BG:EE override order


Recommended Posts

BGEE has a slightly different override order than other IE games.


crossposted from here.



For anyone interested, this is the definitive override order of BGEE:


1. GAME\Movies (overrides all others)

2. GAME\Lang\XYZ\Movies

3. USER\Characters

4. USER\Portraits

5. GAME\Sounds

6. GAME\Lang\XYZ\Sounds

7. GAME\Scripts

8. GAME\Override (is overriden by all others)


GAME = ...\Baldur's Gate Enhanced Edition\Data\00766

USER = X:\Users\XXXXX\Documents\Baldur's Gate - Enhanced Edition (at least on windows)


Files in the GAME\Lang\XYZ directories only override others if XYZ is the currently set language.


These are ALL the overrides, ie. directories with similar names in different locations will be ignored. E.g. GAME\Portraits or USER\Scripts will be ignored.


Also of interest is that the type of files in overrides does not matter. You can put scripts into the Sounds override and it will override the scripts and vice versa.
