Hotfix Mod / Aranna Legacy Mod

I hope nobody has something against when i'm opening here a thread about the Hotfix Mod resp. Aranna Legacy Mod, but GPG's garage forum has widely lost its clearness and reliability due the flood of spam there.
Sad

So this thread here is rather intended to catch (rescue?) all GPG 'fugitives' than to start a new modding offensive. So many years have passed since the game was released and personal priorities have changed since then partially too - however, for the time being smaller bugs or lacks (probably) still will be fixed.

 

Mod download:

Hotfix Mod, Beta 5p (22.3MB, for DS2 base version, ReadMe)

Aranna Legacy Mod, Alpha 4a (25.5MB, for DS2 Broken World addon, ReadMe)
 

Note maybe:
- The Aranna Legacy mod is basically the same as the Hotfix mod, but the Aranna Legacy mod
  contains some additional fixes and tunings specially for the Broken World addon (v2.3/BW).
- If you don't like to read the entire ReadMe file right now, there's also a shorter overview online.

I really like your mod and it is well done!
I think I have found a bug. Sometimes the autocast of a Melee Character is not working and the Melee Fighter is stuck and doing nothing. This only happens under special conditions. This conditions are: You are in Mirrormode, You have selected an ranger, you hold right click on an enemy. The Fighter wants to cast an autospell like heal.
I have also installed the DS1 legendary mod, but no other mods.

Hi,

in multiplayer, if I want to change the difficulty or any game-changing value in the .ini file, do all players have to add the line in the .ini file, or is it enough if only the host adds it?

Thanks in advance, I love your mod Smile

@Redcast: For difficulty+story subjects only the host's settings count. Visual or cursor/selection related options can be different in theory between host and client(s) - but you have to be careful here a bit, unfortunately multiplayer support never has been tested until the end.
Shock

I tried the link as mentioned but comes out Error 410 : Gone =p
Really would love to try the mod, any other mirror sites to get this file?
Just bought the game at Gog.com, it says version 2.3, do not have Broken WOrld. Which one should i dl and use?

Thks in advance

@Sirana: Please retry. I am not familiar so far with the distribuition from GoG. Since the addon content is not part of it(?) probably the game is a revised v2.2 tuned for online sellers.
Hence try the Hotfix mod first, in case if problems/warnings the Aranna Legacy mod instead.

Unfortunatey I am not able to give you a better advice. There are some mod-internal checks though, but I am not sure if such a version-/content-mixed situation can be detected appropriately at the moment.
It would be a good idea to restart your gaming session after you have reached Eirulan, so you can see all/more check data (that you may miss at the tutorial start due to the intro scene).

Thks for the advice, im just going to restart a new game using the mod.
Edit: managed to get the file, going to try it for a few hours and see wat happen =p
Thks!

So any fixes or workarounds to make mods work on the Steam edition of DS2 will likely apply to the GoG one too?

Well, perhaps.

Mods may widely work (a bit more risky though if they use flick/skirt).
But what about All*Saves? - Is there any version (still) working...!? Shock

Have been trying the Hotfix mod on gog.com 2.3 version, working fine so far, just finish act 1 with no issue.

And thks for the mod! enjoying it alot !
