The region, sorry.

I've tentatively finished the Mages Guild, though I need to do some revision, as still is the case with the Fighters Guild.

-N0B00Y04, fixed 1045 failure message
-N0B00Y06, fine
-N0B00Y09, FAILED, Sleep spell
-N0B00Y09, fixed undefined variables which prevented quest functioning. Placed scholar in house2; likely not correct. Placed db in house1; not sure if correct. Repute exceeds task not yet functional; invitation always arrives.
-N0B00Y16, FAILED, Open spell

I'm giving a quick pass through each faction to get started, and then I want to muddle myself with the hard stuff. We can at least have a functional pool for each guild to begin with, I think.

If we're on to fixing house types, house3 just failed for me in Ilessan Hills. The game "found" a match but gave blank values for it. Also, all values from house5 to house8 were a crash for me, a long time ago when I was testing it. I can give it another go on request.

The result of that experiment was interesting. Just for some background, the way houses are chosen is that you tend to set it as "remote HOUSETYPE", which means it'll look for that house type outside your current city.

I tried "remote house4," and on the first try got sent to Daggerfall City, to some very luxury-type house south of Daggerfall Castle. The quest worked perfectly. I then tried it again, and got the blank values bug. DFU stalled very visibly while attempting it that time. Interkarma mentioned that it'll stall for awhile when trying to find a proper match, and then it just appears to output anything if the match didn't work properly. This is the result:

Image

As you can see, there are blank spots where the city and residence names need to be. The quest timer also calculates to zero.

I then tried running a "local house4" quest within a couple of the cities you mentioned, which means it'll do it inside your current city, but they failed to initialize. The error I'm getting from the player log is this:

Code: Select all

Exception: Tried to assign resource scholar to Place without at least 1x spawn and 1x item marker.
  at DaggerfallWorkshop.Game.Questing.Place.AssignQuestResource 
I notice that a high number of the values in your list are actually dungeons; easily 2/3, if not more.

That probably means I screwed it up then. :oops:

Interkarma, I'm running across a variable that's defined differently in DFU than in DF. When an enemy name is preceded by =, like =knight_, in DF it displays a name. In DFU it displays the race. Here's a screenshot of L0B40Y04:

UESP wrote:"I just knew you could not resist this one. Fair warning, your target, (noble's name) is no pampered princeling. The client is also one of the royal family, worried that (noble's name) is going to worm a way to the throne. And from what I've heard, (he/she) has the power to do just that. Our client wants (him/her) extinct in (time limit) days. We will give you that time to account and return to make your report. May Mephala walk with you, (player's first name)."
What I've done up until now is create a dummy duplicate NPC and feed in the dummy name where the = name would be placed. Do you want me to do that for the classic quests too, or is this something to be resolved in the system?

Also, the Vampire in L0B10Y03 uses a mummy name instead of a humanoid one.

Looking at this quickly, the =symbol_ macro for a Foe resource should output a display name, but I've made a mistake and it's emitting the wrong text. I'll get this fixed up as a priority.

Edit: Two mistakes, actually. The name generation for Foe resources was still unfinished, and I'm emitting the wrong text. Will fix this up along with the problem below in L0B10Y03. I'm just going to use local climate to select namebank as with other NPC names, unless any objections? I should also be able to fix the indeterminate gender of spawned humanoid foes at the same time.

There's no mummy name as such - monstrous Foe resources draw from a different name bank than humanoid resources. I can see it would make sense for a vampire to use a regular name bank though. Easy enough to fix.

Edit: Thanks for confirming vampires in classic also use monster namebank. No changes needed then.

I'll give it a shot in a little bit. Just finished all the Dark Brotherhood quests :)

-L0A01L00, FAILED, needs action support at mixing poison and decanter. Fixed undefined QG location. Set quest timers as fixed 14 and 30 days to allow completion. Set 30 day timer to stop when 14 day timer begins for fairness.
-L0B00Y00, fine
-L0B00Y01, fixed undefined informant location. Enemy name is undefined.
-L0B00Y02, various undefined names. Quest timer is tight due to multiple remote locations.
-L0B00Y03, enemy mage has no defined name.
-L0B10Y01, enemy bard has no defined name.
-L0B10Y03, fixed place names. Fixed instant reward glitch. Quest timer is tight due to multiple remote locations.
-L0B20Y02, fine
-L0B30Y03, fine
-L0B30Y09, fine
-L0B40Y04, changed =knight_ to _knight_ in dialogue.
-L0B50Y11, fine
-L0B60Y10, added instant reward fix.

I'm assuming the DB quests were written last of all, since they almost all have the instant reward glitch fixed.

Well, uh, I was wrong about the vampire name thing :lol: In classic the vampire is named Dispilon, Morkul, and so on. Shows what I know!

Do you still want me to test humanoid names in general, or is this what you were looking for?

Thanks for letting me know! :)

No problems for testing names anymore, I'll just make this follow climate like other humanoid NPC names, unless any objections? I've edited post above now.
