bgt and gemRB (my first time:))

Recommended Posts


I'm trying to gemrb some time on the Alcatel One Touch pixi 7. gemrb versions: with this link http://sourceforge.net/projects/gemrb/files/Other%20Binaries/android/0.8.0/ - did not work (black screen and crash to the desktop). Version gemrb_11bfc23_20120711.apk 2012-07-11 worked.

I put in it:

Download gemrb override and scripts

Date instalation location - default

gemRB.cfg.sample renamed the file on gemRB.cfg

I set in cfg:

Gametype = bg2

Screen width 960

Scren height 540

GamePath =. /

CD1 =. / Bg2 / data /

CD2 =. / Bg2 / data /

CD3 =. / Bg2 / data /

CD4 =. / Bg2 / data /

CD5 =. / Bg2 / data / (bg2 is the name of the folder with the game)

I tried to insert a folder bg2 to:

sdcard / app-data / here


sdcard / gemrb / here

I wanted to play in:

BGT, where bg2 is clean and bg1 has mods

All the modes are of the type WeiDU and instal them in the order:

Baldur's Gate II Fixpack

Baldur's Gate Trilogy

BG1 Unfinished Business

BG1 NPC Project

Widescreen Mod

Bigger Fonts

after turning gemRB - does not work crash to the desktop

GemRB version 0.8.3-alpha1-debug.apk-2015-07-12 - I have not tried

Can you upload GemRB.log somewhere?

were can i found logs?


/storage/sdcard0/gemrb/bg2/gemrb.log its empty (I looked him via notepad ++ application in tablet)


before installing the latest version gemrb I have formatted the card, so i dont have bg2 files on it.

hmm, is at least its timestamp (modification date) recent? Logs are written on the fly, so even force-killing gemrb should leave a trace (does so here). So perhaps android broke it in the wrapper, not later.


But why are you trying without a game? Either try with the gamedemo or put bg2 back on, since it can't work without data.

I thought to firstly fires up the program itself, then choose the game ... my bgt have almost 6gb and copies itself 5h :) - i will download demo version.

i just copy all files bg2 demo (without .exe) to:


/storage/sdcard0/gemrb/bg2/ here (not bg2demo folder but all files inside bg2demo folder)


run gemrb - black screen and crash to desktop.


/storage/sdcard0/gemrb/bg2/gemrb.log empty via tablet and windows

did you change your GamePath, CachePath and CD1(other cd paths don't matter) to point there or to its subfolder?

Try with 640x480 for a test. The builds worked in the emulator and for someone else, but I think we were both on pretty old android versions.
