Baldur's Gate Trilogy-WeiDU v1.05a has been released! Get it from the usual places (http://www.shsforums...showtopic=23549) when it is uploaded to the servers. Check the SHS mirror for first availability. Changes from BGT-WeiDU v1.04 are available at http://www.shsforums...showtopic=24822.

Among bugfixes and a few gameplay changes, this version introduces a Simplified Chinese translation and the option of auto-installation, which simplifies large mega-modification installs.
You might also notice a few changes to the installation process, in that the final DOS portion of the installation runs straight after the WeiDU portion without having to press a key, a complete installation of BG:TotSC is verified in the BG:TotSC installation directory specified, and installation of music for BGT-WeiDU has been separated from the installation of a custom GUI for BGT-WeiDU, both of which are optional.
Finally, due to these and other changes in this release, you must start a new game. Continuation of saved games from older versions of BGT-WeiDU may result in crashes-to-desktop or game-breaking bugs.

Go to http://www.shsforums...showtopic=30146 for problems with the GUI installation in the 3 Nov 2007 release of BGT-WeiDU v1.05a.

Check here regularly for updates for known bugs and issues to be resolved. Please DO NOT post bugs in this topic, else they will be moved or deleted.
