Hello all. I'm having a really weird bug that I can't seem to solve. I'm playing TSL with the following mods/patches:

1.0b patch
Achilles Game Balance
Hardcore Mod
Ultimate Sabre Mod
High Level Force Powers 2.1

I just hit level 19, and I'm trying to pick up the master heal power. It lets me select it, but when I try to cast it my party isn't healed. It doesn't even make the right casting noise... Any ideas what could cause this?

I tried removing all mods, but then the savegame crashes when I try to load it, so I'm rather at a loss.

Thanks in advance for any ideas...

Do you have a file named k_sp1_generic.ncs in your override folder? If so, try to remove it and see if that makes the problem go away. (This is the impact script for all the standard game force powers. If it has been improperly modified it may cause the behavior you describe.)

If that isn't the problem, have you opened spells.2da, found in your override folder, with KotorTool and clicked on one of the column titles to change the sort order before saving it? Doing this would corrupt the file since it relies on the rows coming in the right order. (That would affect all powers though, not just heal.)

This is probably due to the fact that you have custom force powers and/or lightsabers referred to in your save game that no longer exists in the game resources, causing the game to crash when failing to load those missing resources. You could probably remove those references with either KSE or a GFF editor if necessary.

Welcome Malatar!

What stoffe said!(ALWAYS what stoffe said!) Although it is my experience with crashes that they are caused by appearance alterations USUALLY - if you only have the MODs you listed installed I would leave the USM MOD in the override and then try it - if no crash then add the Achilles MOD - if still no crash try adding the Hardcore MOD - just keep going one by one until you find the culprit - though I must tell you that I use ALL the MODs you listed EXCEPT beancounter's Hardcore MOD, and I have never experienced this problem!

Hope this helps!
