Forbidden spells

So I’m on a quest to have my KC learn all arcane spells in the game, but I’ve come upon a really nasty hurdle. I’ve come upon two spells that for some reason can’t be put into scrolls, those being Solipsism and Blackstaff. Now I saw that I could get the item code for Blackstaff scrolls, but I never found such for Solipsism. Can’t even use the “givespell” command as it’s not in the list. Anyone know how else I can get it besides levelling up? And are there any other spells that can’t be put into scrolls?

Blackstaff id# 541
Solipsism id# 1129

see Spells.2da

Blackstaff scroll (#541) resref “x2_it_sparscr801”
Solipsism scroll (#1129) resref < not defined >

see Des_Crft_Scroll.2da

ps. looks like someone should make a fix for Solipsism scroll …

Does that mean you’d tried it and it didn’t work?

uh, it didn’t work even before i tried it …

the potential good news is the fix is in, requiring changes to the following files:


plus adding the blueprint for the scroll.

I’ll be adding it to Nwn2Fixes after sorting out Reserved 2da ranges on the wiki,

– successfully scribed a Solipsism scroll
– successfully cast a Solipsism scroll on a goblin

edit: haven’t looked at Blackstaff (yet)

ps. I had no issues creating a Blackstaff scroll in the stock game …

Lemme try to make sense of what you said - you’re making a mod that would included fixes for this.

That doesn’t explain much to me.

Edit: Nevermind, I get it now. So where do I put those four files?

five files
- des_crft_scroll.2da
- des_crft_spells.2da
- iprp_spells.2da
- nwn2_icons.2DA
- x2_it_sparscr702.UTI

On my computer, I’d put them in

C:\Users\User\Documents\Neverwinter Nights 2\override\fix_Solipsism

breakdown of above:

C:\Users\User\Documents\Neverwinter Nights 2\ <- that’s called the “player folder” for Nwn2

C:\Users\User\Documents\Neverwinter Nights 2\override\ <- that’s the “override” folder for Nwn2

C:\Users\User\Documents\Neverwinter Nights 2\override\fix_Solipsism <- create this folder and put the 5 files there

I’m using windows7 so the path might be slightly different on your system.

Note that the \override folder is a global container that the game uses. This has consequences …

EDIT: Or, instead of any of that, download the .Zip from the github page and unzip it to your \Override

( there should never be files with identical filenames in \override or any of its subfolders )

So just the override folder.
