Merge Pack 2022-08-30 (mega)- nomedia, use with Media 2021 archive.

[*] Fixed Item:Randomize() and Item:InitSpecial() function (props to eksekk)
[*] Fixed crash when player casted Dispel Magic
[*] Fixed crashes when monster casted Spirit Lash (Inferno and Prismatic Light were potentially affected as well) - spell were fixed in MM8Patch 2.5 and old (and incorrect) Merge attempt to fix them became a problem
[*] Fixed Shiled party spell buff - now Shiled spell should actually affect incoming missiles
[*] Fixed Fire Spikes amount - player was allowed to cast the spell one extra time
[*] Fixed QBits of generated party members - no more troll in Adv. inn
[*] Fixed RosterBitIndex field of generated characters - can't tell if this has any actual effect
[*] Fixed monsters Day of Protection buff (props to eksekk again)
[*] Restored functionality of MMExtension quests (quest logs) and autonotes auto-indexing - so examples from MMExtension manual (and similar user quests) work again
[*] Fixed evt TotalCircusPrize variable
[*] Added evt HasNPCProfession and DaysCounterN variables (from MM6 events)
[*] Store Counters and DaysCounters evt variables per continent - previously MM7 and MM8 events could use the same variable
[*] Restored evt CounterN functionality - affected most of the long-timed events in MM7 and MM8
[*] Fixed and disabled previously non-worked original Dragon Tower events (Rodril has written special events for Towers years ago but didn't remove original ones)
[*] Fixed Player(4) [fifth party member] used instead of Current Player in MM6 and MM7 events
[*] Fixed PlayerBits overlap between MM6 and MM7 events - affects wells
[*] Chest with Trumpet now will be visible after map refill - previously it became invisible, blocking MM7 progress
[*] Incorporated most events fixes from MM8Patch since version 2.2 - excluding Cauri and Juggernauts

Can anyone tell me if anyone else has the wrong class names? For example the class with the skills of the thief is called dark dragon. Maybe I made a mistake at some point in the installation but I want to check it before making another change.

As you might have guessed, it's not 100% reproducible (for example, I've cleared Lair twice without crashes). So you didn't provided some crucial detail.
Luckily, there was another report which was reproducible. Commit 5ff7fe43.
Ahh, it was due to them trying to use Spirit Lash on me. Thanks for the fix.

It's Base (aka 'rodril'). One can set up either (NOT both) Fixes ('rodril-fixes') or Revamp ('master') on top of it following installation instruction.

Not sure if is the right place to post it, but I noticed an odd bug earlier today in the Blackshire alchemist shop when using the latest patch.

It was the first time I traveled to Blackshire in this save, the first time I entered the shop everything was fine. But then I reloaded to a bit earlier to see if I could get better potion options, only to find the entire shop empty and a message to check back in 24 hours. I never even purchased anything at the shop in the first place.

I had previously played through the entire game with an earlier version of the patch, and I never encountered this issue before in any other shop.

Hello friends,

Thank you very much for your great job with Merge Mod.

But I have very big request to you (sorry for my bad English). Maybe I am the only one player in the world, but the main benefit of Merge Mod was for me a totaly full journal. In Merge Mod I expected all the awards, bonuses, obelisks, wells and fountains, just everything in one big encyclopedy. And full list of Awards completed from all three games (MM6, MM7 and MM8). But after completing first three maps from MM8 (Dagger Islands, Ravenshore and Alvar) and Emerald Island from MM7 and completing absolutely all the quests in these regions, I have only 3 completing quests in Awards (Finding missing persons on Emerald Island, Stopping Yellow Fever and Finding Rothnax), 5 Arcomage Wins and Collecting 4.500 in Bounties.

There are some completing quests in Journal - Miscellaneous (Finding Power Stone for Frederick Talimere, Killing all the Ogres in Alvar and Arcomage Wins in concrete pubs, Guild memberships)

But most of the completing quests is not recorded at all. The Seer advices from MM8 are not recorded in Journal too, unfortunately.

So, could you fix it, as it was in originally game, please? I want to have all the completed quests in my Awards screen, it's the main reason to play Merge Mod for me. I like to look at full list of my awards, my completed quests. I know - Winning Arcomage in concrete pubs or Guild Memberships are OK in Journal - Miscellaneous, I think, it is good idea from you. Because it's not so important for conrete Arcomage Wins or Guild Memberships to be in Awards, but all completed main and side quests definitely yes. As it was in originally MM8.

So, could you fix Awards screen for completed quests, please?

Reporting a bug. I have the merge mod installed on my Steam Deck, plays fantastically! The only issue I am running into is that Turn Based mode fails to ever work/trigger. I can map "Enter"/"Return" to any key/button on the Deck, or change the key in game to any key and map accordingly, and it will not work. Appears to be a bug with the mod. Regardless of which continent I start, what characters, or button mapping, the game will not enter turn based mode unfortunately. Any ideas or things I can try to test out to fix this? Thank you!

Hello!
Could you help me?
I already went through parts 6,7 and 8, through this mod, but on patch 2.4.1. Now I decided to replay, and put the latest patch. I don’t know if this is related to the patch or something else, but when I press the attack button (it doesn’t matter how, through the button on the keyboard or through the mouse 1), the game crashes. How to fix it?

PS: When I returned the MMPatch 2.4.1 patch again - everything worked! But how to play with the new patch?

Have you also updated Merge to the latest version? If not, do so.

No, I tried it now, it seems to work, but I'm not sure that everything was installed with me, and the old version was not left. How can I see the version of the mods?

Open console with ctrl + f1, paste

Code: Select all

Merge.Version
and press ctrl + enter. You'll get back installed pack date in form YYYYMMDD, as well as fork name if you used one (revamp for example).

On Dagger Wound Island where later in the story there is a pirate post, there is a pointed stone, by clicking on it the witch's body appears and there you can revive her for the mission
Ok, but nothing happens then I clicking on it. I tried it with Necromancer in my team and without. Or should I have Sorcerer to complete the quest?
The witch's corpse should appear. It should be reanimated (with the spell "Reanimate") and lead her to Avershara.
I'm at that spot, and I see the mentioned pointy rock, but clicking it does nothing. Does the witch corpse not show up until you get to the part of the story where the pirate post is there?

I seem to recall there was a dead peasant there at one point, but it didn't say anything about a witch or prophetess, just "peasant" and it's gone now.

Version 20220830. Apparently the most recent.
The problem is that I went through the old version, without any bugs at all. And in this version, then one problem, then another.
Either crashes from the game when I just walk around the world map, then there are either sooooo long moves of monsters during a tactical battle, or even endless ones. How can this be fixed?
