Bt Builder is an open source implementation of the Bard's Tale Construction Set. The eventual goal is to make a game builder that can implement the three main Bard's Tale games in addition to Construction Set games. Other possible extensions include Wasteland and Dragon Wars. The editor file formats and custom pictures have been deciphered. At current we do not intend to decipher all file formats instead a new free collection of graphics and sounds will be included with the game. Work has started on a primitive editor. The game interface is fairly usable at the moment.

Sep 29, 2014: Bt Builder 0.5.0 released. Armor and hit bonus spells support not stacking bonuses. Fixed crash when pressing 1 on inventory screen without any items. Fixed crash when you delete a person from the roster who is in your party and then remove them from your party. Fixed crash when you save a party with an existing name and have to pick a new name. Save spell effects properly so that characters restored from a save file have the right stats. (Previous save files will not be corrected.) Add monsters to the roster when removed from the party.
