    Thank you folks for making the effort of bringing the 2.6 patch to Android at last!

    On PC there are so many other great games to compete for our free time that I find myself turning to other games I haven't played yet more than replaying known games, but on tablet good RPGs (especially without ads and in-app-purchases around every corner) are still a rarity, so that the BG series stands out and makes it more likely for me to start another run in situations where PC is not on option.

    So thanks again people, and happy holidays!

    I know I repeat myself, but when we can expect thing to move on the ios side too? Hope it won't take 6-12 months to release it there as we also patiently are waiting for 2.6 for quite some time and no beta for us.

    The iOS version is being worked on. More news as we have it.

    Hello @JuliusBorisov

    Is there any news regarding the 2.6 iOS release? I’ve been checking intermittently since the start of the year, and I don’t think I’ve seen any updates. Hopefully there’s something soon to come…?

    Thanks!

    Hi! I'm so sorry that there hasn't been any news about this. The state is still the same: we have people working on it, and there are programming obstacles, unfortunately.

    Thank you for the update. Fingers crossed those obstacles can be overcome!

    when version 2.6 for iOS will be completed will it also have full native support for Mac with M series processor with keyboard and mouse use?

    Sorry, this would be outside of our available resources. Our apps are designed to work on iOS, and checking if the iOS app works on a Mac would require more effort than we can allow ourselves.

    Are there anty news about Baldur’s Gate Saga (1 sod 2) native on Mac with Apple silicon. Now they should work under Rosetta2, but Rosetta 2 like Rosetta is’t eternal.

    The actual release for iOS works (just not so well) on new Mac models. Save errors, wrong screen resolution, but the ARM code is quite good. So the EFFORT should be non so great...
    New macs ad new iOS devices are growing, and Rosetta2 is vanishing...
