Dungeon Siege Legendary Pack is a modification which allows playing the original Dungeon Siege and its expansion pack, Legends of Aranna using the enhanced Dungeon Siege 2 engine. The mod requires that the original games are installed prior to setup as original assets and maps have to be converted in order for them to be playable in Dungeon Siege 2. Setup will abort if the original games aren't detected prior to installation. About 1Gb of free HDD space will be required to install all 4 maps.

Dungeon Siege 2 Legendary Mod Beta 30

A Better Experience

After 3 years in development the mod is nearing the end of the beta phase with the release of Beta 30, the most complete and polished version yet.

Beta 30 Update

What is Fixed?

There have been numerous major and minor fixes addressed in this version to quests, textures, map features, items, conversations, balance, etc. Probably well over one hundred individual fixes thanks to the dedicated team of beta testers who test the maps and provide invaluable feedback.

New Maps to Play

There are two new maps to play with a couple of hours gameplay each - Return to Arhok and Diabloish. Plus there's better support for converting other user made Dungeon Siege maps to Dungeon Siege 2.

More Dungeon Siege Items

Over 180 extra Dungeon Siege armors and weapons have been converted for use in Dungeon Siege 2 and Broken World. This includes 25 special unique items like Merik's Staff, Starlight Vesture, Lord Hovart's Blood Armor and the Staff of Stars which level with the player.

Voice Pack Support

There's now voice pack support for Baldur Gate type party vocal acknowledgements to orders and spotting monsters built into the mod for the forthcoming Voice Packs for Dungeon Siege 2 and Legendary Mod to be released soon.

Further Enhancements

Textures for terrain and objects have been redone from scratch with even better bloom and enhanced detail filtering effects.

Beta 30 Update

New monsters have been added to an expanded Pit of Despair and other like the Doppelgangers, Whelnar's Eyes, Zepherylls and Swirling Midges have been restores whilst monsters like Gobbots and Drocs now act more like the originals. Some monsters and bosses now have passive skills like the player with skills like Ignite and Smite.
Recruitable dwarves now use the Broken World model for dual wielding and throwing weapon support which the preceding model didn't support.

Installation

It is important to note that the mod requires that the original Dungeon Siege and/or Legends of Aranna is installed prior to setup as original assets and maps have to be converted in order for them to be playable in Dungeon Siege 2 or Broken World. About 1.07 GB of free HDD space will be required to install all 6 maps in you own Dungeon Siege: Legends of Aranna, 855 Mb if you only have the original Dungeon Siege.

Since the mod has been significantly updated since the last public release, it is important to reinstall it and the installer will attempt to remove all previous Beta 13 or 14 files during installation. Please note that if you have downloaded any beta files from the mod's website, these will need to be removed manually for the mod to function properly.

Owners of the Steam versions of Dungeon Siege 1 and 2 should apply the appropriate Steam Registry Fix included in the zip unless they have already patched it previously. Otherwise the installer won't be able to find the games in order to install the mod.

Other than that, installation is an easy matter of just unzipping the installer and running it, confirming dialog choices and the EULA.

Wow I did not knew you guys had such big plans for this mod, great work! I love Dungeon Siege 1 and 2. Also I first thought this only worked for the utraean peninsula map, but so also for the singleplayer maps? Does that mean fully working quests?

Yes most of the original quests work in a similar manner. The Utraean Peninsula is a heavily modified singleplayer version of the original with recruitable characters, etc. There's also Kingdom of Ehb, Yesterhaven and Return to Arhok with Legends of Aranna available if you own that particular expansion pack to Dungeon Siege. Diabloish is a converted Dungeon Siege fan made map and there's plans to convert more fan made maps.

Hi lads, i have understood the goal of the mod ...but i dont understand everything..so we can play DS1 campaigns in DS2, weve got all the stuff from the first game and ..We can find new things of the 2nd game in the 1st campaign ? So a part graphics its possible to discover a new side of the first campaign ?? (i already did it many times so i dont want to download everything if its almost exactly the same thing in a different engine) ^^ thanks for the answer :)

Well you can play several maps from DS1, even 1 custom apperently; Diabloish. So that is like ~5 big maps including the multiplayer one. Also I think it will feel quite different with DS2 skills, powers and items.

ps: if you have not yet tried the utraean peninsula map, I can recommend that one especially since they say they have added quests and recruitable characters.

Was this the DS1 multiplayer map?

Yeah Utraean Peninsula is the DS1 multiplayer (only) map. It was the very big & open one with Eldim as the very center of the map. Works with this too I think.

Doesn't work for me. When i start a new game (from ds2) and i choose the ds1 campaign at the beginning of the loading the game crashes and a message saying that a fatal error has occured and that the file 'T_xxxFLR_08x08-VO' (mesh guid:0x010006B8) cannot be opened. I have dungeon siege 1 and 2 installed (i think both without expansions) in fact the instal process worked perfectly.. So where could be the problem?

If someone is looking for graphics mod, try to use Reshade+SweetFX or other shader packs. It works flawlessly:
