  • Sorry, I did not read everything here (just quickly). I see EEUITweaks are being mentioned. As I performed few EET new installs (on another SSD) in last days, for some testing, I notices EEUITweaks caused problem every time. Except that, I had zer…
  • Full work in progress. From tomorrow, I will be absent for 2-3 days, after that I will immidiately resume. Inspected every mod added spell I was aware of, and patched Ameralis script to respond to it in intended way. Now I'm working anyway on Xei W…
  • So, SoD do not bring much. Ok, already I did play SoD few times, but never full BG2 in EET (just small part). So, for BG2 in EET, with my mod selection (add on that fact that I also have 90% of Quest Mods selected), can I expect notably more XP com…
  • So, 500000-530000. And you will get some more from Drizzt Saga, there is indeed some XP to get. This input is important for me because I do not have full EET expirience and I play triple class, so I try to create some idea how I can progress during …
  • I did read your post in your playthrough few days ago, but I did not comment because I don't know do you wish others to post there. Glad you are gaming. So, soon you are in SoD. Drizzt Saga is really so nice. But last for short time. Not having Im…
  • I did write recently, in my playthrough thread, a lot about interactions with NPCs, and between them. But keep in mind I just did part of BG1, so I can't tell you more except that. However, so far there was nice and big interactions, especially San…
  • We did it. It had take me number of reloads. He wreched us sometimes, but I figured out tactic after few times. Tanarri was also problem two times with Death Gaze (we have no potions against it). Wailing Death (sirine animation in Drizzt Saga) is da…
  • Now I'm in full work on Xei Win Toh recomposing script. But I get aware of some additional thing I have to do, so I will explain. Btw., I also patched Ameralis (and all other will be in same way when I get to work on them) to react to various other…
  • So he stop being joinable NPC from exact SoA end/ToB beginning, or somewhere before during SoA?
  • Roxanne, you know I did not progress much in BG2 in EET. But I would like to know more about Minsc and Sandrah, as I'm using them both and I planned them for full game. This is first time I hear that you can't have Minsc in ToB in case you follow Sa…
  • All done, now lets do Melfs Acid Arrow and get over with it. I did not include Spell Trap, because... you really should not have it at this stage of game. I have no idea if some specific spell protection offer immunity exactly to Melfs Acid Arrow (e…
  • Ok, now I taken to improve his script. It is not a big deal. This is not nearly detailed work, but it is indeed big improvement compared to default version. So looking at first picture, he will not target enemies who are immune to Remove Magic. He…
  • Fight continue in nice Drizzt Saga (mod really have some good feeling..). We saved child fighting number of Frost Giants. After that I decided to clear this area before heading for Mountains of the Dead. Always protect yourself when you fight Harpi…
  • 00-25-40-55-65-75-80-85-90-95, are checks up to how much damage (slashing) resistance enemy can have. 95 is actually check up to 100, allowing attack on 99% and no more. But it is calculated and tested at 95 (hardly player are going to have that muc…
  • Little more work this evening and I'm going to end about 18 hours of work (except little pauses and some forum posting). But results are equal to time spent. Keep on, and soon we will have 2 creatures full finished (except parts of script for some …
  • So, modded BG2 offers that, cool. And belive me, how many mods I have installed, we do not need to worry than Sometimes I put even more than 12 hours a day at WK encounter. I never allow myself to be lazy and not do or apply some idea, just beca…
  • You are right. But that is how it is. Game "jumped" to another level, at least from my choices of mods/components. And it fits me, of course, it would be even better if stronger encounters are more present around (I improve some of them in my instal…
  • Endarire said: How compatible is this quest with Spell Revisions since SR might change things for teleport field? Compatibile regarding spell itself in game generally, or regarding this quest? About this quest consider my answer and …
  • Really hard to tell and answer, from my perspective. First, as I get habit from any other game - what I get by legal way (I fought for it, be it money or demon fight) I consider that as something that belongs to me. You all know I like challenge. …
  • As Roxanne said, another one is simply possible to get at Northern Citadel (NTotSC). For first one, I noticed now (now I have ~SEATOWER/SETUP-SEATOWER.TP2~ #0 #2 // Ghost Knights at Ulcaster: V0.8 installed), after giving Ancient armor to Ghosts in…
  • Tested. Ranged weapons, whatever they be, while they are equipped as real weapon, their bonus will go into THAC0BONUSRIGHT (stats.ids). Never into LEFT. I was not so familiar with ranged weapons, because as player I almost never use it. This fact …
  • Ok, we head back and meet Robed Figure, and he teleported us to Mountains of the Dead. Same moment when you enter that area, you can pick head from dragon (need to forge armor). We cleared skeleton warriors and enter cave. There we killed some vamp…
  • Got him! From first try after last post. Our Lich failed a Save and died. I almost feel like cheating for using Mace of Disruption. But I'm sure we would got him this time for sure anyway, because I prepared Isra way better now, and by giving mace t…
  • I fully agree. It is better this way. About him, we killed him from first try, but.. just as Aec'Letec, had to move some members away from him, heal and restore buffs if possible. Marilith seemed harder to me, but we also killed her from first try. …
  • Into the game. I corrected Aec'Letec so he uses very well his Death Gaze. I improved him by good amount, almost doubling his HP, giving him 40% damage resistance (have 0% by default), solid regeneration, better Thac0, permanent Haste (and even small…
  • Right this moment I completed full testings for Flame Strike, because I just completed full blocks (there is only one offensive spell left to complete on this creature). I'm glad everything continue to work and progress without any problems. It too…
  • Taken Drizzt into party, and equipped him. With all equipment, including Wvyern head helm (+25 magic resistance), he get more than 100% MR, 100% fire resistance, and crazy good AC. Armor which we bought long before at FAI area from new dwarf merchan…
  • I know about Afaaq, but did not play it directly. Thank you. We made some progress this night. So, we killed leader of ogre hordes. He drops Bala's Leather armor, solid one. 30% magic resistance, and 30% magic damage resistance (remember, we will …
  • No problem, any content or encounter is welcome. Maybe she will be with us at SoD, as we will lose there some of current NPCs, and this time I will try to be always at 6 party for more fair XP distribution. We clear Firewine dungeon (and all borin…
  • All of these you mention are already inspected. Except Firewine dungeon. Exactly now I'm in Firewine dungeon, explored it just partially, so we will see. I intend to complete it (Firewine quest, we take quest at village) and than fight Ogres and O…
  • Understand. FMC is super strong and as you know I'm playing now as FMC. Have only 15 strenght (actually 18, because of Wvyern head helm, and Girdle of Bravery). DUHM boost you, and more you level up, more boost you get. Once you get Righteous Magic…
  • @LichDiet I did check, I have Alternatives installed in my game, good. In past I sided with ST, but mostly for reason my NPCs did not agree. Although we are enemies during BG2, I really do not hate Irenicus or Bodhi (it is opposite). If I had to …
  • Oh seems nice. Who is second NPC (90hp lady) ? So you can destroy both Shadows Thiefs and vamps? I hope I also have that installed (have no idea which exactly mod provides it). If possible I will clean them both. Berserker/Mage must be powerful. …
  • As Starcraft and Quake player, I'm super aware of speed runs, but I personally did not ever try it. For that specific challenge I belive there is more suited players for that than me, it simply never attract me. But that is complete different games …
  • LichDiet said: Hah, I'm a XP hoarder.  Every point counts! But, with XP caps and mega mods, it may be necessary, so that you don't max out in chapter 2.  I'm just against them personally.  I'd rather raise the cap than lower the XP.  I've never…
  • That seems ok. From my expirience up to now, 50% seems just fine for heavily modded EET. You still get more XP compared to vanilla without problem, if you aim to complete everything, but that is fair, because overall difficulty is increased and you …
  • LichDiet said: Experience Point Reduction? (shudder) You did not know for that?
  • To find some compromise, maybe best scenario would be to finish DS after Sandrah quest (which starts with collecting of pieces of cloth). Which XP reduction you use?
  • This can be if you are using extreme XP reduction (you before told me so). Which reduction you use in your last plays? I was always interested to complete and involve in quests. For interaction of party and others, now in this play I pay way more a…
  • Dragonlich said: Damn! I have now started everything. After starting the BG1 SoD and BG2 games the system is moving forward .. But I wonder, why can't I use the various MODs that I have already downloaded and that the system tells me it has see…
  • As I'm polishing everything regarding spells now for Ameralis, I set Unholy strike to be ineffective against three different kind of protections. As it bypass everything (any spell protection), and bypass magic resistance, it is kind of "curse" you…
  • Yes, game goes well for me. It is nice with all of these mods. Game install (mods selection) is very good, but it can be even better (maybe few things to add and change some components) because when I made install I did it for modding purpose, later…
  • Dragonlich said: Ok, Now I can do my selection "EET_Explore the EET World.ini" add some mod and remove some other.. At the end this all I can see after start the installation is this So, after you set mods selection (if I understand …
  • Use Install Tool (start it, select language, choose Baldurs Gate II:EE / Enhanced Edition Trilogy), go to Choose Mods and Components. After that, on top left (above mods list) you will find Options. Go for Import selection from file. Than browse and…
  • Good you solved it. But you lose antivirus (usually they are useless anyway). But you can use anyway method Roxanne proposed to you (to place it at some locations outside of your protected user account), maybe antivirus won't check it/or take action…
  • Dragonlich said: Can I post here the list of the mod that i want to install? I don't know forum rules regarding that. To be 100% sure we are not breaking any, better wait for Roxanne to answer that. However, I see no problem to send…
  • She is almost done. But I won't rush for anything. Seems like she is performing greatly and just as I imagined, without any error or weird behaviour ever. Still, I have some things in mind I want to implement and polish. Out of curiosity, I spawned…
  • So we wrecked Baeloth in the end, and everything before he had release on us. After we leave Black Pits, some infighting occured down there, and messages from fighting were displayed while we were at that part of WaterDeep. We cleared also another …
  • Roxanne said: Ammanda said: Sorry for offtopic, but as you mention Black Pits from WaterDeep, how I can access it? I did enter some area where dwarf is, but he just repeat same dialogue without any option for me. As I will be moving i…
  • I can also help you with compilation. But lets first do basic steps and be sure you are doing all properly. So you are using Beamdog version, good, with them I'm most familiar. Because of problems occured, and fact that you still do not have funct…
  • Sorry, I'm doing slow progress, as I'm working in paralled on my encounters and scripts (which have way higher priority). In game is not much progress, but there is some, and I can point to some interesting encounters. First picture is Upper Chion…
  • Not reciving XP or items can works little against motivation, but you are 100% right, it would probably destroy balance at that stage of game. In heavy modded EET you anyway get more XP from many mods, etc. But as challenge/tactical player also, be…
  • If running as administrator do not help, try to put some search into things like this :  https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=SVokTLhBmiA Or google Windows script host error. Seems like error message is almost same in your case and on youtube example.…
  • - About Finch, I remember when I did play before, yes she just did copy book, we had many attacks during BG1, but later I was able to find their island (Imoen used treasure for house in Beregost), and soon pirate leader appeared, I killed him. I thi…
  • Ok, this is now one of moments I described at beginning of my by and this thread. Finally we are there. And it is nice We explored around, bought some spells and books for stats increase. We are given "Book for Finch" also (later about this). …
  • Ok. So I can visit WD even without having all three pieces. We will do it. You didn't tell me - for Diary of a Rasheman Scout, is that item important for anything? It did trigger some dialogue with Sandrah. And where exactly I start Vault quest in…
  • This is what I have in Weidu for "vault" ~VAULTEET/SETUP-VAULTEET.TP2~ #0 #0 // The Vault (Ikki's rework for EET compatibility): v8.0 ~VAULTEET/SETUP-VAULTEET.TP2~ #0 #1 // The Vault's item upgrades - Compatibility with Item Revisions. Recommende…
  • I understand your point fully. I'm aware how Continue() works. Probably he used already modded game as you say. Always use 100% fresh installs. I can write him fully detailed instruction how to get a install and game he wish, but first I need to c…
  • Janbaru said: That's not a big deal to re-do the clean install. Thanks for the info. Appreciate. As I know, and always did, was to do mod selection before EET installation start. You choose mods (and you get warning which mods are in c…
  • Did you installed THE HORDE (it is under Tactical Encounters) mod? I did not ever included it in my installs, but decrption says it doubles enemies in game. Although creatures on your pictures are not enemies, I would have some suspicious towards th…
  • Some little more progress. In Xvart village, now not hostile anymore, we killed guy at left side and collected Brage's sword, and evidence. We bring evidence in Nashkel, there was trial for him, she is free now but released from military duty. I di…
  • Wreck them! Here is our battle report. Seem like this Xvarts are really improved, they are stronger than before. Xvart Protectors even need two hits to die. Their Shamans or whatever they are cast few nasty spells (Hold are worst). They also cast D…
  • I removed her from party, after that speak with Minsc and they agree that only Minsc remain in party. After that I told her to go to FAI and wait there. Just to check everything is right I traveled to FAI and she is there (at place where you meet Kh…
  • Done a tone of work. Implemented also this check is ally creature actually disabled, dead, specific spell depleted, on all spells. This is also one step forward smarter AI. Performed big testing and error inspecting. Found only one and corrected i…
  • Yes indeed, their timers run out so when I go back to game after one hour, dialogues are ready Dynaheir had one, and now watch, Isra starting with Imoen, I have feeling I will laught after this, but we will see   About kills and damage we had sp…
  • Of course I know. In my gameplay there is no even 10% damage which mages deal (we used only Flame Arrows and Melfs Acid Arrow for trolls, there Ayla and Imoen scored some but it is not big number). Our style, for now, is to use magic for boosting an…
  • Seem most logical. And when they get neutral, it can be problematic in just specific scenario. Problem is, they are now just spawned in big number once, but one after another, whole map end overwhelmed by them. So I would not suggest doing missing …
  • I know that from past but tnx for info. I know she is not happy but for sake of kill numbers (which boost her) we need it. When we get to big Ogre/Ogre-Mage fight, etc., power is needed. Extra area was in cave, with some Druids inside (cast Insect…
  • Good to know, tnx. Ok, we already get item needed for Sandrah from her. As I'm not gaming now, I just keep it open in background so yes seems like banters fire when I resume game for moment. Nothing bad with it, I like to get more banters/chat. I…
  • Today I also expanded and at this moment I'm patching what is needed, for choices when to use spells on creatures with protections (like Minor/Spell Deflection, Shielf of Archons, etc.) - in case her allies is dows (because some of her allies are ex…
  • Worked out, patched and included "behaviour improvement" for most of defensive spell (in any way defensive, be ih Hardiness, Shield of Archons, Death Ward, etc.) Also added different blocks for same spell, but with different conditions needed to tr…
  • What you mean by tweak her? If you mean any modifications, I did not touch anything about her .cre or scripts. Dialogue seems to happen after I resume game (stop pause). Maybe game timers are running as game is paused for some time (just guess), so…
  • I was even not sure if there is bug about it, just found strange that he say just one word, and Dynaheir response to it. Good think we discovered it. I anyway document anything, be in Sandrah related or something else, in my play, as overall suggest…
  • @Roxanne - Again Ogre-mage with other ogres are attacked us, and moment aftet that Winski appear, and rest you can see in picture. Seem he just teleported in and after one word, out. Is this normal? And do I need Dynaheir anymore? She initiate dial…
  • Yes we won from first try but it was super hard, depleted all spells and potions, ended up using Potions of Regeneration. Soon after, I did not post this, teleported in group of another Ogre/Magi (3 of them) but we killed them, they were not nearly…
  • We killed swordsman - just me alone 1vs1. Alya the Killer. After that we engaged ogre-mage. What a hell of fight. Yes, could did better, if I prepared more Mirror Images (and Imoen also) instaed of Acid Arrows. But.. maybe I'm wrong because exactly…
  • Dynaheir gives us piece even at area where we again meet Drizzt. We went for Nashkel to trade (now we are rich again  ) and to give Henning a Winter wolf whatever. Isra require more XP to level up compared to Minsc because Palading require more tha…
  • Ok we fully cleared Gnoll stronghold and release both prisoners. Dynaheir joined party (later I can split her from Minsc, have that component installed, but for now we need her for your quest about Sandrah). So we returned with missing guy at Naskhe…
  • Roxanne said: Another hint to Zombie Lord (as you meet his kind at other times) (Spoiler) Classic Ghast? Ghast as I know have chance to Hold you on hit. Btw., I did forget to attach picture in last post, but now I edited it, so it i…
  • Tnx for info. Yes, as I recall that Gnoll with ring is somewhere upstair at stronghold. We will wreck them all I'm searching all area before final assault on Gnolls. So my input on this area (which is not same as non-modded game). When you cross …
  • So this is my nice Isra. I put her new + point in Katana, and bought Ronin's Blade from samurai guys. As for now we do not have any two-handed magical sword (she is proficient there from start ++). Later when she progress I will have one more +. Ron…
  • All spells which I did work about Ameralis to patch is completed few hours ago. She use and combine them with fighting perfectly. I have no objection. Three more offensive spells is left to complete, and I need to work them from zero (just have bas…
  • Thank you Rox for info. I was well aware that you meet Drizzt after completing Durlag's Tower. But I was not aware that meeting him in Ulgoth's Beard was not timed. So I was always get there as fast as I can. Good to know. Yes Drizzt Saga is not ea…
  • Here we go. We get nice girdle forged in High Hedge. Reached Demonic scroll and Elminster after that, in time. Killed Graywolf, returned Emeralds, and get Isra. Her stats is not so awesome, and she is already proficient for two handed sword and tw…
  • Ok, if I won't miss any content because of Khalid and Jaheira, I will let them wait for now. Plan would be this, pick a Minsc (as I know, his request for his witch are also timed but there is enough time, it is not so quick), I have items to equip …

  • Yes, these are samurai guys. I completed quest for them. I mixed and confused Seawatcher (lighthouse) and SeaTower (still did not ever play that content but I will), but soon after I realised that. I edited my last post so please take a look, I ne…
  • We beat that encounter from first try. Get to of money from it. Also, samurai guys now opened shop for us, so there is indeed interesting items. Description for one girdle say it gives +5 luck. And is stated as usable for Barbarian. I did not check …
  • I don't get this. I can't find a way how to access another area near sea. I think it should be between CandleKeep and Seawatcher. EDIT - finally - you can access it from High Hedge by going left. Lets face that encounter now.
  • Ah, now I understand. Yes, some spells works just up to some level of creature. I wrongly called "SeaTower" area, it is called Seawatcher. We just bought two helms of Charm protection (can be further upgraded, but I did not check about it because …
  • Caserius_Tendook said: @Roxanne and @Ammanda it was stated earlier that there isn't content for Thorin and he doesn't get played much.  Is it because he lacks content?  He is a pretty good fighter and i enjoy having him but am considering repla…
  • Hey Lich, nice to see you. There is one helmet for sale at Temple near Beregost, description says it protects agains all mental attacks except Hold. I will later check with NI, does it also protects against Sleep. We anyway need to find some better…
  • I already mentioned I picked necklace in Trade way South, found near some killed people, which you have to give to someone in Beregost. Not a big deal, but I intend to complete every quest even minor ones. So it happened I sold necklace to one of me…
  • I don't understand what it have to do with randomness. Component "drop items upon petrification" (sorry if I mistake some word, can't recall name 10000%) are intended for you to get items from enemies you turned to stone by whatever means. Due to fa…
  • One interesting note. Maybe you remember few days ago, I reported that I mistaken and Sandrah is not immune to petrification, during fights in "Mutamin garden". But she is immune to petrification by amulet (and have protection from creature type, b…
  • I used only Keldorn as I recall from past, but I did not remember him to be forcing us on anything. He complained in Shadow Thiefs guild, and I agree with him about it (I always did want to wreck ST but at same time did not see vampires as perfect c…
  • So she can't be part of SoD later, but only in initial plot (I suppose you refer to Korlasz family tomb) ? What about being a paladin? You play evil party?
  • Regarding Isra, I did not know she appear in SoD. Just as last time I did EET play, I now also have installed Isra both for BG1 and BG2. Chance is high I would include her in party now, she seem fine to me and I would like to try Cavalier in party…
  • No EEKeeper. That is intended because it is mod added. You will have a, lets say long way to regain book (as I recall, at least few encounters). First you go at FAI, outside keep, I think at top part of map. You will encounter someone related to …
  • Hey. Glad to hear you have started EET. Hard to tell exactly which level you can expect, depending on how many content you have added for BG1. But as you play with 50% XP reduction and full party, I think you will be fine. Your gold will be lost w…
