    Some general enhancements that have already been confirmed elsewhere:
    - Weapon imports working with Malaaq in Irenicus's dungeon
    - Romances with Neera, Dorn, and Rasaad accounting for where you left off in BG:EE (as well as mod support for importing specific variables)
    Will these necessitate a new playthrough or should it apply to an exisiting BG2EE game (after meeting the NPC but before romance starts)

  • DeeDee Member Posts: 10,447
    They'll need a new game, since they draw things from the import itself.

    Can any devs comment on additional languages being supported (which), if resizeable fonts from bg1 are included and if steam will get mac support? Those are some unconfirmed/unanswered questions left on the board.

    What's the deal with Weapon imports now working with Malaaq in Irenicus's dungeon (Yes)?

    There will be other options than Sarevok's Sword as a reward for his quest or something ?

    The Sword of Chaos is still available elsewhere in the dungeon, but not from Malaaq.

    May I ask the reason of this change?
    I thought that Malaaq was intended to give that sword.

  • AedanAedan Member, Translator (NDA) Posts: 8,255
    @Dee
    WOW! That is interesting.
    I definitely can see the Sword of Chaos into the Cambion's hands.
    Thanks for the reply :)

    15 were original game bugs. These bugs in the original game have no fix.

    Does this mean that there will be bugs in the game that will never ever be fixed?

    It means that there are bugs from the original game that are only fixed in the Enhanced Edition. This patch adds 15 to that number.

    I've just read a post about updating quick loot feature to match its counterpart in IWDEE.
    But IWDEE quick loot is bugged in the same way as BG&BG2 QL.
    Is there any chance of getting the quick loot fixed in the upcoming patch?

    You'll have to be more specific. What behavior are you looking to see fixed?

  • ParysParys Member Posts: 164
    Stockpilling or red tint for usable items issues
    and this one:
    [Known 9924] Quicklooting does not play specific sound while pick item up

    Yes to the first and third; the red tint is still an issue at the moment.

    I thought that Malaaq was intended to give that sword.
    It was behavior that was originally intended but never fully implemented due to code limitations, which was why the Sword of Chaos was given to Malaaq as a more sensible reward. We've fixed those limitations here, allowing us to properly implement the import; but the Sword of Chaos could never be imported (it doesn't exist anywhere in Baldur's Gate), and we want that weapon to still be available, so it's been moved to the Cambion instead.
    Thanks Dee for the explanation. Looking forward to the change, before when Malaaq talks about having something of yours it made little sense that he was referring to a sword that didn't exist in the previous game.

    Thanks for the reply =D
    Another quick question, are there any new kits or classes being introduced in this patch? =P

    When are we going to see new patches for the first two games, maybe with the enhancements we saw in IWD:EE (like the new cleric kits)?

    Is it only 15 bugs from the original in total? Because looking at that post from CamDawg on the gog forums it seemed to me that, from a group of 25 bugs, 15 were original bugs and 10 were EE-related. So from those 413 bugs are only 15 original bugs or was CamDawg's post more of a distribution stating that the bugs original and EE-related are roughly spread along a 1,5:1 ratio?

    Yep :)

    It was a spot-check of 25, not of the whole pack.
