With the bigg permission, Generalized Biffing has been updated to v2.3 and is now available for Mac Os X and Linux games (in the same package).

 

This WeiDU mod allows you to biff the content of the override folder for improved performance, that means the files are converted into the BIF file format and moved into the data folder. This works natively under OSX and Linux (if you use the correct executable) and is compatible with the common WeiDU stack un-install operation. The game thereby loads much faster again and the performance is running pretty smoothly without jerking.

Note: Recent user reports have indicated that Generalized Biffing is unnecessary for Enhanced Edition games.

 

:excl:  Warning for non-western code page users: Waiting for next WeiDU update, please install this mod with WeiDU v.246.

Are you sure about this?

It has been so for the last 5 years, so yeah. It has to do with how the game use files, see previously we didn't have GBs of RAM memory, but 32 Mbs at most.


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.

100% sure. It does not mean you can't do it. It just means it is useless. ;)

 

Thanks for the translation. I will update the mod as soon as possible.

I see, i saw no mention about the time or if this was solved at beamdog's forum.

 

Gwendolyne - Thank you, there is no need to update now, you can wait till a new update is done. ;)
