I tried every work-around I could find, including downloading the most recent WeiDU, running the script from the Baldur's Gate 2
folder within the GOG
...place them directly in the Baldur's Gate 2
I am having the same problem you describe having solved, but your solution is confusing.
In the failure example, you place the files in the Baldur's Gate 2 folder.
In the success example, you place the files in the same Baldur's Gate 2 folder.
I don't see how these are in any way different. I don't have a GOG/Baldur's Gate 2 folder with a complete game in it, and ANOTHER nonGOG Baldur's Gate 2 folder with the complete game in it as well.
I have one folder, called Baldur's Gate 2, where the three necessary files and folders are located when I run the .command file. Within that Baldur's Gate 2 folder, there is the game icon labelled Baldur's Gate 2, which is the executable package, not a folder.
What exactly is the difference you are describing? Do you put the fixpack items inside the Game icon called Baldur's Gate 2 itself? This would mean opening the Package.
I think he means taking the files out of the fix-pack folder and placing those files in the main directory (Baldur's Gate 2) folder.
So if the fix-pack was extracted to:
C:\gog\Baldur's Gate 2\Fixpack\fixpack.exe
You'd need to move the fixpack.exe one level higher:
C:\gog\Baldur's Gate 2\fixpack.exe
The bg2fixpack download, once un-zipped, is all contained with in a folder named osx-bg2fixpack-v10. I then take the bg2fixpack folder, setup-bg2fixpack, and setup-bg2fixpack.command and place them directly in the Baldur's Gate 2 folder
^Those three things are inside another folder named osx-bg2fixpack-v10 - take them out of that folder and move them one level higher into the BG2 main directory.
From your post it sounds like you've already done that - can you post a directory path for where those files and folders are on your system?
