  1. So how do you search for the bug reports associated with each fix in the list you provided (if I was after more details)? Searching the supplied bracketed numbers doesn't seem to yield appropriate results at

  2. I have received the update on steam, but the Shaman class is missing from the list during character creation. What should I do to get it?

  3. Sounds like a lot of work has gone in to this patch to polish up IWD, especially on iOS devices. Great job, Beamdog! I eagerly await the official release of the 2.5 patch for BGEE and BG2EE! Keep up the great work!

  4. can we get a link to go ahead and download the patch?

  5. Is it savegame compatible with the previous versions?

  6. Greetings.
    Thank You for 2.5!
    Been waiting long.
    What about 2.5 for IOS?
    Any specific dates information?

  7. Box version of IWD EE never got any pacth, update etc. It's little sad. U can buy game but never got updates. If U want updates U need to buy it again on steam and drop to trash box version.

    1. You can update your boxed version of the game by following the steps here: :)

  8. I got box version with no key to steam or enything else. How to update it ? i got version 1.4

    1. Find out how here: :)

  9. lo mejor es que an quitado poder modificar el grupo de la historia asi que si quieres cambiar 1 personaje toca empezar de 0 cosa que en origianl no pasaba .
    la IA solo funciona la parte fisica , como cuerpo a cuerpo o a distancia , la Ia de lanzamiento de conjuros no va , igual tienes 1 personaje con 1 de vida y los clerigos no van a curarlo y si tengo activada la ia y la biografia que curen y nada , rara ves tiran 1 conjuro curativo.igual con los magos etc...
