    I was surprised when I got an email about a post in this thread. I did not even know it was still going. :) I have been gone a very long time now. Good to see that people still enjoy it.

    If you count me resurfacing about 2 months ago... Yeah. ;)

    I've been toying with the idea of making a Baldur's Gate Total Conversion mod for ToEE...

    How are you going to do that? Don't they use completely different script? I heard something about Balder's Gate last month but I wasn't really paying attention lol. Well let me know if there is anyway I can help with anything.

    Yeah the scripting language is different, but the principles are basically the same, someone says something, or something happens, a flag is set, something else checks the flag to allow something else to happen. The first major difference is the maps, we need to remove all the openable doors from the maps.

    Man I don't even have ToEE anymore lol. Already have an idea for the new map? Sounds like a pretty big undertaking, what got you thinking about this?

    Baldur's Gate Enhanced Edition, the maps are from practically the same perspective as ToEE, decent quality artwork on the maps, most of the monster 3d models are represented in ToEE already, and BG still has a huge fan base. I figure if we convert Act 1 of BG to ToEE, and release a teaser version, maybe a few BG Modder's and other ToEE Modder's from yesteryear will come out of the woodwork and lend a hand to do the rest maybe.

    Well it's coming along. I have gotten over one major hurdle, converting some weird NPCs to ToEE glory (they're psions. Don't tell anyone). Real pain-in-the-ass, particularly since no-one will ever even notice, but they are all BAB / saves / hp compliant now. Something I have been fiddling with for a long time and have finally done.
