Hello People, as promised, here follows a brief tutorial on how to install mods in the Mac BG EE Version.
As you'll see it's not as straight forward as installing mods in the windows version, but it's doable.
First of all, get the mods you want. I have compiled a Quick list of all mods compatible with the EE announced in the forum HERE
Next step is navigating to your BGEE folder.
In Finder, go to Applications/Baldur's Gate-EE/Game Data/00777/. Right click on "Baldur's Gate - Enhanced Edition" and select "Show Package Contents." Go to Contents/Resources. The Override folder will be there, along with the game data.
Unzip all the mods you will want to use in this folder.
After unzipping your mod, copy dialog.tlk from the lang/your language folder, en-us, for instance to the Resources folder. I found out making a link is not actually that useful as it's just deleted on a game update.
Now we'll need a MacOSX compatible Weidu. Thanks to @Nifft
we have one. I've attached it to this post, but go HERE
and give @Nifft
all the likes he deserves.
Now we'll need one Weidu copy for every mod you wish to install.
First unzip the weidu for OSX attached to this post.
Look for the setup-xxxx.exe in the mod you just uncompressed. That is the windows installer.
Rename Mac Weidu to the SAME NAME of the windows installer WITHOUT THE .EXE EXTENSION
So if you wanted to install BP-Series by @horredtheplague
, for instance, you'd rename weidu-osx-intel into setup-bpseries.
Copy the renamed mac weidu into the resources folder above.
And now the last steps.
Open a terminal window.
Type, or just copy and paste the foollowing command:
cd /Applications/Baldur\'s\ Gate\ -\ Enhanced\ Edition/Game\ Data/00777/Baldur\'s\ Gate\ -\ Enhanced\ Edition.app/Contents/Resources/
If you don't want to copy the dialog.tlk every time you install a mod type:
ln -s lang/en_us/dialog.tlk dialog.tlk
Remember to change en_us according to your language folder.
Keeping with my BP-Series example above, you'd type in the terminal prompt
Answer the questions Weidu will make.
Enjoy your mods
If you have any doubts or ideas about this little tutorial, post them here.
If you notice any mods missing in the Quick Links thread, post there o PM me and I'll add it ASAP.
Once more my thanks to @Nifft
for porting Weidu to OSX.
*IMPORTANT* You need administrative rights to install mods in OSX. If you get a permission denied error, make sure you're logged in with an Administrator account.
