Hey all,

I'm looking forward to being able to play this all the way through, but I'm having trouble installing EET.  Installation stops because it cannot locate a cre file:

ERROR: cannot locate EET/temp/patch/cre/BDBART01.cre

Any help would be appreciated! Thanks

You need to install the Modmerger tool into your BG(1)EE game ... and you need the Siege of the Dragonspear DLC to do that. The reason, well that file in question is located in the /sod-dlc/Creature.bif -file, after the tool is installed.

And if you have it there, then you need to change the BG2EE game directory away from the C drive, or place it under a directory that you have a full access and permissions, aka in Windows 10, the only location on C drive is the C:\Users\<username>\subfolders\ ... and have your antivirus programs not place your computer in sandbox mode.

So this won't do:  C:\Games\Baldur's Gate II Enhanced Edition\ unless you have a Windows 10 from a beta stage where they didn't include the C drives sandboxing in the OS level.

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.

Thanks! I guess I forgot to merge it since it's been awhile since I played last; I assumed I already did it

Looks like it cannot find SoD files - maybe you missed to use modmerge on a Steam or Gog install?

I had forgotten to merge it.  However, once I do, I get a few more errors:

 

ERROR: BIFF [.\DATA\25AREAS.BIF] cannot be loaded: Unix.Unix_error(20, "stat", ".\\DATA\\25AREAS.BIF")

and

ERROR: Failure("resource [AR3000.ARE] not found for 'COPY'")

 

Thanks again for all the help!!

This really sounds like your original BG2EE game is not installed correctly (the error was already in your previous attempt).
