Planescape Torment Mods

(Original Version…  NOT the “Enhanced” Edition)

 

   Planescape Torment, in my opinion, is one of the most interesting RPGs of its day.  If you're lucky enough to have the original version via GOG from before the Chaotic Evil day of the "Enhanced" Edition, you can install the mods listed below that make it look way better than the ONLY FRIGGIN version easily available online now.  Fans of this awesome game made the mods below, but it can be difficult to figure out what modifications to use & in which order they should be installed.  Thanks to ThunderPeel2001, who originally posted a article on his blog & GOG for reposting it on 24 DEC 1991, I am able to present an updated & more detailed version of their articles.

   All of these wonderful things are possible thanks to the hard work of the following Planescape Torment fans: Qwinn, scient, GhostDog, Biggs, Air, Jeff Vader.

IMPORTANT NOTES:

These mods were installed on an Acer Predator Helios PH315-51 with a 15.6" LCD Monitor & the screen resolution is set to 1920 x 1080.  If you have difference settings, some of the below guide will need to be changed up.

Installing these mods can & usually will invalidate your existing saved games, so be prepared to start over once they have been installed!  If you’re in the middle of a game, & don't want to lose your progress, you should stop now.

Don't stress out trying to get the setting right in one go!  All the mods below, can be run via the setup files multiple times in order to change your options.  If you don't like a setting you picked, run the associated setup file again & pick a different option. ;)

What it does:
   This Mod allows you to play Planescape: Torment at a higher resolution, making the game look a whole lot better, especially on flat screen monitors.

 

How to install:

  1. Download the Bigg's Widescreen mod HERE.
  2. Right-click on widescreen-v2.60.exe & Select Run as Administrator.
  3. Select Accept.
  4. Select Browse & navigate to the directory where Planescape: Torment is installed on your computer.
    • The directory where torment.exe is installed by default via GOG is:  C:\GOG Games\Planescape Torment
  5. Select Install
  6. When the new window opens, type 0 for English.
  7. Type N to bypass the “Readme” file.  (You can view this if you wish but it isn’t needed if you’re following this guide)
  8. Type 1 to install “The Original Infinity Engine (CHOOSE THIS!)”
  9. When asked for your X-coordinates enter the number of pixels wide you would like the resolution to be.
    • I used 1920
  10. When asked for your Y-coordinates enter the number of pixels high you would like the resolution to be.
    • I used 1080
  11. Type Y when asked if you want to “Update your Save Games”.
  12. Type Y when asked if you want to “Enable Support for Multiple Resolutions”.
  13. Type 1920 for the BIGGEST X coordinate.
  14. Type 1080 for the BIGGEST Y coordinate.
  15. Type Y to confirm the selection.
  16. Press ENTER to close the window.
  17. LAUNCH the game to verify it has installed correctly then continue to STEP 2.  (The game will launch but only display the image in the top left corner…  STEP 2 is required to fix this.)

Note: You MUST follow the next step in order to fix the graphics at this new higher resolution!

What it does:
   Unfortunately, increasing the resolution of the game will knock many special graphical effects out of place, put videos in the top left corner of your screen, make the menu screens look really ugly, & possibly even make the text really hard to read. Luckily this mod fixes ALL the above problems... It's really quite amazing!

   This mod is a little trickier to install, but it's worth it, & all of the mods in the later steps are installed in the same way...

 

How to install:

  1. Download Ghostdog's mod HERE.
  2. Extract the entire archive, Ghostdogs_PST_UI_mod_v2.2, directly into the game directory where Planescape: Torment is installed on your computer.
    • The directory where torment.exe is installed by default via GOG is:  C:\GOG Games\Planescape Torment
  3. Once you have done this, right-click on the setup file Setup-GhostDog's-PST-UI.exe from within the game's directory & Select Run as Administrator.
  4. Type N to bypass the “Readme” file.  (You can view this if you wish but it isn’t needed if you’re following this guide)
  5. Type I to install the "Planescape Torment User Interface”
  6. In the window that opens you will then get five options: (Ghostdog has provided a screenshot to help you decide.)
    • Install the mod with 20% bigger fonts
    • Install the mod with 40% bigger fonts
    • Install the mod with 80% bigger fonts
    • Install the mod with 120% bigger fonts
  7. Type the NUMBER associated with the font size you want.  (I used 3 "80% English")
  8. Press ENTER to close the window.
  9. LAUNCH the game to verify it has installed correctly then continue to STEP 3.  (If it doesn't load or display properly, redo the steps above before continuing to STEP 3)

What it does:
   The Unfinished Business patch adds many missions back into the game that the designer's didn't have time to finish. These are missions that should be in the game, but time & money constraints meant they were left out, despite being close to completion.

  9. Press ENTER to close the window.
  10. Continue to STEP 4.
