Hello everyone! This is long so bear with me.
So for a while now, I've been having a problem with BG2EE. Everything is merrily working well for a long time, then all of a sudden I'll go to reload a recent save and find the game will crash upon opening it. All my recent saves from that time period do the same, but if I go back to an old save (like for instance the Chapter 2 start save) it loads fine. There doesn't seem to be any rhyme or reason to when this happens - no specific location or time period that I can discern. If I delete the sav file the game loads fine - except I then have to deal with a world that thinks I haven't been anywhere before which is super annoying and sometimes game-breaking.
These issues have only started happening since I've started using mods. I've played BG2 more times than I can count, and now find it super boring to play the vanilla game. I really only want to play with mods, so that it adds new npcs/quests/experiences to the game. I tried using beamdog to verify my game and basically reset it to vanilla mode. Once I did that, I could open my save that previously crashed no problem, which leads me to believe the problem is with one of my mods.
I could delete my mods one by one, try to load the save after each one, and see if I can find the problem that way. But I don't want to do that if I don't have to because A) I have a long list of mods installed and it'll be a pain in the butt, and B] once I delete a mod I'm actively using in my current game, I can't just reinstall it and pick up where I left off, I'll have to restart. And I don't want to restart because I am having a grand time in my current game.
SO! Basically I am looking for a shortcut to find the problem without deleting everything. Has anyone had this problem before and worked out which mod is causing it? Has anyone heard of anything like this before? Has this been reported as an issue before? Or am I the first to come across this problem?
TL;DR - I like mods. Mods are corrupting my save. I am looking for a shortcut to solve the problem. Anyone have this problem before?
