Platter's Planescape: Torment Fix Pack v1.37 - updated August 23, 2004

Download (242kb) <-- Please note that Quinn's Fix Pack is more comprehensive nowadays.

Hey everyone. This site came back online on July 2020. What you need to know: this site was created by someone else (Platter). However, the site went down in March or April of 2006, but I just by sheer luck had done an automated crawl/retrieval of the entire site mere weeks beforehand. That is mostly what you see here. I made a few updates that you'll see below. Otherwise the site is pretty much just as it was back in the early 2000s. There is a lot of good info here, if you can handle the old-fashioned design!

Can an expert tell me if this fix pack is dangerous to keep around nowadays? We have the Planescape: Torment Enhanced Edition, and I'm almost certain that the fix pack is bad for that. Right? Should I remove everything here? Please advise. Contact me at hoopyfroop at yahoo.com if you have good advice. Thanks!

PS: Please note that I have also saved/salvaged the original TSR Archive - documenting every book published for D&D up to about the year 2006 or 2007. Mostly this just has covers and publisher info for all the early books (Chainmail and such) but it does have D&D 3rd edition stuff too (lots of it).

Planescape: Torment, 20th anniversary - December 12, 2019!

This Fix Pack fixes many bugs in Planescape: Torment that were not fixed by the official 1.1 patch.

July 7, 2020 update: My saved version of the original (now dead) site ALSO went dead, so here I am reviving my revival. Happy 4th of July, and I hope everyone lives through the Coronavirus!

April 10, 2009 update: Added a new tattoo from Nessa, and some new forum & fan links a few lines below this, and added more Chris Avellone quotes to the "crap" page.

November 27, 2008 update: Added a new tattoo from Vinícius.

August 17, 2008 update: Added a few extra links to the tattoos page.

March 30, 2008 update: note that work on fixing PS:T has continued even though Platter has disappeared. After you install his fix pack, you should go to bootstrike.com to grab the SKARDAVNELNATE patch. In other words, official 1.1 patch first, then Platter's fix pack, then SKARDAVNELNATE patch. OK? Good!

Also, please note that the Planescape forum links on this site no longer work (the Interplay forums disappeared when Interplay went bankrupt). However, other Planescape forums are still active here and here. And also here and here. Also, if you're interested, there is a site offering Planescape fan fiction. Also, Deviant Art has quite a large collection of Planescape fan art.

Extract the zip file into Torment's override folder - for example;
C:\Program Files\Black Isle\Torment\override\
You should start a new game after installing this.

NOTE: If you have the four CD version of Torment, make sure you have the official 1.1 patch installed before installing this Fix Pack. Applying the official patch after installing this Fix Pack can overwrite some of these files. Don't apply the official 1.1 patch to the two CD version of Torment. This version has already been patched, and patching it can cause major problems.

Platter Some of the random banters between party members would not happen because of a bug in their triggers. BMORTE.DLG, BNORDOM.DLG

Ash McGowen If you had any Magic Resistance while copying the Circles of Zerthimon to your spell book the copying would have a chance to fail equal to your Magic Resistance percentage. CIRCLE03.ITM, CIRCLE04.ITM, CIRCLE05.ITM, CIRCLE06.ITM, CIRCLE07.ITM, CIRCLE08.ITM
Platter You couldn't initiate dialog with half of the shoppers in the Lower Ward Marketplace. AR0504.INI, DMCM4CLU.DLG

Ash McGowen Vrischika's combat script would be halted if Standish was killed before she could cast Improved Strength on him. 0609VRIS.BCS

Platter When the skeleton-like Shadows in Ravel's Maze attacked it would drain their own strength instead of their target's strength. SHADOW2.ITM
Platter Corvus experience loop. DHGCORV.DLG
Platter If you caught Yellow-Fingers stealing from you and Morte was in your party there was a certain dialog path that could lead into Sharegrave's dialog, messing up the quest to find the source of Pharod's bodies for him. DMORTE.DLG

Platter "The Justifier" was supposed to remember knowing you a long time ago when you asked it "What can you tell me about yourself?" if you had talked to it at least three times.

Ash McGowen Nordom's Crossbows were red like items are when you cannot use them. NORDXBOW.ITM

Joshua Haber You couldn't reread the sixth circle of Zerthimon because it pointed to the last paragraph of the second circle instead. DCIRCLEZ.DLG
Platter Emoric experience loop. DEMORIC.DLG
Platter In dialog with Xachariah you should have had the option "Improvise: "It is I. Do you not recognize my voice?"" if you had 17 (or greater) Intelligence or Charisma, but it only worked for Intelligence. DXACH.DLG
Platter If you convinced Mortai to give you 100 coppers for signing a Dead Contract with him, he still only gave you 50 coppers. DMORTAI.DLG

Platter You couldn't get the conversations you were supposed to be able to have with Nordom after saying "Can we discuss my immortality again?" because of a typo in a dialog action. DNORDOM.DLG
Platter A few of the thugs outside the Mortuary area had a piece of the Dabus' script in theirs, causing the Lady to get angry if you fought them as though you'd attacked a Dabus. 0200THG1.BCS, 0200THG2.BCS
Platter You couldn't transform the "Entropic Blade" directly from Fists to Clubs proficiency because of a typo in that response trigger. DEBLADE.DLG
Platter If you attacked Hezobol in Carceri through dialog it would increment the global variable "Curst_Counter" when you chose the option "Attack him." and then again when you chose the next and only available option "Fight." It should have only been incremented once. This variable keeps track of how many things you have done in Carceri to lessen the chaos and weakens Trias the higher it gets. DHEZOBOL.DLG
Chaos Incarnate Annah in the Hive outside the Mortuary at the beginning of the game would say things to any party member who walked by that were meant to be said only to the Nameless One. 0200ANNA.BCS

Platter The item "Adder's Tear" had its 'drop sound' - the sound when you pick it up and drop it in the inventory screen - typed incorrectly and thus it didn't play. ADDRTEAR.ITM
Platter Once you completed all the quests for "The Grimoire of Pestilential Thought", it would add the same entry to your journal every time you tried to talk to it. DPESTAL.DLG
Platter Minor bug in Grace's dialog if you told her that you might love Annah and you had already met both Deionarra and Ravel. An option would show up twice in one situation, and never in another. It should have been one in each. DGRACE.DLG
Platter Several minor bugs with the Forge dialog in the Foundry. DFORGE.DLG
Platter One of the "multi-faceted globes" in the Fortress would say Deionarra's line "I shall wait for you in death's halls, my Love." including the sound, if you clicked on it. AR1201.ARE

Platter Some of the Hive Thugs' scripts were not being assigned properly. 0000NT.BCS

Platter A bugged stat check in Ghysis the Crooked's dialog if your Wisdom was below 13. During the part where you recall a memory you would get "Try and recall the memory" as dialog option #1 and #2, where #1 was the correct option and #2 was the option you should have only gotten if your Wisdom was 13 or higher. DGHYSIS.DLG
Platter Sometimes all Godsmen in the Foundry would ask you to leave and refuse to talk to you even if you had done nothing wrong. Caused by a bug in Thildon's dialog during the murder investigation quest. DTHILDON.DLG
Platter The Hammer would cause a slight trail when moving it in the inventory screen. II091.BAM
Platter Very rare bug that could occur when having Dak'kon translate for Fell, in which he would go through his "joining the party" dialog again. DDAKKON.DLG
Platter The game would sometimes freeze when you decided to become the Silent King. 1501ATTA.BCS, 1501HARG.BCS, 1501CS1.BCS, 1501CS4.BCS
Platter Several dialogs had a specific stat check bug that caused the check to be ignored and therefore you would never fail it. So expect a few stat checks where it seemed there were none before. The dialogs of the following characters were affected; Mochai, Barkis, Barr, Mantuok, Radine, Shaddeus, Raimon, Quint, Bedai, and Thildon. DMOOCH.DLG, DBARKIS.DLG, DBARR.DLG, DMANTUOK.DLG, DRADINE.DLG, WDRGUARD.DLG, DRAIMON.DLG, DQUINT.DLG, DBEDAI.DLG, DTHILDON.DLG
Platter A minor bug in the Practical Incarnation's dialog. It would go back to the main question tree instead of ending the dialog one of the times you say "Let me get my bearings, and we shall speak again." DINCAR1.DLG
Platter A bugged stat check in Nordom's dialog when upgrading him using your Charisma. DNORDOM.DLG
Platter A bugged stat check in Sandoz's dialog that closed off certain solutions to the quest involving him unless your Intelligence was exactly 14, instead of 14 and above. DSANDOZ.DLG
Platter A bugged stat check in Yi'minn's dialog that prevented you from figuring out his offer to help you is a trap unless your Intelligence was exactly 14, instead of 14 and above. DYI'MINN.DLG
Platter Two bugged stat checks in Eli Havelock's dialog that occur when he is training you as a thief if you've never been one before. DELI.DLG
Ash McGowen The Negative Token wouldn't work on the skeleton-like Shadows in Ravel's Maze. NTOKEN.ITM
Platter Couldn't get the upgrade for Nordom where you suggest that his "separation from the Source is what caused his perspective shift" if both Morte and Fall-From-Grace were in your party. DMORTE.DLG
Platter Turning on "Creative EAX" in "Audio Options" would cause party members' voices to be lowered/muted. REVERB.2DA
Platter Morte would sometimes constantly say "I haven't had this much fun since... the last time." This fix prevents that from happening, and also fixes it if it has already started. DREEK.DLG, DANGYAR.DLG, HAPPY.2DA, MRT011.WAV
Platter If you insisted that Aelwyn tell you of your previous meeting instead of waiting for her to tell you then it wouldn't let you use that info to tell Splinter that you were already a Sensate. DAELWYN.DLG
Platter Sybil experience loop. DSYBIL.DLG
Platter Wish Scroll "infinite use exploit." DWSCROLL.DLG
Platter Dialog with Marissa where you couldn't get her to stone your Lim-lim. DMARISSA.DLG
Christopher Nice Mochai infinite money fix;
This fixes an exploit regarding the NPC Mochai in the Smoldering Corpse bar where you could repeatedly threaten her with the line "You're not really a Dustman, are you?" and get 50 gold each time.
Christopher Nice Barr stats check fix;
This fixes a minor bug in the stat checks when trying to grab Barr's arm when bribing him in the Buried Village. If DEX was less than 10 and STR was greater than 9 you would get two choices that said, "Grab his arm and pin it." If both DEX and STR were less than 10 you wouldn't get the choice at all.
Christopher Nice Ravel conversation bugs;
First, one of the links was messed up if you had killed Marta and talked to Ravel about what shapes she has been. This wouldn't affect anything but was inconsistent with how that was handled if the other two people she had been were killed.
Second, the checks when Ravel teaches you magic weren't restrictive enough so you sometimes got more than one option that said "Close your eyes, listen." one of which was the one you were supposed to get and the other of which was a lesser reward.
