Someone’s finally done it, Baldur’s Gate, presumably the original saga, rendered in the NWN2 game engine, known as Baldur’s Gate Reloaded. This was originally pointed out to me by Berliand. This article hosts a video trailer and comments on the acquisition and installation process. The hosting portal requires registration, although free registration is good enough. The portal page has both detailed and summary installation instructions.




On the hosting site, they say,

NOTE: More detailed installation instructions are included with the download. If you are experiencing installation issues or crashing issues, please read this document and ensure you have installed the game properly.

*** IMPORTANT: It is strongly recommended that you remove the campaign directory (My Documents/Neverwinter Nights 2/Campaigns/BGR) and all modules (My Documents/Neverwinter Nights 2/BG_* and My Documents/Neverwinter Nights 2/TOSC_*) if you have a previous version installed before installing a newer version. ***

  1. Remove all content from your Override directory in both you install directory and your My Documents Directory (…Program Files/Atari/Neverwinter Nights 2/override AND Libraries/Documents/Neverwinter Nights 2/override)
  2. Place all 6 .RAR files into your Neverwinter Nights 2 *My Documents* directory (Libraries/Documents/Neverwinter Nights 2). Use “Extract All” on all 6 parts
  3. Select “Yes” to merge all folders
  4. The installation is now complete. To play Baldur’s Gate: Reloaded, launch the game normally and select “New Campaign -> Baldur’s Gate: Reloaded”. Enjoy!

  1. I hve just installed it, seems to work ok. I have put my installation files on my Google drive but they are .rar disks, my unpacker is not well installed. I need to see what’s up. Is it a W8 thing?
