    Hullo! I stated in my new Fixpack readme (get it at qwinnmods.com, Nexus mod page here:

    http://www.nexusmods.com/dragonage/mods/4689/?

    ...that our mods were incompatible based on a user report. However, when I actually tried it myself, turns out the signpost and the new location show up just fine, but I'm getting the same stuck-on-loading issue that people have been reporting here since 2013. Even if I disable my own mod and force load (making Alley of Murders the *only* mod I have running) I still get stuck on the loading screen of the first area. Has any reason ever been found for why this happens? I'd love to be able to revise my readme and say that our mods are compatible. Thanks for any help.

    I did not see any dazip in the download, incidentally, so I used DAModder instead of the daupdater.exe that the mod description says to use.
     
    EDIT:  Renaming the .zip download to .dazip and then using daupdater.exe seems to have solved the problem.  I know .dazip files are no long considered a valid upload file type, which is why I have to package mine all up as .7z or .zip.  I suspect .dazip was valid at one point and that was changed, and perhaps the filename of the upload was automatically changed to .zip at that time?  At any rate, renaming the .zip download to .dazip and using daupdater.exe got me into the Alley just fine.  I haven't progressed beyond that yet.  Will test more and update here if it turns out they work well together.

    EDIT 2: I am very happy to announce that Qwinn's Ultimate Dragon Age: Origins Fixpack and Alley of Murders are 100% compatible. And I'm also happy to have finally provided a solution to the infinite load screen issue. I hope you'll all enjoy both mods

      In response to post #52438528.



      Spoiler:

      That's odd, it downloads as a .dazip for me.
       
      Edit: I read that Chrome changes dazip files to zip. So be mindful of that.

    I'm so sorry I never posted before, but I'm so greatful for this mod I had a lot of fun playing it, and was especially impressed by the (can't remember the character's name whups :/) Tranquil mage. He's motivations seemed to be more than just those of a man without emotion, and I remember it so clearly to this day (I first played this mod around 2014/2012). Thank you! <3

    Hi! I installed the mod and clicked the noticeboard, and the new area in Denerim appeared. However, when I try to go to this area, I'm stuck on an infinite loading screen. I tried uninstalling and reinstalling, even using a different device, but it still isn't working. Does anyone know how to solve this problem? Thanks very much.

    This was a pretty good mod, but I have two problems with it (Spoilers):

    1) I believed that the elf was telling the truth, but wanted to keep looking for the real killer who was obviously not the smuggler. The dwarf attacked me as soon as I said I would not agree to go after the smuggler.

    2) There is no option to persuade the man at the end about the blood mage. With Master Coercion and 108 Cunning, I should be able to persuade him the moon is made of Orlesian Cheese.

      If you follow the blood mage path you will uncover evidence about who is the killer. You probably can't tell the guard because its a templar matter and you don't have a body given how far away everything is so he can't tell f you are telling the truth or not thats why you need to kill either the smuggler or the guards target (i forget his name)

      Harsen is prejudiced and set in his ways - he is too stubborn to believe anything outside of his pre-conceived notions of who the guilty party might be. You might be able to very well convince him the moon is made of Orlesian cheese, but that's not going to change his opinion on elves. He was deliberately written to make people frustrated and angry at his behaviour and show that it's not always possible to get the "perfect" outcome.

    I won't lie I was a little disappointed with this mod. I felt it had a lot of potential that it failed to deliver and was much to short. I finished it in just over 10 minutes no including the really long battle at the end (won't say which one to avoid spoilers). Still a good mod but I felt it was to short and could have been done a little bit better. Sorry

      Yeah I was really disappointed too. I tried to get a refund but EA kept telling me this was Free content made by a freelance modder created on their own time with no monetary compensation. Then the EA support guy actually had the audacity to tell me if I didn't like it I should create my own mod using the tools available. Can you believe that guy?

      You're joking... right?
      If so, I apologize. It wouldn't be the first time I've been told that I have no concept of sarcasm.

      @ Tikkidew

      Are you really implying that you can't criticize something just because it's free? That doesn't seem right. I assume modders take pride in their work and want to improve, so it seems like it would be counter-productive to censor criticism. Why do you have a problem with what he said? Which, by the way, he did so politely.

      @Th3D0ct04
      In order to finish the mod in 10 minutes, I imagine you must be skipping most of the dialogue and killing all enemies extremely quickly - so if you're barrelling through, then yes, it will be short. Also keep in mind that this was the first fully-voiced campaign add-in - and was by design only meant to be a short quest.

      I would be interested to hear why you think it "didn't deliver", as I tried very hard to make sure that the tone and writing of the quest was very much in line with the original style of Dragon Age.

      @runtheplacered
      I'm happy to receive criticism where it is productive and will actually enable me to improve my content, but unfortunately saying "it's too short" or "it could have been better" is not really something I consider useful information for me, especially given I believe the playthrough was somewhat rushed.

    I am unable to load into the very first section after accepting the quest. I'm stuck on an infinite loading screen. Any thoughts for a work around? I would really love to play it.

    Congratulations, great job. could make a patch with subtitles in Spanish? I am willing to help if needed, would be a great contribution to Hispanic users who understand little English.
