Recently I has been trying LOB difficulty with my custom team, but I'm facing a serious problem with dismissing and re-recruiting my team members. The problem is stated as follows:
First dismiss one of my member, and then save the game, and then reload the previously saved game, and then recruit the dismissed member again, and then the re-recruited member will level up to 14 LV.
This is prettly annoying, because I have finished most of the main plots, and just getting started to shoot out these NPC tasks, such as Neera's, Dorn's etc, which will force you recruiting them.
I have tested this bug with the Steam version and the GOG version, and both appear the same problem, and then the same with both the *BG1EE* and *BG2EE*, so I just post the thread under the General Discussion block.
I wonder if anyone who play with their created team has encountered the same problem, if someone had already discussed this issue and had found a solution, please leave a note. And, if somebody had reported a bug on the bug reporting system, it's great, if not then I appeal deeply for someone, who is familiar with the system, to test and report a bug on the system for me, because I have tried and failed, it's just too complicated for me. Now we all know that developers is currently working on a 2.5 patch, if they have our report, then there's great chance the problem being solved before their future release. If somebody has done so, please leave a note. Besides, I haven't got a chance to install the newly released 2.5 patch tester beta, because I haven't finished my original game yet, I just don't want to spoil my original settings(even without taking the NPC's task). If there's somebody has played with the tester, and found out the previously mentioned problem being fixed, please leave a note.
Thanks all your guys.
PS: We all know that if we create a party with *BG2EE*, once you dismissed your member, which I mean truly, you can never find them back(also I think this is another problem, but won't be discussion under the current thread) ,
if you want to test my issue with *BG2EE*, here is my tip that will help you avoid the above problem, if you still don't know. The method is: just get your team enter a different area, such as hotel, house whatever, and then make one of your member walk far away from you, and then dismiss him, and then quickly get outside, to recruit him back, just enter the area again, and then talk to him.
