wish someone could make a pack of some basic 3.5E feats that can be added to the game, to make the selection more tactical and balance out some underpowered classes. Off the top of my head, some feats I've seen in other games that could reasonably be implemented in IWD2:

    I'd love to see some additional feats implemented such as improved weapon specialization (additional +2 DAM), improved weapon focus (additional +1 BAB) which could make fighters much more useful at higher levels.

    Also, perhaps improved dual wield feats which give bonuses to AC, maybe rangers can get them free at higher levels, would really help to balance out the class as they really get nothing at higher levels, right now they're only worth it for the first level taken.

    And also feats like Great Strenght (+1 STR) and for the other stats as well!

    And maybe spell focus for Conjuration spells, wonder why they didn't implement that? Lots of offensive Conjurations, so why no spell focus in it? There's only for necromancy, enchantment and invocation.

    Hello,

    I've been trying to get this to work but for some reason it doesn't. First of all, whenever I've tried running Quinja patcher I'm getting spammed with virus warnings from Comodo. I'm assuming these are false positives?

    Second, when the patcher has actually opened I can put in the 'File to patch' and 'Patch File' lines but there is no button anywhere that says "Apply" anywhere so I cannot actually run it =/
    Edit: Doh, changing DPI on computer did it :p


    Getting the same checksum error as roshan now, tried it with a fresh install but no success. I'm using the gamersgate D&D Anthology version which I believe is the GoG version (It has a goggame.dll) and vista 32 bit.

    Thanks in advance!

    ok, well..hrmph

    i programmed my own patcher...it doesnt check CRCs only file versions and change locations (so it doesnt overwrite something else)

    try this...let me know how it works.

    Hi Mindchild, using your mod, I applied your mod right after patching the game with the official patch, then installed mods afterwards. the Druid spontaneous casting works perfectly fine, but when I try spontaneous casting with my clerics (both good and evil ones), it crashes the game. :(

    The following are the mods I installed:

    ---------- Added 11 hours, 36 minutes and 7 seconds later... ----------

    I started with a clean install, made sure cleric spontaneous casting was working, then applied your mod, nothing else on top of it. I still get a CTD when I try to spontaneously cast with my cleric. I used your new patcher instead of the old one that came with the mod. This is the info Windows gives regarding the CTD:

    It used to work fine, perhaps you have overlooked something this version?

    ---------- Added 9 hours, 56 minutes and 56 seconds later... ----------

    Dis some more testing - turning off DruidCast in the config fixes the problem, so currently, I have to choose between cleric and druid spontaneous casting.

    I think I played your mod around a year or more ago, and the spontaneous casting worked fine, both clerics and druids, if I remember correctly.

    Thanks for taking a look at this! :)

    try this:
    Code:
    https://docs.google.com/open?id=0Bxu7DFeKfYs5S1JrcVBoQ2w0RVE

    yeah, figured out the problem...i had forgotton a fundamental rule about std calls...ECX,EAX,EDX aren't protected through a call...thus when i used ECX afterwords...if it compiled to use ecx, it wouldnt work (the fact that druid works was a stroke of luck).

    Easy fix on a fresh brain...i just hope vs2008 express didnt break any of the other functions...

    probably about time for a refresh anyway...


    Update: ok, so i need someone to double check something for me...

    I've moved the feat requirement checks to a 2da file...
    As such, i have had to hand type the requirements into the file and program something to read these requirements.

    If someone is willing to test what i have and look over the file to make sure i didn't miss something, it would help :)

    PM if you can help
    Thx

    Still having trouble installing with GOG version

    OK, so I've read this thread a few times right up to the part where you say "ok GOG folks, you're all set, see first post" and I still don't see how to fix the problem.

    How do I implement/remove the "no CD crack" to get this mod to work with the GOG version?

    Thanks,

    There is a separate patch for GOG users now. or you could try to download the patcher in post #93 as it should work on either version.
