Problems applying "Unfinished Business Mod"

by Isaacthulhu on Mon Mar 02, 2009 6:14 amPostQuick Link PostView Single Post

Hi there, I am new to the board and have long loved PST.
I have migrated to Linux since I first played the Game years ago, and after about 2 days of banging my head on the desk trying to install it with wine finally succeeded in getting it to work as it should albeit a bit slowly.

The reason I am posting this is because I recall having been able to patch it when I played it back in the day, now however it seems the Mods to not wish to cooperate with me and they consistently return the DOS output:

C:\Program Files\pstub\Setup-PST-UB.exe

[C:\Program Files\Black Isle\Planescape - Torment/CHITIN.KEY] loaded, 178649 bytes

[C:\Program Files\Black Isle\Planescape - Torment/CHITIN.KEY] 372 BIFFs, 12135 resources



ERROR: Unable to find DIALOG.TLK in:

dialog.tlk



Please run this program in your Infinity Engine game directory.



FATAL ERROR: Failure("Unable to find DIALOG.TLK")


Now, my first instinct was to go searching for this "DIALOG.tlk" file so I could work my way backwards and deduce the proper directory to launch the mod from (supposing that is the problem) but when I looked I didn't find any .tlk files at all let alone a DIALOG.tlk file anywhere in the Black Isle directory or any of it's subdirectories.

I have no idea how to resolve this, what could be causing it ...where to start?
The only thing I can figure is that it might have something to do with the fact that i am using the 2CD version of the game...but I am not sure.

I have purchased this game twice already in my life, so I have no issues with DL'ing another version of the thing if it comes to that (it's been payed for), but considering what difficulty I had just getting it installed in the first place I would rather not re-install if it is not absolutely necessary. If it is the only way to get the extra content however I suppose that is what I will have to do.



Can someone help me here?
Anybody know this error or what it could be?

Thanks,

Isaacthulhu

I forgot to mention, I will be happy to write up a comprehensive installation guide for *full-Install* as well as a record of all changes made and how they were successfully accomplished under Wine on Ubuntu Linux 8.04 to show my gratitude.

Record of progress with error output relating to UFB Mod PST

by Isaacthulhu on Mon Mar 02, 2009 9:09 amPostQuick Link PostView Single Post

[UPDATE]

Located this referencehttp://nwn.bioware.com/developers/Bioware_Aurora_TalkTable_Format.pdf file on .tlk files .(did not appear in previous Google searches...not sure why and looking into possible causes for it's absence in prior search)

Describes what a .tlk file IS but not where it might be located.

Still hopelessly lost.

For the love of god will someone help me?

Despite many claims that the 2 disc and 4 disc versions of the game are identical it does indeed appear to be the case that some Mods to in fact not work on the two disc white label distribution of PST as is suggested here: http://www.bootstrike.com/Torment/files.html

If I am mistaken about this I would very much like to be set straight on the issue, as locating a copy of the original 4CD distro is proving to be a quest all it's own.
