The BG2 Tweak Pack is a WeiDU compilation of fixes, cosmetic changes, and tweaks. Some of these were fan requests, others are needed fixes, and others simply make dealing with the more irritating aspects of the game engine easier. Each component can be installed separately so the player can pick and choose only which ones they wish to install. Version 15 includes three new components, fixes for foreign languages on EE games, and a slew of bug fixes.

Blah blah blah, yadda yadda yadda, v15 changelog:

  • Fixed bug with components that added strings for non-English installs on Enhanced Editions. New macros were coded and employed for components which update item descriptions (e.g. Allow Stealth and Thieving Abilities in Heavy Armor per P&P).
  • Finally got Alter Weapon Proficiency System: Rebalanced Weapon Proficiencies to finally stop flubbing on replacing the ninja-to text. I think.
  • NPCs Don't Fight already covered the new Enhanced Edition NPCs for BGEE; now it also does so for BGIIEE
  • Romance Cheats was simplified and expanded to cover the Enhanced Edition NPCs
  • Improved Fate Spirit Summoning also updated to cover the Enhanced Edition NPCs
  • Added Give Cespenar Cromwell's Recipes, Remove Summoning Cap, and Do Not Reveal City Maps components
  • Neutral Characters Make Happy Comments at Mid-Range Reputation now better accounts for the happiness setup in Enhanced Edition games
  • Armor list used for various components now accounts for IWD armor for IWD-in-BG2 or IWDEE games
  • Fully deprecated the Description Updates for Universal Clubs Component
  • Higher HP on Level Up should be a little faster, as it'll no longer try to patch tables already patched
  • Updated the Change Experience Point Cap - Remove Completely option to account for yet more tables softcoded by the Enhanced Engine series
  • Change Magically Created Weapons to Zero Weight will now work on a dynamic search for magically-created items, instead of a fixed list. Since this now potentially reaches a broader list than the BG2 Fixpack, the Fixpack will no longer preclude this being installed.
  • Unlimited Ammo Stacks will now cover spears, for mods which add them
  • Added screening for components to detect upcoming IWDEE release and show/hide components as appropriate
  • Exotic Item Pack now updates the proficiencies for creatures who have their weapons changed; on BGEE Krumm's magical club will be moved nearby instead of being overwritten
  • ToB-Style NPCs will now try to detect NPCs on the fly instead of working from a fixed list, in theory providing better coverage for current and future mod NPCs
  • All components restrictions have been updated with an eye towards the imminent IWDEE release. Explicit changes to the components themselves were made for Improved Multi-Player Kick-out Dialogues (Weimer)
  • Two-Handed Axes will now adjust the contents of IWD Item Upgrade to account for the two-handed alternates on IWD-in-BG2 games

 


I came here with a simple dream: a dream of killing all humans. And this is how it must end? Who's the real seven billion ton robot monster here? Not I. Not... I.

And let's go ahead and make that v16. Changelog:

  • Fixed a bug where Disable Portrait Icons Added by Equipped Items or Remove Fatigue from Restoration Spells would not work in 1% of circumstances
  • Fixed a bug that prevented Remove Delay for Magical Traps (Ardanis/GeN1e) from installing
  • Remove Racial Restrictions for Single Classes will now change the maximum charisma for dwarves to 17, allowing them to become paladins and preventing a freeze during character creation
  • Reveal Wilderness Areas Before Chapter Six was not taking advantage of the fixed worldmap for BGIIEE games
  • Modernized install for Sensible Entrance Points, specifically the tileset unpack for the changed NORH
  • Added Jerrod's Mace to the Make +x/+y Weapons Consistent
  • Removed internal debug code from Change Magically Created Weapons to Zero Weight
  • Do Not Reveal City Maps missed a couple of area reveals via cutscene, notably Waukeen's Promenade being revealed during the Irenicus/Cowled Wizard cutscene

I just tested and was able to download and run all versions.

Specifics? Is it access denied, or something wrong with the package itself?

Hi. The download doesnt work.

Erhm, I was able to download all the v16's, so you got to give more info on what exactly is not working, try again after updating your browser/page and possible plug-in's.

Got ninja-ed... grrr.

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.

Well, he's not the only one. I can download any other file except for v16 tweak pack. When I click download it just shows "Unable to load the webpage because the server sent no data". I also tried different browsers, same result.

Sorry 4 the double post.

Well, he's not the only one. I can download any other file except for v16 tweak pack. When I click download it just shows "Unable to load the webpage because the server sent no data". I also tried different browsers, same result.

Ok so this is strange,  I had a previous v16 of this mod downloaded in my computer that i cannot extract, it says: "CRC failed in setup-bg2_tweaks.exe Unexpected end of archive". And the error message is: "some installation files are corrupt. please download a fresh copy and retry the installation". And also I cant download the v14 Jarno has in Mediafire, maybe its a windows 8 problem or something... Im no expert, sure im doing something stupid :p

Avast find a virus (maybe a trojan I can't remember, I deleted it)... maybe others antivirus softwares find something wrong and so downloads are blocked.

It already happened for others mods by the past, even if there is no problem.

Yep, apparently Avast was blocking the download without even giving me any popup, it works fine after disabling it.

I uninstalled avast and now there is no problem. Sorry for the annoyance @CamDawg, you should move or delete the untopic posts I suppose. Thanks everyone for the help.

Ok, I am a newbie to this site, Maybe this is not the correct place to post this? I played BG2 when it first came out. Now, I have decided to pick it up again. I have installed the Tweak Pack. my question is,(and maybe I just don:t get it), when I level up a character, there are 0 points to distribute to that character. I used the HP cap mod, along with several other mods from the pack. I have leveled up a few characters in my party, and none of them had the number points to distribute to various traits of the character. (0  and 0 were displayed for the level points).Any help is much appreciated. Thanks, Lar
