    Poor keyboard. What ever did it do to you?
  • JumboWheat01JumboWheat01 Member Posts: 968
    So from whatever we currently are straight to 2.4 that the BG series will have.

    If this holds true, I'll look forward to playing through IWD:EE with the graphical changes helping me along.

    I can't find the options to change the sprite outlines and the colour circles under the characters...
    ...is that because of the lack of patch 2.0?
  • JumboWheat01JumboWheat01 Member Posts: 968
    Yes, that was something introduced in the BG 2.0 patches. When the next big patch hits Icewind Dale, we'll most likely get those features.

    It may sound unusual, but regarding the Icewind Dale EE 1.4 on Windows, I find it quite good in the current stage. The new UI from BGEE 2.x and the way the characters look in that version is not something I would want in Icewind Dale EE.

    Call me old school if you want but I kept a BG1EE / BG2EE pre-2.x patch kit for playing and recently I also downloaded the Icewind Dale EE 1.4 from my GOG account just in case something goes wrong after the 2.x patch for Icewind Dale EE is released.

    I kinda want to try out the Shaman class in IWD though. If they add it in properly that's a perfect class for the frozen north!

    Hmm, sounds like they still have a ways to go. Kind of torn: while I'm happy that these games are still getting patches and features years after launch, the length of time between launch and final state is getting to be a bit much. I generally stick up for Beamdog, but not being able to even guess whether 2.4 is coming this quarter, next quarter, or even this year is frustrating. The developer has been around long enough that it should be able to offer approximate ETAs on products and patches even if they have to include a 2-6 month margin of error.

    Unless those gamergate fanatics who review-bombed SoD did more damage to the company than I thought, in which case I sympathize. But even then, more transparency would be nice.

    I'll probably prefer the class in IWD over BG, ironically. I feel ya.

    Thing is I set myself with the mindset that mobile platforms are in a state of abandonment and just added my own fixes. Pain in the arse. Obviously not everyone can make there own fixes and surely beamdog must embarrassed to take people's money and not deliver what's expected from a gaming company in the 21st century.

    I've even put my main mod I'm making on hold due to updates not happening considering I mainly play or used to on android devices. Only game I have left installed currently is BG2.

    This may be just me, but I always considered 1.3/1.4 to be final state. Its the closest to the original in form and function, and is far more stable than the original games ever were. I consider 2.0 and up to be gravy.

    For me, 2.0 is mostly needed because of dual wield switch option. Tis really sad that my Elf ranger can not use bow and scimitars at the same time :smile:

    I'm not sure I understand. These things are being posted in the IWDEE forum. IWDEE 1.4 is a stable, playable game which (as far as I know) includes everything the developer intended it to include, and everything players have wanted it to include. What about it is not in its "final state?" In what way is Beamdog "taking people's money and not delivering what's expected?"

    Please understand, that is not argument, or rhetorical, or snark. I'm not understanding those posts and seeking clarification.

    IWDEE 1.4:
    - Includes the entirety of the game
    - Plays very well
    - Is very stable
    - Way, way after it was released in this state, Apple is changing their operating system in a way that will harm the usability of the app. Instead of letting things lie, Beamdog is working ahead of time to adapt the game and ensure it will work well into the future. As of now, it seems like there may not be any interruption at all, which is kind of impressive given that Apple sprung this on them while they were in the midst of a different, major product development.

    Maybe those posts were not communicated well, or maybe I'm missing something or just dense. But what, exactly, is the perceived problem here?

    Seems to me this pretty much sums it up.
    I'm pretty sure that I remember the developers promising feature parity - which is mainly what I'm referring to - although I could be wrong. IWD is (mostly) good to go in terms of bugs and stability, but I've gotten so used to the integral new BG features that their absence seems glaring whenever I revisit it. I suppose that's what I mean when I say "finished state," though that was a poor/imprecise choice of words.

    As I said, I'm a fan of Beamdog, but I think the point still stands re: ETAs and transparency. By now, even an extremely rough ETA with multiple revisions would be welcome.
