Hi, I have recently purchased Baldur's Gate I&II Enhanced Edition and I have to say that the technical editions and new options are great and much of it, like the multi coloured circles, make gameplay easier. However, I was originally not going to purchase these games because of the narrative changes and editions that have been made and only did so in order to get the originals.
I have seen mostly positive reviews of Icewind Dale: Enhanced Edition and Planescape Torment: Enhanced Edition and one of the of the things that tend to be seen as positive with these games, and I agree, is that they don't contain any narrative content that isn't original. For example new areas, characters and stories.
This is one of the chief criticisms that have been levelled at Baldur's Gate: Enhanced Edition and Baldur's Gate II: Enhanced Edition.
My suggestion would be to release an update that gives an option to remove these new characters, areas and other narrative changes from the core game and to make them available as optional DLC. I think this would go very well with the fans, myself included.
I don't quite understand why the old character models from the original games can't be used. Since the original games are still being sold can't those art assets be carried over? This is just me hoping since I really like those old sprites, spell effects and sound effects from Baldur's Gate and Icewind Dale. The only way to enjoy those now is to play the original Baldur's Gate since the Heart of Winter expansion completely removes them even from the original Icewind Dale.
If you add in an option to use the old effects then they could also be made available for Balur's Gate II: Enhanced Edition which would be a nice novel experience.
I have yet to purchase the Icewind Dale and Planescape Torment Enhanced Editions but I am looking forward to doing so.
Also, thank you for selling your games DRM-free!
