"Maybe we can get Westley to put some warning signs for
the faint of heart on his posts when he is advertising mods this extreme?
I'm certain some poor gamers fainted on their keyboards." -- Mike
The Spell-50 mod extends a number of priest, druid and mage spell effects
to level fifty. Spells cast by friends and enemies alike are modified.
Basically, it's a mod for players who would like to see phenominal cosmic
spellcasting at higher levels. Contents:
Blatant Warning: This mod will change
the balance of power in the game in favor of spellcasters. Both your
high-level spellcasters and opposing high-level spellcasters (e.g., liches,
ToB enemies) will gain a major boost. You should seriously consider whether
you want to face a 25d8 Horrid Wilting and whether you will have fun in a
game where you can launch a 25d8 Horrid Wilting before you install this.
- A number of spells within the game have their
effects (damage, duration, etc.) linearly extended to 50th level.
Want more information (like a spell list)? Check out the Spell-50 documentation.
Installing The Mod
"Hoo boy. This is going to seriously shift the balance of power."
Installation checklist and instructions:
- You will not need to start a new game to take advantage of
the Spell-50 Mod.
- The Spell-50 mod (probably!) works with (and definitley works without)
The Darkest Day - ToB Compat Version.
Install TDD-ToB first if you want to use it.
- The Spell-50 mod works with (or without) all
other WeiDU mods.
See the Solaufein installation
instructions for details (and Mac installation instructions).
- The Spell-50 Mod does not require IEEP or any other
TeamBG utilities and it will not replace your existing DIALOG.TLK.

The EXE file above is a WinRAR self-extracting archive. Run it, and in the
Install to field put your BGII directory. That is normally:
C:\Program Files\Black Isle\BGII - SoA
If you do not like self-extracting EXEs, you can get a normal RAR version.
- Run the included Setup-Spell50.EXE program. Choose your
language and then choose which components to install. You may uninstall any
or all of them later.
- You may run Setup-Spell50.EXE again to uninstall any
component that you have already installed. For example, you might try out
the harder battles and then uninstall them later if you do not like them.
Comments on the Spell-50 Mod:
- I don't see this as as the right way to go about it.
- I am a hardened BG player. I got BGI in 1998 when it came out. I
pre-ordered BGII half a year before it was out. This rules.
- Feel free to submit yours.
