How to use the EET_modConverter


Ikki

Recommended Posts

More precisely if the mod to convert has a TP2 and a mod folder, where should I put those ?
and then when running "setup-EET_modConverter" does it require some configuration before ?

Thanks, EET is awesome, it is for me the reason to actualy replay the game

This is how I used it - (I cannot find the reference anymore where it is described in your gamefolder/EET/docs/Modder's Notes.html), so this is from memory

 

Move the EET_modConverter from EET directly into gamefolder - same with the setup.exe for it.

Create EET_modConverter/input.

Put a copy of your mod including its tp2 into the input folder.

Run the converter,exe and make the selection fitting to your mod.

Afterwards you will find a folder EET_modConverter/output >>> this will contain all the files (in the original structure of your mod) that the tool found for changing. You will also find a detailed log that lists each and every change the tool proposes for your mod. If you find those changes valid, you can use the files in output as a replacement of the original files for you EET installation - or you modify them if you find any change incorrect.

 

Note - I used an older version of EET when I did the conversion of a number of mods, I cannot guarantee if my method is still valid.

For the conversion of a BG2EE mod it work perfectly, but the following error pop when converting a BGEE mod

i just try with drizztsaga

Those two mods are already available for EET, no need to work on them. Check EET mod campatibility list for links to the right version,

Yes, but i forget to install them on BGEE

 

The vault and TGC1e are BGEE mod but K4thos has created patch that allow them to be installed on BG2EE after EET installation

Same goes for your revison of NTotSCEET and it's very handy to be able to install them after EET

 

But I didn't find such patch for drizztsaga and bg1npc that give them native EET support,

 

And why is the conversion failing ? the converter should be able to convert BGT mod to EET

Mods affecting both BG1 and BG2 are the most tricky because you can't just trust EET_modConverter to handle conversion automatically - in most cases that would result in modifying both BG1 and BG2 stuff, which is not intended. However you can still use the output change-log in order to decide which changes are warranted, especially if you know the code well. The preferable way to deal with incompatibilities between platform in such mods is using cross-platform coding variables. In short - no automated solution exists for converting BGT mods into EET mods.

in the last release, the converter seems to fail converting BGEE mod because the macro EET_PCU_match_res is not define in macro.tph ???

 

Does someone have an older version of EET with an older version of the mod converter ?

 

I try converting some mod by hand, but it's no fun
