Remove XP Cap
To remove the Experience Point Cap in Baldur's Gate 2, first browse to your BG2
directory and make a copy of the BGMain.exe application file. Then, open a Hex
Editor and open BGMain.exe. Search for the ASCII string 'xpcap' (all lower
case). Change the 'x' to another character (any letter should work). Save the
file, and launch BG2.
Note: Although your characters can now progress to level 40, for some checks
the game still sees you as 20th-or-so. Spell progression for seems to cease at
20th level, and you may not have enough skill points to become Grand Master in
every weapon or maximize every thief skill, even at 40th level. Save your game
before you level your characters to 40. No game-critical events should be
affected by your unnatural level.
