    Well, I want to buy BG (I know it's quite late, but...) and I can't. I used the links in the game section and:

    -Amazon.com doesn't ship this game in Greece.
    -Chips&Bits had Baldur's Gate the Original Saga W95. If i am correct that is for Win95 and I have 98SE. They also had another called Baldur's Gate & Tales of the Sword Coast. However they don't have a picture so i am not sure.
    -I also checked at EB games but the don't ship here, either.

    So please, help.I am interested in a bundle that contains Baldur's Gate & Tales of The Sword Coast.

    [​IMG] No, no. There is no separate version that would work in only Win95. Whatever works in 95 certainly works in 98 as well. Go with the Chips & Bits link on SP, though shipping to Greece will be expensive. If possible, you're better off buying it somewhere in Greece.

    I know, it is expensive. 65.00$. But what should I do? I have tried. There is no way you can find it here. These games aren't so popular here. You can't also find Icewind Dale. I have tried everything. Mail-order, Superstores, noone has it. I only can find it burned, but I want the original.

    And btw Tal, can you take a look and tell me what the other pack, called "Baldur's Gate & Tales of the Sword Coast" is? Is it any different from Baldur's Gate The Original Saga?


    [EDIT]
    And btw another question. If I order at Chips & Bits will they send me the European version of the game? I am asking that because in the back of my BG2 copy (that was bought here) stays:

    "EUROPEAN VERSION
    Not for sale in North America or Canada. This game will not install in North American or Canadian Systems"

    is there something like that in the North American version too? Beccause if I order and they ship me the North American version, then i am scr***d.

    Sirdan - I have the BG/TotSC combo pack and it's just BG and the expansion on 3 cd's with a soundtrack cd included. Basically BG and TotSC get installed completely from the initial installation instead of 2 seperate installs.

    IMO, it's worth it.

    [Edit] Yeah....my box says "Not for sale outside of North America"

    [​IMG] A lot of data on the original BG CDs is duplicated on every CD so that you don't have to switch that much if you don't make a full install. Guess they rearranged it now, and probably also used a better compression.
