What was not tested
Playing modified game.
Proper installation procedure of Baldur's Gate Trilogy modification: BG1 installation - Make a full installation of BG1 and Tales of the Sword Coast - Patch it with BioWareâ€™s official ToSC patch v5512 - Start BG1, make your settings, create a character and make a quicksave with Q in Candlekeep - Quit the game BG2 installation - Make a full installation of BG2 and Throne of Bhaal - Patch it with BioWareâ€™s official ToB patch v26498 - Start BG2 and ToB, make your settings, create a character and after the autosave quit the game BGT installation - unrar BGT107_Install.rar in Baldur's Gate II directory - run 'wine Setup-BGT.exe'. Setup-BGT.exe provided with the mod is a windows binary of open source WeiDU/BiggDU utility. It interprets accompaning file Setup-BGT.tp2 (a text file with instructions in the weidu specific scripting language) which triggers some windows .bat shell scripts that doesn't fire correctly under wine (bug #14545). Using linux binary does not help. It was reported that it is possible to work around it by modifying .bat scripts to linux bash scripts and so the installation process was managed to be finalized, but the game seemed to be corrupted (crash-to-desktop). I didn't test playing modified game, but I'm aware it may be very playable just as unmodified game is. The installation can be done under windows operating system (but one has to have a windows copy), or using 3rd party installers (provided with torrents? torrents?)

Multiplayer can work, but requires some setup first.
The problem is with the current DirectPlay implementation. Read here how to set it up: http://wiki.winehq.org/DirectPlayGames
To get multiplayer working for games that use a DirectPlay version prior to 8, place the following DLLs:
dplayx.dll, dpnet.dll, dpnhpast.dll and dpwsockx.dll in this archive in WINE's windows/system32 directory, then add DLL overrides (native,builtin) with WINECFG.
