Baldur's Gate beta

Post by GL1zdA »

Does anyone have any information about Baldur's Gate betas? Someone just posted a scan from a polish magazine with 2 screenshots of a game called "Iron Throne" that became Baldur's Gate. The UI looks quite different from the released version, but you can identify the buttons that were also in the final version.

There's an early self-running demo of BG that is essentially a prototype. I've never managed to crack it, but it appears to be theoretically functional. You can even see the interface buttons highlight when you move the invisible cursor over them.

There's also a set of screenshots of Iron Throne from March 1997 or earlier.
