    I guess that people will start asking for the next patch in less than a week :p

    Why wait a week?

    Where is the next patch?

    :p

    Always great to see new patches and a ton of accompanying fixes! While the Infinity Engine has always been buggy, we've got to be getting close to a perfect version, eh? :p

    Also, forgive me if this has been discussed elsewhere -
    Will BG2:EE get an additional update to bring its version number inline with BG:EE and IWD:EE, (v2.5.17.0)? Or will it stay at v2.5.15.6 for the time being?

    noticed problem in this new update the game presents a strong slowness after the dialogs of history and save, I do not know if other members had this problem in BG:EE.
    I do not know if there is something in the game log but I'll check it out and post it here in the forum

    Trying to update through the Beamdog client, and while BGee and IWD have updated fine, SoD will not update. And every attempt I get the message, "An internal error has occurred. If you notice repeated issues, please contact Beamdog support." Restarting the client doesn't help either.

    Odd. I'm having a similar issue. I got the updates for SoD and IWDEE, but BGEE refuses to update. It reports 2.3.67.3 as the current version. Beamdog client.

    Yes, sorry. On the Beamdog Client, BG:EE & SoD aren't showing the update as available on Mac, and BG:EE isn't showing at all on Linux. We're working on it.

    Remove unused VO


    OH CRAP!!!!! @JuliusBorisov is there a way to download SoD v2.3.67.3 still? SoD v2.5 just killed my JaheiraRecast mod!
  • ThacoBellThacoBell Member Posts: 12,235
    I've tried verifying my game files instead of direct update, and now SoD is downloading almost 2GB, so maybe its pulling the update now.

    This patch has rendered my game un-playable! My main character (and Dorn for some reason) cannot move properly. You tell them to go someplace and it takes them forever to get there! My main character does a stop go stop go stop go kind of chicken dance, and Dorn just stops moving completely. WTF Beamdog?!?!?!?!? Also, the in game mouse cursor keeps blinking at the same rate as my main character's chicken dance!
  • ThacoBellThacoBell Member Posts: 12,235
    Okay, that seems to have worked.

    @steamingdragon Are you loading up a save from the previous version? They may not be compatible.

    Thanks for all the fixes guys, we really do appreciate all of the work you put into these games. A couple of things:

    -How about releasing some DLC for the IE games now so we can support you guys with some cash? I hear there's a particular storyline involving a certain dagger that needs resolution in BGII... I would also just be happy if you released small DLCs like more portrait packs, new characters, mini expansions, etc. I really do appreciate all the work done on these games, and I would like to keep supporting you guys.

    -Any word on fixing the audio issues in BGII? I added it to Redmine as a feature request, since I wasn't sure if it was a bug or not, but it seems like a pretty big deal to a lot of people. This is the one I'm asking about: https://support.baldursgate.com/issues/26150

    Thanks again guys! Keep up the great work!

    @steamingdragon - It appears that a change of variable scope has created a potential stutter bug for Dorn when loading an old save on the updated game. If this is the same issue, @Bubb posted a solution to the problem here:

    I'm having a gameplay problem as well and besides, loading slow to other scenarios and the game is not saving automatically, and the artificial intelligence is suffering a little too many dialogues do not happen I need to force the dialogue with the character

    Very nice :) Saw all these emails this morning saying my Issues were being fixed. Nice to see Beamdog is still patching!

    Thankyou Beamdog!

    Please could someone post a screenshot of the new Area of Effect Indicator from IWD?
    Is it different for radial (fireball) and conic (burning hands/cone of cold) spells?
  • GreenWarlockGreenWarlock Member Posts: 1,354
    I see no mention of the Mac App Store updates. Do we know if they are more likely to be days, weeks, months, or years(?!) away from delivery to Apple for validation?

    Thanks; how did you import into BG2EE?

    Thanks; how did you import into BG2EE?

    The same way that you activate it for IWDEE. Add SetPrivateProfileString('Game Options','Show AOE','1') into the Baldur.lua file.

    @kungfuhobbit The setting given in the IWDEE news update is working in BG2EE and BGEE too.
    @argent77 mentionned it was present in BG2EE here and his mod Hidden options (linked topic) has a menu option to activate the feature.

    IIRC Trent and Phil said it should be rolled out for Mac App Store next week during the latest stream.

    That's disappointing, I was getting ready to throw a birthday party for the last BGEE patch being 4 years old on 9th September ;). Guess I'll have to settle for new gameplay and bug fixes instead!

    Nice to see things still corrected and added, it seems however my game has lost the "faces of good & evil" portraits. My steam install in unmodded.

    And "Make 3 new portraits from "The Road to v2.0 Reward" official to the base game of BG:EE"

    They don't show up, maybe these package are interfering?

    While I very much welcome the patch, I was on a modded playthrough, nearing end-game, and of course Steam auto updates... Can I roll back to the previous version for a little while? And would that correct the errors i'm having?

    This. So much this. I'd pay US$ 14.99 for M'khiin to be ported to BGee and BG2ee along with a minimal quest in each game.

    M'khiin is a truly unique NPC with a unique perspective. Not comic relief like fellow short arses Tiax, Quayle, Glint, Deekin. Not broody elite like Kivan. She's broody because she has every reason to be, and no reason to trust humankind or goblinkind. There is so much potential there. Capitalize on it!

    Is it me or the GoG version is still on 2.3 ?
  • argent77argent77 Member Posts: 3,174
    Is it just me or is the level up portrait icon missing whenever a party member is ready to level up in a BGEE+SoD game installed by the Beamdog client? It works correctly for the same game (same patch version) installed by the Steam client. Can anyone confirm?
