IWD mods compatible with IWD NPC
« on: October 11, 2008, 08:13:32 PM »
I want to try out this mod but have a few questions in regards to the mods I plan to install:

I will have the following:

IWD, HoW, ToLM
IWD Official Patch
HOW Official Patch

Widescreen Mod
If I don't use the widescreen mod, what will my game be like (i do have a widescreen lol)?

Icewind Dale NPCs

Auril's Bane
Unfinished Business

G3 IWD Tweak Pack
IWD Improvements
Ease-of-Use Pack
Improved BAMs
Mix-mod

Item Upgrade

Are there any incompatiblities with the above listed mods and what would be the install order?


Will the following mods work with IWD and the mods above?

Projectile Retrieval
Pickpocket Option

Next might be stupid to even ask but will the following mod work in IWD?

Song and Silence

Also can BG1/BG2 items work in IWD, I plan to perhaps make a few item mods in the near future?

Thanks in advance!

Put that exactly as the last mod to be installed, as you run the risk of F'ffing your QUI otherwise. And the mod just gives you a chance to put higher resolution to the screen size, even in 4:3 ration, as long as your monitor and graphic card can support the said size. And to answer your question, the game will have great black sheds over the areas where you could have the game area shown.

Also, the Song and Silence mostly adds kit's to the BGII, and IwD doesn't have them -bad, also the store has wrong area etc. code which would need to be redone etc.- in conclusion it won't work if you won't go and modify the mod radically, and even then it's easier to make your own mod for the IwD.

You don't need the IWD Official Patch&HOW Official Patch, as the ToLM is the latest patch for the game.

IWD NPC just adds five characters into your party, and banters between them. So, yes, it will work with any combination of mods. But as I mentioned in the readme, install IWD NPC AFTER older mods(as older quest\item mods overwrite files, and may overwrite IWD NPC additions). So mods like Auril's Bane, etc should go BEFORE IWD NPC.

If Widescreen mod needs to be installed last, install it last - no problem.

Have fun playing!

Which resolution are you going to play? I know that there's a serious bug in 1680x1050 and 1920x1200, but not 1600x1200. If you're going to use a large one, I have a fixed version requiring testing  :)

My max of reso is 1440 x 900


Also, will Projectile Retrieval and Pickpocket Option work in IWD?
As for the order of the mods, would the install order go as follows:

IWD, HOW, ToLM
Auril's Bane
Unfinished Business

G3 IWD Tweak Pack
IWD Improvements
Ease-of-Use Pack
Improved BAMs
Mix-mod

Item Upgrade

Projectile Retrieval?
Pickpocket Option?

IWD NPC
Widescreen Mod
