    Regarding Redmine, what does that mean when a report has the classification Public Item ? A lot of reports have this instead of a classification A, B, C or D.

    i hope that the update is significant and has some substantive enhancements. no reason to stop bringing the games to the professed "excellent state".

    2 devs May be visible at he Public tracker - there's an internal one too, where we don't have access to and where - maybe - more people are working.

    Wow, sounds mysterious...

    The next update won't only fix bugs. As Trent has said, it will take some time because the update will try to improve all games.

    I think I read somewhere that one of the goals of publishing the Redmine data is to let us know what the team is working on. However, what you say suggests that that is not the case at all.

    I believe Dee mentioned that Redmine is the public facing side we can report and check on, but just because things aren't mentioned in Redmine doesn't mean they aren't being worked on by the dev team. :)

    True, but it was also advertised as "This list will be a fair representation of the current plan."
    If nothing is happening for over a month, or it is decided to have a (public, as in Road to ...) beta, it is not really a fair representation anymore I'd say ;)

    The Redmine system was a good indication when the team was busy with hot-fixing and firing patches every several weeks. Now, when the work is being done on the deeper level, a list with bugs can't be the indicator.

    Fair enough @JuliusBorisov, but if you (Beamdog) do not communicate the fact that hotfixing is over and you're moving towards longer periods before patches arrive (at least not until very recent) and on the redmine there is a new roadmap for a new active already, it is not so surprising that people wonder about it, is it?
    I guess that might be the unintended side-effect of the changes in the company.

    Hi guys,
    There are a lot of treads and i couldn't find any info(or i didn;t serach well enought...that might be also), but is there a Android update(Mobile update) planed soon also? I've just started playing BG:EE on my phone and i love it. It's a big game and i'm still trying to grasp all it;'s content, but that's the magic of the game. You can do a lot more than most of the rpg's. :) keep up the good work.

    Do you know if there will be any betas for mobile versions?

    There is a beta for Android at least, according to this feedback.
    However, although my tester status is active, I can't get this beta update. Nobody else reported anything about this beta. Maybe it was released by accident and was quickly removed.

    What about update to PC version of BGEE and BG2EE?

    Yes, the update is planned, but it will take time.

    Is it possible to know at least vaguely what time frame are we talking about? About 2-3 months? 6 months?

  • GreenWarlockGreenWarlock Member Posts: 1,354
    A while back I asked when the existing v2.3 release might come to the Mac App store, and was told there would be no estimates of future shipping, as estimates are often mis-represented as promises by those who should know better. They were happier to make no assurrances, when explicitly asked, that this patch would take less than the 15 months the last one took between shipping, and arriving in the app store.

    We do know that the Mac App Store release is queued behind Android and iOS releases though, so we appear to have a low-bound estimate that may, or may not, be at least another 12 months away.

    Bring back the 1.3 patch, please.

    There have been multiple threads explaining why that will never happen. Have you tried explaining what exactly you don't like about the current patch? The devs read these forums.

  • JuliusBorisovJuliusBorisov Member, Administrator, Moderator, Developer Posts: 19,411
    @Rawgrim You can bring back the 1.3 version by opting the 1.3 beta on Steam.

    I don't play on Steam. I bought the game from your store. Making an unpatched version available for download, and individual patches available, would fix pretty much everything.

    Plenty of times.

    Look at GoG and Steam reviews and you (and the devs) will get a very clear picture of what people don't like about the newest patches. A lot of the negative reviews are actually centered on that.

    So, you personally have no specific issues with it you can raise here?

    01. The new sprites. They look like some cartoon characters copied and pasted onto the screen. They also really screw with my colour-blindness.
    02. Turning them off kind of works, but when I do I just get some extremely pixeled characters that look like crap. the way the characters looked in the 1.3 version was perfect.
    03. The new character screen\the whole layout looks like crap. I liked the old version better (the one I paid for).
    04. Pre-set tactics on each NPC. I know today's gaming is all about dumbing things down for casual gamers, but this bit is just kind of game-breaking. As soon as I recruit a companion he\she (if spellcaster) casts some spell on herself right away. Wasting a spell on nothing, really. That means I am forced to rest in order to get it back. Which again messes with a lot of quests you have a time limit to solve. Add a toggle for that crap, or remove it. As a gamer i want to play the game myself. Not just watch a game the devs have taken control of for me. the player is forced to just go in and remove the set tactic for each character all the time. If you forget to do it, you get the pleasure of watching your mage waste a high level spell on a single goblin etc.


    Probably the 50th time I bring this up, but there you go. I think Dee said they were working on a fix for the sprite\graphics issues, but that was half a year ago.

    Why is it so hard to just put up an unpatched game on your servers and just add separate patches for download, Beamdog? That is all it takes. Let your paying customers play the version they like. Options are never a bad thing.

    1, 2, and 4 are all fully customizable in options. There are also entire threads in UI Discussion for the sole purpose of voicing what we want changed in the UI in upcoming patches.

    #4 is fully customizable in the main screen. The button in the lower right with the lantern in it shuts of party AI completely.
