This topic will serve as a guide on how to install aTweaks alongside other mods in an optimal fashion. Before installing this mod make sure that you have both Baldur's Gate 2: Shadows of Amn and the expansion pack Throne of Bhaal installed on your system. Furthermore, make sure to also download and install the latest official patch version 26498 for Throne of Bhaal. In case you notice that a certain feature of aTweaks is causing a compatibility issue with another BG2 mod (or vice versa), please report it in the compatibility comments thread so that I can address that in the next revision. It would be helpful to list any other mods which you have installed and the installation order as well. The easiest way to do this is to post the contents of your WeiDU.log.

Compatibility with other mods

What follows next is a list of mods which have been tested alongside aTweaks and who's a compatibility rating has been determined. Any mods not mentioned on this list should be considered as untested and potentially incompatible with aTweaks. The list will be periodically updated as new information becomes available, so feel free to contribute. Note that mods which were deemed to be compatible with aTweaks may not necessarily be compatible with each other. Furthermore, the installation order presented here refers only to the fact whether these mods should be installed before or after aTweaks. It is not an actual indicator whether some of the listed mods should be installed before others. Please check the documentation and the discussion forums of all mods which you intend to install for more detailed compatibility information. For easier reference, the mod entries have been color-coded according to their compatibility rating as follows:

Green = fully compatible with aTweaks
Blue = special case (compatibility can be achieved but only by closely following specific install instructions)
Orange = partially incompatible with aTweaks
Red = incompatible with aTweaks
Grey = untested with aTweaks (unknown or roughly estimated compatibility)

Most other BG2 mods should be installed BEFORE aTweaks. Only the mods listed below should be installed AFTER aTweaks:
  • Infinity Animations (Beta 4) [link] - fully compatible
  • Level 1 NPCs (v1.3) [link] - fully compatible

Note: this topic is reserved for confirmed compatibility notes and install order instructions. If you want to report a previously undocumented compatibility issue please use the compatibility comments thread.

Concerning mods which feature general AI enhancements:

For best results, it is highly advised to install aTweaks after mods which feature general AI improvements such as SCS, SCSII, Big Picture, Tactics, Quest Pack...etc. For reference, aTweaks has been coded with the aforementioned mods in mind and will adapt itself to them as long as it's installed last.

In particular, it is very important to install aTweaks after Sword Coast Stratagems II if both mods are to be used together. Otherwise, you'll risk serious compatibility issues with the Fiend components of both mods.
