Kidnapping of Boo - Billy not spawning
« on: December 20, 2022, 02:21:21 AM »
I've tried searching the forum, pinned threads, and general Googling and haven't found anything. Sorry if this is a repeat and please guide me to the right place to look if so.

For the Kidnapping of Boo quest. Billy, who is supposed to spawn in front of the Sea's Bounty Tavern isn't doing that. I watched someone play the mod online and saw that he's supposed to show up there, and it's also written in the walkthrough on the wiki. I've tried resting, moving to another district and coming back, etc. and it hasn't worked. I also found the creature code (WWBILLY) and tried spawning him but it doesn't do anything.

How do I proceed here? Is there something I am missing or a way to console myself forward?

Seems like I figured it out after trying a few things. Here's the solution for anyone else who came here looking.

1. Make sure the global "WWBooGone" is set to 1; use EEKeeper (for EE version of the game) or ShadowKeeper (for vanilla).
2. Make sure the global "WWBillySeen" is set to 0.
3. Then walk Minsc up to Billy outside the Sea's Bounty tavern. If billy isn't there, create him using CLUAConsole -> C:CreateCreature("WWBILLY").
4. This should trigger a conversation between Minsc and Billy. Billy will then run away into the upper floor of the Sea's Bounty. Go inside and he should walk over to four thugs in the back and you can initiate another conversation. The quest should proceed as normal from here.
