  1. I have found a solution! I'll explain it here so everyone who has a similar issue will know how to fix it. I checked my logs and saw some strange notifications stating that I wasn't using a 32 bit client. So basically I tried booting PoE with Win7 compatibility mode on. When I did that, I didn't get the White March DLC's and I suddenly saw my save I had installed before I got the DLC. This led me to believe that for some reason the DLC's weren't being friendly towards my 64 bit operating system. So, I uninstalled PoE and removed all my save games, both in appdate as in the mygames map. I r
  2. Alright, now my fix isn't even working anymore. I just bought the DLC's and haven't gotten to them yet..
  3. So everytime I reboot, the game can no longer find my saves. I thought that this might happend because I dual boot at times, but it happens even when I don't switch OS. This started happening when I got the expansion. When I try to start a new game and save it, it won't display these saves either. The only way to solve it is to completly reinstall the game. I have to redownload the game every time I want to play. When I do that, it will also suddenly display the new games I started before reinstalling. This is a very enfuriating and frustrating issue. Any suggestions on how to avoid th
  4. Is it just me or is the combat a lot more fun with a party of your own making? I know the Baldur's Gate also featured premade companions, but I felt like they were a lot more versatile and easy to work with. I'm nearing the end of my first playthrough and thinking of just ditching most companions for my second one.
  5. I really think you need to replay BG 1 and especially BG 2 if that's how you remember them. I don't this game deviates as much from the atmosphere in those games. Just going through BG 2 chronologically in my head I can remember A LOT of fairly disturbing quests. For example Imoen being tortured upto the point it completly breaks her doesn't do it for you? Anyways, I took the third option. I didn't play the Baldur's Gate series or PoE to go and save Unicorns from eating too many candy apples. Talk about dark, have you played planescape torment?
  6. I've read the Roxxor review and I disagree with most of what he said and I do think that his review is - as mentioned by Leferd - very vitriol upto the point that it comes across as unprofessional and unreasonable. I mostly disagree with him when it comes to the writing, I actually really enjoyed the writing. Also, to call BG 1 a mediocre version of BG 2 is just plain dumb and shortsighted. It was a different game with different strengths and weaknesses. I personally enjoyed BG 1 more than I did BG 2. The combat isn't as straightforward as he makes it out to be, but he does make some good poin
  7. First off, let me start off by saying that I very much enjoyed this game. I loved the writing and there were some very memorable moments - I loved the Sanitarium for example. I do think this point of yours offers some fair criticism. It made my own undertakings sometimes feel detached from my surroundings. However, this has been a gripe I've had with most - if not all cRPG's - including BG series - which offer this amount of freedom. The more freedom you offer a player, the more difficult it becomes to implement this. Even in TES games, this has proven very difficult and I'd even dare say that
  8. You're kind of allover the place with this, you've typed a lot while actually saying very little. I think you have urealistic and very narrow expectations of what kind of experience an isometric cRPG should provide. Immersion in these kind of games does not stem from it's realistic nature or mechanical autarky of your avatar, it comes through the story progression and adventures you set upon. Did you honestly play the Baldur's Gate and Icewind Dale series? Who in their right mind - atleast at proper difficulty - would send in their tank without buffing their entire party? Most of my time in th
  9. What really helped me was to use the IE mod and disable autosaves. Now with the 1.06 update I have to wait till they update the IE mod though. I think this should really be an ingame feature. Disabling autosave for some strange reason lowered my loading times from 30s-60s to only 10-20s.
