How to install Dungeon Siege 2 (and Broken World) mods




Hi Everyone!

Apparently DS2 is such an old game now that installation instructions may be required because they are hard to find on the internet!

  • Mods are packed in resource files, commonly with the ds2res extension.
  • In your installation of Dungeon Siege II, there should be a Resources folder, such as Dungeon Siege 2\Resources. If you have Broken World installed, find the Resources folder of the Broken World installation instead (possibly in a subdirectory of Program Files\2K Games\ ).
  • Copy the ds2res file of the mod into the Resources subdirectory.
  • Note that mod makers cannot typically resolve mod conflicts with someone else's mod -- that is, errors caused by two or more mods having modified the same resource file.

  1. I did that... But when I do so, the game doesn't recognize my saves and I can't continue with the mods... Whenever I remove them and run the game again, it recognizes them.. I want to play with the mods and I don't want to start again for I have reached a high level.. PLEASE HELP!!

  2. @Anonymous - That's a feature to protect the integrity of savegames. To get around that, you need the third-party AllSaves patch by Elys, or to start a completely new game with the mods you want to use. Try...

  5. Hi Sam,
    Strange that it is talking about files waiting to be burned to disc. Are you sure you are not dragging files into a DVD drive and that drive is waiting for confirmation to burn? Mods go to the hard drive into which you have installed the game. Do not burn them onto a CD or DVD.

    Good luck!
