Full Install of BG1
« on: June 17, 2004, 08:58:41 PM »
You dont get this option when installing it. (At least not with The Original Saga)

So here is my problem.. Any time I try zoning into an area where a CD switch is needed, it crashes on me.

So I need to know how to do a full install so I can finaly play this game in piece. (Bought it this morning couldnt stand the low reolution so I got Tutu)

To do a full install, you need to choose a "Custom" install and check *all* of the boxes that are presented to you.

I did that.. then that means there is a bigger problem.. Specificly, I am going from the zone south of friendly arms into friendly arms and its crashing when it tries to load.. I *thought* this was because the install wasnt full and the CD would have had to been changed there but i guess not

Any suggestions then?

I hate doubleposting, anyway I thought I should throw in that it happened going south to beregost as well, so I know it has something to do with cd changing.

I had this problem the first time I used Tutu, it was to do with the movie file that plays when you first arrive at the Friendly Arm.  I just reinstalled the whole thing and it worked the second time.

I've reinstalled it as well, and I know there are movie files for beregost as well as friendly arm Inn.. I will try moving some movie files around, but it always kicks out on the loading screen

okay I am re-fullinstalling and its going a lot slower this time so I assume it messed up last time or something..

And it finished installing and still doesnt work

OKay.. I made a new character and it works now. Thanks
