greeting to all.I have few question regardless extractor and editing game files.
1.Downloaded extractor,in this program i chose main.pak to extract.Extracted files,then i copy them to Data folder of Divinity EE.Delete main.pak,laucnh game.All work fine.If i try to edit something like this:In folder data\mods\main\charactercreation\properties.lsx i change this lines:
<attribute id="NumStartingAbilityPoints" value="5" type="4" />
<attribute id="NumStartingAttributePoints" value="5" type="4" />
<attribute id="NumStartingTalentPoints" value="2" type="4" />
The game after lauch say about error,but loading fine and without any changes.
Is anyone can help me to find few things:How edit start ability,talent,stat points of characters and ability of increasing party to at least 4-6 members?
I've done pretty much the same thing, with the same result.
I've also tried to change HenchMen and ClassPresets, to no avail.
It seems the game engine just doesn't care about the .LSX files. Just to make sure it wasn't still loading old files, I deleted the original .PAK files after extracting them. The game starts fine, but my changes are still ignored. Has anyone been able to figure out why this happens?
As a side note, you can make the game shut up about the invalid files by clearing the "MD5" value in the meta.lsx file,
which I suppose immediately invalidates my previous claim about the game engine not caring about the .LSX files.
I guess the CharacterCreation stuff is handled differently than the other .LSX files...
Has anyone been able to figure out if there is some way to get the game to accept your modified files?
