    @BelegCuthalion Yes I explicitely did this for BG:EE without SoD as I though this thread is meant this way.
    SoD is treated as a DLC to BG:EE in Steam. For me, if I open the BG:EE in Steam, it lists SoD below with a link saying "Manage your DLC here". Going there I can "Manage your DLC" and there I can toggle "Enabled" which I deactivated to get only BG:EE.

    EDIT: Yes, for the BG:EE game in an SoD game, the German menue for creating a new PC is complete with text.

    @jastey thanks for the explanation how to get BG:EE without SOD.

    i can confirm the problem now:
    - disabled SOD in steam client
    - run BG:EE 2.6.0.0
    - Intro and main menu shows up (with sound and music)
    - Switch to german language and restart to be sure
    - Start single player, create a new game and character
    - first attempt: i made it to the gender choice (and could read the german description for it). next step showed only one character and the game crashed to windows (no dump message etc. here)
    - second attempt: crash at the gender choice, so it seems to be random?
    - load a save game of candlekeep created before with sod: crash while loading.
    - switch back to english: everything works fine
    - switch back to SOD: english and german works fine

    --> so this is only BG:EE german related (maybe other languages too?)


    @JuliusBorisov:
    which game version are we supposed to test?
    - BG:EE (Candlekeep)
    - BG:SOD (Candlekeep and/or SOD start dungeon)

    No. Same as above. Program fails to initiate and terminates itself automatically in a matter of seconds.

    I was unable to get to the start screen. (please explain)
    I installed the game via Steam and when I hit "start game" in the Steam App nothing happens.
    When I locate the "Baldur.exe" and try to start the game manualy, I get the following error code: "0xc000007b". (Screenshot attached)
    - The Massage stays the same with "BGEE" and "BGEE SOD".

    I never saw this kind of massage, but normaly I play via Legacy Installer / GoG, or Beamdog launcher.
    I have an EET installation installed via Beamdog Launcher and it runs like a Charm, so I guess, the error has something to do with Steam, or the Update.

    Im playing on a Notebook with 2 GPUs, one is the "Intel HD 630" and the other is the "Nvidia 1050ti".
    Maybe it has something to do with that combination. (I tried with both GPUs)

    Im running on Widows 10 64 bit professional, build 1909 (18363.959)
    My CPU is the "Intel 7700", 3,6 Ghz

    Out of it this morning, and I thought the thread said "Road to 2.8" for a few minutes. I was very confused.

    It doesn't make a difference whether SoD DLC is enabled or not.

    Downloaded and launched 2.6 without any issues. When starting a new game, the prologue text crawl ("Nestled atop the cliffs that rise from the Sword Coast...") has the text scroll by extremely quickly, a lot faster than I've noticed in previous versions and than what the voice can keep up with. Other than that I didn't notice any oddities.

    Do the graphics display correctly?
    Yes

    Do you hear sounds?
    Yes

    Does the music play?
    Yes

    Mostly yes, but there is no music in Candlekeep. After leaving Candlekeep, the music starts to play normally.

    >Does the music play?
    Yes, but not in Candlekeep for some reason. Seems to work everywhere else.

    Candlekeep doesn't have a music soundtrack in the prologue--this goes back to the original game. It does have a soundtrack when you return later in the game.

    To everyone still reporting "No music in Candlekeep.", This is the reason why if you are playing through the prologue. Please be specific reporting whether or not you hear music in Candlekeep after the prologue. Thank you for reading, and happy (healthy) gaming to all.

    Eventually the patch will come to all platforms but I don't know if the beta of the patch will be available on other platforms than Steam.

    I already asked that some days ago but haven't received a 100 % sure answer so far.
    I'd love to contribute but only own the GOG version as well.

    No. In fact, I cannot even download it (the download halts in about halfway and resuming the download doesn't do a thing, as it immediately halts again). It happens both with version 2.6 beta and with standard download, somehow.

    Basically, my game was heavily modded so I thought I'll re-install it so that mods wouldn't be a factor with 2.6 version. What ended up happening, I can't finish downloading neither 2.6 beta nor standard up-to-date versions.

    Hello again,
    I did the same with Baldur's Gate.
    Here you can see results.



    Objectives all of them accomplished.

    Only few information: The mouse button is allright, I think it's because of compresion of file has changed.
    But I don't know it's a bug or not but you can create default character by rejecting to import character file, and the throws of dice are not appearing automaticly you have to manage that sometimes.

    It's really great that you can see avatars in dialogues!

    This does sound odd. Delete game files manually, relaunch Steam maybe?

    Deleting the files manually doesn't work since there are no files in the folder while the game halts downloading:

    Relaunching Steam doesn't do a thing. Downloading the game in different languages isn't doing anything.
    I guess on the bright side this is a contribution to testing.
