Please note that the mod must be installed in the Dungeon Siege 2 resources folder even if you own Broken World. Unexpected glitches will occur if you don't.

The installer version also includes a number of min-mods and a simple mod manager to enable them, which isn't available if you download the mod as separate modules below.

This mod allows players the opportunity to play Kingdom of Ehb, Utraean Peninsula, Legends of Aranna and Yesterhaven from the original Dungeon Siege in Dungeon Siege 2 and it's expansion, with all the benefits that provides. Think of it as more of a remastered version of the original Dungeon Siege than a mere port to a newer engine.

The mod is based on Killergremal's original work on the Utraean Peninsula, Kingdom of Ehb and Yesterhaven, found at this thread; http://siegetheday.org/?q=node/1330

Elys All*Saves or Elys' Succubus Manager is recommended to play the mod, which most users of this site probably already use. However either use v1 of All*Saves or turn off the seefar option in the launcher as the mod incorporates seefar moods directly in the maps for better balance without the glitches and distortions caused by using a too high a level of seefar in the launcher. Version 1 of Elys All*Saves is distributed in the installer version in original DS2 (v2.2), Broken World (v2.3) and Steam versions.

Much Needed Cleanup indeed

Yes I absolutely agree and I will work towards that in the next few weeks. Manual installation of the files will generally avoid any issues encountered in installing the mod but we have to be careful about BIG BROTHER watching over our shoulders.

Same Folder

I believe that he probably has Killah's Dungeon Siege 2 fix installed and choose to install it in the DS2 resources folder. That's one way of making Broken World work with the Steam version of DS2 as Steam doesn't create registry entries for DS2, which Broken World depends on in order to both install itself and run. You can manually create the necessary entries and install Broken World but then the Broken World resources folder would probably be located in the 2K Games folder.

I would suggest reinstalling Broken World to a separate folder as it is a known issue that having both DS2 and Broken World files in the same resources folder can cause problems.

New install - new fun

i did what you recommended and reinstalled the game from scratch and after applying the steam fix i installed the mod - now i get to the main menu Party but the mouse cursor is missing (i could skip the video with a mouse click though Puzzled )

EDIT

the vanilla DungeonSiege2.exe displays the cursor

The other way around

@Cend: If you like to try it out once, just install the normal/official Steam release (with no other fixes, updates, etc.). Then the Legendary Mod here.

Iryan respected the official Steam release as good as possible regarding on technical and legal aspects. So there is a high chance for a successful installation.
If you want go on then installing other downloads, it's on to you.

re: Ressources Folder

Ressources Folder (as requested by Iryan)

Here is the content of my ressources folder.

Update

I'll try that.
Thanks Smile

[edit]

Ok now i got the installation to work(reinstalled everything from scratch, edited the registry entries for current - still nonstandard - path and added the mklink folders for the standard path).

Now i have the same issue the anonymous person below had: it crashes after the loading dots in the beginning get displayed when using the "Dungeon Siege 2 Steam AllSaves" link, normal link works but the older saves are not visible.

Hi Cend

At the present time iryan the creator of the legendary mod is off on summer vacation. Yes it is summer in Australia. He does check his mail here so, I recommend you register with the site and send him a PM referencing your post in the legendary mod thread. I am sure when he checks his mail he will reply to your question

While trying to install the

While trying to install the beta33 i'm running into the problem that it does not recognize my DS1 installation
-it's the steam version of the games
-used Killah's updates to the games (also ran the reg file)
-ran your steamfix (non-standard path - had to use mklink to be able to run your steamfix)

it now tells me it's not able to find either DS1 or LOA

is there a possible fix for it or can i get the files as a zip perhaps (preferably with instructions ^^)?

What about adding to weapons

What about adding to weapons and spells the "average amount of damages dealt for 10 seconds" that was present in the LOA expansion, when I began to play DS2 I was somewhat shocked by the fact it had disapppeared !

It's a good question, luckily you are not the first one asking it, so there's actually a work-around.

Basically there are two matters:
- You can't access the BW map if you didn't defeat Valdis before.
- If your level is too high, you will encounter low-levelled monsters (as sigofmugmort1 pointed),
  low exp and low-levelled loot (compared to your current level).

 
So I recommend talking to the ghost on the Tutorial Beach or in Eirulan (DS2 main map, you always can get there) in order to grant you access to the BW map.
You can then try to access the BW map. Should you be unlucky with your level or the level of monsters, then add the following row into the DungeonSiegeBrokenWorld.ini file:

	monster_adjust_world = ds2_world,ds2x_world

No, you still start at

No, you still start at Mercenary but the MLA doe not adjust the levels so things will be easy. There is a portal allowing you to jump to the higher levels in DS2 but you still have to play Broken World in order including completing the lower levels of DS2

Level 39 locked out?

Have you heard that Chris

Have you heard that Chris Taylor have left Wargaming Seattle to create a new independant studio ?

Maybe he will be more available and able to help you for te legendary mod (at least to answer some question you could ask him in order to improve the mod)...

Yes they are stable, and yes you can get them individually. Note all of the files will not be labeled 33A. I will post a list of the most current files unless iryan or sigofmugmort beat me to it. I am not currently in the same state of being as my computers.

LOA

Just 2 errors in the quest thingie with Special Delivery and The Trapper.
Regarding The Trapper quest, I did a little test run afterwards and if you speak to the quest giver first it completes but if you send yellow wotsitsname to the afterlife like I did before receiving the quest it doesn't complete. :?
Its the first time I've ever played LOA so I didn't know about that Trapper quest, well that's my excuse and I'm sticking to it. Tongue

Amongst the other things to

Amongst the other things to translate, there's the non-interactive objects like signs which only purpose is to display a text in the upper border of the screen when you put the cursor on it, as well as textures to replace by their french equivalents (all textures with names/warnings on it have been "translated" in both KOE and LOA), of course there are corrections to bring to the KOE translation and all the issues I have mentionned on the previous post !
