A girl won in a card game
This walkthrough was created using Build 14 Beta 02-1 it may differ from other versions of the game.
Pieter Boelen’s explanation of how quest triggered:-
By the looks of it, the quest is triggered if a player attribute reaches 40 and you need at least 100 gold.
This attribute increases for every time you win a game in the gambling interface and it increases quicker if you've got a high luck skill. It decreases if you lose a game.
And by the looks of it, it also decreases for every move you make, which seems confused to me.
Thanks for your explaniation of the trigger- I think I understand it.
When you play with the gamblers in the taverns
The gambling interface monitors how well you play,
awards points for wins,
deducts points if you loose,
if you play badly (need lots of moves to win) it deducts points
the number of points awarded is higher if you have a high Luck skill.
100 gold is the minimum bet in the gambling interface.
When you get to 40 points the quest is triggered and offered by the gamblers in the taverns
However there is no way of knowing how near or far away from the 40 points you are.
Oh... you probably CAN see what the "counter" is on. Just execute this through console:
LogIt ("Girl in card game counter = " + pchar.quest.gambling);
WARNING - This Quest will ONLY trigger in the taverns from the original game, but not any of the mod-added ones. SO it will only work on Barbados, Jamaica, Martinique, Bonaire, Grenada, Puerto Rico and Nevis Pirate Settlement.
