Great, now I know I can get mods to work with these digital editions..

I have my CD copies - but it's nice going digital. :-)

I kinda had already, by making my own images n' stuff, but I like the way GOG games are packaged. :-)
BG1 looks fantastic with EasyTutu. Thanks to OP! Loving it :D
I just bought Baldur's Gate 1 & 2 from GOG.

I have been told the best thing is to install a mod called "Big World Project" that allows you to play both BG1 and BG2 from the beginning as one game using the BG2 engine.

is this compatible with easytutu?

Also, i'm playing on a 1920x1080 display, would I still need to run the widescreen fix even with the Big World project mod?

I just bought both BG1 and BG2 (TOB disk was scratched beyond repair on my 2nd group of BG2 disks, but I had a full working set of BG1 Disks, I just wanted them all downloadable)

I installed both, ran the configuration for BG2 (I think this is important) then installed Easy BGTutu. The game runs like a charm and is beautiful.

Now I am off to play through BG1 as a Priestess of Lathander.

Keep gaming.
Hi, I went through all these mods and after playing a little bit I was wondering if there's a way I can increase the amount of ammo (arrows/bullets) I can have in a stack.

Edit: I found a fix through some google-fu. If anyone else is interested in a fix like this check out this mod @ http://www.gibberlings3.net/bg2tweaks//index.php . Though some of these changes look like cheating the installer will allow you to be specific in the things you want to install, like me I only wanted to install the increase limits of potions, arrows, scrolls.

Just wanted to say thank you for that original post. It was a pain in the patoot getting everything to work after the GOG downloads and suprisingly took forever to happen upon this post when Googling for answers, but this cleared everything up...even the flickering/mouse trails problem, which seemed to be resolved by getting the Widescreen mod...NOT by doing all sorts of nonsense many other posts on many other sites suggested: once it was told to run in 1920x1080 (my monitor's native resolution with a Radeon 5970...so I think people should aim at their native resolution) all those artifcats went away completely.

Soooo psyched for this...bought it waaaay back when it all came out, suffered a computer implosion and never got around to finally playing it through. Thanks again.

BTW, one thing that might be helpful for people..something I had to intuit when initial attempts failed and which wasn't explicitly explained...is that the mod installs for things like WIdescreen and Unfinished Business go into the Tutu folder for BG1 (C:/Program Files (x86)\BaldursGate TuTu) and into the BGII folder for that game (C:/Program Files (x86)/GOG.com/Baldurs Gate II). I know it's probably just because people assume that others will recognize something like this, which really does make perfect sense when you think it through, but it is probably only 20% obvious to your average dude trying to figure out how to mod (or more likely "fix", given the nature of the flickering display issues) what they just downloaded, and who probably figured he could just go right ahead and start playing without having to engage in this mess and look under the hood.

To add a solution to a possible common problem others may be having following this guide:

When installing EasyTuTu, you may experience the setup.exe hanging.
There's 2 reported solutions for this that I found here:
- Killing the process rundll32 in Task Monitor
- Enabling Compatibility mode with Windows XP SP2 for the following files: _ISDel.exe, setup.exe & TutuCore.exe

I personally used the 1st solution which worked instantly.

That is awesome. Thank you so much! For everything!

I know there is an installation guide out there that was already out when BG 1 and 2 came out on GoG. It was updated specifically to reference the GoG release as well. I remember the site was laid out in steps (like Steps 1-4 were installation/patching) and it said "if you just bought the GoG version, skip to Step 5" or something along those lines.

I don't really NEED this particular guide, but it's really bugging me that I can't find it anymore. Does anyone remember what site that guide was on?
There is a beta of the new EasyTutu installer available. Feedback is encouraged - I'm particularly interested in hearing from anyone who was struggling with the old installer. The purpose of this new version is to solve such problems on newer O/Ses (Vista/7) and hardware (x64).

Also, this version was developed using gog.com distributions of BG1 and 2.

This installer worked great! thanks!
I just posted a new beta of the updated EasyTutu installer which (hopefully) corrected an issue for those using the old CD distribution of BG2.

Everything looks small in this version.

My eyes are hurting.

The GUI fills the screen I set at 1920 by 1080 but the playing area looks really small as do the characters.

Squinting to read the dialogue even with the fontpatch installed.

It makes everything look awesome this mod,but everything looks tiny and my eyes are klling me.

I think I will go back to the original game because I can't play it this way with my eyesight,the way it is.


Gog's version fills the screen anyway at 1920 by 1080 without the need for a widescreen fix and the fonts are nice and large,even though they are a bit on the fuzzy side.

I suppose we can never expect an old game to be perfect on modern systems and monitors.
