BG2 Tweak Pack v3 Released


Recommended Posts

The BG2 Tweak Pack is a WeiDU compilation of fixes, cosmetic changes, and tweaks. Some of these were fan requests, others are needed fixes, and others simply make dealing with the more irritating aspects of the game engine easier. Each component can be installed separately so the player can pick and choose only which ones they wish to install.


This mod works on normal Baldur's Gate II games as well as either of the two Baldur's Gate conversion projects, BG1Tutu (Tutu) and Baldur's Gate Trilogy (BGT).


This mod includes and deprecates several other mods: the G3 Tweak Pack, the Tutu Tweak Pack, and Wes Weimer's Ease of Use mod. With the first non-beta release both the G3 and Tutu Tweak Packs will no longer be offered for download, though support will continue to be offered for players with ongoing games.


Changelog from v2 to v3

  • Czech, Polish, German, and Spanish translations are up-to-date, with thanks to Razfallow, yarpen, Leonardo Watson, and Immortality respectively
  • Viconia Skin Color Change relies on matching creature names against known srings for Viconia; one string was not being accounted for and was used primarily by EasyTutu cuasing the component to sometimes not work on this platform
  • Fixed bug where Weapon Animation Tweaks could cause crashes when used in conjunction with Weimer's Underrepresented Items mod. The component was not accounting for one-handed staves, assigning them a non-existent attack sequence
  • Fixed bug where Restore SoA Load Screen Logo was failing to install due to bad paths to the shell scripts
  • Shapeshifter Rebalancing will now work if installed after Divine Remix
  • The readme listed a 'hybrid' option for Shopkeepers Have Limited Identification Ability, but no option was actually present. The option is now coded and available. The existing two options had their coded tightened significantly.
  • Added the Make +x/+y Weapons Consistent, Description Updates for Make +x/+y Weapons Consistent Component, Change Magically Created Weapons to Zero Weight, Imoen ToB Dialogue Fix (JCompton), and Romance Bug Fixes (Sabre, Richardson) components from the deprecated G3 Tweaks and Ease of Use. These have been integrated into the Fixpack as fixes, but they're still available separately for players who do not wish to use the Fixpack. The Shadows of Amn World Map Fixes component was not restored; the fixes are already included in Yacomo's worldmap as well as the Fixpack.
  • Fixed yet another Imoen bug with ToB-Style NPCs: the Tutu versions of Imoen were being copied from an incorrect cutscene version of her
  • Items from the Exotic Item Pack will now be usable by all if Ashes of Embers is installed
  • Fixed bug with both of the BG-style options of the Alter Weapon Proficiency System component altering weapon descriptions incorrectly
  • Shadow Armor +3 is no longer subject to the Allow Stealth and Thieving Abilities in Heavy Armor per P&P component
