[Solved] Widescreen patch fails on GNU/Linux

NOTE: THE PROBLEM WAS just that the "widescreen" folder has to go directly into my game install directory. Not "widescreen" contents, but the folder itself. Then "weinstall" will find everything it needs!

 

 

Hi there,

 

I'm trying to apply the widescreen fix, latest version, on GNU/Linux, but I am seeing this:

manuel@hp15db0:~/Downloads/bg$ weinstall widescreen
weidu --log "setup-widescreen.debug" "widescreen.tp2"
[weidu] WeiDU version 24600

Couldn't open the readme: file not found.

Install Component [UNDEFINED STRING:   @1]?

 1] UNDEFINED STRING:   @26
ERROR: No translation provided for @27
Continuing despite error.
 2] UNDEFINED STRING:   @27

I am using the GOG version of BG1 (2.0.0.20) wich includes the TSC expansion.

 

Any idea on what's going on?

Your widescreen folder does not contain tranlations to the strings it should, aka try to extract the archive again so that the widescreen folder is actually in the game folder, so that the translations aka the strings with @number actually say real things.

My widescreen folder DOES contain the translations. And it's on my BG+TSC and BG2 install folders:

manuel@hp15db0:~/Downloads/bg$ ls tra/
english  french  italian  portoguese  russian  spanish

manuel@hp15db0:~/Downloads/bg$ ls tra/english/
setup.tra

As you can see, everything is in place and tolowered. So that's not the problem at all.

 

What *could* be a problem is this weidu.log file that the GOG version og BG1+TSC includes:

Quote


// Log of Currently Installed WeiDU Mods
// The top of the file is the 'oldest' mod
// ~TP2_File~ #language_number #component_number // [Subcomponent Name -> ] Component Name [ : Version]
~DDRAWFIX/DDRAWFIX.TP2~ #0 #0 // DDrawFix -> Force DirectDraw Emulation: v1.0

 

 

Maybe the problem is that the GOG "complete" versions come with incompatible patches applied??
