Once again, thanks for the help so far!  I am up and playing.  But, I just ran into one issue that is notable and want to ask about the other 2 issues I have seen.

 

First, I just got to Bregost and went into the house with spiders.  The new web animation kicked in and locked up my system for all practical purposes.  Is there any way to un-do the "new" web animation.  I like the new heal one enough, but the web animation... ouch. I will note that this is, I believe, 4 webs at once.  I just ran into a single spider in high hedge and my system lagged badly, but it was roughly playable if quite slow, and it left a hazy graphic around all of the characters even after the web disappeared and the web effects wore off of my toons! Sleeping did not make the effect go away and, saving the game and re-loading to the same point ALSO did not make the web-effect go away.  I have to go back to a previous save to make the game playable again.  Blah!

 

Secondly, even though I chose English, I am seeing quite a few german-speaking NPCs.  Is there something I should have done differently or a common mistake that results in this/a way to avoid this?  Examples not limited to little girl in wilderness looking for her cat, mage outside High Hedge front door, multiple folks in Bregost and Nashkel, etc. 

 

Thirdly, I mentioned in passing, Sword Coast Stratagems failed to install in my Tactic build.  It downloaded fine but failed on install.  I tried running it manally (though I am not sure if I was doing it correctly) and tried running version 29 manually - got same error with both.  The filename was stratagems-v30.exe from gibberlings3.net.

 

Thanks in advance for any assistance on the items above - most notably the web animations.

P.S. - my WEIDU is posted under the previous post I made about video performance.  I can post again if needed. 

 

P.P.S - one final thought - if I purchase the Enhanced Editions of BG1 and BG2, will most or all of the mods I am currently using work?  Just curiosity there... thanks!

The spider web issue was discussed here

http://www.shsforums...es/#entry579015

 

For the SCS issues you should go to the mods own forum on G3

http://gibberlings3....035#entry231483

 

There are several forums dealing with EE mod lists already - just google for them.

 

Who were the german speaking NPCs??? In Beregost there is Breagar and he is currently only in German - if you choose a multi-language installation in BWP/BWS you will have him like that because there is no other translation for him. There are also some non-joinable NPCs in that part from the AC_Quest mod.


The Sandrah Saga

another piece of *buggy, cheesy, unbalanced junk*

Roughly about 20% will, so nope. You probably will also want the Baldur's Gate EE: Siege of the Dragonspear.

The Enhanced Edition Trilogy(see the BGT, but for EE games) is "done", but it's not officially out because it waits for the v1.4 updates and the BG:SotDs's release for it to become officially out, and it will combine all the EE(BG1EE, BGSotDs & BG2EE) games. The version available doesn't need the v1.4 nor the SotDs, because neither are available to anyone.

The web lag is best to get completely rid off with not installing the Spellpack. Or specifically it's web component, but ... I would throw away the whole mod, but this is my personal opinion of course.

 

The German speaking NPCs and SCS not installing: You used the old as a donkey BWS in the install, you should use the most up to date one, which is this(re-directing download), which was updated ~6 hours ago, so not the 20150302 version.

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.

What is the name of the spellpack that you recommend that I avoid (name listed in the BiG World install set where you "Choose Mods and Components")?

 

Thanks!

Lost Crossroads Spell Pack for BG2. You can search it in the upper right search-box.

THINK! - It's not illegal.
