The latest version of TDD is v1.11, which you can find here: ftp://mirror.intermedia.com.sg/pub/iegmc/tdd-weidu/

It doesn't do anything to resolve the *ahem* "quality issues" with the mod, however.

Am I to assume that a majority of the sophisticated and learned BG2 players here do not use the TDD mod?

I tried a couple of years ago and it had issues that impacted gameplay enough that I abandoned BG2 at the time.

Now I am returning and do not wish to make another modding mistake.

many of the other mods, including the one in this thread, appear sufficient without TDD.

Do we have a consensus on that?

Thanx.

Correct: bugs aside, a large proportion of players (and most modders) do not use it for quality reasons.

I have never (in several years of reading several different forums) seen anyone praise/post good things about TDD. I have seen lost of praise for mods that I don't like/are very buggy, and I have seen lots of praise for mods I truly enjoy....

which means that TDD either has a very, very, very quiet fan base, or there are significant reasons why no-one is posting positives about it.

TDD is no longer supported either, so it sux to be you if you encounter issues with it.

Conversely, the mods here I see are very well supoprted.  :)


Speaking of which...

Where can I find info on problems installing the Tactics mod for BG2?

hey, i've said good thigns about TDD before - in fact, i don't play BG2 without it. which isn't to say it's not hugely flawed - but sue me, there's enough about it that i like that it's part of my basic install. and it's finally bug-free, and supported here. doesn't mean i'd necessarily recommend others use it, cos its flaws are pretty significant - but it's bug-free and fully compatible with other mods, so it's not like you lose anything (other than HDD space, and possibly street cred) by installing it.

I second that.  It might not be the best mod in the world and the kits suck a$$ but it is bug free and adds a few things that are interesting.  King Diamond put a ton of work into it to get it the way it is without changing any content.

Please convey my apologies to KD 8)  -- I certainly didn't know it was his work resurrecting the mod. Chalk it up to narrow mindedness on my part, and a tendency to read only a few forums. Plus being old and set in my ways.

And forgetful.

And grumpy this morning. :P

and I know I have read posts by both of you folks before; I just for the life of me can't remember anyone saying anything nice about TDD. It must have been overshadowed by the complaining about stuff that King Diamond has now fixed.

Well I must confess that I have not tried the latest version of TDD, 103.  Mine was the original.

Just to give TDD more praise.  I too always install TDD, mainly for the spells and some of the minor quests.

I don't know about NeJ but it seems incompatible with several things--I've not played it and nobody has ever explicitly told me of any incompatability, so if you know there is one then I'd be glad to hear of it to make people aware/see if there's a workaround. :)
NEJ replaces standard MISC84.ITM Boo item with BOO.ITM at the start of BG2, which allows "summoning" Boo. This new item is not restricted to Minsc's quickslot.

The lastest version of TDD(The Darkest Day) is 1.11 as seen here

This is hardly true. In fact, we quite openly list every other mod site around. I don't, however, blame anybody for not being quite up to date with the status of TDD, since, well, I think it sucks.

Incidentally, BG1 UB currently isn't compatible with either Tutu or BGT, but I believe a Tutu version is in the pipeline.

Without meaning any offense, how long is that pipeline?  -Given that this message dates from last August.  Any chance we'll that compatibility soon, where soon equals within the next month? :)

Well I for one cannot see any note anywhere about it being fixed, so I am not going to install Sarevok's remorse.

I've played with both installed, and I've never had problems, although at that point I didn't have many mods installed, either. It should be fine.
