    Beamdog thinking those black outlines will wash the blurriness away is akin to a little kid being sure his pillow fort can keep the monsters at bay. So cute:negative:

    It's aesthetics, so hard to argue.. but yeah, I think it looks horrible. Some people love them though.

    There's no accounting for some people's taste ¯\_(ツ)_/¯

    Atmospheric contamination was likely removed for performance reasons, just like the anti-aliased fog of war in IWD2 (which was present in the Press Preview release).

    Alright Codex people, PST:EE is now live. There's a FAQ section on the Beamdog website which may answer some of your questions. In addition, here are some design decisions that I made as the PST:EE Project Lead:

    • No new party members, quests, NPCs, areas or cinematic movies
    • No new writing by anyone except Chris Avellone. In case you're wondering, Chris wrote a couple of new journal entries, adjusted a few special ability (i.e. Morte's Skull Mob) textual descriptions and composed the text that is displayed on the new "Welcome Screen". He also designed the Steam Achievements (wrote the text and specified the icon appearance) and named the new main menu buttons (i.e. Options = Alter Senses)
    • No changes to existing writing except for a proofreading pass of the original game text by Chris Avellone (he asked to do this)
    • No kits/classes/races/spells/items from BG2 or IWD
    • No changes to the combat and general gameplay
    • No "Story Mode" or "Heart of Fury" difficulty settings
    • No multiplayer

    Note that when I say "writing" I'm referring to the text that the player can access within the gameworld i.e. by talking to NPCs, inspecting objects, spells, items and the journal. That doesn't include text that is accessed outside of the gameworld such as the technical descriptions which explain how new UI options like "Zoom Lock" or "Hardware Mouse Cursor" function. The descriptions of those options were written by the developers who worked on implementing them, not by Chris.

    They don't tell us shit about what they changed outside of graphics and some gimmicks. Which can mean two things. They changed nothing or they did change something, and are already launching damage control.

    This is a much better representative of the end product. The only thing I don't like at all is the blurry portraits. They could have least replaced them with the official art for the different characters, hell, I'm going to make a mockup myself.

    Will you actually leave the original version up, or are you once again going to use this as an excuse to double the price by bundling it with the "Enhanced" Edition?

    And for people asking about the black outlines and blurry sprites, here's a pixel perfect 1080p screenshot with most of the EE options turned off.

    That should be the closest to the original game + widescreen mod.

    Not my decision.

    So they will just give a widescreen option, which you can get for free using ghostdog's resolution patch and custom UI. This is the biggest ripoff from Beamdog yet.

    Are the screenshots on the page in 4K? They look beautiful on my 4K TV.

    Well, it looks like I'm starting a new LP, then. PS:T:EE in 4K! :)
