0. Full BGII SOA+TOB+26498 patch (and BG1+ToTSC+5512 patch or BG Original Saga if installing BGT)
1. BG2 fixpack v1
2. NEJ2v42 + NEJ2v602 patch, and NEJ2 biffer v3 if using BP-weidu (but see *note)
3. SoS v1.11 and/or TDD v1.11 and/or CtB v1.8 and/or Tortured Souls for BP v6.09 and/or Reign of Terror v2.0 - in any order (but note: NEJ2 and CtB have some incompatibilities. be sure you want to install both of these before you go ahead and do so)
4. Baldur's Gate Trilogy v1.02 (read the instructions in readme file before installing) and NeJ2-BGT compat patch if using both NEJ2 and BGT
5. Dark Side of the Sword Coast v1.85
6. Northern Tales of the Sword Coast v1.45
7. Secret of Bonehill v2.05
8. All other mods, except the ones on this list (they should go after Big Picture v177)
9. Big Picture v177
10. BG2 Tweaks v3
11. DEFJAM XP fixer v3
12. BP-BGT Worldmap v6.3
At this point, run Setup-GUI.exe and choose BGT GUI to install original BG1 music. Once you kill Sarevok and are ready to move on to BG2, run it again and install any other GUI (non-BGT), to use BG2 musiclist again.
other than Step 0, these are all optional installs: if there is something on the list you don't wish to install, you can skip it. the overall order of installation, however, must be maintained.
*note: to use NEJ2 with this install, yr going to have to make some edits yrself to Setup-NEJ2.tp2 before you install. (please be aware that these edits are neither recommended nor supported by vlad, so if you make them, don't go complaining to him at BWL if something goes wrong - post it in this forum, that's what we're here for). open Setup-NEJ2.tp2 with yr favourite text editor (notepad works fine) and remove the following lines:
REQUIRE_FILE ~Data/25Dialog.bif~ ~Please install "Throne Of Bhaal" and the official ToB patch before installation of this mod.~ REQUIRE_FILE ~override/Animate.ids~ ~Please install the official ToB patch before installation of this mod.~ REQUIRE_FILE ~override/MusicList.ids~ ~Please install the official ToB patch before installation of this mod.~ REQUIRE_FILE ~override/CLASS.ids~ ~Please install the official ToB patch before installation of this mod.~ REQUIRE_FILE ~override/AreaType.ids~ ~Please install the official ToB patch before installation of this mod.~ REQUIRE_FILE ~override/Spell.ids~ ~Please install the Baldurdash fixpack before installation of this mod.~otherwise NEJ2 won't run, as it will be looking for files that BG2 Fixpack has already patched and/or biffed.
