Hello everybody,

 

while setting up a parallel installation I'm encountering an unexpected error when trying to install the above mentioned mod.

Have installed and played it many times before without any trouble. But now it stops installation because it is missing the AREA2200.bif (Ust Natha). At least that's what the attached error log tells me.

Can you help?

 

Thanks in advance

It doesn't find the ressource "AM2200.wav". What game are you on?

Well, another Baldur's Gate 1 and 2 plus ToB merger via BGT I assume?

Here's my WeiDu-log in case it helps.

Some BGT installations are missing some sounds, I had random bug reports about missing ressources before. Put this into your override and try installing again.

I had hoped it would be solved that easily. But when I do as you suggested, the installation keeps failing, this time missing the file AM2201.wav.

Debug-log attached. Should I try and drop that file to the override folder as well?  Or ist the problem more elemental?

 

Thanks for your efforts.

Hmm, it says a BIFF cannot be loaded. if the wav files is present in your game, then the problem lies deeper. if it's also not present, then maybe you also have some problem, but you could try to put a wav with this name into your override folder.

Don't laugh at me if I'm totally wrong, but isn't the BIF-file an archive that should (probably) contain the missing files?

 

Can't try my luck before Monday, when I'm back at my office laptop.

 

Have a nice weekend!

The BIFF file is how the game stores its files. if you see the file in NI but the install says it can't copy it, then you have a problem with your game files / permissions.

Okay, that's unpleasant. The BIF-files are all where they ought to be. But the mod can't read them.

The AM2201.wav file is not present, so I assume it has not been properly unpacked from the BIF? Will try to find one an d drop it to the override in a last attempt to save the install.

@ jastey: Do you by chance have the AM2201.wav file? Because that's the missing one according to the debug-log.

 

Thank you

Sorry for the late reply.

Tried the AM2201.wav file (thank you jastey), but now it misses AM2202.wav.

Is there a way to extract the according BIF file separately to have the content in one go?

Otherwise I will restart installation from scratch.

 

Greetings
