GemRB is not really a Mod. It is an Open-Source Clone that runs Infinity Engine Games such as Baldur's Gate, IceWind Dale, Planescape: Torment...
GemRB actually works on Linux/Unix Systems and Windows, we're searching for a Mac Developer to port it to MacOS X :)

GemRB will have many improvements, and it is expecially designed for Modders, featuring new In-Game Scripting commands, a Python GUI Scripting, and a 'nothing is hardcoded' feature that makes GemRB the more versatile RPG Game Engine on the Net :D

This is totally free!!!

Would it be possible to get LGPL licence? My team is working on new mmorpg, and we don't want to HAVE TO make it gpl. 90% we will do it after testing process, but you know...
