Baldur's Gate - whole series for ten quid

I liked the Severed Hand better :dancing:

IWD? Lower Dorns Deep was excellent. I like old dwarf cities and places. Severed Hand came in second for IWD.

I think that the way you had to get inside Durlag's story really forced you to appreciate it.

Thanks for suggestions, folks, I might look into BG1+mods. :)

If you want to play stock BG1 with non-tutu mods, I recommend Echon's Fields of the Dead mod for vanilla BG1. It brings the game closer to pnp rules, improves monster AI, adds a new area north of the farms outside Baldur's Gate, adds new spells, and a host of other things. He's considering making his mod tutu-compatible, but that likely won't happen for awhile.

 

Tutu's a good mod, and it'll be even better once the BG1 fixpack is mature. The idea is to install the fixpack on vanilla BG1, to fix the hundreds of mostly minor bugs in the game's data, then run the tutu converter. The result will be an overall better experience while running BG1Tutu.

The problem with FotD is it isn't mod friendly with other mods, from what I read at various message boards.

I'll have you know that you swines have nearly convinced me to play it again Which would be disastrous for my scheduling.

I have just arrived in the city of Baldur's Gate again and it feels great to be back. Despite the horrible journal, the non-existent questlog and the thin storyline I'm having an absolute blast. I love all of the IE games and probably couldn't exist without them ... :)

 

Oh, BTW - I found a better offer:

 

Baldur's Gate Compilation ₤ 9.99 DELIVERED

 

Icewind Dale Compilation ₤ 9.99 DELIVERED

 

Sorry, couldn't resist ... :thumbsup:

BG1 is much improved with BGTutu, as others have said, but it's not just the engine - the BG1NPC pack adds a lot of banters and romances of the kind that many enjoyed in BG2. I can't imagine playing BG1 without it, now - it would be too quiet. It's especially rewarding if you keep Imoen around, as she has a lot to say. I also recommend the Finch mod, also for Tutu. Librarians are cool! :)

Being someone who played the series backwards from BG2 to the original, I never actually played vanilla BG1 for more than 10 minutes. I too, have enjoyed the benefits of tutu and the banter pack.

 

In fact I remember talking about the quality of said banter pack a few months back when I was playing the game... I had said I couldn't even tell which banters were Bio-made and which were added with the mod, intending to commend the quality of the modders' work. Someone, Deraldin maybe, pointed out that if there was a banter at all, it was probably from the mod.

 

Never did play Finch though... next time, next time.

Does BGtutu enable the ability to play the Wild Mage in Baldur's Gate?

I believe so. It allowed me to play as a monk.
