Hi all,

 

as promised some time ago, I've committed to GitHub version 2.99 of TB#Tweaks, that should be compatible with the Enhanced Editions.

 

I have only tested installation of compatible components on a clean BG2EE installation, as well as functionality for the following component (that, on plain BG2, would require ToB Ex):

  • WSPATCK for all (making non-Warriors gain extra attacks per round based on proficiency and/or level)

The following components are not compatible, because (in my understanding) they lack required functionality:

  • Party members can facestab too - Enhanced Edition lacks the required functionality
  • Mages drop spellbooks - Enhanced Edition doesn't apply a bunch of required checks:
    • Sorcerors can use the Spellbook to both gain experience and learn the associated spell(s)
    • Specialist mages can use the Spellbook to learn spells from their forbidden school(s)
    • Intelligence limits to the number of spells a character can learn, as well as the chance of failing to do so, aren't applied
    • Thieves who have taken the Use Any Item can use the Spellbooks to learn (but not cast) spells and gain experience for doing so

I'd be grateful if somebody could provide pointers on how to implement the missing components.

 

 

For the moment, the mod can be downloaded from GitHub (go to https://github.com/vbigiani/tb-tweaks and click on Code -> Download ZIP, unpack to the game folder, and copy setup-whatever.exe to setup-tb#tweaks.exe).

 

Please note that it is NOT possible to upgrade from previous versions to the current one (the previous version must be uninstalled prior to the upgrade).

 

 

 

I'd be grateful if people could verify installation and continued functionality on the other relevant games/engines:

  • BG2: TOB
  • TUTU (with TOB engine)
  • BGT
  • BG1 EE (with or without SOD)
  • EET

Probably because the additional translations haven't been Germanized. Aka, you probably need to do these yourself. Looking the English translations, translate them, and then... or the bigg could also remove the option to install in non-English languages, or make a mess with prioritizing the German .tra files over the English one, but that will mess up your games if the full German translations aren't used, as your game will feature both German, and proken Gerlish.


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.

Updated to use the English translation instead of the German (if German line is missing - ditto for Russian and Spanish).

 

 

NEW:
@27    = ~Modmerge is required before mods can be installed on this game. Check the readme for more information and a link to download Modmerge.~
@11009 = ~Component requires the Windows client of BG2 to work and/or an EE-style engine.
 
If you are using GemRB report this and I'll investigate compatibility.
If you are using an Intel Mac get the Windows version of BG2 and run it via Wine (or play with EE...).
If you are using a PowerPC Mac you're SOL.

Good enough for Tweaks Anthology (from which I "borrowed" all that boilerplate), good enough for me... :D
