Missing executable?

Post by devil956 » Sat Sep 12, 2015 2:37 am

Hello, love your mod, played it alot from '08-'10.

Tried installing it and patching it over but it seems that there is no executable file in the install or the patch. maybe its been a long time and I am missing a step?
Any help would be appreciated.

You mean you are looking for an executable in the stuff you downloaded so you can install the game, or have you installed the game and are looking for an exe in what you installed?

2.2 should be an executable installer: http://www.moddb.com/mods/battle-ground ... -installer

The 2.2 to 2.3 patch is a zip file with no executable to install it. You need to extract it the old fashioned way:

If what you mean is you installed the game and there is a missing executable once you installed everything, try here to see if this works:

Also make sure you restart steam after installing and updating: http://bg2mod.com/forum/viewtopic.php?f=17&t=83

Thanks I got it working, not very many active players now it looks like. Sure wish you guys could get this game directly onto steam, might breathe more life into it.

It's good to hear that it's working now. We're working on a small fix for 2.3, then onto 3.0. The plan is to try to get 3.0 on Steam.
