Have you heard of a search engine? I typed in 'infinity explorer download' and got something like 6,000 results. The FIRST one had your file.

Can't unequip greenstone amulet! + Ring problem.

I imported a party from SOA into TOB. Two of them were equiped with greenstone amulets (from a mordenkinans' sword spell). When I try to take the amulet off I get a message like 'you can't remove this' or something like that. Has anyone else run into this problem? Also my main character had the Ring...

OK sounds like I need to change the experience points for my single classed characters. BUT what about dual classed characters? I have a Kensai/Mage that is 12/17 in levels. So since he hasn't hit the point where he gets the special abilities it chouldn't be a problem right? HAs anyone tried this? H...

My characters didnt make any sound when I selected them, but they would when they got hurt. What difference does it make anyway? The game takes so little time to finish that its not worth worrying about.

I just finished the game and I can't beleive I shelled out $30 for that amount of gameplay. I imported my party from IWD and finished the game in THREE sessions!!! What a waste of $$. I figured that after I killed the dragon that I would go back up to the surface and somehow the game would continue....

I was never able to fill it up, but I have read that others were able to do it if they stored tons of arrows in it. I can't imagine playing the game without the bag. I always carry way too much stuff around with me.

Try turning off environmental audio. That seems to be a fix for many when it comes to lag.

When you caste simulacrum (and possibly project image-I havent ever caste it) the '5 summoned creatures' limit is disabled. So you can summon as much as you want.

afaik you can pause during multiplayer if you set it up so both players have permission. But I have only played MP by myself. Which is the way you could answer this question yourself.

Try it again. Position your theif right next to where he pops up. Keep pausing the game until youcan get the pickpocket symbol to light up and then do it....I got it on my 1st try so it can't be that hard. Image

Vehemence: 2nd time through I decided to exploit some bugs in the game. http://www.gamebanshee.com/ubb/biggrin.gif So I snagged an extra ring off Gaxx before he turned hostile, and I lifted an extra ring of acuity off that mage in the planar sphere.

After chapter 3 I only had 2 or 3 total healing spells memorized between my 2 healers (vic, Jaheira).

My second time through the game I played multi-player. So I exported my PC (.chr file) just before entering the asylum, and then I imported him back in after the dream sequence. That way you don't lose any atrributes AND you get to keep your special abilities. http://www.gamebanshee.com/ubb/biggrin....

I would agree somewhat with Radek. You will need a +4 weapon so you can get the Staff of Rhynn(?) from the adventurers mart. So I would put at least 1 point there. Katanas are a good choice and I would put the rest there +dual wield. You will get more points as you level up as a thief.

If you are playing IWD then the extra profs. are worth it, but in BGII no. But then again if you only want to use 1 weapon the little bonus may be worth it. FOr example my Kensai Mage uses Katanas almost exclusively. He only uses a longsword in 1 hand when fighting dragons (dragonslayer) or vampires...

You have the right idea. If you cast a delayed blast fireball that does 15d6 damage that means your spell could do anywhere from 15-90 hps of damage. SO the first number is how many times you roll the dice and the second number is the die that you roll. In class PnP (pen and paper) AD&D there were 4...
