I did a search, but I'm not sure exactly what is going on. I started a game with a sorcerer. I'm using a party. I've been doing quests in chapter 2, and I decided I did not want the refinements HLA's installed (which also uninstalled swash imoen, but i do not have her yet). I quit BG 2, reran refinements, and uninstalled HLA's component. when i went started BG 2 up again and loaded my game, all my sorcerer's equipment (except for one of those stone's for headgear) was redded out and i was unable to reequip it. None of my other characters have this problem. I've tried restarting the program, reloading other games, and resting for days, moving to other areas. None of these change it, I am also unable to equip anything else. I think this is because I uninstalled the HLA component of refinements, but I'm not sure. I'm playing with ascension, some improved battles, apack, dungeon be gone, refinements, items upgrade. and it's completely patched and ToB.
Thanks again for your patience
