Help, I've fallen into a bug and I can't unlock. I just completed the asylum and have been running into bugs like crazy.

First, My team had just whacked the last of the Pirate Lords men on deck when the whole thing locked up and wouldn't proceed to the sailing naration. Then, three times, I got through the Pirate Lord fight only to have the game lock up again just as the ship is sinking. It tried once to load the next area but stopped in mid load. The second and third time it did n't even start. I am going to try again after restarting my computer and see if a full start clears the problem.

I have been concerned that there are a few bugs. When I fought the shadow dragon he fought okay for awhile and then just stood there and let the group whack him.

Hmm, i have all the fixpacks and patches, but i still get that sometimes. In the same place, the Githyanki boarded, and i tried to kill them, they all died easy, and the captain just stood there with me smashing him to bits. And when i had him on near death, he wouldn't die. I let my character bash the guys head in for half an hour, which didn't work. It DID start a conematic sequence, but it didn't load. So, i have the same problems, but after a few attempts it worked. Maybe it's to do with some mods you have installed. All i can say is just cary on trying, it worked for me after a while.

To thegodthatfailed, do you have a Macintosh computer. I have a Mac, so I am wondering if the problem is Mac only or a generic bug that crosses platforms. By the way, I had you error too; Minsc was actually cleaning the Gith's clocks and was forcing his way on to their ship when he hit the Captain (whose Imortal).

What I finally did was switch operating systems from OS X to OS9. I ran the last saved game in OS9 until I was into the the sharkmen city (No failure). Then I transferred the save back to the OSX game version and am now well into the Underdark. Where I am finding an interesting Bug.

I call it the Pop-eye bug. First where two sailors standing near the Sharkman temple talking about the Pirate Lord. Then I found one standing in a wall in the Gnome village. I am wondering where the next sighting will be, perhaps in the Beholder City or wondering the Mindflayer lair.

I hope this is the last, I rearely admit this but I have never completed this game. The last time (which was also the first time) I could not for the life of me get past the Black dragon of Irenicus. Not that I could not beat him, never had the chance; the game would lock practically on sight of the wyrm. Then neverwinter nights came out and I just walked away from it. I have been told that the adding of the TOB mode should have corrected this. Only time will tell??

When I played BGII on my mac(have it for Pc now), I never encountered that problem. In fact, after I patched it, I didn't have any problems that I can remember.

No, i don't have a mac, so it must be a universal problem. But, after that one time, it's never happened again, so i'm not sure what the problem is.

Clear the cache folder, and clean the discs. If you still have problems, a reinstall may be in order.

I'll keep that in mind, though I seemed to have passed through the bug zone for the moment.

I have had so many bugs in the under dark its frustrating. When I got the fake dragon egg from Phaera a bug kicked in and I suddenly had the second set from the drow champion (I was still standing in the female fighters guild hall).

I had one last bug when I was escorted to the surface by the silver dragon. It kept locking right when the drow fight began. It would work in system 0S9 but then it wouldn't save. So I had to walk over to the Kua Toa area, clear it out piece meal including the drow section, walk back to the silver's lair, get my reward and be escorted back to the now cleared area.

So far I am in chapter 6 and nothing weird is happening yet. But as stated earlier I never got past the black dragon bug before.
