Try at night. I think that if it is night you can unlock the container without anyone turning hostile... This is if you're stealing from Shar's priestess... Oddly, I've never been able to complete this quest without sending the cleric with sanctuary in... But, I suppose an invisibility potion would...

You might also try upgrading your [url="http://www.nvidia.com/object/winxp_2k_91.31.html"]Nvidia drivers[/url]. Make sure you're BG2 is fully patched, as well.

I tried the Big Picture a while back, and hated it... It seemed mostly focused on scaling up the bad guys... But I didn't get very far with it (I hate tactics-like playing), so take my discouragement with a grain of salt. And, I don't know which componant of the Big Picture did what, so I'm of even ...

[QUOTE=Amran_X_Kaiser]Note about the magic equipment wearing, consider that cheating. If you want to improve your saving throws how about use better tactics so that it is not required and that can free up some item slots.

You'd want to read this guide, if you're really into cheese...

But ya, summons use and stealing from stores is a pretty old trick... But all the old tricks are new if you've not used them before, right?

I have, and the only problem I've ever had seemed to be fixed with a consistant install order. Install mods on both pc's in the same order, and as long as the single player didn't have any bugs, the multi-player won't... Now some mods are just buggy in general, whether multi-player or single-player.

I'd only use the Banter Pack with a small (2-4) person party... That was the only way I didn't find it annoying... A small party was too quiet for me, otherwise...

Of course, I only tried that once... Usually, I want more and more NPC's!

actually Fable was right on the first time... The Banter Pack has an optional Banter Accelerator componant. I've never tried installing just that part of it, but I'm fairly confident you could. You might just install the whole thing, though... As Fable mentioned, you run through banters quickly, an...

Make sure you've installed the chiset drivers for your mobo, as well... They were probably installed before you even got the machine, but you might check, just to be sure...

Windows uses RAM rather poorly, so you won't really notice a big difference...

IIRC, the ring of free action will not affect the BoS if the boots are donned after the ring.

That's an odd one... Are you perchance trying to install while the game (or Shadowkeeper) is still running? This will give you a similar error.

That should help Polymorph.
