this is the IWD 2 GOG version? the normal one , not the enhanced?
i just installed the icwd 2 version collectors edition from retail dvd ( i also have both GOG games)
just bought this collectors edition seevral days ago, and the icewind dale + heart of winter, the dvd case reads: the original Icewind Dale & Heart of Winter , i bought it at 7 and 12 euros, cause i was hoping that it would have a small paper manual like, yuris revenge had, theres plenty space in the small dvd case, but those retail dudes
cheaped out on the manual so now i also have the old stuff (it works) but i bought it for the manual :D
Anyways , i will have to install the iwd again ( uninstalled because my hd had insufficient free space (had to clean it up)
had to login again(after closing browser it seems your logged out(i guess for security and you have to login (my game accounts also logout when i close a tab),
brower hung because IWD2 was hogging CPU even in windowed mode it uses 25% of all 4 cores
thats quite a lot , games does not like alt tabbinb even in windowed mode, when in full screen it will cause loads of lag
as i am typing iwd2 is soaking up 30% of CPU (window mode)
GPU is at 48 degrees celsius so thats okay
cores are at 66 , 55, 52, 52, degrees celsius
Over the years i have noticed that programs and games (also newly released retail games)
are (ab)using lots of gpu and cpu power, normally you would think that as technology advances, things would be better, but it gets worse.
So its quit laggy right now :D
