So, my brother and I were hoping to start an Icewind Dale multiplayer game, with each of us taking only one character and not using the pause button at all. He is planning a Ranger/Cleric, while I thought I'd roll a Fighter/Mage/Thief.
I got a great stat roll and started out my character, eager to begin the multiplayer game... when I realized that apparently F/M/Ts in IWD only get ONE weapon slot! I had previously rolled one in BG and enjoyed two slots, which let me go swords or bows as needed.
Since we're trying to play a no-pause game, and since there's no weapon specialty in IWD for me to sink proficiency points, I'm going to have to bail on this character unless there's a way to equip two weapons at once in the Icewind Dale engine.
Anyone have any ideas, such as a mod that lets me use the BG engine in IWD, or an editing program? Help would be much appreciated.
