EasyTutu installation error - Missing area files

Guest Darwin

Recommended Posts

When I attempt to install the latest version of EasyTutu on my computer I get an error claiming that there are missing area files from my installation of Baldur's Gate. I've searched high and low for a solution, and double checked that I followed the installation procedure correctly.


1. I installed Baldur's Gate with ToSC.

2. I patched BG1 with the official patch from Bioware.

3. I installed Baldur's Gate 2 SoA.

4. I installed the Baldur's Gate 2 ToB expansion.

5. I patched BG2 ToB with the official ToB patch from Bioware.

6. I attempted to install EasyTutu and WHAMMO! Installation error...


The error message I get is as follows:


Files missing from your BG1 installation:

I downloaded the archive and extracted the files into the data folder, but as soon as I tried another installation of BgTutu I was prompted with another error message: more files missing!


I checked the CDs (I have the 6 CD version) and found a good amount of the missing files, but not all of them.


This is the list of files that I'm apparently missing.

I am 100% sure that I clicked every single option on when I performed the custom installation, yet these files still elude me (I did 3 re-installs just to make sure I hadn't missed anything). Would it be possible to get another archive uploaded with these ones?

You can't find the missing files in the CDs? That IS weird. Try searching and copying all of them again, they SHOULD be all there. I have the 6 CD with TotSC as well and did an Easytutu reinstall just a few days ago and all worked fine after manually copying all missing files.

I did exactly that, and I found the numbers missing, but the filetype was .cbf, rather than .bif as requested by the program. I'll try to manually switch the type later today when I get home. I'll make a post and tell you the results as soon as I'm done =)

Got fed up after a few minutes doing the manual changes, I'll borrow another copy of BG from a friend and check for the missing files on his disc. Hopefully that'll solve my little issue. :)
