I've been trying to install this mod, and so far it has only partially worked.


First of all, some info:

Mod version: 1.7 (the latest OS X  version)

Installing on the latest version of BG2EE, running on OS X 10.11, using Mac WeidU Launcher to install.


The problem:

I get the following message:


Skipping GROUP [Baldur's Gate II NPCs] because it fails its requirements.


Followed by this for a bunch of components:


SKIPPING: [Component Name]

You must install the main component before any others. Please exit and


begin again.


If anyone has advice on how I can fix this & install successfully, I'd really appreciate it!

This mod was not made compatible with BG2EE version of the game. Now there is/was a EE specific version in the works by ChevsDaak, if you just look the thread in the forum after this one, but from what I gather, it's not exactly finished yet.

And the mod is really complex and all the fun stuff, having 10 000++ lines of code and stuff, so getting it all work together with the NEWTM games is really a hard work.

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.

Ah, OK got it. Thanks for your quick reply!


Add me to the list of people who want compatibility for the original NPCs - not bothered about the new EE ones.
