NOTICE

The Circle of Eight modpack has been upgraded to version 8.1.0. Please see download links below.

***

After ten long years, the Circle of Eight is pleased to present the 'final' version of our modpack - Circle of Eight Modpack Version 8. This release falls ten years to the day after the release of The Temple of Elemental Evil in North America. It is the culmination of years of dedicated work from literally dozens of contributors, and it serves as testimony to the enduring passion for quality turn-based strategy games in the modern era.

The Circle of Eight Modpack

As usual, the modpack comes in standard and new content editions. You can download the standard (left) and new content (right) versions below.

The Circle of Eight would like to 
sincerely thank Troika Games and all its employees for ten years of enjoyment, entertainment, enlightenment, amusement, frustration, and ultimately triumph. We only hope that the modpack brings ToEE a bit closer to what you had wanted it to be from the start.

To everyone else, thank you for playing. And as usual, we sincerely hope that you enjoy this final edition of The Circle of Eight Modpack.

- The Circle of Eight Team

Hopefully one of the local sages can offer me a few helpful tidbits: TFX has successfully activated yet when I launch the game (either by clicking the "play" button within the TFX interface or by opening the TOEE short-cut on my desktop) the game lauches without the Atari icon (sound-intact), then the load screen pops-up only to close. No error messages occur and the TFX fix doesn't identify any problems. I obtained TOEE from GOG and have the TFX within the GOG/TOEE folder. Any thoughts on where to go next? Prior to downloading the CO8 7.5 mod, my newly purchased TOEE (patched to 2) worked. Thanks in advance.

How does this mod compare to Baldurs Gate 2?

Is it closer to the BG games (in depth story and characters) or IWD (generic hacknslash so I hear)

I feel that the story is very good, although it's not as go here see this person do that and then go there and do this type of thing. TOEE is a little more of a "sand box" type approach to things. You have a journal and the quests you've initiated are shown there, but it's more or less up to you which you do first and how you handle them.

If you've played any PnP DnD this game will hit home with you. And if you like a good turn based RPG with high quality graphics and sound and more than a few surprises this is for you.

If you want a game where someone will hold your hand and send you to and from each quest with no room for exploring and no freedom to choose how you solve things, this this isn't for you.

btw, Icewind Dale is not a Hack n Slash in my opinion, although TOEE has a lot deeper story.

I hope this helps.

First, congratulations on modpack!

I really wanted to play this mod, but I'm having trouble installing. I use the GoG and did the installation of "Circle_of_Eight_Modpack_7.0.0_NC_Setup" in the folder: C: \ Program Files \ GOG.com \ Temple of Elemental evil ... as requested. The problem is that when I get the "Circle of Eight Modpack" occurs the following error: ".. The application failed to initialize properly (0xc0000135) Click OK to terminate the application" It is finished.
Could anyone help me with this installation?

Thank you!
Ps: Using Windows XP.
PS2: I'm Brazilian, sorry for English.
