First, make your sorroundings pretty laggy. Cast a bunch of spells, goto a place with alot of people, or something like that. Next, save your game. Then,take a character and remove all potions in its pack except one. Now, while it is still laggy, drink the potion and pick it up, QUICK! The number that displays how many are in a stack will disappear. Now, make it laggy again and do it again. This time, the number will appear at about 665789. Make your characters line up with large spaces between them toward the direction of the nearest shop and sell the potions (dont line them up if you are in a shop; just sell em' and you vvvveeeerrrrrrryyyyy ******* rich!). The weight is extreme so do this and become richer than kings. Now buy everything good a shop has to sell like shadow armour!!!

Nice one for cheaters I guess... But if you want more money why don't you just use the in-game cheats to get it?I don't advise it though. It's much more rewarding when you gain it YOURSELF. Oh God, I sound like a paladin! Aaaaaah!!! :D (not that I have anything against paladins btw)

I found that there is nowt in the game which you actually need to cheat for. Given infintie time and typewriters, ten monkeys would eventually type out the entire works of shakespeare. Likewise, given enough time, you can kill enough gibberlings or xvarts to get enough money.
But if you do want to cheat, just get a couple of potions of master thievery, and sell/steal many rogue stones etc.

Cheats Suck :mad: but stargazer's got a point ;) If you're gonna cheat anyways, why bother going through this crap? Just do the cluaconsole thing. I believe it's midas?

Or how about the old gem in the guick slot routine. I fotget how it's done, but it would have yielded enough gold to buy everything in the game plus some. Hey, does anyone think this tip sounds like something Sylvus would have dreamed up?

I wouldn't know. I've only read his IWD walk-thru. Got stuck on some points ;)

Nah, both of them are tried and true cheats, I still remember them. ;)
I'm positive I wrote all about them either in the BG Encyclopaedia or my tips & tricks page. Both can be found here at SP, just look around a bit.

Well I knew this but then with 3 potions in the 3 quick item slots. Then change the left one with a gem... go to the normal screen and drink the potion a few times... same thing... 6000000 pearls or something
But I don't care, it sux! In the middle of the game you already have too much money.... and in the bgeinning it ain't fun playing with very good equipment....
