    Hi!

    I usually have a romance with Jaheira and also this time, but nothing has happened for ages. How can I via SK see if the romance is screwed?

    Regards

    Your sex education classes should give you a few clues. :p

    But seriously, her romance is very bugged. Although the G3 Fixpack seems to solve the problems.

    If the JaheiraRomanceActive variable is a 3, you're screwed.

    Make sure you have the latest patch installed.

    Have you got the patch installed and do you have any bug-fixing mods?

    This is the important variable. If it is set to 1 or 2, make sure that you aren't in an unsuitable area of the game for the romance to progress.

    If you bought the keepsake amulet from the man in the docks (next to Valygars home) the romance gets put on hold until the bandit quest happens. To force the bandit quest to happen go to the windspear hills and rest outside (may take a couple of tries). After that you should be fine.

    The keepsake amulet is not required for the romance and does not delay anything -- it's just a cool easter egg in the game. Events, such as the bandit encounter, are a required portion of the romance and must be done before the romance can advance. Some of the required events are area specific -- the bandit quest requires resting in an unpopulated area (i.e., not a city or town).

    I suggest checking out the romance guide by extremist. It's in the tips, tricks and hints section of BG2.

    I have the official patches and the Baldurdash fixes. I'll give a look when I return home if the variable is 1, 2 or hopefully not 3. If it is 3 can I swicth it back somehow to ie 2?

    You can, but then I am not sure which love talk it would trigger next.
