Linux installation

Recommended Posts

Posted (edited)

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

Do you have the Siege of the Dragonspear DLC, if so, you need to "extract" the expansion, which means you ought to install the modmerger before you can install mods. Here's a link to all that.

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

Did you start the game ? As in, you need to do that to "select" the in-game language, which is then set to be the default language ...

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.

The weidu programs support forums are here... dialogue.tlk and dialog.tlk are a bit different ... there's some Tolower uses in weidu. And a lot of other things I can find in the change-log.

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

Erhm, did you check this out ?

I am afraid you might need to do more than just... fortunately I am on Windows, so I don't need to do any off that. 😋 .. cause I would be lost too.

This was the most convenient way from all the options I tried.
