If you click on a loot item in a chest or on the ground,and you see it flash
rapidly, do not click on it a second time; immediately click on something else
on the screen. Some players have reported a bug that causes items to disappear
this way, and it's an annoying way to lose a suit of plate armor.
Don't be shy about buying potions of Perception for your thief, and for good
measure, you should also have someone casting Find Traps when you're in Durlag's
Tower. The traps there are plentiful, hideous, and more than capable of wiping
out a character instantly.
Werewolves--you gotta love 'em. If your battles with the moon doggies are going
poorly, you may want to concentrate on magical attacks: Try to hose them down
with as much magical damage as possible per round until you finally kill them.
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.
Enable blood and gore (German and other international versions)
Note: This procedure involves editing a game file; create a backup copy of the
file before proceeding. Using a text editor, edit the "Baldur.ini" file in the
game directory. Add the line "Memory Access=100".

Funny character comments:
If you right click on any character in your party (all except for the main character)
nine times, they will say four different funny things. They each have three original
voices when they are selected, but after they say them all three times, they will
say very strange things.
If you like going to the taverns and buying drinks to find information for your
journal, you can remove your intoxication by saving and reloading your game, even
after the bartender refuses to give you any more drinks.
Use the following trick to get to level 20. Create a new character. Use the
"Create item" code and create BOOK03 through BOOK08 to increase your character's
Constitution, Strength, Dexterity, Intelligence, Charisma, and Wisdom to 25 each.
Then, use the experience cheat to get your character to their highest level. Before
you go on make sure you can use Dual-Class, but do not use it yet. If you cannot,
try killing some people to lose reputation and lose your class (become fallen).
Dual-Class may work now. If it does, export your character. Uninstall the game
and just install Baldur's Gate. Now when that is done, just start a new game,
import your character, and use Dual-Class . If it worked the game will say you
gained a level. When you click "Level up" it will bring your new class up to 20
Note: This takes some time to do. To make the first part faster, use the
"Create item" code, make MAGE06 and equip the item.
Enable the CLUAConsole:EnableCheatKeys() code. Find Oblek in Naskhel. He will
offer you gp. Do not accept it. You will get a reputation point instead. However,
after it is over kill him by pressing [Ctrl]+ Y when he is highlighted. His body
will have 3000 gp.
Kill any unimportant NPCs that have weapons or armor. They will also have gp and
other items. Spawn a creature by enabling the CLUAConsole:CreateCreature("")
code and kill them any way desired. Note: Using [Ctrl] + Y to kill them will not
result in an experience point gain. A good monster would probably be the Flaming
Fist Wizard and Flaming Fist Mercenary.
Press [Print Screen] to save the current screen in the "scrnshot" sub-directory
in the game directory.
Use the following trick to obtain a lot gems and sell them. You will need any
potion and a gem. Go to your bag and put the gem and the potion in the quick
items slot. For example, put the potion in the first square of the quick items
and the gem in the second square. Select the potion and exchange it with the gem.
Exit your bag. In the quick items you will see two potions. Click the first potion,
which is actually the gem. Go to your bag, change the potion and the gem again.
Exit your bag and you will see two potions again. In this example, click the second
square for the gem, even though you see the potion. Go to your bag and you will
have a lot of gems that you can sell anywhere.
When you first start the game and reach the load screen, there is a "Mission Pack
Save". You can export the party leader. Enter his biography and click the "Export"
option. Then, start a new game and import him back in. If you done correctly, he
will be your starting character and you will have all of the armor and equipment
After clicking on a loot item in a chest or on the ground, if you see it flash rapidly
do not click on it a second time. Immediately click on something else to prevent items
