after some time I decided to install again BGT with classic versions of games, using latest BWS. SO after I checked all mods I want to have, i have continued the installation, if properly downloads the mods, except 1 NPC which I find that I dont needed, extraction is successfull too, but when Installation starts, i got those errors...

Tried several times, also tried to provide files with extracting, all was fine so i press continue.. got this:
The extraction of the following mod(s) failed:
BiG World Fixpack (includes Trimpack): The Mod itself (BiG-World-Fixpack-master.zip) ¹
Generalized Biffing: The Mod itself (generalized_biffing-master.zip) ¹
Cannot proceed installation without this essential mod.
Please extract the files that are marked as essential first.
Aborting the installation.
I really now dont know what to do.. any ideas how to fix that?
PS: no i dont want to install EET, becase there are not the mods I want in expected state :D

To answer this very briefly:

Nobody maintains the BWS section for BGT since almost a year. If you look at the selection menu or the BWS readme you will find the warningssaying OUTDATED

Supported games

- Baldur's Gate: Enhanced Edition (standalone game)
- Baldur's Gate II: Enhanced Edition (standalone game)
- Enhanced Edition Trilogy ( BG1:EE + SoD + BG2:EE ) (planned: IWD1:EE + partial IWD2-in-EET)
- Planescape: Torment Enhanced Edition
- Icewind Dale: Enhanced Edition

Not maintained:
- Baldur's Gate 2 (classic standalone game)
- Baldur’s Gate Trilogy ( Classic BG1 + Classic BG2 )
- Icewind Dale
- Icewind Dale II
- Planescape: Torment
- Classic Adventures


You can use BWS for mod selection and maybe download but for installation and support you are now on your own.

Installations of EET and other EE games are supported and maintained.

There was a long discussion a while back


if you want to read much background information.


These posts are older but nothing has changed with regards to BWS/BGT - nobody has shown any interest or initiative to update or maintain it.

I had a nightmare trying to install BGT

I have GoG BG1 & BG2 (nonEE) and I ran BGT choosing the Recommended add-ons

The 7zip exe refused to extract all my downloaded files so I manually extracted them using WinRAR in to the BG2 folder.

When I run the game, it doesn't give me the option to start BG1 - just SoA and Bhaal.


I've tried to run BGT installer again and it doesn't want to do anything other than fresh install or restoreIt does report a list of mods that are mismatched in size.


These selected mods are missing from the downloads folder (includes archives with unexpected size, which are probably old versions):
BiG World Installpack
Jim's Fixes and Tweaks
Imoen Friendship
The White Queen
I Shall Never Forget
Eilistraee's Song
NPC Flirt Packs
Aurora's Shoes and Boots
The Bigg Tweaks

Try retry option

Thank you for replying but it doesn't give me this option. What file should I run for this? One of the .vbs?
