I've found that it overwrites the initial dialogue of the cook, who, btw, actually provides information about one of the begining quests. I'm not a programmer nor a scripter and one glance nearly fried my brain... but I think if it was moved to another non-essencial NPC (like a guard?) it'd be better ....

The problem is that it has to be a character that already has dialog. If there was an editor then it would be simpler to switch NPC's like that. I have't done much in A4, I'm waiting for version 2, but if a person compared them side by side it might be easy to put back the missing components.

Absent that, tack back on the bits about the quest.

2 minute edit with the cook having the original conversation strings and the editor ones. Hope it works correctly.

[Edit]: Meh, forgot about the 8 convo limit. Any suggestions?
[Edit2]: Reuploaded file. Think I got it now.

The new trainer editor is better than this one as it mucked up the metal bar quest for some reason

"_She gives you seeking rapiers heartstring bows and magi robes with deadeye cloaks._"; a list of the items she actually gives, for those who are curious and don't want to try it to find out...

NOTE: Not in order of appearance, but in ammounts...
*Takes a very deep breath and uses his best Jim Carrey voice*
5x Healing Elixer, Curing Elixer, Speed Elixer, Energy Elixer, Armor Elixer, Restoration Elixer, Invulnerable Elixer, Knowledge Elixer, and Knowledge Brew
4x Flaming Sword, Blessed Bracers, Quicksilver Sandals, Girdle of Nibleness, Mica Band, Gloves of the Hammer, Wisdowm Crystal, Runed Helm, Radient Vambraces, Gold Necklace, Cap of Farsight, Explorer's Ring, and Eliavari's Bow
3x Mercurial Plate
1x Sniper's Vest

And a partridge in a pear tree...
(Couldn't resist...)

...Ok, I sortof lied about not knowing how to script. The fixed script that PDN (two posts away) was in a format that didn't boggle my brain. For some reason, NotePad (don't have wordpad, Bob decided to eat that program for dinner) decided to put it all on one line..the file I downloaded was in a format I could understand..

So now, I'm gonna tinker a bit and see what items I can come up with unless someones beat me to it...

I think there should be a way to do an extension topic line that should increase the ammount of usage? Sortof like the sign in GF3 ....?

How exactly does this work? All I see is a .txt file.

Goto the directory you installed Avernum 4 on (Default: C:\Program Files\Avernum 4\) and goto Data\Scripts. Make a backup copy of z60monasterdlg.txt and then place the new downloadable file into that directory, overwriting (As you have a backup copy, it's not a concern). Then, in Fort Monastery, goto the kitchen and talk to Bodri.

I'm learning the script pattern and I may have a bit of a better 'fix' - correcting typo's and misc errors that I found. (such as it saying specific eq when it doesn't give it) ...I may make an alteration to Peter to extend the list of options available (Soon as I figure that out...AFTER making a list of 00-500 items..)

To be more exact, I'm making a document to be posted at GameFAQ's (and wherever else) of item values in this format:

VAL ITEM
01 Copper Coins (5)
02 Silver Coins (20)
03 Gold Coins (50)
04 Emerald
05 Flawed Crystal
06 Lovely Crystal
07 Beautiful Crystal
08 Unused
not this confusing format:
begindefineitem 474;
import = 171;
it_name = "Leaden Band";
it_value = 2000;
it_graphic_coloradj = 16;
it_protection = 8;
it_stats_to_affect 0 = 202;
it_stats_addition 0 = -3;
it_stats_to_affect 1 = 211;
it_stats_addition 1 = 10;
it_stats_to_affect 2 = 204;
it_stats_addition 2 = 2;
...I know, I'm giving myself a painful ammount of work but I've been bored lately and needed something to do other then twiddle my thumbs.

There's got to be an automated way to do that, since it's really simply organized. Aran (or many other people) could probably write some script to parse that data out of the file.

However, if you enjoy hours of mindless labor, go right ahead. I won't stop you. :)

I worked the State Fair of Illanois and Texas. Hours of Mindless Labor is nothin compared to THAT horror. But it's also giving me a bit more of an insight to the script functions. And since I'm already more then half-way (item 251 now) I'm a bit dedicated.
