I re-installed my BG2EE (GOG version) and all the mods according to the recommended install list.

I have VampireTales104 which I assume is version 1.04, I'm unable to find a download link for a newer version and when I try to install the version that I have I get this error:

https://pixhost.to/s...tales-error.jpg

I do have TOB installed, and if I choose to install the components of the mod, it does so, but they don't appear in the game.

I have Baldur's Gate II v2.2.66.0.

 

Edit: Problem solved, managed to find version 1.05 and it did the trick.

(For anyone interested, finding the 1.05 version required a search for "VampireTales104.rar", with the quotes, and then from the first google result choosing VampireTalesForBG2EE  ).

according to the recommended install list.

If that means BWS recommended list, then it should use v105.

I was referring to the list here, http://gibberlings3....showtopic=26945 , it does say v105 but there is no download link and on the modder's own page the link to the download leads to nothing, finding the correct file to download was harder then it should have been.

This is in fact a very old list (2014) and BGEE and BG2EE are very dynamic games yet. Many mods are updated meanwhile. BWS currently has a good up-to-date link list, even if you do not want to use the tool for your installs, you can download it and use its references to find mods. It took me less than 30 seconds to find a live link there.

Roxanne a question for you if you'll be so kind, why is BWS installing modes that I specifically unchecked so they will not be installed? just as an example, NPCs I never wanted like Coran or  Branwen but also content modes that I unchecked?

Are you sure you unchecked them? There is more than one Coran mod and more than one Branwen mod.

For others I cannot answer unless you say which ones you mean.

Roxanne, lets say for example GolemConstruction for spellcasters (or something similar) I'm 100% sure I unchecked it but it was still installed and many more like AnimalCompanions (100% sure I unchecked it) and others.

Go to your BWS folder and look for BigWorldSetup/Config/user.ini

Post the file as an attachment. Or check it yourself by opening it with any text editor. Look for [Save]. Every component listed below the keyword and until you reach [DeSave] was selected for install.

 

It is possible that you unchecked a mod and then went to solving conflicts/dependencies .- there you may possibly have chosen a

solution that re-introduced a mod or component.

As far as I can see none of the mods I mentioned above is in the list but they are installed none the less

 

Edit: correction, I don't really know if they are installed in the game , what I meant was that a folder was created for each of them in the BG2 game folder so I'm assuming they are installed in the game as well, else, why create a folder?

A....

You can read from your games weidu.logffile if a mod component is installed. The folders might be made to faciliate file transfer ... such as the BiG World Fixpack. 


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.

To see if the mods are really installed, open the weidu.log in the BG2EE folder. It will tell you.

 

According to the user selection, those mods should not have been installed. But according to your file, you used GogGames directories for the game install and an admin folder for the BWS - I do not know you PC's settings but those could be UAC protected parts on your drives and information may not have been written into files correctly.

NPCs folders? I guess I'll just wait until all the installation is finished (it's running now for over 4 hours) and see, thanks for your replies.

Just a hint - even if those mods are really installed, it does not impact your game as you can just ignore them if you meet any of those in the game.

 

And weidu.log is of no use while the installation is still running... so do not mind just now.

Well I checked the weidu.log just the same and it shows installed mods that I specifically unchecked (the installation is still running though)
