applying this patch, the party will no longer be stuck at the small
teeth pass when Jaheira is in the party. One must re-load an earlier
save when the party has not been in the Small Teeth Pass before If the
problem has already occurred and you are stuck in the area, use
CLUAConsole to leave the area...or reload.
The Shadows of Amn version of the romance I
know that some of you don't have TOB, and therefore I am looking
forward to releasing a SOA version. I was thinking, why does NR require
TOB. The answer is that it uses one visual effect and dialog.tlk taken
from TOB with the official patch applied. The visual effect bam can
easily downloaded, and the dialog.tlk should cause no problems in SOA,
I think. The string references of the SOA part are the same and
therefore it SHOULD work. That is why I uploaded the required BAM and I
hope that someone with SOA is willing to try this out. I can give no
guarantee that it will work, but at the same I see no reason why it
shouldn't work... Copy the file to your "override" directory.
While you're downloading, please make yourself familiar with the readme:

I - introduction
romance is the conclusion of my hard work, which began in the beginning
of september and finished on December 26th. It contains a complete
romance with Nalia, including the tree of life dialogs, beloved one in
danger, Nalia's abduction by bodhi, and other love related quests. It
also adds some new quests and character interactions. I strongly
recommend having Minsc in the party...
II - installing.
may want to back up your old BGII configuration first, should you
desire to uninstall the mod. To do that, make a backup of your
"override" folder and copy a file named "dialog.tlk" to some place. The
installer overwrites "dialog.tlk", nullifying any custom items you may
had. Of course, you can re-install them, but AFTER installing the mod.
The installation procedure is simple: enter the path of your BGII
installation folder to the field named "/your bgII install dir./" and
press "unzip".You can also run winzip, but one should know that the
files have to be extracted to the BGII installation folder, NOT to the
override folder. Another important thing is that the romance
REQUIRES Throne of Bhaal! It uses some of it's resources(namely the
visual effects) and the dialog.tlk file is taken from TOB. The official
patch should also be applied prior to installing the mod.
III - special notes
I must give a little bit of information about the romance, without
spoiling anything. The player has to be a male character with at least
of 8 charisma. He also has to be of fighter pool, which include
figthers, paladins, rangers, barbarians and monks. Available races are
human, half-elf, elf and halfing. The romance consists of 3 independet
branches, where 2 of them are connected with the De'Arnise keep's
quests. One of them, however, is connected with the slaver quest, and
Nalia has to be in the party when clearing out the slavers' ship.
Another enchancement of the mod is that Captain Arat stays at the keep
after retiring. He can be found at the the forge which assembles the
Flail of Ages. He serves as a blacksmith and sells weaponry.
IV - my thanks goes to these persons:
romance wouldn't have been possible if those people hadn't helped me. I
received many good suggestions during the dvelopment period, and I'm
trying to mention those persons, who's ideas wereimplemented.
First of all, I'd like to dedicate this MOD to the Baldur's Gate
series' development team, who did a superb job by bringing us this
great game. I hope that someone from Bioware is reading this...
Now some names(in random order):
Demircan - his dialog suggestions were superb, especially regarding to
the "helping the unfortunate" topic. Great work, Kozzy!
Will Kemp - hi's idea about the name of Nalia's youth love is used. And
the youth love has quite an important role in this romance...really!
Lee Watts - thank you for your Edwin's interaction!
Brian M. Stoney - I simply loved his Jan Jansen's turnip story abut the wedding :)
Lemony Doom, a.k.a. Tanthalas - thanks for your Aerie's, Korgan's, Minsc's and Viconia's comment about the wedding.
Kevin Dorner - good suggestion about Viconia's comment and the youth love plot.
firstname.lastname@example.org - thank you for your wedding ceremony dialog.
probably some more people, who's name I was unable to recall. If
someones knows that he or she had a great deal in making the romance,
please let me know, and I'll add your name to the list.
V - tech support
though I have throughly tested the mod throughout the development
period and I even made one runthru, I cannot guarantee that it's
flawless. If you find a bug or are experiencing problems, please drop
me a line on email.
