Technical Issue... can't interact with anything!

    Hi,

    So I can't interact with any people for some reason. Like, when I click on their name the dialogue box will never come up.

    I have Rogue Rebalancing, SCS2, Tweak Pack, and Dungeon-be-gone.

    I'm running Vista 64.

    Is this a known issue with any mod or with my graphics setup or OS or something? Any ideas on a fix?

    edit: MY graphics card is a Radeon 4600 Series. I have a suspicion that it may be to blame, since I ran BG2 fine before I installed it. Although it could be the mods, since there are a couple mod components I've installed for the first time.

    Weird. Where are you in game? Does the game crash? It could be a script that can't run but triggers anyway and messes with your game (farfetched but possible if it happens when entering a new area or at the end of a quest stage, or some mod content). Does it happen with all saves or just with your last? (might be savegame corruption from quick saving).

    I've played with Dungeon be gone and never had that happening to me, I'm not familiar with the other mods. If it's not in Dungeon Irenicus I doubt Dungeon be gone is to blame.

    If it only happens with only one savegame it's probably not your graphic card either.

    As for quick fixes, reloading from a previous save is always a solution if you have another save (obviously). Otherwise you may want to tamper with the cache, I'm not sure that it will fix anything though. You may want to try and get rid of mods to find the faulty one but that is something that can prevent you from loading any of your current saves so be very wary about that.

    The easier thing to do is to go back to a previous save and try and have different saves at all time (always a good thing with older games anyway). If the bug happens again then it may be a problem with hardware or mods though.

    Umm, that's a bummer indeed. Well I have a mountain of mods all installed right here and have never ever encountered such a game-breaking bug. (tap the wood)

    Since you use many mods, I assume you already had the official ToB patch and BG2 Fix pack on top of that before the mods installed? Other than this I have no idea and can't think of anything but a complete uninstall and reinstall of the game. (as dreadful as it sounds.)

    I will try to figure out if its savegame corruption... that seems the likely culprit as any I guess.

    what happened exactly was:

    1. I created a 6 player party in multiplayer (playing by myself, but using multiplayer so I can create all 6 chars).

    2. I have to kick out one of my players so Imoen can join briefly (otherwise the dungeon-be-gone dude won't teleport in... this has always happened to me). I then let that party member back in, and kick Imoen out.

    3. I successfully speak to the dungeon-be-gone guy, he teleports us to the end of the Irenicus dungeon.

    4. I can't exit the dungeon, no matter where I click.

    5. I uninstall Dungeon-be-gone thinking it may be the culprit (although I've used it before with no probs), then move my multiplayer quicksave into singleplayer for convenience, and then join back into the game. I can successfully exit the dungeon at this point.

    6. I exit the dungeon, watch the sequence with imoen and irenicus, then exit the game to play later.

    7. When I come back, I can't talk to anyone. Other people can talk to me (for example, the guard of the circus tent talks to me when I come close as he normally does), but when I click on people I can't talk to them.


    Weird huh? I guess savegame is the most likey culprit... I'll see what I can do!

    EDIT: Didn't this forum used to have an "idiot of the week" award, or something? If so, I nominate myself! haha so I've taken a break from BG2, and have been playing a game where you interact with objects by RIGHT clicking, so I've been RIGHT clicking everything, instead of correctly left-clicking on objects I want to interact with... wow I feel like an idiot haha. So my "problem" has been solved! :doh: x 1000
