    Damn, didn't work, it shows quests complete in the journal but the quest NPCs still ask me to do it. I think I need an item to prove I completed it too. Gonna have to wait for CO8 forum to help. In other news, I got ambushed by a huge random encounter of bandit rogues lead by a Robin Hood type character. Interesting, and really tough fight. My first few attempts had them kill my wizzy before I even got a turn. I don't like using raise dead because it lowers their XP so I just reloaded a few times until he survived and then it was a win.

    Funny that someone named jewboy is trying to convince people to use windows 10.

    Don't listen to this, windows 10 is a dogshit operating system and temple+ runs fine on my windows 7 machine.

    Fuck it, I just uninstalled this. I enjoyed the mod to this point but this seems buggy and/or stupidly designed. Also making me wait 4 days to post on the forum and then another 1-2 days of don't give a shit replies, makes think it is not worth me trying to make it work if they don't even care about their own mod.

    To explain the bug/mess: I tried every possible method to get the dialogue skill checks to work on a quest, it wasn't working. I was level 13. So I tried console cheats, gave myself 3 levels. Got Indimidation/Diplo up to about 23 ish (maxed for that level). Still didn't work. Gave myself another level, and used a feat to give improved skill and used that on diplomacy. Finally it worked. But at this point I am 4 levels higher which I didn't earn myself which makes me not care about the game anymore, and to do it legit I would have to load a savegame and grind 4 levels of random encounters which is insane.

    It may be a bug, or it may be that it is designed to not work unless you have an absurdly high dialogue skill. But if that is true it seems bad to have a game about so many choices, yet force the player to max a certain skill. And there is no way to just skip the quest, and you can't get any other quests without getting past this one. So you hit a brick wall at level 13 and the only solution is to cheat or grind about 4 levels of random encounters without even knowing that you should. Only then can you get past this and get more quests.

    TL-DR- Loved TOEE, Temple+ crashed a hell of a lot but overall was a big help, co8 was mostly a let down. I may play through it again in several more years once I forgot stuff and it will feel fresh again.

    If you're talking about the kidnapped kids in the sewers, there is an item ("crown of discernment" or something) that lets you pass the skill check easily. And AFAIR it's not necessary to finish it to get to the rest of the new content. I never had any problem finishing Co8 new content, whether I did all quests or not.

    I was wearing the crown, it gives more dialogue options in the first step. Then the guy walks away and you have to cast charm person on him. Which can work in one of two ways, but either way didn't seem to help. Then you have to talk to him again while charmed, and you get a chance to use diplomacy, intimidate, and some others. But they all fail even with max skill. I would have liked to skip it but I couldn't find any new quests. It is over now anyway. I spent a week to try to figure it out. Installing a new game although I was tempted to play IWD to compare.

    I agree with Lonely Vazdru, it sounds to me like your save is just good and FUCKED. I've never heard of someone having this much trouble with that part. If you're using windows 10 then you deserve all the bugs you get.

    Nope, that's a known bug, fixed in Co8.
