jsidhu762: You'll need a thief to find traps in dungeons. In both games you get a thief pretty early. There are others too, if want to switch them. There are also traps outdoors as well. The only place outdoors with a high concentration of traps is the spider forest. Aside from that outdoor traps are few and far between.
Trap mechanics can be annoying, for smoother experience one might want to try this mod
Does anyone know of any links for the Fixpack that work? Even the alternate site is down.

I'm assuming you mean the BG2 fix pack. You can get it on Github.
Yes, thanks. After some searching found them there.
Well, the github files are useless. I downloaded them in zip format. I unzip them (I tried the version 11 fixpack and the anthology) and each of their respective .exe files that I'm supposed to use have a .tp2 extension. I rename them to .exe but I get a message that they don't work with my version of Windows. Is there a reason github can't just have a regular files containing an exe?

The Github files are exactly what they should be. The tp2 file is the install instructions for the weidu installer. You ONLY need the "bg2fixpack" folder from the Github package PLUS a weidu exe. Any other mod you have will be using it. ALL weidu mods use the same file for installing. All you do is copy any installer and rename it to the name of the folder (bg2fixpack) with a 'setup-' prefix, so you would have setup-bg2fixpack.exe. If you don't have any mods installed, so can't copy a weidu installer, just download it here:
[url=http://www.weidu.org/~thebigg]http://www.weidu.org/~thebigg[/url]/
(That's the forum doing funky things with the url)

You just want the "weidu.exe" and nothing else. Paste it into you game folder (NOT the mod folder) and rename it as above.
