Hello everyone,
haven't played BG2 in a long time and bought the GOG edition a couple of days ago.

However there seem to be a number of bugs in the game. Characters are not there there where they are supposed to be.

- In the Bridge district, the theatre group did not show up (I already freed Hear Dalis and sent him away, he took the gem).
- I got the task from the temple of Lathander to get the art quest done. However Sir Sarles is not building in the the government district.
- When I freed the DeArnise stronghold, I thought I can dispel magic on the guy on the second floor and wouldn't have to kill him.

Is GOG not selling the latest, patched version of BG2? I installed the latest BG2 patch over the GOG installation, however it didn't correct the error when I re-loaded. I really don't want to restart the whole game anew. Did anybody have similar experiences?

I'm currently playing the GOG version and am almost at the end. GOG's version is the latest, and I've not experienced the issues you have. Have you used any mods at all? Did you apply the patch prior to starting the game? If yes on the latter question, this may be your issue.

That was a bug in the disk version as well, although I think it was addressed in the fixpack
Although the ring of human influence will work on him without the fixpack.
As to the other 2, I have never come across them in many play throughs of the GOG version.

But if you applied the disk version patch to the GOG game you will have to reinstall.

The GOG version is fully up to date. You need to uninstall/reinstall. Do NOT patch the game with official patches.
