I'm encountering a character encoding issue with:

Generalized Biffing v2.4

WeiDU 246

BG2:EE 2.5

on Linux.

 

The Vecna mod installs a bunch of files that start with a non-ASCII letter, such as "override/µcxa2e.bam".

Generalized Biffing croaks on the first such file it encounters:

 

Installing [Generalized Biffing -> Biff all files (recommended by the Big World Dudes)] [v2.4]
Creating 1 directory
Creating 1 directory
Warning: BASH_FOR encountered Unix.Unix_error(Unix.ENOENT, "stat", "override/\226\181cxa2e.bam")
It will proceed with a partial file list
[data/tb#gen0.bif] will contain 24 resources totalling 597631 bytes
Warning: BASH_FOR encountered Unix.Unix_error(Unix.ENOENT, "stat", "override/\226\181cxa2e.bam")
It will proceed with a partial file list


In my case, this resulted in only a tiny fraction of my override files getting biffed (24 out of 45,377).

 

As a work-around, I'm manually moving all files with non-ASCII letters out of the override folder, apply Generalized Biffing, and then move the offending files back.

Is there a better solution?

My Linux uses the "en_US.UTF-8" locale.

Anybody have problems with Generalized Biffing and WeiDU 24700?

 

My game is crashing at the very beginning of BG1 when Imoen runs across the screen to join.

I asked wisp for help because I don't know which new WeiDU feature might cause this.

I am having a similar issue, except it's with BG2 (non Enhanced Edition).
 
Even after trying both biffing options, the game immediately crashes after the first loading screen, when the intro (with Irenicus zapping you) is supposed to play.
 
No error message, nothing. Just straight to desktop. The baldur.err crash log is also completely empty as well.
 
When I unistall generalized biffing, the game proceeds normally, but it's unfortunately very laggy and unplayable. :/
 
Enclosing my WEIDU and biff debug, in case it helps.
 
EDIT: Weirdly enough, it does not crash when I start ToB, leading me to believe it has something to do with biffing a file specific to the first area in BG2?

 

EDIT2: Ah, I managed to narrow it down to Infinite Animations causing the crash in combination with generalized biffing. Will bring the issue there.
