~ BALDUR'S GOTH II - v.1 ~
- A Baldur's Gate II (SoA with or without ToB) Mod
+) Section 1. About
Baldur's Goth II is a mod which enhances the graphical side of Baldur's Gate, in an attempt to make the game more 'Gothy'. The first version features edited portraits and paperdolls of all NPC's, as well as a new startup screen for both SoA and ToB.
Baldur's Goth II has support for Throne of Bhaal, but the expansion is not required.
+) Section 2. Installation
Baldur's Goth II is a WeiDU mod, which can be installed before or after any other WeiDU mod. Official patches and non-WeiDU mods should be installed prior to all WeiDU-mods, including Baldur's Goth II.
The mod has two separate components:
1. NPC Enhancements
This component will add new portraits and change the paperdoll colours for all joinable Bioware NPC's, including Sarevok for ToB, as well as for Jon Irenicus.
You can choose to install the portraits or the paperdolls separately, or to combine them. The latter is recommended for full experience.
2. New Main Screen Images
This component will change both the SoA and the ToB main screens.
