I've posted my links in some threads, but I just thought it would be simpler for those looking for a XP Cap remover to make a new thread.
Just download the file attached to this post.
And now that I've given the download links, let's have some instructions and a word of warning.
XP Cap in BG:EE is controlled by three files:
XPCAP.2DA STARTARE.2DA STARTBP.2DA
Actually this had me scratching my head when I tried to make a simple XPCap remover as modifying XPCAP.2DA has always been enough. In BG:EE's case changing just the XPCAP.2DA did not remove the cap, so I went on looking for the cause.
STARTARE.2DA and STARTBP.2DA control the starting conditions of the main quest and Black Pits, respectively, controlling among other things your starting position, starting XP and XP Cap for that campaign, proving that the new EE engine is able to deal with multiple campaigns with their own individual limits.
The game has all the tables up to level 40 BUT there are no HLAs (High Level Abilities) present. That means that if somehow you reach a level where you'd normally get an HLA you have to hit ENTER on the character screen to skip that.
If you want to change the XP Cap to any other fixed value all you have to do is edit the 2DA files and change the -1 into whatever value you want. Actually you can also change the starting XP in the main quest and Black Pits as well. Just change START_XP from 0 to the value you want in both STARTARE.2DA and STARBP.2DA.
Notice you'll need a text editor to change the file, such as Editpad Lite. The game will not recognize the 2DA files if they're converted to Rich Text Files or Word Documents.
So you must be asking yourself how to make it work. It's very simple. Just copy the three files into your override folder. If you don't have one, create one in the same place the movies and scripts folders are located (usually bgee installation path/data/00766), In my computer, for instance, it would be placed in C:\Games\Baldur's Gate Enhanced Edition\Data\00766
If you are a Steam user, the default override folder path would look something like this: C:\Program Files (x86)\Steam\steamapps\common\Baldur's Gate Enhanced Edition\override
