    [​IMG] Dear all,

    A long-time fan playing an old version of BG (i. e. release version = 1.1.4315) is looking for the valid link to the official update/patch (supposedly on the valid official website)... :confused:

    Indeed, when I click on the 'Update' box on the small window when starting the game, I get an 'Object not found' page.
    I guess the update option has been moved elsewhere, but I have no idea where... :o
    The link I have is http://www.interplay.com/Bgate/files.html

    So
    1) does anybody know how could I get the most recent update/patch for BG (and I mean BG, not BG2, with or without TotSC) ?
    2) I've also heard of an Enhanced Edition of BG. Is there a (even brief) description of what this EE provides/tweaks/enhances as opposed to the original version ?

    Thanx in advance for whatever help/reply!

    Dear Taluntain,

    Kudos for this reply.

    Hum...
    I forgot to ask :) : do you know if these patch changes apply even if I already started the game/start from a previously unpatched saved game ?
    Or do I have to restart the game from CK ?

    Cheers,

    Generally, the IE game patches are not retroactive, meaning if you've already encountered an issue the patch fixes, it likely won't be fixed until you load a savegame from before you've entered that area. So it's always best to start with a fresh install, patch fully and then play.
