Hello all, having a bit of trouble with my BWS install - testing a preexisting ToB import character in BG1 & BG2 starts caused a crash. I've implemented most mods listed in the BWP guide (except CtB and NeJ). The error also didn't show the error message when I had 3d acceleration off (but it still froze/crashed).
BG1: 2nd or 3rd combat spell cast on guards. Ranged combat (sling) has no issues.
BG2: The first spell projectile animation & damage caused in the opening Irenicus cutscene.
Given some research, afaik the error may be caused by a faulty lighting effects (either where the spell projectile animation moves, or lighting/animation effects of people hit (I have IWD spell effects installed). Given that's the case, and the error type, can someone give some advice about what I should do (or what mods to not install to see if this is the case)?
What I did to test:
An Assertion failed ChDataTypes.cpp at line number 1591
+3d Acceleration OFF:
Game crashes to black screen, no error message
+Translucent shadows OFF:
Game crashes to black screen, no error message
+Use 3d Animations
Game crashes to black screen, no error message
+Remove 3d Animations, stop all spell animation option
Game crashes to black screen, no error message

Mod list... doesn't look like you actually chose a lot of stuff, as for example the GUI mods are all there but they might not actually be installed to the game(or you got bigger problems than multiple minds... :devil: ), so the weidu.log's content might give a better glue to me at least.

Yep, Jarno Mikkola. my Mega Mod FAQ. Use of the BWS, and how to use it(scroll down that post a bit). 
OK, desert dweller, welcome to the sanity, you are free to search for the limit, it's out there, we drew it in the sand. Ouh, actually it was still snow then.. but anyways.

Whoops, forgot the WeiDU log would be better than an install list.





I'm going to rerun the setup three times - omitting BG2 Tweaks (to knock out graphics improvements), Infinity Animations, or 1PP.


I didn't think it was that little I installed - I only really skipped NPC mods & the massive expansion ones (as I thought the guide suggested NeJ [and some forum research CtB] had some compatibility issues).


After a look, it looks like SCS wasn't installed correctly - I remember I was using SCS v30, so I couldn't add in the v28 patch, and I thought I was telling BWS to skip the patch, not the entire mod - is there a way to force BWS to use SCS v30 in its setup (as the BWS has no option to select/deselect an obsolete patch)?

I found the issue!


1PP was causing the crashes - I'm almost certain the issue was comp 114 (Softer Spell Effects). I'll test this tomorrow by running a build w/ 1PP core only installed
