    I haven't found this addressed anywhere, but are there plans to add the capability for mods or multiplayer to the console versions? I would love to be able to use the NPC Project mod on here, and it would be nice to be able to create more than one character for a single playthrough.

    Hello everyone. I'm encountering serious problems with my physical Nintendo Swith version. Since 4th chapter of BG1 EE game crashes frequently. At the beginning I thought that it happens only while saving game. Game crashed and corrupted save entry. After some tests it seems that there is greater chance that it will crash when overwriting existing save so I tried to play saving only on empty slots. Unfortunately game continuous to crash on locations changes (not only those with auto save) and other situations like exiting shop window. At this moment I'm unable to play much longer than 10 minutes without crash. The whole thing is extremely frustrating.

    Hi. I'm having exactly the same problem on Nintendo Switch Lite! I'm also in chapter 4 & the game crashes about every 2 on 3 times while I'm saving (and save file is deleted), or when I start or end a fight. There is always the same message"the software was closed because an error occurred". This makes the game unplayable. I've done everything from nintendo support list to solve this bug but nothing isn't working (I have deleted, reformat, shut down, and still it doesn't work). I can play all my other games on switch without any issues. This must be surley a bug from the game. I'm counting that Beamdog will solve this problem. Maybe this is something wrong with downloaded language pack? Did you use them?

    I'm using Polish Language Pack.

    Yeah. I've got the same Language Pack...

    Hey, maybe there's something connected with polish language dlc, because i have the same problem, and i use language pack from e-shop too.

    Just wanted to update my previous feedback. I uninstalled the game, and this time - I didn't download the language pack from e-shop. I started a new game, and was able to reach (for now) chapter 6 without any crashes. That is another fact that convinces me that there must be something wrong with language pack (or specifically polish dubbing) for Switch that makes game crash so much starting in chapter 4/5.

    Hello guys.

    Just loved going through my youth best game again.
    All positive feedback I agree with.

    I have one big issue. I thought that copping a letter in the journal would keep letter effectiveness...

    I lost ducal invitation and stupidly saved on the same spot for 6-8 hours in chapter 7.

    I read that there are no cheat possible to materialize items for xbox one.

    Is it going to change ? Will I have to go through all the chapter again or do I have another way to go in ducal palace ?

    Thank you very much

    This is my first time playing BG, and one of my characters shows the + sign but I can't figure out how to level her up. Playing on Xbox One-S

    @sifubear Sorry for the long wait.

    Open the radial menu (One of the triggers)
    Select character record from the radial menu
    There should be a hot button (I believe it's (y)) or you can navigate to the level up button in the character record menu)

    A note: the character record of the character that has the plus symbol will be the only one able to level up. The button will be greyed out for other characters.

    It's impossible to enter the palace if you don't have the invitation. And cheats are not available on console, so it's an unfortunate situation for you - if you don't have a previous save.

    I've checked if removing the language pack will help with existing saves. Unfortunately it seems that once the game has started to crash, this won't help.

    Have you posted the issue on Beamdog's bug tracker (https://beamdog.atlassian.net/servicedesk/customer/portal/)?

    That's extremely sad that tomorrow it will be four months when my save is unplayable. I really do not want to start the game one more. Besides there is no certainty that the game won't start to crash without the language pack.

    For me it also unfortunately doesn't work on existing saves played previously with dlc downloaded (they still crash), but it somehow works (no crash now up to almost the end of the game) on new save played 100% without language pack dlc. Maybe it's coincidence (for example - I previously played with different class and party and that too could have made a difference), but that's how it is in my case.
    I already contacted Beamdog support about crashing Switch version a month ago, and of course they said they "passed it through" - I really hope they are working on it.

    I removed the game and then installed it without the voice language pack. I've come back to my old save from chapter 3 which I used to play with polish voice language pack. At this moment I'm playing with polish interface but original voices. I've managed to finish chapter 4 and advance in chapter 5 without single crash.

    This didn't help with saves from chapter 4 which were suffering from the crash curse.

    I play the same way (polish text, english audio, no language pack dlc installed). Playing this way I was able to finish BG1 campaign without crashes and (for now) play another 15 hours into SoD with only single crash (which didn't came back later).

    I think that more or less confirms that (1) something is wrong with language pack dlc (or more specifically - polish language dubbing, (2) once the save is corrupted (and it gets this corruption somewhere in 4th chapter in BGEE) by this bug, there's no turning back - it will crash and the only fix is to go back to bug-free savegame.

    It's disappointing, going into a newly released console game, enjoying it but also finding a lot of bugs and reporting them, along with various suggestions to try to improve playability/user experience, and then seeing nothing for six months or more. I stopped reporting because it felt like it was all going into a black hole, there are so many issues both minor and major with the console release but I don't expect they will ever be fixed.

    Normally with games getting a port to a new platform, there's a period of rapid bug-fixing, like, it comes out because that's when it was scheduled but then the other bugs QA previously found and were in the process of being fixed get taken care of in the following weeks. Sometimes player feedback gets taken into account because you don't know how games will be received until they're in the public's hands.

    I guess when entering into this Beamdog EE world I was a newcomer and didn't yet know that a six month wait is nothing, and it's far more likely that 2.6 will come to PC before the console versions are touched again. NWN got some attention because of the online component, I understand that would be a higher priority, but it feels like there is really nothing being done with the IE console releases.

    I would interpret this as the games not selling well enough to justify any time spent on them, which is a little annoying as one of those few players but I suppose justified. Fixing bugs won't generate revenue, that's the reality of it. Especially now with the global pandemic, Beamdog has to focus on the most profitable path forward, and I'm sure it doesn't lie in the console ports of IE games.

    And I'm not entitled to any sort of patch or UI improvements or anything. I'm not owed anything. But it's still disappointing, to want a release to be great and see it languish.

    Everything involving the EE NPCs seems to crash the game on XBox One. Events involving Neera and Rassad both repeatedly crash the game. Neera’s event on travel after her stupid cut scene is forced, too, unlike taking Rasaad to the Heretic Temple.
