Pls Confirm on Daggerfall Install: Compact, Full or Custom?

Post by CasualClark » Sun Jan 20, 2019 4:51 pm

I wanted to confirm that when the Unity site states to do the 'default' install of DaggerfallSetup, you mean the 'Compact' version? Or are there any of the fixes/quest packs in that install that might be recommended? The site says there could be incompatibilities with some of the mods but it isn't specific except for language packs, so I wasn't sure if there might be others that are okay to use.

Reason I ask is that I installed the 'Custom' version including some of the quest fixes/packs and I'm encountering a number of broken quests in Unity, both random and guild, where either a specified residence is not in the town cited in the quest, or the NPC said to be in a specified residence is not there when I arrive. I assume this is a result of the optional packs I used in my install and that I should stick with the Compact version only?

Let me know and thanks for your help!

it's probably best to use the files that interkarma provides as DaggerfallGameFile.zip for daggerfall unity, there's nothing stopping you from using the daggerfallsetup files to try classic though

The main options to avoid from DaggerfallSetup are the language mods. I think almost everything else integrates OK.

If you experience any problems with the classic quests, please log a bug report with the quest name and a clear description of problem. You can see the quest name by toggling open the quest debugger with LeftShift+Tab. Depending on the bug, I might need a save game to reproduce properly.
