onkelll: Finally caved and purchased the EEs just for the originals. Already had Planescape and NWN on gog since before at least. But damn are those codes well hidden, thanks for the guide, advowson.
Have the EEs on Steam anyways, just want the classics on gog. Is there a way to get original Doom 3 on gog as well?
i have tested both the classic edition and the enhanced edition on my pc.. somejhow the classic edition causes the cpu to be fully utilized resulting in overheating (though thermal throttling seems to be the right way to describe the behavior). However, the enhanced edition works perfectly fine without stressing the cpu.. does anyone have a workaround for this?
Side by side close up shots of the originals versus EE versions and the originals looks sharper and have better proportions. The UI looks so much better and is actually snappier. Colors also look a bit more natural. Text fits better with the game.
It plays and looks great at 4:3 on a 34 inch lcd! Just need Aspect Ratio scaling + Override scaling mode set by games/programs in your Nvidia control panel, set 1024 rez in the BG2 control panel with 3D acceleration on and the Fullscreen 4:3 is glorious.

Its really sad that the classics are being treated this way as <second class>.

Calean: I have both BGEE and BGIIEE in my GOG librabry, but I can't find a way to download the original Saga. Nothing under "Extras", only Manual
Survival Guide
Adventurer's Guide.
Did they remove this, or is there another way to get/buy the original saga on GOG?

advowson: The classic edition cannot be bought. However, the EE should give you a GOG Gift Code which you can redeem to add the classic edition to your account.

1. Go to https://www.gog.com/account
2. Find Baldur's Gate: Enhanced Edition in the game listing.
3. Click it to trigger the overlay where you can download the Extras, the installer, etc.
4. Just below the game title, find the line "System: Windows ; Language: English ; More"
5. Click More.
6. Click Serial Keys. The links to download the game will be replaced with a page which shows you a serial key as a URL. Do not share this URL. It contains your personalized gift code. Anyone who has it can redeem the code to add the game to their account. This is a one-use code.
7. Go to that URL. Solve the Google recaptcha.
8. The classic edition should be added to your account as a separate game.

The same steps apply for Baldur's Gate 2 to obtain a code for its classic edition.

If you don't see the serial keys, you may need to contact GOG support.
Wow I now have the original will try it on my XP laptop....Thanks
