Dark Side of the Sword Coast

Dark Side of the Sword Coast is a free expansion for Baldur's Gate and Tales of the Sword Coast, made by TeamBG.

The module installation removes all files from the Override directory, original Bioware fixes especially as they are supposed to be included in the expansion. Unfortunately, I discovered some original fixes from Bioware (at least from the the last International 1.5512 or DX8 patches as I am using the French version) are not included on my installation. I don't know if this is very important, however I decided to make them available.

Kevin Dorner made additional fixes to the original game, known as Baldurdash. A few files were in conflict with Dark Side of the Sword Coast. I just made a small update for Dark Side of the Sword Coast to fix that problem.

Ami francophones, vous pouvez trouver une traduction française de tous les textes du jeu (dialogues, description d'objets et de sorts, ...) sur le site Papa Olive Web. Les voix ajoutées par l'extension (pour les nouveaux NPC ou le texte d'introduction de l'extension) resteront en Anglais. Par ailleurs, j'ai constaté l'absence de certains messages parlés en français, absence qui provient de l'installation du patch pour Tales of the Sword Coast, version internationale 1.5512 qui enlève certains fichiers de sons en français qui étaient dans le répertoire Override. Vous pouvez les tÚlÚcharger si vous en avez marre de "You must gather your party..." et voulez la version française :-).

Baldurdash

You need the original FixPack from Kevin Dorner (get it here). Install it first. The small patch I made must be extracted after Baldurdash fix pack is installed as it will overwrite a few file from the original fix pack.

The full archive is once more available from Kevin Dorner's new site. If you want to download fixes one by one, fixes replaced in my archive for Dark Side of the Sword Coast are "Arrows Of Biting Damage Fix" and "Thief Scimitar Use Fix".

Please have a look to the Readme file included in the archive for more information on the fixes.

Installation is straight forward. Just extract the archive to the Baldur's Gate game directory (default from Bioware is C:\Program Files\Black Isle\Baldur's Game). The files will be extracted to the Override directory (provided the unzip program respect the directory structure of the archive).

Other fixes

Missing files from the original Bioware patches for international version may should apply for all versions. However, make a backup of the Override directory before installing the files, just in case... Read the included Readme file for more information and the list of files.

I also made a fix with French sound missing, which were present in the 1.5511 version but removed by the 1.5512 international patch.

To install these fixes, just extract the archive to the Baldur's Gate game directory (default from Bioware is C:\Program Files\Black Isle\Baldur's Game). The files will be extracted to the Override directory (provided the unzip program respect the directory structure of the archive) while the readme file will remain in the Baldur's Gate directory.
