Default Re: Oh, Aerie, I've missed you, too...

I have Win7x64 and the old BG games (both 1 and 2) run fine on my machine. As Shadow Stranger says, you may have to fool around with Compatibility mode though.

The only real reason for getting the EEs is the presence of new, joinable, NPCs and their Quests. These NPCs are NOT (to my knowledge) available as mods from the usual mod sources. I would imagine that is because they are proprietary to the Enhanced editions. The BG1 EE is available on Steam ... just wait for one of their sales. BG2 EE, once it's been out long enough, will also hit the Steam sales pretty soon.
