Baldur's Gate: Dark Alliance Command codes
Back to top
In the game, the limit is forty (mathematically) and laughably 13 after an easy playthrough. I found the instant 40-leveller, the event repetition paradox to repeat scheduled game events, but I have the biggest secret of all (unless others have found it haha). It's fairly simple really, as it follows the same paradox slightly for event repetition.
I'll *try* to keep it simple as I'm a trace autistic programmer... Ideally, unlock extreme mode and level to forty instantly as specified above within Black Forge (using invulnerability because it's vital in Extreme Mode at lower levels.
To expedite matters, follow the law of refinement by killing off any annoying proximate spiders, lure the giant mech near the southern save point and wipe off 90% of his health before saving this as the beta file that you import the alpha into. When you paradox, it should then only take one hit each time with minimal human input. Save an "alpha" file (the main post-level stat/skill point increase file).
A beta file should be saved to obviously maintain the an event window (save file) with the giant mech thing still alive).
I'll detail the sequence, as it's definitely worth trying this out!
Firstly, start the paradox as detailed in other people's posts (to save explanations), or immediately level to forty with the extreme giant mech hit (while at level 1) before getting to forty. You can do this at any level, so firstly level to forty instantly as above and put the points into wisdom (~33% with the points received), then save it as the new alpha file (the main one). Then cheat to reset the character to Lv20 and carry on with the normal paradox levelling as above, each time putting the points into wisdom. For speed, ONLY level from 20-24 importing the updated alpha file into the beta, killing the giant mech thing and then updating the progress into the alpha file. Once you've hit 24 (or any level really), exit to the menu and reload the beta before importing the updated alpha file. I'm not certain if this is clear to you all, but you can max everything out and have a GOD character, with 99% Wisdom (don't go any higher or it'll freeze), 150 armour, thousands of health and armour and crazy strength and carry weight. I use the female mage thing as she ends up stronger than the others but have the lv5 shock ball crap haha.
Thanks for listening, because it's a lot of fun to experiment with 'cheating without cheating! <img src="http://cdn.staticneo.com/neoassets/smileys/smile.gif" border=0 vspace=2 alt="" />

Baldur's Gate: Dark Alliance Tips
Back to top
When you're surrounded, try to get your back to the wall and into a narrow area where only a few enemies will be able to close in on you. If you can manage this, and have a shield, you'll be able to block enemy attacks and attack only when you see an opening, taking the enemy down one by one as necessary. Be wary of larger beasts however, as they may have explosive magic or knockdown attacks that ignore the player's block.
Works in both Dark Alliance games.
start in extrem with a new character and use the level wrap cheat and go to tower 3 and find a weapon Do Not Kill An Thing the use the level wrap cheat and go to ice cave 3 An kill the dragon it have'nt killed an thing you should get all the exp. you need to get to lvl 40
You can mess with the loading screen by moving the Right Analog stick.

This may get annoying, but in order to move faster, you can jump everywhere instead of walking. It will make the trip go about 1.5x faster.

The onyx sword is possibly the best sword in the game. What you need to do is get to the Black Forge in the Onyx Tower and beat that golem right before the Hall of Remembrance. You may need to have invulnerability if you are not experienced in the game or do not have good enough armor. It is a hard fight but the final result is worth it entirely.
You tired of the mags or spell casters in act II and III kicking your butt? Here's a helpful tip for if you get stuck in a room with them.
Get behind one of them where the rest are in front of it and dodge ITS spells but no one else's. If done right when the others fire at you some will hit the spell caster you backed away from and gives you a Person or Thing shield!
At the end of the cellar (near the sewer entrance), is a secret room visible on the map + screen. Jump on the nearby stack of barrels/objects and part of the wall should slide away, revealing a secret room.

Hold R2, L1, Triangle and Left on the D-Pad and then press start to open a cheat menu.
Have 2 players playing at the same time. You need to be in town for this. Then have one character drop all their stuff. Import the character that just dropped their items and they will have all the things that they just dropped but, it's also on the ground. Pick up the stuff sell the duplicates and save. You now have more money. Buy expensive items with your extra gold and repeat this cheat again. The more times you double yor items the more gold you get each time.
press and hold R2 L1 triangle and left on the whachamacallet (not the joystick's)and then press start. that will bring you to the cheat menu (invincibility and lvl warp) go to lvl warp at the start of the game and go to onix tower 3. (don't use any other cheats and turn ON invincibility) run through and go to the guy holding the onix sword. (you can pick up another weapon along the way but don't kill anything) kill the guy holding the onix sword and it will give you tons of exp but dont spend it. Just warp around sommore killing all the really big guys and still don't spend the exp. then when you're done press L1, R2, left thinggy, triangle, R3 and youre guy should be a lvl 20 with all the spells and one lvl on all his stats. now use all the exp you earned and voilla high lvl on everything!!!

While holding L1 + R2 + LEFT + TRIANGLE, press START during gameplay to enable a cheat menu.

Whenever you fight a big boss that gives you lots of experience or you find a real good item, save before you find it and then when you get whatever you want save it on a different file. Reload the frist one (before you got the item or experince) and then just import your guy from the second game (the one just after you got the item)
First buy the highest priced item you can afford. Save your game.(you must have two players to make this work) Import any player and give him or her the item. Now import the original player from the save you just made and give the item again to the second player. Once you have done this a couple of times give all the items to the player you wish to get the money and have him or her sell it. You can also use this trick for leveling up your player. Make a save after completing a task (killing the rats) but make sure its before you get the exp. points for it. Speak to the person who will give you the exp. points for the task and then once you have gained the points save on a diff save space DO NOT OVERWRITE THE FIRST DATA. Then reload the original save import from the second save and once agin speak to the person and get the points and then overwrite the second save and load from the first save repeat.

Start a new game in extreme mode. Bring up the cheat menu (R2+L1+triangle+left then hit start) turn on invulnerability and then level warp to the second to last towere level. Go down the stairs to the Black Forge, then walk east to the weapon wrack and pick up the weapon then kill the metal golem who will drop the onyx sword. In extreme mode, if you were level one you should now be level 40 . In other modes if you were level one you should be level 25 or so. Also in the tower levels on extreme mode there are many chests containing powerful goodies. Remember to keep invulnerability on.
this is really neat because you can hold a shield with the weapon first you buy the weapon *it has to be a new weapon* then you triple clik on it and he will be holding it with one Hand!!! pretty neat huh you can equip a shield and the weapon still has the same chance of critical Strike

Press and hold R2 + L1 + Left + Triangle and then tap R3 while in the game. If your character speaks, the code has been confirmed. You should now have a level 20 character with access to every feat, and level 1 feats on all class-dependent feats plus 75,000 gold pieces.
Choose 'new game' at the main menu, then hold R1 + R2 + L1 + L2 while the game loads. Alternately, beat the game on extreme difficulty.
You don't have to be in two player mode or in a town to duplicate items.You should be at a save point. 1. Save your game 2. Drop anything or everything you want to duplicate. 3. Import your character from the save in step 1. 4. Pick up the stuff from the ground. That is it.. I have done this in almost every level of the game where there is a save point. Works in one or two player games. Great way to share stuff with a friend in two player mode. Find someone who has finished the game and have them import their character into your new game, and give you their onyx sword
Beat the game on normal difficulty setting with any character to unlock The Gauntlet Mode. After defeating Gauntlet Mode you will open up the extreme difficulty level.
This is not really a cheat but this is what i did:
I used the following:
1. ring of strength + 15
2. ring of strength + 15
3. Amulet of strength + 15
This gives you at least +45 Strength
(450 pts) to carry.
So you can carry a complete house or so!!!
And my second config:
1. ring of constitution +15
2. ring of constitution +15
3. Amulet of dexterity +15
This gives you a lot hitpoints and additional Armorpoints.(As second config you can use whatever you like!)
The Cool thing is that Items that you already carry will NOT be dropped if you unequip the rings and amulet of strength. You will still carry them!!!!!
This means that you can get Something like This:
Carrying: 480/160 (480 of 160) !!!!!!
Now you normally are tripple Overwighted but it doesnt matter, you can still move, cast spells and fight!!!!!
So you only need to put the Rings of strength on again if you want to pick something up!!!!! For all other things (fighting...) i used the second config.
Works wonderfully if you need a LOT of potions and a Lot of HP too!!!!!!!!!
I know my English is not good at all, but i hope i could explain my trick to you
