I would love to have ToBEx officially updated and improved on.

 

It is an exceptional piece of software that could be made even better if some opcodes that are currently EE-only were to find their way into it. 

 

I do understand where skellytz is coming from and I do agree with him that this is a wonderful opportunity to inject new life into the classic Baldur's Gate games which I personally keep playing with no intention of "moving on" to EE.

 

Keep up the good work, Magus!

skellytz,

 

about the restored rare sounds, I'm personally unsure about whether they should be integrated into BGT core but I am pretty positive that it should either be both the Creature and Joinable NPC  or none.

That bug report is not giving enough information.

 

But speaking of TuTuGUI, I have some time ago made a test install and I must say that, BGT-wise, I do prefer my own take/version which is currently included in my local repository.

 

Ultimately it will be skellytz's choice to select one variant or another, of course.

I actually agree with you 100% about resolution, Kilivitz.

 

I do play my older games 4:3.

Kilivitz, I agree with skellytz' feedback about the new screens.

 

The "Trilogy" and "and" inside what looks like a heart don't belong to the image composition. 

We need internal consistency with both font and style.

 

My recommendation for BGT is the following:

 

For the main screen, go for the BGT Main Start, BG1-style background with two variations:

 

1) change the overemphasized "Trilogy" with something more subtle and consistent with the Baldur's Gate font/style above.

2) replace Shadow of Amn with Baldur's Gate so that the player's first selection is between Baldur's Gate and Throne of Bhaal

 

Then I would choose:

 

BGT (BG1 + SoA Start, new background) with two variations:

 

1) change the overemphasized "and" with something more subtle and consistent (same recommendation as above)

2) resize the three games names so that there is a better proportion because the way it is "Tales of the Sword Coast" takes as much space as Baldur's Gate and Shadows of Amn together

 

BG2/BGT (ToB Start, new background) with one variation:

 

1) change the "Throne of Bhaal" line color to match the "Baldur's Gate II" color and move it a little more down

 

Cheers!
