Baldur's Gate Enhanced Edition Patch 1.2 Released
6:00 AM | Cord Kruse | 5 comments

Overhaul Games recently released version 1.2.0 of Baldur's Gate: Enhanced Edition, with the Mac App Store version of the patch to reach players as soon as it is approved by Apple. The update includes over 300 bug fixes and improvements including a newly enhanced user interface, a new unique default color scheme for every class and race, and a rebalanced Shadowdancer kit.

A modified version of Bioware's fantasy role playing game set in the Forgotten Realms, BGEE features an enhanced version of the Infinity Engine, the Tales of the Sword Coast expansion pack, new adventures, new party members, and new character kits.

Newly Enhanced User Interface

The bottom panel interface has been improved, and the action bar has been given a level of transparency. The font used in the combat log is now sharper as well.

All interface windows in the game now appear as windows instead of concealing the entire screen, and can be toggled back to the gameplay screen by pressing their individual hot-keys (I for Inventory, R for Record, etc.).

Multiplayer Match-Making (Beta)

A new match-making system has been implemented for multiplayer, removing the need to forward ports to your router when setting up a game. Just click on Multiplayer, Create Game, and give your game a session name and a password if you like. Currently open games are displayed on the Join Games screen, allowing players to quickly pick up and play with people from across the globe.

New unique default colors for every race and class

Every race now has a default color for skin and hair; every class (and kit) now has unique default colors for clothing and armor. Modders can take advantage of this feature by editing CLASCOLR.2da and RACECOLR.2da to give their races and kits the desired defaults.

Other Features of Note:

  • Custom Portraits now only require a large portrait, will scale and resize from resolutions up to 1024
  • Spellcasters may now select the same spell to be memorized more than once at character creation
  • New font has been implemented
  • Added option to scale UI
  • Middle mouse button allows dragging of gameplay screen

GameRanger Not Compatible With Mavericks
6:00 AM | Cord Kruse | 18 comments

In a recent new update GameRanger revealed the multiplayer matchmaking service is not compatible with Apple's latest OS release, Mavericks. The fix will apparently require a significant amount of work and time, so those relying on GamerRanger for multiplayer gaming might want to wait a while before updating to 10.9.

Unfortunately, Mac OS X 10.9 (Mavericks) removed a core networking library which prevents GameRanger from working at all. If you're able to, avoid upgrading for now if you want to keep playing.

A GameRanger update is being worked on, but this has required rewriting a significant percentage of the code. This is far more work and far more complicated than originally anticipated, so will take some time to complete.

This was previously announced within the GameRanger app's news broadcast system.
