Originally posted by fable I vaguely recall some quote from Shaw's play, The Devil's Disciple, to the effect of "That's the sweet thing about good. The higher you go, the easier it is to fall." I suspect (just my opinion--nothing to back this up) that the Bioware devs decided to factor in alignment...

Uh, you'll need a tool to browse through the game resources, like NearInfinity. Sorry I can't give the link right now as I am a bit in a hurry. Anyway if you don't know where to start from I suggest you to search for some WeiDU-installable kits, I'm sure there's something like a Death Knight somewhe...

@Mini Me: there's no problem, for now testers are enough.
I can add you later, if you are still interested.
There's still work to do to complete the BETA, so.. :)

@AC: replying via PM ;)

It's no problem for a woman with too much time on her hands. It's always a pleasure, Littiz. Ah, women get an easier life, I always say p) No need for a custom party, you may use official or unofficial NPCs. Currently we miss some new HLAs and tables for 3 or 4 specialist mages and Stalkers, so Val...

If it's not in the override it means that it has not been modified yet. You'll have to extract it and put it in yourself :)

Be warned that there are a lot of files to modify if you want to install a kit manually ;)

Thanx AC!
I appreciate it. :)

What party would you use?
You know, some classes are ready and deserve to be tried (druids, especially Shapeshifters, should be a lot of fun) other classes are, ehm, still a mess (wizards, ehm, too many of them! :D )
I can try to adjust things in time, if needed :)

Thanx Harbinger, I've noticed you have applied :)

I can also suggest to keep an eye on RtW, for when the team will need testers again. Even though timings with that one are always a mistery, testing it will be surely fun ;)

Call for BETA testers!

We're somewhat close to the release of Refinements (Version 1), so we'd need testers in a couple of weeks, or three at most. If we don't find enough of them, we'll have to release the mod as buggy as it is! () Seriously, 2 or 3 have applied so far, if we find 1 or 2 more they'll surely suffice. If s...

hhmm..Don't know if I can do anything about that glitch, the way songs' effects are applied seems hard-coded.. I should be able to create that new "projectile", to raise the range. I have still some doubts about balance though: enhanced songs are very powerful, and if they affect all of your allies,...

Hmm, I'd like to fix these problems in Refinements, if I get a global picture about how all songs should work. So I could fix them all in a coherent way, including the kit versions of the new HLAs table. For bards we're using most of the new abilities made by aVENGER (with permission ), but we've al...

Well, I just started a new game with the Virtue Mod installed. Any great things youd like to point out by any chance?? ehm, no! I really have no time to play at all. I just consider it one of the most needed refinements to the game, and I also consider it a great piece of "smart" coding. Even the k...

I've recently enrolled as an additional/humble co-helper/co-coder for RtW, so I had the chance to be *impressed* by the work of these guys. Surely, they've been slow, but wait to see the mod. (I think Xyx is right in calling it The mod...) hmm, @Xyx, frankly from Quitch's reports it seemed to me the...

Littiz would know better than me, but I understand at least one mod replaces Spell Shield with a (buggier) version of its own. I was wrong, it's just that a few mods use Detectable Spells, and Detectable Spells modifies as necessary even that one, which was already buggy on its own. It usually work...

The game is buggy but not so buggy.. In my experience, all the spells of that category work fine, with the exception of Spell Shield, but there are many sources of possible confusion. For example, Spell Trap can be removed only by a few spells (Ruby, Pierce Shield and Spellstrike IIRC). Spell Immuni...

have you USED pierce magic, pierce shield on a smarmy lich and did it work??? No, I'm taking your word that it doesn't. If it doesn't work, then it's cheese (maybe built-in), since relatively to the spell system it should work. Or maybe, they just have a Spell Shield active! Which, actually is alte...

@User: try casting Secret Word on a character (not the same caster) with SI:Abjuration and see. If Pierce Magic doesn't work on liches (it has no reasons not to work) then it means Weimer made them immune to it (actually I think it's likely, being even a damn easy thing to do ) and you can't true si...
