Thanks! I've already played the game through a few more times since my last post but others will need to solve these - or similar - problems in the future, so, replying to old threads solving old problems has a value as well! On a side note: I tried playing on insane difficulty for the first time ^^...

In a minor sequencer, I usually have 2 Melf's Acid Arrows; if there's a mage enemy, I use it on him/her since they do damage over time, possibly interrupting further spellcasting.

So basically I've got this slightly complicated request. Apparently, my Paladin PC commited a heineous act when gathering the Tears of Bhaal to battle Irenicus, and now her alignment is fixed to Neutral Evil. I have tried to remedy this by using the Shadow Keeper editor, but when I open the save ga...

Trying to finish up Athkatla for good, exploring everything I've potentially missed. Except for the locked chest in the Jysstev Estate (Warded mechanism or whatever) there's just one door I can't seem to get open; near the northeastern district exit there is a small building leading, seemingly, to ...

It's a little unclear exactly what you tried on whom, so I cannot with certainty say that "what you did, didn't work because..." - since I'm not 100% sure about what you did. I do think of one thing though: Very often, creatures that are immune to a specific spell effect, are not immune to the same ...

Well, I finally tried teleporting; I ended up in the wrong end of the prison - I think it's where Haer'dalis and the others are, the last room you would normally reach. There were no prisoners and all the dialogue became pretty much nonsensical since everything is in the wrong order.

If anyone is still interested in charisma: CHA does one more thing that is hardly ever mentioned. People don't seem to know about it, it's mentioned very vaguely in the short "description" of what a certain stat does when you click on it while rolling. Charisma affects leadership (I think that it sa...

Thanks QuenGalad, I want the characters to be there, that's the problem, so I'm sort of trying to figure out how to respawn them and thought that resetting quest- and area values just might be a neat little trick to do just that. If I have to respawn everyone individually, fine by me Thanks galraen,...

Actually, something just occured to me: If I could reset the quest value so that it hasn't been started yet and reset the values for the playhouse and Mekrath's Lair, so that those areas haven't been visited yet, MAYBE that would work? Then perhaps I could go the playhouse, see the silly play with B...

I think the only solution is to revert to a save before kicking him out of the party. Nah, I'm positive it can be fixed as long as one knows what values in the game code (I don't even know if "game code" is the proper rhetoric here ) needs to be changed, and to what. Loading a previous save just is...

How do I fix the 'Haer'dalis disappearing/playhouse empty' bug? Any suggestions are welcome.

I'm a victim of a most annoying bug, and I need help to fix it: If you rescue Haer'dalis from Mekrath and you have him join your party in Mekrath's lair and then kick him out of the party again, he will take the gem and disappear, saying that he will have to take the gem to Raelis Shai himself.

Killing Efreets I used to have the same problems with Efreets, especially early in the game when I didn't deal that much damage. This was usually a problem when playing small parties or trying to kill the Efreet with a Warrior, having the rest of the party hiding from the fireballs and what have yo...

(Shouldn't it be "Demigorgon", isn't that just a typo? ^^) Anyway. I've been trying to kill the Demogorgon over and over and can't do it. When I use fighters to chop him, my record is to get him to "injured" status. If I then go up the stairs and heal, he regenerates really fast so killing him bit b...

There's just no point in trying to give Viconia a damage dealer role in your party. For one thing, she needs to cast all those imba spells of hers but most of all, she has NO attack speed whatsoever. My Viconia (I'm playing right now. Again. ^^) is level 35 with -11 AC, constant 23 str and I use gir...
