[Kingmaker] Archeologist Quest is Unaccessible

I've felt a bit of nostalgia recently and decided to toy around with the premium modules. I enjoyed Shadowguard a lot, even though it was mostly a prologue to an untold adventure, and I liked Kingmaker, because it wasn't - there was a story with a semblance of an ending. However, I've found a bit of...

It's been a long time since I did Watcher's Keep, but I honestly don't remember any trouble with this part when ToB-leveled. I usually give the demons a Holy Smite or two (this is a very neat spell because it doesn't hurt your party if there aren't evil people in it) or, if I have any, a Dragon's Br...

Hey all, I'm just posting this since it's a quasi-resolvement of the issue The game got updated this morning (all by itself like Claudius said it would) and now they walk briskly like SoA got me used to . Since I did edit the ini file, I suppose the change just got implemented now. Plus, I found ass...

This isn't something you should publicly admit Hey! When BG1 came out here in Poland, it was on 6 CD's, and most people didn't have a pc that cpuld run it! Our family was exceptional because my father was an architect and was right there at the front when new design methods came out. This meant I c...

Well I remember it messing up when I jumped around the rooms once but it may have been a bug. I still think having those rods is important when accessing the laboratories. If you have accessed the Slime Library and the Slime Laboratory, you should also have the green rod-key from the venomous serpen...

That level can be a pain if you're not doing it in the right order - that is, if you don't enter the fire laboratory first, talk to the imp, deal with the big ventilator and so on. Now, I don't remember well enough, but there is one extra key in the green room (poison laboratory or whatever they cal...

Sorry, but nope. If the party has gained experience, then the party has gained experience. The end. You can manually give exp to one character by cheating (not sure about the console but certainly via ShadowKeeper), but that will be experience points "out of the void", quite apart from anyt...

Well, that explains a lot, thanks. But how do I patch a steam game? I don't really know the first thing about this, I googled the matter and it seems there are no patches available for the steam release for some reason (?) Sorry I'm being dumb here, I never thought I'd come into contact with Steam a...

I only really played through with Vici once, and that was with a Neutral Good Drow Elf of my own who was convinced he could save her soul, and he did! But even he was sorely tempted to give her the flat of his blade on a few occasions. That's probably the best way to go about that part of the story...

Both good points, although I still think violence is not a good benchmark for Forgotten Realms, because if it was, there would be no good people in there at all, by that definition. Everyone kills. Also, I don't remember 'groveling' to Keldorn, but maybe some of it was lost in translation. Agreed on...

I found that tip while googling the problem, and did that already... the frame rate in the ini file was specified as 30, I changed it first to 45 then to 60 but it didn't change anything at all I don't really want to cheat in boots of speed, but I guess I will have to, I just don't have enough time ...

Speed in EE

Guys, help! I got a gift of BG EE on Steam (damn sweet thing, too, being gifted by someone half a continent away ) and I finally managed to run it. I know people are divided over it and Tutu and whatnot, but I'm pretty excited about it because I actually never got to finish BG1 in the first place. A...

I don't know of any specific solution, sometimes I got the cursor to highlight the one and sometimes the other, but IIRC there is nothing worth trouble in there, one health potion or something like that.

Galraen, I'm not very well up on Forgotten Realms lore, but isn't the surface pretty much at war with the drow? That's what I thought, at least. Anyway, I do think either both these situations, orcs and drow, are condemnable (is that a word?) or neither is. But practically everyone kills everyone el...

I love the Jaheira romance. It has so many side quests and it's a good story. Quite a big reward at the end of it as well. That's a good point, and of course it's all subjective, but Jaheira's attitude puts me in mind of a malcontent mother-in-law, not a woman with a budding affection. Still, I can...

There was a lengthy discussion here on GB on "what makes Korgan evil," it was pretty interesting. I will repeat myself now, but for me, Korgan was just a ruthless opportunist up to the point where I talked with a hooker in the Bridge District, and Korgan said he likes women to struggle and spit him ...

I think you're not supposed to kill the lich on the first visit in the tower. You're supposed to enter the tower, get imprisoned by the lich, meet Jarlaxle, accept the quest and then confront the lich a second time, killing it. I like that quest, mostly because the dialogue with Jarlaxle shows a dif...
