Installing Fixpack for IWD2 on Linux

Recommended Posts

I've installed IWD2 on Linux using PlayOnLinux and a GOG game. I want to also install the IWD2 Ease of use mod on top of that so that my dex-based monk can take the Weapon Finesse Feat. See http://www.gog.com/forum/icewind_dale_series/dex_monk_weapon_finesse_feat

 

I was told to install Weidu as a first step. I thought that it would offer options to install various mods so I followed this: http://www.shsforums.net/topic/29361-linux-and-weidu-mods/

 

Weidu installed but there was no dialogue to install other mods on top of it. What should I do next? I looked at http://weidu.org/iwd2.html#iwd2-ease, but the RAR file links to a directory called /old that can't be right?

weidu is an interpreter, so use it to run setup-$modname.tp2 in the mod dir. That's exactly what the bundled exes do on the other os.

1. Copied the tp2 as well as the iwd-ease subdirectory from the rar archive to the mod sub-directory.

2. Ran "weinstall Setup-IWD2-Ease.tp2" in the mod sub-directory

3. Need to test the result. There were no prompts as to which part of the mod I wanted to install, so I think something went wrong.

1. You need to lowercase the mod contents. WeiDU ships with tolower for that.

2. That'd be "weinstall iwd2-ease".

Thanks you two. Will retry tomorrow

EDIT: Worked as suggested by Wisp above.

 

Note 1: Contents of RAR needs to be copied to the main game directory (see README in archive) for installation, and not the ./mod directory as I thought earlier.

 

Note 2: Relating to my first post. Yes, the RAR files are in a directory named "old", but you can compare version numbers to the EXE versions to check that you are up to date.
