    Transfer BG2 save files to another system

    Apparently the game hasn't been updated since May 27, 2016. I think I installed it about a year ago. Wrong: Thursday, June 28, 2018. The GoG's linux version might not have been, but the others have. Sorry, I should have specified, I'm playing the original version of the game, not enhanced.

    Transfer BG2 save files to another system

    Apparently the game hasn't been updated since May 27, 2016. I think I installed it about a year ago.
  3. I installed the GOG version of BG2 on a Linux machine with the following mods: These are the exact same mods and the same version that I had installed on a Windows machine and have been playing for about a year. I transferred the save files from the Windows machine to Linux. The game runs fine and the mods appear to work, but when I try to load one of the save files it freezes. Anything obvious I'm doing wrong?
  4. Hi, @CamDawg! I got a bunch of parse errors during install. I posted the log here if you're interested. Curiously, I got the same errors years ago when I installed a previous version of the patch with the same options. Edit: oops, I posted the same thing about a year ago and you gave me a pretty good explanation why this happens. Sorry!
  5. I installed A Mod for the Orderly (Windows) v5. According to the readme, Mira at Waukeen's Praumenade should carry the key ring. But she doesn't. Is it a problem that I installed this mod mid-game and post biffing?
  6. I think I found a solution that works without disabling 3D acceleration: 1. Download DxWnd and extract the archive. 2. Run dxwnd.exe. 3. Go to Edit > Add. 4. Under the Main tab, enter the path to bgmain.exe. 5. Under the Generic section, uncheck "Run in Window." This will restore your display resolution when the game is minimized. 5. Under the Input tab, Cursor handling section, uncheck "Correct mouse position." 6. Click OK. 7. Double click the newly created icon that appears within the DxWnd program window to run the game.
  7. I think I found a better solution that doesn't require an external monitor. 1. Download DxWnd and extract the archive. 2. Run dxwnd.exe. 3. Go to Edit > Add. 4. Under the Main tab, enter the path to bgmain.exe. 5. Under the Generic section, uncheck "Run in Window." This will restore your display resolution when the game is minimized. 5. Under the Input tab, Cursor handling section, uncheck "Correct mouse position." 6. Click OK. 7. Double click the newly created icon that appears within the DxWnd program window to run the game.
  8. I followed the steps above but it didn't work for me with latest drivers. I found another solution however: 1. Download DxWnd and extract the archive. 2. Run dxwnd.exe. 3. Go to Edit > Add. 4. Under the Main tab, enter the path to bgmain.exe. 5. Under the Generic section, uncheck "Run in Window." This will restore your display resolution when the game is minimized. 5. Under the Input tab, Cursor handling section, uncheck "Correct mouse position." 6. Click OK. 7. Double click the newly created icon that appears within the DxWnd program window to run the game.

    Tweaks Anthology v3 Released

    Nope. It's the standard GOG install plus 1PP and a few tweaks from the anthology. Can I still apply the fix pack or did I mess up the order? On second thought, I might play without it this time. I'm just starting to wrap my head around some of the mechanics and don't want to go changing them.

    Tweaks Anthology v3 Released

    "Increase Gem and Jewelry Stacking" installs with 103 parse warnings and "Increase Scroll Stacking" installs with 17. See http://ix.io/Cc1 and http://ix.io/Cc2, respectively. I installed this right after 1PP. Could that be the problem?

    Window doesn't fill screen on Linux

    When I run `wine bgmain.exe` it throws this error: An assertion failed in ChDimm.cpp at line number 628 Programmer says: Unable to Open BIF:DATA\HD0GMOSC.BIF Edit: oh wow, I just realized the game can't find the data files because of baldur.ini... [Alias] HD0:=C:\GOG Games\Baldur's Gate 2 CD1:=C:\GOG Games\Baldur's Gate 2\data\ CD2:=C:\GOG Games\Baldur's Gate 2\data\ CD3:=C:\GOG Games\Baldur's Gate 2\data\ CD4:=C:\GOG Games\Baldur's Gate 2\data\ CD5:=C:\GOG Games\Baldur's Gate 2\data\ CD6:=C:\GOG Games\Baldur's Gate 2\data\ Seems like something Wine should be able to handle. Hmmm, maybe if I change my WINEPREFIX environment variable... #!/bin/bash export WINEPREFIX="/home/rmorton/Games/Baldurs Gate 2/prefix" cd "$WINEPREFIX/drive_c/GOG Games/Baldur's Gate 2/" wine bgmain.exe It works!!! No changing screen resolution manually or anything (Sorry for the noob error)

    Window doesn't fill screen on Linux

    If you reinstall widescreen and choose 1366x768 resolution, won't it run "fullscreen" ? Probably but then my party will look like ants. In Windows I've always been able to install the widescreen mod at a lower resolution than native and it has always just worked.

    Window doesn't fill screen on Linux

    But I want it to be fullscreen... I'm so confused

    Window doesn't fill screen on Linux

    There is a bgmain.exe but it throws an error. I'll have to try it again but I think the error is just "-1". There's also a baldur.exe which runs a launcher with the option to install or play the game. The play option is greyed out, and the install option does nothing. This is why I'm running the game with the startup script supplied in the GOG distribution. I mentioned this in my other thread.
