Help with BiG World Project v18.1

14 May 2019 - 11:14 AM

Hi All:

 

Do to my age, I am having some memory problems.  So I would appreciate some forgiveness when I repeat something or make dumb mistakes.

 

With BWP v18.1, I have no luck with a megamod game.  So far I have tried over 40 megamods this year and had very little luck with the mega modgame.  You name it, I have tried it.  I few times, I have gotten Baldur's Gate work to where I kill Sarevok, but I always crash where Mae Var captures me or in  Irenicus' stronghold in Athkatla.  Right now, I am starting with the mods in Corrections and Improvements and in BG1 sections.  I will try a megamod game with them,  If a game works, I will add each section untill I eliminate any problems.

 

I am having trouble with using SPOILERS.  I find the spoiler BB Code.  Open the box and type in the message, then save the spoiler.  This is what I get.

 

Spoiler
     Damn, this time it worked!

 

Please tell me how to correct the mistake (s) I make when I go ti save the spoiler.

 

Another problem I have is fixing atweaks v4.53.  I found this on Beamdog.  ",,,copy and rename a WeiDU executable from another mod."  My problem is I do not know what "a WeiDU executable" is.  Spent a log time trying to find that one,  Found lots of pages about WeiDU but nothing about executable.  Any help will be greatly appreciated.

 

Another wish.  I need to check out me computers.  What I could use is a BWP megamod that worked on another computer.  I would need a list of mods used, a copy of individual.bat if it was modified and the selections use for the game.  If anyone can provide that information, I really would appreciate that.

 

Thanks to all who can help,

TOM


Question to BGT and computer setup

16 December 2018 - 06:06 PM

Hi All:

 

Glad to see SpellHoldStudios back on line.

 

Some questions about running BGT games.  I am probably the only one who does not know the answers.

 

1) Which is better for BGT games?  BIOS or UEFI. Told by Asus to use BIOS for programs older than 2005.
 
2) Does Windows Defender interfere with BGT games?  Told by Kaspersky that most antivirus programs automatically disable Windows Defender.  Kaspersky has been dumped because it caused problems with BGT.
 
3)  I have Windows 7 Professional.  I saw a comment in the internet that Windows 7 XP is better for older games.  Which version of WINDOWS 7 is best for BGT games? 
 
For those who need BG games, I got a copy of all Baldur's Gate games (Baldur's Gate, Tales of the Sword Coast, Shadows of Amn and Throne of Bhaal) from EBAY for ~$12 and no shipping.  Came on two DVDs and 2 CDs.  Works well.  They had around 500 left.

Now I will finish getting my BGT game together.
