[MOD] Bags of Torment

    [EDITS for brevity and clarity]

    When I ran Generalized Biffing, if I then reinstalled PST:EE, then I had text lines in various places replaced with hexadecimal strings. It seemed to affect dialogue options for the Save Nordom! mod, and some of the menu options in Alter Senses (Settings) for EE-specific content.

    @argent77- sent you a message, including what Wisp said on those forums about WeiDU and Linux versions of all IE Enhanced Edition games.

    Apparently, the solution is to mount a case-insensitive filesystem and install EE games there. If I remember right, the instructions I read were to mount up a NTFS partition just for EE games. It seems the implementation is just not optimized to Linux very well and essentially the fix is to put it in a more Windows-like environment.

    It reminds me too much of past struggles: virtualization with VirtualBox with vanilla PST, and gemRB. Lots of hair-pulling.

    Oh. I found mention of ciopfs through reddit. Again, not terribly intuitive, but eh. Probably will pull out a lot more hair until someone has mercy on me and can give me a few step-by-step directions.

    Thank you!
  • Markus_RamikinMarkus_Ramikin Member Posts: 25 seems not to work atm. Are there any other locations where the Biffing mod can be obtained? My google-fu is coming up with nothing...

    Try this:

    This is the raw project archive. You will have to move the content out of the top level directory (generalized_biffing-master) and you need to provide a setup executable for the mod. Simply create a copy of "setup-BagsOfTorment.exe" and rename it to "setup-generalized_biffing.exe".

    Ah yes, the weidu exe which Goes By Many Names. ;)

    Thank you very much, I'll try that.

    BTW, offtopic but
    I liked your solution to the candlestick exit portal key issue (which I accidentally discovered because I happened to pick the crypt as the area in which to test the modron maze reset bug). So obvious it's clever.

    Oh, no. I had installed the Generalized Biffing but lost the items in my bag anyway.

    I've tried the installer again to be sure, and it shows me the option to reinstall it, so it was installed. Anything I can do? My last manual save is waaaaay before I've entered the maze.

    Edit: I thought about continue playing this way and cheating in items that I lost, but even out of the dungeon things got restarted. Fog of war everywhere, items that I have already collected can be collected again, NPCs status reseted.

    Edit 2: I've found a cloud save with just a coule of hours!

    Looks like you found a solution.

    In any case, to work around this bug, install "Generalized Biffing" with the option to biff everything after all other mods. Otherwise, any game resources left in the override folder may trigger this bug. Once this bug is triggered there is no easy way to fix it (short of repairing all game changes manually).

    Hi, I have a question about this mod regarding its containers. Does they disappear (after, if I remember correctly, 24 in-game hours without entering the area) if I leave them to the ground? Thanks in advance
  • argent77argent77 Member Posts: 3,135
    Yes, ground piles will disappear after a while, except for quest-critical items. If you accidentally left a bag on the ground and it has already disappeared, you can use the following console commands to recreate them:
    Imp Leather Bag:

    Modron Storage Crystal:

    Pocket Singularity (unsealed):
    Any content left inside a bag should be restored as well.
