observing from these forums it isn't too complicated to do yourself, but very timeconsuming, i'm just wondering if there is a way for me to allow my Sorcerer to use and become grand master with Twohanded swords, i've already added the proficiencies, but i'm not sure if there is anything else i need to do

    Do you have dltcep? You need to alter every two handed sword to allow sorcerers to use them. This may or may not be very time consuming. I don't know how many two handed swords are in the game. There is a quicker way using weidu. There is a thread here about removing weapon restrictions for all classes. In that thread, I posted a mini mod that gave fighter usability to all classes. It can be modified to just two handed swords for just sorcerers in the tp2, but it may look a bit like an alien language. If you want to start doing sine serious modding, I can direct you to some of the many tutorials. If not, I don't mind altering the code for you. Not at my computer now, but I could to it by tomorrow

    i actually downloaded your file from that convo, after editing the Weapprof.2da i am able to use everything i want, a few more modifications, and i'll likely be able to make my dragon disciple super powered XD but no i don't have dltcep, don't even know where i would find it ^^; i rarely mod my games without weidu installers

    I'm glad you can use everything you want!

    Dltcep is extremely useful for modding. It allows you to easily create abilities and items. The beamdog team actually uses it. It can be found here:

    There you will always find the most up to date version.

    While I'm providing useful links, this should help you get a feel for the sorts of abilities that you can attach to items or abilities/spells:

    http://gibberlings3.net/iesdp/opcodes/bgee.htm

    Each "#" is what is known as an 'opcode'. So, if you see somebody talking about (eg) "opcode 178", they are talking about "Spell Effect: THAC0 vs. Creature Type Modifier" (i.e. to hit bonuses against certain creature types). If you are interested in doing some modding, practice making spells and items first. Then try a kit (there is a wonderful tutorial stickied here). Then perhaps read some weidu documentation to get a better feel of what is actually being done:

    http://www.weidu.org/~thebigg/README-WeiDU.html

    Perhaps then think about scripting (or do that earlier--it's my favorite). You would look in the weidu link above, but I think that there other tutorials out there as well. But you can also look at 'triggers' and 'actions' here:
    http://gibberlings3.net/iesdp/scripting/triggers/bgeetriggers.htm

    and here:
    http://gibberlings3.net/iesdp/scripting/actions/bgeeactions.htm
    respectively. (the second link, 'actions' gives you a feel for the basic structure of scripts).

    Anyway, tons to learn if you're interested. Personally, I like modding more than playing!
