Title: Cuv, how can I change IWD main map after installing HOW

Is there any way for me to change where the world map leaves you after installing how?

Heh.... I am not the best person to ask about IWD/HoW.    I have the games, of course, but havent done any modding with them other than to pull graphics and animations from them for BG2.  I have HoW installed, so I am not sure what the game files looked like before the install.

Well,  if it is anything like BG2 (which I believe it is, mostly),  then you would need to edit the StartAre.2da for the expansion entries:

2DA V1.0
BADVAL
                       VALUE
START_AREA             AR1006
START_XPOS             0440
START_YPOS             0464
START_AREA_EXPANSION   AR9100
START_XPOS_EXPANSION   1021
START_YPOS_EXPANSION   2519

Then you would need to override the worldmap.   Use NI to figure out where you should be... heck, I dont even know the names of the files in this game other than the one above.  But it will give you a starting point.

That is about the best I can do.    Hopefully someone else has some suggestions
