As per title. When trying to add a point to the scimitar weapon proficiency the game freezes. The last thing noted is the *click* heard when pushing the +-button, but it also happens when clicking the text to the left of that. It happens both during level-up and character creation. In both cases it is only the scimitar/etc. line.
When trying anything during the freeze (like clicking the mouse) the blue-circle-cursor appears, and if then clicking escape the "this program is not responding" choice menu appears (but not noticable since the game is still on the foreground). Baldur.exe uses 25 percent of total CPU power, which I assume is one full core.
I am running Win7 and have the banterpack, flirtpack, Unfinished Business and BG2Tweaks installed, though nothing that alters the weapon proficiencies. The only thing installed *since* all was working fine would be DungeonBeGone, which has since been uninstalled. Some minor tweaking to items, but not the scimitars.
I did have hardware trouble a little while back (power failure and graphics card trouble) and the computer crashed a few times, once while in-game. I can't find the crashdumps of these issues unfortunately...
