  • Re: [solved] How can a mod detect LoB?

    It looks kinda like you want to detect this for script writing.

    I believe this will return true if it is on:
    IF
    NightmareModeOn()
    and this will return true if it is off:
    IF
    !NightmareModeOn()
    For example:
    IF
    Global("ACH_LORD_OF","GLOBAL",0)
    Global("bd_ach_difficulty","global",2)
    AreaCheck("AR0125")
    Dead("Sarevok") // Armored Figure
    NightmareModeOn()
    THEN
    RESPONSE #100
    SetGlobal("ACH_LORD_OF","GLOBAL",1)
    END
    This is the block of script from ACHIEVEM.BCS that gives the achievement for beating BG1 on LoB difficulty.

    Edit: Ninja'd again.

    True, but I liken this more to bouncing the ball off the ceiling and getting the basket. Clearly requires skill, but it is against the rules. Anyway, I digress...

    There are some things Hexxat can die from (illithids, death spells) that will interfere with her regeneration script. In these cases, she will never be able to regenerate on her own and you actually NEED to resurrect her with magic for her to come back. However, if you use Raise Dead she will only have 1hp when she comes back and her script will make her die again, but this time she will actually regenerate on her own.

  • Re: Hexxat dies after resurrection

    There are some things I noticed Hexxat can die from (illithids, death spells) that do not trigger her regeneration script so she will never come back on her own. Casting Resurrection or Raise Dead or similar on her in these cases can actually give the script a kick and allow her to start regenerating and come back.

    Some things are obviously dubious, like Violet Potion in the regular game sticks your DEX to 3, no matter what, while there (s)he runs around with 24 DEX still.
    She probably drank the Violet potion and then drank a bunch of potions of Agility/Mind Focusing to restore the lost DEX.

    Confronting Tranzig or joining a bandit group is not the only way to learn the location of the bandit camp. During chapter 3 a group of bandits will appear next to the ruined caravan in the area between Beregost and the Friendly Arm Inn. If you kill all of the bandits except for their leader, Deke, he will surrender. You can then persuade him to reveal the location of the camp if your reaction or strength is high enough. Deke will also reveal the location if you charm him and talk to him.
