    GemRB is a portable open-source implementation of Bioware’s Infinity Engine (Baldur's Gate, Icewind Dale and Planescape: Torment). Since it's available for AmigaOS4, maybe someone can port it to MorphOS?

    So this means it's possible since 8 years on OS4 and still not possible on MorphOS, right?

    Perhaps a little bounty cans cheer someone to make the port.

    I guess if we find a coder that is willing to take the bounty we could arrange that.

    Well, how about you beworld? Since you have experience with porting stuff...
    I am one of the guys who plays games on MorphOS, so GemRB highly interests me.
    fwiw, I played first version of GemRB on OS4 around a decade (?) back and it was ok even under Sam440ep, so I assume that on G4 machines will rock.

    Years ago I was trying to make a port, but our C++ compiler was too old.

    I 've tried multiple times with BG2 but cfg fails to load the specified folders no matter if I use GOG Complete version (not Enchanced) and just point it to PROGDIR:BG2 (since it has different file stucture over iso rip) or PROGDIR:BG2/CD2 or PROGDIR:BG2/CD2/Data/ or full path such as CD1=Work:Games/Baldrus Gate Series/bg2 etc (for usual iso extracted data downloaded from archive.org).

    Can anyone confirm if it works or not on his system?

    BTW, checking with IW2 is a bad example since game is not completeble under GemRB (even latest versions).

    TBH, I think that the port should support GOG versions straight out of the box which have the exapnsions pre-installed.

    Gave another go with Planetscape Torment and no go as well (GOG version and PC installed).

    I have no idea why the binary checks on all sort of weird folders plus it mentions cds that don' event exist for the game i.e: "PROGDIR:pst/CD5/data (CD5/data)" or "Work:Games/Gemrb/pst/CD5/data (CD5/data)", huh?

    It also doesn't search for standard pc installed game folder since CD1 throws all data (*.bif) on root folder and not on CD1 or CD1/Data. CD2 - CD4 also have files on root folders. Created a data dir placed all data to every and couldn't trace them as well plus it fucks up the chitin.key which basically instructs internally the game about these paths.

    What about the override folder that comes with the binary? Should them be copied or replace same foders per each game?

    Finally I get an "ImportError: No module named site" which I think is related to python?

    Anyway, same games, same data folders, same versions work correctly on OS4.

    edit: Saw dev's post with his dir list. Will give Bg2 another go asap..

    Upstream here. The amiga port is in the process of being updated and some of that work may help morphos. It's happening here: https://github.com/gemrb/gemrb/pull/987

    We have a publicly declared goal to support as many platforms as possible, so I'm continuously perplexed that potential porters often don't even ask for pointers or help.

    CD paths don't matter, you need a full python install (including internal modules like site), files shipped with the engine shouldn't be copied to the game dir and in general files don't need to be moved.

    Got the same CD problem. Copied my config from Linux, so I know it should work normally.

    Would installing that additional Python stuff help, I thought it was included with the Aminet package? I don't think I get those module errors.

    But yeah, I'm trying to use the GOG version.
