Android, GemRB - Problem with BG2

Recommended Posts

the game isn't installed on the external sd card but on the internal storage of the phone. is it an issue?

i tried this:

 

GamePath=/storage/emulated/0/app-data/net.sourceforge.gemrb/bg2

CD1=/storage/emulated/0/app-data/net.sourceforge.gemrb/bg2/data

CD2=/storage/emulated/0/app-data/net.sourceforge.gemrb/bg2/cd2/data

CD3=/storage/emulated/0/app-data/net.sourceforge.gemrb/bg2/cd3/data

CD4=/storage/emulated/0/app-data/net.sourceforge.gemrb/bg2/cd4/data

CD5=/storage/emulated/0/app-data/net.sourceforge.gemrb/bg2/cd5/data

 

the game starts normaly but i have the blue screen issue.

i tried something else:

 

GamePath=./bg2

CD1=./bg2/data

CD2=./bg2/cd2/data

CD3=./bg2/cd3/data

CD4=./bg2/cd4/data

CD5=./bg2/cd5/data

 

but it just doesn't work either....

whatever i type for path setting, i get that damn fucking blue screen!

 

what's going on with this? i mean everywhere i checked, tutorials, guides, etc.. state that it's path related but i think i've tried to type every possible path and it just doesn't work!

and because there's no cd1 folder in my game directory and the datas HAVE to be somewhere else, i tried ./bg2/data i tried ./bg2 i tried ./bg2/override i tried ./bg2/cache

i mean... seriously... where are those goddamn fucking datas?!

nothing works!

i just tried

 

GamePath=/storage/emulated/0/app-data/net.sourceforge.gemrb/bg2

CD1=/storage/emulated/0/app-data/net.sourceforge.gemrb/bg2

CD2=/storage/emulated/0/app-data/net.sourceforge.gemrb/bg2

CD3=/storage/emulated/0/app-data/net.sourceforge.gemrb/bg2

CD4=/storage/emulated/0/app-data/net.sourceforge.gemrb/bg2

CD5=/storage/emulated/0/app-data/net.sourceforge.gemrb/bg2

 

and

 

 

GamePath=/storage/emulated/0/app-data/net.sourceforge.gemrb/

CD1=/storage/emulated/0/app-data/net.sourceforge.gemrb/

CD2=/storage/emulated/0/app-data/net.sourceforge.gemrb/

CD3=/storage/emulated/0/app-data/net.sourceforge.gemrb/

CD4=/storage/emulated/0/app-data/net.sourceforge.gemrb/

CD5=/storage/emulated/0/app-data/net.sourceforge.gemrb/

 

in both cases, again, bg2 starts but when i create a new game,the GUI is there but in the place where the action takes place, i get the blue screen.

come on, forget about cd1 as a folder. Is there a Data subfolder in data/? Do you have biffs laying around in the game dir? You could use alogcat to see some more debug output (eg. which .bif is missing), but it's tedious for your old version.

I've got no other folder in data. Only 70 bif files.

In the game directory, i've got no bif file.

 

I've downloaded alogcat, but i just fail to figure out how it works. There's just a bunch of lines written that seem to have no relation with BG2.

 

What do you mean by my "old" version? The version of the game? old version of gemrb??

From what you said, i think the most probable paths should be:

GamePath=/storage/emulated/0/app-data/net.sourceforge.gemrb/bg2

CD1=/storage/emulated/0/app-data/net.sourceforge.gemrb/bg2/

CD2=/storage/emulated/0/app-data/net.sourceforge.gemrb/bg2/cd2/

CD3=/storage/emulated/0/app-data/net.sourceforge.gemrb/bg2/cd3/

CD4=/storage/emulated/0/app-data/net.sourceforge.gemrb/bg2/cd4/

CD5=/storage/emulated/0/app-data/net.sourceforge.gemrb/bg2/cd5/

 

Also try with:

CaseSensitive=1

I don't get it. When i had my HTC Desire HD, i installed gemrb and BG2 in a matter of minutes. The paths were easy to set up and i remember playing right away. At the time, i had the GoG version of BG2, as i do now, and it seems to me that gemrb wasn't any different.

I just can't figure out what's wrong...

I tried what you suggested but it doesn't seem to work.

Also, casesensitive was on 1 from the beginning.

in the alogcat log, you can search for all lines with "Searching for" (and ERROR) and see which files are looked up. At the end there should also be a note about a missing MOS file and that is the thing that is either missing/unreadable from your install for some reason or was moved for some reason. Or just the paths are misconfigured, but without the errors you can just keep guessing indefinitely.

Android is not case sensitive - at least from my testing and research. My CaseSensitive entry is commented out.

 

This works for me with no problems:

GamePath=/sdcard/All_Mine/Games/BG2

CD1=/sdcard/All_Mine/Games/BG2/

CD2=/sdcard/All_Mine/Games/BG2/

CD3=/sdcard/All_Mine/Games/BG2/

CD4=/sdcard/All_Mine/Games/BG2/

CD5=/sdcard/All_Mine/Games/BG2/

CD6=/sdcard/All_Mine/Games/BG2/

 

Now, as you can tell I've moved the default directory (internal SD Card) to my own directory on the external SD Card. I had BG1 and BG2 both working at the same time.

 

I changed the cache too, but don't remember if this was necessary:

CachePath=/sdcard/All_Mine/Games/BG2/cache

 

I know you've tried most of the suggestions and their variations, but I thought maybe, just maybe you'll see something you may have missed before.

Alright, i'm erasing everything and starting all over again.

I'll install the game on my external SD card.

 

Wish me luck...

Ok, i reinstalled the whole thing from scratch.

This time, i put the gemrb folder on my external SD card, not on the phone internal storage.

 

The game itself is inside a BG2 folder i created which is located in the net.sourceforge.gemrb folder.

 

After MANY unsuccessful other tries, I tried this:

 

GamePath=/storage/extSdCard/app-data/net.sourceforge.gemrb/BG2

CD1=/storage/extSdCard/app-data/net.sourceforge.gemrb/BG2/data

CD2=/storage/extSdCard/app-data/net.sourceforge.gemrb/BG2/CD2

CD3=/storage/extSdCard/app-data/net.sourceforge.gemrb/BG2/CD3

CD4=/storage/extSdCard/app-data/net.sourceforge.gemrb/BG2/CD4

CD5=/storage/extSdCard/app-data/net.sourceforge.gemrb/BG2/CD5

 

 

Casesensitive is set to 1. I pay attention about how i type the paths.

 

I set the cache, override, etc.. paths as follow:

CachePath=/storage/extSdCard/app-data/net.sourceforge.gemrb/cache

#GUIScriptsPath=/storage/extSdCard/app-data/net.sourceforge.gemrb/GUIScripts

#GameDataPath=/storage/extSdCard/app-data/net.sourceforge.gemrb/BG2/data

#GameOverridePath=/storage/extSdCard/app-data/net.sourceforge.gemrb/BG2/override

#GemRBOverridePath=/storage/extSdCard/app-data/net.sourceforge.gemrb/override

 

Other options are set as follow:

#Screen width

Width=800

#Screen height

Height=600

#Bits per pixel [integer:16,32]

Bpp=16

#Fullscreen [boolean]

Fullscreen=1

 

 

#CaseSensitive=1

#GameOnCD=0

GUIEnhancements = 1

TouchScrollAreas = 1

#SkipIntroVideos=1

#DrawFPS=1

FogOfWar=1

#EnableCheatKeys=1

 

 

AND IT WORKS!!

 

A HUGE thanks to all who helped me, thanks for your time and your patience :)

 

And now ladies and gentlemen, i'm gonna have helluvafun time with BG2!

Hello everyone, now it’s my turn to use this thread to ask you for help.

 

I installed GemRB from Play Store (it’s version 0.7.0.1) and did everything according to the instructions provided (with the help of some internet guides). But when I run the program, the intro movies play and then there is only a black screen with BG2 cursor and ‘Ab’ icon in the top left corner resembling a keyboard key.

 

I searched for solutions and tried installing the newest version. I found this thread: http://bit.ly/1mq8DPt , but instructions there didn’t help me – after installing GemRB .apk and trying to run it only a black screen appeared and the program closed.

 

I would provide you with a log, but I don’t know how to do it – I tried using aLogcat, but I don’t know how to and I don’t understand the guides from the internet.

 

I, the poor, clueless creature humbly await your aid.

Thank you in advance!
