Development didn't stop, just halted.

There was a good deal of improvement with rendering vvc's both stationary and moving with actors.


I've noticed a major update, was it what you mentioned above?

Yes, and a bit more.

There is a partial implementation of combat. (1/3 done).


You can test the new improvements with custom items, like a sanctuary ring.


Hmm... I am watching the progress with no hope you ever make it real or if so there will be just only a few of us still interested in it... To be honest the auditory decreases right now one by one... Haven't you ever thought to simulate most important functions (like increasing animo' slots, 3D&D rules and so on) on existing BG2 engine with the apllication similar to IWG? Was it even possible?


And how about creating alternative to TIS file - BMPs are too large I believe - couldn'd this alternate TIS read compressed JPG? The loss of quality is rather symbolical.

You complain that the progress is slow, ask for new features not existing in the original engine while not offering any help.


JPG is obviously a no as it is a patented format.


Increasing animation slots is already done, by the way.

Inventory is also customisable.

3rd ruleset is problematic, i think we cannot hardcode it without running into trouble.
