    No trailer on the NS store page? An odd choice. Still glad to see it release though :) Will pick it up some point when the price drops. 500 monies is a bit much

    how can I donwload an additional dubbing language on nintendo switch(BGEE) ?
    I got Polish language as a text language, but voice is in english
    I thought it was supposed to have those different language dubbing

    Same problem. Beamdog assured me on twitter, that there is full Polish localization on Switch, but I don't see any way to unlock this.

    Please report at https://beamdog.atlassian.net/servicedesk/customer/portals so that we could investigate.

    There was note at one of the polish site, that console SoD will have full text translation:

    Someone even asked publisher on facebook and he confirmed:

    It was highly unlikely, but we had small hope you ordered polish translation for console release (and maybe will release it in patch 2.6). But now we see it was a lie. I guess some people bought it, thinking all 3 games will be translated.

    @Etamin what you posted there is true but only about extensions, not about basic games
    basic games was supposed to have full Polish dubbing
    and cdp in a message above (fb) answered that the rest (bg1 & bg2) of course will have a polish dubbing
    so waiting for investigation

    Purchased and downloading now for PS4. So excited for this!

    Two questions:

    1. How well does multiplayer work, and is it cross platform?
    2. Will we be able to import custom portraits and/or other override custom content?
  • spacejawsspacejaws Member, Mobile Tester Posts: 373
    Just started BG1 and there is no multiplayer option. Not sure if I missed it.

    Also I'm on PS4 and prefer the tactical mode to the direct control but whats going on sometimes it just randomly drifts into the middle of the map and I can't make it stop.

    on box it is stated that additional languages are available via download(over 600Mb),
    but after some download (probably day one patch) still without polish dubbing,
    so maybe it is not yet available ?
  • twilektwilek Member Posts: 4
    Well, not available in PSN Store for people who lives in Austria, Bahrain, Belgium, Denmark, Finland, Kuwait, Lebanon, Luxembourg, Netherlands, Norway, Oman, Portugal, Qatar, Russia, Saudi Arabia, Spain, Sweden, Switzerland, Turkey, UAE, Ukraine :( (more info here https://blog.eu.playstation.com/2019/10/14/these-are-your-new-playstation-store-releases-this-week-15/) So since I live in Sweden I can't buy it unfortunately. Any plans to release it in the countries above?

    1. MP is not available. There are very had challenges to implement it, and we aimed for the ideal 1st playthrough when we developed the games for the launch.
    2. No, it is not possible on console.

    We are working on resolving the issue with Sony.

    Looks like the console/patch size limitations are to blame, this is why audio is different if compared to the PC version.

    I hope it will be fixed sooner than later. Do you know are there any steps towards fixing this issue? I didn't recive any reply after submitting this bug via Customer Support.
  • JuliusBorisovJuliusBorisov Member, Administrator, Moderator, Developer Posts: 22,133
    I think it's a bug that the voice is missing from BG1. We're still investigating (this is why we haven't replied to your Service Desk ticket yet).

    Hey...everyone. Two questions. How do I turn off Highlighting? At first it was working holding down X (on PS4) to turn it off and on but now it's just always on. Even started a new game and highlighting is on by default what did I do? I submitted a bug ticket.

    Also, how do I delete an exported character? Accidentally exported the same character 3 times and want to delete the two obsolete ones.

    An update on voice localizations for the console versions.

    These languages are available:

    English, French, and German in all games.
    Polish and Korean in BG:EE, BGII:EE, IWD:EE, and PST:EE.
    Italian in BG:EE, BGII:EE, SoD, and IWD:EE.
    Spanish and Russian in BG:EE, BGII:EE, and IWD:EE.
    Czech in BG:EE, IWD:EE, and PST:EE.
    Simplified Chinese in BG:EE and BGII:EE.
    Brazilian Portuguese and Ukrainian in BG:EE and SoD.
    Turkish in BG:EE and IWD:EE.
    Japanese and Hungarian in BG:EE.

    After a thorough investigation, we found that Baldur's Gate I & II on consoles contain Polish text translation, with Polish voice-over coming soon (for BG1, BG2, IWD & PST)! Siege of Dragonspear does not include Polish localization. Sorry for the inconvenience.

    Other VO will be added in an upcoming free DLC:

    French VO for:
    - BG I
    - IWD
    - PST
    Italian VO for:
    -BG II
    -IWD
    German VO for:
    -BG I
    -BG II
    - IWD
    - PST
    Russian VO for:
    - BG I
    Ukrainian VO for:
    - BG I

    @Tolek113 @Etamin @Hurricane

    @spacejaws

    There is a little red diamond icon you can click which will turn highlights/character names off (press X or square and press left to hover over it).

    Will follow up about the exported characters.

    I thought the v2.6 patch was going to be released alongside the console versions. Apparently that isn't the case?

    We're a small studio and QA resources are not vast. We'll get to 2.6 soon-ish after the first "hot" issues of the console version are fixed (like VO).

    @JuliusBorisov Damm I thought that was AI for individual party members. Guess I should read better. Any idea about deleting exported characters?
  • iRemol89iRemol89 Member Posts: 13
    Very important.
    Torment Switch - there is no Journal in Polish localization. Only blank box! I know the game by heart but Journal is crucial for new players !
    Also there are many glitches with Polish fonts on switch.

    As voice over is coming I have only one additional question :smile:
    How to change the visualization of HP to numbers not colors?

    From the main menu, select "Characters" > From the "Manage Characters" page, select the character you wish to remove and hit the square button.

    Did you really check your product before pricing it for 50€?
  • JuliusBorisovJuliusBorisov Member, Administrator, Moderator, Developer Posts: 22,133
    @iRemol89 We have seen this bug mentioned on our Service Desk and trying to reproduce the issue.

    Hello guys,

    I need some explanation about BG 2 EE on console and pc. I see that the game one console is avaible in french ( text and voice or just text for now ?) but the pc version don't support french. So i'm a little confused, if i buy a ps4 version, can i play in full french or not ? And if french is avaible on console why isn't it on pc ? ( i see there is a mode to have a partial french translation but not finish at this time)

    The French translation was finished for the console port. We're figuring out about making it available on PC as well.
