G3: IWDification Returns with a Shiny New Beta
Posted: Jan 09, 2018, 08:12 am by Ancalagon

IWDification is a mod to bring some of the elements of Icewind Dale into the Baldur's Gate series of games. A lot of this project is based upon the work of the IWD-in-BG2 conversion project, which later formed the backbone of IWDEE. The mod adds various elements such as selectable bard songs, two-handed axes, and over 70 new spells into your BG2, Tutu, BGT, BGEE, or BG2EE game. Every component can be installed independently of one another.

Beta 4 is a major overhaul of the mod with a complete revamp of the new spells.

G3: bg1re updates to v2.4
Posted: Dec 14, 2017, 02:44 am by Ancalagon

bg1re

The Baldur's Gate version of the popular Romantic Encounters mod, adding several encounters and quests all over the game, aims at populating the game with romantic encounters, intense dialogues, unexpected private dinners, romantic traces of long lost times, and real quests that all deal with true love, fulfilled or unfulfilled.
The mod installs on BG w/TotSC, Tutu, BGT, BGEE, and EET.

Version 2.4 increases compatibility and fixes some oversights.

Changes:

  • "Necromancr's Trouble": Ramazith now agrees to sell Nymph's blood (but his conditions are inacceptable).
  • (BGT) all journal entries will be deleted upon transition to BGII
  • (German version) "Bardolan": changed "Kommandant" to "Hauptmann"
  • (compatibility) changed DV of %tutu_var%poe back to "poe" (compatibility with bg1npc and MotSC (= TWM)!)
  • g3_bgee_cpmvars.tpa corrected (Post dialogue for Dynaheir and Jaheira - not important for this mod)

WeiDU.org: Item Upgrade v43 Now Available
Posted: Dec 10, 2017, 01:52 am by Ancalagon

The Item Upgrade mod allows Cromwell and Cespenar to upgrade additional items in BGII. One third of them are convenience functions (e.g., they save you ring or boot space), one third of them try to beef up categories of weapons that are "weak by comparison" (e.g., clubs and spears), and one third of them upgrade NPC-specific items.

Version 43 corrects errors in the Polish translation (for real this time) and provides a few other bug fixes.

GemRB 0.8.5 released! (Lynxiversary edition)
Posted: Nov 26, 2017, 11:02 pm by Ancalagon

GemRB is a portable open-source implementation of Bioware's Infinity Engine. It was written to support pseudo-3D role playing games based on the Dungeons & Dragons ruleset (Baldur's Gate and Icewind Dale series, Planescape: Torment).

It has been a while since our last release, but plenty of goodies have landed since. This release brings a slew of minor features and fixes, of which a select few are mentioned in the changelog. Of those that aren't, a last minute AttackReevaluate fix stands out, since that action is used all the time in AI scripts.

For the details, try GemRB yourself or check the linked changelog for some highlights.

G3: Version 4 of Tweaks Anthology Now Available
Posted: Nov 22, 2017, 10:22 am by Ancalagon

The Tweaks Anthology is a WeiDU compilation of fixes, cosmetic changes, and tweaks that will run on every Infinity Engine game, from the original Planescape:Torment, through the Icewind Dale and Baldur's Gate series, and the new Enhanced Editions of the games. The successor to BG2 Tweaks and several other tweak packs, 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 4 includes one new component, an updated French translation from Isaya, and bug fixes.

Chaos Sorcerer Kit v2.0 released
Posted: Oct 21, 2017, 03:12 pm by Ancalagon

The Chaos Sorcerer Kit is a mod for BG:EE (with or without SoD), BG2:EE, EET and IWD:EE that introduces the new kit "Chaos Sorcerer" which can be seen as the Wild Mage counterpart for the Sorcerer class. It installs several unique spells for the kit and provides an optional component that scatters powerful artifact across the games which can unlock tremendous powers when combined.

The mod is currently available in English and German. It supports both pre and post 2.0 patched games.

G3: bg1re updates to v2.2
Posted: Aug 08, 2017, 02:22 am by Ancalagon

bg1re

The Baldur's Gate version of the popular Romantic Encounters mod, adding several encounters and quests all over the game, aims at populating the game with romantic encounters, intense dialogues, unexpected private dinners, romantic traces of long lost times, and real quests that all deal with true love, fulfilled or unfulfilled.
The mod installs on BG w/TotSC, Tutu, BGT, BGEE, and EET.

Version 2.2 fixes some bugs and oversights.

Changes:
  • ("Camryn and Tamah") original journal entry (dlg state 4,5,6) of Tamah's quest will be removed as soon as it's written (by area script)
  • ("Camryn and Tamah") added one more journal entry for Tamah if PC demanded her house
  • (BGT, Tutu; BG:EE, EET) ("The Messenger 2: Rain or Snow or Gloom of Night") quest spell doesn't show at spell table any more
  • (EET) ("The Honest Lies of Two Riversides", "The Novelists", "Necromancer's Trouble") area scripts are now correctly patched with quest script blocks
  • (compatibility) ("Bardolan's Briefing") altered Bardolan's reaction at first meeting a tiny bit to introduce another line so the variable for his meeting will be set (if BG1NPC is installed and Kivan / SharTeel are interjecting into the dialogue, there was an instance where the variable did not get set and Bardolan wouldn't show in the barracks.)
  • (SoD from GOG/Steam) Mod won't install on Steam/GOG SoD if modmerge didn't run.

G3: 'Imoen Is Stone' released!
Posted: Jul 30, 2017, 12:52 am by Ancalagon

The whole mod content is a huge *** Spoiler *** for BGII game story so you are warned.


***
I feel under a lot of time pressure every time after the incident with Irenicus, Imoen, and the Cowled Wizards at the Promenade. This mod lets Imoen be turned to stone in that fight. The idea is to give the PC more ease of mind to do all the quests in Chapter 2, knowing that Imoen doesn't suffer - and can be turned back to live like Branwen was in BG1 once the PC reaches Spellhold.

The mod lets Imoen be turned to stone in the fight with Irenicus at the Promenade. She will still be taken by the Cowled Wizards, and Irenicus will have depetrified her and do his soul-experiments until the PC reaches Spellhold so the overall game flow is not altered. But overall it all happens a bit later than in the original, and (at least for me) it's a bit less disturbing.

This is meant to be a very small mod, which is also one of the reasons why the overall game story is not altered.

The mod tries to use as many originally voiced lines as possible, but some had to be taken out because they didn't make any sense without Imoen reacting. Also, some lines were added to stress the reasons why Imoen will be taken to Spellhold although she is turned to stone.

Imoen Is Stone is compatible with Alamateria's Restauration Project "Extended Waukeen's Promenade Cutscene", Tweaks Anthology "Faster Chapter 1&2 Cut-Scenes & Dreams", Alternatives, and Saeileth mod. It has to be installed after Tweak Anthology.

Version 2.1 comes without the leftover backup traces that made their way into 2.0 and also rightfully lists tibicina as mod contributor!

Changes:

  • fixed installer from leftover backup infos
  • (Readme) added tibicina to the credits!
  • updated to WeiDu v242 (Windows)

WeiDU.org: Item Upgrade v42 Now Available
Posted: Jun 19, 2017, 01:12 am by Ancalagon

One third of them are convenience functions (e.g., they save you ring or boot space), one third of them try to beef up categories of weapons that are "weak by comparison" (e.g., clubs and spears), and one third of them upgrade NPC-specific items.



Version 42 corrects errors in the Polish and French translations (Cam's fault, not the translators) and updates the English descriptions for the Enhanced Edition games to better match the EE style guide. The update also integrates the supplementary Cespenar audio--previously a separate download--as an optional component into the main mod.
