I won't play NWN2 because the movement controls and cam angles are so fubar. I'm guessing this mod borks those too.

Thats really not that much of an issue, the camera was easily manually controlled.

I'll be re installing NWN2 for this for certain.

If memory serves, when both NWN1 and again when 2 were released, there were several projects that aimed to recreate BG1 and/or 2 to the new engines. I had thought that all of them petered out due 1)the size of the project and 2)volunteers using it as a springboard for employment and not finishing the project.

Very impressive, but wasn't there a similar project to recreate BG2 under the Dragon Age: Origins' engine? Or maybe I'm mixing that one project I'm thinking of with BG2 and it ain't the case (correct me if I'm wrong, I just think I read that sometime ago but memory about it is vague now). I've never played Neverwinter Nights 2, so maybe I'll consider it sometime to try that mod, but since I've completed BG2 before I don't feel any urgency to do so.

And like Via said above... it might be shut down one day, who knows. It wouldn't be the first fan-made non-profit modification that gets shut down. I hope that he will be "allowed" to keep all [the] (his) material and that the mod will remain available for free, for the sake of his work and dedication, if anything.

The one for Dragon Age: Origins is BG2 only, and it stalled after Irenicus' Dungeon. It was pretty fantastic too and captured the feel perfectly.

I don't think isometric camera on Neverwinter Nights 2 is as good as Dragon Age: Origins though, so this might be a bit of a struggle to play on through iso-cam.

I wonder if this project will be shut down just like they shut down a C&C Generals Starcraft 2 mod before Starcraft came out...

When there's will, there's a way.

That looks pretty damn cool. I can even recognize parts of the game and locations from that.

It's very cool and obviously impressive work. But will it improve the game in any way? It looks like it might actually make some of it worse.
