how about some really good support for multi-monitors? I always thought that RPGs would work really well designed with dual monitors in mind.
That is something that we are definately interested in. Most of us at BioWare develop under 2 monitors and I would LOVE to be able to game that way.

Mass Effect better be released on PC, too, or I'm angry.
Mass Effect is an Xbox 360 exclusive game.

Interesting - before you mentioned it I hadn't even heard of the game.
That is not suprising. We don't have a publisher for it yet and are still early on in it. You can imagine that there will be more info about it once we secure a publisher.

One other question Derek, how many people are on the Live Team?
12.
Thanks for the update, but still feel (in no other better way to explain it) that PC Gamers are getting nerfed over the console market.
A fair statement and your observations about the Live Team and NWN are correct... but you ain't seen nothing yet!

We still make PC games.

Dragon Age is our upcoming PC RPG (with no console plans for it at all). http://www.bioware.com/games/dragon_age/

I am the Technical Producer on the BioWare Live Team, and we on the Live Team deal strictly with PC issues. Been doing it for about 4 years now. I don't own any type of console and am as commited to PC gaming as BioWare is.

Stay tuned...

I guess, when it comes to comments about expansion packs for an existing game, I would like the poster to state whether or not they play the game. I am just curious how many who have commented in this thread are still playing EQ1.

I really don't know what to say. I guess I don't equate "hack" with "edited a wide open, and easily readably text file".

Heh, the BIA movie requires the Indeo codec that according to the Indeo web site, costs $15 and no longer comes with Windows.

Witch's Wake can be played co-operatively and we are looking into MP-specific modules for the future.

Correct, you can backup the install package that you have downloaded or re-download it from the BioWare store at any time, if need be.

I do laugh that people still think that Bill Gates said the 640k statement. There is no citation, no quote, no link to the magazine or newspaper, or audio interview where this happened. On the other hand, we do have this:

http://www.usnews.com/usnews/biztech/gatesivu.htm

http://www.wired.com/news/print/0,1294,1484,00.html

http://techrepublic.com.com/5208-6230-0.html?forumID=9&threadID=150999&start=0

http://www.nybooks.com/articles/15180

And I tend to trust the word from Wired, most of the time.

Thanks, Jade will be showing at the Xbox booth (booth? it takes up half of the hall =). It will be nice to go to E3 for recreational purposes and not having to work a booth this year. This way I can actually see some of the other games.

I have the game and all expansions installed.

2.8 Gig

That includes a bunch of non-game local files in sub directories. Not sure where you are getting 7 Gig from.

To each his own, I guess. First thing I turned off in Raven Shield was the first person view weapon so that it looked like Ghost Recon to me. I do want to see my weapon in games like Quake, UT, etc. where you have 9 weapons to choose from, but for games like Raven Shield and Ghost Recon, where you only have 2, I find the view weapon to just be in my way.
