Reign of Virtue - FAQ

1.) What is Reign of Virtue?

  • 3 Completely New Stores with Totally Original New Items
  • 5 New Encounters using new scripts, items, sounds and other nicities

2.) How do I Install Reign of Virtue?

You can automatically install it using the EXE program provided that will automatically add strings to your dialog.tlk without damaging other installed mods. Please make sure you have extracted it from the ZIP file before attempting to run the EXE.

If you get any "IAP Error 2" error messages from the EXE (after making sure you have extracted it from the ZIP file) then I suggest that you utilise the "Extract IAP" button from the installer. Then you will need IEEP or IEES from TeamBG to utilise the IAP file, and install it from there.

3.) Does Reign of Virtue have any new areas?

Like Freedom's Reign, Reign of Virtue does *not* have new areas, but integrates fully with the expansion pack, Throne of Bhaal. Adding new Creatures and Stores throughout the expansion.

4.) Do I have to start a new game?

I recommend that you start a new game of ToB to make sure you get the full experience of the new items and stores i have made available. However, it is not strictly necessary to do this, but you will likely miss a lot of the new encounters. Utilising one of your saves from SoA (namely the final save), might also be very useful, and will provide you with a full party with which to take on some of the encounters prestened in Reign of Virtue.

5.) Can I uninstall Reign of Virtue?

You can indeed. With your installation package, I have included a list of all the files i have added for the modification. This means you can easily delete them from your override folder. To make it even easier, you should backup your override folder before installing Reign of Virtue.

6.) Who was Reign of Virtue made by?

Reign of Virtue was made by Deano. It was made over a period of 6 months (a lot of that time was spent *not* doing any modding, but that's not the point).

7.) What other mods is Reign of Virtue compatible with?

Reign of Virtue should be compatible with most of the modern mods that are out there. The only known incompatibility is with Epic Endeavours, as it completely restrcutures the game. Any game that is installed using the WeiDU installer, will most likely always work, but I suggest installing them after Reign of Virtue in order to completely ensure compatibility (mods such as Kelsey and Tashia for example).

And yes... it is compatible with the one and only Freedom's Reign.

8.) Is there any chance of putting this into a different/better install type?

Reign of Virtue is perfect as an IAP-SFX package. No other is required. Any other installation types are unfeasible in my understanding. I have been asked if I can make an "override only" version. That will never happen, as I am not going to bring that sort of incompatibility into my modification.
