A new version of Dark Side of the Sword Coast for BGT is now available.

Version 2.17 of the BGT version of the first IE mod is now available for download.

This fixes some issues with the previous release, most notably a bug which prevented the mod from installing correctly in German.

You must have a working installation of BG2, with the BGT mod installed. Read the BGT readme first for further information and requirements.
It is suggested that you use BGT 114 or later; while installing that mod, when you are asked whether to biff your game resources, it is suggested that you answer [N]o (you can biff the resources after installing DS, with the last component of this mod).
If you're using BG1 or TUTU, you must use the appropriate versions of DSotSC; this one is for BGT only!

Installation on Windows:
Double click on setup-dsotsc.exe and follow the instructions.

Installation with the BWP setup:
ATTENTION: For reasons depending on Weidu and my plans for the next updates, I had to change the number of the core component, from 0 to 5. The Big World installer may not yet have been updated to reflect that change.
For this reason, if you want to install this version using the BWP installer, you must edit it accordingly: inside the .bat file, look for DSotSC, and add, after the number 0, the number 5, to the list following that.

Installation on Linux and Mac:
- You can delete setup-dsotsc.exe; that will not be needed.
- You will need to download the latest version of WeiDU, for the relevant OS and platform, unless you already have it.
- In case you are using Linux, you must run tolower first, from the game directory. That's not needed in case you have already done it for another mod before.
- You can now install the mod in two different ways:
(1) extract the WeiDU and WeInstall binaries to your system path, give them executable permission; from the game folder, run
WeInstall dsotsc/setup-dsotsc.tp2
(2) extract weidu to your game folder, and rename it setup-dsotsc, or create a link called setup-dsotsc to an existing weidu executable (be sure it's up to date). From your game folder, run

Then, follow the instructions. Please consult the readme before posting any questions or reporting problems; you could find the solution there.
If the game is installed on a partition whose files can't be executed (it's mounted NOEXEC, formatted FAT, or similar), you will have to follow the first of the two methods listed, and consult the readme for other necessary options.

Upgrading from v215 (or before): Saved games from v215 are compatible with the most recent versions.
In order to install the new version, you MUST Uninstall the old version first. Only then, delete the old DSotSC folder, and unpack and install the new version. Do NOT use [R]e-install.

If you are using the RC of v216 or later, you can use the Reinstall option, after replacing all files in the DSotSC folder with the updated ones (be sure you don't delete the backup folder!).

Bugs: I hope this mod does not contain too many bugs, but some could still occur. In case you encounter any, please report it following the instructions on this topic.
