Just a bit of a warning for those who want to play Pool of Radiance with the Ranger and Paladin.  Don't get level drained.  Weird stuff starts to happen when you try to restore them.  First the character's gender will cycle from male-->female-->copper-->' '.  Second, the restoration spell won't actually restore the level but give the character, literally, 10,000,000 xp.  This was done just using restoration scrolls so maybe  GBC's Fix-Drain option will work better.

-edit-
I just tested GBC's Fix-Drain option and it seems to work fine for the Paladin and Ranger.  Just don't use any restoration scrolls on them.

Something has happened. I was transferring saves from one module to another and I got weird multiple items in Frua in my PC's inventory called "one". When I tried to load the save from GBC it told me "number of items out of range". I supposed it has something to do with these weird items that appeared in my inventory. I dropped them but still now GBC wont let me load the save anymore and I definitely can't play FRUA without GBC's help.

Can you mail me the modules and save files before / after transferring and I could take a look. Use the email address from the GBC Help.txt.

It seems that character Yenros has somehow 17 items already in GAME 10 save slot A. As far as I know the maximum items per character in all Gold Box games is 16.

Try dropping one item in GAME 10, making a save and then exporting characters to GAME 12. I suggest doing the dropping in GAME 10 before transferring so that something won't corrupt the character or item data.

I didn't try with UAShell, just plain FRUA but after dropping one item GBC loaded the save slot fine. Don't know if those designs are hacked designs or not.

Btw. should the character Hordak be dwarf? He has dwarven bonus effects on him but his race is currently human.

Thanks that worked! Yes they are hacked designs.

Yes Hordak should be a dwarf. Thanks for catching that, I don't know what the cause for it could be. Should I just go into the editor and set him as a dwarf again?

How do I get past this error I'm having? It's saying "ERROR: Name for character does not match! (character record at $0)".

The save I have works on the old GBC version but the new one shows the aforementioned error.

What game? If you can send me the save (+ design if FRUA) + some info, I'll take a look.
