Icewind Dale 2 Enhanced Edition

Hi! Why isnt there an Enhanced Edition to the second game? Rights Problems? Technical Issues? I could provide the game discs if that would help.

    Rights issues aside, the source code and many of the game assets have been lost AFAIK. It's been discussed a lot here; in short it'll never happen.

    Basically what oakheart said, yeah. Through a series of unfortunate events, the source code for IWD2 seems to have been lost and nobody has been able to recover it. In THEORY you could reverse engineer the finished IWD2 game, but this would be like giving somebody the entire set of "Game of Thrones" novels and asking them to re-type everything back into a Word document by hand, only a couple of orders of magnitude more complex. At this stage there simply isn't the time or money to embark on such a costly project, so outside of the IWD2 EE fan-mod, seeing an official EE for IWD2 is probably never gonna happen.
