    Of course, that was without counting in time for the translation of the Polish language version, but I am in contact with the translator already!

    This is a really big mod from a role playing point of view. Does this mean that Irenicus is basically harmless then since he is locked up and didn't take Imoen?

  • jasteyjastey Member Posts: 1,880
    @lollers Irnicus will not come after the PC or Imoen as long as the game is in chapters 2 and 3, no.
    The original game content kicks back in when the group travels to Brynnlaw: now Imoen gets kidnapped and everything progresses as in the original game.

  • lollerslollers Member Posts: 96
    I have never done that before. Tell people I am hunting for Irenicus rather than helping Imoen. I guess I might find out the difference some day, but not some day this year. I have already scratched my BG itch for this year. This is good motivation for me to figure out how EET works next year maybe.

    Im currently playing BG2 with this mod and Im really loving it so far! Imoen is a badass thief and an excellent mage , and its great to have her around in chapter . The dialogues after each dream scene are great and made Irenicus a bit spookier.
    @jastey I noticed that Byllana's dialogue (the woman at the government district) still mentions Imoen being arrested by the cowled ones.

    @DJKajuru Thanks for your feedback! I am glad you like the feel of the game with I4E.

    I appreciate the report, but I think the mod covers all instances for Lady Brylanna. Which version of the mod are you playing? And is it possible that you installed other questmods or NPC mods before I4E? Some insert new reply options at the top which would make I4E fail to patch the right reply option. I4E should be installed as soon as possible in the install order.

    I believe I've found a missed reference to seeking Imoen. It's during the conversation with Jermien , the wizard in Umar Hills looking for the mimic's blood.

  • jasteyjastey Member Posts: 1,880
    @Tygaran you are right, there are two instances about "saving coin to rescue a friend" I missed so far. Thanks for reporting!

    This is great news! I can't wait to try it. This is the mod I have been waiting for ever since SoD was announced. A real game changer.

  • jasteyjastey Member Posts: 1,880
    Thank you very much @Permidion_Stark !
    Let me know if you encounter problems. And of course I am interested in any and all feedback and criticism!

    Does this mod allow you to recruit and have Imoen in the party during the Candlekeep Prologue?

    @Thels No, (not yet?) That idea actually never came to me.

  • megamike15megamike15 Member Posts: 2,598
    i see no reason why you should. i mean she joins like 5 seconds after leaveing candel keep. unless jastey wants to add interjections for every quest in the tutorial.

  • ThelsThels Member Posts: 1,374
    Well, the Mod is called "Imoen Forever", not "Imoen after the Prologue is done". ;)

    That said, I can understand why that part of the game would not be included.

    First I'd like to thank you @jastey for everything you're doing for thoses games, for the basic players (as me) and for the help/support I think you give to other modders.

    I discovered this mod quite recently and I'm in the middle of a (modded) playthrough, chasing Sarevok in the maze.
    Imoen is in my team and I was wondering if it's possible to install the mod before I start SoD ?

    It would be so cool to be able to get Imoen back so fast :smiley:

    @Adam_en_tium that should be possible, yes. But there is two known bugs in the SoD part of the mod. I was hoping to update it tomorrow with fixes, so maybe it will be worth if you wait for the update.
    Thanks for the kind words!

  • Adam_en_tiumAdam_en_tium Member Posts: 76
    Thanks a lot, I'll wait even more than tomorow if needed.
    I play this game quite slowly anyway :blush:

    And the mod updates to v6!
    The new version comes with bugfixes and a Russian version by Raza, stn & Arcanecoast Team. Thank you very much for the translation!

    Changelog v6:
    - Added Russian version by Raza, stn & Arcanecoast Team
    - Imoen should not die instead of Ophyllis after interjecting into his (last) dialogue
    - Imoen should not loop her "arrival in hell" StringHead line. Her script action should not block the rest of the area script.
    - Imoen's generic kickout dialogue should not block the original dialogue at the and of SoD.
    - typo corrections

    Thanks so much for this mod. It's a real game-changer and it's definitely going to be one of my must-have mods from now on. It worked really well with the NPC stronghold mod because I could roleplay that my NPC knew that she needed to build up a powerbase and a whole network to be powerful enough to confront Irenicus (Imoen and the Shadow Thieves, my cleric PC and the Lathander priests, Keldorn and the order, etc.)

    I noticed a few typos, lines that don't work with the mod or confusing lines that could be re-worded for clarity. I don't know where they are in the dialogue files, I just took photos on my phone as I was playing :sweat_smile: The list is below:
    - Yoshimo says, "This is reason to rejoyce" when Imoen returns, but it should be rejoice
    - Jaheira has an interjection with Aran Linvail when you first meet him saying, "We have friends in need of rescue and vengeance both!" which doesn't really work if Imoen is with you.
    - There is a potential response to Bodhi when you first fight her where the PC can say, "Perhaps they have some sympathy for my plight. The rescue I wish is a worthy cause."
    - The PC can respond in a Spellhold talk: "Just as little as the Bhaal essence would be passed to our children are we brothers and sisters in the physical sense, Imoen." This makes sense, but I think it's a little bit confusing. I had to read it a few times before it clicked (possibly I'm just an idiot).
    - In the same talk, Imoen says, "There must be dozens, if not hendrets" where she should say hundreds
    - I'm not even sure this is from the mod. It might be from IEP friendship mod. "I feel the loss of my soul, ." The punctuation just needs some cleaning up.

    The only other out of place dialogue I saw were related to the NPC stronghold mod. I imagine that any changes would need to be made to that mod, not this one. I'm happy to post something in the relevant forum, if you'd like (although I'm not sure if it's being updated much anymore)

    Thanks again for all your work!

    @energisedcamel thank you very much for the kind words and the feedback!
    All typos were from I4E, the last one was a misspelled token for CHARNAME (and thus not displayed) between the comma and the dot. The instances from Jaheira and the PC reply for Bodhi will be considered in the next version.

    NPC Stronghold mod was recently updated with the compatibility changes (upon other things) by @Cirosan so there is hope any needed content adaptions for compatibility will be integrated, too. I'd be ready to help with that.
