Jaheira's Romance Guide & LOVETALK Variables - Baldur's Gate 2

Jaheira Lovetalk Console Command

This page is a Jaheira Romance Guide that I copy and pasted from the Ironworks Forum. All credit goes to the original author, the reason I am reuploading it here is because I suspect Ironworks Forum will go offline within the next few years considering no one uses it anymore.

Like I talk about in my Jaheira's Companion Quest walkthrough - you'll need to raise Jaheira's LOVETALK variable to advance the quest. In order to raise Jaheira's LOVETALK variable what you need to do is have her in your party and stand around for hours on end... No, really, you're going to be standing around a lot to advance this quest.

You'll notice below that each # has a word after it, Sleep, Pause, Trigger Event. This lets you know what you have to do to trigger the LOVETALK event from Jaheira. When it says Sleep you'll have to Rest and it'll trigger when you wake up; Trigger Event is often related to a side quest or Jaheira's Companion Quest. Upon reaching a certain trigger event her romance will progress.

Really the only one I need to explain is Pause as that isn't really self evident. So, how Jaheira's Romance (and a few others) work is a certain amount of real life time needs to pass before the next dialogue event will trigger. The amount of time that needs to pass is typically 1hr real time. You can leave your characters standing around doing nothing for this hour with the game paused and when you return to unpause it you'll trigger the next dialogue with Jaheira to increase her LOVETALK.

It doesn't matter if you pause the game or not as real life time passes either way (shocking!).
