[(BG2, BGEE) Bug] Cavalier resist fear vs. magic resistance (0813)

CamDawgCamDawg Member, Developer Posts: 3,394
edited August 2012 in Fixed
Currently the cavalier's innate resist fear ability is subject to magic resistance, causing it to occasionally fail. The magic resistance check should be removed:
// cavalier resist fear
COPY_EXISTING ~spcl222.spl~ ~override~
READ_LONG 0x64 "abil_off"
READ_SHORT 0x68 "abil_num"
READ_LONG 0x6a "fx_off"
FOR (index = 0 ; index < abil_num ; index = index + 1) BEGIN
READ_BYTE ("%abil_off%" + (0x28 * "%index%")) "type"
PATCH_IF ("%type%" = 1) BEGIN // melee
READ_SHORT ("%abil_off%" + 0x1e + (0x28 * "%abil_num%")) "abil_fx_num"
READ_SHORT ("%abil_off%" + 0x20 + (0x28 * "%abil_num%")) "abil_fx_idx"
FOR (index2 = 0 ; index2 < abil_fx_num ; index2 = index2 + 1) BEGIN
WRITE_BYTE ("%fx_off%" + 0x0d + (0x30 * ("%abil_fx_idx%" + "%index2%"))) 3 // dispel/bypass MR
END
END
END

    This has been integrated and should be present in the next build.

    @CamDawg, @Coriander: Not fixed.
    This didn't make it into the update? I see some magic resistance flags set to 1 and some set to 3.
    Remove fear/morale penalties, for example.
    Some have been fixed, i don't understand the difference.

    The code is definitely in.

    Any Betazoid can check their file in an editor?

  • Avenger_teambgAvenger_teambg Member, Developer Posts: 5,862
    @CamDawg i don't like this line in the script: PATCH_IF ("%type%" = 1) BEGIN // melee
    Doesn't really make sense in a spell where you want to update all effects.
    So, i'm pretty sure @Coriander is right about the code is in their tp2 pack, but it isn't working correctly.

  • CamDawgCamDawg Member, Developer Posts: 3,394
    Nah, it's another bug--I'm using index to increment the first loop and then using the static abil_num to find the offsets within the loop. The fixed (and verified as working) code:
    // cavalier resist fear
    COPY_EXISTING ~spcl222.spl~ ~override~
    READ_LONG 0x64 "abil_off"
    READ_SHORT 0x68 "abil_num"
    READ_LONG 0x6a "fx_off"
    FOR (index = 0 ; index < abil_num ; index = index + 1) BEGIN
    READ_SHORT ("%abil_off%" + (0x28 * "%index%")) "type"
    PATCH_IF ("%type%" = 1) BEGIN // melee
    READ_SHORT ("%abil_off%" + 0x1e + (0x28 * "%index%")) "abil_fx_num"
    READ_SHORT ("%abil_off%" + 0x20 + (0x28 * "%index%")) "abil_fx_idx"
    FOR (index2 = 0 ; index2 < abil_fx_num ; index2 = index2 + 1) BEGIN
    WRITE_BYTE ("%fx_off%" + 0x0d + (0x30 * ("%abil_fx_idx%" + "%index2%"))) 3 // dispel/bypass MR
    END
    END
    END

    ...and sorry, I've really been checking this code before posting, I'm not sure how this slipped in.

    Ahh, ok. Reading this code isn't easy. At least the problem was caught, it really needs multiple eyes to catch all bugs.

  • WispWisp Member Posts: 1,102
    Plug for GET_OFFSET_ARRAY. Abstract your problems away!

  • TanthalasTanthalas Member Posts: 6,738
    I think I'll move this to Confirmed Not Fixed and I'll drop some names so the extra code that @CamDawg provided is added.

    @Nathan, @Coriander
    Pretty please?

  • NathanNathan Member Posts: 990
    edited August 2012
    @Tanthalas, Thanks for name-droppin. I've replaced the code as specified and this should be in the next build. I've said it before but I'll say it again, thanks for all your hard work everyone. You guys rock.

  • TanthalasTanthalas Member Posts: 6,738
    Confirmed Fixed in Build 0815

    Recruited Tethoril and Viconia (gave her a potion of magic protection that bumped her magic resistance to 100) and cast Remove fear on them. The spell took effect.

  • Avenger_teambgAvenger_teambg Member, Developer Posts: 5,862
    Confirmed fixed, Viconia doesn't resist helpful hands, but keeps her secret.
