WELCOME TO THE ANDERS ROMANCE DIALOGUE OVERHAUL MOD
Part two of, lbr, a long string of Anders mods to come.
1. Anders Friendship Romance Final Kiss
Adds a final kiss to the Anders Friendship Romance in the Gallows, as occurs in the Rivalry Romance.
2. Anders Tells Female Hawke About Karl
Adds an exchange about Karl to the female Hawke version of the Anders romance sex scene in the Estate.
3. Dissent Romance-Specific Line Flag Repair
Repairs the broken flag check at the end of the initial conversation with Anders in “Dissent” so as to fire off the romance-specific, mage/non-mage specific lines previously blocked.
No Rivalry for Not Flirting with Anders
Takes away the Rivalry gain for turning Anders down when he first flirts with you, because it’s hard enough to not accidentally romance the same character on a new playthrough, thank you.
VANILLA VERSION VS. SPORK EDIT: A GUIDE
The Vanilla version of this file contains all of the above features and no more. There is an alternate version of this mod containing all of the above features and several others that is known as the “Spork edit”, so named because it was loosely based on the edits suggested by @invisiblespork to even out some of the stranger gender-based differences between the f!Hawke and m!Hawke romance routes.
While not all of the original requests were feasible, this edit does contain several features intended to make the f!Hawke romance route a bit less with the whole “this is going to be a disaster and you will only get hurt” thing. It also changes the Anders response to “Don’t tell me these things. I might have to lock you up to keep them off you” flirt for m!Hawkes to the line for f!Hawkes, as it was very strange that Anders just kind of skipped over that for m!Hawkes. If these features sound like ones that would appeal to you, you should instead install the “Spork edit” instead.
Unzip this folder into your “Override” folder. If you are not certain where to find this folder, go to your Documents folder, then find the Bioware folder, then find the Dragon Age 2 folder, then find the Packages folder, then the Core folder, and then the Override folder will be in here. If you do not see an Override folder and you are sure you are in the right place, you may create one. Please note that you should install this mod under the path available from your Documents folder and NOT under the path available through your Program Files folder, as that will NOT work. To verify, this is the same Dragon Age 2 folder that your user screenshots will be stored in.
NOTE: I will literally personally guide anyone who has trouble installing this mod through the installation steps if you need. Please don’t hesitate to message me or pop into my inbox if you have trouble, or, lbr, mention it in the tags on a reblog and I will mysteriously appear like someone who is definitely not note stalking this post.
If you have previously installed my Anders Friendship Romance Final Kiss mod, you MUST uninstall that before/overwrite the file when installing this mod. This mod DOES contain the Friendship Romance End Kiss, so you will NOT lose that functionality when installing this!
SUGGESTED SUPPLEMENTAL MODS
To complement this mod, I suggest a few additional mods:
Hide Weapons Mod There is currently a small issue I have not been able to fix where Anders’ staff will suddenly appear during his Karl lines before disappearing again. I was advised to upload the mod even with this issue, as many people requested it, but if it bothers you then this mod should take care of it!
Romance Outfit for Anders You may notice from my images and videos that Anders here has an Amell crest on his armband. This outfit, along with many other Anders features, is available as part and parcel of the Freedom’s Call mod. Currently, this outfit must be installed manually after the romance confirmation, but the ever-amazing @sapphim’s Timeskip Framework is intended to eventually include this as an automatic change, so keep an eye out for an automatic version in the not too distant future!
