Ok, I read the newest readme of Qwinns 'fix' pack and here is my opinion why
it isn't a real fixpack but rather a mixture of mostly well done fixes together
with other changes that aren't fixes or at least pretty subjective in interpretation.

The following list are just examples of items I don't agree on being fixes. It is not complete, as it would be too long
if I posted all items.
In square brackets my comments:

Spoiler!

[not a fix, rather a compatibility mod]

Spoiler!

[not a fix, rather a cosmetic change that might make sense, but still no fix]

Spoiler!

[my opinion: Vhailor carries a cursed axe for a reason: it is a part of him]

Spoiler!

[my opinion: the existing system is working as intended by the designers. Moreover it
goes conform with DnD rules (beside the always at least 1 HP issue, but that is imho intended by the designers as well).
The manual might as well be in error on this special issue]

Spoiler!

[my opinion: TNO functions in some ways similar to a F/M/T. And a F/M/T gets his best
THAC0, saves and attacks among the 3 classes.Imho, this is an intended design feature
that shouldn't be changed as part of a fix]

Spoiler!

[more a balance change than a fix]

[again, this only tries to balance the game, rather than being a bugfix]

Nice list Hannibal. I was planning on replaying through PST with the fixpack at some point but was always put off by all the tweaks that I thought shouldn't be core fixes. With this list it should be possible to just go through the Override directory and delete all the files affecting the issues you listed.

In my opinion this is too much of a hassle.
There are a lot more questionable fixes in Qwinn's pack. Just have a look for yourself.
Otherwise there ARE some nice fixes in this pack. Therefore it's a bit sad it's so mixed up.

I made the decision to just install Platter's fixes (which won't try to balance or change game mechanics, just plain bug fixes). It is not as thorough and not maintained anymore,
but I never had any issues in the game with it installed.
