LF a mod to restore original spell animations

AlequeAleque Member Posts: 149

I am a bit of a puritan and conservative regarding old games, and therefore I am not so happy when it comes to implementing too many new elements into a classical gem like Baldur's Gate. I try to avoid any characters implemented by Beamdog. I have already managed to restore old 3D cinematics and even spell casting sounds.

However, I miss the original spell animations. Is there a mod or a way to restore them somehow?

Thanks for reading.

    If you have the non-ee old installation of baldurs gate or baldurs gate 2, you can find the .bam files for the spells and effects. Most are the ones that start with SP. For example, SPGREORB.Bam is the green orb projectile of the disintegrate spell, the new ee one is more shiny, the old one is more solid looking. By using WinBiff, you can rip those bam files from the old game. They are of lower quality and less fluid-transparent, if that's what you wish. Copying them to override of ee game should work, theoritically.
