So... how long do you reckon before there is the PoE version of BG Tutu? (For those that don't know, tutu was a mod that ran BG1 in the BG2 engine).
Josh addressed this on SomethingAwful, and his answer looks like "a while." Seems like there's a lot of mechanical and under-the-hood changes, which would make running Pillars in the Pillars 2 engine... challenging.
(He might be underestimating the power of obsessive-compulsive modders though.)
