Is enemy prebuffing purposefully disabled in some encounters? in Sword Coast Stratagems Posted January 12 Yes. (It reflects the fact that the party are teleported in without warning, so it's implausible for the chess pieces to prebuff.) This is externalized to stratagems\mage\override\[bg1/bg2]\boolean.2da. Setting the Boolean DoNotPrebuff turns off buffing. You'll see that in BG1 it applies to the chess pieces, to a couple of dopplegangers, to Silke in Beregost, and (iirc) to a couple of adventurers you can meet abruptly in Baldur's Gate.
