Tutorial asks for CD when using GOG packaged BG1/2
« on: June 21, 2013, 08:31:30 AM »
Hi there,

I have the Good Old Games versions of BG1 and 2, which I understand to include all expansions.

I followed the instructions in this thread to create a separate BG1Tuto installation:-

http://www.gog.com/forum/baldurs_gate_series/newbie_guide_modding_bg1_if_you_buy_bg1_bg2_from_gog

The problem i have is that when I start the tutorial the game asks me to insert a CD after I have rolled a character. Obviously, the GOG version doesn't have any CD to insert.

I tried starting the game proper instead of the tutorial and that seemed to work. at least, I wasn't asked for a CD and I was taken to the normal game view. I didn't go anywhere in the game or try to do anything since I had run ut of time so cannot say yet if a CD would be asked for if I tried to do anything.

Is this a known issue perhaps, or do you think I might have done something wrong?

Rob

Hello, and welcome to PPG!

Check Macready's bottom posts in this topic - an issue similar to yours, perhaps.

Hmm, I didn't notice any errors when creating the Tutu install with the Easy Tutu manager app.

All programs in use are they latest versions as of yesterday. I downloaded a fresh copy of everything, including the BG1/2 installers from GOG.

I'll try the main game again, and try to do a bit of exploring. It just unnerves me a little as I'm worried that I'll get halwy through, travel to a new area and then suddenly be asked to pop in a CD...

Do I need to paste my baldur.ini file in here maybe?

That doesn't sound like a happy playthrough, yeah. You can post your ini and hope for a reassurance(you may have to wait a while, though), or try BGT(don't let people rope you into Big World Project. Then your installation will really be screwed. But you may want BG1 NPC, BG2 Tweaks and Level1NPCs for your BG1 game in either case). Hoping for the best is another choice, or you may use a virtual image of someone else's a ToB CD(I'm using mine).

In any case, posting parts of your baldur.ini may help.

I managed to resolve this.

The ini file not not pointing to the correct location for Cd2 data for some reason. I changed it to match the location for the other cd's and then the Tutorial fired up ok.
