How to install Baldur's Gate Trilogy on mac - Tuto

Just for those who wants to install BGT mod.

Posted by MrPchoun on Dec 30 2012 01:53 PM
Hi guys,

This is a little tutorial on how to install Baldurs Gate Trilogy on mac, whithout using bootcamp or either "copy-paste tricks". Notice that you must install both games on the same wrapper, and don't forget to install the extensions, TOSC for BG1 and TOB for BG2. Make sure that games don't ask the CD.

You will have, first, to install BG1 TOSC on wineskin, with the 5512 patch, unless you have the gog edition or 3cd edition ( then DO NOT patch the game ). Install It, launch it and run a new game. Quick save and quit.

Then, right click on the wineskin bottle, " show package contents ", double click on wineskin and click on " install " to install BG2 and throne of bhaal. Here again, you have to patch the game with the 26498 patch, unless you have the gog edition. Do a full installation, and make sure the game don't ask you CD when you change of map. Lauch a new game of TOB, Quick save and quit.

At this point, you should be able to launch either BG1 TOSC or BG2 TOB just by changing the path in wineskin preferences. If both games work fine, you can now start installing Baldurs Gate Trilogy.

Right click on the wrapper where you installed BG1 TOSC and BG2 TOB. Show package contents, then : drive_c / windows / command. Copy " start.exe " and paste it in the folder of BG2 TOB.

Here you can download Baldurs Gate Trilogy mod :

Unarchive it, and copy paste the files in BG2 TOB folder.

Now, return on your wrapper, and set the below line in the path of the wrapper :
/Program Files/(the direction of your BG2 TOB folder )/start.exe

Launch the wrapper. The windows command should appear, with that : C:/Program Files/ ( the direction of your BG2 TOB folder )>

After the " > ", just write setup-bgt.exe, and click enter. Install it.

Now, set the below line in the path of the wrapper :
/Program Files/(the direction of your BG2 TOB folder )/bgmain.exe

That's all, Baldur's Gate Trilogy is ready to be played.

Here is a video of this tutorial. It's in french but you just have to follow what I do.

You made a little mistake:

It should say right click instead of double click. I know it_s trivial but new users might get confused. You could also add some pictures if you want to accompany the text, it it's not that important, th guide is already well comprehensive.

Thanks for picking up the error, it's corrected now. Well it's a good idea, I think i will add some pictures later.

I desperately need help installing this. I followed every step right up until it says to launch the wrapper with start.exe and then everything falls apart from there. All what pops up is a wine command prompt screen which I can't edit. Any help at all would be much appreciated.
