"Do NOT use this mod when playing SoD for the first time"

Hi Roxanne,

 

I'm sorry but I don't understand precisely what you mean by that.

 

I will try an EET-playthrough and I don't grasp what it implies to that end.

The mod provides an alternative but skips one of the BIG battles to get into Dragonspear Castle.

 

This is meant as a hint to at least once enjoy the original game as it was written and developed with much work and care. Only if afterwards you feel that you want another way to solve the case with Caelar, you should use that other road. It is for those with an urge to fill a gap in the original game, but for that you should at least know what is going on and decide only after you know the story. But of course you make decisions as you want, it is just my suggestion.

 

PS In EET you will be able to play the ToB contents regardless of whether you took the SoD alternative or not. Only prerequisite is that Caelar is still alive at SoD end.

Thanks a lot.

Well thought.  

i'll try with and without.

By the way, is the mod now included in a BWS installation?

You can select it in BWS, it is under NPC-related mods. It is not pre-selected.

And yes, you can install it anyway, because the decision which route you take is made in the game.

Jaheira- You are amusing, in a "what the hell is wrong with you" kind of way.
Montaron- Ye live longer if ye don't annoy me. Mayhaps even a week or more.

You install the game first, then you install the modmerge tool in to your game, and then you can install this. Yes to use the modmerge, you need to have the BG1EE + SoD. So there.


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.
