Will any of the party NPCs take control of your group, at any time? These sorts of unprompted cut-ins happen occasionally--not with the frequency you would find with a character like Weimer's BG2 Valen.

NPCs will not make regular reference to or notice things you've done. I may not have been clear enough in my answer if this is the impression you got. In my answer, I was trying to avoid promising something like this: "All of your characters will keep track of whether you went to the mall, the supe...

In addition to the RPGDot and SP links there's also an audio interview with transcript at Four Fat Chicks. Of course, I'd be happy to field questions for Banshee as well.

You could try just installing the English patch to the game. That will change the text, although not the audio. To get the audio, you'll need to find someone who has the English version of the game and ask them to send you the audio archives, which total a few hundred MB all told.

Your use of the term "them" makes me fear that you're considering downloading the old, obsolete version of Ascension, which you shouldn't do.

99 out of 100 times, the problem you describe is caused by not properly extracting the mod to your BG2 directory. Make sure you tell it to extract to the directory containing the file bgmain.exe.

It was an autumn issue (October, I believe) of PC Gamer, the one with all the D&D 30th anniversary material. Atari confirmed that it would be made, but gave scant details. So, yes, of course it can be cancelled, but at a point in the recent past they stuck up their hands and said "yes."
