I'm planning to scribe rp entries in the personal journal of original BG2, but I would like as well to transfer them out of the game, maybe with the help of NearInfinity or other.


Does someone know where or how they are stored? I haven't found a way to do it when looking around in the game's files.


Thank you for your help.

I've definitely done this before somehow. They are stored in the baldur.gam file of your save game (bottom of the list of attributes in NI), but it may be more practical to just copy them out via ctrl-c.

Thank you for your answer! I'll make good use of it, since copy pasting was unwieldy and I also had the same problems that are mentioned and resolved here [G3: Add Map Notes crashing]
