    I'm at the horde fortress and my halfling rogue have until now had no problem getting stealthed. His skills are around 6-8.

    Now however for no apparant reson his sucess rate, along with the rest of the part, is 100% failure. I click the button and I get a "hide failed" message but no sound effect.
    Reloading didn't help.

    Mods I have are: Light of Selune, Ease of use and slowdown fixes. And of course official patch.

    What's up?

    Is he maxed-out in Hide and Move Silently, does he have the maximum possible score for his character level? (Character level - 3, character level not class level?)
    Is he wearing anything with armor check penalties?
    Apart from that I don't know.

    Solved the problem some time ago, but just in case someone else get's this glitch.

    What I believe caused the glitch was that my rogue had used a potion of invisibility and was disarming traps. He failed with one trap and got hit with one of those nasty light of selune traps.
    After that I believe his invisibility got dispelled or he attacked something and I then tried to hide in shadows, which didn't work as I earlier mentioned.

    I got rid of the glitch by frenetically clicking the hide in shadows button a second or two until I got the proper sound effect and my rogue disappeared.

    After that there haven't been any problems.

    The stealth mode has a few other peculiarities as well, such as when one of your buff spells fails due to the target being invisible, it takes literally AGES (read: at least a full round) for the hide mode to vanish off if you manually break it by unhiding. And that's quite a while *after* the character doll has no longer been transparent.
