    The page is still empty :\

    Reload it. The first time you load it it sometimes is all black.

    So I preordered it... How do I get the client to work(yes I know I can't play the game yet) but shouldn't I be able to open the client and see what it looks like? There's a big yellow button on the website that says "download the client" but it doesn't work on my Mac. What am I doing wrong?

    I don't think the client works for macs.

    So how do I get the game on a Mac? The button says Mac/windows for beamdog.

    Normally you'd login to Beamdog.com and then from there you could download it.

    @meagloth yeah, or I think if you have their launcher it will show up there as well, when it will be out.

    As I understand the Beamdog client is kinda like a steam client. Somethinge til launch all your Beamdog games from.
    I don't know if it Works on Mac.
    I have allways used the stand alone launcher for BG and BG2 on my PC

    People make NPC mods for those who want 'em anyway, so that's cool.

    Friendly reminder that claiming anything Icewind Dale related to be "cool" makes you a bad person.

    That's it? The big announcement is a completely different game? With cut content from "Unfinished Business", when they said again and again they couldn't do that for BG? That was their only announcement?

    *gasps* IWD:EE?! ALL MY DREAMS HAVE COME TRUE! Someone let me know if there actually will be a new forum, because I'm too lazy to keep track of it myself.

    I think they can include the UB content because Atari is no longer a holder of the D&D IP and has no say in what beamdog can or can't do to the game. So my guess is the "you can't change the original story in any way" bit that was in the BG:EE contract is not in the IWD:EE contract.

    @dee (I'm sorry, you probably have a million notifications right now, but this is a real question) what's the word on legal stuff? I assume the same restrictions and agreements as bg? It doesn't look like you're going as big as you did with bg so maybe they won't be such a problem? Or are they such a problem and that's why you didn't go big?
