The Neera Banters - Version 0.9.1

http://github.com/AstroBryGuy/NeeraBanters/releases/latest

Do you wish Neera would interact more with her companions in Baldur's Gate: Enhanced Edition? Then this mod is for you! The Neera Banters mod adds banters between Neera and other joinable NPCs available in BGEE. There is at least one banter with every* joinable NPC _(ok, not quite **every** - there is one exception, for narrative reasons)_.

The mod also adds interjections in various dialogues. Currently, only a handful of interjections are added, but more are planned.


INSTALLATION

Windows
On successful extraction, there should be an neerabanters folder and a setup-neerabanters.exe file in your game folder. To install, simply double-click setup-neerabanters.exe and follow the instructions on screen.
Run setup-neerabanters.exe in your game folder to reinstall, uninstall or otherwise change components.

Mac OS X
If properly extracted, you should have a neerabanters folder, setup-neerabanters, and setup-neerabanters.command in your game's main directory folder. To install, simply double-click setup-bneerabanters.command and follow the instructions on screen.

If you have installation problems or encounter any bugs, please leave a message in this forum discussion.

    It shouldn't. @LiamEsler‌'s Neera expansion contains additional dialog between Neera and CHARNAME. There's no dialog with CHARNAME in this mod. It is all dialogs with other NPCs.

    Thanks for adding more Neera banter!

    I looked through the files and noticed some potential typos:


    ay#bneera.d:

    ~Yes, I hast stood beside mine sisters in battle against the Thayvians.~

    Thayvians -> Thayans

    ~Those droppings were stumbled upon earlier were pretty disgusting too. Phew!

    were stumbled -> we stumbled

    ~It could have been worse, I guess. I didn't turn my myself into a squirrel! At least, not that time...~

    turn my myself -> turn myself

    ~What? You mean trekkin' up and down the Sword Coast, fighting’ bandits and goblins, runnin' errands for strangers?~

    fighting’ -> fightin'

    ~The bugs are eating me alive! It's like their drawn to me - and just me. Why aren’t they bothering you?~

    their -> they're

    ~Oooooooo.... That feels good. So cool and soothing.~

    Oooooooo.... -> Oooooooo...

    ~We shall have to get you a new pair the next time we are in town. Until then, try these on. They are a old pair of Jaheira's. They may be old, but well c-c-cared for. You're both half-elven, they may fit.~

    a old pair -> an old pair

    ~Will ya shut yer yap, ya peevish rug-haired witch!?! Every creature in this damned hole will be on to us with all the racket yer makin'!~

    yer makin' -> ye're makin'

    ~*sigh* we’re doomed...~

    we’re -> We're

    ~Well, aren’t you the nosy one. If you must know, it was gathering some cochineal insects.~

    it was -> I was


    ay#redwiz.d:

    ~Um, excuse me, , but that creep is a Red Wizard. There is no way am I going to be in a party with a Red Wizard! It’s him or me!~

    am I -> I am

    I've updated the banters with @Hook71's typos fixed*.

    *except "Thayvian" (WotC started using only Thayan with 3rd Edition, so I'm invoking my greybeard card and continuing to use "Thayvian" as in my TSR sourcebooks :wink: )

    Nice! Only one of the lines in ay#redwiz.d was changed though... You have six more in need of fixing.

    I'll get right on that. :blush:

    EDIT: Alright, should be fixed now.

    Hi @AstroBryGuy - we've added Neera Banters to BiG World Setup for BG:EE/EET. It will always download the latest release [including pre-releases], and the forum link from the tool comes to this thread.

    Hi there!
    The .tra files are not available. Can you please consider the chance to add them? Otherwise the mod cannot be translated. Thanks :)
  • AstroBryGuyAstroBryGuy Member Posts: 3,415
    I'll put that on my "todo" list. Thanks for the reminder!

    Thank you! Neera wants to speak Italian :)
  • AedanAedan Member, Translator (NDA) Posts: 8,543
    @AstroBryGuy
    Ciao!
    I just want to repeat our interest in translating this nice mod, but first we need the .tra files :)

    Bug report.

    You dropped a '~' at the end of line 17 of ay#bneera.d

    *Edit*. More profound than that, actually. The Neera-Eldoth banter breaks the install (BELDOT.DLG not found), %BGT_VAR% doesn't work at all... Maybe my own install is fubar, checking that now. But, yea, totally dropped a '~' at least.

    The "master" branch of GitHub is still in development. I uploaded a bunch of stuff when my drive was going on the fritz. Stick to the releases until I have a chance to work on this mod again

    nice to see this mod finally get updated after 3 years. it always bothered me that the ee npcs don't talk that much mostly because i use the npc project mod so they feel hallow in comparison. i mean they do talk during the mini encounter mod and afew npc mods but other then that they are silent after they finish their quests. wish someone would make a banter mod for dorn and rassad as well.

    I installed Neera Banters, but the option to give Neera her portrait from the start menu failed to install.

    Could it be this component doesn't work in BGEE version 2.3?

    Steps I took before installing Neera Banters were applying ModMerge, the BigWorldFixPack, BG Mini quest and encounters, NPC1Project and Chatty Imoen, before installing the Neera Banter with the WeiDu setup.

    I'm sorry I didn't take a screenshot of the error. If needed, I might try to replicate the error for you by applying it on a fresh instal?

    @Son_of_Imoen - Did it fail to install, or did it install and then not work in the game?

    If you do replicate the error, please attach a copy of the SETUP-NEERABANTERS.DEBUG file.

    It's been awhile since I posted that, I'll need to take some time to find out what the answer to your question is. I've put it on my To Do list to answer, but right now I'm not even near my own PC, I'm away for a weekend.

    @AstroBryGuy, sorry to have kept you waiting, but my test is ready now.

    I made a clean install to install the Neera Banters to. The DLC portrait failed to install.

    The first time I applied the Neera Banters to a clean install, the second time I applied it after using modmerge on the clean install,

    the result is the same: all components do install but for the DLC portrait.

    I include both SETUP-NEERABANTERS.DEBUG files but had to rename them to .txt for being allowed to include it as an attachement.

    @Son_of_Imoen - I think this is a platform issue. The COPY command works fine on macOS, but maybe there is problem with the trailing "/" in Windows.

    Try the attached version to see if it works. If it does, I'll release it generally.

    v0.9.1 installs fine for me on current BG:EE and SoD (Windows 7 Ultimate)

  • AstroBryGuyAstroBryGuy Member Posts: 3,415
    @Jastey - Thanks! Did you try the DLC portrait component?
  • jasteyjastey Member Posts: 2,140
    I installed all components each time. They all installed successully (as of the install note). Do you want me to test something else in game?
    AstroBryGuy
  • AstroBryGuyAstroBryGuy Member Posts: 3,415
    @Jastey - No, I just wanted to make sure that component installed on Windows. It looks like it was the trailing “/“. COPY works on macOS with it there, but apparently not on Windows.

    I don't see a 0.9.1 release version on Github. There are some individual files, but the latest release seems to be 0.9?
  • AstroBryGuyAstroBryGuy Member Posts: 3,415
    Whoops. I left the GitHub release in "draft" status by mistake. Corrected!
