Installation

Windows
NiGHTMARE's NPC Beautification Pack is packaged and installed with WeiDU.  To install, simply extract the contents of the mod into your BG2 folder.  If properly extracted, you should have a nmbeauty folder, setup-nmbeauty.tp2 and setup-nmbeauty.exe in your BG2 folder.  To install, simply double-click setup-nmbeauty.exe and follow the instructions on screen.

Mac OS X
If the mod was previously installed, uninstall it before extracting the new version.  NiGHTMARE's NPC Beautification Pack is packaged and installed with WeiDU.  To install, simply extract the contents of the mod into your BG2 folder.  If properly extracted, you should have a nmbeauty folder, setup-nmbeauty.tp2, setup-nmbeauty, and setup-nmbeauty.command in your BG2 folder.  To install, simply double-click setup-nmbeauty.command and follow the instructions on screen.  You'll receive a message informing you that WeiDU can not auto-update--don't worry, this is normal.

Contents

Each portrait is a separate component. In NiGHTMARE's own words:

"All the BG2 NPCs have now undergone plastic surgery, and all the wrinkles, spots, warts, scars and so on are gone! A couple of the characters opted to have their tatoos completely removed.  Oh, and the surgeons somehow figured out how to get rid of Sarevok's weird glowing eyes! Some characters have benefitted more than others.  Jan, for example, has had a good 20 years taken off of him, and the Half-Orc player portrait now looks considerably less repulsive."
