Managed to install under XP after all. Install Shield was the problem. Would still be interested in the answer though, if anyone got it.

BG1 on Virtual PC 2007 (Win98), problem with scrolling

Hi folks, I recently decided I wanted (or rather needed) to go back to BG1. It was easier said then done though - I couldn't even install BG1 on my XPSP2 machine. After endless hours on the net, I installed Windows Virtual PC 2007 together with Win98. So far so good. And the game installed fine as w...

Sorry, but you have to be more specific. Are you talking about Ashenwwod (with a glowing tree in the middle, and a tree symbol on the map)? And the cave, is it the Predator Den? That's the only cave I've found in that area and it's empty after I cleared out the animals. No other area will show on th...

Where to find Ice Hag?

Where to find the Ice Hag? I've looked everywhere at least five times now.

MotB - spirit meter killing me

I just don't get this sprit meter stuff.

I have suppressed once but my spirit meter is now down to 7. I can't eat any spirit since I have already suppressed "today". Every time I try to rest I die. How on earth am I supposed to continue?

I prefer the Earth domain, which gives you both Toughness and the spell Stoneskin.

I found it myself thanks to a loading tip I've never noticed before: in the upper right corner of the quick spell box, there is an icon for converting.

Spontaneously convert?

After two complete runthroughs of the game (and several late restarts), I still haven't figured out how to spontaneously convert clerical spells. Could someone please help me out?

Even with a very good PC the load times can be terrible sometimes. Are you certain you're giving it time enough?

Have you tried to access these areas from another area then your current one? Sometimes it helps to take an extra tour, for some reason.

Neither did I my first time through. Then I played a Fighter/Rogue, this time a Wizard.

Guardians in Neverneath

Last time I did the area under Catle Never, Neverneath, i noticed two strange things about the guardians (I failed the questions on purpose in order to get the extra boot): 1) Someone is saying "Help me" from what appears to be inside the guardians. 2) There is a thread of question marks "??????" fl...

If you are going to play an elf, you have no choice but to go wizard as your arcane class. Unless you took ranger level instead of fighter, then you could go wood elf which is even better yet because they are waaaaay better than regular elves and half-elves and you could take bard levels instead of...

I made a powerful AA with bard and fighter levels on a NWN PW awhile ago but you must be a half-elf and well, half-elves are severely underpowered compared to elves. It was a great build for that PW since you can buff the tanks (and yourself!) like crazy and fire missiles of death from a safe dista...

True, I hadn't though about the XP penalties. Wizard seems to be the best choise then.

Any spells you definately shouldn't miss out on, or would you go for only one Wiz level?

Arcane Archer

How would you build an Arcane Archer? Ranger feels like a good choise martialwise, with the Point Blank feat at second level and Toughness at third. The Animal Companion at forth is nice, as are the spells Cat's Grace and Barkskin. But should you take levels as Wizard, Sorceror or Bard? And how many...

Thanks, good advice, I hadn't thought about the maximum number of enchantments. On that subject, is it possible to upgrade your enchantments by removing old and throwing new ones?
