HELP - Important ToB Dialogue Errors **minor spoilyness**

    [​IMG] Just beat the game again (SoA) with a Monk at the helm this time (ass-kicking smorgasboard, by the way). I have the following mods installed:

    - Oversight
    - Ascension
    - BoM Item Pack
    - D0 Quest Pack
    - Divine Remix
    - Item Upgrade
    - Tactics
    - Spell 50
    - Kelsey
    - Dungeon be gone
    - Unfinished business

    After I beat Illesara, I warp to the pocket plane as usual and speak to the diva (or whatever), and then Sarevok appears and initiates the dialogue that states something along the lines of "So, you have finally arrived. I have been waiting here for you." At the bottom, the dialogue box says "continue." When I click it, the dialogue quits. Every time I try to initiate a new conversation with Sarevok, the same thing happens. One click, over. I can't move further except to summon up old allies to come and fight.

    What to do, homies? Is there a global somethin'-or-other I can CLUA in to move things along here?

    OR - does anyone know what may be causing this, and what a solution might be?

    Thanks a pantload.

    EDIT - title edited to reflect larger problem.

    If you get the "Continue" box there, that means someone else in your party should be speaking up. The only four possible interjections in the unmodded game are Imoen, Jaheira, Minsc, and Edwin, but I can't know what your mods might add. Make sure everyone is close to Sarevok and try again.

    If that doesn't work, you could try removing everyone from your party before talking to Sarevok to skip the interjections.

    If that doesn't work, you can simply bypass the first convo entirely with:
    CLUAConsole:SetGlobal("TalkedToSarevok","GLOBAL",1)

    If even that doesn't work, you can skip straight to after you've given your soul to him with:
    CLUAConsole:SetGlobal("SarevokAlive","GLOBAL",1)

    Thanks, Fel - kicking everyone out of the party did work, but I've got another problem. I just beat Gromnir, and I got the same error when talking to Mellisan afterwards. Since she busts in to talk to you IMMEDIATELY after the battle is over, I can't do the "kick everyone out" trick. I think you're right - it's because the game is trying to have a party member interject, and for some reason the dialogue is broken.

    Is there any way to disable dialogue interjections? I don't really see another way out of this...

    Then you may need to beat Gromnir solo-wise, dumping every NPC before the fight. :p

    Seriously, I doN'T know how to help you. I doN'T think there is a way to cancel interactions. :(

    Maybe there's a mod (listed above) that I need to ditch. I should also note that I used SK to change Viconia into a sorceress, and the NPC mod to make Jahiera into a Ranger/Cleric, but other than that - I can't think of where the problem lies.

    First things first; who do you have in the party?

    EDIT:
    Actually, nevermind. After browsing Mel's dialogue, it's pretty clear who the problem is: Imoen. She's the only one who has interjections in both dialogues, and if I were you, I'd drop her post-haste. If I had to guess, I'd say it's probably Kelsey conflicting with another mod that's screwing up her lines, but messing around with it now isn't worth it unless you're positively determined to keep Immy.

    After you finish this game, I'd suggest a re-install after figuring out the right install order for your mods. You could try the same thing now, but I don't know how the mods would react. Maybe Silverstar can give you some insight on that. ;)

    I'll try that, Fel. I'll ditch the sis for Jan, which I actually prefer anyway. I'll let you know how it goes.

    Have you edited Imoen at all using SK? That often leads to problems.

    Ok, I've now deduced that it's definitely not an Imoen-specific problem. The concersation ends whenever ever ANY party member interjects.

    Most recently (SPOILERS) when I enter the Forest of Myr and the apparition of Gorian appears to chew me out. When he makes mention of me traveling with Sarevok, and Sarevok begins to interject, the conversation ends. RELOAD. So this time I kick Sarevok out of the party and make him wait before beginning the conversation. Now the dialog hiccups when Gorion makes mention of my love interest, in this case, Viconia.

    Basically, in order for the game to progress, I'm going to have to solo, and that just isn't an option. What have I done wrong, and what can I do to change it? I really think it has to do with one of my installed mods, because I've done ToB before with SK-edited characters and never had any problems. But even so - I'm certain that isn't the problem, because Sarevok isn't modded at all and he bumps the dialogue too.

    HELP!!! I'm having a really fun game and I don't want to abandon it. :(

    Seriously - does anyone know what mod may be causing this?

    I am so sorry pal, I really don'T know its cause or how can you fix it. Uninstall everything and get a clean, new install with the right installation order of the mods is all I can offer as advice... :wail:

    Thanks, Silvy - I'll just probably uninstall it altogether. I have better things to do. But when I get around to it again, a fresh re-install is probably in order. THanks

    I've had the same problem, and it kicked in at the worst possible time - after beating Amelyssan. (Also with a Monk, oddly enough)


    Since then I've reinstalled clean at least once, so I can't really help. Sorry.
