CTD upon entering Character Sheet/Inventory screen

edited May 2013 in Fixed
Hello, it seems whatever divine power is in charge of my luck decided it hates me, as now my BG:EE installation is messing with me. Whenever I enter the character screen or the Inventory screen, I get a full game crash. The error message reads:

There was an error. A crash report was saved to: C:\Users\User\Documents\Baldur's Gate - Enhanced Edition\crash\dump.2014.0008.dmp.

It's very unspecific. I've included all of the crash dumps I received so far in this post. All I did to this game was alter the baldur.ini file to contain the line that unlocks the console, never doing anything with it.

    @Fycadius thanks for the crash dump, I've forwarded it along.

    I'm getting this as well. Worked fine before I installed the latest update.

    It's been a full month and yet this problem persists. I assure you nothing about the situation has changed. My current patch is v1.0.2104 as of this day.

  • FycadiusFycadius Member Posts: 12
    I know this is thread necromancy but to hell with it. This problem STILL persists, even through the new patch.

  • FycadiusFycadius Member Posts: 12
    No I have not. I have the vanilla version of Baldur's Gate Enhanced, patched to the current version. The only modification I have made is to enable the command line from ingame.

    Thank you for responding again. I had a sinking feeling when this happened. We'll see what the devs can do.

    I've re-reported this to have the guys look at the crash dumps. However, this isn't widely reported, so I would guess it has something to do with your setup. What video card/chipset do you have? Have you updated to the latest drivers? You may also want to delete the game and re-install.

  • FycadiusFycadius Member Posts: 12
    According to the magnificence that is DxDiag, this is what my setup is: NVIDIA GeForce GTX 470/GeForce GTX 470 Chip (4049 MB approx. memory). Driver version (updated on 26/02/2013). I'll try uninstalling/reinstalling and post back when I'm done.

    can you attach the save file please? I'm not sure how to read the crash dumps but I can work with the crash itself.

    It's happening every time you enter the character sheet and the inventory still? There was an issue like that with an offhand weapon breaking and stats trying to be read out of it.

  • FycadiusFycadius Member Posts: 12
    Sure, here is every save folder I could salvage after the uninstallation process started. And yes, it happened on every save, at any point in the game after enabling the console.

  • SethDavisSethDavis Member Posts: 1,812
    hmmm, no crash on the beta, prototype or main code.

    could you attach you ini as well please?

  • FycadiusFycadius Member Posts: 12
    Baldur.ini is in My Documents/Baldur's Gate Enhanced Edition correct? It's the file with the gear on it?

  • SethDavisSethDavis Member Posts: 1,812
    ah, can't attach them here I guess. if you open it with notepad or something and copy out the contents maybe. Here's mine just in case it fixes your problem.

    I just saved what you gave me as the new text in the baldur.ini. The game is almost done reinstalling so I will inform you if it works or not.

  • SethDavisSethDavis Member Posts: 1,812
    good luck. I'll check yours as well

    The problem has finally been fixed. I can now open the character sheet/inventory without a CTD. Thank you very much everyone who helped out over this massive 1-month long issue.

  • SethDavisSethDavis Member Posts: 1,812
    sorry it took so long.

    watch out for Boo, he bites
