First, thanks for the guide, it's been amazingly useful.
I've not had any problems with the installation so far, although the BGT installation took ages but i suppose that's to be expected considering what it does.
13. Go to your Baldur's Gate II directory, then find and run the file Setup-BGTMusic.exe and select 'Hybrid Baldur’s Gate/Shadows of Amn/Throne of Bhaal music'. This makes it possible to hear the original Baldur's Gate music when playing Baldur's Gate I.
With regards to the above according to the postinstall readme i have 3 options when i run Setup-BGTMusic.exe:
1. Full Baldur’s Gate and Tales of the Sword Coast music: Activates all original Baldur’s Gate and Tales of the Sword Coast music. If you play Shadows of Amn and/or Throne of Bhaal with this component installed, the music heard will be incorrect. For best results, when you decide that you want to play Shadows of Amn and/or Throne of Bhaal, uninstall this component to restore the default music for Shadows of Amn and Throne of Bhaal.
2. Hybrid Baldur’s Gate/Shadows of Amn/Throne of Bhaal music: Keeps all music for Shadows of Amn and Throne of Bhaal, but activates only some music for Baldur’s Gate and Tales of the Sword Coast. Effort has been made to ensure the music is as appropriate as possible for each area.
3. Full Baldur's Gate/Shadows of Amn/Throne of Bhaal Music (WARNING: patches BGMain.exe): Utilises a hack to the executable created by Taimon to allow all Baldur's Gate I and Baldur's Gate II music to be used. The executable hack increases the numbers of SONGLIST.2DA rows supported by the game. Use at your own risk.
Now i know that you recommend option 2 but it would seem to me that in order to try and keep the games as much like they were intended to be while obviously still using BGT that option 3 would actually be the better option, however i'm assuming that the reason you recommend option 2 over option 3 is due to the patch of BGMain.exe hence the warning given in the postinstall readme.
My question is, is it really such a bad idea to use option 3 and if so what are the dangers? I mean i also installed TobEX prior to the BG2 Fixpack & from my understanding that also patches the BGMain.exe but is recommended by a lot of people.
Thanks in advance for any help guys.
P.s Having read that through it sounds a little argumentative to me. It isn't meant to i just didn't know how else to phrase it.
