1. DESCRIPTION

This mod is an update to Cleitanious' excellent 300 Lore Dialogue mod that was released two years ago.

Cleitanious' latest and original version brought 60+ new topics and 120+ lines of dialogue.
This updated version brings around 370 additional topics and much more dialog lines.

You can now talk to NPCs about their skills, the provinces of Tamriel, the guild they belong to, the different drinks sold in pubs, the creatures of Cyrodiil, asking an alchemist about every ingredient and their locations and many more topics.

To see what topics are added and what changes have been made, refer to the version changes below.


2. REQUIREMENTS/RECOMMENDATIONS

Required: - The latest version of Oblivion
- Oblivion Script Extender version 0012 or above (http://obse.silverlock.org/)
- OBSE Elys Universal Silent Voice v. 0.93 or above (http://www.tesnexus.com/downloads/file.php?id=16622)

Recommendation: Because the topic listing will be much longer, I highly recommend the use of a mod that allows you to see more dialogue topics on the list like DarNified UI.

To bring even more diversity to the NPCs’ dialogue, I recommend to use Kragenirs Death Quest by Povuholo and Malchik. KDQ adds not only new exciting quests, but also expands the dialogue of the NPCs in settlements and in the wilderness. (http://tesnexus.com/downloads/file.php?id=26219)

3. INSTALLING/UNINSTALLING THE PLUG-IN

Simply extract the .esp file to your Oblivion/Data folder.

FOR USERS OF ORIGINAL VERSION OR VERSION 2.0

To avoid a problem where every topic show up on any NPC, you must do the following:

1. Delete 300_Lore_Dialogue.esp
2. Load Oblivion and save your game
3. Activate 300_Lore_Dialogue_Updated

Also, since my version uses OBSE Elys USV for the mute voices, run the “LoreDialog unSetup.bat” file that came with the original version to remove the silent voices generated by it.
After, you can also remove these files installed by the original version :

- Optional_mp3 folder
- LoreDialog unSetup.BAT
- LoreDialogSetup.BAT
- Silence.mp3


To uninstall, remove the ESP.

4. PLAYING THE PLUG-IN

In the Oblivion Launcher, activate:
"300_Lore_Dialogue_Updated.esp"

In-game, find any NPC and notice the difference in the number topics.

Start talking! ;-)

5. SAVE GAMES

You do not need to start a new game to see the changes.

6. CONFLICTS/KNOWN ERRORS

- Users of the original or 2.0 version will need to do a quick fix to avoid the problem with all topics being listed on every NPC. (Refer to the Installation section above)

- Users of Windfall mod have experienced problems running both mods together with Windfall dialogue not showing up. No solution has been found yet.


7. LEGAL STUFF/DISCLAIMER

Ask me first before distributing the mod elsewhere. That is all.

8. CHANGELOG
