    Everytime I try to speak with a NPC, ie. Sewer golum in the SoA part..I keep getting the message that it is busy and won't talk to you. How do I fix this? I can't play until this NPC speaks to me.

    Wait. Are you playing with Throne of Bhaal installed? If so you can install the patch here, but you should be posting in the ToB forum so people know what the solution to your problem might be.

    i might be wrong, since it's been ages since i played anything but the EE version, but don't you have to patch both SoA and ToB in order, not just ToB :confused:

    Like you it's been a while for me, but I thought ToB had the SoA patches in it...

    It's been ages since I did everything "from scratch" instead of restoring a backup of my already modded game, but IIRC the ToB installer will patch SoA up to whatever was available when that ToB was released, and the ToB patchers are designed to update both SoA and ToB.

    IIRC, my install order was
    SoA
    ToB
    Official Patch
    Baldurdash or later G3 Fixpack
    Ease-of-Use or later G3 Tweaks
    Ding0's Tweak Pack
    My custom non-weidu tweaks
    Any other mods after this

    Install order is pretty much how Slick says.
    SoA
    ToB
    ToB official patch
    baldurdash or G3 fixpack
    Ease of Use or G3 tweaks
    Any other mods

    Save the game, attack them (forcing them to respond by retaliating) then load the game and they should be back to normal.

    I assume that it is the NPC being incorrectly flagged as already being in conversation preventing them from conversing, but I can't be sure.
