Install order help

Recommended Posts

Hi - I've been working on getting my modded version of BG2EE working over the holidays. I was hoping that someone might be able to take a look at my install order? Apologies if this is not the right venue to ask. I've gone through a few iterations and tried to follow all of the readmes etc (as well as using this and this for guidance). First few times I missed that I had screwed up weidu.conf and was installing in German.

Does anything jump out to anyone as potentially problematic with this install order? This one is still installing (using project infinity), but I can always abort to save myself a test if something looks like an issue.

Also, is there a best practice for keeping mods up to date on installs? It didn't seem to me that project infinity had a way to auto git pull, so I just cloned a bunch of the repositories locally using GitHub Desktop.

Appreciate any help and thank you all for the great mods!

Tome & Blood should be before Faiths & Powers.

TnB spellcasting bonuses should be before Scales of Balance Stat Bonus Overhaul (and indeed, before TnB multiclass sorcerers, which should be before FnP, which should be before SoB... so, best to keep that in its normal place with TnB).

Lots of install orders put the first component if IR where you have it, but push all the other components later, to right before CDTweaks. 

A bunch of those Might & Guile kits won’t be available, but only because they are already folded into earlier mods (the rangers are in FnP) or earlier components (thief kits are in the Feats component, bard kits are in the Bard Overhaul). So don’t be alarmed when they get skipped - just proceed as normal. 

Nothing else jumps out at me. 

EDIT - CDTweaks arcane spell table changes should go before Tome & Blood. Or, leave it as-is and be prepared to manually edit the tables later.

Yeah, the other components affect items in the base game as well as items added by mods.  With the above install order, items added by Song & Silence or Rogue Rebalancing wouldn't be affected by the "Revised Shield Bonuses" or "Kensai Can Wear Bracers" components.
