Just one question; what does the following do?

xcopy /y /q "D:\BG2-Mods\fixes\*.*" "D:\BGII - SoA\override\"

The rest is fairly simple, but don't see what is happening with this line. Is it required even?

Well, it copies the custom made BG2-Mods/fixes/ -folders files into the game directory. In this example it would be needed if you have any fixes of your own. But, as everyone today should use the fixes from here, which has it's own installer and so on... and so forth...


Hmm, the link you gave says it should be installed before mods. So should I put the above line to the top of this batch file i'm creating?

I think I should be removing such a line all together, running the fixpack v7.0 you linked, and THEN running my batch file?

I guess that it puts corrected files into the folders of mods i'm going to install, so needs to be done first, whereas the version ronin has goes at the end of his batch file since it's fixing things by putting stuff into the override.

Let me know if that's right.

Well, you are partially right... but I would suggest that you look at the BWP, as it actually uses the Fixpack and it does a lot of other fixes during the installation process within the BiG World Installpack.

In case the BG2 game crashes post the content of your baldur.err file. To get it to record stuff, open up the 'baldur.ini' in your game folder with Notepad, and under the [Program Options] section in the file, make a new line and type in 'Logging On=1' (without the '' quotes, unless the line is already there)... Save the file and exit. Now go back into the game and try to reproduce the crash. Then look in your game folder again for the Baldur.err file and open it with the Notepad to analyze its contents, or let us do it.

Well, I don't plan on using any of these 'mega mods'. I mean, i'll probably use quite a few mods, but none of these TDD, NEj or anything else that large.

Thus I will probably just use this fixpack, which seems very nice in and of itself, I must say, kudos to whoever has collected all that stuff - must've been a lot of work.

I'm also wondering, is it ok to run this Big world fixpack on a tutu modded game, once again right before I start to actually install any mods?

Thanks for your help so far.

You don't need any of those mods, as the mods to be used can be chosen before the installation is even began.

Well, the BiG World Fixpack is ment to be used in BGT versions of the mods... <_<

If anyone's interested, tell me what you think of the PS WeiDU (Un)Installer tool I made.


"Ok, I've just about had my FILL of riddle asking, quest assigning, insult throwing, pun hurling, hostage taking, iron mongering, smart-arsed fools, freaks, and felons that continually test my will, mettle, strength, intelligence, and most of all, patience! If you've got a straight answer ANYWHERE in that bent little head of yours, I want to hear it pretty damn quick or I'm going to take a large blunt object roughly the size of Elminster AND his hat, and stuff it lengthwise into a crevice of your being so seldom seen that even the denizens of the nine hells themselves wouldn't touch it with a twenty-foot rusty halberd! Have I MADE myself perfectly CLEAR?!"
