    Just sent out 12 emails.

    Do you guys need me to start 400 new games and send them to you? 'Cuz you know, I really want that beta to be out. :)

    Well, I would have loved to have sent you guys some but my hard drive fizzled. Me being the genius that I am, I didn't have my save files backed up. (Insert facepalm and community ridicule here). As soon as I get my new computer I'll help however I can, though!

    I just started using Google drive 2 weeks ago. For $5 a month I back up 100gb of family photos, videos, school work, and baldurs gate save files!

    Keep sending your save games in ladies and gents!

    Just want to know one thing, please. Will the new GUI be in HD resolution?

    maybe I am asking too much... but I try...
    there will be some change on druid spells in this new patch? I ask because I like druids very much, but the selection of spells in the first BG is kind of poor...

    and another question: how do I know if the save I sent it was good? it was xp uncapped, and probably I installed the tweak pack long ago. If it's a good save game I have 3 or 4 more to send!

    It loaded fine, but the tests are only useful to us if the saves are clean. If you don't have any clean saves that's okay, we'll get there, it just might take a little longer.

    Quick update: We just finished our 200th successful test. Only 300 more to go, so keep those saves a-comin'!

  • Will the new multiplayer service which is to come with the next patch make use of a NAT Traversal server? (Meaning a server which you connect to transparently like to a VPN server to circumvent NATs)

    Without it, 3G/4G players will likely not be able to play.

    I hope you're working on the weekend Dee lol. ~100 saves a day is cool with me. Only 3 days to go :D

    Maybe I can help with the hardware tests?

    I would like to send you saves but I only play edited saves.

    Yes. :)
    NICE! :D Then count me in the open MP beta. (I got LTE/4G only because I live in a very rural area)

    Wouldn't it make sense to do this thing in a more staggered way. Ie. give us the details what you want from us for the hardware compatibility part already. So when you finish the save thing you already got big pile of hardware "thingies" waiting to be tested.

    Ok, 4 saves sent.
    - Clean game (I just deleted and redownloaded it to make sure than no mods are left)
    - Just one thing, Alaric the Paladin made the tutorial before starting his aventuring life, and kept some equipement with him. Does it affect the tests ?

    Big thanks to all of you at Beamdog, it's a pleasure to journey with Minsc, Bouh, Imoen, and all the company again.

    I'm running the Steam version - would a save from that be acceptable?

    Have to say it's a depressing state of affairs that this is the first real transparency we've seen, and that a full year later we're still waiting on Android. BG2:EE for Android in 2016?

    Nevermind, figured it out.

  • DeeDee Member Posts: 10,447
    Just a quick update: we've reached 300 saves tested!

    ...And we're running out of saves to test! Send us your saves!

    Preferably saves post-Chapter 1; we've gotten plenty of Candlekeep saves, but not a whole lot from the latter portions of the game. Keep 'em coming!

    @Dee I could send you my Quick Save and Auto Save but you said you have enough of those. If you change your mind just give a word:)

    hm, i changed alignment of the PC with EEkeeper at one point. would those saves still qualify?

  • SkydogSkydog Member Posts: 111
    @Cahir
    What if u load ur Quick Save and save it under a different name?)))
    Don't know though if it's okay for testing or not.

  • wednesdaywednesday Member Posts: 61
    Just sent another 15... and that's all I got. There's a couple from Candlekeep in there but I think most are from later on. Would it help if I started generating more saves from later chapters or would that just be redundant?

    @trinit: Nope, they are invalid.

    Do files altered with EEkeeper count as "modded"?

    Yes.
