    That's interesting. Why would it be so risky? Just curious.

    So... what happens if some of your companions get perma-death chunked and (since this is IWD, not BG) there are no NPCs to recruit to make up the party? You have to go through that rigmarole of creating new ones in MP? :/ Or can you not get chunked in IWD?

    You don't need new party members. Rule number 36, No excuses, Play like a champ!

    I'm new to the Icewind Dale games and I think this is a serious question that needs answering. Are there any recruitable npcs in this game as in BG or would any new companions need to be created as per the 'rigmerole' mentioned at the beginning of this thread.

    There are no recruitable NPCs in Icewind Dale; you make your entire party at the start. No workarounds are needed for this.

    The method AlexT posted is only for when you want to change your party mid-game.

    One of the small powergamey ideas I've seen is to only create your dual/multiclass party members at first.

    You then knock out a few very easy quests (like killing the bugs in the basement of the pub) on HoF mode for the XP boost.

    Then you set the difficulty back to however you want to play, and create the single classed party members.

    Cheesy, but it's a small boost in the beginning. I'm glad it's been eliminated.

    But doesn't that give you useless level 1 characters?

    Except as this thread proves it has not... and when you think about it, it is not all that uncommon for an adventuring party to come together over time rather than all at once.

    And I only wanted to know since since I'd accidentally maxed wisdom instead of intelligence of my soon to be fighter->mage.
    Note to self: Never create a party after 11 PM.

    This is one feature from the original game that we could not port to the new engine, without risking serious code breakage.

    Are there any plans to implement it in the future? Not that I much need it, but I think the game is missing some feel from the original without it.

    Please be more precise about your instructions. Do you mean the "save" folder that is created in My documents? Because there is no "mpsave" folder next to it. Exact filepaths, please.

    Unless you have any multiplayer saves the folder will not be there, but you can just make it yourself. Put it in the same directory as the "save" folder (My Documents/Icewind Dale - Enhanced Edition/mpsave)

    Is there a work around similar to this for the iPad version?

    The save folders aren't protected so you can use file manipulation software like ifunbox to move the files

    Start a new multiplayer game then save the game, that will create the folder. Then do the stuff that Alex T says..

    if you feel you NEED 6 in the party then restore them with savegame editor. Or carry on with smaller party....

    i guess a long winded way of creating potential party recruits, is to install this mod:

    http://forum.baldursgate.com/discussion/36873/iwd-npc-v5-for-iwd-ee-is-now-available#latest

    you can create your party as normal at the relevant screen(6 chars), and the 5 npcs are standing about at the inn in easthaven. SO that gives you a choice as to who to keep in the party.

    Minor problems of getting back to easthaven during game. tp there with cheat code i guess.

    I'm not gunna lie, I bought the Enhanced Edition with the idea that I would not resurect party members when they die, instead just create a new character, something I remember from the previous editions. And so I was pretty upset to find out that this ability is no longer there. Is there any possibility of this being added as a patch? This whole transfering to a multiplayer save file thing is really annoying and kind of makes me just not want to play the game, which really sucks as I love it.

    @that70sgirl7887 Well, as @Avenger_teambg said, an adding a new party member mid-game feature wasn't added to the EE-engine. http://forum.baldursgate.com/discussion/comment/568821/#Comment_568821

    I guess the chances of adding it to the engine in the future are 50/50. In the end, we didn't have a Quick Loot bar feature when BGEE was released. And the Devs are working on the UI while creating the Adventure Y. So, everything is possible.

    It seems to me it would be far more efficient and exacting to use the console for experience. :P

    I find that most of the time I don't start at 11 PM, I start a 7, and a few thousand rerolls later I look at the clock and it's 3 AM and my wife is wondering why I haven't gone to bed yet...
    Haha! : D Is it just me or does Icewind Dale seem to draw in those of us with a hair of OCD? Just kidding. I'm glad to hear I'm not the only one that has spent more hours than I care to admit rolling dice...
