German and other international versions: Enable blood and gore
Create a backup copy of the file before proceeding. Use a text editor to edit the "Baldur.ini" file in the game directory. Add the line "Memory Access=100".
When you remove characters from your party, they tend to stay where you left them. If you want to change your party and add an extra cleric temporarily for a big battle, you can always drop him later and return for the fighter you left behind, as long as your remember his last location.
Extra time before attack
If you are resting and are interrupted by an encounter and do not have enough time to respond, press [Space] to pause game play. When the monsters attack, they will be stopped (as well as your party) until the game is resumed.
If you want more hidden comments from NPCs who cannot be in your party or you simply want the results faster, right click on their circle. A good example is a Flaming Fist officer who, if clicked enough on his circle, will say "You there! Give fifty pushups."
When starting the game in the town of Candlekeep do all the "quests" (errands for guards and other characters). This includes any task that gives experience. Once you have done this go to the "Character Screen" and export your character. End the game. Start a new game and import your character. This allows you to start the game with the amount of experience that you had previously gained. Repeat until this as many times as desired.
This trick will duplicate any item that can be "stacked" in the inventory. One of the best uses is to duplicate gems to create an unlimited source of gold. Place a potion of healing in one of the quick items slots. Open the inventory screen, replace it with a gem, then immediately return to the game screen. The image of the potion should still be in that slot, but the gem's name should appear on the help scroll if the pointer is left over that slot. Left click on the gem once, wait for the target cursor to disappear from your character, then left click the gem a second time. After the target cursor disappears again, return to the inventory screen. The number of gems in that slot should now be 65352 instead of 1. Do not stack any additional gems in that slot, or the CPU will reset the total to 20. Note: This trick works with the original release of the game and may not function in patched versions.
