I would love to learn to do simple mods for this game. I have lots of gaming experience but no coding/modding experience.
Is there a good newbie tutorial somewhere? I would like to contribute and not just benefit! (I know you guys enjoy doing it for us, but just the same.)
Link for only tutorial i know of is already on the op post.
Following it you can unpack pack0.dzip file that contain almost all resources except langpacks and dlc. Then you just look around unpacked things and research through see-try-fail-try-win what you can do with them =)
Atm there are editable .xml and .csv files plus in aforementioned tutorial was link for texture unpack-repack tools.
For anything other (.w2anything files extensions) there are no tools, that i know of.
Right now mostly interesting is .xml`s with items and abilities descriptions, shop descriptions also, try do something with them for a start.
To work, modded files should be placed in "The Witcher 2\CookedPC\" in subfolder they were unpacked in.
Good luck =)
I had looked at that info and it seemed daunting.
I took a crack at it and I now have the files to peruse. Thanks for the encouragement!
the talisman i already have.
what i do need is the essence of death item to complete the meletiles heart side quest in chapter 1, because this is the only way to actually "clean" the talisman that would be otherwise cursed.
I ended up giving up and selling it to her. 200 orens and quest complete. You dont miss out on much apparently. There really needs to be a way to flag quest ingredients (troll tongue/essence of death/that other thing you get from the back of the cave for poison resistance potion etc).
All in favour say Eye!
Missed my chance for these because of cutscene.
You know that you can tell the elf that you arent ready to go yet and go grab the loot yourself right?
My first play, I had no trouble looting monster. Second one I had to kill it twice. And, yes, told elf I'd catch up both times.
The event is a little buggie.
