Questions regarding Yves & a complete text documentation of her tales [spoilers]

Postby pooiyx » Wed Jun 18, 2008 3:40 pm

Hi. I have some questions regarding Yves and her tales:


How many tales can Yves share with you in total?

Is there anywhere I can get a complete text documentation of all these tales?

Which of the PCs don't share tales with Yves?
So far from what I've tried, Grace and Ignus don't share tales. Are there any more PCs who don't?

Also, what do I need to do to get enough tales so that I can get Yves to share all her available tales?
Is there anywhere I can get a list/table of requirements which need to be fulfilled, corresponding to each tale to be obtained?


Thanks in advance to anyone who can help me.

I'm going to guess here that you're trying to get the Tattoo that is only available if you hear all her tales.

This is difficult to do because one of the tales you can tell her was bugged - the tale of the Dreambuilder. In the unmodded game, you have exactly one opportunity to tell Yves about it - after you've learned about it, but before you have made -any- progress in getting Xander the parts for it. That's it.

My Fixpack fixes that bug... none of the other mods out there (Platter's Fixpack, Restoration Pack, SKARDAVNELNATE's AIP) do so, at least not yet (SKARDAVNELNATE still updates his AIP, so he may get to it after the writing of this post).

Well I have just completed the game for the 1st time and I didn't know that you could get a tattoo for listening to all of Yves's tales.

This tattoo is not the reason I want to hear all her tales though. I just want to read more tales as I'm the type of player who likes doing as many side quests as possible and experiencing as much of the game as possible.

In fact, I realised now that the game only remembers the tales Yves has told you (which are accessed through dialog options with her). What the game doesn't record for the player is the tales which your companions have shared with her. Any documentation of those tales would be great too and would be much appreciated.

Anyway, thanks for the info and I'll try using your fixpack when I next play through the game.

If you really want the complete deal, you should download a tool like Near Infinity, then use it to decompile/export Yves's dialogue file, which is DYVES.DLG. Export/decompile it to a .D file, and you should be able to read them all for yourself.

If you have weidu downloaded, you can use that too. Just make sure weidu.exe is in your planescape directory, then go to a DOS command prompt, be in that directory, and type "weidu DYVES.DLG", and it'll create DYVES.D for you.
