Following Linux Guide - BGEE path issue
stewelement posted a topic in Enhanced Edition TrilogyI've been following the excellent guide corvias put together here: http://gibberlings3.net/forums/index.php?showtopic=28516 Everything goes smoothly up until I actually attempt to install EET. Once I'm prompted for the path, I am stuck with the "Invalid directory, or incorrect BG:EE+SoD installation." error. I've made 100% sure I've got SoD installed and ran modmerge beforehand. My games work, and the path I'm specifying is valid: /home/stew/Games/BG/modbox/bgee I've looked over similar threads on the forum and seen common answers, like needing SoD installed. Is there something I can look at to see how the path is being verified, or even better, specify it someplace other than the prompt (it appears that this was an option in the past)? I've got the Steam versions, latest patch, no mods installed. Using EET RC 11. Any help appreciated, for such an easy prompt, I am stuck here. Thanks, stew
Installation on linux questions and so on
illhill posted a topic in BG1 NPC ProjectHello everyone, I've done multiple forum searches and have tried to follow multiple guides and haven't had luck with subsequent Google searches. I hope I won't be adding any redundancies to the forum though I feel fairly confident that I won't be (at least I hope). To explain everything from the start and to provide background: I'm running Debian Buster (testing) and I have a decent-enough of a build to run BG:EE, BG2:EE, etc. I'm relatively compotent with a terminal so this process didn't seem too intimidating (and still doesn't—I feel like I'm missing some sort of obvious detail). The other relevant information follows: I initially began my process of installing mods from the Beamdog forums following the directions from this topic. I first installed the BGEE+SOD Modmerge tool which seemed to go-on without a hitch. I then began the process of installing the BG1NPC mod. I followed the directions from this page. I first installed the WeiDU files and copied them into my /usr/bin/ folder. After this, I began to run into issues. I've attached two screenshots to this topic and in subsequent paragraphs I will explain what I did leading up to the errors. Leading up to the errors, I extracted the contents of the folder into my BG:EE directory (/home/.steam/steam/steamapps/common/Baldur's Gate Enhanced Edition/). I then attempted to run the tolower command which came back with a relatively simple error stating the since I'm using the EE of the game, it would break the game if the command were to run so it quit. This made sense to me. My thought process was that the weinstall command would be the next step to take. Here is the error: The installer was unable to find dialog.tlk. In a few searches through the Beamdog forums, I found that some people would move dialog.tlk to the /home/.steam/steam/steamapps/common/Baldur's Gate Enhanced Edition/ directory and then move it back once the installer ran. I attempted this but the following error was returned: At this point, I found myself at a bit of a loss. In addition to this, the directions from the readme seem to indicate that one should use wine when booting the game? Is that requirement? Here's a screenshot of what I am referencing: Please let me know if I can clarify anything. Does anyone have any ideas about where to go from here or anything that I am missing? I've reverified the game in Steam so I'm ready to go at it again. Thanks all!
