A couple questions (mid-game in Icewind Dale)
Hi there, last year I played through BG 1, 2 & Dragonspear and was an instant convert - so when Icewind Dale came on sale a week ago I immediately picked it up. I have a couple quick questions regarding the game, as I've noticed it differs in one or two respects from the BG series:
Firstly, if you take the 'recommended' party at the beginning (I didn't) do the party members talk amongst themselves? Something that I've found missing from this game is the character interaction 'Run Booooo run!', and it doesn't seem that you can recruit new party members in taverns etc. as in the BG series?
Does the Party AI button work properly in this game? In the BG:EE series party members (with AI on) would automatically begin attacking new enemies and even cast spells (stoneskin, the odd magic missile etc.) but in this game I sometimes find my tank and other party members standing still while attacked from all sides, so I have to micro manage every single mob, which can be tedious. Is this a bug? Or a deliberate change of the AI mechanic?
