Notes on PnP protection items

Protection item exclusion/conflict is a quite annoying feature in BG games. It takes its roots in D&D rules, however it's implemented badly. Tweaks Anthology provides a component to wear multiple protection items with PnP restrictions: saving throws bonuses stack, armor class bonuses don't. However,...

Re: Translation hints error - Region of Terror BG2 mod

Ohh, never thought this way... It seems many, so many modifications would fail during the installation on Linux because of this Exactly. Nevertheless, I'm OK to restrict the behavior to Linux, but it could still support uppercase on Windows, the same way as WeiDU does. What good would that do? Mods...

Even on Linux, if a file is uppercased it will work
It won't. So it is actually quite helpful to Linux users.

Re: Translation hints error - Region of Terror BG2 mod

It's likely not hard to change, but I see no reason to do that. Like I mentioned, because of fs case sensitivity on Linux using lowercase is a better practice. And if some modifications are mixing case, they probably should stop doing that?

Re: Translation hints error - Region of Terror BG2 mod

In last commit, only filename in tag is lowercased, file itself has the same name. Looks like that won't work on windows after all.

Re: Translation hints error - Region of Terror BG2 mod

Right, so it only supports lowercase names. If you rename SETUP.TRA to setup.tra and put that into the tag, it'll work. I could make it case insensitive, but I don't think it's a good practice. Linux friendly builds should be lowercased anyway. In fact, on windows it'll probably work if you lowercas...

Version 2

When it was first released, MLS was just a proof on concept, barely enough to be useful. It received some extra features later, but mostly the development was limited to minor bug fixes. Now it's finally getting some meat on its bare bones. It's not super smart yet, but version 2 does introduce some...

Validate / parse / compile

validate-settings.png First option will try to compile/parse your file each time you make a change, like many extensions for other languages do. However, parsing in this case is performed by external programs (compile.exe, weidu), so that requires a (temporary) file to be present on disk. It can be...
