What level is the party at when importing from EoB 1 to EoB 2? Is it a set level or a cap, or the exact levels your party is at the end of EoB 1?
Exact levels. Fun part is that you can transfer even completely new level 1 party to Eob2. It is done by just copying savegame -file to eob2 directory, so party transfer can be done at any time during Eob1. There is a challenge: can you beat Eob2 with level 1 starting party? Never tried that myself.
I know this is solved but there is something amiss here for me:
Started Eob with default party and finished EOB, all characters levels 7 to 8. Transferred party over, loaded party, all was fine minus some items that were too powerful. Played until I realized I actually needed the thief.
Everything I have done so far, including uninstalling eob2 and reinstalling it has still failed to let me transfer my Eob party over like before.
I can load the old EOB game just before I kill the actual Beholder. I've tried both, killing him again (game just ends) and simply re-saving the EOB file (original default party, but leveled of course, 4 plus 2 dwarfs) and when I go into the EOB folder, copy eobdata.sav, paste it into eobII folder, fire up the game, go to import eob party, the party is the default party but as it was at the start of the game (2-3 level) with default gear.
It loaded the party with all the gear and levels intact before, but I cannot seem to do it again since restarting my game (due to actually needing to keep the thief) - does it create another file in eob II folder that I have to removed? I uninstalled it and reinstalled it but the problem persists.
What is wrong? What am I missing here?
I go into the EOB folder (after checking that yes, the eobdata.sav is in fact currently as was saved (level 7-8), exit out of game, copy that eobdata.sav over to the EOB II folder (even putting a copy in the cloud folder) but when I go to import the eob party, they are the basic party again.
Again, it worked at first, but over & over, it fails to work as it did in the beginning...
