the files tab. Image shown in the images tab.
=================================================================
****DahliaLynn's Alistair Epilogues - The Royal Wedding 1.1****

Please see readme!

This scene will trigger for the Human Noble Female Warden upon exiting the
Landsmeet Chamber at the end of the game, provided:

1. You are Human Female and are of Noble Origin
2. You are at Love approval status with Alistair
3. You have selected the "Rule beside him" option during the Landsmeet.
4. You both have survived the Archdemon.

What to expect:

Upon leaving the Landsmeet Chamber at the end of the game, there will be a
load screen followed by a black loading screen. The time for load can be from
12 seconds to around 40 depending on your system. If loading time is considerably
longer than that, your system may not play the scene as intended.
(see "Performance Issues" section)

When the scene completes you will see the Epilogue Slides as usual.

Wedding Dresses:

* FFZero and Lanfaero01 have provided me with Dresses for use with this
scene and is a separate downloadable package.
* Some of these are still works in progress so keep an eye out for updates!
* The mod itself includes the the "Noble Creme" version as the default wedding dress.


Scene Performance:
==============

You may experience a lag in 3 areas where you see the crowd.

* The opening shot
* From behind the Altar
* The final crowd shot

This is normal and expected.

Important!
Please see the section on performance issues below.


Conflicts:
=======

* In some cases, running the optional cutscene performance test will leave 4 files in your override which are supposed to be deleted upon completion of the test. If you find the following four files created on the same date, please remove them. The first two files will cause issues with anything related to the Landsmeet chamber.

1. den600ar_landsmeet_chamber.are
2. den600ar_landsmeet_chamber.lst
3. wedding_test.cub
4. wedding_test.cut

* If you happen to have an old version Epilogue NPC Changes mod by Cmessaz,
it contains an old test wedding version inside (by accident) and it will OVERRIDE
the actual scene. Please delete any file with the name
hnf_wedding.cut and hnf_wedding.cub
if these are found anywhere in your override folders.

* If you are using "Anyone can Marry Alistair", or any other lore altering mods,
the scene will still fire provided you are Female Human Noble from the beginning
of the game.
There are several reasons for this:
- Fergus leads his sister to the altar.
- I plan to create lore friendly endings for all Origins.
- Other Origins and body types will cause problematic visual issues.

* If you save the game at the end-game Landsmeet Chamber with this mod installed,
and you have uninstalled it, to complete the game with this savegame
you may click on the *left* guard. The right one will not appear.

* No known conflicts.



Performance Issues:
===============

I have done everything within my power to make this a premium experience,
but as a result, there is a slight chance that some users may experience difficulties.
This scene may not play well on certain systems. (excessive lag)

While I am not sure of the exact cause, in order to help ease any
possible frustration, I am providing you with a Test Cutscene program.

Before installing the mod, please unrar the "Cutscene Performance Test" file
included in the package to see if your system is compatible.
You will be provided with a youtube link for performance comparison
after viewing the test scene. If your performance is similar to what appears there,
the scene will work as intended. If it is anything less I cannot guarantee your experience
will be the best it can be.

Please accept my apologies if this indeed happens to be the case.
I have a relatively old computer and it runs very well for me, so I hadn't
thought this would even be an issue.

Installation:
========

Use Modmanager to uninstall any previous version.

Install the new Dazip file with DA Updater

How to use DAupdater:
- Daupdater.exe is located in your

Dragon Age installation folder, Dragon Agebin_ship directory.

- Click on "Select DAZips"
- Choose the directory where you downloaded the mod
- Select the new version, Click "open"
- Then Select the mod in the field (colored blue)
- Click on "Install Selected"

Uninstall:
=======

Use mod manager to uninstall.

Dress Selection:
===========

You may download the "Wedding dress collection" separately located in
the same download site.

Enjoy!
