This WeiDU mod allows you to biff your game's files for improved performance. Differently from BWP's end_biff, this works natively under OSX and Linux (if you use the correct executable) and is compatible with the common WeiDU stack uninstall operation (whereas using end_biff you have to uninstall and reinstall it manually if you want to alter mods installed before the biffer).

Can it be used on other Infinity games?
Can I install Generalized Biffing on Icewind Dale HoW for example?

Gen_Biff requires WeiDU v213 (which the 'official' archive contains). To install Gen_Biff, simply download it from the first post, extract it to your game folder, and run setup-generalized_biffing.exe.

Yes, it's a bug in WeiDU 214. Use WeiDU 215 instead.

Hello,

Can someone help me with a problem ... I need to know how to make only a *.bif file (with a manually selection of various files) to put it in my data directory from BGII - SoA because a certain *.bif file I think is damaged and I want to replace it with the files from generalized bif mod folder.
Solved it!:D
Thank you!

Hey there Bigg. First to say thanks for all you awesome mods :)

I'm having an issue with Generalized Biffing. I can't seem to uninstall it correctly, when I uninstall the game gets corrupted and bgmain.exe crashes on start. I have changed laptops and have to change the widescreen setup for a different resolution, but when I try to reinstall it the setup first uninstalls Generalized Biffing which in turn corrupts the game. I'm not really sure how to solve this and would really like some help with it. Thanks in advance!

It's not something I caused or I can help you solve without access to your computer.

It might be possible to restore your game to a working condition, but I have no intention of playing Twenty Questions with you to figure out exactly what you did to break your game.

maybe there is some other manual way to change the resolution (otherwise there aren't any problems), i'm willing to try anything to get it to work. unfortunately my old laptop has some problems with the screen and the game is unplayable on it :(

I had installed BGT and near the end of BG2 the game started stuttering. Probably due to the shitload of things it had to keep track of, mainly due to the many items and the numerous containers I carried and possibly due to the fact I was playing it at 1920x1080 with a new rig. I used this little mod and with the second option (Biff all files) the stuttering was fixed ! Thanks Bigg !

Since a lot of players are facing this stutter problem recently with IE games, this mod might be a pretty good solution.

Salutations.

I've spent the past couple days attempting to get Generalized Biffing installed in the dim hope that it will solve the achingly long savegame times in BG2 that seem to be a rare reaction between Macs and the G3 fixpack. It has fought me more or less every step of the way on this; the current version of WeiDu has vanished from the internet, previous versions have refused to accept my admin password for install, the whole nine yards. I've spend around three times longer trying to get this game playable than I have spent playing it in the past week.

Finally, I figured I'd gotten it figured out. Up, running, good to go. What happens?

I'm running WeiDu 222, the latest version I could get that would work, on a duo Snow Leopard, and I am pretty certain that if this beats me I will have to become a luddite. Help, please.

the current version of WeiDu has vanished from the internet

Don't know about your problem, but the Mac version of WeiDu can be downloaded from:
http://www.weidu.org...iDU-Mac-230.zip

Version 231 has been released but isn't compiled for the Mac yet.
