Longbows not usable by multiclass clerics
Fix: Install Item Revisions after BGT

Eee, that could cause a lot of other bugs, so I would install the Bow mod... Ii-h I can't seem to find it just now, well when I get to home, I'll guess I have to upload it myself.

In case the BG2 game crashes post the content of your baldur.err file. To get it to record stuff, open up the 'baldur.ini' in your game folder with Notepad, and under the [Program Options] section in the file, make a new line and type in 'Logging On=1' (without the '' quotes, unless the line is already there)... Save the file and exit. Now go back into the game and try to reproduce the crash. Then look in your game folder again for the Baldur.err file and open it with the Notepad to analyze its contents, or let us do it.

The Mods that were formally known as 'BP components' use the same items as a base of their own items as the IR modifies, so if you install IR later, the items in TDD, TS-BP, SoS, BGT and other big mods might have different properties than the once in the real BG2 that are modified by the IR.

Fix: here (or install Haiass after SCSII)

This is not a fix for the BWP Fixpack (even says so in that link :P). The fix is the 2nd part of what you say, or wait for the next release.

Longbows not usable by multiclass clerics
Fix: Install Item Revisions after BGT

The main IR component does not make longbows usable by multi-class clerics. The optional ''Remove Cleric Weapon Restrictions from Multi-classed Clerics" component does, and it should be (and is with BWP) installed much later than the main component. If this component appears not to be working, please let me know.

The npc1 mod, which is installed almost last, will give the option to fix this if you run it manually. At least it did so for one of my installs.

I haven't got the code for this but if the proficiency bonuses changes (As with TDD for instance) so should the following vanilla BG2 dialog.tlk strings (Corrected text included):

StringRef: 9588

You have been given proficiencies to start your character with. These represent the ability to effectively use weapons. You may choose from any of the selectable proficiencies available to your character class. A fighter character will be able to choose the same proficiency up to five times. This will grant additional levels of specialization with the weapon listed. Keep in mind that a character can use any weapon available to their race and class whether proficient with it or not. However, there will be a minus to the attack roll if the character attacks with a non-proficient weapon.

Proficiency Slot Table:
1 slot: none
2 slots: +1 to hit, +2 to damage, an extra half attack.
3 slots: +2 to hit, +2 to damage, an extra half attack.
4 slots: +2 to hit, +3 to damage, an extra half attack. -1 to speed
5 slots: +2 to hit, +4 to damage, an extra half attack. -3 to speed

Isn't this like the "True Grandmastery" components already in the BG2 Tweak Pack or whatever? If so, I'm sure it also mods the relevant strings. Seems kind of overkill for the BG2 engine though if you ask me (which is probably why they changed it from BG1 to BG2).

P.S.: codeboxes suck, or did I say that already? :P

Something like that, yes. The problematic mod isn't BG2 Tweak Pack however, but TDD. In my game TDD is the only mod to have altered wspecial.2da, but apparently it doesn't update the relevant strings with corrected values. Since TDD is no longer supported (unless I'm mistaken) I thought this would be a natural job for the Fixpack.

I agree about the overkill part, but I think the bonuses was too nerfed with vanilla BG2. Should be something in between maybe.
