The reason that I sometimes use it is that all it does is that it speeds the rolling up and actually uses a roll that you have made. I know about the cheat code and I also know how to edit the stats in Shadowkeeper. Before I had web access I worked out for myself how to max stats using a mule carryi...

If you are using the BG2 Game Engine, i.e. Tutu or BGT, you can use the Frabjous re-roller which rolls over and over again very quickly, saving the highest score as it does so. If you wanted to, you could leave it running overnight and you would be certain of getting a high score. I don't. I limit m...

That is indeed amazing. I once rolled 102 for a paladin, but that was using the Frabjous re-roller. I was so pleased to roll 98 for an illusionist thief this week. To get a screenshot I press FN + PRTSC and then in paint paste the image and save it as a jpg, but I think that if you gp into the ScnSh...

Saerileth NPC - The best NPC mod I've come across with one caveat, some of the early encounters are too overpowered. Romance, added content and ToB content. If it wasn't for the over powerful opponents early on I'd give this 5 stars **** . If you are talking about the dragon, all that you need is g...

The being that you have to speak to in order to exit is quite hard to spot.
If anyone has difficulty in that respect feel free to ask. However living where I do, (Nepal) I don't always have internet access.

The being is to the left of an area where you meet some kind of demon.

I certainly like the mod. I would play it just before the final battle as some of the items are WAY overpowered. However, you need them to complete the saga which is not easy. There is one last little bit that so far I have chickened out on, as it is so hard . In my current game I intend to change t...

With some quests, the reward you get depends on your charisma. Sometimes the only reward is experience.

This sounds like a bug. However there are some triggers for causing them to attack such as picking up wardstones. Some trigger things, some APPEAR not to. Not too sure whether they do or not.

If you have level 1 NPCs installed there is an option that makes their experience more closely match that of your character. That seems more logical to me.

I have noticed that there seems to be a cap to the level at which characters join in the un-modded game.

I know that. It'd be just nice if I do not have to resort to cheating. What's the difference between using Shadowkeeper and using some other mod to change things. Though Shadowkeeper can be used to cheat, so can other mods or even the game itself. It's up to you to keep your concience clear I'm afr...

Firstly, the goodberry spell is pretty pathetic unless you have the mod that improves it.

No you can't sell Xan's sword, but if you are the same alignment, race etc. as Xan, you may be able to use it, depending on what mods are installed.

What is the highest score I need? I'm thinking about Find Traps/Open Locks specifically. I want to dual Imoen, but I want her to be the most effective Thief before doing so. I'm not into dualling, so can't answer your question myself, but the links from this post might help. http://www.gamebanshee....

I think that there is a mod that gives you a rod of refuge which enables you to go to a room for rest and storage of valuables.

Control Panel and uninstall a program will also work.
One problem I have had though is that sometimes if you try to re-install into an identically named folder, it doesn't work. I think that it is something to do with the registry entries, and I'd rather not go there! :D

That's the best, but there is another that can be pickpocketted at Ulgorth's Beard. It is better against big guys, but not a lot.

It's worthwhile doing the top one or two floors at that stage. Some nice items that save hassle such as the infinite number of arrows and bolts, so what you've done is fine! :)
