DOWNLOAD
-------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------

Below are the download links for the current build of BG Shadow Hand and its components.


Summary: This is a total conversion that provides our vision of a sequel to BG:ToB. It takes place in the Sword Coast 30 years after the events in Throne of Bhaal. Components of the mod will include: a GUI redesign/recolor add-on and a complete original soundtrack that will replace the game's music.

Requirements:
- A clean EasyTuTu installation. This means that you must have BG1 w/TotSC & BG2:ToB - all full installations. Obviously as this is a total conversion, it will not be compatible with most mods.


Notes: This is an alpha and there may and probably will be bugs/typos/terrible coding/whatever.


1) Baldur's Gate: Shadow Hand Total Conversion | Download Link version: Alpha 14 apprx. 48MB
Included:
- Conversion groundwork
- Main Quest playable through Chapter 4 up to the part before the final battles.
- All six NPCs are created and joinable
- A couple minor subquests in Ulgoth's Beard
- Parts of new soundtrack implemented

Still Needs to be Done/Refined:
- NPC content
- Background NPCs
- Get the hell out of Candlekeep
- Cutscenes
- Things you can actually fight with other than rabid chickens
- Final Battles

INSTALLATION
-------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------
1) Extract the contents of the zips to your EasyTuTu directory.

2) Run the setup-shadow_hand executable. Install the Shadow Hand Groundwork and the Shadow Hand Total Conversion.

3) Run the setup-SH_GUI executable. There will only be one component so just install that. If you hate it you can always uninstall it.

4) Run BG TuTu like you would normally.

GUIDE
(WARNING: Spoilers)
--------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------
Prologue:
- Jalin will speak to you. There are two quests you can do in Ulgoth's Beard before you leave.
- The rabid chicken one is having minor issues but is interesting regardless.
- In the next area, feel free to walk around. The rogues will find you.
- I bet you can't guess who the lady in Baldur's Gate is.

Chapter 1:
- Kifor is my favorite character. Go do what he says.
- You'll have to stay a few nights at the inn to see Sammi. In the completed version, Baldur's Gate will have more to do so it will be all right that Sammi is only there at night.
- Listen to the lady that talks a lot. It's semi important that you hear what she has to say.
- The Friendly Arm has a lovely NPC you can pick up.
- Get to Beregost. You'll need to find Jalin's friend. He'll be in one of the houses - try the northwest.
- I'm working on getting more innkeepers.
- There's an NPC in the Jovial Juggler.

Chapter 2:
- Go to Candlekeep. You'll actually be able to grab 2 NPCs on the way.
- Jen will talk about a favor she needs. This isn't coded right now so there is no favor quest yet.
- After you find the letter from that lady, you'll need to CTRL J to get out of the inner walls of Candlekeep. Sorry about that - it'll get fixed.
- Go to Ulcaster School. You can get another NPC here. The secret base is a little hard to find but I'm sure you can do it.

Chapter 3:
- Uh oh! Choices to be made. Have fun with this one.
- You'll need to find two important people. They're not too difficult to find. We plan to have a lot of subquests you can do on the side in this chapter. If you have any suggestions for subquests feel free to tell us.
- There are supposed to be guards from the opposing side that show up when you find these people or they will have their own guards. These aren't implemented yet so just pretend for now.
- Report back to the people that matter.

Chapter 4:
- There will be some dialogue here but nothing really happens. A battle or two is supposed to take place at the very end where you will face the opposing side.
END

NPCs:
For now the NPCs are simply joinable and have loving intro dialogues. I have some dialogue written and coded but not implemented yet. I'm still debating on who I want romanceable for sure and how I'm going to put that into the mod in terms of timing and location.

Items:
We plan on having some new items but they're not there yet.

Subquests:
There are only a couple but obviously we plan for more of those too.

Music:
Some of it is in the game and working. Some of it isn't in there yet and some of it is in the game but not working for some reason.

GUI:
Like it? Cool. Hate it? Uninstall it or give us some assistance since we aren't artists.
