    Hey Rawr and hello and such.

    I will not lie, I am new to this website. I was sitting here in my carpet chair thinking to myself, I miss the days where I would rpg in the Msn chat rooms pretending I was a elf, so I decided to come back to the interweb world and try again. This is as far as I found. I am cool for chatting and everything, but yea. Help an oldbie out? (I'm really not that old but I really dont do computers often. I'm a Dnder irl )

    Wow, no one said hi to scorp ... sorry about that dude. A belated welcome.

    Hello Kotokin, I don't know much about internet role playing but someone here should be able to help you out.

    Hello people, I came over from the GOG forums.

    Recently bought BG1+2, recently finished IWD 1+2. Or more specifically... played IWD1, spent like a million hours in the IWD2 character creator to understand and savor the 3E rules, then breezed through the game proper. I guess the experience will help me with BG2.

    Spend my spare time on one game or another!

    The first game I played was Advent a real chalange written in Fortran and used a Ked editor if needed on a D E C computer. That was around 25 years ago maybe longer. I looked it up last year and downloaded it. Nothing like the modern games. Everything was typing and memory mostly underground absolutely no graffics. My first post was around 1995 never knowing this tread was here. Hi!

    ---------- Added 0 hours, 23 minutes and 55 seconds later... ----------

    I just checked and David Kinder's guide to Adventure downloads at
    the Interactive Fiction Archive
    is still there. there are several versions and all free. Try one of them and be in for quite a change. Now I have to get out my older games to see if they will work on my new machine. I wonder weather games like Neverwinter Nights will work with the latest computer.

    Hi! Silvery

    Thanks for the information. Maybe there is hope for all the other older games I have. I look forward to playing them many more times. Thanks.

    Hi there gener1. Die hard Baldur's Gate fan here. I've had plenty of success playing the old Infinity Engine games on Win 7 64, including BG1, BG2, Torment, and Icewind Dale 2.

    I'd advise looking into fan mods such as the Widescreen Mod so you can play infinity engine games in current resolutions.

    Back again

    Hi to everyone. I've been here before but it was a while ago; just got an email reminder so I thought I'd check out the site again.

    I'm also a Baldur's Gate gamer, all versions, and looking to start playing a heavily modded game with TuTu. I was going to do that last year, which was probably when I joined, but then my computer crashed and Windows is still funky. Now my keyboard is having problems, so it will be until I get a new one before I start.

    Hoping to get some tips on the best mods and how to get the most out of them. See you around--

    The first step is admitting you have a problem. THe second step is realising that we'll just add to the problem and encourage it! :lol:

    Still figuring things out...
