Baldur's Gate II: Shadows Of Amn Bugfixes

Last updated: 2003 - Mar. - 08

The one-and-only final patch has left a few "issues" unresolved, so I am doing what I can to repair them. I've moved all the fixes off the main page as there were so many of them that I have made so far, and more are possible. I've also moved all of them into one self-installing archive "fixpack" so that you can install them all at once, or just download and install the ones you want from the list below it. All files have been thoroughly tested, some I played completely through the game with just to ensure they worked and didn't cause further problems.

Simply click the disk icon to download the file. Files are ZIPped so require WinZip, PKUnzip or equivalent unless otherwise noted that they are self-installing. All these downloads include description/instructions, and they can all be installed without any instructions (they go in the Override folder.) Please make sure to read the ReadMe files included with all of these archives!
IMPORTANT: None of these files should be installed on top of the Throne Of Bhaal expansion! As well, if you are planning on installing Throne Of Bhaal, it does (and is supposed to) replace the Game Text Update completely.

Download The FixPack v.3.61 FixPack v3.61 (2001 - Sept. - 16) (MD5 hash DA0DE4B972300D979195D52FA7B48E64) contains all of the fixes below in a self-installing executable that will find your Baldur's Gate 2 Override folder. This Fixpack does not add any functionality to Fixpack 3.6, but changes all the last modification dates of the files to 1995, preventing the problem where BioWare's installers refused to overwrite newer files. You should still use the Uninstaller above before installing Throne of Bhaal. 385KB. Two caveats: the files JAHEIRAP.DLG, SW1H24.ITM, SW1H40.ITM, PLAT11.ITM and SPWI603.SPL will be deleted by this FixPack if present in your Override folder, and if you're playing a CE-aligned mage or sorcerer and have already cast Find Familiar, do not let your familiar die or you will not be able to summon another one, nor will the current familiar's Blur ability be restored by this fix.
Download The English-Language Game Text Update v1.3 English-Language Game Text Update v1.3 (2003 - Mar. - 08) (MD5 hash F3E45D9E3DDDF2542E6CC4B4B4D038AF) vastly improves all the game text: weapon descriptions are now more accurate, multi-damage or non-obvious weapons list their true enchantment level and all kits are present in the restrictions, familiars' descriptions contain all their abilities and match them properly, the kits' descriptions were corrected, hundreds of typos/spelling/grammatical/punctuation errors were eliminated, and many other changes were made to make Baldur's Gate II more enjoyable. Self-installing, 2.32MB. (Given its size, this fix is separate from the FixPack and all other fixes below.) This will definitely (barring problems) be the final update for this item now that further errors found when doing the ToB update have been retroactively applied.
Download Pre-Throne Of Bhaal Prep Uninstaller v3.6 Throne Of Bhaal Pre-Install Prep Uninstaller v3.6 (MD5 hash 30F387DBE3388CD8E8C4786BE1248A25) prepares your system for a bug-free installation of Throne Of Bhaal. It automatically removes all Baldurdash fixes, all Tweaks and Cheats that can be found on Baldurdash, several more problematic patches from elsewhere, restores 15 official BioWare patch files that may have been overwritten from fixes/tweaks/cheats, and fixes the DIALOG.TLK last-modification date problem if you've installed my Game Text Update or any third-party custom items (such as .TBG items.) And it's only 110KB! Note: As this uninstaller contains compiled DOS batch code, it is not guaranteed to function under Windows NT or Windows 2000... but neither is BG2! DO NOT run this after Throne of Bhaal is installed! It is designed to refuse to install if Throne of Bhaal is present, but a missing registry key may prevent this. It will not remove the Bonus CD Merchants.

Individual fixes contained in the FixPack above: (newest to oldest, green icon indicates new or updated in the most recent FixPack)
Unholy Blight Permanent THAC0 & Save Change Fix Unholy Blight Permanent THAC0 & Save Change Fix resolves the severe bug whereby the THAC0 and Saving Throw penalty of this 4th level evil-aligned priest spell was permanent and undispellable for all caster levels against good-aligned creatures, including the protagonist and party.
Download Tears Of Bhaal Fear & Selfish Tests Fix Tears Of Bhaal Fear & Selfish Tests Fix resolves the error that caused the results of the Greed test to be used when unlocking the Fear lock on the Abyssal door prior to the final battle, so the path taken in the Fear test was inconsequential, the error with the Selfish test whereby only the "good path" was ever counted in the results, and the confusing oversight whereby the alignment shift to Neutral Evil was never made apparent to the player. Thanks to Eddy L.O. Jansson for the Fear Test component of the this bugfix! This update, with many thanks to Beige Tangerine, prevents already-evil but not Neutral-Evil protagonists from shifting to Neutral Evil by taking the "evil path" on the tests.
Download Fixed Cumulative Effect Spells Fixed Cumulative Effect Spells corrects the following spells from being cumulative/stackable, with their effects adding up over multiple castings: priest spells Armor of Faith, Doom, Resist Fire/Cold, Protection From Fire, Defensive Harmony, Holy Power, Righteous Magic, the wizard spells Friends, Blur, Protection From Fire, Protection From Cold, Protection From The Elements and Protection From Energy, and the Assassin Poison Weapon ability.
Download Improved Invisibility Fix Improved Invisibility Fix resolves the bug of the complete omission of the bonus of 4 to Armour Class and Saving Throws that this spell provides. This will affect both enemies' and player's Improved Invisibility. It has also been made non-cumulative.
Download Illithid/Ularthid Heal MR Failure Fix Illithid/Ularthid Heal MR Failure Fix resolves the bug with the illithids' own healing spells failing due to their own Magic Resistance. Nice work, Beige Tangerine!
Download City-Of-Caverns Heal Party MR Failure Fix City-Of-Caverns Heal Party MR Failure Fix resolves the bug with the spell cast prior to battling the Ettin in the City-Of-Caverns failing due to character Magic Resistance. Another nice fix from Beige Tangerine!
Download Barkskin Armour Class Bonus Fix Barkskin Armour Class Bonus Fix resolves the bug with this priest spell's AC bonus not progressing as stated, but going up and down erroneously with advancing levels. It has also been made non-cumulative.
Download Protection From Acid Casting Time Fix Protection From Acid Casting Time Fix resolves the bug with the casting time of this spell being 5 instead of 6 units as it is supposed to be. Another nice fix from Beige Tangerine!
Download Imoen Thieving Skills Fix Updated Imoen's Thieving Skill Fix fixes Imoen getting shortchanged 25 Thieving Skill Points as she was originally planned as a Level 6 thief/Level 7 mage dual-class and these levels were incremented without upping her skills. I distributed 25 more points into some important skills for her. This update also resolves her THAC0 when she joins in Irenicus' dungeon being incorrectly 18 instead of 17.(Note: This will not change her thieving skills if she is already present in your party; it will take effect when a new game is started, or when she joins the party in Spellhold or at the Copper Coronet. Her THAC0 will be fixed at her next level-up.)
Download Half-Orc/Viconia Romance & Drow Item/Avatar Fix Half-Orc/Viconia Romance & Drow Item/Avatar Fix fixes three bugs in one file: male Half-Orcs were supposed to be able to romance Viconia, the exploit of kicking characters out in the Underdark and keeping their Drow Adamantine armour and weapons when they rejoin later, as well as the characters still having the Drow avatar for the remainder of the game, even if they left on their own. This update adds Mazzy to the list of characters that will find their way out of the Underdark with Adamantine items and Drow avatar intact.(Note: The romance fix was released previously. The version of this script that completely eliminates the romance racial checks is on the Tweaks & Cheats page; this version doesn't do that as it's a bugfix. The romance fix will not affect current savegames; a new game must be started for this fix to take effect.)
Download Helm Of Brilliance MR Failure Fix Helm Of Brilliance MR Failure Fix resolves the problem with the spells cast by this helmet on the wearer failing due to the wearer's Magic Resistance, though they are beneficial. Thanks, Beige Tangerine!
Download Ring Of Gaxx Portrait Icons Fix Ring Of Gaxx Portrait Icons Fix resolves the omission of this ring not removing the portrait icons for Disease and Poison, which was confusing players into thinking that its provided immunities weren't working properly.
Download Gauntlets Of Crushing Usability Fix Gauntlets Of Crushing Usability Fix corrects the usability for these gauntlets, as they were erroneously restricted from Druids and usable by Kensai and Wizard Slayers (though they really aren't useful to anyone but Monks.) Another nice fix from Beige Tangerine!
Download Inquisitor Hold Person Animation Fix Inquisitor Hold Person Animation Fix resolves the omission of Inquisitor Paladins being immune to Hold Person as a kit bonus, but still showing the "spinning circles" animation when Hold Person was resisted by their immunity instead of by a successful saving throw.
Download Yoshimo Keep-Alive Exploit Fix Yoshimo Keep-Alive Exploit Fix eliminates the exploit of keeping Yoshimo alive after Spellhold by leaving him in the Copper Coronet and then talking to him just after entering on return.
Rogue Saving Throw Table Fix Rogue Saving Throw Table Fix resolves the omission of Rogues (Thieves & Bards) still having the BG1 Level 20 Ruleset for their saves, which meant that they did not get the final level 21 decrease that they are entitled to, as they can reach to level 21 (and beyond) under the 2,950,000 experience point cap.
Haer'Dalis Rescue From Mekrath Fix Haer'Dalis Rescue From Mekrath Fix resolves a bug with Haer'Dalis' dialog where if Mekrath's quest was finished and the player then decided to fight and slay him afterwards, Haer'Dalis was unresponsive and the quest could not be continued nor could Haer'Dalis join the group.
Download Updated Captain Arat Dialog Fix Updated Captain Arat Dialog Fix updates Beige Tangerine's resolution to a bug with the D'Arnise captain's dialog that made him respond as though the player had opened the Keep drawbridge when this hadn't been done yet. My fix for the exploit of unlimited Flame Arrows from him has been fixed: he was giving out NO flame arrows previously. Oops! :^) He should give one quoit of them now (and you can pick his pocket for another one.)
Download Miscellaneous Area Type Flags Fixes Miscellaneous Area Type Flags Fixes resolves minor errors with incorrect area flags, such as dungeons being marked as non-dungeons or vice versa. This would have no effect on gameplay, but could lead to strange NPC dialog. This update also resolves the bug with the Tethir Forest cabin (Coran's?) being enterable by one player, but only exitable with all players, as Mazzy's home in Trademeet was.
Download Druid Messenger No Valid Replies Or Links Fix Druid Messenger No Valid Replies Or Links Fix prevents a rare occurrence of this bug when talking to this character who summons the player to the Druid Grove.
Download Adjatha The Drinker Heal MR Failure Fix Adjatha The Drinker Heal MR Failure Fix resolves the problem with this sword's effect of healing of one point of its wielder's damage per strike being subject to Magic Resistance failure.
Download Hallowed Redeemer Fix Hallowed Redeemer Fix also is courtesy of Beige Tangerine. It resolves the problem of Keldorn's Hallowed Redeemer +2 attracting the Cowled Wizards when it casts its 5 point "vengeance damage" spell unasked in the streets of Athkatla if he is injured. This update tightens up the restrictions of this weapon (which only Keldorn should be able to use) as F/M/T's and other characters were able to.
Download Corthala Family Armour Usability Fix Corthala Family Armour Usability Fix fixes the restrictions on Valygar's armour, which were letting a lot of other characters wear it. Another nice fix from Beige Tangerine! I updated this fix as Valygar's armour wasn't disabling mage spellcasting as all other armour does, for the few characters left who could still wear it.
Download Regis Amulet Usability Fix Regis Amulet Usability Fix resolves the bug of this amulet belonging to Drizzt's companion being wearable by Wizard Slayers, who may not wear magical amulets. Another nice fix from Beige Tangerine!
Viconia Initial Weapon Proficiencies Fix Viconia Initial Weapon Proficiencies Fix resolves the bug whereby Viconia is missing a weapon proficiency if she joins the party at levels 8, 9 or 11, and two proficiencies if she joins at level 13. This update fixes the VICONI9.CRE file, which, although it was fine in Shadows Of Amn, could not be read by editors such as Shadowkeeper and InfExp.
Download Staff Of The Woodlands Fix Staff Of The Woodlands Fix adds the +1 bonus to Saves other than Save Vs. Spells that Barkskin provides (confirmed with BioWare,) and resolves the bug with the equipped Armour Class provided by the Staff giving bonus of 3 rather than setting Base AC to 3 (Barkskin) as it was supposed to, adding to Beige Tangerine's fix that restricted Rangers from incorrectly being able to use this Druid-only item.
Download North Forest Skeleton Warrior Avatar Fix North Forest Skeleton Warrior Avatar Fix corrects the avatar of this enemy in the group of mercenaries who attack the player in the North Forest, as it was wearing the avatar of a normal (and much less tough) skeleton. Thanks again, Beige Tangerine!
Download Valygar Ranger Ally Unwarranted Attack Fix Valygar Ranger Ally Unwarranted Attack Fix adds the missing check to Valygar's friend's dialog that was causing him to attack even if the player was telling the truth when replying that they had not heard of Valygar.
Download Imnesvale Chicken Pickpocket Exploit Fix Imnesvale Chicken Pickpocket Exploit Fix eliminates the somewhat humourous exploit of picking the chicken's "pocket" (actually throat) for this item, thus not having to buy it from its owner (or kill the chicken in front of him.)
Download Stalkers Losing Backstab Ability Fix Stalkers Losing Backstab Ability Fix resolves the bug which would cause all non-protagonist Stalker rangers (most notably Valygar) to permanently lose their Backstab ability if they died and were raised by any method. Note: although this will not restore the Backstab of a Stalker in an existing game, it will prevent it from happening again, and the ReadMe contains detailed instructions on how to restore it.)
Download Arbane's Short Sword Fixes Arbane's Short Sword Fixes resolve the bugs of this shortsword's special ability having 0 charges when found (which makes it appear broken) and its immunities containing some leftover resources.
Download Ellie the Festhall Cook XP Exploit Fix Ellie the Festhall Cook XP Exploit Fix prevents speaking to her repeatedly after the "Potion Plot" has started for unlimited experience points.
Download Kuo-Toan Prince Pickpocket Exploit Fix Kuo-Toan Prince Pickpocket Exploit Fix prevents pickpocketing him for the blood quest item which then allows the player to finish the quest without doing anything else. Thanks again Beige Tangerine!
Download Thieves' Stronghold Flags & Resting Fix Thieves' Stronghold Flags & Resting Fix resolves three of the four Guild levels as being marked as outdoors, so the player could not rest on one (ironically, the one with the most beds,) outdoor encounters would occur there, and Call Lightning could be cast inside (if there was any reason to.) The resting flag is now set properly when the player has the stronghold.
Download Outdoor Encounter Areas Fix Updated Outdoor Encounter Areas Fix adds one more area to Beige Tangerine's fix that resolves several of the outdoor encounter areas being flagged as indoors, which prevents the druid spell Call Lightning from working.
Download Planar Sphere Assassins Not Appearing Fix Planar Sphere Assassins Not Appearing Fix prevents an uncommon glitch which caused the "ambush" in the Planar Sphere to not occur; the animation would play showing the assassins gating in, but they would never appear and Teos could not be spoken to afterwards.
Download Bard Spell Memorization Table Fix Bard Spell Memorization Table Fix resolves the bug of bards being capped for learning new spells at level 22, instead of 23, as bards can legitimately reach level 23 within the 2,950,000 experience point cap. One sixth-level spell should appear at level up from 22 to 23.
Download Valygar Missing Cleric Spells Fix Valygar Missing Cleric Spells Fix resolves the bug of Valygar not having his ranger's cleric spells (nor his Stalker mage spells) when he joins at any level.
Download Minsc Missing Cleric Spells Fix Minsc Missing Cleric Spells Fix resolves the bug of Minsc not having his ranger's cleric spells when he joins at any level.
Download Spellhold Statue XP Exploit Fix Spellhold Statue XP Exploit Fix prevents talking repeatedly to the large head bust in Spellhold's dungeon at quest end and receiving experience every time.
Download Dragon Offscreen AI Fix Improved Dragon Offscreen AI Fix is now even better thanks to KensaiRyu's fix for thief snares set near dragons being ignored, and Beige Tangerine's addition of preventing dragons from remaining passive if a cleric casts Magic Resistance on them; it also restores a little much-needed respect for dragons by preventing the exploits of using Cloudkill and other area-effect spells and summons offscreen to kill them. Keep in mind that dragonslaying is optional in all instances, so if you choose to fight one you should expect a difficult battle! You can always come back later if you're not ready for it. This update prevents the exploit of pickpocketing Adalon for her blood.
Download Ihtafeer Pickpocket Exploit Fix Ihtafeer Pickpocket Exploit Fix prevents pickpocketing Ihtafeer the Rakshasi for the quest item (her own head!) which then allows the player to finish the quest without doing anything else.
Download Updated Aran Linvail Chapter 7 Spellhold Return Fix Updated Aran Linvail Chapter 7 Spellhold Return Fix resolves an incorrect reputation check when asking for Aran's help fighting the vampires that augment's Beige Tangerine fix to Aran's dialog so that he doesn't send the player/party back to Brynnlaw (which leaves them stuck) if he is spoken to in Chapter 7.
Download Mazzy's House Party-Required Exit Fix Mazzy's House Party-Required Exit resolves the minor bug with Mazzy's house in Trademeet where one character could enter and then be stuck until the rest of the party entered and then left together.
Download Mazzy/Valygar Enemies When Charmed Fix Mazzy/Valygar Enemies When Charmed Fix prevents both Mazzy and Valygar from leaving the party and becoming enemies if one of them is Charmed or Dominated after Mazzy adopts Valygar as her "squire".
Download Improved Jaheira Romance/Harper Plot Updated Improved Jaheira Romance/Harper Plot is a very welcome update by Manveru to my original debugged Jaheira plotline (and Manveru has my eternal thanks for saving me from having to debug this thing again.) Several remaining bugs are corrected and I can call this my final update for this item.
Download Lady Delicia Cann Dialog Interruption Fix Lady Delcia Caan Dialog Interruption Fix changes Nalia's crotchety aunt Lady Delcia so that she now waits for a player to speak to her, as previously her aggressive dialog would interrupt her guard's, which could prevent the player from saving the game or resting afterwards.
Download Haer'Dalis Pickpocketing/Spells/Proficiencies Fixes Haer'Dalis Pickpocketing/Spells/Proficiencies Fixes resolve Haer'Dalis having no spells at all if he joins at level 15, his pickpocketing skill being far too low, and having an extra level 15 weapon proficiency.
Download Rings Of Air & Fire Control Fixes Rings Of Air & Fire Control Fixes restore the missing Save Vs. Spells (with a +3 bonus) that elementals are supposed to be allowed to avoid being charmed by these rings but were missing. Another nice fix from Beige Tangerine!
Download Mazzy Weapons Exploits Fixes Mazzy Weapons Exploits Fixes tighten up the restrictions on her weapons, which are only supposed to be usable by Halflings, but were allowing Half-Orcs and Tieflings access to them. Thanks again, Beige Tangerine!
Download Full Plate +2 Fix Full Plate +2 Fix removes the erroneous THAC0 penalty of 1 and Movement Rate penalty of 2 from this Limited Wish armor, as neither penalty is present in its description.
Download Lilarcor Confusion Immunity Fix Lilarcor Confusion Immunity Fix resolves the bug whereby a character who used Lilarcor would never show the "confusion" animation again. Another nice fix from Beige Tangerine!
Download Drow Item Usability Fixes Drow Item Usability Fixes correct nineteen usability exploits and a couple of other bugs in ten Drow Adamantine items. A nice set of fixes from Beige Tangerine!
Download Scimitars Fix Updated Scimitars Fix resolves the bug whereby Beast Masters could equip/use all scimitars, and corrects the Shazzellim scimitar's damage from 1d8+2 to 1d8+1, to match its description. Updated to fix an error in the included file set. Thanks for both of these to Beige Tangerine!
Download Edwin's Nether Scroll Quest Fixes Edwin's Nether Scroll Quest Fixes resolve four bugs with Edwin's Quest: choosing the second, equally valid dialog option after the scroll was found caused the quest to permanently stall, an erroneous saving throw would sometimes appear when Edwin partially deciphered the scroll, and Edwin's restoration to 'normalcy' mismatched three entries in his sound set and failed to restore his corrupted avatar animation.
Download Potion Of Freedom Fix Potion Of Freedom Fix fixes four errors with this potion: Its Free Action effect expired immediately, the portrait icon lasted only one-fifth the length of time the potion effects did (so it appeared to be expiring too soon,) it erroneously protected against Charm, and it didn't suppress Haste, though it is the equivalent of the Free Action spell which does (and the Ring Of Free Action as well.)
Download Chromatic Orb Fix Updated Chromatic Orb Fix fixes four errors with this spell: Level 10 & 12 Petrify and Slay abilities respectively bypassing Magic Resistance, level 7 Stun ability bypassing Magic Resistance and being undispellable, and level 1 Blind ability affecting the caster's, rather than the targets's, Armour Class. Now updated to do the same for both the Wizard and Avenger Druid versions of the spell. Nice work, Beige Tangerine!
Download Necromantic Spell HP Bonus Fix Necromantic Spell HP Bonus Fix corrects the bug that caused the Hit Point bonus given to the caster of some necromantic spells to be checked for and fail due to Magic Resistance. Nice work, Beige Tangerine!
Download Brine Potion Usability Fix Brine Potion Usability Fix disallows Wizard Slayers from using this item, as they are restricted from all potions. Another nice fix from Beige Tangerine!
Download Mordenkainen's Sword Amulet Fix Updated Mordenkainen's Sword Amulet Fix eliminates the erroneous Greenstone Amulet that the summoned sword drops if it dies and replaces it with an item that does what the Amulet was supposed to do but didn't (makes the sword immune to charm, horror, confusion and domination, and now updated to include immunity to Psionics.) Thanks again to Beige Tangerine!
Download Ring Of Free Action Fix Ring Of Free Action Fix resolves the bug of the Free Action effect of the ring persisting permanently (and invisibly) when the ring was removed. Thanks to Sze Erh Lee for pointing this bug out, and finding its cause and solution!
Download Improved Mace Of Disruption Fix Improved Mace Of Disruption Fix now correctly suppresses the "Levels Drained" message when the character wielding it is successfully protected from Level Drain, as it appeared that the protection wasn't working properly. (Note that it's the mace that's 'Improved', not the fix!)
Download Weapon Proficiencies Fix Once Again Updated Weapon Proficiencies Fix resolves the following errors in the class weapon proficiencies table: Fighter/Druids could only put one proficiency into Two-Handed and Two-Weapon, Fighter/Mage/Clerics and Ranger/Clerics could only put one proficiency into Two-Handed but three into Clubs, Ranger/Clerics could only put two proficiencies into Two-Weapon, Paladins could put three proficiencies into Two-Weapon, Kensai and Cavaliers were not being allowed Darts proficiencies though it was confirmed that they may use all thrown vs. launched ranged weapons, Monks were not being allowed to choose Katana proficiency though they can use Katanas, Swashbucklers were not being allowed Katana specialization though they may specialize in any melee weapon they can use (which are the weapons thieves can use) and Swashbucklers were being allowed specialization in Short Bows, Crossbows and Slings though they may only specialize in melee weapons. (Note: Characters overproficient in any reduced proficiency will not lose the specialization point by installing this fix; it only affects future proficiency point assignment.)
Download Paladin Harbinger Drives Away Allies Fix Paladin Harbinger Drives Away Allies Fix fixes Eric Van Straaten's Harbinger blade in the final battle with Bodhi so that it won't explode while he's using it, which would cause all the player's allies (paladins, assassins, Drizzt and friends) to flee as if attacked by the player.
Download Summoning Limit Exploit Fixes Summoning Limit Exploit Fixes resolve the oversight that allowed several summoned creatures to overstep the five-summon limit the game imposes. Nice work, Beige Tangerine!
Download Irenicus' Dungeon Area Type Fix Irenicus' Dungeon Area Type Fix corrects Irenicus' dungeon area flags, which did not have it set as a dungeon. Among other things, this would cause familiars to have rather strange dialog. Thanks again Beige Tangerine!
Download Tanner XP Exploit Fix Updated Tanner Experience Exploit Fix prevents receiving the quest experience multiple times by attacking the tanner and blocking his exit, or twice by exposing his crimes and then attacking him. Updated by Beige Tangerine to also eliminate a dialog experience exploit. Thanks Beige!
Download Anomen 'Big Head' Fix Anomen 'Big Head' Fix resolves the bug that caused Anomen's character sheet portrait to be twice as large as the window in both directions, meaning only the top-left corner was being shown. (Note: This will not take effect if he is or has been in your party in a current game.)
Download Soul Reaver THAC0 Drain Fix Soul Reaver THAC0 Drain Fix prevents the failure of this two-handed sword's special attack ability due to creature Magic Resistance, which is akin to other swords' abilities.
Download Dragon Offscreen AI Fix Improved Dragon Offscreen AI Fix is now even better thanks to KensaiRyu's fix for thief snares set near dragons being ignored, and Beige Tangerine's addition of preventing dragons from remaining passive if a cleric casts Magic Resistance on them; it also restores a little much-needed respect for dragons by preventing the exploits of using Cloudkill and other area-effect spells and summons offscreen to kill them. Keep in mind that dragonslaying is optional in all instances, so if you choose to fight one you should expect a difficult battle! You can always come back later if you're not ready for it.
Download Neb's Nasty Cutter Fix Neb's Nasty Cutter Fix allows this dagger usable by evil characters to remain useful as it is supposed to, rather than becoming unequippable when the few poison charges are exhausted.
Download Rierra Store Prices Fix Rierra Store Prices Fix eliminates the unintentional unlimited-gold exploit very similar to that of the Priestess Of Sekolah fix below, but with Reirra, the elven cleric in Suldanessellar.
Download Nalia's Initial Spell Slots Fix Nalia's Initial Spell Slots Fix fixes her having an extraneous empty spell slot if she joins at level 9, and overflowing memorized spells of a level 13 mage at level 12.
Download Staff Of The Woodlands Usability Fix Staff Of The Woodlands Usability Fix restricts Rangers from incorrectly being able to use this Druid-only item. Thanks again, Beige Tangerine!
Download Minor Quest Item Usability Fixes Minor Quest Item Weapon Usability Fixes change some minor, non-enchanted metal and two-handed quest weapons so that Beast Masters and Monks respectively are correctly restricted from using them. Thanks, Beige Tangerine!
Download Remove Magic Scroll Icon Fix Remove Magic Scroll Icon Fix resolves this scroll's icon making it easily confused with Dispel Magic. Thanks again, Beige Tangerine!
Download Sime Dialog Loop Fix Improved Sime Dialog Loop Fix is courtesy of Kevin Lynch, a better version of the fix for the script error which would cause Sime (the Shadow Thief who watches over Saemon Havarian on the voyage to Brynnlaw) to get locked into a "Saemon look nervous. See what he wants." dialog loop.
Download Tears Of Bhaal Selfish Test Bypass Exploit Fix Tears Of Bhaal Selfish Test Bypass Exploit Fix eliminates the oversight that allowed the protagonist to pass the Selfish test with the "good path" result without losing anything.
Download Tears Of Bhaal Paladin & Ranger Falling Fix Tears Of Bhaal Paladin & Ranger Falling Fix repairs the oversight of paladins and rangers who take the "evil path" in one or more of the Tears of Bhaal tests ending up as Neutral Evil in alignment but retaining all of their abilities, now that it has been confirmed with BioWare that they should immediately fall.
Download Aerie/Anomen Dialog Loop Fix Aerie/Anomen Dialog Loop Fix prevents the endless dialog with Aerie near resting time if Anomen fails his test for knighthood. Thanks to Beige Tangerine!
Download Aerie/Quayle Dialog Loop Fix Aerie/Quayle Dialog Loop Fix solves yet another Aerie dialog loop, this one occurring if she is called back to the circus for the Raelis Shai quest while in a romance with the protagonist. Thanks also to Beige Tangerine!
Download Suldanessellar Irenicus Fix Suldanessellar Irenicus Fix like the Spellhold Irenicus fix below, corrects his alignment (and race) for his appearance at the Tree Of Life, as otherwise spells and items that affected evil creatures were useless against him.
Download Monk Wizard Scroll Exploit Fix Monk Wizard Scroll Exploit Fix resolves the bug whereby Monks could equip and cast from the wizard scrolls for the spells Vocalize, Summon Nishruu, Remove Curse and Stone To Flesh.
Download Updated Amulet Of Power Fix Updated Amulet Of Power Fix appears to be problem-free: the previous fix was bringing out the issue with dual-classed kits' restrictions following them into the second class, even when the first class was inactive. Fixes the confirmed usabilities for this item, allowing Rangers and Paladins to use it, as all spellcasters are entitled to use it, and disallowing Monks and Barbarians from it.
Download Outdoor Encounter Areas Fix Outdoor Encounter Areas Fix resolves several of the outdoor encounter areas from being flagged as indoors, which prevents the druid spell Call Lightning from working. Thanks again Beige Tangerine!
Download Gauntlets Of Ogre Power Fix Gauntlets Of Ogre Power Fix finally allows Bards to wear this item, now that its usability has been confirmed with BioWare.
Download Berserker Enrage Stun Immunity Fix Berserker Enrage Stun Immunity Fix restores the missing Stun immunity that Enrage is supposed to provide, but that was missing.
Download Minsc's Enrage Stun Immunity Fix Minsc's Enrage Stun Immunity Fix as above, restores the missing Stun immunity that Minsc's variant of the Enrage ability was supposed to provide, but that was confirmed as also missing.
Download Solamnic Knight Return Exploit Fix Solamnic Knight Return Exploit Fix prevents repeatedly speaking to Khollynnus Paac, the mage who sends the Solamnic Knights home, for unlimited experience and Golden Girdles of slashing resistance. Thanks again Beige Tangerine!
Download Disappearing Figurines Fix Disappearing Figurines Fix resolves the oversight that caused the Golden Lion, Jade Hound, Black Spider and Moon Dog figurines to disappear if the character who used the figurine to summon them was dead when the summoning duration expired. Thanks to Beige Tangerine for the first three of these fixes!
Download Mazzy's Level 9 & 12 Proficiencies Fix Mazzy's Level 9 & 12 Proficiencies Fix removes one excess proficiency point from Mazzy's profile if she joins at level 9 or 12. (Note: this will not take effect if she has already joined your party in a current game.)
Download Enslaved Genie Pickpocket Exploit & Journal Fix Enslaved Genie Pickpocket Exploit & Journal Fix eliminates the exploit of pickpocketing the Abyssal genie for a Tear Of Bhaal, thereby keeping Blackrazor without repercussions, and also fixes a journal entry regarding this that appears at the wrong time.
Download Paladin Harp Exploit Fix Paladin Harp Exploit Fix removes the exploit of paladins being able to equip and use Methild's Harp and the Harp Of Discord.
Download Trapped In Twisted Rune Lair Fix Trapped In Twisted Rune Lair Fix prevents the player/party from becoming stuck in the Twisted Rune Lair if Shangalar is killed before gating his allies in. Nice work Beige Tangerine!
Download Sverfneblin Patrol Leader Helmet Exploit Fix Updated Sverfneblin Patrol Leader Helmet Exploit Fix updates the correction the omission that allowed classes restricted from helmets (mages, thieves, bards, monks, kensai and thief/mages) to wear this particular helmet. Thanks to Beige Tangerine for the updates!
Download Dwarven Thrower Fix Updated Dwarven Thrower Fix adds to the previous fix; it now prevents the exploit of Tieflings (ie Haer'Dalis) and Half-Orcs using it, and resolves two other minor issues with it: its melee damage is described as 2d4+3, but was actually 2d4+2, and its thrown and melee icons are indistinguishably the same. (Note: The version of the hammer that fixes these errors and also changes its thrown damage to blunt from piercing is on the main page; this file doesn't change the thrown damage to blunt.) Thanks to Beige Tangerine for the usability fix!
Download Holy Smite Permanent Blindness Fix Holy Smite Permanent Blindness Fix fixes the level 6 and 7 duration resources, which would cause permanent blindness in all evil-aligned affected creatures (including evil-aligned party members.) Another nice fix from Beige Tangerine!
Download Fixed Wands Mage Wands Fix eliminates the exploit of Monks being able to use all the mage/bard-only wands, updating the previous fix that resolves the severely game-unbalancing bug with the Wand Of Cloudkill's bypassing of the Magic Resistance check, enabling difficult Magic-Resistant enemies to be killed easily with it. Thanks to Beige Tangerine for all the usability fixes!
Download Avenger Shadow Dragon Scale Armour Fix Avenger Shadow Dragon Scale Armour Fix allows Avenger druids to wear this natural-material non-metallic armour as they are supposed to. Thanks again Beige Tangerine!
Download Heartseeker THAC0 Bonus Exploit Fix Heartseeker THAC0 Bonus Exploit Fix fixes the daily THAC0-improving ability of this bow so it now only affects missile rather than all weapons for its duration. Thanks again Beige Tangerine!
Download Acid Arrow Enchantment Fix Acid Arrow Enchantment Fix changes the Acid Arrow's enchantment to +1 to match its THAC0 bonus. Another nice fix from Beige Tangerine!
Download Flasher Master Bruiser Mate Enchantment Fix Flasher Master Bruiser Mate Enchantment Fix as above, changes the enchantment of this "bolt" to +1 to match its THAC0 bonus. (Both oversights were confirmed.)
Download Familiar Level Drain Spell Loss Fix Familiar Level Drain Spell Loss Fix resolves the problem where level-drained familiars could never cast spells again due to their "spellbooks" being inaccessible, and also that the player was unable to determine if a familiar was level drained, as can be done if they are injured.
Download Pseudodragon Familiar Magic Resistance Fix Pseudodragon Familiar Magic Resistance Fix restores the missing 50% Magic Resistance to this familiar as per its description (as all of the familiars have some resistance to all or some types of magic.)
Download Cat Familiar No-Attacks Fix Cat Familiar No-Attacks Fix resolves the problem with the cat familiar's resources causing it to have no attacks whatsoever, instead of an extra attack per round.
Download Quasit Familiar Blur & Attack Fix Quasit Familiar Blur Ability & Attack Fix fixes the broken Blur ability of Quasit familiars, and removes the extraneous "poison" message from their melee attacks, as the actual resource was removed from the game before release. (As noted above, if you already have a Quasit familiar and install this, do not let the current familiar die or you will be unable to summon another one until you start another game.) The fix will also not take effect if Find Familiar has already been cast.
Download Imp Familiar Attack Fix Imp Familiar Attack Fix removes the extraneous "poison" message from their melee attacks, as above, as the actual resource was removed from the game before release.
Download Staff Of The Magi Fix Staff Of The Magi Fix restores the missing Protection From Evil that has caused many a mage to be attacked by their own gated demons...you should be safe now. Though the colourglow was still there, the actual ability was not.
Download Darts Fix Darts Fix corrects three problems with the BG2 darts: the three attacks per round darts are supposed to provide weren't occurring, the normal dart was being given a (confirmed) erroneous Strength bonus, and the Asps' Nest dart, though it was created by "powerful magic" and has a THAC0 and damage bonus of 1, was not enchanted.
Download Sling Of Everard Fix Sling Of Everard Fix removes the (confirmed erroneous) Strength bonus to damage this sling provided, as only the Sling Of Seeking is supposed to do this, and also corrects a missing point of base damage (1D4+3 rather than 1D4+2.) Thanks again to Beige Tangerine!
Download Fixed Boots Of Speed Improved Boots Of Speed Fix resolves the three known issues with the Boots Of Speed (haste doesn't increase attacks, doubled initiative round leaves chars. wasting their attack windows, and invisible chars. become visible before attacking due to the doubled initiative round.) Now Beige Tangerine has made them even better by correcting the movement rate increases for Monks and Barbarians so that they receive the same benefits!
Download Ring Of Earth Control Fix Ring Of Earth Control Fix removes the erroneous +1 bonus to Saving Throws, now that it has been confirmed as unintentional.
Download Staff Of Curing Fix Improved Staff Of Curing Fix updates the previous that resolves the problem of the Cure ability of this item failing being subject to Magic Resistance check though it is the equivalent of the priest spell, and therefore failing on a character with significant Magic Resistance. Now that it has been confirmed as unintentional, the erroneous +2 bonus to Saving Throws has been eliminated, and the Staff made into +1 enchantment to match the THACO and damage bonus, and its being magical in nature.
Viconia Initial Weapon Proficiencies Fix Viconia Initial Weapon Proficiencies Fix resolves the bug whereby Viconia is missing a weapon proficiency if she joins the party at levels 8, 9 or 11, and two proficiencies if she joins at level 13.
Download Blade Offensive Spin Ability Fix Blade Offensive Spin Ability Fix adds the missing THAC0 bonus of 2 that's missing from this bard kit's special ability, and the bonus is also now visible in the character sheet when the ability is used.
Download Mordenkainen's Sword Invisibility Exploit Fix Mordenkainen's Sword Invisibility Exploit Fix eliminates the exploit of being able to remain invisible while casting this spell, which should not be the case with conjuration/summoning spells that create allies for offensive combat.
Download Simulacrum Invisibility Exploit Fix Simulacrum Invisibility Exploit Fix as above, breaks invisibility when this spell is cast as summoning/conjuration spells are supposed to.
Download Keldorn's Firecam Full Plate Fix Keldorn's Firecam Full Plate Fix further tightens the restrictions on this armour that only Keldorn is supposed to be able to wear, as plenty of other characters were able to.
Download Carsomyr Fix Carsomyr Fix corrects its damage from 1d10+5 to 1d12+5, to match its description.
Download Druid Multi/Dual-Class Stronghold Fix Druid Multi/Dual-Class Stronghold Fix corrects the oversight that prevented dual-classed or multi-classed Fighter/Druids from being able to obtain the Druid Grove stronghold. Excellent work by Beige Tangerine!
Download Edwin's Initial Spell Slots Fix Edwin's Initial Spell Slots Fix resolves Edwin having one too many spells in all levels (as if he didn't have enough already) when he joins, meaning that he loses spell memorization slots on his next level-up.
Download Ring Of Gaxx Pickpocket Exploit Fix Ring Of Gaxx Pickpocket Exploit Fix eliminates the exploit of picking Kangaxx's pocket one (or more) times when he appears from the sarcophagus, then getting another Ring Of Gaxx when his Demi-Lich form is slain. Nice work Beige Tangerine!
Download Beholder Death Ray Spell Fix Beholder Death Ray Spell Fix resolves the problem that this innate spell had with sneaking through a scroll of Protection From Magic's defenses and ignoring character Magic Resistance.
Download Dragonslayer Fix Dragonslayer Fix adds the missing portrait that lets the player know the regeneration ability of this longsword is working properly. Thanks again Beige Tangerine!
Download Potion Of Storm Giant Strength Fix Potion Of Storm Giant Strength Fix prevents the failure of this potion due to a character's Magic Resistance.
Download Multiple Strongholds Exploit Fix Multiple Strongholds Exploit Fix adds the missing checks to Nalia D'Arnise and Lavok Corthala's dialogs to prevent the player from obtaining the D'Arnise Hold keep or Planar Sphere in certain situations as strongholds if they already have a stronghold. Another nice fix from Beige Tangerine!
Download Priestess Of Sekolah Store Prices Fix Priestess Of Sekolah Store Prices Fix corrects the buying prices of this store, eliminating the unlimited-gold exploit of being able to repeatedly sell expensive items for more than they were then bought back for, if the character's reputation and charisma were high enough.
Download Spellhold Irenicus Fix Spellhold Irenicus Fix resolves the oversight of being able to kill Irenicus at Spellhold (as himself or the co-ordinator) with instant-death spells such as Disintegrate (which would prevent the game being finished if this was done to his co-ordinator guise,) and also corrects his alignment and race.
Download Drow Longsword Protagonist Check Fix Drow Longsword Protagonist Check Fix repairs the Underdark Exit check which allowed Drow Adamantine Longswords to slip through if they were being held by the protagonist.
Download Habib's 'Mighty Scimitar' Fix Habib's 'Mighty Scimitar' Fix removes the erroneous ability of his thrown scimitars to become permanently stuck in characters' quick-weapon slots.
Download Cursed Scroll Of Ailment Fix Cursed Scroll Of Ailment Fix prevents the exploit/oversight of being able to use this cursed scroll as an offensive weapon, contrary to AD&D guidelines on the way cursed scrolls work. Thanks again, Beige Tangerine!
Download Raissa XP Exploit Fix Raissa Experience Exploit Fix prevents talking to Raissa multiple times after restoring her and receiving the quest experience every time.
Download Valygar's Corthala Family Blade Backstab & AC Bonus Fix Valygar's Corthala Family Blade Backstab & AC Bonus Fix adds the missing 2 AC bonus vs. Slashing weapons that is supposed to be there as per the description, updating the previous fix for this item that resolves the problem of Valygar not being able to backstab with it. Thanks to Beige Tangerine for the backstab fix!
Download Paladin Resting In Stronghold Fix Paladin Resting In Stronghold Fix finally allows a paladin member of the Order to use their very own room for resting in (or anywhere else in the Order) as long as membership is maintained. The Prelate requests that you not crash in the lobby or his office, though. :^)
Download Paladin Tyrianna Assassin Quest Fix Paladin Tyrianna Assassin Quest Fix fixes three bugs with the paladin's stronghold quest: the girl being protected going hostile, and two opportunities to break the stronghold quest irreparably by going upstairs at the wrong times.
Download Spellhold Asylum Entry & Sequence Looping Fix Spellhold Asylum Entry & Sequence Looping Fix updates the previous fix that resolves the script error which would cause the protagonist to be stuck between the locked lobby of Spellhold and the petrification trap of the bridge to the asylum, with the game unfinishable, if both the Pirate Lord Desharik was spoken to and the Wardstone of Perth The Adept obtained to allow entry. It now also prevents the error where Irenicus appears after the player has completed the "Bodhi's gauntlet" dungeons and sticks him/her right back in the jar again.
Download Alignment By Class Table Fix Alignment By Class Table Fix resolves the error of multi-class thieves not being allowed to choose any Lawful alignments, rather than just being restricted from Lawful Good.
Download Arkanis Gath Spawns Indefinitely & When Working For Bodhi Fix Arkanis Gath Spawns Indefinitely & When Working For Bodhi Fix updates the previous fix of Gath spawning unlimited times if the protagonist casts Protection From Magical Weapons, and also prevents him from appearing if the player decides to work for Bodhi instead.
Download Welther Spawning When Lady Elgea Freed Fix Welther Spawning When Lady Elgea Freed Fix really works this time! (Including the right file helps.) It prevents the nobleman Welther from continuously reappearing and disappearing in front of the Copper Coronet if Lady Elgea is freed by Mazzy or Keldorn, or on the second dialog with her.
Download Solaufein Phaere Rescue Fix Solaufein Phaere Rescue Fix prevents accidentally running off the map while Solaufein casts, which breaks the Ust Natha plotline and quests.
Download Ust Natha Trapped Player & Beholder Quest Ust Natha Trapped Player & Beholder Quest Fix resolves two bugs: first, the severe bug of being completely trapped in the area after the Matron Mother Ardulace seals it prior to the ritual if anything causes the area to go hostile, and second: the bug of Phaere and Solaufein being unresponsive if either are talked to twice after Phaere assigns the quest to kill the Beholder in Ust Natha. Thanks to Beige Tangerine for the Beholder Quest component of this bugfix!
Download Enchanted Weapon Spell Fix Enchanted Weapon Spell Fix makes this useful spell a little less confusing by now prompting for the weapon type to create immediately on casting, rather than after the animation. Previously, if the wizard was told to do something right after casting, the spell would be counted as failed so it appeared to not be working.
Download Restored Slave Lord & Twisted Rune Quest Fix Restored Slave Lord & Twisted Rune Quest Fix enables severed dialog threads and adds an improvised item to restore the severed links of the Twisted Rune quest, which was intended for the game but appears to have been forgotten about as all its components are still present. Until this point it's been enigmatic encounters and locations with no clues that they are interconnected. (Note: This fix includes the previously separate Disappearing Rogue Stone Autosave fix.)
Download Blackrazor Fix Blackrazor Fix adds the portrait icons and Battletext responses when the +3 longsword Blackrazor's special abilities trigger, as otherwise it appears to not be working properly. Nice job Beige Tangerine!
Download Inaccessible Bodhi Lair Fix Inaccessible Bodhi Lair Fix resolves the bug whereby after accepting Bodhi's first assignment after agreeing to work for her, the door to her underground lair is unpickably locked and therefore the game cannot be finished.
Download Spellhold Return Invisibilty Fix Spellhold Return Invisiblity Fix allows Irenicus, and then Bodhi, to speak to the protagonist if they happen to be invisible on their return to the Spellhold after the "dream sequence" in "Candlekeep" as otherwise the game halts with the protagonist stuck in the lab jar, and the whole sequence has to be done over again.
Download Unseeing Eye Not Appearing Fix Unseeing Eye Not Appearing Fix resolves the bug where the Unseeing Eye Beholder would not appear if the Rift Device was put together, the game saved, then the save reloaded.
Download Keldorn Level 9 Weapon Proficiencies Fix Keldorn's Level 9 Weapon Proficiencies Fix gives back to Keldorn his two Long Swords proficiency points which somehow got removed if he happens to join the party at level 9. (Note: This will not restore his Long Swords proficiencies if he is already present in your party; it will take effect when he joins the party in the Temple sewers, at the Order or his home.)
Download Detect Evil Fix Detect Evil Fix resolves the problem of the wizard/priest spell and special ability failing due to creature Magic Resistance. (Note: Read the ReadMe to know how to interpret the results of the fixed spell/ability properly.)
Download Tombelthen's Journal Fix Tombelthen's Journal Fix finally removes Tombelthen's Journal (2nd half) detailing the ranger-only cache from the Ruined Temple of Amaunator if the protagonist isn't (and can't become) a ranger. Another great fix from Beige Tangerine!
Download Unstakable Vampire Fix Unstakable Vampire Fix resolves the problem where, when the protagonist is clearing the vampires out of the cemetery for the Shadow Thieves, not all of their coffins would become stakable and therefore Bodhi would not appear, and the game could not be finished.
Download Slave Leader Reputation Exploit Fix Slave Leader Reputation Exploit Fix comes to you courtesy of Beige Tangerine, and eliminates the exploit of repeatedly speaking to the Slave Leader after clearing the Illithid lair and freeing the slaves for reputation and experience.
Download Protection Scrolls Fix Protection Scrolls Fix resolves the problem where Scrolls of Protection from Acid, Cold, Electricity, Fire, Petrification, Poison, and Undead (but not Magic) were subject to the Magic Resistance check even though they are beneficial, and would fail when applied to characters with some Magic Resistance.
Download Mace Of Disruption Fix Mace Of Disruption Fix adds the -4 penalty to the Save Vs. Death when undead creatures are struck with it that is supposed to be there as per the description, but isn't. (The Improved Mace of Disruption +2 has the correct save penalty.)
Download Item Heal Exploit Fix Item Heal Exploit Fix is for those who want to play fair and not cheat...it changes the Sensate Amulet and Spear Of Kuldahar +3 items (which give bonus hit points when equipped) to eliminate the exploit of healing a character by repeatedly re-equipping the items. You still get the bonus hit points; only the cheat has been eliminated.
Download Fixed Azuredge Axe Azuredge Axe Fix resolves five problems with this +3 throwing/melee axe: its special undead-instant-death ability doesn't work on most undead contrary to its description, for the few types it works on their Save Vs. Death doesn't have a -4 penalty as it's supposed to, there is no 4 points of extra damage vs. undead as there should be, it does far too much damage vs. non-undead when thrown, and its thrown/melee ability icons are the same.
Download Nishruu-Proof Items Nishruu-Proof Items Fix (MD5 hash E29E4324E5CE02A1FB3BE15D48D16C4E) resolves the "Nishruu Bug" where items such as artifact weapon pieces, cloaks, robes, belts, bracers, etc. disappear. This was only partially fixed (mages' familiars only) with the patch. Nishruus (and their big brothers the Hakeashars) are only supposed to cause charged items like wands to disappear, but due to item misdefinition they will eat these other items right out of your inventory, even if they are being worn. I've fixed all 96 non-charged items that are vulnerable to this. Self-installing. 99KB. (The ReadMe file will list all files installed and their item names. As none of these items were changed by the patch, if their files are already present in your Override folder they will be overwritten when this package is installed.)
