Installation order question (yes, another one, sorry)
« on: April 23, 2006, 01:35:12 AM »
Ok, I'm finally gearing up for my ultimate BG1 experience, using EasyTutu, but on my initial installation run-through, I had some problems with the order in which I installed some of the mods I had selected.  So I'll provide a list of the mods and components I want to install, and if anyone could help me with compatibility/installation order issues, I'd be greatly appreciative.

Here they are, and my intended order.  Please let me know if you have any insights.

ToB Patch
Baldurdash ToB
Baldurdash ToB Dialog Fix
Tutu Fixpack v. 15 (not core components)

EasyTutu NPC-kits
Restored BG1 Tutu Sounds
One Pixel Productions
   All components
   Improved goodberries
Ashes of Embers
   Sensible weapons for mods
   Sensible weapons for tutu
Divine Remix
   All components
   Shapeshifting fix
   Universal lesser mage robes
EasyTutu Spawn Randomizer
   All components
Tutu Tweaks
   Breakable Nonmagical Armor, Helms, and Shields
   Multi Player Kick-Out Patch
   Avatar Morphing Script
   Weapon Animation Tweaks
   Shut Up "You Must Gather Your Party ..."
   Commoners Use Drab Colors
   Icon Improvements
   Change Avatar When Wearing Robes or Armor
   Add Bags of Holding
   Exotic Items Pack
   Reveal City Maps
   Add Map Notes
   Stores Sell Larger Stacks of Items
   Force All Dialogue to Pause
   Valen/Solaufein-Style Interjections
   Sellable Staffs, Clubs, and Slings
   Higher HP on Level Up
   Maximum HP Creatures
   True Grand Mastery
   Un-Nerfed THAC0 Table, Saving Throws, Grand-Mastery, and Arcane, Divine Spell Progression
   Shapeshifter Rebalancing
   PnP Spell Progression Tables
   Rebalanced Weapon Proficiencies
   Cast Spells from Scrolls (and Other Items) at Character Level
   Unlimited Jewelry and Gem Stacks
   Unlimited Potion Stacks
   Unlimited Scroll Stacks
   ToB-Style NPCs
   Give Edwin his BG2 Stats
   Give Jaheira her BG2 Stats
   Change Jaheira to Neutral Good Alignment
   Give Minsc his BG2 Stats
   Give Viconia her BG2 Stats
   Make Khalid a Fighter-Mage

The ones I'm most concerned with are the Shapeshifter fix (from Refinements) or Shapeshifter Rebalancing from Tutu Tweaks.  I prefer the Refinements version, but I don't know how either one will react to Divine Remix, so I included them both.  I'm also concerned with Improved Goodberries (from SimDing0's Tweaks) and Divine Remix, and how they'll interact.  Also, while I'm thinking of it, how will Tutu Tweak's Divine Spell Progression react with Divine Remix?

The order looks fine.

There's no need to worry about Tweak spell progression with Divine Remix, since IIRC they only change the higher levels. Plus, Cam coded them both. :)

Ok, actually, I've found a problem, and it all seems to relate to Divine Remix and how it interacts with other mods.  I'll ask here, and I'll also post it on the Divine Remix board, so maybe someone can help me out.

The order I originally posted did not work - Divine Remix did not install (it SAID it did, but after the core components, the installer abruptly ended, and I got messages for all the other components saying that they couldn't be installed without the core components installed).

So I tried installing it with Ashes of Embers first (after the Tutu fixpack), then Divine Remix, then Refinements, then everything else (not entirely sure of the order, but if it would help anyone, I could figure it out).  That way seemed to work fine, except when I picked up Viconia, she was a generic cleric, not a priestess of Shar as I had requested.  Any ideas what would have caused the conflict, and what order I should do it in?

Install the walking speed fix right before Tututweaks, some mods introduce characters who will not be affected by this fix.  Also, the remove spells that were not in BG1 component crashed my game a few times, uninstalling this fixed it for me.
