November 09 Livestream Recap


“A few cards from the Input Trello board will be moved to the Roadmap pretty soon!” ~ Luke
Today Beamdog CEO Trent Oster and Producer Luke Rideout shared the latest Infinity Engine and Neverwinter Nights: Enhanced Edition news. They went through the current NWN:EE Roadmap, and talked about the upcoming open Beta of Neverwinter Nights: Enhanced Edition on Android.

Missed the stream? It's on YouTube and Twitch! Here's a quick summary of the highlights:

“Neverwinter Nights: Enhanced Edition on Android works surprisingly well!” ~ Luke. “And it’s pretty amazing to watch!” ~ Trent
  • The 2.6 patch for Baldur’s Gate: Enhanced Edition, Baldur’s Gate II: Enhanced Edition, Baldur’s Gate: Siege of Dragonspear, and Icewind Dale: Enhanced Edition is moving forward quickly.
  • The Dice, Camera, Action! Voice and Portrait Pack is nearly finished! We expect you’ll be able to play with the portraits and voices of Strix, Evelyn, Diath, or Paultin in the near future!
  • The Ukrainian localization of Baldur’s Gate: Siege of Dragonspear is currently 98%-complete. If it’s finished in time, we’ll include it in the 2.6 patch.
“We have some goofy stuff planned for the 20th anniversary of Baldur’s Gate!” ~ Trent
  • The NWSync feature is available in the Development Build of Neverwinter Nights: Enhanced Edition. Opt into the Development Build on the Beamdog Client or Steam, and share your feedback at our forums!
  • We have successfully increased the bone count limit in Neverwinter Nights: Enhanced Edition to 82 in an internal build, but there are a few bugs we need to fix before rolling the feature out to the public.
  • Cam is working on a big rendering system rewrite for Neverwinter Nights: Enhanced Edition.
  • In Neverwinter Nights: Enhanced Edition, when you save a game, the whole module is saved to the savegame, including all area state, etc. So with each new patch players have to restart a module to get all the latest fixes and features. We’ll think about ways to redesign how savegames work, but can’t promise anything.
  • We’re always interested in working with content creators on Neverwinter Nights: Enhanced Edition. Currently, we’re working with Soren on shaders, textures and tooling, and Symmetric on NeverBlender.

Excited for what’s next? Come and join the next livestream next Friday!
