    Okay, I've figured out that invalid string bug and patched it, but unfortunately it won't really help an existing save where your familiar is already summoned. You can try using the console if you really know what you're doing:

    Mouse over your familiar and use C:Eval('ChangeAnimationNoEffect("c0safam1")')

    Maybe that'll work. Not sure.

    @Artemius_I, I just used the summon shadows for the first time since the nurfing and you were not kidding. Going through the bandit camp with shadow fiends and they have yet to paralyze anyone. Also, they are doing non-lethal damage (see screenshot). They are quite nurfed.

    @Necromanx2

    Weird. Their natural weapon isn't equipped for some reason. Will check again.

    The only way to restrict spell learning is via kit flags.

    (Which means this mod will conflict quite badly with the Tome & Blood 'Revised Specialists' component, since that one makes all spells except Necromancy spells available to any specialist. So a Shadow Adept with those kit flags would be able to learn all spells except those from the school of Necromancy.)

    Shadow Fiends should have their natural weapons now.

    Shadow Fiends attacks are working. Thanks!!

    @Artemius_I, I have a question for you. If I have Faiths & Powers and create a cleric with a kit and then dual class to mage and use the orb to become a SA, will this work? Would I keep the F&P kit features while gaining the SA kit or will it not work?
  • subtledoctorsubtledoctor Member Posts: 7,846
    If the script uses AddKit, then you will lose the first kit (but you should not lose sphere access).

    The the Shadow Magic item uses AddSuperKit, then the old kit abilities (but not the name) will be retained.

    FnP uses AddKit for this purpose. The idea being to respect the vanilla game's limit if one kit per character.

    Wisdom-based casting effects implemented: requires AI to be enabled at game start and whenever the shadow adept's wisdom changes.

    I can tell you a way to make this happen automatically without any scripting. V. busy atm but I'll post something this weekend.
    @subtledoctor this particular point interests me for another mod, can you tell me how it's done?

    oh and that too:

    I had no clue about AddSuperKit but it would definitely help me with some of the prestige classes, what's that about?

    @Arunsun

    I have used a completely different method to implement stat based bonuses which I can try to explain when I have a bit more time, it depends on no script and constantly reapplies the effects to account for stat changes.

    The game does not support having more than one kit. I've used AddSuperKit before but if I'm not wrong it still prevents you from gaining any new abilities past your current level. I don't use it in this mod so the orb will completely override your kit.

    I really would appreciate if you told me how you processed eventually :smiley:
    Thank you mate, I really appreciate your help on everything
  • subtledoctorsubtledoctor Member Posts: 7,846
    This is off-topic so I'll kep it short, but for Prestige Classes you'll want to use AddSuperKit in your kit-switch script. For this mod, probably AddKit.

    @Artemius_I, OK no F&P Priest who duals to a Shadow Adept (bummer as I like F&P, but there is no kitless cleric available). What about a thief (no kit) who duals to the Mage (who then uses orb). Will I get the HLA you created for the SA?
  • subtledoctorsubtledoctor Member Posts: 7,846

    @Artemius_I, OK no F&P Priest who duals to a Shadow Adept (bummer as I like F&P, but there is no kitless cleric available).

    You don't need to be kitless to dual class. You can have a kit, then dual class, then use the orb and you will lose the old kit (become kitless in your cleric class) and gain the Shadow Adept kit in your mage class. It should work fine.
  • Necromanx2Necromanx2 Member Posts: 442
    I just tried to dual from an Ur Priest over to a Shadow Adept in BG2EE. It would not allow me to equip the orb to use. Does it see the Ur Priest kit as a Mage kit and thus not see me as a generalist?
  • subtledoctorsubtledoctor Member Posts: 7,846
    Oh, it's a question of usability. If it is usable by cleric/mages, and by the three cleric kits, then it should be usable by anything in FnP.

    @Artemius_I, I have complete BGEE and moved into SoD with my shadow Adept. I found two shadow items in BGEE (dagger and ring) and one in SoD so far (ring). Really like how the kit is working.

    Now I have found a couple items of concern.
    1) When your familiar is killed and respawns in 24hrs, he does not auto equip weapons (does non-lethal damage). This is easy to address by selecting a weapon for the familiar so minor. Just didn't notice at first until he knocked someone out instead of killing him.
    2) The Shadow Fiends in SoD are back to doing non-lethal damage. They were doing regular damage in BGEE, but went to non-lethal in SoD.



  • Artemius_IArtemius_I Member Posts: 2,004
    I can fix the first issue. The second is absolutely bizarre. The only explanation I have is that the weapon is from the Ghoul Touch spell which deals nonlethal damage in the vanilla game. I have a feeling they werent doing lethal damage in BG1 either - note how they're still causing paralysis meaning they're not using fists. I'm going to have to make a custom natural weapons for these things.

    @Artemius_I, I imported an 11th level Thief from BGEE into BG2EE. I dualed over to a mage and used EEKeeper to give myself the Orb. I became a Shadow Adept. I gained two levels in BG2EE (at 3rd level SA) and I still don't have the additional spell per level. I do have FnP installed last (this mod is the next to last).
    I used EEKeeper to get myself to 12th level to see if that would work and still no bonus spell per level.

    @Necromanx2

    Dual-classing into a specialist mage is bugged. You can try it with any of the vanilla specialists and you won't get the extra spell slot. I can work around it by manually adding the extra spell slots in, but I think it's a fair disadvantage compared to being a pure-class so I might not change it.
  • Necromanx2Necromanx2 Member Posts: 442
    Ah! I do see the single class Shadow Adept does get the extra spell.
    OK, I'll go with that this is as intented.
    Thanks!
  • Necromanx2Necromanx2 Member Posts: 442
    @Artemius_I, one more thing. In BG2EE, my 10th level Shadow Adept summoned the Shadow Bard. He is invisible. He is there and attacks fine, just no image. Wondering if the fix Grammer Salad put in for Shadow Monsters and Shades has done something?




  • Artemius_IArtemius_I Member Posts: 2,004
    @Necromanx2

    The animation files for the shadow probably don't exist in BG2 yet. I'll add the files in for the update.
  • Necromanx2Necromanx2 Member Posts: 442
    @Artemius_I, I installed the latest build of FnP (0.74g) and now find that new games of Shadow Adepts can memorize mage spells (they are green highlighted instead of the red they used to be).

    That doesn't sound like anything to do with FnP. Did you also install Tome & Blood?

    EDIT - all spells are green, or are Necromancy spells still red?
  • Necromanx2Necromanx2 Member Posts: 442
    edited August 17
    All spells including necromancy are green (went to a merchant and no spell school was red). This is in BG2EE.

    I uninstalled and reinstalled FnP and this mod and I still have the spells that can be memorized.

    I uninstalled FnP and all spell scrolls are now restricted (in red). Since installing 0.74g this has changed. Not sure what FnP release started this as I have not played them all using a Shadow Adept.

    Edit: To me this is not game braking as I just don't use the scrolls. Just wanted to let Artemius_I know that something in FnP is breaking his scroll restrictions.
  • subtledoctorsubtledoctor Member Posts: 7,846
    But... FnP shouldn't touch wizard scrolls, like, at all. This seems to imply we have a COPY_REGEXP run amok somewhere. I'll investigate.

    Are you a pure wizard, or a C/M?
  • Necromanx2Necromanx2 Member Posts: 442
    edited August 17
    Both SA only as well as Thief SA dual class. C/M not allowed in FnP without changing ini (which I don't even know where to look).

    Edit: Dual class C/M not allowed. Have not tried multi-class with SA.

    @subtledoctor, FnP 0.74j fixed the spell scroll issue for my Shadow Adept. They are now all restricted again (red highlighted).
  • Necromanx2Necromanx2 Member Posts: 442
    @Artemius_I, was playing the SA in BG2EE. I notice the Summon Shadows, Wraiths do not have the undead immunities. They were being confused and poisoned.
