On practice, unless you've installed Gibberlings3's BG2 Fixpack in the middle of the game, you'll probably be okay. Have a good playthrough. :)

I installed all of the fix packs before starting the game. The QP mod will be the only mod I install mid-game. I've just noticed in the Dingo Catches Up thread, a list of fixpack for QP. Is the BiG World Fixpack v11 enough to get the QP working?

I can't advise it to you in good faith, since I am not sure how it works. You'd better off reading the documentation or asking the creators. If it says it only installs fixes for QP and not 100500 files for other(non-installed) mods, you may go ahead.

Thanx for your patience Kulyok...

I have no idea if the fixpack modifies any 100500 files and I couldn't find any clue in the readme. What I did get is more doubts about installing. I got the "D0QuestPack_v23.exe" file and the "Big World Fixpack v11" rar. In the fixpack webpage (http://www.shsforums.net/files/file/521-big-world-fixpack-v11/) it says this:

"Although it is made for the BiG World Project, it can be used with any other installation. Unpack the BiG World Fixpack.7z file in your BGII - SoA directory and start the batch file BEFORE installing the mods. The batch file checks for mods that are already in the main folder and copies the needed files into the predetermined folders.
The patch files contain only the changes, not the entire contents of the file itself. Therefore may in no case existing files be replaced with files from the patch!"

According to this, shoudl I move the QP file in the BG2 folder but run the fixpack batch file before running the QP exe? Damn... this is complicated... or I'm not too bright. :-P

Correct!

The BiG World Fixpack is as you surmised designed to update the installers before you use them. The latest version can be found here: http://kerzenburg.baldurs-gate.eu/downloads.php?id=49

If you are going to install the Quest Pack I would highly recommend running the Fixpack before starting the installation of that mod.

Seems like temujin's fixes are gone again: Mediafire link is dead. Anyone has a copy?

(SimDing0 said he had lots of issues fixed locally, too, but that ship had probably sailed a long time ago... edit: ah, wait, no, qpbeta.rar is still around).

The guy that tries to sell you the Red Scimitar +3 is buggin' out. You can't select the weapon to buy it when he opens the shop up, and after about 2 seconds it closes and he says he's sorry I decided against helping him. I tried killing him, but he doesn't have anything good... I want that scimitar!
This is from QP, right?
