I am currently playing through a game of BG:EE with the following mods:

  • BG1 NPC
  • Portraits Portraits Everywhere
  • The Picture Standard
  • Artaport
  • LeUI

Before going any further on my current play through, I would like to install a few of the tweaks from the Anthology. Is it generally OK to install/uninstall such tweaks on a current game without messing anything up?

I think you'll be fine, tweaks are meant to be installed after those mods anyway.

Yeah just be aware some tweaks may not work if you're in the middle of a game. E.g. changes to a store won't show up if you've already visited that store. It's hard to get more specific because Tweaks is really 100 mods in 1 package, and the answer might be different for each tweak.

Faiths & Powers: Spell spheres and kit pack for priests and paladins
Might & Guile: Tweaks and kits for warriors and rogues
Scales of Balance: Game tweaks and rule overhauls
NPC_EE: More options for NPCs in BGEE, SoD, & BG2EE

Yeah, pretty much what VP and SD have already said. That's where you would naturally install it, with the caveat that some component won't work on a game-in-progress. Pretty much anything that modifies area files, store files, world map, etc. won't work since these files get stored in the save game once encountered.


Why is this Hypnotoad video so popu... ALL GLORY TO THE HYPNOTOAD.
