At the top of your option screen does it show version 2.5.26498?
Or in your BG2 directory you should have a with that version number.
It doesn't show anything in my options screen, nor is there a . There is, however just a normal , which lists the version as Release Version 2.5.26461.
This is after installing SoA and ToB, but prior to installing any mods.
As for quicksaving and quickloading...If that fixes it, the probability of it fixing it must be far lower than I was willing to endure - I quickloaded, and loaded the same game, at least 5 times without any change.
Is there a trustworthy place to get the patches, given that Bioware doesn't have them, and Interplay/Black Isle don't exist anymore?
I'm off to try my Google-fu, however, so hopefully I have a solution before you get back.
Thanks for the lead on a possible solution, however!
Found the patch, now I'm going to install all the mods (This was all from a fresh install, I uninstalled after posting this message, figuring that I'd need a clean install to apply any fixes), and see if the situation has been rectified.
