Linux installation

Recommended Posts

Installed GOG version of BGEE, but now SCS?

I extracted the stratagems directory in /game (where chitin.key is), then run:

weinstall stratagems

and it complains about some dialog.tlk it can't find, but all those files are in the /lang directories. What's going on? Are there more precise instructions somewhere? thanks

No I don't have SoD, I'm just trying to install BGEE + stratagems + cdtweaks. I'll try to reinstall BGEE from scratch, maybe I messed up something. Or maybe is the lowercase issue I read about? Must stratagems/cdtweaks be lowercased on Linux? Thanks

Yes, I started and selected english. No change. It must be the lowercase thing because it looks for DIALOGUE.TLK, and existing files are lowercase.

Is anybody maintaining Linux WeiDU? Because I guess it's WeiDU that should ignore case for the files it looks for.

I'm giving up for now. NTFS doesn't work either. After symlinking dialog.tlk:
