|Throne of Bhaal BETA Patch 26499||4.2MB||Download|
This BETA patch is being provided to fix a particular issue with the Throne of Bhaal 26498 patch (above). If you are having a problem with save and load times noticeably increasing, the new Throne of Bhaal 26499 BETA patch has been found to resolve the problem. The patch is applicable to the English, German, French, Italian, and Spanish versions of Throne of Bhaal.
Note: Please keep in mind that this patch has received limited testing and so is marked as BETA. You should only install this if you are having very slow save and load times in Throne of Bhaal. If you are not experiencing these problems, do not install this. Installation of the 26499 BETA patch must only be done after the 26498 patch is installed.
To repair a slow saving/loading saved game, you must first have the BETA patch installed. The patch installer copies a new BGMain.exe into your Baldurs Gate II root directory. Then start the game and load the affected game (with the slow loading time), and resave it (the saving time will continue to be slow at this point). The save game has now been fixed and future saving/loading of the saved game will now take the normal amount of time. This new BETA patched version of Throne of Bhaal is still multiplayer compatible with the 26498 patched version of the game.

|BG2 Electricity Review by Olan1Durai (Submitted)||121kb||Download|
|This is a comical Physics review done for the author's high school AP Physics Class. Please note that this was made to entertain, and that some of the questions may not have the physics concept completely correct. This is the complete (and corrected) form of the version posted in SP's Baldur's Gate 2: Shadows of Amn forum. Several people found the plain version entertaining, so the author wanted this greatly enhanced version to be made available to them.|

|Logs of a chat with the Baldur's Gate II development team, "sponsored" by the Vault Network. I've put logs from both channels (where questions were asked and of the one where they were answered) together in one file. If you actually decide to read it all (it was left unedited) you'll be able to see that the most interesting questions were answered after the end of the chat or not at all. Kudos to the channel operators for showing us how chats are NOT supposed to be done.|

|Ultimate SpeedZone Chat Log||N/A||Read|
|Another addition to the endless bunch of chat logs with the Baldur's Gate II development team, this time by a pretty unknown site and AFTER the release of BGII. The chat ran through a java client which wasn't all that popular judging by the comments. Some questions posted are pretty stupid and should've been ignored by moderators in my opinion, but all in all the chat was pretty interesting.|
