Four Character Creation

Known bugs / Workaround
There are some NPC's that bug out the mod and can ruin your save, one of these is the dialog bug. As far as I'm aware there's no way the author can fix this as it's engine based rather than the mod.
The NPC's that "bug" the game are what I call "Force Encounters". Force encounter's are when palyers get to a certain area and a random NPC forces the closest player into conversation. Because players 3 & 4 are companions, there's a bug where they can't end the conversation or move / do anything.

There are 2 ways to avoid these "Force Encounters" destroying your save...

1 - Save frequently, so if it does happen, you can just revert back to a save instead of going to the last autosave, which could lose you 30+ minutes of gameplay you just done.

2 - Get Player 1 or 2 to trigger these "Force Encounters" before player 3 or 4 goes near them and the problem won't happen.

Below will list the "Force Encounters" I have found so far that cause the dialog bug to happen...

- The Ground Floor of the "Cooks House" in Cyseal.

- The Fish Stand In the market area / center of Cyseal.

- The Beggar over in the East of Cyseal.


As far as I'm aware, this bug isn't an issue after youn reach the Hall Of Heroes and should prevent any "Force Encounters" breaking the save/game...

Out of curiosity, did you start your game on another version of the mod? Because I think I fixed these dialog issues yesterday in the lattest version. Unfortunately old saved games don't get the fix.

We Started a new game since the fix and had it happen to us again. So that's why I posted this to help other people :)

I dont mind having to save/load in order to get rid of a random bug. But I am little lost here.

Normaly I press F5 every once in a while and load the game from there if something happens - no problems here.

Do you recomend that I now should keep on saving many different saves (different files) manually istead of using this one F5 slot?

No, only those 3 encounters i mentioned in the first comment causes an issue until you unlock the "hall of heroes" part. after that there is 0 issues and no need to worry :)

The only time I make a "different save file" is when we stop playing at the end of the day, just to make sure my singleplayer autosave doesn't overwrite the 4 player autosaves :)

only trigger dialogue with 1 or 2 - primary characters. If you are unsure, save often. If you are sure save OFTEN, lol.

For some reason my guys aren't following each other? my first 2 follow one another but when I switch to the extra 2 no one follows

Is this intended or another mod issue?

at the top left of the screen where the character porttraits are, you need to connect them with "chains" and then they will follow :)

Hey, any known reason as for why the second pair of characters won't pop up for character creation? After creating the first two, I just get plopped down into Cyseal.

There was a way to do it, but for the life of me I can't remember it. Sorry ^^

Are "player 3 and 4" just supposed to be glorified minions? because they don't comment for me, and if they're off on their own they don't follow eachother, nor are they able to complete an area on their own (for example I made them go off and do the tutorial mission while the other two walked off, not possible, after a while they can no longer interact with anything.)

If you dismiss one of the party members where do they go? I couldn't find my other party member at the King crab.
