    [​IMG] GOG usually edits the exe but not the files included. So mods should work perfectly normally on the versions. I've used mods and hacks on games from GOG but I haven't bought IE games from there yet.

    Sence I don't know how either BGT or Easy Tutu handles it I am unsure on if it will work or not. Looks like i will be waiting for someone with knowledge on if it works or not to post.

    Hmm not sure if anyone else got the exact goodies i got but i got Lure of the Temptress, Beneath a Steel Sky, and Teen Agent with my code.

    They should work in general, but I think one also applies some exe hacks. Due to the changed executable, the offsets need to be updated, but that has likely already been done (like with the widescreen mod).

    I would assume that this version of BG would NOT allow you to use Tutu or similar mods. The main .exe file is usually encrypted on a D2D game, and as such most mods don't work. I found the same happened with Oblivion, which still irritates the hell outta me.

    Like Arundor, I think it's the first time I win something like this =)

    Thanks to SP and GoG for the contest! Also thanks to GoG for bringing all these classics back. Although I do own the original 5 CDs edition of BG, I also belong to the "worn out discs" club. Installing the game from them seems to be a hit or miss as I would end up with corrupted files half the time. I was planning on buying it off GoG sooner or later.

    I can't say I'm surprised... :) Real life has kept me away from computer gaming, so I haven't been paying too much attention to the news section... :p Silly me, I know.
