Divine Divinity is now available in English at GOG.COM for only 5.99 US Dollars!!

The version includes the latest patch PLUS extra new stuff (extra fixes and features).

“I remember the release of Divine Divinity as if it were yesterday. We had no clue how people would react to the game and weren’t sure that our RPG mix was going to appeal. Then, suddenly we got bombarded with mails and forum reactions from people enjoying the game, and received award after award from the specialized press. It was a very rewarding time, and I look forward to see the reactions from the GOG.com audience.” said Swen Vincke, CEO at Larian Studios. “GOG.com approaching us was also the perfect opportunity for us to address a couple of issues in the original game, and introduce support for higher resolutions.”

I just got this newsletter from GOG.com, as a fan of Divine Divinity I must say I got a little excited :P I'm going to buy it as soon as I get chance :P I haven't searched yet, but is there a list of changes on the net somewhere for me to take a look at? Or would that just be located within a readme/changelog when I purchase the game, I'm very curious to know what the new stuff and fixes were laugh And the reason I mention this here is because it seems a good place to put them. Anyways thanks for the remake you lovely lovely people at Larian :P Can't wait to try this out ^^ Cheers guys laugh

Hello smegy hehe

Thank you for being so happy with the remastered version of div.

Version 1.4A is the newest version.
This version has been patched to the latest available patch, so patching the game is not necessary and not recommended.

Extra fixes and features have been added to this version since the last patch. They are:

General:
- Feature: Allow more resolutions
- Feature: Recreated config tool
- Fixed numerous crashes and freezes
- Fixed: encumbrance could make items disappear
- Feature: Tooltips of damage stats on stat screen improved

Skills:
- Fixed: Spellbooks no longer ignore level requirements
- Fixed: All weapon expertise skills give percentile bonuses instead of static bonuses
- Fixed: True Sight damage is now actually used
- Fixed: Bow and crossbow expertise bonuses are now actually used
- Fixed: Divine Eye removes the fog of war
- Fixed: Deadly Gift's Scorpion Trap is less powerful
- Fixed: Resurrected enemies die after region swap

Hope this helps you wink

i purchased the game near carrefour at my place. i think it's the new version because it comes with the 1.00034A (or something like that) and it comes with one CD for the game and another CD for the manual. Anw, this game is great. Ppl say DIABLO is the best but i'd pick this anytime

Actually it`d be really good to make a 1DVD box and release it for the stores not just sell it on GOG and download...

Nice! I already have the boxed version, but i still bought the game from GOG. For 6 bucks such a classic is a real steal!

The configuration tool does now offer widescreen resolutions at 16:9 ratios, but to get 16:10 or other ratios, you have to edit the "display width" and "display height" values in the "config.div" file located in Divine Divinity's installation directory.

My resolution of 1920 x 1200 requires the following modification:

// display width
width 1920

// display height
height 1200

The good news is that the full map now works in widescreen resolutions!

Well, the updated configuration tool seems to be a bit picky indeed, but 1680*1050 is selectable, so it's not aspect ratio thing only.

Are old savegames compatible? I'd put my latest run-through on hold until this came out so I could use my map + widescreen.

Yes, they are wink

I have tried mine, savegames before patch 1.34 and savegames with patch 1.34.
I didn't run into any problems.

The configtool asks for possible resolutions to the graphics card / monitor through Windows, but it could indeed be that you want to play (and will be able to play) in a resolution that is not listed. We are just showing the "safe" resolutions that are trusted / sure to work.

If you want to try other resolutions, you can indeed manually edit the config.div file (in the root of the installation directory) with a text editor.

The question is: can we get remastered version via patch?

1) So - it would seem all magic spells now work?
2) I wonder if it has been formatted to work better w/ multi core processors?
3) Does Freeze on a weapon still ignore resistances/overpower?


Skills:
- Fixed: Spellbooks no longer ignore level requirements
- Fixed: All weapon expertise skills give percentile bonuses instead of static bonuses
- Fixed: True Sight damage is now actually used
- Fixed: Bow and crossbow expertise bonuses are now actually used
- Fixed: Divine Eye removes the fog of war
- Fixed: Deadly Gift's Scorpion Trap is less powerful
- Fixed: Resurrected enemies die after region swap

4) See above ^ Do you mean "True Shot" damage is now actually used instead of "True Sight?"

Also, Larian should have the new fixes listed on GOG as an added incentive to buy - ar buy again, as I did!
