Baldurs Gate, Planescape Torment, Icewind Dale in full resolution widesceen!

This has just made my week! A mod to (somehow) patch the game to run in a selection of resolutions.

Grab it here.

Just tried it on Planescape Torment and it looks AMAZING.

Can't wait to give Baldur's gate a try.

Note: It needs a bit of tweaking to get right. I found I had turn down the hardware acceleration to get the fog of war working correctly.

Slightly OT: Is it possible to push the resolution to 1280x1024 with this mod?

try it before you knock it. The mod edits the environment and enlarges the playing area. Inventory, menus and load screens are unchanged. These are minor quibbles as its amazing the game can be modified in this way in the first place. Its a 9 year old game and it looks so much fresher now with the improved with resolution.

I would say that is very much ON topic

Yes you can run well past that resolution if you want. Check my screenshot, its running for me at 1680x1050. I've also read that you can give it ANY x/y size, 1000x800 etc.
