Installed a few mods - items not displaying

bootzbootz Member Posts: 9
So I installed a few mods:

Scales of Balance
Golem Construction
CDTweaks

I am running IWDEE through from Gog.

I have been noticing when I kill certain creatures (mostly trash mobs), they have "invisible" items I can pick up as their loot. When I scroll over them in the inventory, the simple display as "Personal Item." (with no display/picture/icon)

In EE Keeper, they display as the following item codes:
A7!RDBD5
A7!RDBO1

Anyone have any idea? Has anyone heard of this?

    @bootz These items are from the Golem Construction mod. However, it should be impossible to get these items at all since they are simply placeholders for randomized items.

    Maybe there is a conflict with one of the other mods you have mentioned. Can you look in the override folder of the game for a file called "rndtres.2da"? Please zip and attach it so that I can take a look.

    @bootz It looks like the required table entries are missing in your game. I have attached a modified version that should hopefully fix this issue. Unpack the content of "rndtres-fixed.zip" it into the override folder of your game.

    To find out which mods have modified this file could you please unpack the other attached file (changelog-rndtres.zip) into the game's root folder and run "changelog-rndtres.cmd"? It should produce a text file "rndtres-output.txt" with the desired information. Please attach the text file or post the content. You can delete both files "changelog-rndtres.cmd" and "rndtres-output.txt" afterwards.

    Interestingly enough, this did not appear to have fixed much. There are still no item icons and worse, not it says these items "can not be removed" from my inventory. Doh!

    Thank you.

    Calling @subtledoctor who might be able to shed some light on this matter.

    This might be a side effect of the item in question now being recognised as a placeholder. You can probably remove these items from the inventory via EE Keeper.

    Do you know off the top of your head which items these two codes "should" be representing?

  • argent77argent77 Member Posts: 2,787
    A7!RDBD5 has a 10% chance to turn into "Body Parts" (A7!BODY), and A7!RDBO1 has a 25% chance to turn into "Pile of Bones" (A7!BONE).

    Step 1, don't pick up items that don't appear to be normal, useful items.

    Step 2, fix your install order:
    - Golem Construction
    - CDTweaks
    - Scales of Balance

    Step 3, uh, it appears there might be a conflict between SoB and GC. Maybe? SoB's "IWD-specific item tweaks" oevrwrites rndtres.2da. If GC relies on that file, there could be a problem. So maybe when GC is installed later, it encounters a version of that file that is different than it expects, and some of the items get screwy? I really dunno.

    Best bet is to simply not install both Golem Construction and SoB IWD Item Tweaks together. OR, even better, open ~scales_of_balance/components/104_IWO_IWDEE.tpa, and add a double-slash ("//") in front of line 24. Then install both mods.

    That's interesting because I have some of both of those items. Perhaps those were specifically placed as opposed to the random generator?
