Enderal SE 2.0.9

2.0.9 (2021-10-23)

– Reworked main menu in quest_journal.swf. Re-added Quicksave, moved it to the second position, and made the menu scrolled to it by default, making Quit visible right away.
– Added a check for incompatible dialoguemenu.swf replacers. If dialoguemenu.swf doesn’t support dialog locking, user receives a warning during conversation.

– Automatically select the first and only apparition in the stats menu (statssheetmenu.swf).

gavrant:
– Fixed occasional CTDs shortly after an apparition is unsummoned.
– Fixed apparitions not able/not willing to use many spells from spellbooks handed to them. NOTE: Apparitions will still ignore mythical and “summon creature” spells for balancing reasons. “Summon weapon” spells will work though.
– Fixed some apparition buffs and effects from player’s perks, mostly from affinities with other classes: Spectral Warrior, Spektralist and Soulcaller. Soulcaller (transforming an apparition to a werewolf) got especially many fixes.
– On using phasmalism stations, apparitions will actually be placed in the glass tank.
– Improved following procedure: apparitions will bump less into you and will be more willing to swim when needed.
– “You cannot have an apparition … It will be banished” messages will appear when the player, not the apparition, crosses a “no apparitions” border. Also replaced the “OK” message box with a “tutorial” message appearing in the middle of the screen for several seconds.
– And other fixes and “quality of life” tweaks to phasmalism.
– (Mostly) fixed weird dark squarish patches in the open sea, most notably the ones visible from Frostcliff Mountains.

– All normal children will flee combat now.
– Fixed wolves and horses not playing half of their sounds, including howling for the wolves.
– Various small tweaks and fixes to idle animations and sounds of wolves.
– Doubled the distance from the player at which randomly picked idle animations of NPCs start playing, to about 60 meters. For example, you’ll hear wolves from much further away now.
– Armors: fixed some footstep sounds (mostly from Enderal SE – Bug Fixes by Ixion), many slot assignments (a sort of hierarchy of armor pieces and body pieces when worn) and weapon positions.
– Fixed sound 3D positioning settings of Iron Arrow, Old Iron Arrow (from Enderal SE – Bug Fixes by Ixion) and Deathstorm spell projectile.
– Fixed NPC pathfinding (navmeshing) and a few minor issues in Glimmerdustcave at Sun Coast.
– Replaced “Teleport to Fogville” scrolls in several treasure mounds in Frostcliff Mountains with more appropriate “Teleport to Frostcliff Tavern” and “Teleport to Northwind Camp”.
– Fixed several patches of excessive grass on the road going west from Riverville.
– Fixed terrain patches with wrong texture paths at the Isle of Kor and the coast of Powder Desert.
– Fixed awkward mesh path of a property sign (_00E_PropertySign) and wrong texture paths of a “fall” cypress tree (gkbcyrodilcypress1fallversion.nif).
– Fixed not being able to loot perversions during “Dark Chambers Of Our Mind”.
– Herald in Ark Market will be less spammy with his announcements, making honest 3 minutes pauses between them. Also he got some improvements to his animations during the “performance”.
– Made the too loud ambient sounds in Duneville significantly quieter.
– Fixes to AI pathfinding (navmeshing) in Ark Market, the Fat Leoran tavern and the Silver Cloud brothel.
– Fixes and improvements to normal routines of several NPCs, especially in the Silver Cloud.
– Singing bards:
— Fixed all mistakes and discrepancies in the bards’ song lists. They will play every music piece available to them now, whether when asked by the player or in the “random shuffle mode” (especially the uniquely voiced Lavenia from the Red Ox, Farmers Coast).
— The “sing random song” dialogue option (“You choose one”) was moved to the bottom of the dialogue list and now will play only voiced songs, no instrumentals.
— In the Wayward Wanderer song, Timun (the False Dog, Undercity) and Lara (the Frostcliff Tavern) will be joined by a nearby idling minstrel for the flute part.
— In general, more reliable and immersive behavior/animations of all 7 singing bards and their audience NPCs, and other smaller fixes and improvements to the bards.
– Aeterna Minstrels, Ark Market:
— When the minstrels are not performing in the market, the usual ambient music tracks will be played there, as in the rest of Ark quarters.
— The minstrels will stay in their resting place for 3 days after the start of the siege of Ark, while the city is recovering from the attack and is cleaned up.
— The dancer minstrel won’t get stuck in the dance animation anymore when she ends her performance.

Now will do the standard damage multipliers for distant attacks: 1.5x normally and 2.5x with “Infiltrator: Heart Shot”.
– Dreameater spells: dual casting now will increase the main damage instead of the duration (more damage per second instead of longer duration, the total damage remains the same).
– Psionic Push spells: dual casting now will properly scale the main damage of the spells.
– Some common vatyrs from the Heartlands lost their 8% magic resistance, which they had for no apparent reason, with no other vatyrs being resistant to magic.
