Overhaul Games recently released version 1.3.2053 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 offers over 200 bug fixes and improvements including adjustable font sizes and the introduction of a Quickloot feature.

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.

Crash Fixes
  • Game no longer freezes when canceling an imported priest character
  • Double-clicking a stack on ground slots no longer crashes the game
  • Custom portraits larger than 1024x1024 no longer crash the game; instead, a message appears informing the
  • user that the image is too big
  • (Android) Returning to the game from sleep mode should no longer cause the game to close
Features and Gameplay Enhancements
  • Added "Font Size" to Graphics Options (changing this during play will empty the combat log)
  • Quickloot feature from BGII:EE has been implemented
  • While viewing a mage's Spellbook screen, players can now switch to a priest character and the game will immediately switch to the Priest Spells screen (and vice versa)
  • Spell scrolls that can be written into a spellbook for the current character now display a green-tinted overlay
  • Non-friendly NPCs that are Blinded will no longer stand still; they will wander aimlessly until they are close enough to see someone worth attacking
  • Phandalyn is now a Lawful Good Paladin
  • Drizzt is now properly equipped with his scimitars, and has been recolored to match his description in the books
  • All golems in the game now possess appropriate immunities to Poison, Charm, Hold, Fear, Sleep, and Backstab
  • All crossbows now require the same strength as their non-magical counterparts
  • Rogdok now grants 400 experience points when defeated
  • Rasaad's bracers and boots are now only usable by Rasaad
  • Neera's staff is now only usable by Neera
Modder Features
  • Items can now be flagged as unusable by Half-Orcs
  • Profsmax.2da "FIRST_LEVEL" value can now be set higher than 2 to let characters place more pips in a proficiency type at level 1
  • Clswpbon.2da "GETS_PROF_APR" value can now be set to 1 to allow non-warrior classes and kits to benefit from APR bonuses
  • Neutral Evil, Neutral Good, Lawful Neutral, and Chaotic Neutral no longer prevent usability by True Neutral characters
  • Portrait.2da is now alphabetized for easier reference, and the "M" values for each portrait have been populated; Dorn's alternate portrait has been updated to use the Half-Orc portrait from BGII:EE
Critical Fixes
  • Aldeth's quest no longer gets stuck in cutscene mode during multiplayer
  • The tutorial now grants the player a weapon they can actually use (Exception: Clerics with Strength 3 cannot use any weapons)
  • Systems with out of date graphics drivers should no longer see graphical distortions in the game's UI
    (Android) Game no longer drains the battery when not in use
  • Auto-Pause will no longer stop a random encounter area from appearing; instead, the area will appear before the pause takes effect
