SoD 2.3 and BG2EE Best Install Advice?

Recommended Posts

I havent been keeping up with all of the ins and outs of the mod community. I have been trying to do a fresh install on my MacBook Pro with a few mods including EET, SR, DR, SCS, etc. I have been runn8ng into several errors. It has been suggested the reason is because the two games are out of sync or 2.5 is causing issues.


So, should I be using beta or retail versions? Will it work if I have SoD 2.3 and BG2EE 2.5? Just trying to figure out the best way to proceed with the games in their current release states.

retail, never use betas. Quote from readme:

Core EET component requires "clean" BG2:EE installation with latest patch (currently v2.5.16.6). Translations and voice-overs are of course allowed but installing other (especially larger) mods that changes DLG and BCS files, before EET, may cause problems with later patching, so it's better to keep the installation as clean as possible.

The BG:EE + Siege of Dragonspear installation with latest patch (currently v2.3.67.3) should be either "clean" installation or with any combination of mods mentioned in section 1 of this list.

If you use Steam or GOG version of Siege of Dragonspear than you first need to use modmerge tool in your BG:EE + SoD directory. This utility released by Beamdog merges your Steam/GOG zip based DLC into something WeiDU can use. It only affects above mentioned platforms - you don't need to use it if you bought the game on Beamdog store.

SoD installation contains all BG:EE resources, so if you have expansion installed in separate directory, you should point to it during EET installation, rather than BG:EE.
