The Linux User's Guide to Installing Mods on the Enhanced Editions


Recommended Posts

I know this thread is old, but I am just coming back form a while and have been itching to play BGEE again. It is just that now I am on Linux and have not played BG on linux before. My Steam version installed fine and works great! I would like to install a few mods though and reading through these instructions have led to some questions. As we know Linux is a case sensitive OS and these instructions were written in 2017 I think. With the Linux version of Weidu, are these instructions still a need? or has the Linux version of Weidu been updated to reflect the case issue? The only mods I want are really just Ascension, Tweaks Anthology, and ScS, but would hate to go through the above steps if I no longer need to and find out I get some errors, so have to figure out how to roll-back.

I'm using Pop OS! (based off of the latest Ubuntu version (19?) and have the Steam versions of BGEE nad BG2EE installed.

Best all and Happy Easter!

I followed these instructions using a case folded "Baldur's Gate Enhanced Edition" steam folder. Everything seems to be working fine, I'm able to install mods with "weinstall" but for some reason I'm always getting the same error when I try to install stratagems.

 

weidu --log "setup-stratagems.debug" "stratagems/setup-stratagems.tp2"
[weidu] WeiDU version 24600

Press ENTER to exit.

If I manually edit the tp2 to not require @0 then it will complain with the next translation. I can't check right this second but I believe I don't have this issue if I try to install stratagems in windows. Any idea of what could be wrong?

 I had the same problem when I used weidu 246 (from weidu-git from the arch user repository).

I switched to weidu 242 (from weidu-bin again from the arch user repository) and now I get further in the installation, but every part fails like this:

note I followed the original instruction (so with a ntfs partition)

When I try to compile weidu 245 myself I get an error, so I can't try that. As I am a bit out of my depth compiling, can you try it with an older version of weidu?

I just tried weidu-bin (242) based on your suggestion and I get the same error you did.

Didn't even occur to me that it could be something related to weidu since I'm able to install every mod in my list with weidu-git except SCS. I was thinking on posting on the SCS github/forums to see if anyone has any input. I guess I could try compiling weidu myself to see. I'll post here if I figure it out.

So I manually went to the weidu github and downloaded the latest release and that one seems to be working. So maybe it's a problem with the aur version after all. I can't sit down and test it all right now but if you do so let me know how it goes.

Guest Error trying to play BG2EE

Hello All,

I have followed the "Linux users guide to installing mods" on my Linux machine (ubuntu) and BGEE works but BG2EE does not. When I click on PLAY, I get "An error occurred while updating Baldur's Gate II: Enhanced Edition". I am fairly certain I followed step by step. The game worked just before I did these steps. Here are the steps I executed on my Linux box.

fallocate -l 30G bg_modbox.img

mkfs.jfs -O bg_modbox.img

mkdir /mnt/bgmodbox

mount bg_modbox.img /mnt/bgmodbox/

mkdir /mnt/bgmodbox/{bgee,bg2ee}

mv ~/.steam/debian-installation/steamapps/common/Baldur\'s\ Gate\ Enhanced\ Edition/* /mnt/bgmodbox/bgee

mv ~/.steam/debian-installation/steamapps/common/Baldur\'s\ Gate\ II\ Enhanced\ Edition/* /mnt/bgmodbox/bg2ee

rmdir ~/.steam/debian-installation/steamapps/common/Baldur\'s\ Gate\ Enhanced\ Edition

rmdir ~/.steam/debian-installation/steamapps/common/Baldur\'s\ Gate\ II\ Enhanced\ Edition

ln -s /mnt/bgmodbox/bgee ~/.steam/debian-installation/steamapps/common/Baldur\'s\ Gate\ Enhanced\ Edition

ln -s /mnt/bgmodbox/b2gee ~/.steam/debian-installation/steamapps/common/Baldur\'s\ Gate\ II\ Enhanced\ Edition

Would someone know if BG2EE changed somehow so these steps no longer work or is there something I am missing? BGEE works fine, it is only BG2EE that no longer runs.


Best Regards,

Kev
