That's pretty massive in the long run.
I'm pretty sure the original game's default difficulty was "normal" and that you had to manually increase it to "core" difficulty.

I'll know for sure tomorrow though. I'm going to install the original game and play them simultaneously so I can compare them better.

The guaranteed scroll scribing and max hitpoints on level ups was only in BG2.
