when you all say "remaster" you mean remake using the PoE engine, right?  :dancing:

ONLY if they remaster the toolset too, or give us one to use as well as persistent worlds and being fully moddable. PoE was a fun game, but it gave me a week of enjoyment rather than ten years. 

 

But really, what would stop a remake using Pathfinder rules and tweaks to monsters (oops, we can't use mind flayers, let's replace them with X)? Just change out place names and maps. And then build the MotB and SoZ expansions. And Mysteries of Westgate. And... wow, this is actually kinda exhausting....

Can't find the discs ... you can borrow mine. I thought everyone's RPG hard stash looked like this.  ;)

Think a Beamdog dev made some comments about NWN/NWN2 remasters, and how they were basically impossible because of the Neverwinter MMO.  An MMO which they could have named anything else...

 

I'd be more interested in an Obsidian rpg, with a toolset, based on the Pathfider rules at this point.

After playing around with the NWN 1 Enhanced I need to bump this... so badly. I forgot how much I missed this game, the multiplayer and the building. I just walked around in a module (for a planned PW) I started building years ago and gave up after the Gamespy shutdown killed the last hope for getting players interested. It totally needs an enhanced edition, heck, just a bugfix Edition and reenabled multiplayer would be worth $20 to me. Please please please consider it, beloved favorite developer of all time, I'd be willing to kiss your feet even if you just gave the code to Beamdog or whoever is willing. ;(

I already own NWN2 on GOG. I really love it, but if given the option I would buy a remastered version of this in a heart beat.

The multiplayer does still work but you either need to direct connect or connect from your server history tab. You can also use the Skywing client extender which is recommended to reduce walk animation stuttering, the extension uses a new master server list. Beamdog also uses a new master server list for NWN EE which seems like it was made with the technology for the replacement list. In essence it functions equivalent to the list already available but is a separate list, some servers even broadcasted to both lists simultaneously.

 

The conclusion is that technically NWN2 already has a restored multiplayer but it's one that you can't pay extra money to use, but you can donate to the maintenance if you really want to pay someone.

 

The other argument is that a re-release would breath new life into the game by drawing new and old interest to it. This is somewhat true but it looks like for persistent worlds more people still play the old NWN rather than the enhanced one. There are various reasons for that but eventually servers will most likely all switch over, yet the total extra players seems to be somewhere around only 10% to 30% more than before the remaster got released. Most of the NWN EE players were already playing the old one but now they're divided into two halves. I think that's the best estimation for how much an NWN2 re-release will actually improve the multiplayer community.

 

My final conclusion is that a remake or re-release would be good for the NWN2 community and there are definitely some bugs and performance issues to fix but it shouldn't be a factor stopping you from enjoying the game or modding a server for it right now.

I'd buy an enhanced edition.

 

- Cleanup/Compatibility

- 64bit

- Camera Improvement

- Most of all for me: AI Improvements.  My companions run all over a map, through traps, passed enemies to get to other enemies like chickens with their heads off.
