Last night I was going to start playing BG 1-2 and decided to follow the mod listed above to make the games play as one continuous game. After getting everything set up I went to launch BG2 and it wouldn't launch; it starts up a black screen and gets stuck that way, no crash or anything, I have to use the task manager to close it out. Well, I figured something I had selected to patch in had caused it so I uninstalled BG2 to do a clean install and see if that worked. Same thing, when I run BG2 it starts a black screen and then just hangs there. I then tried to run BG1, which wasn't modded at all, other than connecting it to the BG2 engine, and it does the same thing as well. So I tried a fresh install of BG1, no mods, just to see if it worked, and it does the same thing.
I then tried other infinity engine games to see if it was possibly something related to my computer (although I doubted it as when I first bought and installed these games I ran them all to make sure they worked, and they all did previously). Icewind Dale does the same thing the BG games do. Icewind Dale 2 seems to run fine, with a few graphical errors. Planescape Torment does the same thing the BG games do. So I'm really confused about all of this. Is there a separate way I have to uninstall the mods I had installed other than just installing the core game? Would the mods affect the other IE games? What can I do to fix this?
Additionally, I set the BG mods up on my laptop as I did for my desktop, and it runs perfectly fine. I can play BG1 from the BG2 client, no errors, etc. so I don't think I did anything inherently wrong on my desktop in setting it up.
Any help would be much appreciated.
