Is this a Release Candidate or is it a final release? I was just about to post my X20 update for 10.5 Final when I saw this.

This is just a release candidate and there will certainly several more before the final is out!

Yes, please do. We know there are a lot of generic NPC lines that we can never use, but if we overlooked something deeper in the files it might be worth the effort!
Okay, here's test version of script.
Open .bat file and edit two lines of content dir and your UP's Level Entity Lists, read notes below them and then run.

If you want the most objective checking possible, you should unpack and copy into %ContentDir% *ALL* .DLG, .Lips and .Vcd stuff from both the original game (better just unpack all VPKs) and your patch. It will make program read through the VCD and LIPs content which may also use some DLG lines. Otherwise, program will check only links in DLG files and even may confuse  rather than help. See resulting .log after work is done.

I just ran this and it doesn't really help, it gives all lines not linked which includes all empty lines and checking them would be a waste of time! Can you please improve this so only the lines that contain dialogue are listed?

Avoiding of detecting empty lines was the first thing I took care of! For me it works fine. Didn't you remove sfk.exe file which must be near .bat one? And can you please show your resulting log file?

@Wesp,
I've improved the tool a bit, also adding a search for missing audio voiceovers in all lines.
This will help to skip unrestored lines that have no sound, or make new voiceover for them :)
Make sure all sound\character\dlg (both original and UP's) audio is extracted and placed into content dir under it's correct paths, otherwise you will get false positives!

Also here's my full log in case you won't able to make the tool work... You might be surprised how much lines are there, but program can't know if some of them used by some other way (i.e. via Python scripts, via VData definitions, hardcoded in DLLs, or under other line number as duplicate, or somehow else). For now it search only hard links in DLG, audio, maps and float lip files. So you should first visually check which lines are you indeed remember as in-use, and remove from log.

I just tested Psycho-A's new tool but I am not sure if I used it correctly.

It didn't seem to work for me as it reported some dialogue that I know from the original game as unused. I am not sure why. I could be doing something wrong.

It did find some interesting stuff though. I am not sure if they are unused, but at least I don't remember them.

There is some dialogue involving Heather I never heard of. (Not very interesting since many of them are generic lines, but it is there.)

Also there is some dialogue I am not sure what to make of. It involves "ash_lookalike" and "hostess", I am not sure if they are in the game or not, but I don't remember them.

@endthewars, have you all game stuff unpacked from original game and the Unoff. patch into content directory you defined? Also, try the new version I posted ten minutes ago (it should work better), or just compare our logs I attached above too.

I did test the last one you posted (you posted it just as I was testing it, so I canceled it and used the new one.)

I did unpack everything and merged it with UP just as you said.

I didn't notice the logs you posted at the time, but checking that our logs match 95%.

I was just saying, some dialogue thats actually used in the game is reported as being unused (even in the log you posted), just check lines "newscaster.dlg" and "prince1.dlg". You know those are not unused at all. But maybe they are doubles of the used lines or something, I am not sure about that.

I was able to add reading links from python scripts, so at least several dozen of lines will be excluded. Python folders must be placed into content dir too.

@endthewars, you should unpack and copy stuff from original game BEFORE you copy UP's content, otherwise it will be overwritten and you will miss almost all restorations that were done.

I did that. That's exactly what I wrote.

I compared our logs again and I can certainly say our logs match near perfectly. Mine just didn't have that single line from VV for some reason. (that's why I thought they were different)


Did adding Python folders to the search solved the issue I mentioned? If so cool :)

What do you mean by content dir? I think the easiest way would be if the tool would work from the SDK VPKconten folder, as everything should be there if one has it extracted. I will not mess up my UP folder by extracting useless stuff there!

VPKContent folder by default doesn't suppose extracting mp3, lip or vcd files that needed by tool. Also it doesn't contain Python stuff.
For you it's better to make some new separated folder, and then use it to extract original game VPKs into, copy original python/ and sound/ dirs, then copy dlg/, sound/ and python/ dirs from your UP project here too. This is done only once, and it simpler than confusing tool with three game paths or even add VPK extractor if something is still kept packed.

That's a huge mess, I rather check out the log you provided :)!

FYI, the BUP download link in Bloodlines External Links seems to be 10.5 beta.
Trust me, most of the names I have been called you can't translate in any language...they're not even real words as much as a succession of violent images.
