BG movies needed?
« on: August 24, 2004, 01:49:31 PM »
Hi,
YES, I can read and I know it sais *full* install of BG for Tutu, but I have problems with the disk space and I wanted to ask, whether all BG movies are really needed to play BG with Tutu? Are the movies only atmospheric fill-ins than could be left out or will the game crash if they are not installed? (BTW, Tutu sees the BG custom installation without the movies as a full installation, but I want to make sure before I start playing.)
Thanks!

AFAIK, if you don't have the movies installed, the game hangs itself when it tries to play one.
You might try to switch them off by setting Disable Movies=1 in the baldur.ini, though I'm not sure if that'll work.

Wenn die Movies nicht installiert sind, hängt sich das Spiel meines Wissens auf, sobald ein Film abgespielt werden soll.
Du kannst versuchen, die Movies ganz auszuschalten, indem du in der baldur.ini Disable Movies=1 setzt; ich bin mir aber nicht sicher, ob das wirkt.

In der Tat! Hi, Caswallon und Evaine Dian! Bist Du auch in der deutschen Community aktiv (damit meinte ich Evaine)? Dein Name ist mir noch nie aufgefallen... (Heisst aber nix, bin selber die Newbie) Also, mein eigentliches Problem war, dass das BG-Installationsprogramm den freien Speicher nicht erkannt hat und ich mich nicht getraut habe, einfach mehr zu installieren. Diese Zweifel sind aber mittlerweile Dank Cyrics und Fridtjofs Hilfe (ratet mal, wo  ;) ) verschwunden und ich werde sicherheitshalber eine neue, volle Installation machen.

I solved the problem with the disk space so I will make a "real" full install of BG before running Tutu to prevend the game from crashing, thanks anyway.

Is Rosenranken.de still alive?

Definitely! And that's the German forum I meant, Evaine.  :)
