Very much this. It was the remasters that got me to back the game._noblesse_oblige_ wrote: ↑June 18th, 2017, 8:14 amNote to inXile: In the past couple of years that I've been on this forum, I've seen numerous posts like the one above. Might be worth considering that much of the crowd-funding you received may not be a mandate for the game you're making, but for the one you already made as Interplay back in the 80's. This could be taken as a hint to make BT4 more like the originals, modern sensibilities be damned. (For whatever modern means.)The only reason I backed this game was for The Bard's Tale remastered games but hopefully Bards Tale IV will be ok.

Unrelated question, but have you considered adding in some form of tooltips so we can see what an item or spell does ingame?

Yes, it would be a nice option to buy a standalone version of Bard's Tale The Original Trilogy Remastered.
The currently available DOS versions are buggy and ugly (unless unofficial patch is applied), and the KEGS32 emulator included in BT2004 "Remastered" might have issues with saving besides being quite slow.
I hope Burger Becky can write a save/load/import system, as elegant and fast as her ProDos routines were for BT3 and Dragon Wars. These games need to be able to run very fast, due to backtracking, trash fights and grinding. Funny how those things sound bad for a "modern game" and yet quite a few people would still like to play these classics in a "definitive edition" on a "modern" PC.
This game needs better coverage. "Social media" postings and various links to unlisted youtube videos are inadequate in my opinion. I can't believe how more unprofessional this can get...
Not that BT4 is much better, with its quarterly uninformative updates and shameless BT2004 / MT promos.
The funny thing is, it will be more like real Amiga / IIGS gaming (as it used to be). For PC there was Wizardry and Might & Magic.

Kinda reminds me of Might and Magic 3-5 now that I think about it.

I'm really happy to hear that! I'm very much looking forward to it. After this much time I'm still a little hesitant to get my hopes up, but I will keep my fingers crossed.
