Ahaha, that's what I get for trying to be clever.  Yeah, copied, backed up, whatever.  They should be backed up because some mods patch them.  Yeah.

  i'm presuming that those who have the savvy to make an extensive cross-reference of such things... are busy creating and debugging and other real work.  (or actually having to make some money.)
  i volunteer for the post.

Hey guys im new here and i got a question.  I just started doing the mod thing but ive played BG for a while now.....Well my problem is after i install my mods no more talking occurs and by that i mean no more npc talking such as aerie wont start talkin  so no romance can occur or anything else. The mods i install are these in this order

TOB offical patch
Baldurdash Gamefixes and then the text updates
Banter Pack
NPC Flirt Pack
Ascension
Redemption or Longer Road i tried them both
unfinished buisness
Quest pack

We determined that nothing was wrong, the player just hadn't reached Chapter 2 yet, which is where the banter and lovetalks kick in.

anyone know somewhere other than bioware to download the official patch?  I've tried linking from several different sites (incl this one) as well as typing the address, and keep getting "cannot find server".  (I think their site is down as I managed to get the fixpack from weidu/baldurdash)  how badly do i need it anyway- actually, my roommate wants to play it on his computer and I don't think he'll get too far, certainly not beyond the first round of quests (tonight).  So does he really need the patch?  I make however, no allowances for the sudden rise of a new addiction once he starts playing.  So he might need it eventually, huh?

Wait, can't I just install the patches whenever (mid-game) or am I misremembering?

thanks for listening...

cheers.

If you have Throne of Bhaal:

1) Install Shadows of Amn.
2) Install Throne of Bhaal, if applicable.  DO NOT install the Shadows of Amn patch.
3) Install the Throne of Bhaal patch.
4) Install the Baldurdash fixpack for Throne of Bhaal.
5) Install up to one non-WeiDU mod.
6) Install any desired WeiDU mods.
7) Play

Why only one non-WeiDU mod, praytell?

Because if it's not a WeiDU mod, then it will overwrite the dialog.tlk instead of appending to it.  If you apply more than one non-WeiDU mod, then all the text, including dialogs, for the previous mods will be destroyed.
