What is the process for exporting a character from BG1 to BG2, I can't seem to find a way to do this. Win 7 recently purchased games from GOG. Thanks for any help.
There are two ways:
1. Copy your final save folder (it will be called something like '000000002-Final-Save') from BG1 into your BG2 save folder (you *only* need this for import purposes; you cannot play this game in BG2).
2. Export your character manually in BG1 (go to the character screen in-game and select 'Export'), and copy the appropriate character file (*.CHR) from your BG1 'characters' folder into your BG2 'characters' folder. Note that character file names have a limit of 8 letters, so choose a short name at export time.
In both cases, when you start a new BG2 game, instead of creating a new character press the 'Import' button and then choose either 'character file' or 'saved game'.
