BG1 Opcodes


#0 (0x0) Stat: AC vs. Damage Type Modifier Variants: IWD2
Parameter #1: AC Modifier
Parameter #2: Type
Description:
Applies the modifier value specified by the AC Modifier field to the category specified by the Type field.

Known values for Type are:
  • 0 ⟶ All
  • 1 ⟶ Crushing
  • 2 ⟶ Missile
  • 4 ⟶ Piercing
  • 8 ⟶ Slashing
  • 16 ⟶ Base AC setting
    • Sets the targets AC to the value specified by the AC Modifier field. If the targets AC is already AC Modifier or below, this effect will do nothing.

Each modifier type to AC from this opcode is capped to the range [-20,20]. Each AC type total is capped to the range [-32768,32767].

Note: IWD1 and PST use a slightly different version. The “Base AC” sets to field - 1 instead.
IWD2 uses different parameters altogether.
Note:

#1 (0x1) Stat: Attacks Per Round Modifier Variants: BGEE
Parameter #1: Key Modifier
Parameter #2: Type
Description:
Alters a characters Attacks per Round, by changing the Key by the modifier value specified by the 'Key Value' field, in the style specified by 'Type' field.
Key Attacks per Round
0 0
1 1
2 2
3 3
4 4
5 5
6 0.5
7 1.5
8 2.5
9 3.5
10 4.5


Known values for 'Type' are:
0 Cumulative Modifier -> Key = Key + 'Key Modifier' value
1 Flat Value Modifier -> Key = 'Key Modifier' value
2 Percentage Modifier -> Key = (Key * 'Key Modifier' value) / 100
3 Cumulative Modifier -> Same as 0
Info: When this opcode is stacked, the values of the Key Modifier are stacked, not the number of attacks.
Note: IWD1 treats all keys above 5 as 5. PST does not support Type 3, while BG(2)EE uses it differently.
Important: Timing Modes 1/4/7 alters the creature's base APR stat, leaving behind no removable effect.

#2 (0x2) Cure: Sleep
Parameter #1: Irrelevant
Parameter #2: Irrelevant
Description:
Removes opcode #39 effects and the STATE_SLEEPING flag from the targeted creature(s).
This effect ignores durations attributed to it.
Note: Does not remove the STATE_HELPLESS flag.
Note: At least in EEs, it can remove opcode #177 effects targeting an EFF with opcode #39. Does not always work when delayed.

#3 (0x3) State: Berserking Variants: IWD1
Parameter #1: Irrelevant
Parameter #2: Type
Description:
Applies the berserk effect to the targeted creature(s) in the style specified by the Type field.
Target will uncontrollably attack enemies if any are in view, and will occasionally attack neutral creatures.
Known values for Type are:
  • 0 ⟶ Default/In Combat: only berserk while in combat.
  • 1 ⟶ Constant: always berserk, maintains BERSERK_ALWAYS_ACTIVE (only in EEs).
  • 2 ⟶ Blood Rage: doesn't exist in EE's, values 2+ function the same as 0.

This opcode sets the STATE_BERSERK flag.

Note: Being “in combat” is reliant upon the presence of visible, non-sleeping enemies, but they will attack anyone they can see (including sleeping creatures), ally, neutral, or enemy, without preference (beyond whom is closer).
Info: STATE_BERSERK specs:
  • Grants a +2 bonus to THAC0 and Damage.
  • While "in combat" or "Constant":
    • Creature is unseletectable, Inventory is disabled.
    • The creature's AI scripts are disabled.
    • The creature will randomly execute action ~ AttackReevaluate([ANYONE],15) (or similar, the exact attack action is unknown).
    • Disables Saving while affecting a Party Member (Displayed message: "You do not control all your Party Members")
Note:
  • Forces creature(s) to use a melee weapon if possible.
    • If a certain creature is equipped with a Cursed ranged weapon, this opcode will not force it to switch to a melee weapon.
Note: This effect only affects party members (this is not true for EE games, it works fine on non-party creatures.)
Note: The second paragraph hasn’t been verified for PST and BG1 yet, but likely holds.
Important: Used with Timing Modes 1/4/7 results in setting STATE_BERSERK when it triggers (and using its default behavior), rather than attaching a removable effect with selected behavior.
Note: “Morale Failure: Berserk” does NOT use this or any of the other berserk opcodes, nor does it set STATE_BERSERK.

#4 (0x4) Cure: Berserking
Parameter #1: Irrelevant
Parameter #2: Irrelevant
Description:
Removes opcode #3 effects and STATE_BERSERK from the targeted creature(s). Does not remove opcode #245, opcode #246 and opcode #247 effects.
This effect ignores durations attributed to it.
Important: Both parameters should be 0 (zero).
Note: At least in BG2 and EEs, this effect only affects player characters.
Note: At least in BG2 and EEs, this effect can remove opcode #177 effects targeting an EFF with opcode #3.

#5 (0x5) Charm: Charm Specific Creature Variants: IWD1 IWD2 PST
Parameter #1: General Type
Parameter #2: Charm Type
Description:
Charms the targeted creature(s) according to value in the Charm Type field, if the target is matched by the value in the General Type field. Values for General Type are from GENERAL.IDS.

#6 (0x6) Stat: Charisma Modifier Variants: IWD1 PST
Parameter #1: Statistic Modifier
Parameter #2: Type
Description:
Applies the modifier value specified by the Statistic Modifier field in the style specified by the Type field.
Known values for Type are:
  • 0 ⟶ Cumulative Modifier: Charisma = Charisma + 'Statistic Modifier' value
  • 1 ⟶ Flat Value Modifier: Charisma = 'Statistic Modifier' value
  • 2 ⟶ Percentage Modifier: Charisma = (Charisma * 'Statistic Modifier' value) / 100

Statistic Modifier can be positive or negative.

The effect modifies CHR.
Info: All games but EEs:
  • With a Timing Modes of Permanent or Delayed, if Type = 0 and Statistic Modifier is positive, the statistic will alter and remain shown in white text, and a message 'Charisma raised permanently' will be shown.
  • With a Timing Modes of Permanent or Delayed, if Type is 1 or 2, or Statistic Modifier is negative, the statistic will alter and remain shown in white text, though no message is shown.
  • With all other Timing Modes, the statistic will alter and be shown in red text.
On EEs:
  • There's no feedback message about stat being raised permanently in the EE's – it must be done separately with opcode #139.
  • The opcode itself provides no coloring anymore (it's been externalized through "UI.menu")
    • An effective value > base value ⟶ green.
    • An effective value < base value ⟶ red.
    • An effective value = base value ⟶ white/default.
Important: With Timing Modes 1/4/7, the creature's base Charisma is altered, leaving behind no removable effect.
Info: Final values are capped to the bound range (0,25) in game (40 in IWD2).

Warning: Other values crash immediately or when opening or manipulating Inventory.
Info:
  • Each Item Type has 7 slots/locations, corresponding to a different set of Palette indexes that they will replace.
  • Near Infinity lists them as Grey, Cyan/Teal, Magenta/Pink, Yellow, Red, Blue, and Green.
    While these colors are arbitrary, they best represent the palette used in animation/paperdoll BAMs by default (before being recolored), so you can look at the BAM file and know which colors will be replaced.
  • 0=Grey, 1=Cyan, 2=Magenta, 3=Yellow, 4=Red, 5=Blue, 6=Green.
    +16 for weapons, +32 for shields, +48 for helmets.
  • The names already listed for some of these locations in IESDP are accurate, as they correspond to their general use in the vanilla game, but all 7 slots can be used for each item, provided their BAM file makes use of them.
  • Palette indexes will be replaced by the gradient specified for those locations:
    • Index 0–3 are reserved for Transparency and Shadows, they are not replaced.
    • Index 4–15: Grey

#9 (0x9) Colour: Glow Pulse Variants: IWD1 PST BG2
Parameter #1: RGB Colour
Parameter #2: Location and Speed
Description:
Pulses the area specified by the 'Location and Speed' field, at the rate specified by the 'Location and Speed' field, with the colour specified by the 'RGB Colour' field.

#10 (0xA) Stat: Constitution Modifier Variants: IWD1 PST
Parameter #1: Statistic Modifier
Parameter #2: Type
Description:
Applies the modifier value specified by the Statistic Modifier field in the style specified by the Type field.
Known values for Type are:
  • 0 ⟶ Cumulative Modifier: Constitution = Constitution + 'Statistic Modifier' value
  • 1 ⟶ Flat Value Modifier: Constitution = 'Statistic Modifier' value
  • 2 ⟶ Percentage Modifier: Constitution = (Constitution * 'Statistic Modifier' value) / 100

Statistic Modifier can be positive or negative.

The effect modifies CON.
Info: All games but EEs:
  • With a Timing Modes of Permanent or Delayed, if Type = 0 and Statistic Modifier is positive, the statistic will alter and remain shown in white text, and a message 'Constitution raised permanently' will be shown.
  • With a Timing Modes of Permanent or Delayed, if Type is 1 or 2, or Statistic Modifier is negative, the statistic will alter and remain shown in white text, though no message is shown.
  • With all other Timing Modes, the statistic will alter and be shown in red text.
On EEs:
  • There's no feedback message about stat being raised permanently in the EE's – it must be done separately with opcode #139.
  • The opcode itself provides no coloring anymore (it's been externalized through "UI.menu")
    • An effective value > base value ⟶ green.
    • An effective value < base value ⟶ red.
    • An effective value = base value ⟶ white/default.
Important: With Timing Modes 1/4/7, the creature's base Constitution is altered, leaving behind no removable effect.
Info: Final values are capped to the bound range (0,25) in game (40 in IWD2).

#11 (0xB) Cure: Poison
Parameter #1: Irrelevant
Parameter #2: Irrelevant
Description:
Removes opcode #25 poison effects and STATE_POISONED from the targeted creature(s).

The Dice values can be used to inflict varying damage amounts - e.g. 2d6 would do 2-12 damage (Damage type is still specified by the 'Type' value).
If 'Damage Amount' and the Dice values are both non-zero, the total damage inflicted is: 'Damage Amount' + Dice value.
'Damage Amount' can be positive or negative (though the damage sound will play in either case).

Note: ‘Stunning’ damage does not stun the target. Stunning damage cannot kill a creature, creatures are reduced to 1 HP and are knocked unconscious.
Warning: Using ‘Magic Fire’ as a damage type will result the game to crash if the damage kills the target.

#13 (0xD) Death: Instant Death Variants: IWD1 PST BG2

Temporarily removes the colouring indicating frozen_death from the targeted creature(s), but does not remove the frozen_death state itself.

#15 (0xF) Stat: Dexterity Modifier Variants: IWD1 IWD2 PST
Parameter #1: Statistic Modifier
Parameter #2: Type
Description:
Applies the modifier value specified by the Statistic Modifier field in the style specified by the Type field.
Known values for Type are:
  • 0 ⟶ Cumulative Modifier: Dexterity = Dexterity + 'Statistic Modifier' value
  • 1 ⟶ Flat Value Modifier: Dexterity = 'Statistic Modifier' value
  • 2 ⟶ Percentage Modifier: Dexterity = (Dexterity * 'Statistic Modifier' value) / 100
  • 3 ⟶ Cat's Grace (EE only)

Statistic Modifier can be positive or negative.

The effect modifies DEX.
Info: All games but EEs:
  • With a Timing Modes of Permanent or Delayed, if Type is 0 and Statistic Modifier is positive, the statistic will alter and remain shown in white text, and a message 'Dexterity raised permanently' will be shown.
  • With a Timing Modes of Permanent or Delayed, if Type is 1 or 2, or Statistic Modifier is negative, the statistic will alter and remain shown in white text, though no message is shown.
  • With all other Timing Modes, the statistic will alter and be shown in red text.
On EEs:
  • There's no feedback message about stat being raised permanently in the EE's – it must be done separately with opcode #139.
  • The opcode itself provides no coloring anymore (it's been externalized through "UI.menu")
    • An effective value > base value ⟶ green.
    • An effective value < base value ⟶ red.
    • An effective value = base value ⟶ white/default.
Info: When Type=3:
  • Statistic Modifier is unused: it uses the value listed in CLSSPLAB.2da for the creature's base class, or defaults to 1 if the file isn't present (it only exists by default in IWDEE).
  • A single instance of this opcode (using Type=3) cannot raise Dexterity above 20 (hardcoded), but multiple instances of it can.
    • This is because it only checks the limit against the creature's base score, not its effective score.
  • Like the other modes, applying the effect with Timing Mode 1 will affect the creature's base stat, leaving no removable effect.
  • Once applied to a creature, Statistic Modifier will store the exact DEX increase granted (only useful for lookup/editing through EEkeeper/NI).
  • When you apply this effect in an External EFF, (via op177 / op283):
    • Parameter1 in the EFF will determine the exact Dexterity increase (so it must be set manually, and ignores any limit).
Important: With Timing Modes 1/4/7, the creature's base Dexterity is altered, leaving behind no removable effect.
Info: Final values are capped to the bound range (0,25) in game (40 in IWD2).

#16 (0x10) State: Haste Variants: IWD1
Parameter #1: Irrelevant
Parameter #2: Type
Description:
Applies the Haste effect, in the style specified by the Type value.
Known values for Type are:
  • 0 ⟶ Normal Haste – double the movement rate and grants an additional Attack Per Round (APR), rounded down (capped at 6)
  • 1 ⟶ Improved Haste – double the movement rate and doubles APR (capped at 10)
  • 2 ⟶ Weak Haste – Speed haste without attack bonuses, round APR up (capped at 5)


All of them set STATE_HASTED. Improved/Weak function by setting an additional STAT value, which modifies the behavior of STATE_HASTED:

The Normal and Improved haste types grant a -2 initiative (Weapon Speed) bonus. All types:

Info: This effect will cancel out the slow opcode.
Warning: BG1 only supports haste type 0.

This opcode will set the STATE_HASTED flag and nothing else when applied with Timing Mode 1, and cannot be removed within the game by any means, only suppressed by Slow.
This only works when applying Normal/Improved haste (there’s no difference, since the STAT for Improved haste doesn’t get set this way), Weak haste does not do anything with Timing Mode 1.

#17 (0x11) HP: Current HP Modifier Variants: BG2 IWD2
Parameter #1: Statistic Modifier
Parameter #2: Type
Description:
Applies the modifier value specified by the 'Statistic Modifier' field in the style specified by the 'Type' field.
Known values for 'Type' are:
  • 0 ⟶ Cumulative Modifier: HP = HP + 'Statistic Modifier' value
  • 1 ⟶ Flat Value Modifier: HP = 'Statistic Modifier' value
  • 2 ⟶ Percentage Modifier: HP = (HP * 'Statistic Modifier' value) / 100


'Statistic Modifier' can be positive or negative.
Info: If ‘Statistic Modifier’ and the Dice values are both non-zero, the total HP change is: ‘Statistic Modifier’ + Dice value.
Note: Unlike opcode #12, this opcode does not apply any death effect (opcode #13) to the creature if it reduces their hit points to zero or less. The creature will remain in a bugged state (no HP but not dead) until they take further damage, or the game is saved & reloaded, at which point they will die properly.

#18 (0x12) HP: Maximum HP Modifier
Parameter #1: Statistic Modifier
Parameter #2: Type
Special: Mode
Description:
Applies the modifier value specified by the Statistic Modifier field in the style specified by the Type field.
Known values for Type are:
  • 0 ⟶ Cumulative Modifier: HP = HP + 'Statistic Modifier' value (affects current and max HP)
  • 1 ⟶ Flat Value Modifier: HP = 'Statistic Modifier' value (affects current and max HP)
  • 2 ⟶ Percentage Modifier: HP = (HP * 'Statistic Modifier' value) / 100 (affects current and max HP)
  • 3 ⟶ As 0 (does not affect current HP)
  • 4 ⟶ As 1 (does not affect current HP)
  • 5 ⟶ As 2 (does not affect current HP)
  • 6 ⟶ Non-cumulative Modifier: HP = HP + 'Statistic Modifier' value (affects current and max HP) (EE only...?)


Statistic Modifier can be positive or negative.

Known values for Mode are:
  • 0 ⟶ Normal: Effect functions as dictated by the Type field.
  • 1 ⟶ Do not update current HP.
    • This value is set automatically once the effect has been initially processed on a creature.
    • For normal operation, the special field MUST be zero.
Info: Type=6: This mode is applied by opcode #12 with either Special BIT3 or BIT4 (Drain to max HP), blocking further effects with those BITs from granting additional HP, but still allow them to deal damage.
(This might change in v2.6, given the overhaul to the damage flags involved with it, as currently it further blocks both the Current and Maximum HP gain, when it should only block further Maximum HP gain.)
Note: For non-permanent timing modes of Type 2 or 5 use the base maximum HP value, and therefore override other Type 2 or 5 modifiers.
Note: If Statistic Modifier and the Dice values are both non-zero, the total HP change is: 'Statistic Modifier' + Dice value.
Note:
  • Maximum HP cannot be reduced below a creature's level/HD (average level rounded up for multiclasses).
  • It is still able to reduce current HP below the creature's level/HD, and has the same bugged death as opcode #17 if it reduces a creature to zero or less HP.
Warning: The following can be considered bugs, though they may be internally necessary, so it could also be seen as a matter of DO NOT USE in this way.
  • When applied in spells/items, this effect, and all other existing op18 effects on the creature have their Statistic Modifier value increased by their dice value (rerolled):
    • Apply op18: +10d1, on CRE:
      This effect p1 = 20 (10d1 + 10d1), total = +20
    • Apply op18: +5d1, on CRE:
      This effect p1 = 10 (5d1 + 5d1).
      Previous effect p1 now = 30 (20 + 10d1), total = +40
    • Apply op18: +10d1, on CRE:
      This effect p1 = 20 (10d1 + 10d1).
      First effect p1 now = 40 (30 + 10d1).
      Second effect p1 now = 15 (10 + 5d1), total = +75
    • Apply op18: +1d1, on CRE:
      This effect p1 = 2 (1d1 + 1d1).
      First effect p1 now = 50 (40 + 10d1).
      Second effect p1 now = 20 (15 + 5d1).
      Third effect p1 now = 30 (20 + 10d1), total = +102
    • Avoid using the dice fields in spells/items.
  • When applied in external EFFs:
    • Dice Values are rerolled if you save/reload while the effect is still active.
    • Avoid using the dice fields in external EFFs.
  • When applied in external EFFs:
    • Current Hit Points are increased by twice the specified amount, plus the cumulative total of all other op18 effects applied through external EFFs currently active on the creature. Maximum Hit Points are increased as normal.
    • Apply EFF with p1=10, p2=0, Current HP: +20, Maximum HP: +10
    • Apply it again before the previous expires: Current HP: +30, Maximum HP: +10
    • Apply it again before either previous expires: Current HP: +40, Maximum HP: +10
    • Avoid using the "Update current HP" modes in external EFFs.
    • This works similar to using the dice fields in items/spells, except it affects Current Hit Points instead of Maximum. Though since Current Hit Point modifiers don't leave any effect behind, cannot actually verify that's how the mechanic works.

#19 (0x13) Stat: Intelligence Modifier Variants: IWD1
Parameter #1: Statistic Modifier
Parameter #2: Type
Description:
Applies the modifier value specified by the Statistic Modifier field in the style specified by the Type field.
Known values for Type are:
  • 0 ⟶ Cumulative Modifier: Intelligence = Intelligence + 'Statistic Modifier' value
  • 1 ⟶ Flat Value Modifier: Intelligence = 'Statistic Modifier' value
  • 2 ⟶ Percentage Modifier: Intelligence = (Intelligence * 'Statistic Modifier' value) / 100

Statistic Modifier can be positive or negative.

The effect modifies INT.
Info: All games but EEs:
  • With a Timing Modes of Permanent or Delayed, if Type is 0 and Statistic Modifier is positive, the statistic will alter and remain shown in white text, and a message 'Intelligence raised permanently' will be shown.
  • With a Timing Modes of Permanent or Delayed, if Type is 1 or 2, or Statistic Modifier is negative, the statistic will alter and remain shown in white text, though no message is shown.
  • With all other Timing Modes, the statistic will alter and be shown in red text.
On EEs:
  • There's no feedback message about stat being raised permanently in the EE's – it must be done separately with opcode #139.
  • The opcode itself provides no coloring anymore (it's been externalized through "UI.menu")
    • An effective value > base value ⟶ green.
    • An effective value < base value ⟶ red.
    • An effective value = base value ⟶ white/default.
Important: With Timing Modes 1/4/7, the creature's base Intelligence is altered, leaving behind no removable effect.
Info: Final values are capped to the bound range (0,25) in game (40 in IWD2).

#20 (0x14) State: Invisibility Variants: IWD1 IWD2 PST BG2
Parameter #1: Irrelevant
Parameter #2: Type
Description:
Applies the invisibility effect, in the style specified by the 'Type' value.
Known values for 'Type' are :
0 Normal Invisibility -> affected creature makes the first attack with +4
1 Improved Invisibility -> affected creature stays invisible after attack
Note: ‘Improved Invisibility’ does not provide saving throw bonuses.
Note: ‘Improved Invisibility’ lingers after the duration is spent and works permanently if used as a ‘While Equipped’ effect.

#21 (0x15) Stat: Lore Modifier Variants: IWD2
Parameter #1: Statistic Modifier
Parameter #2: Type
Description:
Applies the modifier value specified by the Statistic Modifier field in the style specified by the Type field.
Known values for Type are:
  • 0 ⟶ Cumulative Modifier: Lore = Lore + 'Statistic Modifier' value
  • 1 ⟶ Flat Value Modifier: Lore = 'Statistic Modifier' value
  • 2 ⟶ Percentage Modifier: Lore = (Lore * 'Statistic Modifier' value) / 100

Statistic Modifier can be positive or negative.

The effect modifies LORE.
Warning: This effect does not work with Timing Mode 1.

#22 (0x16) Stat: Cumulative Luck Bonus Variants: IWD1 PST
Parameter #1: Statistic Modifier
Parameter #2: Type
Description:
Applies the modifier value specified by the Statistic Modifier field in the style specified by the Type field. Luck affects the minimum damage caused by a weapon (up to the normal maximum damage of the weapon) and the attack roll modifier (up to a maximum of 20, excluding natural attack roll modifiers, e.g. high STR, invisibility etc) by Statistic Modifier amount. Statistic Modifier also affects the damge rolls of opponents (in feature blocks, not extension headers). The effect does not set STATE_LUCK.
Known values for Type are:
  • 0 ⟶ Cumulative Modifier: Luck = Luck + 'Statistic Modifier' value
  • 1 ⟶ Flat Value Modifier: Luck = 'Statistic Modifier' value
  • 2 ⟶ Percentage Modifier: Luck = (Luck * 'Statistic Modifier' value) / 100
Info: Effects of Luck:
  • Modifies a creature's weapon damage die rolls (up/down to its maximum/minimum).
  • Modifies a creatures's attack roll [1d20] (up/down to its maximum/minimum).
  • Modifies non-weapon damage die rolls dealt to the creature (up/down to its maximum/minimum).
  • Modifies a creatures's initiative roll [1d6 - 4] for weapon attacks (up/down to its maximum/minimum). See opcode #190 for further details about weapon/attack speed.
  • Modifies a creatures's initiative roll [1d8 - 1] for movement (up/down to its maximum/minimum).
  • Modifies a creatures's skill roll [1d100] for Hiding in Shadows (up/down to its maximum/minimum).
  • Modifies a creatures's skill roll [1d100] for Set Traps (up/down to its maximum/minimum).
  • Modifies a creatures's skill roll [1d10] for Open Locks (up/down to its maximum/minimum).
  • Modifies a creatures's skill roll [1d10] for Bash Doors (up/down to its maximum/minimum).
  • Modifies a creatures's skill roll [1d10] for Disarm Trap (up/down to its maximum/minimum).
  • Modifies the chance for a Mirror Image to be struck, chance = ('number of images' + 'Statistic Modifier') / ('number of images' + 1).
Info: Here’s more info about initiative roll for movement:
  • Apparently, there is intentionally a random wait time between when a creature attempts to move to another creature, and when they will actually start pathing. Luck helps with this...
    Wait Time = 0, when roll = 0
    Wait Time = (8 - roll), when roll != 0
  • The natural roll range is [0,7], but like many other rolls Luck alters this slightly. For every point in Luck the highest bound of the roll is converted into the lower bound.
  • So with 1 Luck the roll becomes [0,6], with 0 having a probability of 25% instead of 12.5%. Negative luck works the same, but in reverse.
  • 1 is the worst roll you can get, yet it is neither of the extremes. So, -1 Luck is bad because it prevents you from bypassing the wait time, (rolling a 0), but if Luck must be negative, the lower the better.
    • Luck = "-1": Worst roll possible is a 1, you will be waiting for 7 AI updates (or, if you prefer, 715ths of a second).
    • Luck = "-7": Worst roll possible is a 7, you will be waiting for 1 AI update (or, if you prefer, 115th of a second)!!
  • Positive Luck will always increase the likelihood of instantaneous pathing.
  • Note that this wait time is only applied to creature-to-creature pathing, and never to on-the-ground destinations.
  • Also, every creature rolls for their own delay when they go to target a creature.

#23 (0x17) Stat: Morale Modifier Variants: BG2
Parameter #1: Statistic Modifier
Parameter #2: Type
Special: Mode
Description:
Applies the modifier value specified by the Statistic Modifier field in the style specified by the Type field.
Known values for Type are:
  • 0 ⟶ Cumulative Modifier: Morale = Morale + 'Statistic Modifier' value
  • 1 ⟶ Flat Value Modifier: Morale = 'Statistic Modifier' value
  • 2 ⟶ Percentage Modifier: Morale = (Morale * 'Statistic Modifier' value) / 100

Statistic Modifier can be positive or negative.

At least in EEs, known values for Mode are:
  • 0 ⟶ BG2 mode – It's hardcoded to fill the following values:
    • Statistic Modifier = 10
    • Type = 1
    • m_done = 1 (internal field that immediately removes the effect from creature, no matter duration)
    • In addition, it checks if the creature is berserking, and if it is, it returns without doing anything.
  • 1 ⟶ BG1 mode – Default (functions as expected)
Note: Any Morale-based effect (i.e. Panic) may be added or removed by this effect.

#24 (0x18) State: Horror Variants: IWD1
Parameter #1: Irrelevant

The effect modifies RESISTELECTRICITY.

#30 (0x1E) Stat: Fire Resistance Modifier Variants: IWD2
Parameter #1: Statistic Modifier
Parameter #2: Type
Description:
Applies the modifier value specified by the Statistic Modifier field in the style specified by the Type field.
Known values for Type are:

'Statistic Modifier' can be positive or negative.
Note: A negative resistance negates damage entirely

#32 (0x20) Cure: Death (Raise Dead) Variants: IWD2
Parameter #1: Irrelevant
Parameter #2: Restore creature animation?
Description:
Raises the targeted creature(s) from the dead.
Known values for Restore creature animation? are:
  • 0 ⟶ No
  • 1 ⟶ Yes

This effect ignores durations attributed to it.
Info: The new animation is selected just as it would be at Character Generation.
Base Animation = 0x6000
  • + Class:
    • 0x0000 (Cleric/Druid/Shaman/Default)
    • 0x0100 (Fighter/Paladin/Ranger)
    • 0x0200 (Mage/Sorcerer)
    • 0x0300 (Thief/Bard)
    • 0x0500 (Monk)
    • Mutliclasses prioritize (Warrior > Priest > Rogue > Wizard)
  • + Gender:
    • 0x0000 (Male/Default)
    • 0x0010 (Female)
  • + Race:

    • 0x0003 (Halfling)
    • 0x0004 (Gnome)
    • 0x0005 (Halforc)
Note:
  • This opcode will only restore life to creatures with STATE_DEAD. Frozen and Petrified creatures do not qualify until after they shatter (at which point you can no longer target them outside of scripts, so it doesn't really matter).
  • The animation reset is not dependent on the target's death state.
Info: The presence of this opcode in any of a spell’s ability headers will force any Wild Surge of that spell to use the “Cast Normally” result.

#33 (0x21) Stat: Save vs. Death Modifier Variants: IWD2
Parameter #1: Statistic Modifier
Parameter #2: Type
Description:
Applies the modifier value specified by the Statistic Modifier field in the style specified by the Type field.
Known values for Type are:
  • 0 ⟶ Cumulative Modifier: Save = Save + 'Statistic Modifier' value
  • 1 ⟶ Flat Value Modifier: Save = 'Statistic Modifier' value
  • 2 ⟶ Percentage Modifier: Save = (Save * 'Statistic Modifier' value) / 100
  • 3 ⟶ Increment Instantly: Save = Save + 'Statistic Modifier' value (EE only)

Statistic Modifier can be positive or negative.

The effect modifies SAVEVSDEATH.
Info: When Type = 3, this opcode processes before saving throws are checked for effects proceeding it in the same effect stack; when Type = 0, it processes after.

#34 (0x22) Stat: Save vs. Wands Modifier Variants: IWD2
Parameter #1: Statistic Modifier
Parameter #2: Type

The effect modifies SAVEVSPOLY.
Info: When Type = 3, this opcode processes before saving throws are checked for effects proceeding it in the same effect stack; when Type = 0, it processes after.

#36 (0x24) Stat: Save vs. Breath Weapons Modifier Variants: IWD2
Parameter #1: Statistic Modifier
Parameter #2: Type
Description:
Applies the modifier value specified by the Statistic Modifier field in the style specified by the Type field.
Known values for Type are:
  • 0 ⟶ Cumulative Modifier: Save = Save + 'Statistic Modifier' value
  • 1 ⟶ Flat Value Modifier: Save = 'Statistic Modifier' value
  • 2 ⟶ Percentage Modifier: Save = (Save * 'Statistic Modifier' value) / 100
  • 3 ⟶ Increment Instantly: Save = Save + 'Statistic Modifier' value (EE only)

Statistic Modifier can be positive or negative.

The effect modifies SAVEVSBREATH.
Info: When Type = 3, this opcode processes before saving throws are checked for effects proceeding it in the same effect stack; when Type = 0, it processes after.

#37 (0x25) Stat: Save vs. Spells Modifier Variants: IWD2
Parameter #1: Statistic Modifier
Parameter #2: Type
Description:
Applies the modifier value specified by the Statistic Modifier field in the style specified by the Type field.
Known values for Type are:
  • 0 ⟶ Cumulative Modifier: Save = Save + 'Statistic Modifier' value

  • 2 ⟶ Percentage Modifier: Save = (Save * 'Statistic Modifier' value) / 100
  • 3 ⟶ Increment Instantly: Save = Save + 'Statistic Modifier' value (EE only)

Statistic Modifier can be positive or negative.

The effect modifies SAVEVSSPELL.
Info: When Type = 3, this opcode processes before saving throws are checked for effects proceeding it in the same effect stack; when Type = 0, it processes after.

#38 (0x26) State: Silence
Parameter #1: Irrelevant
Parameter #2: Irrelevant
Description:
Applies the silence effect to the targeted creature(s). Sets STATE_SILENCED to true.
A silenced creature cannot cast spells / use special abilities (unless flagged as Castable when silenced) or initiate dialog.
The engine is hard-coded to allow these spells to be cast by a silenced creature:
  • "SPWI219" (Vocalize)
  • "SPIN649" (Teleport to Pocket Plane) in BG2/BGEE

#39 (0x27) State: Unconsciousness Variants: IWD2 PST
Parameter #1: Irrelevant
Parameter #2: Wake on Damage?
Special: Icon
Description:
Applies the unconsciousness effect to the targeted creature(s).
Known values for Wake on Damage? are (only in EEs):
  • 0 ⟶ Yes
  • 1 ⟶ No

Icon defines the index from STATDESC.2DA for custom portrait icons (EE only). Default value is Sleep.

This opcode sets the STATE_SLEEPING flag.

Note: Timing Modes 1/4/7 will set the STATE_HELPLESS flag. In such a case, this flag cannot be removed in-game.
Moreover, they will also set STATE_SLEEPING, which works as the Wake on Hit option. It’s just not usable because of the irremovable STATE_HELPLESS.

#40 (0x28) State: Slow
Parameter #1: Irrelevant
Parameter #2: Irrelevant
Description:
Applies the slow effect to the targeted creature(s). It automatically grants the Slow portrait icon.
Info: This effect will cancel out the haste opcode.
Note: This effect doubles the Casting Time of all spells. Not verified for IWD2.
Warning: This opcode will set the STATE_SLOWED flag and nothing else when applied with Timing Mode 1, and cannot be removed within the game by any means, only suppressed by Haste.

#41 (0x29) Graphics: Sparkle Variants: IWD1 IWD2 PST BG2
Parameter #1: Colour
Parameter #2: Type
Description:
Displays the sparkle effect specified by the 'Type' field, in the colour specified by the 'Colour' field. The colour field may be connected to sprkclr.2da.
Known values for 'Colour' are:
0 Crash
1 No effect / Black
2 White / White -> Blue
3 Purple -> White / Purple -> White
4
.. White
12
13 Crash
Known values for 'Type' are:
1 Sparkle Puff
2 No effect?
3 Sparkle Shower
Info: Both of these params use only the lower 16 bits (upper bits might have other function).

#42 (0x2A) Spell: Wizard Spell Slots Modifier Variants: IWD1
Parameter #1: Slot Amount Modifier
Parameter #2: Spell Level
Description:
Alters the number of wizard spell slots available to the targeted creature(s), as specified by the Slot Amount Modifier field, at the level specified by the Spell Level field. Wizard spells are used by Bards, Sorcerers and Wizards in IWD2.
Known values for Spell Level are:
  • 0 ⟶ Double spells
  • 1 ⟶ Level 1
  • 2 ⟶ Level 2
  • 4 ⟶ Level 3
  • 8 ⟶ Level 4
  • 16 ⟶ Level 5
  • 32 ⟶ Level 6
  • 64 ⟶ Level 7
  • 128 ⟶ Level 8
  • 255 ⟶ Level 9

For a Spell Level of 0, the amount of spell slots is doubled for the level specified by the Slot Amount Modifier value and all levels below. The target creature(s) must have at least 1 slot at the selected level to have their slot count changed.

Negative slots start at 65535 (-1), and go from there. Even though the spellbook has room to display only 12 slots at once, the slots are still there and usable.

Slot Amount Modifier can be positive or negative.
Note:
  • If the number of current spell slots is 1:
    • applying a -1 modifier will result in zero current slots and prevent further applications of this opcode from altering spell slots (until this effect terminates or is removed, or the base amount changes).
    • applying a -2 modifier instead would bypass zero and result in 65535 (-1). Then applying a +1 modifier would result in zero current slots and a repeat of the above.
  • Regardless of whether the value can be altered, the effect is still attached to the creature, rather than being discarded entirely. They can still take effect should the creature's base spell slots be altered (such as from leveling up).
  • Applying multiple effects in increments of -1 will insure that spell slots do not go below zero (and thus will not wrap around to maximum).

#43 (0x2B) Cure: Stone to Flesh
Parameter #1: Irrelevant
Parameter #2: Irrelevant
Description:
Removes STATE_STONE_DEATH from the targeted creatures and restores them to 1 HP. Does not affect creatures without STATE_STONE_DEATH.
Important: Both parameters should be 0 (zero).
Note:
  • Will not remove a currently delayed (untriggered) Petrification effect.
  • Nor will it remove the False Petrification mode of opcode #109.

#44 (0x2C) Stat: Strength Modifier Variants: IWD1 IWD2 PST
Parameter #1: Statistic Modifier
Parameter #2: Type
Description:
Applies the modifier value specified by the Statistic Modifier field in the style specified by the Type field.
Known values for Type are:
  • 0 ⟶ Cumulative Modifier: Strength = Strength + 'Statistic Modifier' value
  • 1 ⟶ Flat Value Modifier: Strength = 'Statistic Modifier' value
  • 2 ⟶ Percentage Modifier: Strength = (Strength * 'Statistic Modifier' value) / 100
  • 3 ⟶ Bull's Strength (EE only)

Statistic Modifier can be positive or negative.

The effect modifies STR.
Info: All games but EEs:
  • With a Timing Modes of Permanent or Delayed, if Type is 0 and Statistic Modifier is positive, the statistic will alter and remain shown in white text, and a message 'Strength raised permanently' will be shown.
  • With a Timing Modes of Permanent or Delayed, if Type is 1 or 2, or Statistic Modifier is negative, the statistic will alter and remain shown in white text, though no message is shown.
  • With all other Timing Modes, the statistic will alter and be shown in red text.
On EEs:
  • There's no feedback message about stat being raised permanently in the EE's – it must be done separately with opcode #139.
  • The opcode itself provides no coloring anymore (it's been externalized through "UI.menu")
    • An effective value > base value ⟶ green.
    • An effective value < base value ⟶ red.
    • An effective value = base value ⟶ white/default.
Info: When Type=3:
  • Statistic Modifier is unused: it uses the value listed in CLSSPLAB.2da for the creature's base class, or defaults to 1 if the file isn't present (it only exists by default in IWDEE).
  • A single instance of this opcode (using Type=3) cannot raise Strength above 18 (hardcoded), but multiple instances of it can.
    • This is because it only checks the limit against the creature's base score, not its effective score.
      • A Cleric with 12 base STR could gain up to +6 from the effect each time. Two max roll effects would take them to 24 STR.
      • A Cleric with 16 base STR could only gain up to +2 from the effect each time.
    • Warrior classes also gain a % Strength score, their maximum is actually 18/100. Every /10 is counted as +1 from their die roll. Warriors will not exceed 18/100 though, as once they hit 18, the remaining dice roll converts to a % increase, preventing their score from exceeding 18/100 (18/100 + /10 doesn't convert to 19).
      For instance, if a PALADIN with 17 STR rolls, say, 5, he will end up with 18/40 STR.
  • Like the other modes, applying the effect with Timing Mode 1 will affect the creature's base stat, leaving no removable effect.
  • Once applied to a creature, Statistic Modifier will store the exact STR increase granted, while the Special field will store any Exceptional STR increase granted (only useful for lookup/editing through EEkeeper/NI).
  • When you apply this effect in an External EFF, (via op177 / op283):
    • Parameter1 in the EFF will determine the exact Strength increase (so it must be set manually, and ignores any limit).
    • If Parameter1 is non-zero, Exceptional STR will still be rolled as normal (and only for appropriate Classes).
      • It will be equal to 10 * (Roll - (18 - Base)), capped (0,100).
    • If Parameter1 is zero, no Exceptional STR will be granted.
    • The actual increase for Exceptional STR will be stored in the Special field of op177 / op283 (after it's been applied to the creature).
    • Basically, it works exactly like Type=0, except that warriors will still gain a random Exceptional STR increase (of course it's only noticeable if their resulting STR is 18).
Important: With Timing Modes 1/4/7, the creature's base Strength is altered, leaving behind no removable effect.
Info: Final values are capped to the bound range (0,25) in game (40 in IWD2).

#45 (0x2D) State: Stun Variants: IWD1
Parameter #1: Irrelevant
Parameter #2: Irrelevant
Description:
Stuns the targeted creature(s). In particular:
  • Maintains Portrait Icon Stun (EE only).
  • Immobilizes the creature, limiting it to instantaneous actions (INSTANT.IDS).
  • Maintains STATE_STUNNED.
    • Renders the creature unselectable and disable the Inventory.
  • Maintains STATE_HELPLESS.
    • Renders the creature unselectable and disable the Inventory.
    • Causes all attacks against the creature to automatically hit, disabling Critical Hits and misses.
Note: Applied with Timing Modes 1/4/7: will set the creature’s base STATE_STUNNED flag, while still leaving behind a separate removable effect.
  • Should you remove the effect without removing the state (through means other than opcode #46), the creature will be fully functional, just not controllable by the player (if it was).
  • By itself, STATE_STUNNED does not disable any scripts or limit which actions the creature may take. It needs its opcode's immobilization effect as well as STATE_HELPLESS to fully work.

Parameter #1: Level
Parameter #2: Type
Description:
Dispels magic from the targeted creature(s) (excepting magical weapons eg. Spirtual Hammer). Depending on the value of the 'Type' field, the 'Level' field can be used to set the level of the effect.
Known values for 'Type' are:
  • 0 ⟶ Always dispel
  • 1 ⟶ Use Caster Level
  • 2 ⟶ Use 'Level' field

With 'Type' of 1 or 2, the base chance of successfully dispelling is 50%. This chance is modified by the relative levels of the dispeller to the caster. Each level below gives a -10% chance, each level above gives a +5% chance. There is always a 1% chance of success or failure.

#59 (0x3B) Stat: Stealth Modifier

#61 (0x3D) Crash Variants: BGEE IWD2
Parameter #1: Undefined
Parameter #2: Undefined
Description:
Warning: This effect crashes the game.
Note: This effect has previously been referenced as Alchemy.

#62 (0x3E) Spell: Priest Spell Slots Modifier Variants: IWD1
Parameter #1: Slot Amount Modifier
Parameter #2: Spell Level
Description:
Alters the number of priest spell slots available to the targeted creature(s), as specified by the Slot Amount Modifier field, at the level specified by the Spell Level field.
Known values for Spell Level are:
  • 0 ⟶ Double spells
  • 1 ⟶ Level 1
  • 2 ⟶ Level 2
  • 4 ⟶ Level 3
  • 8 ⟶ Level 4
  • 16 ⟶ Level 5
  • 32 ⟶ Level 6
  • 64 ⟶ Level 7

For a Spell Level of 0, the amount of spell slots is doubled for the level specified by the Slot Amount Modifier value and all levels below. The target creature(s) must have at least 1 slot at the selected level to have their slot count changed.

Negative slots start at 65535 (-1), and go from there. Even though the spellbook has room to display only 12 slots at once, the slots are still there and usable.

Slot Amount Modifier can be positive or negative.
Note:
  • If the number of current spell slots is 1:
    • applying a -1 modifier will result in zero current slots and prevent further applications of this opcode from altering spell slots (until this effect terminates or is removed, or the base amount changes).
    • applying a -2 modifier instead would bypass zero and result in 65535 (-1). Then applying a +1 modifier would result in zero current slots and a repeat of the above.
  • Regardless of whether the value can be altered, the effect is still attached to the creature, rather than being discarded entirely. They can still take effect should the creature's base spell slots be altered (such as from leveling up).
  • Applying multiple effects in increments of -1 will insure that spell slots do not go below zero (and thus will not wrap around to maximum).

#63 (0x3F) State: Infravision
Parameter #1: Irrelevant
Parameter #2: Irrelevant
Description:
Gives the targeted creature(s) infravision and sets STATE_INFRAVISION.
Important: Both parameters should be 0 (zero).
Info: STATE_INFRAVISION specs:
While a creature with Infravision is currently selected,
  • all visible creatures with body heat that are currently in a "shadowed" part of the area receive a "warm" (red-shifted) overlay
  • body heat is determined by a creature's animation (INI file) using detected_by_infravision=1, or by opcode #342 (p1=1 & p2=1)
  • "shadowed" is determined by each area's Light Map "AR####LM.BMP"
    • Some areas have a separate Light Map for "nighttime" hours, "AR####LN.BMP"

#64 (0x40) State: Remove Infravision
Parameter #1: Irrelevant
Parameter #2: Irrelevant
Description:

Parameter #1: Irrelevant
Parameter #2: Irrelevant
Description:
Applies the blur effect to the targeted creature(s) and sets STATE_BLUR. Graphical displacement is affected by movement rate.
Important: Both parameters should be 0 (zero).
Note:
  • STATE_BLUR will maintain the effects of this opcode, once this opcode expires, but only until you save & reload.
  • If you set STATE_BLUR on a CRE file, it won't do anything by itself.
  • If you later apply opcode #65 to the creature, once it expires, the blur visual will remain until you save & reload, but will no longer update based on your movement rate (it will remain stuck at whatever it was when the opcode expired).

#66 (0x42) Graphics: Transparency Fade Variants: IWD1 PST

  • 4 ⟶ As creature file
  • 5 ⟶ Hostile to target
  • 6 ⟶ As creature file
  • 8 ⟶ As creature file
  • 255 ⟶ As creature file
Note:
  • Control values 0 and 1 are identical, 4 and 6 are identical, 3 and 5 are each unique, all other values are identical with each other.
  • Control values 3, 4, 5, and 6 summon the creature at the location of the effect target. All other values summon the creature at the location of the ability target.
Info:
  • (EE only) Resource 2 (external EFFs): Animation VVC/BAM file to be played at the summoned creature's location.
    Default is a hardcoded VVC using "SPBOOM.BAM" and palette #65. This is generally used as the "portal" animation.
  • (EE only) Resource 3 (external EFFs): Animation VVC/BAM file to be played at the location of the ability target.
  • Applies an opcode #271 to the summoned creature based on the duration of the Resource 2 (not exact). Creature will not appear/spawn until this animation finishes.
  • Applies a delayed opcode #215 with resource = "SPGFLSH1" to the summoned creature, delayed duration = 5 ticks less than the opcode #271.
  • Applies a delayed opcode #68 to the summoned creature based on effect duration (unless permanent).
  • When summoned, any temporary changes (such as from equipped items) to the creature's gender are made permanent.

#68 (0x44) Summon: Unsummon Creature
Parameter #1: Text Notification
Parameter #2: Irrelevant
Description:
Unsummons a creature, with feedback controlled by Text Notification.
Known values for Text Notification are:

Note: At least in BG2 and EEs, the Resource key should be set to the filename of the animation to play when unsummoning the creature, and defaults to "SPGFLSH1" if left empty.
Note:
  • Has no effect on Party Members.
  • Moves the targeted creature(s) to area ".ARE" (a non-existant area). This deletes non-global creatures from the game.
  • Global creatures can still be recovered through scripts actions, such as MoveGlobalObject().

#69 (0x45) Protection: From Detection (Non-Detection)
Parameter #1: Irrelevant
Parameter #2: Irrelevant
Description:
Applies the non-detection effect to the targeted creature(s), setting STATE_NONDETECTION while active. This effect is negated by opcode #70. While in the non-detection state, the creature is immune to opcode #47 and opcode #116, though they are affected by effects that remove illusionary protections by school or secondary type.
Important: Timing Modes 1/4/7 will permanently set the creature's STATE_NONDETECTION flag, leaving no removable effect. This flag is not cleared on death.

Description:
Alters the gender of the targetted creature(s) to the value specified by the Gender Modifier field, in the style specified by the Type value.
Known values for Type are:
  • 0 ⟶ Reverse Gender
  • 1 ⟶ Flat Value Modifier: Gender = 'Statistic Modifier' value (values from GENDER.IDS)


The effect modifies SEX_CHANGED.
Note:
  • Reverse Gender also switches the second BIT of the lower BYTE of the creature's animation, which (for PC races), will switch between their male/female animations (0x60000x6010).
  • Other races can be setup this way, but do not occupy the necessary animation slots by default.
    For instance, VAMPIRE is 0x7F12, VAMPIRE_FEMALE is 0x7F22 (Male should be 0x7F02 and female 0x7F12 for it to work).

#72 (0x48) IDS: Set IDS State Variants: IWD2 PST BG2
Parameter #1: IDS Entry
Parameter #2: IDS File
Description:

Note: EFF files delivered by opcode #177/opcode #283 will interact with Deflection separately from the opcode #177/opcode #283 effect that applies them, and only if that opcode #177/opcode #283 effect already got through. If the opcode #177/opcode #283 effect is deflected, then the values in the EFF file won’t matter. Most vanilla EFF files have these fields set to empty/zero to avoid interacting with this opcode.

If a creature has multiple instances of the item, the one in the lowest slot number (see SLOTS.IDS) is removed. "EFF_M02" is hard-coded to play when an item is removed. This effect should be used to remove equipped items (use opcode #123 for inventory items).

#113 (0x71) Item: (Equip Weapon) Variants: BG2
Parameter #1: Undefined
Parameter #2: Undefined
Description:
The use of this effect is unknown, and effect of its parameters are undefined.

Removes invisibility from the targeted creature(s). Also removes STATE_INVISIBLE and STATE_IMPROVEDINVISIBILITY.
This effect ignores durations attributed to it.
Important: Both parameters should be 0 (zero).
Info:
  • The only difference between this opcode and opcode #47 is their index – you can block one with opcode #101 without blocking the other. That's it.
  • Both remove the same effects/STATEs, both are blocked by opcode #69.
  • They might have been intended for identical function, different uses, similar to opcodes #5/#241 (Charm), but it never happened.
  • Opcode #116 is used extensively because the original BG1 used it, and didn't use opcode #47 at all.

#119 (0x77) Spell Effect: Mirror Image Variants: IWD1
Parameter #1: Irrelevant
Parameter #2: Irrelevant
Description:
Applies the Mirror Image effect to the targeted creature(s). The number of images is dicated by the level of the caster.
The exact formula is 'Parameter1' = 2 + ('Caster Level of the spell containing op119' / 3).
Info:
  • A Wizard spell with op119 will use the caster's Wizard Casting Level.
  • A Priest spell with op119 will use the caster's Priest Casting Level.
  • An Innate spell with op119 will use the caster's Innate Casting Level.
Note: A side note about non-spellcaster classes:

A Mirror Image scroll used by a Thief with HLA Use Any Item will use the level 10 duration, but the level 1 Image count.
The scroll casts the spell at level 10, but the opcode checks the caster’s Wizard Caster Level (which for a Thief is 1).

#120 (0x78) Protection: from Weapons
Parameter #1: Enchantment
Parameter #2: Type
Description:
Gives the targeted creature(s) immunity to weapons as specified by the Type field. The Enchantment field is used if Type is set to 0.

#121 (0x79) Empty:
Parameter #1: Irrelevant
Parameter #2: Irrelevant
Description:
This opcode has no effect. Sometimes known as "Graphics: (Visual Animation Effect)".

  • HP modifier is always positive (negative values become zero), but because Max HP itself is not bounded, it can overflow into negative amounts (Max HP is 32767).
  • When used in external EFFs, Parameter2 controls the exact amount of HP gained.
Note:
  • While this opcode is "Non-Cumulative" (it sets values rather than increment), what it really does is stack in reverse standard order.

Important: The Magical Weapon Slot does not allow Item Abilities.
Moreover, unlike opcode #111, this opcode will not "equip" the item that's created in this particular slot.
Note: When using a non-permanent timing mode, it applies a delayed opcode #123 effect based on the duration, but with an empty resource field, resulting in nothing being removed.

#144 (0x90) Button: Disable Button Variants: IWD1 IWD2 BG2

  • 0 ⟶ Wizard
  • 1 ⟶ Priest
  • 2 ⟶ Innate

#146 (0x92) Spell: Cast Spell (at Creature) Variants: IWD2 PST
Parameter #1: Casting Level
Parameter #2: Type
Description:
Casts the spell specified by the resource key at the level specified by the Casting Level field, in the style specified by the Type field. A Casting Level of 0 casts at the level of the casting creature.
Known values for Type are:
  • 0 ⟶ Normal Casting at specified level (0 for caster level), non-interruptible
  • 1 ⟶ Cast Instantly at caster level
  • 2 ⟶ Cast Instantly at specified level (EE-only)
Important:
  • When this opcode gets reflected using Type=1, the spell specified by the resource key is cast at the target's Casting Level, not the caster's.
  • When this opcode gets reflected using Type=2, the spell specified by the resource key is cast at the specified Casting Level, and it will also affect the original target (as if it wasn't reflected – though it will decrement Spell Turning).
Note:
  • When Type=2, effects in the resource will also bypass Magic Resistance, of every target, as if the caster targeted themselves, regardless of who they target with the spell or this effect.
    • Setting the Ignore Center bit in the subspell's projectile will force its effects to check Magic Resistance on every target, even if the caster did target themselves. Though as its primary function is to cause the projectile to ignore the caster (not "center"), it still won't affect them if it's area-effect.
Note: If the target is a container, the Type parameter is ignored and treated as 0.
Info: See opcode #326 for some peculiarities of projectile behaviour for Type=2.

Parameter #1: Casting Level
Parameter #2: Type
Description:
Casts the spell specified by the resource key, at the level specified by the Casting Level field, in the style specified by the Type field. A Casting Level of 0 casts at the level of the casting creature.
Known values for Type are:
  • 0 ⟶ Normal Casting
  • 1 ⟶ Cast Instantly (ignore Casting Level)
Note: This opcode does not work if the target is a container in non-ee versions.
Info: This opcode should generally target Self. In particular:
  • The projectile of the subspell will originate from the target(s) of opcode #148.
  • If the SPL/ITM with opcode #148 targets a location, and doesn't have an area-effect projectile, there will be no target to cast on.
  • If the SPL/ITM with opcode #148 has an area-effect projectile, the spell in opcode #148 would be cast once for every valid target.
  • If this opcode uses the Cast Instantly option, then the target, not the caster, would cast the spell in opcode #148.

It just plays a visual effect, like a far more limited version of opcode #215, and is always instantaneous.

Info: On EE games:

    • ANIMATION1 is the initial animation, ANIMATION2 is the lingering animation.
  • BGEE/BG2EE use the default * (hardcoded) entries for all damage types, but they can be overridden by setting entries in DMGTYPES.2DA, as IWDEE does.
  • The animations for Animation=1/2/3 are not pulled from DMGTYPES.2DA, they're most likely fully hardcoded.

Applies the effect specified by the resource key to the targeted creature(s) when an item of the item type specified by the Type field is equipped.
Note: Ammo (i.e., Arrows, Bullets and Bolts) does not work well with this opcode. The Ammo Slots are always “Equipped”, even when they are not in use. In other words: they trigger opcode #183 just by being in a quiver slot, regardless of whether the correct launcher is equipped or even active.
The offhand has the same issue – even when disabled, it’s detected by this opcode as equipped.
Having said that, this opcode currently allows detecting a launcher using its automated ammo (such as Shortbow of Gesen).
Warning: This effect has never been seen to work. This is not true for EE games.

#184 (0xB8) Graphics: Passwall (Don't Jump)
Parameter #1: Undefined
Parameter #2: Jump
Description:
Allows creatures to be placed in impassable areas, based on the value of the Jump field.
Known values for Jump are:
  • 0 ⟶ Do Jump from impassable areas
  • 1+ ⟶ Don't Jump from impassable areas
Warning: PST: This effect doesn’t exist and always crashes the game.
IWD2: Don’t use.

#185 (0xB9) State: Hold Variants: BG2 IWD2 PST
Parameter #1: IDS Entry
Parameter #2: IDS File
Description:
Applies the hold effect to the targeted creature(s), if the targeted creature(s) match the value specified by the 'IDS Entry' field, in the specified 'IDS File'. The affected creature(s) have a yellow fade lighting effect before being held.
Applies the hold effect to the targeted creature(s),
Known values for 'IDS File' are:
2 EA.ids
3 General.ids
4 Race.ids
5 Class.ids
6 Specific.ids
7 Gender.ids
8 Align.ids

#186 (0xBA) Script: MoveToArea Variants: PST
Parameter #1: Delay
Parameter #2: Orientation
Description:
Marks the targetted creature(s) as travelling to the area specified by the resource key. The creature appears in the specified area after a delay (specified by the Delay field), with the orientation specified by the Orientation field.
In particular:
  • Global Creatures ignore the delay.
  • If the creature is already in the specified area, it will ignore the delay.
  • Non-global creatures currently in a different area than specified will use the delay.
  • Delay is measured in 130 seconds, (½ tick), 600 = 20 seconds.
  • On non-EE games, the creature appears at the point specified by the Target Point fields (external EFF files only).
    • On EE games, target(s) appear at Caster's Coordinates in new area (it does not seem to be possible to override through EFFs).
  • Creature is moved to the new area (instantly) and flagged Moving Between Areas until their delay expires (if it's used). It won't be active until the delay expires (it's hidden, cannot be affected by Area-effect, doesn't occupy space). It can still be targeted by the various Everyone targeting modes in the new area while it's still inactive, but similar to maze/imprisonment, effects won't trigger (including poison and similar) on them until they become active.
Warning: IWD2: there was a note to not use this effect in older IESDP.
There is some confusion whether the Target (bg1, iwds) or the Caster point field is used.
Important: Avoid saving during the delay (can lead to lost NPCs or crashes if you load while NPC's are still in transition).

#187 (0xBB) Script: Store Local Variable Variants: PST BG2
Parameter #1: Value
Parameter #2: Irrelevant
Description:
This effect stores a local variable, specified by the 'variable' field. This effect can only be used in an external effect (ie. an eff file).
Note: At minimum in later engines, this opcode can also store other values. Check the doc for BG2.

#188 (0xBC) Spell Effect: Aura Cleansing Variants: PST
Parameter #1: Irrelevant
Parameter #2: Stat Value
Description:
While ON, the creature displays string STRREF_FEEDBACK_AURA_CLEANSED (EE games only) whenever they begin to cast a spell before their aura would normally clear (i.e. more than once/round). Does NOT affect item usage, only spellcasting.
Set the Stat Value field to any non-zero value if you want no time needed between spells.

The effect modifies AURACLEANSING to Stat Value.
Note: The Stat Value parameter can take any value. If you set it to 0, you will disable the effect (for its duration).

#189 (0xBD) Stat: Casting Time Modifier Variants: PST BG2
Parameter #1: Speed Modifier
Parameter #2: Irrelevant
Description:
** DUFF EFFECT? **
Alters the casting time of spells by the value specified by the 'Speed Modifier' field. This effect is cummulative. Positive values decrease the casting time, negative values increase the casting time.

#190 (0xBE) Stat: Attack Speed Factor Variants: PST
Parameter #1: Speed Modifier
Parameter #2: Irrelevant
Description:
Alters the weapon's attack speed by the value specified by the Speed Modifier field. This effect is not cumulative. Attack speed ranges from 0 (good) to 10 (bad). This effect acts as a bonus, so a high Speed Modifier is good.
This effect sets PHYSICALSPEED to Speed Modifier.
