    Hiya folks, looks like things have been going awry with FDI since the latest update. Sorry about that, and sorry for being away for so long. I got hit by a car in November so that's really limited what I could do. But I'm up to being on the computer now, so I'll see what I can do. Pretty fortuitous timing, actually, checking in on the mod as it's having problems.

    So, here's the deal: Give me a little while to get situated and comfortable with editing FDI again. It's a tad overwhelming to come back after so long and see such a huge mod with all these languages and everything. I understand there's problems with Nuka World, Survival mode, and the High Res Patch, so I've got some targets to look at. In the meantime, give me a little while, and then I'll be back to fix things. I can't really give you an exact date, but I promise you won't be waiting anything outrageous like six months or anything.

    Okay? Okay! See you guys soon!

    For those experiencing string problems, try removing the .DLstrings and .ILstrings files that FDI adds. If you have those files added by another mod, keep them, but if they're from FDI, try deleting them.

    Full Dialogue Interface has been updated to Beta12, which extends support for the 1.7 patch to all languages. Furthermore, all alternate string files and the manual install package have also been updated.

    Shamelessly copying from the changelog:
    * Updated all languages to support the new 1.7 patch.
    * Updated the installer to install support for the Vault-Tec Workshop DLC.
    * Extended support for the Lite version to the Vault-Tec Workshop DLC. English only.
    * Fixed a few remaining typos in the English strings.

    Finally, because the recent patch changed the location of the main string files from Data\Strings to the Interface BA2, I'm considering converting Full Dialogue Interface into a BSA+ESP combo, with the new files packed away in a BA2 archive and a dummy plugin to determine their load order. This has the advantage of no longer messing with the Strings folder, which can cause problems if NMM hiccups or if instructions are followed incorrectly. However, this would also mean that achievements would be disabled for those using FDI because of the addition of a plugin. Yes, I know there's a mod that re-enables them, but that might be a concern for some users. The shift would also require rewriting all of the documentation, which means I'd need volunteers from every language again. Finally, it would mean lots of load order troubleshooting would take the place of Strings folder troubleshooting. The current rule of thumb on the Xbox version (which uses a BSA+ESP format) is to load FDI's plugin last, but load order strategies never survive contact with the enemy, so that could prove to be a new avenue of trouble.

    If you have an opinion on whether or not FDI should make the change to a BSA+ESP format, leave a comment.

    Have fun!
    - Ciro

      I would love to have the option to have both. Maybe BA2 + ESP as main download, and Loose files for advanced users of some sort?

      I'd say like TheMagician16, IF that's not too much trouble keeping up updating both of these methods.
      That would be great, it's always nice to have an option (whenever possible) without an ESP (due to the 255 limitation, some of us might be reaching).

      I see the need to convert this into a BSA+ESP when it's already working as-is.

      With the mod in loose file format it will either work 100% of the time... Or it won't work at all. Load order conflicts will always be something people have to be mindful of regardless, but in loose file format it's an all-or-nothing approach. On top of that, I see no reason to have this mod (that's again already working as-is) eat another space in the load order when it doesn't really need to. The Fallout modding community has a terrible habbit of needing a bazillion compatibility patches to get many small mods to work together. It seems like Fallout 4 will unfortunately follow suit, but time will tell.

      I'd like to see an ESP version, as currently I'm unable to get this running without a CTD from the main menu via *any* method, NMM or manual. And I detest the Wheel of Unfortunate Dialogue. (Yes I tried All The Methods and the BA2 version).

      Did you ever find a fix for the LOOKUP error on exit? I have the same problem and still haven't seen a fix or patch to FDI to prevent that problem.

      Glad to see you doing good and your feeling much better, Believe Me, I know what you have been through all to well, it's not fun being made to imitate superman. I know I'm a bit late, I used your mod on XB1 but I want to get FO4 running on PC and found your mod just recently, In my honest opinion, you might be better off going with the B2A+esp. if not only for ease of install for many, but If you can also make manual option available, well that is if you have not done so already.

      But I did have A question, other than the main Beta12 install, there two updated files, I take it that they both need or must be installed, yeah this maybe a Duh "Q" but I'm sure where you are in process of making corrections and simply whether or not you are doing the B2A+esp rout or not.

      Thank you again for making this, I really like it, Kudos.

      +1 for BA2 + esp

      For those with a lot of mods, a lot of the little ones contain nothing but game settings. You can collect those and put them all into an esp of your own (bonus: you can tweak those settings to exactly match your preference while doing so), OR if you can't edit an esp you can use this method.

      Here are some useful settings I have found or borrowed

      @ Cirosan :

      So we should remove 10 out of 15 string files that your mod added??
      Why not just remove them and repost? i don't understand.

    At the request of several users, I've disabled bug reports for FDI, at least for the time being. As I've explained, 95% of reports were NMM issues (not mod issues) or were otherwise so vague as to be useless (lacking any steps to reproduce a bug, etc.). Add to that that I simply don't have the time to comb through all the reports that get sent in and I've decided it's for the best.

    From here on out: IF YOU HAVE A PROBLEM WITH THE MOD, THE VERY FIRST THING YOU SHOULD DO IS READ THE "TROUBLESHOOTING" SECTION IN THE DESCRIPTION. 99% of problems can be solved by following the instructions there. If that still doesn't help you, post in the comments and other users may be able to help you out - and, after a certain length of time, I'll be able to chime in as well if the issue persists.

    I apologize for any inconvenience this may cause.

    Regarding translations:
    Currently, the documentation for the Chinese and Spanish versions are Google Translated. If you are a native speaker of those languages and you would like to help, the text that still needs to be translated can be found here:

    http://pastebin.com/QCd1vCnu

    To the best of my knowledge, the ten languages currently supported by FDI are all the languages Fallout 4 was officially released in. However, I could definitely be wrong - so if you know of any languages FO4 supports that aren't being supported by FDI, let me know. I'm always willing to add more translations.

    Further, if you can provide the .strings files for your language(s), that would greatly help. Translating the documentation into your language would also help immensely (the pastebin link above has the text that needs to be translated).

    To go into more detail about how to send me your language's .strings files:
    1. Go to your Fallout 4 directory (usually found in C:\Program Files (x86)\Steam\steamapps\common\Fallout 4 )
    2. Go into the Data folder.
    3. Go into the Strings folder.
    4. Inside, you should see three files, all named "Fallout4_[your language]" - there's a .strings file, a .ILstrings file, and a .DLstrings file. Copy these three files into a separate place on your computer.
    5. Use an online hosting service (such as Mega, Mediafire, Dropbox, and so on) to upload the files. Then, send me the link to download those files. Preferably send the link in a PM.

    Thank you all for your continued aid in helping FDI support as many users as possible.

      Can't seem to find the strings folder (maybe because I play in English?)

    Unfortunately, I've received reports that NMM is still not handling installation/uninstallation properly in certain cases. Please note that this is a bug with NMM and not with the mod itself. NMM and Full Dialogue Interface are separate entities - I manage FDI, but I'm not on the NMM staff and I can't do anything about NMM issues myself.

    However, I have added a Troubleshooting section to the mod's description, which covers a few common problems users have with NMM and how to solve them. If you're experiencing problems, try referring to the Troubleshooting section. That being said, there are reports that running NMM as an admin is a possible fix, so do try that first.

    To any users still having issues with the NMM installer, please follow the link provided by DuskDweller below and post a detailed description of your problem there so that the NMM development team is aware of the problem.

    Here's what DuskDweller, Nexus staff, wished for me to communicate to users having issues installing Full Dialogue Interface with NMM:
    "I think this is a generic issue with the NMM setup and their systems, I advise you to tell anyone having issues with NMM to open a report in the proper section instead of bothering you:"
    http://forums.nexusmods.com/index.php?/tracker/project-3-mod-manager-open-beta/

    Finally, if you keep your mods and your game install on separate drives, there is a possible solution, courtesy PhoeniixFiire:
    "I realized that there was a change to NMM that requires you to enable multi-hdd mode if the mods are to be stored on a different drive than the one the game is on. This was not the case a while back when I was playing skyrim so I never thought to check for something like this. Anyway, for those of you have CTDs right after installation, this may be the issue if your setup is similar to mine. I wish NMM would throw up an error message or something instead of just failing to install the mods (and deleting the files to be replaced).

    Manual installation negates this issue, but you can also solve it by 1) setting it up with multi-hdd enabled so NMM creates symlinks from the mod location to the game installation, or 2) setting it up so the mods are stored on the same hard drive as the game. It took a bit of fiddling but I got it working and the mod now installs fine, so it was a settings/NMM issue, not actually this mod at all."

      My Problem is that the game would CTD on startup if NMM deactivated it (I.E. Profile switching). The Problem is that I have everything on one hard-drive and I've always ran NMM as an admin, so the usual suspects aren't in play.

      I think I found a quick and dirty solution though. First, I had the mod disabled, then manually installed the "Uninstall Strings." This made NMM Overwrite the Backup strings with this mod on activation and replace the backup strings on deactivation.

      Just wanted to chime in my solution to my random CTDs at startup (with MO2) since installing the files manually didn't resolve it for me, neither did merging the DLCs/running as admin.

      I created a dummy ESP with all of the files loaded into a BA2 and it works! No more crashes at startup.

    Hello Cirosan,,
    Just recently downloaded this to try this, since I seen it used a lot in peoples video review...
    I used nmm ( updated) to download and its seems to working just fine , I play on pc with keyboard but and this is probably just me , I just assumed I'd be using the numpad section of the keyboard , but I see I need to the numbers along the top, that all good too, just I so used to using the numpad for a lot of thing ( just saying is all ) ..
    I downloaded to also use it with a heather cas mod I've not used before too,
    Endorsed Tracking Kudo'd ...and Thank you ..

      I'm curious too. I believe that this MOD is totally abandoned. At least XDI remains active and does not interfere with those players who have chosen to purchase Creation Club items.
      Since it was released a correction, which was not even made by the author of this MOD and works only for those who play in the original language, English.

      There are various dialogue-adding mods that simply don't work properly with XDI. Combat Zone Restored is one I've experienced firsthand, and I've been told Fusion City Rising (I think) is another. FDI generally plays better with them. XDI is more technically impressive, to be sure, but there are precious few mods that actually utilize its ability to use more than four dialogue choices, and, in the meantime, I can make FDI work alongside various other mods that XDI won't.

      XDI causes me CTD and is also very buggy. For instance, if you slightly turn away then look back your dialogue options will actually change, also once dialogue is finished, you get a split second where a new lot of dialogue pops up and you can actually select it AFTER the conversation has ended. Also, there's no controller support. As in X is sarcastic B is rude etc. It's just not as good as FDI.

    I'm getting frequent CTD's when speaking with certain characters, Paladin Dance for example. Could be some conflict but I can confirm it's this mod because when I disabled the dialogue worked just fine. Really a shame it's difficult to use the vanilla dialogue when it's so terrible.. Hopefully this gets updated again soon.
