GraphSim on Baldur's Gate Fix
9:47 AM | Andy Largent | Comment on this story
On Monday, we brought you word of a bug in the popular RPG Baldur's Gate in which the game would often "freeze" while you were resting your characters. We recently caught up with GraphSim, the people behind the Mac port of the game, to see if this was a known issue or not. Their response was:
Yeah, we are aware [of the bug]. We should have a new "better" patch soon.GraphSim actually has two programmers currently working on the game. The original is fixing bugs and making other improvements, while Duane Johnson is adding multiplayer capability to the game and working on the Tales of the Sword Coast add-on pack. When asked about the status of the multiplayer patch, GraphSim said they are "making good progress." We will hopefully see that free downloadable patch sometime next month; play vs. PC users is not planned.

Also, with the recent announcements from United Developers to port both Baldur's Gate II and Icewind Dale, we asked GraphSim if they were surprised at the news. Apparently, it wasn't new to them, as UD simply out-bid them for the games. All is not lost for GraphSim, as they are currently in contract negotiations for several other as-yet-unnamed titles. We wish them the best and look forward to any announcments they might have in the future.
