I can't find the baldur.ini file to change the script so you can create items. Does anyone know where to find it on my computer. Im using Windows 7 64-bit.

Likely in the Virtual Store :

C:\Users\user name\AppData\Local\VirtualStore\Program Files\program name

You may need to enable 'show hidden files'

Um.. I am pretty sure it is in the installation directory. If you are talking the GOG.com version it can usually be found in C:\Program Files (x86)\GOG.com\Baldur.ini .

This is true for both BG1 and BG2.
Baldur.ini *is* located in the main game directory. However, if you installed to any "\Program Files" directory, your efforts to change it will prove futile in any Windows later than XP. Windows will "protect" most of the files by replacing altered ones with backups it maintains from the original install or official update. This is a common complaint in the Infinity Engine modding community, and appears frequently in their forums.

You will see one copy of the Baldurs.ini under your installation directory. You can't directly edit it, though there are ways to change the content if you have admin right.

But it doesn't matter, because the game does NOT read from that file.

I repeat, the game doesn't care what you do to that baldurs.ini under the installation directory. It doesn't load it at all.


Like Kezardin said, you want to look at

C:\Users\user name\AppData\Local\VirtualStore\Program Files\program name

and edit the baldurs.ini found there.

The game will read from the file if replaced by a non read-only life.

Sounds like the \LocalVirtualStore\ location is where newer Windows versions stores the protection copies when installing to \Program Files\ subdirectories. As a modder and a mod tester I regularly modify the Baldur.ini file, a necessity for finding many errors that occur. My previous comment still stands. And as notredatall stated, make sure the file is not "read only" or nothing you do will change it.
