There is no problem. Ignore errors like this during Tutu install, they are really full feedback reports of the conversion process than errors. As long as the Tutu conversion finishes then you're okay. It's Tutufix that can have the real issues with non-TotSC installs and obviously this is something the makers really want to fix*.

*Actually I'm almost certain they'd prefer everybody to be using TotSC, but since that's not going to happen...

Exactly.
An area (like AR4904) may have a script attached to it (that would be AR4904.BCS), but that is optional. When Tutu converts an area, it automatically looks for the area script; as many areas don't have one, Tutu reports an error.
Which doesn't hurt in itself, but makes recognizing *real* errors harder... :)

The only bif files I am missing are AREA260a, AREA2600 and AREA2700, all on CD1. Yet when I try and copy them over both data folders stop responding and I have to use task manager to close them down.  ??? ???

Any ideas on how to solve this problem?

That sounds like a problem with your CD. :(

I found WinBiff here:

(The other link provided seemed wrong)

I'm going to try installing Tutu this way.. it's all experience and knowledge.

I tried reinstalling easytutu to fix the huge spawn problem, but now I annot install BG1 fully.

For some reason, the installer won't uncompress area2100.cbf. I can copy it around, but I don't know how to extract. How do I get the BIF file out of it? WinBiff doesn't let you open just one CBF file...

I think my area2100.cdf is corrupted. Could you give a list of md5s so we can check it is proper? This is the checksum on mine:

tutufix says it cant find _Narrat.cre
Could anyone advise

I was having the same problem, but I just solved it. I thought I'd post how so that if there are any problems, I could undo it before I got too far along.

Basically, what I did was use TeamBG tools to extract Narrat.cre from my BGI game (I'm sure lots of other programs would work, too), then renamed it _narrat.cre and put it in the Tutu override folder.

If anyone sees a potential problem with this, please let me know.

I did a custom install with all clicked, and have no idea what I should do to remedy this situation.  I hope its not my CD's.

NPCSound.bif is the required one.  The rest are TotSC-specific and therefore optional.  See if you can't locate the file on your BG1 CDs and copy it manually.
