Baldur's Gate 2 Cheats

Cheats and hints for one of the best RPGs in recent years.

Open the Baldur.ini file with notepad, look for a heading 
called [Program Options]. Under this heading type:

Reveals the entire map. 

Heal Party:

When you have Debug Mode=1 in your baldur.ini file, you

harmful spell effects. 

Instant Kill:

When you have Debug Mode=1 in your baldur.ini file, you 
may use [CTRL] + Y to kill the person or monster the 
cursor is on. 

Other Cheats:

When you have Debug Mode=1 in your baldur.ini file, you

of the selected char (prev and next, respectively).

Heal and Jump:
With Debug Mode enabled, press Ctrl + R to heal a 
character, and Ctrl + J to jump to the mouse cursor 


Click the TCP/IP option, even if offline, to create and 
play six of your own characters. (Note: you'll miss out 
on a lot of quests, but it's a great way to replay the game.) 

Be picky when choosing quests. Be true to your alignment 
and don't bite off more than you can chew, or your 
reputation will suffer. 

The game is 100 percent playable and quite different if 
you opt to play as an evil character. For example, 
instead of freeing the slaves, you are charged with 
putting down their uprising. 

Stock up on Restoration spells when facing undead. 
Being "level drained" is a horrible way to go. Failing 
that, if you have Raise Dead spells let a level-drained 
character die (unless it's your character); once raised 
he'll be back to a normal level.
