I just wanted to say thank you to the OP for creation of this thread. Your instructions were easy to follow, and I am now looking forward to playing the Baldur's Gate saga more than ever.

I have one question though. Would the 1pp high quality music for Baldur's Gate I be installed before merging, after merging (into the Baldur's Gate II directory), or is it not something to try?

GoJays2025: You're in the right place, I think.
There should be 3 buttons that greet you on the first menu screen - "Baldur's Gate", "Throne of Bhaal", and "Quit Game".
Click on "Baldur's Gate".
Then click on "Single Player".
The menu that comes up after will have "New Game", "Load Game", "Back", and "New BG2 Game".
Click on "New Game" to start from Baldur's Gate 1 or "New BG2 Game" to start from Baldur's Gate 2.

Hope that helped!
I think maybe add a line on the first page as I was thoroughly confused until I got to this page of the forum.

dkclemons1: It's cool, man. I did that and now it's too large. The character avatars are off the screen. Should I just try a fresh install?

famouswolfe: A thought just occurred to me, what resolution are you running in your background? A lot of the time, running a game while you have the desktop resolution set to Retina level will cause havoc in your games. Have you tried lowering it down to 1920x1080 (in other words, 1080P)?
I'm running 1600x900 in the background. How would I go about changing it? I've never had this issue before on any of the computers I've installed it on so it's frustrating to be having so many issues this time.
So I'd like to play through the game with just the BGII Fix pack for now, do I need to start a new game after applying it or can I continue where I am currently (I've only beaten the first dungeon)?

Thanks for the OP.

For 100% application of all fixes you must start a new game. While most of the fixes that won't 'take' in an already started game won't actually break your current game, they will also not be applied. This is especially true of some fixes to NPCs and unique creatures that you have already met, or areas that you have already visited. That does not mean you cannot carry on, only that some of the fixes will not be applied.

On a Macbook you change it in the System Settings menu. Me, I leave it at the recommended settings (retina resolution by default). Then, when I launch BGT I'll hit command-key+return a couple times and that usually fixes the problem.

I'll see if I can figure it out.

Thanks for the help, guys. I appreciate it.
