Baldur's Gate II

Baldur's Gate Trilogy is a modification originally created by Bardez that aimed to achieve two major goals: to play Baldur’s Gate and Tales of the Sword Coast expansion using the much improved Baldur’s Gate II engine, and to generate some kind of continuity between the events of Baldur's Gate, Tales of the Sword Coast, Shadows of Amn, and Throne of Bhaal. Baldur's Gate Trilogy-WeiDU takes this a step further by converting the modification to WeiDU format, which has improved compatibility with other modifications. While BGT-WeiDU remains mostly faithful to the original Baldur's Gate and Tales of the Sword Coast, a number of new features have been introduced to satisfy the above goals.
    Baldur's Gate using the Baldur's Gate II engine: BGT-WeiDU is a modification installed on Baldur's Gate II: Throne of Bhaal. Therefore, the story of Baldur's Gate can be experienced with the updated graphics, better resolution, and interface improvements present in Baldur's Gate II.
    Bug fixes: BGT-WeiDU includes an internal fixpack that addresses a significant number of bugs that remained in Baldur's Gate and Tales of the Sword Coast. A technical list of fixes can be found in the installation package.
    Continuity from Baldur's Gate into Shadows of Amn: BGT-WeiDU uses a dynamic system to transfer players from the end of Baldur's Gate to Shadows of Amn. A cover story is used, in which the player talks to Belt after Sarevok is defeated, and NPCs are conditionally imported into Shadows of Amn depending on what fate you led them to experience in Baldur’s Gate.
    Expansive compatibility with other modifications: BGT-WeiDU is compatible with the latest versions of modifications in a mega-modification installation, as well as a large number of other fan-made modifications. This allows the player to expand the world of Baldur’s Gate to an enormously rich location to explore. A compatibility list is available in the installation package.
    Organised journal entries: BGT-WeiDU utilises a full quest journal system and ensures that all Baldur’s Gate journal entries are removed prior to the transition to Shadows of Amn. This prevents clogging up of the journal, which normally makes it hard to find important information in the journal.
    Map Notes: The advent of map notes makes it useful for the player to pin their own special locations. BGT-WeiDU comes with a number of map notes already inserted to help the player find particular buildings quickly, instead of running around like crazed chickens into every single house in a particular area.

Additional Comments

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 BioWare’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 BioWare’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?)

HowTo / Notes

Multiplayer via Directplay
Mentioned in a comment by zsolty_szasz:

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.

HOWTO
In case of any problems be sure to see the instructions on http://wiki.winehq.org/Infinity_Engine_Games
