WEIDU

YosharianYosharian Posts: 33Member
So, apparently the bigg is not interested in updating WEIDU (the 'Tuesday' comment was a joke it seems).

What does everyone think about this?

Is it even worth waiting for a WEIDU update, since there are workarounds to get the old WEIDU working with BG:EE? BG:EE update problems notwithstanding... (reinstalling all mods everytime Beamdog updates is a pain in the arse...)

Is anyone working on WEIDU in the bigg's place? Is it possible someone from Gibberlings3 could take it over?

I'm probably going to wait for the last couple of BG1 mods to come out (NPC Project and Unfinished Business) before I begin my playthrough. I guess it can't hurt to wait a bit, since Beamdog are still actively patching out bugs.

    What was that talk about modding will be easier in BGEE?
    Won't we be seeing something from Beamdog once they have got all their versions and some of the bigger bugs fixed ?

    What really made BG stand out compared to any other RPG was that, besides other things, you could mod it and bend it to your will literally.

    It was a long time since mods appeared that could work, and work together.

    Through that time, BG has aged, but aged well.

    However, at this point, if no new Weidu comes out, some people, a lot maybe, won't be able to put mods in the game. It's not the same.

    And of course, BG:EE does not have the same time as the original "to be further enhanced through mods". The game has aged well, but will not withstand as much as the first one in regard to time. It won't age that well from now on.

    As such, it doesn't have the luxury of time as the original had, and this worries me.

    As i see it, it might be a long time till we actually see mods in this game.

    And for people like me that need mods to play, so i can even play the game as i could the original(cough animations cough), it sucks.

    Feels good to be me, today.

    I hope we get a new version. Workaround doesn't work for me due to a nigh unfixable bug that can occur with W7.

    i wouldda hoped that one of the Beamdog guys would get a hold of the Author and mby release a Weidu version that works ? on his sparetime or something ? would Really make a huge difference to us, same with Shadowkeeper :P so i can finally have my Kensai - Mage multiclass :P

    I believe that Wisp is going to give maintaining WeiDU a shot.

    Overdramatic much? BG1 hasn't gone anywhere. WeiDU currently works with BG1. Sooner or later some plucky individual will be taking up the mantle of maintaining WeiDU and we will see a version that supports BG:EE without wacky kluges.

    BG:EE has all the time (left) in the world.

    Yes, what @Kaeloree said here ^

    Enhance your calm! Don't everyone fall into a sudden panic... LOL. We got most of the top modders over here in the beta scrambling to make mods work on BG:EE. It will get done.

    Ima sad modder now. Time to go back to the old days of over writing files.
  • LiamEslerLiamEsler Posts: 1,843Member, Moderator, Developer, BG:EE Beta
    Why would you do that? Even if WeiDU isn't updated (which isn't going to happen), you can still use WeiDU with BG:EE just fine if you know what to watch out for. :)

    Ah the internets and things getting lost in translation.

    It was a joke. :)

    @CoMSolaufein Ah suddenly that makes so much more sense :D Sadly I have actually heard that statement for real in a few places. What is the world coming to, etc., etc.

    @Mornmagor @junk11 I've never been so proud to be Australian!

    In some instances it is better but not in most I will say.
