Title  Baldur's Gate 2 Spell Icons Override
Author  Lord Jierdan Firkraag
Submitted / Updated  10-29-2005 / 10-29-2005
Category  Other
Format  Various
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.)

Only a few of the changed spell icons - This screenshot also shows the Baldur's GUI - The icons look great with it, but they are very nice alone, too.

Although it is just port, I think it deserve good vote. Here it is.

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.

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

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
Maybe in the future

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?

Three seconds difference :D Yeah, that should be it, haks with spells.

They should be ok - unless it clashes with another modified Spells.2da? Perhaps in a hak pack.

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.

Posted by Ticladesign at 2005-10-30 12:05:21    Voted 10.00 on 10/30/05
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.

Cant get it to work for some reason, is the 2da working propperly? Installled it all in override, but dont get any Icons :/
