    Okay, so I've laid the smack down on all of Poquelin's minions, destroyed his precious statues, and slapped him around the first time I reach him (when he keeps going on about Crenshinibon). He retreats to save himself, and I'm drawn back to the start to stop anyone from re-opening Jerrod's Stone and kill off Belhifet.

    Here's where the problem happens.

    My buffed-to-the-gills party that has so recently beaten the Ilmateri-impersonating demon in their first fight arrives just fine. The problem is that the game goes into "cutscene mode", for want of a better term, and removes any player controls over anything happening. Then... nothing. The game sits there, no events occur, nothing triggers, no dialogue, no combat, nothing. In short, it freezes (and all the buffs wear off slowly), and there's nothing I can do about it.

    Has anyone else experienced/reported this? Do I need a patch to fix it, and is it available on SP?

    Which version of the game do you have? The pre-patched combo pack, or standalone game (HoW or not)?

    The stand-alone game, without HoW.

    I'm guessing from your response, Tal, that there's an IWD patch I need to lay my hands on to fix this.

    Indeed, though I'm not sure if it fixes that bug after the fact... In any event, grab the IWD patch from SP.

    Cheers, thanks Tal.

    If it doesn't work after the fact, I suppose I can just lay a righteous furious smackdown on Poquelin again.

    The first thing you should always do, before starting to play any game (or expansion), is to download and install the official patch(es) for it. Should be a reflex move for any gamer with access to an Internet connection.

    Heh... it would have been, except that my only internet connection was at university, and I didn't get a USB drive until last year.

    Thanks again for the help. Will have to work on my patch-reflex.

    If nothing else helps you can try to teleport your party to frozen Easthaven using the cheatconsole.

    Oh. I have HoW+ToTLM and AB. I did not get the patch since I was told that expansions already cover it. I will not face that ugly bug, right? :mommy:

    You didn't experience this bug when you played before so it's rather unlikely that it will happen to you just because you installed a few expansions.

    But in my latest run I only had IWD and patch. Then I unisntalled everything, re-installed IWD+HoW+ToTLM and AB. I did not install patch this time as I thought it was not required. I am right, yes?

    TotL is in itself the latest patch of the game. The last HoW patch is 1.41, and TotL is 1.42. So in effect you do have the most up-to-date version of the game. No need to (in fact you shouldn't) install any of the patches (whether IWD or HoW patches) at any point.
