Playing other modules like Prisoners of the Mist
« on: June 01, 2017, 01:12:53 AM »
I exported Iridni to use her in another module. Her portrait is okay but she's missing her head and her arms and legs look like they're covered in plastic bags. Her inventory has a lot of red x's and otherwise monkey business.

When I look at her feats, things are even stranger. She has text that in the description that doesn't even go with the feat. It's like area description text!

Since I can play POTM, I know I have the right haks and overrides in the right place because everything is peachy on here :)

How do I get the other module to pick up appearances from here? Is it even possible?

Hi! No.

Haks have to be loaded into a module before they're unpacked and used. Having them sit in your hak folder isn't enough.

What you want to do is fire up the toolset, find the hak load order list that's buried somewhere on the forums.. and add those haks to your chosen module.

Looks about right. You'll also have to use Ravenloft.tlk as the tlk file!

Keep in mind that many abilities rely on scripts, which aren't in the haks so not everything will function as on POTM.

*nod nod*

I don't expect the other module to operate exactly like POTM, but I can finally play her as a DIvine Champion and it at least *look* like her :)

Hmm. It crashes whenever I try to load a saved game.

But!! I'll persist :)
