Creature and NPC name examples
The name that is entered in CLUAConsole:CreateCreature("") must be six characters or less. If the desired character has a name longer than that, only enter the first six letters. Note: Creating and killing some characters will prevent the game from completing correctly. Save the game before experimenting. Some examples include:

Flaming Fist MercenaryCLUAConsole:CreateCreature("Flame")
Ogre MageCLUAConsole:CreateCreature("Droth")
Flaming Fist wizardCLUAConsole:CreateCreature("Flamwiz")
Phoenix GuardCLUAConsole:CreateCreature("Pheogurd")
Greater BasiliskCLUAConsole:CreateCreature("GBasil")
Carrion CrawlerCLUAConsole:CreateCreature("Carrio")

Duplicating items
This trick will duplicate any item that can be "stacked" in the inventory. One of the best uses is to duplicate gems to create an unlimited source of gold. Place a potion of healing in one of the quick items slots. Open the inventory screen, replace it with a gem, then immediately return to the game screen. The image of the potion should still be in that slot, but the gem's name should appear on the help scroll if the pointer is left over that slot. Left click on the gem once, wait for the target cursor to disappear from your character, then left click the gem a second time. After the target cursor disappears again, return to the inventory screen. The number of gems in that slot should now be 65352 instead of 1. Do not stack any additional gems in that slot, or the CPU will reset the total to 20.
Note: This trick works with the original release of the game and may not function in patched versions.

View FMV sequences
Note: This procedure involves editing a game file; create a backup copy of the file before proceeding. Use a text editor to edit the "Baldur.ini" file in the game directory. Add the following lines under the "[Movies]" section to unlock all FMV sequences in the "Play Movie" option.


Extra time before attack
If you are resting and are interrupted by an encounter and do not have enough time to respond, press [Space] to pause game play. When the monsters attack, they will be stopped (as well as your party) until the game is resumed.

Enable blood and gore (German and other international versions)
Note: This procedure involves editing a game file; create a backup copy of the file before proceeding. Use a text editor to edit the "Baldur.ini" file in the game directory. Add the line "Memory Access=100".

Hidden comments
When you add an NPC to your party, repeatedly click on him or her. They will say things that are either serious or funny. For example, Khalid says "Click on someone your own size". Each NPC says four things, then return to addressing you normally.

Baldur's Gate Cheats

Back to top
Sleep free in Beregost, free potions and a reputation increase.
Across the street from the Red Sheaf Inn, NW of the smithy is a man in the house with a wagon out front. Introduce yourself and ask his name. he says don't abuse my trust and you can come and go as you like. Then you can sleep in his house for free and store you loot in his drawer.

I also had a happy accident that gave me 65,555 potions of healing! I was in the Ankheg hole with 6 people in my party and only 5 potions. We all needed one and the 5 were in one stack. I started with the leader and quickly drank one and passed them on. When I got to the last party member there was still a potion so I drank it. After I took a step and was encumbered. I looked to see the problem and found the potion I drank that shouldn't have existed was now 65,555 potions. I hauled out all I could and put them in Joias chest in friendly arms.Went back and loaded up for my journey.

I went back to the man north of the Ankheg hole (the one who lost his son) after I went to baulders gate. He said it was hard going without his son. The dialog choices allowed me to tell him I had too much money and carrying it was a burden. I gave him 100gp and thanked him for his help and I got a reputation increase.
