Hey all. Just a quick question. I have a new game installed and goofed and didn't balance the xp and am leveling at a really fast rate. I know there used to be a toned down version of the  xp bonus files for the original saga. I found a version that  gives the xp I have now. I  thing 1000 xp when scribing a 1st lvl spell is too much. Would love to find the ee version of the toned down traps locks and spells 2da I had in the OS game for EE. Any idea would be great.

Just make a (text) .txt file with Notepad, then copy this into it:

2DA V1.0

DISARM_TRAP   1000 1000 1000 1000 1000 1750 1750 1750 1750 1750 2750 2750 2750 2750 2750 3250 3250 3250 3250 3250 3250 3250 3250 3250 3250 3250 3250 3250 3250 3250 3250 3250 3250 3250 3250 3250 3250 3250 3250 3250
LEARN_SPELL   1000 2000 3000 4000 5000 6000 7000 8000 9000 0    0    0    0    0    0    0    0    0    0    0    0    0    0    0    0    0    0    0    0    0    0    0    0    0    0    0    0    0    0    0

You might want to add the 41 to 51 levels...

And then edit the figures, and use "Save As..." and name it as xpbonus.2da and move it into the game folder override folder. Easy. My suggestionm is to Set the Pick_locks to start from 1000 and then reduce it with 50 each level, same with disarm traps... and leave the Learn spell as is.


Yep, Jarno Mikkola. my Mega Mod FAQ. Use of the BWS, and how to use it(scroll down that post a bit). 
OK, desert dweller, welcome to the sanity, you are free to search for the limit, it's out there, we drew it in the sand. Ouh, actually it was still snow then.. but anyways.

So set pick locks and disarm traps at 1000 and then go 950 900 and so on for each and leave learn spell at 1000 ? I will try this

I'm curious, is this also available for the vanilla game, BG2/TOB?

Yes. But it's not like it's any different though. And you can do the very same thing there. It wasn't in the orioginal BG1 though... but the EE has one.

Thank you. I followed your link to the IESDP. I have never really looked at the files in it and I forgot about it completely. Again. thank you.
