Hello out there, is there an installer for Definitive Edition as well?

Thank you

Caliban72: Hello out there, is there an installer for Definitive Edition as well?
I don’t know how Definitive Edition is distributed: do you get a single installer, or an installer for the base game + installers for the two parts of The White March?

If it uses multiple installers, I guess the ./play.it script should work on them.
The installation has several files: one huge Pillars of Eternity main file with a size of 7GB. Three patches, the extentions The WHite March - Part I and II. Further more some smaller files Deadfire Pack and Pre Order Bonus Item and Pet.

Thanks and best regards Christian

From what you wrote it seems the files are the same in the Definitive Edition than the ones we get by buying all parts of the game separately. This means that the ./play.it script should support the Definitive Edition too, without any modification needed.
Hi vv221, what about the patchfiles which are now part of this distribution?

Cheers

The patches have no use if you download the currently available installer for the main game, their purpose is to upgrade older versions of the game.
Hi vv221 thank you. The installer is really a powerfull tool. I created 3 Debian packages out of the downloaded archive. I also changed the install path from /usr/local to /opt/games since I do not have enough space on my /root partition. And also because I made this directory for comercial games in general. With the option --prefix=/opt/games I was able to customize my Installation. But I couldn't apply theese changes to the extentions "The White March 1 + 2". I executed the creation of these Debian packages with the same prefix and was able to install the package. But the expansions are not installed. In the main screen of the game these expansions are shown as "not installed". If click on the expansion, the whole game crashes!

What is to do with this constellation?

Thank you in advance.
