BG 1 just crashed to the desktop. I believe I was entering a building but I can't recall for certain. I'm still in Candle Keep. I followed the conservative modders guide to the letter. So far it has only happened once. However, considering how many crashes I encountered once I hit Bergost last time I'd rather make sure something isn't wrong with my install.


I experienced a high volume of crashes on a previous install of BG 1 once I reached Bergost.

If I need to uninstall the game is there a way preserve my character build? I'd rather not have to go through 15 minutes of re-rolling.

I've included my my weidu log and baldur.ini below. It is worth noting that I do not have BG 1 installed in the Program Files directory.

You have installed the widescreen mod before all others. A no-no. It needs to be installed last -- not counting TWM_GUI in your list.

Hickory: You have installed the widescreen mod before all others. A no-no. It needs to be installed last -- not counting TWM_GUI in your list.
So install the other mods first then install the widescreen and gui mod? Time to uninstall BG 1 again I guess.

Considering I installed the mods in the wrong order, would importing my current character after I have everything installed correctly cause any problems?

Importing your character will be fine, but do not use the same saved game. Start from scratch.

Glad to hear it. Thanks Hickory. To minimize the chance of this happening again, I'm only going to use the widescreen mod, GUI mod, Unfinished Business, and the Tweak Pack. I'm only using the tweak pack for a few of the convenience tweaks.

I just finished installing everything. I installed the mods in the following order:
Baldurdash bugfixes and text update
Unfinished Business
Mini Quests and Encounters
BG1 Tweak Pack
Widescreen Mod
GUI Mod.

Hopefully this is the last time I have to re-install BG 1 for awhile.

I pasted my Weidu log in below. Everything looks correct as far as I can tell.

Thanks for all the help Hickory.

Unfortunately, re-installing did not correct the issue. The game just crashed to the desktop after I entered the storeroom with rats in Candle Keep.

Are there any other common reasons for BG to crash like this?

EDIT: I installed BG and the same mods on my Windows XP dual boot partition. The game crashed to desktop when I entered the Candle Keep Inn.

I know you must be irritated by having to reinstall, but I suggest you try again, but this time do not use the Baldurdash fixes. I have found that they actually have bugs in them. For instance, the map transition for Ulgoth's Beard is broken with those fixes, just to name one. I have had trouble with them, and never use them --- they are not needed with the GOG version of the game. Also, install one mod at a time, then play the tutorial... install the next mod, start again and play the tutorial... etc. This way you will identify which mod is causing it, if it happens again. If it doesn't, you know it was the Baldurdash fixes (assuming you don't install them).

After my last post I ran BG 1 in Windows XP SP3 Compatibility mode on my Windows 7 partition. I was able to make it through the Prologue with no crashes. I probably got lucky though and would experience them later on.

I'll be re-installing BG 1 with the same mods I've been using minus the Baldurdash bug fixes later today. If the game crashes again I'll try installing each mod one at a time until I find the culprit.

I do have one question. You said the Baldurdash bug fixes are not needed for the GOG version. Did GOG already fix the issues the Baldudash bug fixes would have corrected?

Thanks again for the help Hickory.

GOG didn't fix anything. The Baldurdash fixes are very old fixes (last updated 2001), and GOG incorporates most of the currently available, and relevant game fixes for BG1 & 2.

No it doesn't. GOG BG1 has nothing fixed since TotSC Patch Release Version 1.3.5521 from 1999

But I agree the problem is most likely the Baldurdash text update not being compatible with the GOG version.

Is there another fix pack available that is compatible that I could use?

Unfortunately I'm still experiencing crashes. I had Unfinished Business, the mini quests mod, The tweak pack, and the Widescreen and GUI mode installed. The first two crashes were when I entered the Candle Keep inn. The third was while I was walking around in the Candle Keep Inn. Whether i have the Windows XP compatibility mode on or not makes no difference.

I'm going to try removing the mini quests mod first.

BG 1 doesn't have a debug mode that would allow us to pin down the exact cause does it?
I removed the mini quest mod and I'm still seeing crashes. This time the game crashed while I was in the Infirmary.
I'd rather not remove the remaining mods. Is there anything else that has been known to cause crashes like this?
