Problem with EEKeeper and BG2ee.

LegendLegend Member Posts: 34
Hi there! Firstly, I hope this is the right place to post this - if not, somebody please go ahead and move it, or delete it entirely if this isn't the right place!

Alright, so I hadn't actually used EEKeeper with BG2ee before this evening, I'd only ever used it for BG1ee, where it worked absolutely perfectly, no problems whatsoever.

However, this evening, I wanted to mess around with it for BG2ee, so I pointed it to the appropriate directories, and loaded a save, so far so good, but now whenvever I add any item to any of my character's inventories, the program crashes upon trying to save it.

This has never happened to me before, or anything similar, I've been using the gate/shadow/EE-keepers for years without any issues, so I'm at a complete loss as to why it's happening.

Any help with fixing these crashes would be much appreciated!

    Hi @Legend, could you list which version of EEKeeper and BG2EE you are using?

    Thanks
    Gus

    Edit: Working on the assumption that you have the latest version of each, no mods, and on a Windows platform, could you also start a new game and load it into EEkeeper to see if it still crashes?

    I had the same problem when using the latest version of EE Keeper, i reverted to the version before that and it works absolutely fine.

    Hi Gus!

    Yes I am on Windows 10, with a fresh install of both the BG games, on Steam.

    I believe I'm using the newest version of EEKeeper, version 1.0.4.0

    I am using the newest version of BG2ee, I am 100% sure of that, because I re-downloaded it again last night (I did a fresh install). I believe the newest version of BG2ee is 0.1.0.0.


    I'm not entirely sure what you mean by what you said last. When I was attempting to add items, that was on a new game on BG2ee. I have no BG2ee saves at the moment, so everything will be tried out on a new game.
    Just to be clear -

    - EEKeeper loads the saves
    - then I can go to the inventory tab
    - add *any* item
    - click save, and then EEKeeper crashes just before it saves.

    edit: just to make sure, I've literally just repeated everything this minute - made a new game, tried to add an item on EEKeeper etc. and exactly the same thing is happening.

    Hey Borek! Hmm, that's interesting! I'd prefer not to use an earlier version if this is possible to fix, but that is definitely something to remember for the future incase this isn't fixable.

    @Legend The newest BG2EE is version 2.3.67.3

    Does EEkeeper have permission to alter save files. I remember at one point my virus protection autoflagged EEKeeper as malware and I had to completely uninstall my malware protection to get it to work again. Did Windows 10 update for you recently? It may have reset security permissions.

    to be honest, I don't believe my Windows has updated recently.. but it MAY have and I've just forgotten about it. That being said, it works completely fine for BG1, so why would malware only be effecting it for BG2? My malware checker is very light/uninvasive anyway, so I don't reeeckon it would be the case. But hmm, will be definitely worth a try if all else fails!

    A number of others are experiencing the same difficulty, including myself. It is discussed in the latter part of this thread: https://forums.beamdog.com/discussion/16497/ee-keeper-updated-to-v1-0-4

    I tried some of the suggested fixes, but none of it worked. A fix to the latest version of EE Keeper will likely be required. Until then, rolling back to the previous version works just fine, as @Borek suggests.

    wow, that is a long thread! I'll have a quick look, but I suppose going back to a previous version is hardly a problem.

    Thank you for letting me know though!
