If you read the past bajillion pages, you'll see that people's issues with the EE are a bit more complicated (some are even valid!) than "updat3d 3ng1n BAD! ME SMASH!".

Oh yes, I've read everything in this thread and still my impression is - people are just afraid of something new.
All right, only a couple of days left for everyone to know if BGEE is worth it.

Sounds like it only applies to the Android/Mac versions of the game.

That's the pre-load; you won't actually be able to play until tomorrow. :)

but I preloaded it already a couple days ago when they sent the email that you could pre-load? And it looks different now, it says launch not pre-load but you are probably right

It could be an update, I think there's been one in the meantime :) If it's playable, let us know!

6.5 hours till 8pm UK, hopefully this will mean a revival to the modding community as well.

Hell, I may even learn to mod!

Let me sum up the changes for modding (as far as I understood):

A) Skripting updated to ToB-Level.
B) Some Fixes and Mods included.
C) GUI can be modded.

A) can be done by using BGT, B by installing bg2fixpack, tobex and so on and for C) ... I like the BG2-GUI.

So for me there is no mind-boggeling reason why so many people would start to mod if you still have more or less the same scripting and are in need of edit textfiles and a bunch of WeiDU-Fu. I also guess that most guys that will buy the game did so before, since if you like RPG, it's unlikely that you would have missed that one game and run through it now and start to think: Wow , this game needs some modding. I'd also dare to say that if you like to play with a game editor, other games like NWN or so (which ship with one) may be more attractive. If it will be that way, I'd guess that a lot of them could be modified to be used in the "older" versions of the game.

Don't get me wrong, it will not hurt for EE to come out and all, but I don't see the big impact for modding.
THINK! - It's not illegal.

Nobody's going to spoiler tag a 15 year old game. Incidentally, Rosebud was his sled

2 minutes into the game and I found two bugs. Sigh. Incompetence.

The new THAC0 counter on the inventory screen (and redundantly also on the character record screen) doesn't really work. I equipped a shortsword and it showed correctly as 19, then some Darts and it shows at 20 instead of 17. More weirdly, Mage has been replaced by "Transmuter" on all weapon item pages....weapon not useable by Cleric/Transmuter etc. Both superficial bugs but then I only just arrived at the Inn in Candlekeep so....bodes well.
