    Your widescreen folder does not contain tranlations to the strings it should, aka try to extract the archive again so that the widescreen folder is actually in the game folder, so that the translations aka the strings with @number actually say real things.

    My widescreen folder DOES contain the translations. And it's on my BG+TSC and BG2 install folders:

    manuel@hp15db0:~/Downloads/bg$ ls

    manuel@hp15db0:~/Downloads/bg$ ls tra/
    english  french  italian  portoguese  russian  spanish
    manuel@hp15db0:~/Downloads/bg$ ls tra/english/

    As you can see, everything is in place and tolowered. So that's not the problem at all.


    What *could* be a problem is this weidu.log file that the GOG version og BG1+TSC includes:


    // Log of Currently Installed WeiDU Mods
    // The top of the file is the 'oldest' mod
    // ~TP2_File~ #language_number #component_number // [Subcomponent Name -> ] Component Name [ : Version]
    ~DDRAWFIX/DDRAWFIX.TP2~ #0 #0 // DDrawFix -> Force DirectDraw Emulation: v1.0



    Maybe the problem is that the GOG "complete" versions come with incompatible patches applied??

  2. NOTE: THE PROBLEM WAS just that the "widescreen" folder has to go directly into my game install directory. Not "widescreen" contents, but the folder itself. Then "weinstall" will find everything it needs!



    Hi there,


    I'm trying to apply the widescreen fix, latest version, on GNU/Linux, but I am seeing this:

    manuel@hp15db0:~/Downloads/bg$ weinstall widescreen
    weidu --log "setup-widescreen.debug" "widescreen.tp2"
    [weidu] WeiDU version 24600

    I am using the GOG version of BG1 ( wich includes the TSC expansion.


    Any idea on what's going on?

  3. Hi there,

    I have been using GEMRB on GNU/Linux for years now, happily on PC and Raspberry Pi. I have always used it with the SDL2 video plugin and no OpenGL (SDL2 uses OpenGL_ES for image scaling under the hood anyway).


    Thing is, is it possible to setup a better font scaling method? I have tried different fonts with the BG games, since they are customizable, but the problem is always the same: letter borders seem "grainy" in an ugly way. It's as if the letters were scaled using nearest instead of linear.I have already changed:




    in gemrb/plugins/SDLVideo/SDL20Video.cpp, and things look smooth... except for the text.


    So, the problem is not the font (I like the default font) but the scaling method it seems. Maybe fonts need some sub-pixel fixing to look fine as they do in most programs using modern displays? IS that available somehow in GEMRB?
