Cult of the eyeless door bug

Android user here. I just finished killing the beholder at the end of the cult of the eyeless chain. I walked up the stairs to exit but the door is locked and won't open.

I searched for answers but most people just say jiggle the door or wait. Neither work. Now I'm stuck because you can't exit the way you came in

What can I do

If you need help fixing this problem please upload your save file here and I will look at it. MAKE SURE TO TAG ME BY TYPING @Tresset SO THAT I WILL KNOW ABOUT YOU!!!

If you have access to the console, this issue can be fixed by entering the following code (you can copy/paste it directly into your game):

C:SetGlobal("OpenSecretDoor","AR0202",1)

    Forgive me if this is a stupid question but did you make sure to use the rift device to kill the beholder? The 'completion' of that area is to assemble both halves of the rift device and use it to kill the last beholder, thus depleting the device.

    Some invisible/illusion doors can take forever to reveal especially for low intelligence characters, detect illusion if you can. If it is revealed you have to have the complete rift device to open the door.

    I did use the Rift Device to kill the beholder but thank you.

    The door is revealed, but it won't unlock. I read that it is supposed to open on its own when you approach it but it isn't doing that. As I told dunbar, I did complete and use the rift device

    If the doorway is highlighted purple and you have the rift device in your inventory, then it must be some sort of bug.

    Agreed. Screenshots attached in case anyone is wondering

    Yep, seems like a bug.
    Is the device in your nik character’s inventory? Could be that the device needs to be held by someone next to the door. I don’t know, just throwing stuff out there. Let us know though if you figure it out, we may have to deal with the same thing one day.

    Activate the console and Ctrl+J to teleport your party.

    Haha I appreciate it. I thought the same thing. I moved the device to each character and tried.

    I also tried dropping it on the ground, dropping it in the room where the other half was hidden, casting knock on the door, resting, reloading, giving the item to a party member then dropping them and reading them, turning party ai on and hoping they figure it out, and casting random spells at the door. I wish I had dimension door or something to try to teleport to the other side

    Playing on an iphone by the way
  • TressetTresset Member, Moderator Posts: 8,236
    @jashim I have fixed your save file so that the door should open as soon as you load it. Just watch out, a group of shadows seems to have spawned right on the other side. Enjoy the rest of your game!

    Thank you Tresset, much appreciated!
    A follow up question if I may. I have changed the filename to end .bg2save and used files on my iphone to open with BG2. However when i go to the game and choose Load game it is not in the saved game list? The phone sees the file as belonging to that app as it gives it the BG2 icon. Any ideas?? Thanks again. Jashim.
  • jashimjashim Member Posts: 4
    Nevermind! I opened the zip and then just zipped the 2 files needed (.gam and .sav) then changed the zip file to .bg2save - and now all is working! Many thanks Tresset!
