Woke up this morining to find that my email account had been hacked. Then it turned out that Yahoo's automated support won't recover your account if the hacker changed your recovery information. Then I found out that Yahoo does not have live support. Then Yahoo's forum moderators informed me that Yahoo does not delete accounts if they are active even once withinh 12 months. Even if they are hacked. Yahoo is extremely negligent and don't give them any business.

      AD&D Bard? That was, start as fighter, switch to Thief, then to Druid, which was the Bard class.

      Agree! Easy ways to have druid multiclass has been on my dreamlist for a long time (and with kits), especially druid/mage (stoneskin/ironskins combo?) and druid/thief (Backstabbing greater werewolf shenanigans?).

      AD&D Bard has been my pipedream for these games for awhile now.

      A Druid who can set traps as well as a thief can would be lovely.
  • Why does SCS take so long to install?! It single-handedly took me from a 20 min mod install to about 3hrs.

      I guess it's because there're tons of files it overwrites.

      Deadfire patches also take very long to get installed, probably because of the same reason.

      Upadate: Its been over 15 hours, I'm pulling the plug on it and doing my normal 20 min install. I don't care how good SCS is, its not worth delaying my gameing by 2 days to install.

      Are you installing through the SCS installer, or BWS?
    • Zaghoul

      Huh, that does sound way off. Granted I just started using it recently but an uninstall to readjust it, followed by a full weidu install yesterday of SCS took maybe 30 min or so (I think -my sense of time is not average). It was interesting to see it working on one creature code after another, one by one, and there were 'lots' of them.

      Do you have antivirus? Anti-malware program?
    • ThacoBell

      Its green lighted and never triggers on my mods. Apparently using certain mods that alters scripting can MASSIVELY slow down an SCS install.
    • JuliusBorisov

      Strange, it installs in less than 20 mins on my old XP machine.
    • Rik_Kirtaniya
      Rik_Kirtaniya
      How about installing SCS first and then installing the scripting-altering mods?
    • ThacoBell
      ThacoBell
      They MASSIVELY change how classes work and what abilities they have, enemies would all be completely broken, with no abilities or proficiencies. I suspect, at least.

      I'm 90% sure it was this one, "How long will you stay transformed Vaga? What of when Ixion notices your absense? I'm against this, and will be no part of it."
    • Skatan
      Skatan
      Let's hope this doesn't rub off now then so that when/if Vaga actually do transform, it'll be some weird Wild Magic involved.

      Quite blasphemous. Give Powerslave (the album) a try, I don't think you'll regret it.

  • So, uh, holy crap. SCS is taking as long to install as the rest of my mods combined.

      On an EET install I actually have to install the mod components separately - as in, close the WeiDU setup midway and start again from where I left off - or else I get an out of memory error if I try to install all components at once due to the amount of files that need patching and then the whole game breaks.
    • ThacoBell

      Oh dang, did I get lucky?
  • Had an ambush hit me that I've never seen before. Heading to the FAI for the first time from the map immediately south of it and hit an ambush flanked by two half ogres! That was quite a surprise. Good thing my Shaman's entangle, followed by summoned spirits made this surprise much less dangerous than it could have been.

      Indeed. Sigh, I guess that's a modding pipe dream.
    • Rik_Kirtaniya
      Rik_Kirtaniya
      The weapon animations are stored in separate BAM files, and by some mysterious manner they are coalesced together in game. I use NearInfinity to make these monster GIFs, but I don't think it's possible to merge multiple files using it. :(
