    I guess that makes sense. Thanks for the response. I started the long read and just finished the 6th page, wow. I'm still in September 2020 posts and so far, it's been a really good read. So many changes. Too bad Beamdog won't be a part of this endeavor. Hopefully, there will be much EE traffic in the OT section here so I can bounce some party ideas/questions off of players.

    Since it's December 2022 and still no EE, I can only imagine all the good stuff that will go into this game. I may have to rethink my second party attempt and wait for EE. My first one fizzled at the dragon in Chult. I killed the dragon once, but didn't make it to the portal in time because my mage died and I had to res him and pick up all his stuff. I didn't save after killing the dragon either. My IWD:C party was 1) 1/2 Orc Fighter 13. 2-Hander 2) Human Fighter 4/Paladin 9. 3) Dwarf Cleric of Helm 13. 4) Elf Cleric of Lethander 13. 5) Human Wizard 13. 6) Halfling Rogue 13.

    I wonder if my IWD and IWD:EE party will make it in IWD2:EE. 3 pally (no kit)(human), 2 cleric/mage (both 1/2 elf). 1 fighter/thief (halfling). That's my power group and it shreds.

    Here is a question. Hopefully it wasn't asked and answered after page 6. If so, I'll delete it.

    In IWD2:EE... Will loot still drop on the floor when a player character dies? It's a pain, even if you implement quick loot, to pick up loot and do an inventory management to make sure that everything is placed back where it was originally.

    For monsters, I don't mind. I am used to it from the earlier TSR games and the first 2 Diablos. If one good thing could be said about Diablo 3, at least that got that part right. Talk about a huge QOL improvement. It would be nice to see that in IWD2:EE as well.

    Can I get access to the IWD2 EE mod? I have been a huge fan for 20 years and would be honored to participate.

    I just learned of this endeavor and I gotta say I'm really looking forward to this! IWD2 is the only Infinity Engine game I haven't played yet.

    Hi, I apologise profusely to be the 999th person to ask!
    That said, if you're wanting more beta testers, then I'm interested!
    I'd love to provide proper feedback as well as to enjoy the game, too!
    Thanks for your consideration :-) My GitHub:

    Hi! Is it still possible to join the IWD2 EE mod? Here is my github - Thank you!

    Just a question - couldn´t barters (and items) be met more often? It seems to me, that I find/buy some +1 weapons/armours early in the game, then long time no update in inventory and then suddenly three barters with lot of way stronger stuff. More gradual improvement of drops / goods quality would help the to balance the game imho.

    if portraits for companions are a hang up for the mod, I'd be happy to help.
    That is, if you're looking for artists to do them.
    Here's my portfolio:
    I can't promise I can do many, but a few at least should be good fun.
    (I don't really use these forums, so the fastest way to contact me would be through email, as listed on my site)

    Sorry if this has been asked before, but if you have mods installed with IWD2, how will IWD2EE interact with them?
  • phurgawtinphurgawtin Member Posts: 2
    Requesting access to IWD2:EE beta test, and willing to give feedback, assuming you're still looking/willing for additional beta testers this far into development. No github account, but willing to make one if necessary for commenting / tracking of requests.

    Some notes on specific mods:

    Widescreen Mod - Unnecessary as IWD2EE already includes a way to set the game to a higher resolution (various options up to 1920x1080).

    IWD2-Ease - Most of the components are unnecessary because IWD2EE makes very similar changes, or are incompatible. The readme will have a list of which components are compatible.

    Almateria's IWD2 Fixpack - Should be compatible.

    Light of Selune - Should be compatible.

    Tactics4IWD2 - IWD2EE's Creature Revisions component already improves enemy AI and encounters, so this mod is probably unnecessary.

    NPCs - Should be compatible.

    @OlvynChuru Thanks, those have changed since early doors, so I'm glad I asked. I assume that we will need to install the EEFix first and then other mods?

    P.S. What about Tioma's Mods - Ammo Belts/Bottomless Bags, Sun/Wood Elves, Additional Cleric Domains?
  • ThorssonThorsson Member Posts: 190
    @OlvynChuru P.S. If the NPC part needs work, then I could possibly help. I've been reading fantasy books for a very (very) long time, playing computer games since they were on mainframes, D&D since the first boxed set. I've not done any creative writing, but I've written a lot of reports, including as expert witness to lawyers, plus I have had proof reading training and experience. I could probably do a voice over, if you want any with a British accent (I can do several).

    People are joining the Discord that includes the link to the beta download, if that's what you mean. It looks like when you requested access before, you didn't include a link to your Github account. You'll need to do that.

    Would be thrilled to join + test.

    Also, I've read about the Discord, but haven't found a link for it - and the current Beamdog forum search function is, well, limited...thanks in advance!

    Is this project still active? Wanted to check it since there is no official EE, but couldn't find discord server people were talking about earlier.

    Is there any way to install this other than Weidu installer? Like just a zip or something? Maybe somebody can DM me? The typical weidu installer takes me a godawful amount of time.
  • mledmled Member Posts: 46
    Will this be usable on (for example) linux ?
