    [​IMG] So I saw the game on a store today and bought it.
    I've installed the game but before start playing I wanted to know a few things related to the many bug errors I saw on these forums.
    1. Does the game need to be patched? Does the game needs some fan-made fixes (like Weidu's for BG)?
    2. Whatever patches/fixes/addons I'll need, what order should I follow to install them?
    I couldn't find anything that could answer those questions, so if they were answered, sorry.
    Thanks!

    Before playing, you definitely need to install at least some of the official Atari patches.

    Many people recommend playing the game through once with the three offical patches installed, then playing again with just patches 1 and 2 and the fan mod pack from the fine folks at Co8. That way you get to appreciate the add-ons done by the Co8 group. There is an excellent install thread at Co8, with all the links to everything needed, found:

    here

    Hope that helps.

    Very true, Taluntain. I wasn't trying to step on any toes. I just thought Zebedee's install instructions would be helpful for a TOEE "newbie." I know I referred to them many times when I started downloading their mods...

    No problem, just thought I'd mention it in case Sydax didn't know.

    I don't mind much where newbie's get the Co8 mod from, just as long as they do get it :grin:
