I only want some limited aspects of the mod, e.g. changing all two handed swords to do 2d6 damage instead of 1d10. Would this be compatabile with EET?

Not really, as you need the primary mod component to be able to install the secondary components.


Welcome to the sanity, you are free to search for the limit, it's out there, we drew it in the sand.
Here's how to install all the ... mods you ever really could want to Infinity Engine games. I removed the stable word from there as Roxanne began to add BS mods that are likely to break compatibility from the BWS.

What do you mean by primary mod component exactly? Doesnt the mod change weapon damage via the .ITM files? Wouldnt just dropping the changed .ITM files into the override folder work?

​@Jarno: I don't think that's true. I'm pretty sure you can install the Weapon Changes subcomponent (among others) without the main component.

​@Question: No, because the strings of all the weapons would be wrong. Strings being the text of the items - most likely, they would just reference random text. The description of one weapon, if not patched via the installer, might just be a random bit of dialogue, for example. However, you can try installing just the Weapon Changes subcomponent, which is what does the 1D10 to 2D6 change, among others.

Bartimaeus is the IRR version compatible with EET at all? As a whole mod, I mean. Can it be safely installed on EET?

Even base IR is fairly compatible with BG2:EE/T, outside of some graphical issues (that are not game-breaking), but I think IRR's only real "incompatibility" with BG2:EE/T is that some BG2-EE-only items are still not handled yet (I have all of the relevant files, but I need to go through them) and BG2:EE's new stores do whatever they want, but outside of those inconsistencies, should be good to go I THINK. If you play it, feel free to let me know any oddities or inconsistencies.

Thanks for answer. Don't think I will have the opportunity to play EET for a while. I'm asking because I maintain a BG2EE-compatible list of mods on some Polish site and wouldn't want to mislead players about EET compatibility, if it's not entirely true.
