Baldurs Gate Enhanced Edition: Edit 2 with added video & launch delay Foxhead Send a noteboard - 07/09/2012 09:48:16 PM
Edit 2: Till the 30th November. the pain is too fresh to comment at the moment

Source Article: http://forum.baldursgate.com/discussion/4796/ship-date-delay

Edit: Better than posting a new thread I think. It's not really about BGEE, but a cool video showing how BG2 could be ported to a Dragon Age style engine, with the Escape from Irenicus' Dungeon scene.

So. Close.

I seriously can't wait to play it again and over the improved multiplayer connectivity which I never could on the old cause I couldn't my head around it.

I'm also thinking about what character I'm playing, something old or new, revisiting Durlag's Tower. Maybe doing a themed party, creating all 6 members. I remember doing a WoT team once. Fighter/Mage. Fighter. Ranger. Cleric/Mage. Bard. Thief. I'm sure you can figure out whom most of them are.

With the reputation system being fixed (so that you don't get mobbed by guards every time you enter a town) I might do an evil party from fantasy literature. Something like:

Gregor Clegane
Sauron (circa Second Age)
Steerpike
Voldemort

Tell me other people do this too?

!!!!! - 07/09/2012 10:49:47 PM 886 Views
are they created kindly or cruelly? - 08/09/2012 05:34:36 PM 832 Views
Lol! Realistically, if exaggerated to heroic levels. - 09/09/2012 07:56:32 PM 858 Views
I played the hell out of BG2, but only played BG1 once - 08/09/2012 06:07:15 AM 961 Views
BGI is a lot more fun because a lot more challenging, IMHO. - 08/09/2012 02:33:17 PM 886 Views
fireballs are so epic in BG1 - 08/09/2012 05:41:34 PM 831 Views
I disagree about it being the only good third level spell;lighting bolt and haste are also excellent - 08/09/2012 06:26:08 PM 872 Views
Yeah, I loved Lightning Bolt. - 08/09/2012 06:44:59 PM 797 Views
it was such a liability - 08/09/2012 07:11:36 PM 840 Views
Bouncing is what makes lightning bolts great, because you get to hit people more than once. - 08/09/2012 08:59:10 PM 786 Views
There's an unfortunate Wizard in the Firewine Bridge Ruins... - 09/09/2012 12:58:18 AM 853 Views
Oops. - 09/09/2012 01:43:23 AM 832 Views
that's why BG1 was so awesome. exploration=rewards - 09/09/2012 09:09:22 AM 821 Views
Yeah, got to keep one of each on hand. - 08/09/2012 08:57:31 PM 765 Views
Multi-player was actually pretty simple if you just used it to create your whole party. - 08/09/2012 02:19:35 PM 806 Views
well yeah, because there was no connection to figure out - 08/09/2012 06:59:49 PM 875 Views
Right; I was never a big multiplayer fan anyway, but customized parties were nice - 08/09/2012 08:53:45 PM 973 Views
Where's the fun in having a customized party and losing all the character interaction, though? - 09/09/2012 04:03:10 PM 841 Views
I dislike most of the BG NPCs anyway, so I do not much feel the lack. - 09/09/2012 04:45:12 PM 984 Views
Re: I dislike most of the BG NPCs anyway, so I do not much feel the lack. - 10/09/2012 01:23:44 PM 801 Views
Agreed. - 11/09/2012 07:01:07 PM 889 Views
Suggestion since you're not using the NPCs anyway... - 15/09/2012 11:34:28 PM 897 Views
That is a good thought; I never played IWD. - 16/09/2012 03:31:01 AM 811 Views
Where did you think I just got it? - 16/09/2012 04:39:43 PM 771 Views
How would I know you just got a game released in the late nineties? - 17/09/2012 06:57:19 PM 765 Views
Re: How would I know you just got a game released in the late nineties? - 17/09/2012 11:08:09 PM 846 Views
I still like GURPS' character points best. - 17/09/2012 11:40:12 PM 793 Views
Heh, I'm not surprised. - 18/09/2012 01:47:55 AM 828 Views
If you want to avoid hyperspecialization, avoid classes. - 18/09/2012 07:36:43 AM 966 Views
I've never played GURPS, so I don't know how its system works. - 18/09/2012 03:32:21 PM 894 Views
I recommend it, but it is a bear to run. - 19/09/2012 03:37:19 AM 1065 Views
Re: I recommend it, but it is a bear to run. - 19/09/2012 08:35:24 AM 868 Views
It is the difference between "what if...?" and "whatever...." - 19/09/2012 10:58:31 PM 894 Views
Re: It is the difference between "what if...?" and "whatever...." - 20/09/2012 12:31:10 AM 853 Views
AD&D cannot avoid one-sided encounters without restricting epic characters to epic encounters. - 24/09/2012 05:53:39 AM 1030 Views
Re: AD&D cannot avoid one-sided encounters without restricting epic characters to epic encounters. - 24/09/2012 07:03:39 AM 820 Views
Things are a little different if you are the GM, yes. - 24/09/2012 08:33:23 AM 939 Views
Re: Things are a little different if you are the GM, yes. - 24/09/2012 07:24:51 PM 987 Views
My point is no one should be at any level. - 25/09/2012 01:23:21 AM 902 Views
Re: My point is no one should be at any level. - 25/09/2012 03:41:42 AM 988 Views
I know no more about AD&D 3rd Ed. than I retain from skimming the book a few times in a store. - 25/09/2012 05:16:49 AM 857 Views

I can't speak for IWD I, but II is okay on the story front so far. - 18/09/2012 06:36:16 PM 780 Views
Nah, IWD I barely had any story at all. - 18/09/2012 08:16:49 PM 693 Views
agreed - 19/09/2012 09:42:28 AM 892 Views
I've still only played about 4 hours of BG1 - 08/09/2012 03:59:49 PM 776 Views
If you have not yet, you should look into the Weidu mods. - 08/09/2012 06:12:20 PM 802 Views
But what's the point in playing the game if you don't use the NPCs? - 08/09/2012 06:47:38 PM 791 Views
agreed the NPCs are half the fun - 08/09/2012 07:02:22 PM 834 Views
Not having a bunch of potentially useful but AI ruined incompetents constantly fumbling. - 08/09/2012 08:55:53 PM 888 Views
Yeah, but optimising the whole group sounds ridiculously easy. - 09/09/2012 01:03:51 AM 816 Views
Well, there are always mods for that. - 09/09/2012 01:37:42 AM 768 Views
For talking to pretty much anyone, really. - 09/09/2012 03:20:29 AM 822 Views
True. - 09/09/2012 03:46:24 AM 829 Views
Well, I usually don't have thieves in my party. - 09/09/2012 04:56:21 AM 788 Views
there wasn't a good enough thief option in bg2/ToB - 09/09/2012 09:15:21 AM 767 Views
I noticed that also; another argument for creating a party via MP even if you move it back to SP. - 09/09/2012 11:45:12 PM 828 Views
storyline man! - 10/09/2012 01:43:51 PM 825 Views
I make my OWN storyline. - 10/09/2012 06:35:43 PM 861 Views
Just how many thieves do you even need? - 10/09/2012 06:22:58 PM 814 Views
The stealth skills come in very handy though. - 09/09/2012 04:11:40 PM 804 Views
Any suggested parties for beginners? *NM* - 10/09/2012 01:13:38 AM 483 Views
I plan to do custom characters for the other 6 slots - 10/09/2012 01:42:41 AM 801 Views
There are no "other" six slots - there are six slots, period. - 10/09/2012 06:24:33 PM 764 Views
well, absolute standard would be: - 10/09/2012 01:35:15 PM 854 Views
My own recommendation would be: - 10/09/2012 07:36:04 PM 816 Views
I am completely stoked about it. - 10/09/2012 07:07:09 PM 871 Views
TotSC made BGI a LOT more fun. - 10/09/2012 07:46:03 PM 752 Views
all the kits/races/dual wielding etc will be available in bgee - 11/09/2012 09:02:35 AM 800 Views
Ah; nice. - 11/09/2012 06:57:14 PM 894 Views
i'm not sure they were even state of the art at the time - 12/09/2012 09:26:05 AM 785 Views
Remember, BGI was released only about two years after Doom. - 13/09/2012 12:05:11 AM 820 Views
If by "two" you mean "five," then yes. DOOM was released in 1993. - 13/09/2012 03:22:58 PM 841 Views
Ah, 1998. The golden year. Ocarina of Time. Starcraft. Half-Life. *NM* - 13/09/2012 04:16:21 PM 493 Views
Can't believe I forgot about HALF-LIFE. *NM* - 13/09/2012 09:06:55 PM 469 Views
That just reminds me of how sad it is that StarCraft died this year . *NM* - 13/09/2012 11:55:28 PM 457 Views
I don't mind the graphics in it - 12/09/2012 04:38:47 PM 828 Views
Re: I don't mind the graphics in it - 13/09/2012 01:55:24 AM 774 Views
I'm going to ask this here rather than start a new topic as its somewhat related. - 10/09/2012 07:42:32 PM 775 Views
I remember Wisdom being important - 14/09/2012 04:28:23 AM 765 Views
And it now has been delayed till Nov *NM* - 15/09/2012 03:52:41 AM 469 Views
On another note, shame on all of you for not telling me Jon Irenicus is Ra's Al Ghul - 15/09/2012 04:19:21 AM 816 Views
Among many many others. - 17/09/2012 06:45:33 PM 741 Views
