Nah, I'm cool with English.
Maester Silvio  [author] 16 Nov @ 8:55am 
Yeah, in most other cases a missing string wouldn't crash it, but with journal pages it does. I hope playing in English doesn't diminish your experience in any way. :heart:
Kurama 15 Nov @ 1:58pm 
Well that would explain it, strange it causes crashes though.
Maester Silvio  [author] 15 Nov @ 11:09am 
Are you playing in a language apart from English? PBD only supports English, unfortunately.
Kurama 15 Nov @ 9:50am 
I start a new game with the mod installed, try to read the first note I was given and get an immediate crash, not sure why. I thought it's something about other mods, but I tried to do it without any other mod installed and still get a crash.

Oh jeez, big F

Didn't realize there was more than one tutorial mission for a couple weeks, so I went in with a Flag and Hellion. Turns out the slimes now are immune to DoT for some godforsaken reason and I lost Flag and Vestal.

Both of those should be fully compatible, but if you run into any issues let me know
