Feature changes

  • Quicksaves now alternate between 1 and the MaxQuickSaveAmount setting in config.lcl which by default is at 2 but which can be increased to any number if you want a number of sequential quicksaves. To increase the setting – open the file config.lcl in the folder where you installed Divine Divinity, and add the line MaxQuickSaveAmount # with # being the maximum amount of quicksaves you want.
  • Boss monsters and monsters have become easier on the “easy level”. Damage done by boss monsters on normal level has been reduced a bit
  • Included several optimizations that make the game more responsive
  • Added error logging in error.txt file
  • Switched from jpg to png for screenshots
  • Prevent quicksaving when you are dead
  • Game gives warning when color depth is not 16 bit since this seems to cause a lot of problems on some systems.
  • Saving now first happens to a temporary folder and only when it is completely successful does it remove the previous savegame that is being overwritten (if there is one)


  • Internationalized game so that the same executable patches work on different language versions from now on. (There is still a difference between Unicode and non Unicode versions however)
  • Fixed bug which would cause negative resistances if you unequipped an item which gave you a boost to magical barrier without actually having learnt the skill.
  • Fixed bug where you would consistently get increasing resistances if you learned the resist magic skill and saved/load all the time, eventually leading up to corruption.
  • Autofix for corrupted resistances.
  • Fixed bug which would cause a crash when highlighting a npc at the moment you get teleported.
  • Font fixes for French letters
  • Fixed bug which would cause the game to crash if a leadershipped creature would fight at a certain distance from the player
  • Fixed bug which could cause occasional crashes when loading partymembers
  • Got rid of bug which would case maps not to switch when a partymember was occupied.
  • Partymembers now defend themselves and they do not clear the shroud anymore.
  • Rare problem leading up to crashes during mapswitches is now solved
  • Fixed memory leak in scrying scenes
  • Solved “Verdistis” slowdown problem
