This download changes all the Neverwinter Nights spell icons to look like the spell icons in Baldur's Gate 2. I did not make the images (though I modified a few to make Summon Monster IV-IX, Expeditious Retreat, and Isaac's Lesser Missile storm) and they are taken from Baldur's Gate 2 and Throne of Bhaal.
They look great with or without the Baldur's GUI installed (I have it in the screenshot included - they fit extremely well with it)
INSTRUCTIONS: To use, open the .rar file and extract everything in the Neverwinter Nights override folder. To remove them, remove the files (Or simply remove the modified "Spells.2da" and let the .tga's rest in the folder, they will not show without the .2da file.)

I cannot say how much I love the Baldur's Gate series, and being able to play NWN with BG icons will be a very VERY cool experience. _________________________ @===============================================@
Vinchenzo made a post here.
Plz check out my entries. I'm currently making a few simple modules, designing 3 special characters, and hope to someday be good this stuff.
This is Vinchenzo, finishing his post with the following advice:
Don't use Latin improperly (Lupis means grey, Rufus is red, Canid is dog, so on.) Furries annoy me with their improper usage of such. And I'm a furry!!! Ugh...
Don't vote for Beta things unless told they are finished, unless posted specifically by the author.
Don't abuse the vote and post function, don't vote for your own/friends stuff just to get a high vote. Don't flame vote either just to be an ass.
There is a voting system for how the points are used, even I forget, but we should follow it (and tattoo it to our forehead, lol)

I love this override, it's great for changing the feel of the game, if only just a little. _________________________ "Gentle child, slumber in peace; dragons and centaurs will guard your sleep.

This is a great download, and it really brings back a lot of fond memories of the baldur's gate series. Highly recommended :) _________________________ Jester the Occassionally Merciful

Just different. Another version of these could be made to allow for work with various spell haks, but a) it wouldn't change any new spells included in the hak (obviously) and b) I didn't think of it when I started it :p

Still.. isnt there a way to make them visable without the needed 2da file? Pretty much all the servers out there Override the icons and give me the standard ones again, who look not very fantasy.. the BG2 ones in this file are just so much better..
The Baldur's gui isnt overwritten, or is that another system of replacing visual graphics?
They should be ok - unless it clashes with another modified Spells.2da? Perhaps in a hak pack. _________________________ Lord Jierdan Firkraag The Dragon's Lair, my D&D resource

Think I got it solved.. hakless and CEP work fine, and the icons show. Thanks a biggie for those =) Modules and servers with custom 2da's tend to not let them show.. not sure if the hakpack overrides the 2da in override.

I havent figured it out why it sometimes show now, and sometimes not.. But it sure looks great! Thanks for it =)
Hakless, and cep modules/server seem to work, but some servers with custom 2da's dont let them show.. Think that's the issue, not sure though.

That's odd. I've been using these for ages now, and they've always worked fine for me.
