A different installation problem with DS
« on: July 25, 2007, 09:49:26 AM »
Hello to everyone. I have downloaded DS Pack1 and 2. I have unzipped the contents of DS Pack1 as per instructions in the BG folder. I found 3 items, a DS folder, a "setup-ds.tp2" file and a "setup-ds.exe" file. I run the .exe file and i got this message:

*       Darkside of the Swordcoast     *

*  in your BG directory                 *

You are using an old version of DS. You really should be using version 1.03. You can get it here: http://forums.chosenofmystra.net/index.php?topic=14.0
Little is known of Nirel, a powerful cleric who could resist the spells of his enemies. However, history does record that he was a vile zealot whose hatred for followers of other faiths knew almost no bounds. It is said that he kept the heads of his victims as trophies and was personally responsible for defiling over one hundred temples of other faiths. In the centuries since, his mace has appeared in the hands of evil clerics across the Realms.

I have downloaded and run the new version you proposed. The MSDOS window worked properly. I'll try to play the game later on. Thanks for the address and i hope i won't have any other problem.

From Sorcerers Place:

Quote
Download Locations:

    * Chosen of Mystra - WeiDU version (Ext.)
    * Blackwyrm Lair (Ext.)
    * IEGMC (Ext.)

CoM is well our version which is up to date.

BWL is for the Baldur's Gate Trilogy version.

IEGMC is using the old ancient non Weidu version.
