Windows 10 Black Screen with BG II & GemRB [Solved - See Post#3]

Damn when you finally get GemRB working for Windows 7 and move to Win 10 and it is all over and from the scratch again.

The 72 line says :

    StartWindow = GemRB.LoadWindow(7)

I dunno how to fix it. I installed Python 27 32 bit.

On Win 10 computer GemRB with my old mega installation from laptop works normally without issues other than lagging I mentioned before. Only the newly installed BG2 (unmodded) on Win 10 computer gives me black screen. Screen turns black after logo/intro videos/before the main menu.

Well it if it works with a different game install on the same machine and same gemrb, then it can't be a gemrb problem.

 

What's the first error you get? I also doubt you have a 32-bit system, so it's pretty amazing if the setup works with 32-bit python.

Found out what was causing black screen. It was my incorrect gemrb.cfg configuration settings.

I specified those paths underlined in red. This config gave me black screen cancer. Adding # before the red lines gave me black screen cancer cure.

But this is weird. Because I use the same config (only swap folder names) and my old game setup from win7 the one heavily modded works with red paths specified.
