mod install order
« on: December 02, 2014, 02:42:32 AM »
Heya. I'm running a new bg2, and as I always make a mistake in mod installation order, I wanted to ask this time before making the new go.

So the mods I want are-
Ascension
SCSII
dungeon-be-gone
banterpack
questpack V3
Gibbring3 anniversery mode(the quest)
level1npc(gonna change a lot of the npc's default class, dunno if that's a problem with other mods)
baldurdash(or some other ease-of-us mod... I just want my potions and ammo to stack!)
the official patch of course..

Please tell me if there are some mods that I should entirely aviod installing together...

Thanks...

Just make sure official patch goes before all the mods, and after the official patch, make a backup - like written here: http://forums.pocketplane.net/index.php/topic,17555

Baldurdash has been made obsolete by the Fixpack from G3 - it's best to use that. Other than that, I'm not using the mods you're using, unfortunately, so the only thing I remember is Ascension first, Fixpack after Ascension, then the rest of the mods, and Level1NPC/SCS as close to last as possible.

Oh, and try G3 Tweak pack and Widescreen mod. :)

Thanks!
I'll try that. Hoping for good.

Umm..does unfinished business and quest pack go together?
Somthing itches me about those mods affecting the same quests...thus have a big potential for glitchs...no?

BG2 tweaks from G3
after which the Widescreen mod and the Level1NPCs can be easily installed as well as the last mod, the Generalized Biffing. Installed so the SCS doesn't make the game lag horribly cause the scripts that are 1MB++ big can still run 15 times per second, wit the media files etc..

PS, ouh, the BG2 Tweak Packs should be installed before the SCS, cause the SCS actively uses the "current in use" rulesets(.2da files) for the things it does, and the Tweak Packs adjusts them.
Sorry can' help with the dungeon-be-gone, I can't read the documentation this is based on, cause I don't have a .pdf -file readed installed at this moment.

Thanks for the quick replay.

So, combining the imps' last post and dungeon-be-gone  that slipped out:

Patch
Acension
Bg2 fixpack
Dungeon-be-gone
UB
Quest pack
Banterpack
G3 anniversary mod
Bg2 tweaks
SCSII
Widescreen
Level1npc
Biffing

Right?
