A Dance With Rogues - Update to Part Two?

I read somewhere that there was going to be an updated Part Two that would tie up some loose ends from Part One. Does anyone know what the changes to the story would have been? Thanks ^^

I would like to know about this as well. These are by far my favorite modules to date. I expressed interest some time ago about giving them a “facelift”, which I did. Unfortunately the original author is MIA and without their approval I can’t post it.

Oh, that’s unfortunate. I only recently started playing the game and its player-made modules. I know it’s an old game, but it’s a little bittersweet to see all of these great modules abandoned :<

Old but still the best LOL.

Assuming you have tried, without success, to contact the author. It would probably be ok to publish your “facelift” on a new Project page with credits to the author and some text offering to remove the Project if the author wishes it. In addition, add the original Project to the Required Projects section so that the original Mod needs to be downloaded to use your changes.

Hope this make sense and does contravene any rules I don’t know about.

It’s still the same as the original. I just edited the graphics (I didn’t add any new haks but used the hak patch method and edited the existing hak for comparability). The story, scripts, etc are still original.

It has been so many years since there was an update that I think the author has long forgot about the 2 modules. I hope I am wrong. If there is ever an update for part 2 it will have to be from someone else.

Oh, I know. I just wanted to know what was planned for the update in terms of story and character xD

As far as I can tell, the last communication from Valine was in the patch notes for part v 1.5

"On updates…

I’m still working on an update for part two in order to bring it into line with the changes I’ve made with part one (Simon’s and Arto’s roles, for example). However, as I’m still tossing around and discarding ideas, it’s probably going to be a while before I’ll be able to uplaoad that update to the vault. I’m sorry that things are going kind of slow there, but I’m not yet happy with the changes done so far, and I don’t want to publish versions I’m not happy with.

In the meantime I’ve got a (smallish) update for part one. The changes I’ve made here kind of reflect the general direction I’m trying to go with the update for part two (see the new and hopefully improved “Tony the Tiger”- und “Missing Pia”-quests)."

Sounds like she was going to add more appearances of certain characters which were either introduced in the newer versions of part one or at least became more prominent. The most obvious character that comes to mind is Simon Lyonson, who does not even appear in current version of Act Two and Arto’s role is fairly minor.

Alas it has been nearly a decade so any further updates from Valine seem unlikely. Hopefully she’s doing well and just got busy with real life obligations.
