Override folder-friendly mods?

JCPheonixJCPheonix Member Posts: 21
Can you guys name some mods that you can just drop into the override folder? And doesn't require weidu or a pc. I'm playing this game on my android tablet just so you guys know.

    i think some of the mods from sorcerer' have some override friendly stuff ( like the level cap remover )

    Hi @JCPheonix, Do you have access to a PC? If so, it is reasonably easy to create a mod pack and copy it into your Android game folder. The mods I used were really only based around the BG2 Tweaks v16 pack; Tweaks Anthology v3 is the current replacement, but because you are using 1.3.x, the BG2 Tweaks pack works well.

    Have a look at this discussion for most the info needed to generate the modkit.

    I am in the process of making some notes about modding the Android games (mainly so I don't forget the process I used, but also to help out one of the members who is 'Alpha' testing the notes at the moment) , and I am happy to upload it here to the forum when nearly complete (these things are never really complete). The notes are currently about BG2EE but would just as easily work for BGEE as well. As a bonus, it will provide some details on how to enable your saved game and modding setup to allow editing via EEKeeper.

    If you don't have access to a PC, have a look at BG2 Tweaks or Tweaks Anthology (not tested on Android by me, so I can't say whether it will work for 1.3.x) and make a selection. If possible (it may depend on what version of BGEE you have for your android device), I can put together a pack for you. As an example, I did a pack for BG2EE for another member who didn't initially have access to a PC. If you run BG2EE on your device and it is 1.3.2064, then why not try it out; the details of what was modded are in the discussion...

    I still have 1.3.2070 (Android) setup on my PC for modding but I don't play on my Tab S any more as I went hybrid PC. Should be able to test on my Note 4 though.

    If not and you are only looking for some override folder mods, then I kept a couple in my archive:
    More Style for Mages_Ranged Staffs, Circlets, Robe Tweaks (not sure if the latest version still supports 1.3 but worth trying, and the override version is still there.
    Algerons Cloak - many Charms per day, there may be some other overrides there as well that would suit. Be aware that most are for BGEE v2.0 so it would be a little but of guess work as well as trial and error.
    BGEE - BG_EE_Level 40
    Unfortunately the rest of the mods I have for 1.3.x are weidu based.

    Not in my archive but might work is A Simple XP Cap Remover which you would use without the SOD component of course.

    Anyway, sorry for the wall of text but I hope that it helps

    I don't have access to a pc nor weidu but I'll take a look at what mods there are. Ty

  • GusindaGusinda Member Posts: 1,558
    No probs. Just let me know what version of BGEE you have and what your device is. Once we have sorted that out, we should be able to create a mod kit with your selection.

    Please note that this would only work for the current version of BGEE. Once the game goes 2.x/3.x (whatever the new version will be), a new mod pack will have to be created or the new version might be modable on your device (we can dream).

    I'm on version 1.3.2070. And acer iconia one 10 device.

    I already have the battle enhancer mod installed. Will it conflict with the new mods?

  • GusindaGusinda Member Posts: 1,558
    I have never used that mod so I can't say whether it would or not, but if you install the new mod first then recopy the Battle Enhancer over, it should be preferenced.

    Hi @JCPheonix, If you have a look here, you will find a modfile for BGEE on Android. It will give you an idea of what the BG2Tweaks mod looks like. Have a try of you want.

    For installation, rename the override folder to something else to begin with, copy the file across and start a new game. I would recommend at the moment as it is only BG2Tweaks and the others include NPC_EE but there is no harm in trying any of them; all the deatils are included. Once you know that it works, you can rename the override folder back to what it was and see what the impact of Battle Enhancer is on the game or start a new one. IE: whether Battle Enhancer overrides what is in the modfile or whether the modfile takes charge...

    I am interested to know if you try this and what the impact is... Actually, might give this a go myself just for fun.

    If this works well, then we can build another with the mod components that you would like from either BG2Tweaks or Tweaks Anthology.


    Had a play with both and Battle Enhancer. Seemed to work well. I am not overly familar with Battle Enhancer but some of the battles had increased difficulty; there appeared to be no conflict (at least for the part I played).
    Whilst I was playing, I also thought that you might be keen to play using the open beta patch coming out next week. I know I am, so for me initially, it will be vanilla...

    Hi @JCPheonix, attached is the modfile for most of what you have requested. The note attached explains what wasn't installed, which was mostly that the mod components were for BG2 only.

    The Sleep Fix was only for BG Vanilla (an .exe file mod), so it wouldn't work in the EE version.

    I did a quick test with Battle Enhancer mod installed and it seemed not to conflict. But it was only quick; essentially started a new game, head out and finished the first screen away from Candlekeep...

    If you need any further changes, let me know and I can make them.

    To install, remove any other modfile that you might have tried (you can leave your override folder with Battle Enhancer) and copy this into your '/android/data/com.beamdog.baldursgateenhancededition/files' folder (the one with baldur.ini).

    Happy Gaming
    Edit: Spelling

  • JCPheonixJCPheonix Member Posts: 21
    Thank you Gus. I'll download it when I get home. :)

  • JCPheonixJCPheonix Member Posts: 21
    Gus, I get an error when I try to unzip the file. It appears the file is corrupt or something.

  • GusindaGusinda Member Posts: 1,558
    @JCPheonix, what program are you trying to unzip with? Also, this file doesn't need to be unzipped. Just place it as is in your '/android/data/com.beamdog.baldursgateenhancededition/files' folder (the one with baldur.ini). It has been made ready for BGEE 1.3.2070. It is unlikely to work if you have updated to the Beta 2.5.x due to the dialog.tlk difference.

    For info, I downloaded the and was able to unpack using WinRAR (on Windows) and ES File Explorer (on Android).

    Oh. I'm using es file explorer on android and still can't unpack it. Could you rehost it?

    Hi @JCPheonix, I can reupload (attached) it but there is no need to unpack the file... Just place the file as it is in the '/android/data/com.beamdog.baldursgateenhancededition/files' folder (the one with baldur.ini) and start the game. If the game crashes, then there is a problem and let me know. If it does crash, can you let me know whether you have updated to the beta?

    The modfile won't work if you unpack it due to the file 'dialog.tlk' not being in the right location. If you want to be able to unpack the file for whatever reason, I can redo the modfile to make it work, but as I said, there is no need.


  • JCPheonixJCPheonix Member Posts: 21
    It works but all my weapon proficiencies turned to blank, negating the attack bonuses. What can be done about that?

  • GusindaGusinda Member Posts: 1,558
    Hi @JCPheonix,this might be a conflict with the Battle Enhancer mod. Did you start a new game or continue from a previous save? If you continued, then could you start a new game and see what happens with the proficiencies? Also if this is still a problem, could you do a quick test and rename the 'override' folder to 'override.1' (that will take the Battle Enhancer mod out of play) and try again?

    Once that has been tested, and all worked, if you want to finish the original game, then you might have to play that without the Tweaks modfile... (rename the 'override.1' folder back to 'override' and remove the file).

    Hope all goes well and have a great Christmas

  • JCPheonixJCPheonix Member Posts: 21
    It works when I start a new game. Looks like I'll have to start a new game. Merry Christmas Gus.

    I thought I'd add a little override mod that makes Tazok killable in the bandit camp. It removes the MIHP1.ITM he has equipped.

    I made a version for unmodded BG1:EE and another for with SCS installed. Simply extract into your override before you meet Tazok for the first time.

    Note: If you manage to kill Tazok before his dialogue trigger, make sure to quickly save as soon as you see "Tazok - Death" and then reload (or else your game will be stuck in dialogue mode). For no reload games, deal less than 98 dmg, let him talk to you, then off the bugger.

    For Deheriana...

    I also made this small tweak to Xan's moonblade to revert it back to "Longsword" proficiency. (This doesn't mod the DIALOG.TLK file however, so description text will still read "Dagger".)

    True-blooded elven kin of Xan (or powergamers), combine this with the ITEM_USE.2DA file (reposted from @Erg) to claim your birthright after he "valiantly falls" in battle.
