[Bug] Spider's Bane and Grease

edited April 2016 in Troubleshooting
I don't know if this is the right place to post this, but I encountered a bug. When equipped with Spider's Bane, my character is immune to web and other movement-related spells, but not grease. I opened up nearinfinity to check this, and yes, the sword has the effect "immunity to effect (101) - Grease overlay (158)". Still, it does nothing.

I'm playing Baldur's Gate Enhanced Edition v. 1.3.2053

Edit: hmmm... Digging deeper in NI, I looked at the grease spell. It seems on top of this "grease overlay" effect, it also affects movement rate (effect: movement rate bonus (126)). I think the grease overlay effect present on spider's bane doesn't affect this changed movement rate.

EDIT 2 (SOLUTION): I figured it out myself, yay!

Edit 3: It works but I messed something else up. Now haste doesn't work on that character. I'm still looking to make it work. I will, eventually :smile:

Edit 4: Holy Bhaal, I was right the first time. It's actually funny. My 3 characters had Paws of the Cheetah (hey, I killed the guy 3 times, stop judging me :lol: ). When I was testing if the new Spider's Bane worked, I removed the Paws from my Spider's Bane guy, but the other 2 had them. So IT LOOKED LIKE HE WASN'T HASTED IN COMPARISON, but he was. Anyway, the solution is as follows:

SOLUTION: I added the line from the free action spell (immunity to movement rate bonus (106), which I figured is the slow effect from grease and maybe "slow" itself) to Spider's Bane using nearinfinity. It works now.

    Good spot! :)

    Could you attach a save with Spider's Bane and a character who has Grease memorised?

    Sure, but my game is pretty edited, lol. With shadowkeeper and nearinfinity. Still, that didn't have anything to do with that (I suppose). I looked in the forums and some guy had the same problem (but noone answered).

    IMPORTANT: I edited the original post because I figured out a solution, 'til they patch it up.

    Edit: @typo_tilly Do you know how to export something I edited in near infinity? So I can upload the "patched" version of spider's bane. I don't know if it's possible, I've never done it; I always make my own edits and then copy the entired Baldur's Gate folder if I have to reinstall. It's not the most efficient way, maybe, but it works :lol:

    Ok, I've put it up as report 22227. :)

    You have a scary character! :D I went to FAI only to have the guards attack me -- and Dorn was dead. XD I went to Beregost to recruit Kagain to hold the sword while you cast Grease on him.

    No, I'm afraid I don't know much about near infinity really. :)

    EDIT - Added your solution. :3

    Great! I hope they fix it in 2.0!

    And yes. I accidentally killed Dorn. Not that I was going to use him anyway, so I let him stay dead, hehe. Do you like my character's idea? I use a Cavalier for it's immunity to poison, and make him hold the Spider's Bane, a couple fire res rings. That way I can cast web, grease, and cloudkill, while he tanks and swings at the poor immobilized enemies and my mage swings fireballs to his heart's content. It's tons of fun.

    He was powerful, that's for sure! :) Sorcerers are so much fun with different spell combinations. :3
