G3: Tyris Flare NPC updates to Version 7 G3's Tyris Flare NPC, by Grim Squeaker, has been updated by Argent77, and is now available for your BG2:SoA, BG2:ToB, BGT, and BG2:EE games. Meet Tyris Flare, a red-haired amazon who can kick ass and hurl fire! Sound familiar? That's because she used be in Golden Axe! But now she's lost in the Umar Hills and looking for the love of a good (or bad) Bhaalspawn. This latest version of Tyris has a couple of miscellaneous fixes, updates WeiDU, and is now available for Linux and for install on BG2:EE thanks to Argent77. Enjoy.
GemRB is a portable open-source implementation of Bioware's Infinity Engine. It was written to support pseudo-3D role playing games based on the Dungeons & Dragons ruleset (Baldur's Gate and Icewind Dale series, Planescape: Torment).
The text subsystem rewrite that was merged right after the previous release took a lot of effort to stabilize (some kinks remain), but is now mostly complete. As with most under-the-hood work, only dedicated users would spot a difference. More obvious is the support for parties larger than 6 in combination with the 10pp mod (to fix the data). The rest of our mods were also fully converted to WeiDU for simpler installation. On top of that, the usual hundreds of fixes and polishes that should make this one of our best releases yet!
For the details, try GemRB yourself or check the linked changelog for some highlights.
