Cheating Problems....
« on: September 30, 2010, 04:36:03 AM »
Hello this is my first ever post on any kind of forum. That said, I purchased BG2 Collectors Edition recently, played through SoA & ToB...very good games. Now I am looking to play through them again but found out that I could cheat a little bit. I want to use the Ctrl+8 or the Ctrl+Shift+8 to max my stats at the character generation screen, I dont care much for the other ones. I learned that I needed to first create a clean back-up of, and then edit, Baldur.ini file with either: "Debug Mode=1" under Program Options or use: "Cheats=1" under Game Options. I tried doing debug first without it doing anything, then I tried the cheats luck. Then outta desperation I tried both...natta. Then I restored my clean file and started again....nothing again. I also tried un-installing the game and re-installing it, that worked out perfectly but I still cant Frustrated to say the least. By the way? Dungeon-Be-Gone was a great idea

Please Help!

You will be better off to just download an application called Shadowkeeper. You can then start a game, save it, then go out and open the saved game and change the stats accordingly.

I put both Cheats=1 and Debug Mode=1 under Program Options and it always worked for me. But yeah, ShadowKeeper is easier, if all you want to do is character tweaking. Unless you've got to check variables periodically or hit CTRL-T to make a specific amount of time pass or something, you won't need much more.
