This is the initial release of gemrb.

For feedback please respond to either this thread or the retrofw discord (preferred).

Also I would encourage retrofw users to revisit the retrofw wiki as there have been a metric tonne of new things added in the past month by lots of users.

Gemrb - Planescape torment, Icewind Dale 1, Baldurs Gate 1,2 Engine - Alpha version.
Tested on Baldurs Gate 2 no issues so far

Step 1) https://github.com/Poligraf/germrb_retrofw/releases/download/1/gemrb_bin.zip
Step 2) Unzip it
Step 3) Add gemrb.sh in your launcher
Step 4) Add the game in the game folder (must not be ENHANCED EDITION)
Step 5) Enjoy.............I think
Step 6) Even though this is alpha, I will try my absolute hardest to not break saves
Step 7) No need for bigger fonts, they are already installed by default. (Only tested in BG2), I might have done some typos so the other games might crash.

Buttons -
Menu - Options
A - Highlight Important Items
B - Map
X- Pause
Y - Hitpoint status
Start - select whole party (resets selection below)
Select - selects individual party member (every time select is pressed it toggles between each of party memebers from 1 to 6). At the start because there are only 2, it behaves a bid oddly.

Right trigger button - left mouse click
Left trigger button - right mouse click

The mouse choice seems confusing, but this is on purpose. Most of us are now used to use right mouse button for movement these days, while the game uses the left almost in all cases

Thanks man

Bear in mind, I have  tested this with BG2 only.

Hopefully there are no crazy bugs, but if they are bugs, I am sure they are fixable.

I think I need some time to think of  button combos which will work well and make the game even easier to play on a controller than currently.

BTW I checked around. Icewind Dale the original version are not available for sale anywhere.

All I had is the enhanced edition on GOG.

Archive.org have the original isos, but won't post a direct link here.

not sure about the rest (BG1 & 2 and PT)
