Need help with Song and Silence

NightWardenNightWarden Member Posts: 61
I'm having trouble installing Song and Silence. The first two components install okay, but the rest have an error. I'd appreciate some advice.

    Song & Silence isn't totally working at the moment. Basic changes and items worked for me, but not the kits.

    I got V6 to work by not installing the sphere system of Divine Remix V8 Beta, it crash my game that it did. So perhaps you have a mod that isn't completely compatible with Song and Silence?

    Do you have other mod kits installed? I've heard that the game can only handle so many extra kits before it quits registering new ones.

    That's good to know. I made the incorrect assumption that the mods listed at http://forum.baldursgate.com/discussion/15380/bg-ee-mods-and-modding-tutorials-quick-links/p1 were in working order unless designated as beta like @AstroBryGuy did when he was working on BG1NPC Project.

    I haven't tried playing Divine Remix yet. Do you recommend it?

    Yes. I have quite a few installed and plan to install more. You can see the mods I've already installed in the log attached to my first post. In addition to those, I plan to install Rogue Rebalancing, BG2 Tweak Pack, SCS, and BP Series Scripts. Every mod on the list I have successfully installed previously, with the exception of Song and Silence.

    Although I still can't say for sure what the problem IS, I can safely tell you that it isn't what I thought that it might be. It looks to me that you'd still got plenty to work with in terms of spaces for kits.

    Thanks for trying to help.

    The game can handle 255 total kits without worry, and has ~41 before mods. It takes a LOT of kit mods to hit that limit. My current IWD install has the following mods and install choices:
    Divine Remix (5 new kits)
    Song & Silence (5 new kits)
    Faerunian Monastic Orders (5 new kits)
    Frosty Journey (6 new kits)
    Tome & Blood (about 12 new kits, I think)
    Scales of Balance (25 new kits and 15 hidden kits for the kensai component)

    So about 115 total kits. Maybe you could hit 145 if you max out DR, FJ, and TnB. The only times this is really an issue is when people install a bunch of kit mods and also install big megamods like TDD which install ~40-50 by default, or when using Refinements HLAs, which I think triples the number of kits that can dual- or multi- with thief.

    Personally, the only issue I'm having with Song & Silence is that its kits get installed, but then are greyed out in the CharGen screens. I think it's a very minor issue with the new patch, I just haven't gotten around to fixing it.

    If anyone is having trouble actually *installing* S&S, it's probably a mod conflict. The DR v8 sphere system is, for the moment, not something you should be using. (The rest of DR is great, though!)

    I believe there may be a conflict between the Caina and Zarra NPC mod and Song and Silence, but I'm not adept enough to know how it can be resolved. So, for the time being I've decided to skip Song and Silence. (I'll try again in a few months.)

    Would you mind taking a look at the attached file? At the end of the 5th line you'll notice the word "false." Is that normal? Immediately after I installed Xan's Friendship mod, and with each mod afterwards, a window pops up indicating that the mod may not have installed correctly and asks me to confirm that it installed okay.
