I think you should've added another option.
"No I don't have it, I have to wait till it is in stores here. (Non US)"
How long would it take for IWD2 to get to Europe?
Wed, 28th Aug '02, 5:22pm
Not yet, Later today or tomorrow, Friday at the latest I think. Soon...soon I will have my Ice Dice.
Wed, 28th Aug '02, 5:25pm

Grr! I called Electronics Boutique about my preordered copy of the Collector's Edition...Amazingly, the regular edition is out, but the Collector's doesn't ship til Friday...WTF???
How cheesy is that!?!?
Wed, 28th Aug '02, 8:28pm
Doesn't ship until Friday?
Usually, it's GOOD policy to ship out your collector's edtions before anything or anyone else, period.
It's making me rethink my policy, very very rapidly.
As in "Yeah, Interplay? Cancel that order. I'm going with Amazon instead..."

I think that it will take longer, it always does!

Thu, 29th Aug '02, 7:37am
Should add another reply - I'm waiting for the patch. Because it needs one.

What about an option for the poor pond scum like me with a computer that has bg1 running jerky.
But wait till i get a new shiney pc. Then i will have it, oh yes, then i shall buy it.
Thu, 29th Aug '02, 4:21pm
I just ordered it from chips & bits :)
I was suppose to do it for neverwinternights but change my mind but now it's done for Icewind dale 2 :)
youhou, I just receive a email from chip & bits that they receive my order, I'm so happy :)
excuse me, it's my first time... lol that I ordered from the internet... lololol

Taking the long walk down Michigan Avenue this morning ... my only dilemma ... do I install it on my current laptop (which I have to turn in on Tuesday) or do I wait until Tuesday night to install it???
Thu, 29th Aug '02, 11:42pm
Wait til Tuesday, no point having to re-start.
Fri, 30th Aug '02, 2:45am
I don't have it yet, because I refuse to buy any game without giving it at the very least a week after release before buying it, for them to work out any bugs there might be and make my game as painless as possible.
Fri, 30th Aug '02, 12:10pm
It's pre-ordered, so I suppose in that sense I've bought it. Just not yet available in the UK....
Still shows a release date of 13 September on Gamer UK, but I wouldn't be too surprised if that changes to match other European versions later in the month.
Still, at least some of the major bugs should be ironed out by then. :D
Fri, 30th Aug '02, 1:17pm
Yeah I agree with a hand-full of posters here. I'll buy it eventually, but after the original IWD came out, I've learned to wait until all the bugs are fixed and patches are released. Just look to NWN and PoR for examples. I see no need to be an unofficial 'beta' tester. I must give props though, so thanks to all those folks who couldn't wait to buy these games. If it wasn't for you guys, I wouldn't have realized thats it's O.K. to be patient when it comes to buying games.
Fri, 30th Aug '02, 3:23pm
Got it yesterday, good fun.
Fri, 30th Aug '02, 3:43pm
I'm from the same school of thought that Thorongil is - patience. The bugs will be worked out and the price will drop some. (Heck, I'm still waiting for the price of ToB to drop more.) Although I want that Collector's Edition of IWD 2.

I need a new answer to the second question, "NO I don't have it but I ordered it MONTHS ago, where IS it???" :help:
I'm starting to get emotional about this. Does it show? :hmm:
Fri, 30th Aug '02, 4:59pm
Yeah, I'm pissed. Bought it last night, tried to install it, and it gives my computer an error message (and crashes the whole thing).
Borrowing a car to return it to Best Buy over lunch :(
Fri, 30th Aug '02, 8:38pm
Whoa, don't give up so quickly Mat! The official boards already have solutions for some problems...
