SOA XP cap in BG2EE

Hey all.

Is there a way to re-impose the original SOA's XP cap (no TOB installed) in Baldur's Gate II: Enhanced Edition? I don't want to necessarily be super overleveled for the end of the game.

    Low-tech, you can simply opt not to level up once you exceed the relevant value (2.95 million).

    You can lower the XP cap by changing one value in STARTARE.2da - but that seems to also affect ToB. Despite that file having another set of values that appear to correspond to the ToB campaign. I don't think there's a way to decouple the two experience caps in the EE.

    I don't think I could handle not clicking that Level Up button, LOL.

    I'll edit the 2da, not planning on doing TOB any time soon anyway. Is the value something intuitive?

    The value you're looking to tweak is START_XP_CAP. Standard value 8000000, original SoA value 2950000. Pretty intuitive in my view.

    The non-intuitive part is which file it's buried in - XPCAP.2da is something else, setting class-dependent limits that apply across all campaigns under the program's umbrella
