A rush job. Affects only the main gamplay window.
I need someone to test it at very high resolution.

I don't have time now to write proper description, sorry.

Works great at higher resolutions from what I can see. :) Fantastic work! You should absolutely post a link to this on the BG:EE forums.

This looks great! Thank you for doing this.

I don't really fancy EE's default GUI, it's somehow cartoonishy, the same way I didn't like the new intro (where Sarevok is being awesome). I'm yet to see other cutscenes and if I'll enjoy them more.

Where do the files go? Can some kind soul help? I cant find the corresponding files on my default BG:EE installation.

This looks fantastic. A testament to your abilities, and also to the (apparent) ease with which the GUI can be reskinned. Nice work!

Just Awesome, now it is at least not necessary any more to view that horrible ugly blue EE Gui.. Hopefully the other screens will also be covered with that one at some future point :)

Create an "override" folder in your BG:EE directory folder, then copy the files into that new folder.

OT: It doesn't work perfectly, as you can tell by the screenshot. Instead of an empty spot after F4 and F8, we have two empty spots after F6. Quickslots/weapon slots/spell spots also seem to have a blue tinge to them. Regardless, yay! :D

Erhm, the thing you refer as F4... F8 works perfectly, see there's was those in the old game too, if the gui had nothing to display.
The only minor issue I have is with the edges of the dialog box, the stylistic spots are fine. Posted Image These, but they need to be on a set distances, they unfortunately turn not to go so well in there...
And what ever they did, they turn this corner to go bad:

I did not contest that they did not work, but rather implied the fact that having two spaces together like it is looks visually worse than having one empty space between each block of four. That is, of course, an opinion.

(edit) And I see that I am blind, because it's actually F7, not F6. Which is even worse, for me, (but irrelevant). :D

How are you getting the resolution to be at such a high DPI? I'm playing fullscreen with my desktop resolution of 1920x1200 and my in-game UI isn't as crisp as the image you're showing. Look at the % of the game screen your UI mod takes up:

And when I install the mod and play at a higher resolution (fullscreen):

Any idea what's up?

Thanks, the blue tint seemed really out of place.

You failed... to notice that Kwait-W picture size is far smaller, apparently the game uses different GUI's for different resolutions... like it always did in the originally unsupported resolutions too, in there it failed for huge number of reasons like crashing but also in that the GUI's resolution was bad because the images were just resized to be bigger.
