"Hey, that floating mage looks all discombobulated and stuff!?" Quick guide to the CEP/ACP Robes override.

Have you come across a mage in game who floats rather than walks? Very likely you've seen them. Have you seen one or two who look.... strange? As in their head and arms are NOT connected to their bodies?

The reason they look like that is because their armor has what is known as a "CEP robe" on it. These are robes from the CEP content. The "floating" thing is part of the "ACP (the fighting styles, see ;;style help in game for more info on how to use the fighting styles).

By default, the CEP robes and ACP styles do not play nice together. When you use a non-default fighting style, the robes won't always match up with your legs, heads and arms.

There is a fix however.

Go to the Aenea Homepge Downloads, and look for the CEP robes for ACP optional file. It's a 1MB download, very small. Download that file.

Now, that file is a "compressed" file, like a .zip file or a .rar file. You will need a program such as 7zip (click for the 7zip website. 7zip is free) to extract the contents of that compressed file.

Once you have finished extracting the contents of the file, all you need to do now is to move them from where-ever you extracted them into your NWN override folder. Once those files are all in your override, log into game, and you should see no more funny looking mages who's bodies look as if they're trying to get away from their heads!.

You should move this to the overrides thread! Sorry I never posted it there ... I never, for whatever reason, used it until the other night ...

The server is down. The homepage's status doesn't seem to update when the server crashes.

The Amethyst Dragon has been contacted, hopefully he will get the head's up soon, and be in a position to investigate.

Wasn't sure just where to post this, but I figured this was about as good a place as any for now; the Robe Fix doesn't seem to be working with the 'trenchcoat robes', at least as far as elves and halflings are concerned (haven't checked on others). For example, if I use the 'assassin' fighting style with a halfling in a trenchcoat, his torso becomes medium sized and (just the torso) switches to the 'horse-riding' pheno Razz

Ra Cha,

As I understand it, some of the robes will not work, even with Manny's fix. He wasn't able to do all the models, or some such reason like that. Jane recently had to redesign a prized Chinese style dress because it would not cooperate with her floaty form ...

The DLA long coats are a pain I haven't been able to figure out. The oriental ones, I *should* be able to fix those... the problem has been taking the time to poke through nwnexplorer to find which specific model I need to edit.
