The post release chat log of Temple of Elemental Evil, where Troika said things like this:


[Exitium] [Mearas] Besides removing the kids, has the game been altered in any other signigicant way as a result of switching ratings?
[TimCain] Yes. Several dialogs and quests were removed entirely, as were some characters.
[[Troika]Tom] One whole map with side quests, the brothel in Nulb, was removed
[ReAnimator] ouch!
[TimCain] Plus, Tom said some bad words in a few dialogs...
[TimCain] :)
[[troika]hnguyen] :)
[[Troika]Steve] Code was generally untouched for the censors, so I had smooth sailing.
[[troika]hnguyen] i wish the bad words were still in :(
[TimCain] Also, you will notice that Dick Rentsch is now just Rentsch
[[Troika]Tom] Tim used a bad word once, too!
[TimCain] I did?
[ReAnimator] I had to cover up some private areas on some models
[[Troika]Steve] Because Richard is such a horrible name to name someone.
[[troika]hnguyen] LOL
* TimCain says "Done"

I want the naughty bits back!

Who's Reanimator?

Oh, and forced T ratings suck. Why couldn't they leave Richard in? That's worse than the whole "niggardly" flap.

I hope to god that Troika never does any business with Atari ever again. ToEE is a POS that had a lot of potential of being good.

Dammit, can there be at least 1 CRPG be worth buying this year for the PC by the big boys or are we just going to continue to get crap?

That's why I replied to your statement on not buying shareware CRPGs with, That sounds like a personal issue. I like ToEE, but games like Prelude to Darkness and Geneforge top it in most areas that aren't graphics and sound related.
