Method And Explanation Edit

Baldur's Gate II

Without Throne Of Bhaal installed, the only menu that can be unpaused is the inventory. To do this, just enter and exit a container in the inventory, and the game will unpause.

With Throne Of Bhaal installed, every menu except the inventory can be unpaused. To do this, enter the map screen, and from there enter the menu you wish to enter unpaused.

Notable Speedrunning ApplicationsEdit
