Hey Stanley that sounds great - when do you think you'll have it ready?


Best of luck with such an ambitious project - and let me know if you
need any beta testers.

All the best,

I think he wants a module with Baldur's Gate 1 & 2 scenario to play, not
trying to make one :) 

It would be great if somebody did a module or campaign with the original
scenario of BG 1 & 2. But, Stanley my friend, modules with that kind of
complexity can't be made in a couple of nights ;)

And in addition to that you might get into real trouble with the
distributers of the games concerning license stuff because you can still
buy both titles.

Possibly. Possibly not. Atari is now the sole distributor of D&D-based
games, and both BG1 and BG2 are discount rack games (the full BG2 +
Throne of Bhaal expansion is $20 new, I don't think you can even buy BG1
new any more). Though Atari is the distributor, WotC (Hasbro) owns the
D&D license and anything produced for D&D is, more or less, theirs. And
WotC has pretty much given free reign to the NWN community to produce
NWN versions of any module--including print, older CRPGs, etc. There's
tons of copyrighted material being used as the basis for modules: Pool
of Radiance, Temple of Elemental Evil, etc. (Someone's even produced a
Diablo re-creation, which is not D&D, and suffered no consequences, AFAICT.)

I think you can still find BG/Tales for $20 as well, at places like
GameStop.

I'm not sure if Atari is involved in the games which originally were
published by Interplay, because a few weeks ago a "Black Isle
Compilation II" appeared in the stores in Germany. The box
contains BG1 + ToSC, BG2 + ToB, IWD 1 + HoW, and IWD 2 for a price of 30
EUR.

It shows the Bioware, Black Isle, and WotC logos, but nothing
from Atari.

I might try it but just now studying the script language... I was just kind
of putting the idea out there for somebody ... but if no one else does it, I
might just make a greater BG 1&2 campaign module... but I'll need help.. I
may need to borrow bg items from other mods... and heads... and maybe my
friends can help...

I realize that it would take time.. but I'm willing to help as much as I
can... maybe do some work on it... I'm new to the module making and the
script language... it looks a little like c language...

various quests in it....

Infogrames (the original publisher of NWN) bought Interplay and Black
Isle, both of which went bankrupt, and they "merged" with Atari and
changed their name. Everything D&D is now put out by Atari (neê Infogrames).

If so, it's a copy that's been sitting in inventory for a long time and
you shouldn't pay $20 for it. :)  Online, Gamestop, EBGames, et. al. only
sell the BG2 collection. You can, of course, find still-shrinkwrapped
copies of the BG collection on eBay, Amazon.com Shops, etc.

Actually, noticed on NWVault last night there is a BG persistent world.
You should check it out.

I might be wrong, it might be $9.99. I'll check next time, just out of
curiosity.

Most of the development of NWN was done with Interplay as the planned
publisher. Things began to change when Hasbro took over WotC, and the
final result was a deal between Bioware and Interplay, where Interplay
got the rights over the "old" Infinity Engine, and Infogames became the
new publisher of NWN. This happened only six months before NWN went
gold, and is IMO one of the reasons why the OC looks a little
unfinished.

On the other side, more than 50% of the Interplay shares were bought up
by Titus Interactive, also a French company, in 2003. Last week I got
some news, telling that Titus is broken down finally too now, and noboby
knows what will happen to the remains of Interplay. Infogames/Atari
wasn't mentioned at all there.

No they didn't. Black Isle remains a unit of Interplay, and Interplay remains a unit of Titus. Yes, Titus
and Interplay are in dire financial straits, but they are not owned by Atari.

the only ones I saw went to beregost, gnoll stronghold and bandit camp... no
nashkell and no cloakwood... if we came together and laid out a general
plan for dividing bg1 and bg2 into smaller campaign modules and different
people could work on different parts... or at least different parts of huge
module..
