A few questions
« on: January 10, 2006, 05:41:40 PM »
Hi, I have played through BG2 and ToB more times then I can remember sence I pre-ordered it before it was released.  I enjoy using mods to enhance the game, make it harder, and add excitment into it.  It has been a wile sence I have played though so I am out of date with mods.  I have now spent about 2 days reading all over the web about the diffrent mods (I only trust WieDU mods)...and well, I have had some bad exsperiences with spending several months (real time) playing a game and then having it be unfinishable becouse of bugs or incompatabilitys >:(

So, I would like to ask you smart folks if these mods should work together or not.  I have listed the ones that I considder to be must haves (ones that I have used before and are incredibly fun and I know will work) and then some other ones I am interested in.

(I dont have the *.RAR file unzipping program sence I reformatted last so I mught have to skip the mods that are in *.RAR format)

Alternatively, you might spend the 30 seconds it takes to download WinRar.

True, however I am trying to keep my computer as clean as possible, and install as few extra programs as possible.

Nothing is worse than a dirty computer. Maybe you should also uninstall BG2, just in case.

What Echon might have been trying to say is that while keeping your machine clean is a fine goal, WinRAR really is an exceptionally useful and flexible program and a worthy part of a "base Windows install."
