Banter Timing Tweak - Utilizes the new BANTTIMG.2DA file available in BGEE to adjust banter dialog timings. This component replaces Compton's Banter Accelerator script for BGEE. It is not available for Tutu/BGT (Compton's Banter Accelerator remains available for Tutu/BGT). There are five timing options available:
[1] Normal banter timing (~27 minutes between banter dialogs)
[2] Faster banters (Banter dialogs occur ~50% faster)
[3] Very fast banters (Banter dialogs occur twice as fast)
[4] Slower banters (Banter dialogs occur ~50% slower)
[5] Very slow banters (Banter dialogs occur twice as slow)

Download and unzip the archive. Copy the mod files to the directory/folder where the CHITIN.KEY file lives (depends on OS and download version). See the following links for more information on installing on your platform:
