    So... has the whole Atari mess affected the development of mods too? Haven't heard anything about BG1NPC since the takedown... :)

    @Shawne I wouldn't think so, unless the modders were using a beta of the unreleased patch to base their work on.

    Personally, I think the delay has to do with WeidU, and the lack of support for the new journal in bgee. Word has it though that a beta version of WeidU has been released that plays nicely with the bgee journal, so we may, hopefully be seeing some sort of update on the mod soon(tm)

    Well, here's me keeping my fingers crossed then. Waiting on this mod to be released is literally the one thing that has kept me from starting a BG:EE game

    ... it still needs a solid, uninterrupted chunk of time to finish. Fingers crossed I get that soon!

    Cancel your holiday! And in return I will cancel mine to play BGEE when the mod is done. ;-)

    In fact, we'll all cancel our holidays to play BG:EE. One holiday cancelled versus many hundreds. Surely, @Kaeloree, you get the far better part of the deal. Right? Right?

    Yep, there's no BG1 without BGNPC. Thanks for your work Kaeloree. Hope you will be able to work around all the journal issues somehow!

    Well, time for my weekly "How's progress progressing for this mod?" I bet @Kaeloree sees me as an annoying gnat by now lol

    he did say it wouldn't be long now in another thread I read over the weekend
  • kamuizinkamuizin Member Posts: 3,701
    This can take even longer cos if i'm not wrong the BG:EE path that is to come out doesn't solve the journal issue yet, so we will need to wait for even another future path without release date foreseen.

    i wish there was a dislike button for the comment above :/
  • kamuizinkamuizin Member Posts: 3,701
    Why? I don't like it to but it's the truth man! I'm just stating info i got here in this forum :(!
  • StoneSwordsStoneSwords Member Posts: 178
    I wasn't getting on you or anything, I just dislike the info lol, sorry if that came out wrong, it was meant as a joke

    @kamuizin I'm not sure what you're talking about -- the journal system has worked fine from release, it's just some of the existing journal entries that aren't working correctly. BG1NPC journal entries are done as of--last weekend, I think.

    Yes, but wasn't a journal issue holding the project back a while ago? A problem between the journal and moded changes on it?
    Kaeloree said:

    ...

    @kamuizin If you really, desperately want a percentage, I'd say roughly 95% of the work is done? Apart from rigorous testing and whatever bugfixing needs to happen after that. The journals are a major component, however, and they're a bigger issue than just BG1NPC -- a solution has to be found for all mods.

    Awesome news!!! So when the beta tests begin?
  • LiamEslerLiamEsler Member Posts: 1,859
    @kamuizin I'm gonna go with the usual 'SOOOOON', just in case.
