Only the CHAT_MODE_* values provided are accepted. sMessage - actual message text bInvokeCallback = the module's nChat script will be invoked to filter this message, if this is TRUE. WARNING: use extreme caution if setting bInvokeCallback to TRUE from within the OnChat handler itself -- this could lead to an infinite loop and hang your module!

    • This UI callback allows modders to control when menu nodes are hidden or displayed, based on the results of comparing a global UI variable against a specified value. All tests are performed as int values if both values are valid ints; otherwise they're perform as case-insensitive string comparisons.
    • Parameters are as follows
      • global-index: global var index in format of global:x

        • LT = global value is less than the comparision value
        • LTE = global value is less than or equal to the comparison value
        • GT = global value is greater than the comparison value
        • GTE = global value is greater than or equal to the comparison value

Patch v1.07Edit

New FeaturesEdit

GeneralEdit

  • Character Mode and Strategy Mode – In advance of the release of the Mask of the Betrayer expansion pack this September, we’ve included one of the major new revisions we’ve made to the camera and control modes. Now, the four camera modes (Top Down, Chase, Driving and Free Camera) have been consolidated into two modes that are more configurable and clearer to use than the old modes – Character Mode and Strategy Mode. You can toggle which mode you are in by pressing the * key by default.
    • Character Mode: In Character Mode, the camera follows behind and over the shoulder of the currently controlled character. This mode is useful for getting a good look at your surroundings and exploring an area while focused on controlling an individual character. While in Character Mode, by default, holding the Left Mouse Button down and moving the mouse to the left or right will turn the character. You can also turn by moving the mouse to the edge of the screen. Holding down the Middle Mouse Button or pressing the Arrow keys will allow you to rotate the camera around the currently controlled character.
    • Strategy Mode: Strategy Mode is a top down Play Mode that is intended to make controlling a full party easier. This mode is most useful for controlling combat situations involving a full party of characters against a large number of enemies. In Strategy Mode, by default, you can click and drag to select multiple party members. You can rotate the camera either by holding the Middle Mouse Button and moving the mouse, by moving the mouse cursor to the edge of the screen, or by pressing the Arrow Keys.
  • New Options Menu – Patch 1.07 also introduces a new options menu that gives you access to consolidated and clear options for each camera mode.
  • Marquee/Multi-Selection Revamp – Marquee and Multi-selection have been dramatically improved to make controlling a full party much easier. You can see the new improvements to Marquee and Multi-selection in the new Strategy Mode.
  • UI Improvements
    • Party AI On/Off Button – There is now a button on the main game UI, next to the rest button, that will toggle the entire party’s AI on or off.
    • Player Chat List – A list of all players on the server is now available on the Player Menu. You can select any player from this list to send them a tell.
    • "Handles" have been added to the chat windows to allow them to be moved more easily.
    • A logcommands console command has been added that allows you to dump all of the console commands to a text file.
    • Console commands are no longer case sensitive.
  • Gameplay Improvements
    • Darkvision and Low-light Vision are now modes that can be toggled on or off using the Mode Bar.
  • Bronze Dragon - New Creature! The Bronze Dragon creature has been added to the Toolset, so expect him to show up in new community content as well as Mask of the Betrayer.
  • Stealth Improvements – Some improvements have been made to stealth to make it more effective in a Multiplayer environment. Among these, characters who are hidden will no longer show up when detected by any party member, and hidden characters should be hidden properly regardless of faction.

ToolsetEdit

  • A "Find a Resource" Plugin has been added to the toolset.
  • A Creature Appearance Wizard has been added. This will allow you to change the appearance of spawned creatures and creature blueprints, including race, gender, armor and armor attachments. This feature can be accessed by right clicking on a creature or blueprint entry. NOTE: This feature is currently in Beta, and there are plans to improve its functionality.
  • A Texture Swapper has been added that allows builders to swap the textures in a tileset. This feature can be accessed from a tile’s properties pane, visible by right clicking on a tile.
  • A new custom skydome system has been added to the toolset, allowing users to replace the NWN2 skies with skydomes of their own creating.
  • Areas now have additional settings under their Day/Night Stage Properties that allow builders to “de-saturate” an area – that is, remove a percentage of the color from an area, all the way to black and white.

DM ClientEdit

  • A UI feature has been added to allow DMs to adjust player/creature alignments using a slider bar.
  • Comments from the toolset (comments within the {} brackets) will now show up in the Creator.
