Re: Broken Hourglass

At the very least, when they realise how expensive a composer, a studio, a couple of artists and animators are, they will know that the actual game mechanics and design is only a fraction of the cost, even if it is important. While I appreciate the concern, I can reassure you that we have looked at...

BG2: Turnabout V1 Released

At long last, Turnabout, the table-turning add-on for WeiDU-Ascension, is released! The Turnabout mod adds a new wrinkle to the final fight in Throne of Bhaal, enabling the player to recall dead allies to aid in the battle. The player can choose from a collection of seven NPCs, including the PC's mo...

I wonder if this is actually anything to do with refresh rate. Some integrated graphics chipsets get along very poorly with BG2, particularly with 3D turned on. You can try playing it in a desktop window, but if that also makes it all smeary and weird, try turning off 3D.

There are still plenty of active discussion boards for the Black Isle games individually and together. This just happens not to be one of them.

Re: Questions for the learned.

Now that Interplay and Black Isle have been closed, I wonder where the new Baldur's Gate & Icewind Dale waterhole is, seeing that the Interplay forum was the largest forum. At least to my knowledge. I recently found this site and saw some familiar names; KC, Shodan and jcompton, who I remember from...

Keto was Blue's name for the character. It was actually a personal reference for her at the time. Obsolete for her, but still relevant to the character. :) You may discover that it's not even _really_ her name...

In my defense...

- I had nothing to do with Keto's red hair, the entire character concept was Blue's creation. I'm just finishing the thing off.

- Ghareth, my One-Day NPC(tm), doesn't have red hair.

Wanted: A voice for Keto

We're looking for a female actor to give Keto a voice. Keto is nothing if not chatty, so she will have well over one hundred voiced lines in Shadows of Amn alone. Willingness to reprise the role in a few months for the Throne Of Bhaal portion of the mod is also important. On Keto: Keto is a young wo...

Yes. It comes down to... well, mostly supply, really. There are more people interested in modding BG2 than people interested in modding IWD. Curiously, even some BG2 modders say "Gee, it's a shame more people aren't interested in modding IWD" but then they don't do it anyway. The script language dif...
