Content Cross-over Reference

The amount of content available on Sorcerer's Place, especially for the Infinity Engine games, has grown considerably over the years. Relatively early on instances of guides, mods, hacks, portraits, soundsets etc. that applied to more than one game covered on SP have started appearing. Years back, the decision was made not to duplicate any content entries across various game sections on SP, but rather to simply put it in the most fitting one.

While this was the most practical solution for us, it also meant that people could miss out on a relatively large amount of content that still applied to the game they were playing, but wasn't listed in that game's section. To help you in this area, we have decided to put together a game content cross-over reference. Here we will list all the overlapping content that is available on Sorcerer's Place (that we know of), to save you the time of looking around for it on your own. The reference will be updated as new overlapping content is added to SP, but you can also contact us to point out any potentially overlapping content that we've missed (or any content that we might have falsely categorized as overlapping).

Special thanks go to Felinoid for providing the base of this reference, and for doing the necessary research to put it together.

NOTE: The most obvious cross-overs (such as wallpapers, Winamp skins and screensavers usually listed in the games' Official Patches & Miscellanea subsections) and minor cross-over content is intentionally unlisted.

BALDUR'S GATE

Tips, Tricks, & Hints:

  • Character Creation Guide by Tazar: Pretty basic, and can easily cross-over to IWD1. Only partial cross-over to BG2 since it's missing added classes (barbarian, monk, sorcerer) and kits.

  • The Great Book of Baldur's Gate and Tales of the Sword Coast by Baronius: Most of it crosses over to BG2. Likely the only part that would be useful for IWD1 would be the advice and tactics.

  • Baldur's Gate Adventurer's Companion Guide by Nickolas Landry: Text from all of the game books, which appear in both the Baldur's Gate and Icewind Dale series.

  • Baldur's Gate Books by chocomog: as above.

Mods:

  • No Wear Limitations Mod by Daephon: Crosses over nicely. The single 2DA file is named correctly for BG1/BG2 and IWD1. IWD2 compatibility is also assumed, but not confirmed.

  • Claw of Kazgaroth Blur Remover by Baronius: Complete cross-over to BG2 and IWD1 (though the item can only be found in-game in BG1).

  • All characters: Should work as any other exported character would from BG1 to BG2. Some exceptions might be made if any of the exceptional ones (Drizzt, Elminster, dragons, etc.) turn out to be buggy in BG2; the normal ones will definitely work.

Soundsets & Portraits:

  • All Baldur's Gate portraits can also be used in Baldur's Gate 2.

  • In IWD1, the large portraits are the same size as in BG1/BG2: 110 x 170. However, the small portraits are different sizes: 38 x 60 for BG1/BG2 and 36 x 58 for IWD1. Depending on the portrait, the small one used in IWD1 might look just fine. The small portrait will be placed in the upper left corner of the small portrait slot in the game's interface, and the excess pixels will simply be cut off.

  • All BG1 soundsets can also be used in BG2, but some sounds will be missing.

BALDUR'S GATE II

Walkthroughs & Guides:

  • Basics of Armor, Armor Class and Shields in BG1 and BG2 by Ragusa: Complete cross-over for any of the 2e games (BG1, BG2, IWD1, PS:T).

  • Saving Throws Overview by Ragusa: Another good 2e cross-over (BG1, BG2, IWD1, PS:T).

  • Proficiencies per Level & Class by Ragusa: If you ignore parts a & b, which are BG2-specific, everything else crosses over for all 2e games.

  • AD&D Rules FAQ by Dan Simpson: Pretty obvious. Dan the man does it again with the perfect 2e cross-over (BG1, BG2, IWD1, PS:T).

Tips, Tricks & Hints:

  • Extracting Music from Baldur's Gate II by T. Malasri: The basic method outlined can be used for all Infinity Engine games (BG1, BG2, IWD1, IWD2, PS:T).

  • Spell Casting Advancement Tables: Another complete cross-over for 2e games (BG1, BG2, IWD1, PS:T).

  • BG1 & BG2 Complete Item Texts by Kusai Onara: The title says it all. This is a definite cross-over.

Mods:

Subsection #1:

  • All characters: The voice packs and portraits will make the cross-over to BG1 with ease (excess sounds will simply be ignored), but the characters will not be recognized.

Subsection #2:

  • Cloak of the Shield Change by Taza: Can also be used in BG1.

Subsection #3:

  • Evil Dialogues Override by Kevin Dorner: Will also work for BG1.

Editors, Hacks & Scripts:

  • Infinity Engine Miscellania by Cirerrek: Also hosts (beta) IWD2 scripts and PS:T scripts.

Portraits:

  • All BG2 portraits can also be used in BG1.

  • In IWD1, the large portraits are the same size as in BG1/BG2: 110 x 170. However, the small portraits are different sizes: 38 x 60 for BG1/BG2 and 36 x 58 for IWD1. Depending on the portrait, the small one used in IWD1 might look just fine. The small portrait will be placed in the upper left corner of the small portrait slot in the game's interface, and the excess pixels will simply be cut off.

Soundsets:

  • All BG2 soundsets can also be used in BG1. Excess sound files will simply be ignored; can also serve as alternates if you don't like a particular one.

Official Patches & Miscellanea:

  • Game Icon Set by Shalladeth: Features icons for the BG and IWD series of games, their expansions, and NWN1.

ICEWIND DALE

Mods & Customizations:

  • Grog's Custom AI Scripts: Also available for the BG1 DSotSC mod, as well as BG2.

  • All IWD1 soundsets can also be used in IWD2, but some sounds will be missing.

  • In IWD1, the large portraits are the same size as in BG1/BG2: 110 x 170. However, the small portraits are different sizes: 38 x 60 for BG1/BG2 and 36 x 58 for IWD1. Depending on the portrait, the small one used in BG1/BG2 might look just fine. The small IWD1 portrait used in BG1/BG2 will simply have a 2 pixel border on the right and bottom sides. BG2 gives it a black border, while BG1 gives it a border with the stone colouring of the GUI, which makes it less noticeable.

ICEWIND DALE II

Soundsets:

  • All IWD2 soundsets can also be used in IWD1. Excess sound files will simply be ignored; can also serve as alternates if you don't like a particular one.

PLANESCAPE: TORMENT

Mods:

  • BG1/PS:T Max HP on Level Up by Grog: self-explanatory.
