look for OLMGUAR1.BAF in the RoT\BAF folder. It says

SetName(63273) // Castle Guard but it ends up being really messed up every time. So maybe the TP2 needs to be changed?

If I open this file with the Editor the file looks really messed up.
But if I open it with the Wordpad all looks fine:

IF
	Global("DeadPeple","GLOBAL",1)
	Global("ChangeName","LOCALS",0)
THEN
	RESPONSE #100
		SetName(63273) // Castle Guard
		SetGlobal("ChangeName","LOCALS",1)
END
I made your changes and the OLMGUAR1.BAF looks like this, now:

IF
	Global("DeadPeple","GLOBAL",1)
	Global("ChangeName","LOCALS",0)
THEN
	RESPONSE #100
		SetName(30115) // Guardian
		SetGlobal("ChangeName","LOCALS",1)
END
I think that was the changes I should made. Right?
Do you think this will work, if we use the .baf instead of the .bcs file as fix?
And can I use Wordpad to make the changes or messed I up the files if I saving the changes in Wordpad?

O.K. with the Editor I can do the changes, too.

This show up in the Editor:

IF[]	Global("DeadPeple","GLOBAL",1)[]	Global("ChangeName","LOCALS",0)[]THEN[]	RESPONSE #100[]		SetName(63273) // Castle Guard[]		SetGlobal("ChangeName","LOCALS",1)[]END
The [] represents only the return-sign there exist.
So here are the changes with the Editor:

IF[]	Global("DeadPeple","GLOBAL",1)[]	Global("ChangeName","LOCALS",0)[]THEN[]	RESPONSE #100[]		SetName(30115) // Guardian[]		SetGlobal("ChangeName","LOCALS",1)[]END
Could that work?

So, i recently found my old BGII and went to buy tob for it. read some faq on gamefaqs and got on the idea to play some mods

now, i wanted to try out the arena, found my character unselectable, did a forum search, tried what the people did there ( for this case, i deleted every single "makeunselectable" line in the RA4300.BAF ) and it still refuses to work.

i never got around to actually learn how to post a weiDu log but since the rot is the one and only mod i have installed, i doubt, i seriously doubt, its that.

so, i tried removing all the unselect lines ( also from the myficut.baf files ) and it refuses to work no matter what. im kind of frustrated because i really dont wanna go butchering a zillion files just to play a part of the game.

so, whats up? am i looking in the wrong files? does the game just hate me?

for info, im trying to participate with my main character which is a kansai fighter dualed to a mage.

the only thing i can think of is the issue being the main character.

i didnt try with wulfgar yet, but i'll be rather disappointed if there is no fix to let me fight with my main character.

You can try changing the payer's scripts in the customize screen. Try the standard attack. We were using advanced enemy scripts I think so the Standard attack wasn't working.

@Leomar,
I think you are on the right track with the BAF. No matter what I install RoT with, the BCS says change name to "You leave the torch for now..." sentence every time. It should say castle guard or what ever the BAF says, but I don't know how it gets messed every single time the same way. That is why I think the BAF is fine, just how the TP2 is coding into the install is what I can't understand.

i tried _all_ scripts but it doesnt change anything. from a point of "beimg able to control the character" just changing the AI script is kinda lol

i checked the .BAF file if i missed some unselectable lines but there were none.

does it matter when im playing a multiplayer game offline?

im about to just give up on it and ctrl+y myself through it -_-

Did you edit the BAF before installing? If not, edit the BCS using Near Infinity for the area in question to delete those lines. It should work then. BTW it will be batter to turn your party AI off in that case and just control your gladiator.

im about to do a fresh clean reinstall and just need to find my BG original saga case to install BGT. i'll do RoT after that, and just edit the BAF before installing.

didnt know that would make any difference. well, now i know. i'll be posting tomorow or the day after ( depends on how much success i have with finding a case in this chaos ) if it worked or not.

but there is also another problem, i dont know if thats related to the selection thing, but anyway

when i ctrl+y kill the opponents, or just assuming i will be able to kill them and win all 5 rounds, the staff member for the prize ( previously, BEFORE i fight in the arena, he speaks normally with me and tells me that here i can claim my prize ) is blocked. "bla bla can't initiate talk, Staff Member appears to be busy"
i have that occasionally with other npcs, even rot unrelated ones, and its really annoying. because, once they're like that, they never go back to speaking with the PC again.

im pretty sure there should be a CLUA command for it, but no idea which.

anyway, its 5 am here, i bothered HOURS to fix the problem on my own, and im now going to sleep it over.

1)Hello, isn't it bit strange, to meet drizt when returning from underdark back to kill bodhi, while having second drizzt in my party?
In other words, shouldn't the mod remove this encounter?
2) When I returned from the quest in the temple (with the hell gate opened), all my party members had permanent effect of lighting damage with duration permanent/Until death, it was little bit annoying, and I guess it is just a bug of some sort, not an inention.
So I have to remove it with NI.

(1) RoT does remove the 2nd Drizzt encounter - after UnderDark your party arrive to that same outdoor area, but there's no one there.

(2) I'm just about to start that quest, so I'll look out for that effect.
FOLLOW-UP: My party didn't have that lightning effect.

RA3707:

Two very high-level priests cast 'Sunray' that also damages the party. I happen to have a low hitpoint NPC (Xan) with me, and poor thing got chunked.

The fight might be Gilgamesh's intention to simulate a bit of beat-up before entering the temple, but perhaps we can find some other way to defeat the outside demons, or script a pre-buff on our intrepid heroes before the battle starts.

most of the traps in RA5601 and RA5602 cause me a CTD upon triggering them, it also seems fairly impossible to spot them, even with about 150 (with items) in spot traps
although so far it can be avoided with ctr+j

Use a download manager. I have no personal recommendation of one, but take a look @ Free Download Manager. Or choose a manager that has localization in Romanian.

Is MXSPLDRU.2DA in your override folder? Are you very-very sure you extracted all of RoT's contents into the game folder (i.e. where BGmain.exe is located)?

MXSPLDRU.2DA is a standard file from a vanilla install of BG2, so if it's 'Not Found', something is wrong with your entire installation. If so, uninstall everything, re-install the basic BG2, check if MXSPLDRU.2DA is in the override folder.

Vanilla means plain old basic BGII-SOA + TOB + 26498 Patch only.
