Introducing the awesome little
utility that will allow you to (when you follow the instructions in the
README.TXT) create custom inventory icon graphics for your custom
items. (Hmmm...a Throwing Dagger that looks like a porkchop! Where's

Since we are still waiting on the BAM Workshop to be able to do even
more with the graphics, this little utility can make custom items even
Also introducing the greatly
anticipated Store Override Editor! (See the third file available for
download below.) This editor will allow you to manipulate the stock and
prices of stores/shops/inns/temples. This is an excellent utility for
embedding your favorite custom items actually inside your BG adventure. Have fun using it!
You will need to extract *.STO files from "GUI.BIF" using the new "Biffstripper v2.0.0".
We also have the Item Text
Maker! (See the second file available for download below.) With this
editor, not only can you add descriptions to your custom item override
files, you can also EXPORT and IMPORT these items so that you can share

even create NEW items by renaming the file before opening it in the
If a NEW item is created, you have four easy ways to get that item into the game:
- Use the MANUAL ITEM CODE ENTRY option in the Character Editor.
- Use the CLUAConsole:CreateItem("XXXX##") function.
- Add the NEW item to the item data file included with my Character and Creature Editors.
- Edit a store/shop/inn so that it sells the NEW item (Shop Overrides Editor coming soon).
