Install order and questions
« on: April 10, 2018, 06:57:15 AM »
I plan on playing baldurs gate 2 + TOB (NON EE edition) with SCS and have a few questions:

1) Is this the correct order:
- bg2
- tob
- g3 fixpatch
- tweak for merchants and multiple strongholds
- scs
- widescreen mod

2) on my last play with SCS2, this occured as soon as i enter planar prison. Enemies randomly wonder around springing traps. Could widescreen mod cause this ? https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=YBq4zxvI-xA&feature=youtu.be

I told you in the other thread that it's NOT the Widescreen mod, it's SCS, as it makes the enemy randomly walking around that's causing the traps being sprang and thus damaging them.
And yes, that looks like a correct install order.

Thank you for your reply,

In that video i posted, enemies wander around even if i am not invisible, it happens as soon as i enter planar prison. I found a video of another person playing with SCS where enemies do not wander around like that:

Neither of those installs have a weidu.log attached, thus we cannot be sure which version of the SCS those were, nor which components they had, if their install order was anything reasonable, of if there is any other mods installed !!!!!!!!!!
And both of those are also from 2013. Why are you asking 5 years old things ?

Well, the G3 Tweakpacks mod edits the character attributes a bit, such as Tha0 on high levels ... if you want the enemies to reflect the change, you install the tweak before the SCS, as should you know, it checks if the creatures Thac0 is below what it should be among things like it's class, if it has one and it's level. If it's below, it bumps up the Thac0 so that it has the one it should be. This only effect's about 5% of the creatures in most cases. But you said that you wouldn't install those .. so it's kinda all the same.
