    Nice find ! I guess it's the feature that was hinted here.

    The latest BG2:EE patch added a nifty new feature, but apparently forgot to make it available via in-game options (unless I'm blind or it's very well hidden). The next version of this mod will make this and several more options available.

    Some screenshots of this feature:

    Want to cast a fireball without hurting allies?


    Who is crossing the line of Agannazar's Scorcher?


    Dude!

    @argent77

    Is this mod compatible with Kjeron's Dual-Into-Kit?

    Thanks and good job.

  • argent77argent77 Member Posts: 2,645
    Both mods focus on different aspects of the UI and should therefore not interfere with each other in theory.

    @Brecher This mod is very sensitive if other UI mods have been installed before. It uses some special handling to make it work for a few selected UI mods (e.g. by rearranging options, etc.). LeUI-SoD is not yet covered by this mod.

    However, it looks like LeEU-SoD is very similar to standard LeUI, so the following fix may work:
    1. Open the file HiddenGameplayOptions/setup-HiddenGameplayOptions.tp2 with a text editor
    2. Go to line 8 and replace the line
    OUTER_SET INSTALLED_LEUI = (MOD_IS_INSTALLED ~leui.tp2~ 0) OR (MOD_IS_INSTALLED ~leui-iwdee.tp2~ 0)
    by
    OUTER_SET INSTALLED_LEUI = (MOD_IS_INSTALLED ~leui.tp2~ 0) OR (MOD_IS_INSTALLED ~leui-iwdee.tp2~ 0) OR (MOD_IS_INSTALLED ~leui-sod.tp2~ 0)
    3. Save the file
    4. Install the mod

    Correct. This option controls whether party members trigger bored sounds after an extended period of inactivity. (The mod's readme is a bit more verbose than the in-game description in that regard.)

  • valamyrvalamyr Member Posts: 109
    Anyone got "Show Area of Effect Range" to work? It doesnt do anything for me. Big World install, 2.3 all across. Mind you Ive played this so much I dont need it, but it would be interesting.

    Also "bored sounds" seems not to work right, if I try to disable it and restart the game, it comes back enabled always. Show Area can be toggled on and off correctly but does nothing. Just checking whether others had more luck. Other options Ive tested seemed to work well enough.

    "Show Area of Effect Range" has only been added to the latest 2.5 patch (more specifically to v2.5.16.6). There is no way to check the version number of the games at install time, that's why this option is available to all game versions.

    The "Trigger Bored Sounds" toggle should work fine in any EE game though. It always worked in my tests, regardless of the game. It seems some options are specially protected by the game engine and may reset under certain circumstances. Sometimes it helps to disable Gameplay > Feedback > "More confirmation prompts" to make some options to stick.

    You can add or update the option manually in baldur.lua though:
    SetPrivateProfileString('Game Options','Bored Timeout','0')

    Does AoE Indicator appear moddable to allow different cursors in future?
    Im thinking:
    1. Red
    2. Circles from EE character-markers

  • argent77argent77 Member Posts: 2,645
    I haven't seen anything yet that can be modified (except for the toggle to turn it on or off). The indicator itself seems to be hardcoded, possibly only influenced by the properties of the spell projectile.

    Just installed it to get the LUA options I didn't know about, yet … thanks for those!

    Just wanted to note, installing the new version on BG:EE 2.3 completely breaks UI.

  • argent77argent77 Member Posts: 2,645

    Just wanted to note, installing the new version on BG:EE 2.3 completely breaks UI.

    I can't reproduce it. The mod worked fine in my v2.3 installations of BGEE with or without SoD.

    Can you be more specific? What doesn't work? Do you have installed other UI mods? Did you execute DLC Merger or modmerge if your game is from Steam or GOG?

  • compleCCitycompleCCity Member Posts: 43
    No other mods. (Some individual files inside override, nothing GUI specific.)

    I did ask myself before: do I have to DLC/mod-merge before installing? Hadn't found info about that inside the ReadMe, so I installed it into my unmerged (and still not updated) GOG directory. Guess, that's the problem?

    More specific is difficult, as I don't know earlier/the latest version of the GUI. It looked like a more classic GUI, compared with that completely new feel of BG:EE's 2.3.
    First: I did land on some original launch screen, not the "big icon to the left – SP, MP, continue, options to the right", where I had to choose the campaign first. Then four (six?) buttons around a centered icon, but that wasn't there, only background visuals (the snakeskin pattern). I did, however, find the additional options inside the different sections (only wondered about some dragon tale as description for what the fog option might be).

    I should have merged before, right?

    (Oh, and by the way, that above could have been here earlier, but first had to pass some spam text. Hopefully this reply's up faster.)

  • argent77argent77 Member Posts: 2,645
    Sounds like not having merged the DLC with the main game is the issue here. Merging is always required before you install any mods. Otherwise the wrong files are being patched. In the best case you won't see any changes, but it's more likely that everything is messed up.

    What exactly are "cosmetic attacks"? Installing this mod for PST:EE and not sure what to do with this option...

  • Mantis37Mantis37 Member Posts: 798
    I think that controls whether the animations only represent actual attacks when virtual dice are rolled, or if they are continously dodging about. So a high level fighter will likely move a lot more than a wizard making only one attack per round.

    Markus_Ramikin
  • argent77argent77 Member Posts: 2,645
    By default characters will show more or less the same number of attack animations, regardless whether real attacks are being made. If cosmetic attacks are disabled, the animation is only shown if an actual attack is made.

    It's mostly a matter of taste which option is better. It might look awkward if your mage is only making one swing and standing around for the remainder of the round.

    Note that in the 2nd edition books, it was described that your character was constantly swinging their weapon as part of combat, but most of these would miss, and you'd roll the die to see if one of these would connect. Warrior levels and profession bonuses would increase the amount of attacks that have a chance to connect.

    Of course, 2nd edition had rounds that lasted a full minute, which was revised to 6 seconds in 3rd edition.
