    If you have played BG2 before the choices will make perfect sense. I recommend you play through the starter dungeon at least once.

    DBG leaves you shortchanged, compared to a party that played through the entire dungeon. You miss out on all the free gear dropped by the monsters, as well as a lot of potions. Using Near Infinity I gave my party 800 gold to compensate for all the free gear. I added this to AR0603.bcs:
    IF
    Global("Door06Unlocked","AR0603",0)
    THEN
    RESPONSE #100
    GiveItemCreate("SW1H06",Player3,0,0,0) // Varscona +2
    GiveItemCreate("POTN14",Player3,3,0,0) // Oil of Speed
    GiveItemCreate("POTN17",Player3,4,0,0) // Elixir of Health
    GiveItemCreate("POTN08",Player3,25,0,0) // Potion of Healing
    GiveItemCreate("POTN27",Player3,1,0,0) // Potion of Fire Breath
    GiveItemCreate("POTN52",Player3,5,0,0) // Potion of Extra Healing
    GiveGoldForce(800)
    SetGlobal("Door06Unlocked","AR0603",1)
    END

    I've played the original a few times but never had this mess come up. Lol.
    How do I know what to choose :confused:

    The mess I mean are the options to choose from not what you posted ;)

    In the normal version of the mod there are only 2 choices to make:
    (1) take the Acorns to the Windspear Hills or not
    (2) go meet Yoshimo or not.
    Answer to first is Yes, answer to second is up to you. Neither choice will be that big a deal.

    If you are getting additional choices, that is from some mod you installed...

    This is what I'm talking about for the crazy options.

    [​IMG]

    [​IMG]

    That's just the first one. There's another when dealing with Yoshi

    If I drink the dirty brown liquid I get this:

    [​IMG]


    If I choose shaman I get this:

    [​IMG]

    [​IMG]

    If I choose shaman it takes me to Yoshi where I get another strange option (I had him join me but I don't think that matters??):

    [​IMG]

    [​IMG]

    If I choose the "Recall Spirit" I get taken to the end of Irenicus's dungeon where I now see:

    [​IMG]
    [​IMG]

    I have no option but to click continue where I get:

    "Mind Locked Away"
    1: Sure
    2: No

    that gives me:

    [​IMG]

    There's the spell description but for some reason I can't upload it.
    It then says "Ethereal Retribution"
    The only option left is to "End Dialog" which Jasper leaves.
    You still get all the stuff he normally gives you but these VERY bizarre options are just that. BIZARRE!
    Anyone have any kind of clue???

    --

    Sorry I forgot to mention that this is all happening with Jasper Saint Baerd (or however you spell his name) with the "Dungeon-B-Gone" mode. But I don't know if it is still compatible with the new version??

    The mod is probably not compatible with the patch version you have installed. Looks like the options are leading to string references that have been changed in the dialog.tlk file.
    i'd advice uninstalling the mod for now until an updated version is available.

    Depends on the mod really, and if it has an option to uninstall in the first place.
    For most Weidu mods, you can just re-run the installer .exe which should be located in the baldur's gate installation folder.

    For example, i have the bg2tweaks mod installed, so in my installation folder is a file named setup-bg2_tweaks.exe
    If i run the file, it takes me through the installation again, but it will detect that parts of the mod are already installed - giving me the option to uninstall them instead.

    here's a picture to show the process a bit better :
    [​IMG]

    If the mod you have installed did not place an installer .exe in your BG folder, you would either have to remove the files it has changed from the override folder by hand, which is going to be hard if you don't know which files have been changed exactly.
    The only other option would be to completely remove your installation of Baldur's Gate, make sure the installation folder is empty afterwards so no old mod files remain, and then re-install the game entirely.


    As far as shamans go, they should just show up as an option hen you pick a class during character creation. They do for me at least.
    As long as you're not picking a race that can't become a shaman that is. You can only become a shaman as a Human, Half-elf or Half-orc. it's impossible to become one as an Elf, Dwarf, Halfling or Gnome.


    (this screenshot s from bg1:ee, but it should be the same for bg2:ee, though the interface will look a little different.)

    In your main BG2 directory you should find a program with a name like Setup-DungeonBeGone.exe, double-click on that and a Command Prompt will appear. Simply choose:
    Code:
    [U]ninstall
    Process should be automatic from then on. Press Enter when prompted to do so.
    (I had to use Code tags to enter the last word without underlining the remaining part of my post.)

    I could not view a single one of your photos on my Firefox browser, I am logged in too...

    yeah, looks like his photos are deleted or not accessible on photobucket. either he deleted them or he wento ver his bandwith allowance with his photobucket account.

    not that i'm surprised - photobucket is a terrible image host. he'd be better off using something like imgur.com to upload his pics to.

    It seems that you need to click on the Image button in the options bar of the posting a reply dialog box, you will need a valid URL for each image.

    Yeah, that's what i'm saying - the pictures were working fine earlier, he was using valid URL's. it's just that the pictures have been deleted/restricted on the host server after he linked them here, causing them to break.

    Sorry all. I moved them into a BG2 only folder to try and better organize my stuff but I didn't think about the links going dead. Can you see them now?

    If you're just posting temp images then any image host that displays them should be more or less ok, but for anything game-related that you want stored permanently I'd rather use our own media gallery instead. It also allows you to easily embed your uploaded media into your forum posts via the "cam" button in the text editor.

    If I change the resolution of my computer and then run the game it works like it should with everything big and in place. Not small and scrunched up in the upper corners.
    Is there a way to change the res for in game?

    The resolution your monitor is set to is the resolution the game will run at. The smaller the resolution, the larger everything in-game will be, but naturally that also means that you see less of the map on a single screen in the middle.
