...aaanyway, back on topic. Just a heads up that if I mysteriously "disappear" again, you now know why.

Not that there are any graphic mods that do improve the look of the game. One of the advantages of BGT is that it does combine the disperate elements of the game into one game.
This is pretty much what I feel too, I never really liked the BG1 menus, Garriath. It's a nice thing to incorporate, though, and I'm sure many people feel just as you do. Though in my specific case, it's not really an advantage.

Surely someone else has a view, even if they all disagree with me, I'd still be interested in knowing why. I'm not exactly unused to being proven wrong, so if you disagree say so!
Alas, this game is ooold. Can't really wonder at the lack of activity on forums that cover such an old game, though Gamebanshee has been strangely quiet lately I have to admit. My guess is they're all busy playing BG:EE.
After your confrontation with your bro the game doesn't end, you are told to return to the Ducal Palace, when you get there you're asked to deliver a message to the authorities in Amn. On the way you get ambushed by a bunch of hired thieves, lead by a certain guild leader you may later meet in Athkatla.[
That seems...very nice, to be honest. Lovely little transition work done, right there. I've been weighting back and forth and looking at different sites (only this site has given me trouble, strangely enough), and I must say BGT is looking nicer. The fact that it seems to effectively meld the games into one seems a definite bonus.
Just a question (apologies if you already covered this Galraen):
If I play with Edwin and Viconia in BG1, will their stats transfer over (level, xp, stats etc) to BG2? So if I gave Viccy 3xTomes of Insight, would she start BG2 with 21 WIS?

It's looking like I'll try BGT. Depends on if the stats carry over, that'd be quite nice. Eh, I feel both BGT and Tutu would probably work just fine. I might aswell try BGT given the conversion seems better. I'm nowhere near done with my character, however, so it'll probably be awhile still before I start playing proper. Thanks everyone for you replies!
