Dark Side of the Sword Coast
An unofficial add-in game modification for Baldur's Gate: Tales of the Sword Coast.

- Frequently Asked Questions -

What do I need to use this mod?

You need a clean install of Baldur's Gate with the Tales of the Sword Coast exspansion. A full install is recommended.


Is "Dark Side of the Sword Coast" playable without Tales of the Sword Coast installed?

No. Many items and spells will not work right and will crash the game and many reused areas will not exist due to not having Tales of the Sword Coast.


Can I use a save game after installing DS?

No. You have to start a new game to get the most out of DS. You may miss out on some of the quests or the custom items that DS adds.


Can I play "Dark Side of the Sword Coast" in multiplayer mode?

Of course. Just like the official game, its official expansion and the previous games using this game engine; as long as all players have the same game elements installed, all can play together in multiplayer mode.


What about the official patches?

All official patches need to be installed *PRIOR* to installing "Dark Side of the Sword Coast". Installing any official patch after installing "Dark Side of the Sword Coast" will ruin the game install as the official patches do not take an install of "Dark Side of the Sword Coast" into account. *NOTE* The Original Saga three disk edition of Baldur's Gate does not need to be patched. The patch is included in that version of the game.


Can I have custom new items, spells and other such custom files installed with "Dark Side of the Sword Coast" being installed?

Yes, you should be able to install them without any problems.


What languages will "Dark Side of the Sword Coast" be available in?

Besides English, so far there is a German translation of the mod. We look forward to having more translations added.


Why did you revise this mod?

It's a great mod, the first one for Baldur's Gate released originally by TeamBG. It's a mod that has had it's "issues" that hopefully have been resolved.
