Equipment duplication and grayed out equipment screen
« on: August 15, 2015, 09:25:36 AM »
Hi!  So I've been playing on steam which I assume is patched to the latest version, and my equipment has been duplicating.  I don't consider that an unpleasant bug since I've been able to save money on boots and bandages, but I'm at the Coria Dog Bar level and I think that Gavrielle's equipment got too overfilled and now her equipment screen is just a big gray bar when I click on her.  Her equipment can't be accessed in the battle either.

I'm using the unbreakable weapons mod if that changes anything.

Hey there, I'm the guy who made the unbreakable weapons mod.  I don't think it should be causing any issues, as small as it is, but I can take a look and make sure it's on-par with the latest release of the game. (The only thing that might create any issues involves the file getting replaced in a patch, but even that shouldn't theoretically break the game this far.)

In the meantime, using a text editor, open up and look at the save file: are there multiple entries of Gavrielle?  If so, there's part of your problem; you're going to want to delete the duplicate entries.  If not, you can open look at and remove items from her inventory.  All information relating to an item is delimited by a double bar. (  ||  )  Deleting a strip of information from between these will remove that item from her inventory; for example:
Code: [Select]
<Inv>Practice Sword,Weapon Hand,c:Swordsman:Fencer:Hero:Champion,,,Sword,15,25,0,0,0,0,0,0,-1,0,0,0,0,0,0,0,0,0,0,0,0,20,0,10,,Sword Wooden,Flimsy practice sword. Strength -1.||Bandages,triggered,,,,,2,16,12,0,0,0,0,0,0,0,0,0,0,0,0,0,0,0,0,0,0,0,0,20,,Bandages,Restores 12 health.</Inv>
If I wanted to remove the practice sword from this character's inventory, I'd delete this:
Code: [Select]
Practice Sword,Weapon Hand,c:Swordsman:Fencer:Hero:Champion,,,Sword,15,25,0,0,0,0,0,0,-1,0,0,0,0,0,0,0,0,0,0,0,0,20,0,10,,Sword Wooden,Flimsy practice sword. Strength -1.||
which would leave me with just
Code: [Select]
<Inv>Bandages,triggered,,,,,2,16,12,0,0,0,0,0,0,0,0,0,0,0,0,0,0,0,0,0,0,0,0,20,,Bandages,Restores 12 health.</Inv>

If that doesn't help with your problem until Craig can swoop in and prevent it from happening again, I don't understand things as well as I thought I did.

Thanks for the help!  Also, I really appreciate your mod, for me at least it makes the game more fun!

So, there are multiple entries for Gavrielle.  I have her character data three times: as character 1 out of 29, 23 out of 29, and 24 out of 29.  So presumably I should only keep her as character 1, but should I also delete the total number of characters down to 27 when I delete her two extra entries.

For example, looking at out favorite axe lady, "<CharacterData>    Madeleine Strongarm ( 24 / 29 )"  Should I change her numbers to (22 / 27)?  I'm not sure whether changing her numbers would create or prevent further problems.

Edit:  I tried that, as well as deleting some of Gavrielle's extra equipment (there was a LARGE surplus) and it worked(at least for now).  Thanks!!!

Glad i could help!  Yeah, multiple character entries have been an issue I've seen crop up more frequently as of late. More bugs in the save system, I guess!
