bug fixes /dfqfix

Post by onikobe » Mon Apr 20, 2020 4:57 pm

hi,

i wanted to ask if the fixes from dfqfix (https://en.uesp.net/wiki/Tes2Mod:DFQFIX)are implemented in daggerfall unity.
Stuff like not getting the fame reward from the king of worms after a certain main quest.

Hi,

The plain text quests bundled with Daggerfall Unity are based on a decompilation of classic quests with all known fixes applied, so I think the answer is yes.

Questions have come up occasionally on which specific unofficial patches (from the list at https://en.uesp.net/wiki/Daggerfall:Fil ... _and_Fixes - for some reason DFQFIX gets its own "Mod" page on the UESP, but it's only one of several such patches) are already included in DFU, so Jay_H, maybe you'd consider including a note referencing any confirmed included patches on the main DFU UESP page (https://en.uesp.net/wiki/Tes2Mod:Daggerfall_Unity)? I would do this myself, but I'm unsure as well as to exactly which patches are in fact covered. Thanks!

EDIT: I see inclusion of BIOGFIX has been under discussion: https://github.com/Interkarma/daggerfal ... ssues/1468. Not sure of the current status.

All quest bug fixes for classic are included into DFUnity. :)

Yes, that ball is on me. I always pushed this back. Thanks for the reminder Mike! :)

Thanks for the info, Deepfighter! It seems from your linked code that the specific unofficial patches/fixes included are Ancestral Ghost's patch and Tipton's DFQFIX. Is it safe to assume that these two comprehensive patches include all of the miscellaneous unofficial quest patches listed at https://en.uesp.net/wiki/Daggerfall:Fil ... _and_Fixes, with the exception of the BIOGFIX patch you're working on?

@Jay_H - important info for the main DFU UESP page (https://en.uesp.net/wiki/Tes2Mod:Daggerfall_Unity), possibly as detail to the "Fewer bugs" note? :)

I rewrote it this way:
Fewer bugs, including all quest fixes such as DFQFIX and new community quest fixes

To clarify this a little more, DFU quests are built on top of DFQFIX patch, from someone called PLRDLF. This patch was made around ten years ago using Tipton's tools and expanded Tipton's original fixes at the beginning. It was updated for a few years before its author went on something else.
