    It would be a happy side-effect if this release causes the BGT community to incorporate the EEs.

    already in the works, it's called EET. from the readme:

    according to k4thos (author of EET) it still might take some time until it's ready to be released as a proper beta version Link

    Thanks zero29, I was looking in the SHS forums.


    edit: do you know K4thos's work? What I'm getting at is: is this essentially vapourware? After the BGT: EE thread on SHS, I'm feeling cynical about a release.

    no idea really. i usually get my infos about bg mods from the kerzenburg forums. the modder white agnus made a thread there to get a german translation for EET on its way, so i guess that there has to be at least some kind of progress. all in all EET seems to be handled like an open secret everywhere, make of that what you want ;)

    I wonder if Beamdog can produce their RPG on the level of PoE.

    Possibly even better, since they have the best setting in the world to back them up.

    But their writing is apparently produced by a 7th grader on a Nutella crash.

    I'm so glad that now I can play POE instead of pretending to give even a shred of care about this crap.

    If only the modders they hired would leave and make something cool.

    While I can agree that Beamdog added content to BG1EE was not good it does not mean they cannot learn. BG2EE content was better, maybe it gets better still.

    Unlikely. The modders working with them made their best stuff prior to joining, brave aVENGER's Rogue Rebalancing among them. They're not even active enough in the modding community, since any work they do now is owned by Beamdog. That's why so many awesome mods just stopped dead 2 years ago, right at the time they started paying off modders like Erephine.

    Do they plan to sell this as a stand alone game?
    And how many hours do they expect this game to have since we know they cannot overlevel the characters for BG2.
