Baldur's Gate Trilogy is a modification which intends to create a continuity between Baldur's Gate, its expansion Tales of the Sword Coast, Baldur's Gate II, and its expansion Throne of Baal.
It's a mod to BG2 and it will modify BG2 game files to include everything needed.
This version is from GOG.com + BGT-WeiDU 1.18 and a few minor other mods.
|Version:||Baldur's Gate Trilogy 1.18|

installs and runs great
played all the way through bg1 and totsc and about half of shadows of amn
I almost gave up on this as the mouse cursor stuttered horribly and every mouse move was extremely slow.
A post for ubuntu karmic on the shadows of amn database suggested
using winetricks ddr=opengl, then enabling 3d acceleration in bgconfig.
Game was perfect after that except load times were slow.
A comment on this page suggested a mod called 'generalized_biffing'. This greatly improved load time.
Thanks to all that posted I am very pleased.
What does not

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.

However, there is a mod called 'generalized_biffing' which converts all installed mod files into a file format better suited for and easier loaded by the game. BGT does this also while you install it.
The mod 'generalized_biffing' should be installed last after all others.
This took me a while to figure out, so hope the next person here has less problems!
