New Avlis Haks Release August 2021 (Now Live)

Post by Hamlet » Fri Jul 16, 2021 9:55 pm

All,

Please visit the Avlis Wiki, re-download the following hak bundle & extract in your Neverwinter Nights/haks folder:

http://wiki.avlis.org/Needed_Files
You will need these files in order to log in, starting first of week of August 2021.


Q: What changed?
A: avlis_ext_2_1a (new hak) replaces avlis_ext_2. It contains .2da files. Those are required player-side in order for bug fixes and other changes to work (eg. Spells, Traps).
avlis_ext_5 (modified hak) introduces more icons for items used in Avlis systems (eg. Cooking, Traps).

Q: This download overwrites my current avlis_ext_5 hak. Will that break something?
A: No. It merely adds custom icons for items which did not have them before.

Q: What about the old avlis_ext_2.hak? Will I need it when this change is live?
A: No. You can as well leave it there, it will do no harm.

Q: So you're versioning avlis_ext_2 but not avlis_ext_5. How come?
A: avlis_ext_5 content will be moved to a CoPaP hak soon. We're using it provisionally to store icons until then.

...soon.

The hak update is scheduled to go live next week!

If you've already downloaded the package, please do so again - we added a few more item icons (orange juice, anyone)? oo8)
