Download links and installation instructions.

General WeiDU Mod installation guide for BG2:SoA and ToB expansion:

1. Install BG2:SoA, the ToB expansion and the ToB official patch.
2. Take backup copies of your dialog.tlk and the override folder. (Optional.)
3. Install any non-WeiDU mods that overwrite files.
4. Install the Bg2 Fixpack. (Optional but recommended.)

5. After completing all of the above, install your WeiDU mods, including Amber.

If you plan to play a multiplayer game, everyone should install the same patches and mods in exactly the same order. Alternatively, you can take the relevant files and folders after step 5 and copy them to the other players. In Amber's case, these include:
* \override\ (the contents of the override folder)
* \dialog.tlk
* \music\m#blank.mus
* \music\mxm#am.mus
* \music\mxm#am\
* \scripts\M#AmbeAI.bs
The other players should still perform steps 1 and 2 before this.

In our experience it is very important that the override folder and dialog.tlk file are identical for all players.

Amber the NPC Mod installation (Windows):

This mod requires the Throne of Bhaal expansion for Baldur's Gate 2.

To install Amber, simply unzip the file you downloaded (Amber-v21.zip) into your main BG2 folder and run Setup-Amber.exe - the setup program will now ask if you want to install:

1. Amber the NPC mod for BGII:SoA - the mod itself.
2. Multiplayer-friendly flirts for Amber - an optional module that allows flirting without pausing the game, enabling the other players of a multiplayer game to do things while you flirt.

Both components are available in English and German.

The program will then proceed to uncompress audio and area graphics; this may take a while. If you wish to uninstall Amber, simply click Setup-Amber.exe again and select [U]ninstall.

Amber the NPC Mod installation (OSX Macintosh):

If the mod was previously installed, uninstall it before extracting the new version. This mod is packaged and installed with WeiDU. To install, simply extract the contents of the mod into your BG2 folder. If properly extracted, you should have a amber folder, Setup-Amber, and Setup-Amber.command in your BG2 folder. To install, simply double-click Setup-Amber.command and follow the instructions on screen.

Amber the NPC Mod installation (Linux):

Extract the contents of the mod to the folder of the game you wish to modify. Download the latest version of WeiDU for Linux from WeiDU.org and copy WeiDU and WeInstall to /usr/bin. Following that, open a terminal, cd to your BG2 installation directory, run 'tolower' and answer Y to both queries. You can avoid running the second option (linux.ini) if you've already ran it once in the same directory. To save time, the archive is already tolowered, so there's no need to run the first option (lowercasing file names) either if you've extracted only this mod since the last time you lower cased file name. If you are unsure, running tolower and choosing both options is the safe bet. Run WeInstall amber in your game folder to install the mod. Then run wine BGMain.exe and start playing.

The version 1.1 fixes the problem that prevented Amber from installing properly if you had previously installed Item Upgrade.
Ihmeellinen meri

Kummalliset kalat liukuvat syvyydessä,
tuntemattomat kukat loistavat rannalla;
olen nähnyt punaista ja keltaista ja kaikki toiset värit -
mutta ihana meri on vaarallista nähdä,
se herättää tulevien seikkailujen janon:
mitä on tapahtunut sadussa, on tapahtuva minullekin.

Step 2 should now be BG2 Fixpack and not Baldurdash. :) Also, Amber's now up on the IEGMC and DH mirrors if you wish to expand the d/l list.
Don't you worry about Planet Express, let me worry about blank.
