Trouble with BGConfig (BG2)
« on: July 03, 2013, 01:59:43 PM »
I could really use some help. I'm stuck behind an old laptop and I recently had to put Linux on it because Windows Vista got all broken and stupid. I can't play many games on it due to a few hardware limitations, but I know the Baldur's Gate series work fine. Well, I can't configure any graphics settings, which is why I am here.

BGConfig doesn't want to store it's settings properly. Testing the graphics settings crashes BGConfig, so it won't ever accept anything I change (it forces you to do a graphics test, or it won't save anything). I'm running it through Wine, which is in all likelihood the culprit somehow. However, since I do not have the luxury of running it outside of Wine, I was hoping if I someone could get me some prebaked config files? Just configure your installation as I need it, then archive the files so I can download it from some place (email is fine, I'll send a PM),

Generally I need all settings maxed, but I'll quickly go over the important stuff anyway. Difficulty: Core Rules. Then I need all graphics settings maxed. Use 3D hardware acceleration. All three sliders to Maximum PC (600 Mhz). Footstep sounds & attack sounds ON. Critical hit screen shake ON. Translucent shadows ON. All 'learn spell' info ON. Enable brightening, high & mid level. Gamespy disabled, of course. No automatic speed adjustment. Unsupported resolution: 1280x960! Fullscreen, 32 bit. 3D animations ON, 3d acceleration On.

I'm really stuck with this, I hope I can find some help here. I'm not exactly sure which files are involved. I'm sorry. I'm guessing at least the .ini files.

I'll edit your topic title to mention Linux, so that Linux-knowledgeable guys will look here.

I'd also advise you to search this forum and other more active forums for the solution(bioware forums, sorcerers.net forums and SHSforums.net may have some help) and maybe ask there, too.

Please remove it, it will just reduce the amount of views. I don't need a 'linux'  solution, I just need a couple of files anyone can get for me.

At one point I had this problem too, then I cleaned off my PC, restored it to its factory defaults.
Baldur.ini can be edited in a text editor, once you have found the file in your main directory.

Great, thanks a million. I thought other files were involved because I couldn't find a setting directly related to those three sliders. But I think they should be good now.  ;D
