Slightly confused here...
Playing on a mac. I bought BG directly from Beamdog, installed OK, installed a few mods. Once I'd played through I then purchased SoD. This has created a new folder (00806) in my Beamdog Library, into this I installed the same mods (to help with continuity), even where it didn't make immediate sense.
Into SoD- the "continue" option picked up my last save (just as I killed Sarevok) and I jump into the SoD prologue (I have comments on this which probably need a separate thread). Some of my stuff is missing, particularly a bag of holding containing some stuff I'd like to keep. I did some checking, came back to the game and this time I clicked on load game, chose the BG1 "final" save and this time the bag of holding is there and all seems good. My understanding is that continue should just load the most recent save so this seems odd.
I play for a while, saving as I go. I come back to the game later and can't see the saves within the game - they're saved on disk into a folder called "sodsave" - to play I have to copy the subfolder (eg, 000000001-Quick-Save) from sodsave to save. Any new saves in SoD (from there) are still saved to sodsave, meaning I have to do the same next time around.
If I start a new BG1 game from within SoD the save game files are put into saves.
So, I guess, three questions.
1) What's the deal with the save game location? I can live with this, just.
2) For my next play through, I assume I just run everything through SoD?
3) If I'm doing that, do I apply any future mods to the SoD game only, or do I still need to apply them to both games separately?
