We've decided to open up the game repository for those interested in beta testing the latest versions of BG2. The way to access this is quite similar how the latest source code is accessed: subversion(svn). See http://forums.bgmod.com/index.php?showtopic=685

Windows:

Step 0: Install an SVN client. TortoiseSVN works fine( http://tortoisesvn.tigris.org/ ). This may or may not require a reboot.

For the rest, I'll quote Slash's guide from the team forums:

QUOTE (Slash)
Step 1: Go to your /Steam/SteamApps/SourceMods/ folder

Step 2: Create a folder in there called bg2-svn

Step 3: right click the bg2-svn folder and select "SVN Checkout ..."

Step 4: Enter "http://svn.bgmod.com/game/bg2" in the first field and the checkout directory should already be filled with the path of your BG2 folder. Click ok and enter your user account when prompted. [you don't need an account for read access now - Tjoppen]
[Edit: updated with new adress as stated in 2nd post - jackx]

Done.

Whenever you want to update this folder right click it and select "SVN Update".


Linux:

Step 0: apt-get install subversion
Step 1:
QUOTE (Slash)
cd /usr/local/games/Steam/SteamApps/SourceMods/; svn co http://svn.bgmod.com/game/bg2 bg2-svn


This is what I did on my box. It worked.

Just for clarification regarding the comments about the link: the link in the original post has been edited and now works.
This means that the tutorial is correct, the comments below it can be ignored.
