This thread is devoted to comments, bug reports and fixes and discussion about the Beta version of the DS1 Map Pack for Dungeon Siege 2 and Dungeon Siege 2: Broken World.
This mod allows players the opportunity to play Kingdom of Ehb, Utraean Peninsula, Legends of Aranna and Yesterhaven from the original Dungeon Siege in Dungeon Siege 2 and it's expansion, with all the benefits that provides.
The mod is based on Killergremal's original work on the Utraean Peninsula, Kingdom of Ehb and Yesterhaven, found at this thread; http://siegetheday.org/?q=node/1330 Current version is Beta 30 and is fully feature complete, stable and fun to play. You will need a 550 Mb download as well as 1Gb of free HD space to install the mod.

Current Readme for the Mod
Installer Notes: You need at least the original Dungeon Siege for the installer to work. In this case it'll install Kingdom of Ehb, Utraean Peninsula and Yesterhaven maps as well as converting the required resources required to play these maps in DS2. If you have Legends of Aranna installed the Mod installer will also install Legends of Aranna together with converting the required resources from LOA. As a bonus Return to Arhok and the third party map Diabloish will be available to play as well.
Included in the installer zip is pre-install fixes for owners of the Steam version of Dungeon Siege 1 and 2. These fixes will need to be applied before installation of the DS1 Legendary Mod or installation will fail.
Owners of the Steam version of DS2 will also need to use this modified launcher otherwise there will be issues with playing the mod, especially if updates are used. Please note that this is due to the crippled version of DS2 distributed by Steam and not due to this mod, indeed all mods will be affected by this. The SteamDS2AllSaves launcher will fix this issue for all mods and as a bonus will/should restore multiplayer options for Steam DS2.

Alternatively all the mod's components can be downloaded as separate modules.
If you choose to do this you'll need to convert some of the original Dungeon Siege resources to DS2 format otherwise the mod won't work. This won't be necessary if you have already converted the original files for any of the beta versions of the mod. Please note that the mod must be installed in the Dungeon Siege 2 resources folder even if you own Broken World. Unexpected glitches will occur if you don't.

To play these maps you also have to convert already installed DS1 files for DS2, namely Objects.dsres, Sound.dsres and Voices.dsres. It's not that difficult, but it's an essential step because the mods above will refer on these resources. Instructions here; http://siegetheday.org/?q=node/1525#comment-13640
Please note that it is important that the Objects ds2res be named Objects_DS1.ds2res or something similar to avoid a bug with button levers
Additionally to play Legends of Aranna you need to convert expansion.dsmap and ExpVoices.dsres using the exact same method (It's no longer required to tank or untank resource files).
It's recommended to use the auxiallary tool to convert the resources rather than a Hex Editor as that seems to cause issues. The auxiallary tool is also easier to use.
Some useful minimods that may be of interest playing these maps.
