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.

What works

installs and runs great

played all the way through bg1 and totsc and about half of shadows of amn


Note:

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.

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

Peformance issues solution
by Stefan Reichelt on Friday August 1st 2014, 17:35
Also, for anyone who has performance issues (stuttering, general framerate drop, character movement stuttering, animation stuttering) even though this old game should run without any problem on your computer, it is because you installed too many mods.

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!
Problem. Map and crash.

I have problem. I did everything step by step and on first sight it works but game gets crash when i'm trying open a world map. I'm getting this: pastebin.com/nuU8WqKE

Can someone help me?

I had the same problem, the worldmap (either through map screen or when exiting area) freezes/crashes my game (only BG1 though). However after some searching I found the mod bp-bgt-worldmap [1] which changes the default worldmap (for both games if you want) to a much bigger, more detailed one and it works with it! :)

Here are my install steps:
BG1 install
BG2 install
Copying all mod files into BG2
weinstall bg2fixpack
weinstall bgt
weinstall bgtmusic
weinstall bp-bgt-worldmap
weinstall bg1ub
weinstall ub

System:
Old crappy laptop
Linux Mint 17 Cinnamon 32bit
Wine 1.7.22
