There is no uninstall just for the patch, so to revert back you would have to uninstall the patched game, make sure everything but the saved games were removed from the BD folder (should be) and then reinstall. An earlier patch would overwrite at least some of the changes made by a later patch, but more things fixed potentially means more files changed, so that could cause problems with conflicting versions.

Zip or otherwise backup your saved games folder to another location before uninstalling, just in case. Each save is a separate subfolder in the '..\Beyond Divinity\savegames' folder; the 5 'bd_act#_start' folders are created/updated by the game/patch, and uninstalling the game should remove them.


What problems were you having, and how did they worsen after the patch was installed? There are no know issues caused by the patch, that I recall.

The patch for Divine Divinity is 1.34 and for Beyond Divinity that's patch nr 1.47. Could it be that you have installed the wrong patch on your game?

More info can be found here:

Hope this helps you.

while we're on the subject of stupid patches, I downloaded v 1.47 for the english version of BD and installed it 3 times. So tell me why the selection menu at the start of the game still indicates that I'm running v 1.45? Why doesn't the patch take?

Are you checking the version number in the very bottom right corner of the main menu? The game version and save versions should both be listed in the load window, as well.

What is the name of the patch you downloaded? It should be 'BeyondDivinityEnglishPatch1.47.exe'.

The game version is v 1.45 that's showing in the load window. I downloaded v 1.47 from the Larian site and ran the installation of the patch by double clicking the icon.

What version number is displayed in the bottom right corner of the main menu?

Alternately, check the '..\Beyond Divinity\ReadMe\PatchLog.txt' file, and see what version is listed there.
