    Cerulean,

    Cool beans on the flying owl....However, I was too eager in one of my last posts, bc I am still having CTDs whenever I try to access the inventory of my pcs in game...with the exception of my wizard character. You mentioned that I should PM you the codes...they will be on there way shortly.

    Thanks.

    Has this been integrated into the renegade mods fix package (4.01)?

    Yes it has, all the renegade mods listed in Gaear's thread are rolled into the 4.0.1 patch.

    Is there any way to place your familiar back in your inventory before the 8 hr duration is up? Summoned a snake familiar and its pretty slow moving, not to mention if I know I'm heading into combat shortly I'd want to put it back in my wizards pack so it doesn't get squished by a bugbear or something.

    very cool having a familiar that can actually be something more than an inventory item, thanks for the effort.

    Inex- I would suggest "passing time" or resting- thats how I took care of getting my slowpoke slitherer back "quickly" and safely!

    Yeah, that's it. The spell lasts 8 hours, no more - no less, resting, or passing time is the only way to end the spell. Ooo, while I think of it, I'd like to inform you guys, I've edited the creatures animation speed (blue has the updated version) that should take care of slowpoke creatures. :)

    Another update to the Summonable Familiars stuff. With these files the familiar doesn't disappear after a set time (well it will, but the set time is something like 680 years). Instead, when you want the familiar to go back into your pack, you talk to it and tell it to do so.

    Oh, and you always summon them from the inventory radial menu now.

    When you put the familiar back in your pack it will not heal, but it will remove all spell effects/poison/disease from it. When you call forth the familiar once again, it will still have any damage it had when you put it away, but it will gain hp for any increase in it's masters level while it was in the pack.

    [EDIT] Fixed the problem as of 12:33 am GMT on 4/4/2006. Allyx was correct, I forgot the proto.tab file. Please redownload.

    Wow, I know you told me briefly about this the other day on the IRC, but now you explained it here in more detail, it sounds exceptionally impressive.

    [EDIT] I tried it out and can't get it to work dude, there's no protos.tab in the rar file (I assume there are changes to it that file to make this work), is that as intended?

    D'oh!

    Your correct Allyx. I forgot the proto.tab file. Stupid me. That's what I get for rushing. It's fixed now. Please re-download.

    Btw, the proto.tab is the base one so far for 4.1.0, so if you use it things might seem a little different is you are not already using Kalshanes fixes.

    Well as the oh so missed C-Blue would have rightfully griped at me for-- I didn't READ the whole discussion on this--

    And thatnks to Ted for telling me again in PM..

    To put the Familiar BACK in your Backpack---

    Simply "talk" to it -from your radial dial of course-- it goes back rather politely :)

    Dam, wouldn't it be awesome to have some that do it impolitely? I still remember the great times with imps and dust mephits in BG2. I wonder if it's possible to have wizards summon alignment-based familiars...
