Hi guys, I have a bit of a problem with Baldur's Gate 1 & 2 multiplayer.
So first of all, with the Serial connection, it says "Cannot connect to the game session." And when I try to Create a game, I go to "New Game" and click on it, but nothing happens. The same happens with "Load Game." It also immediately silences any music that is playing at the time (in-game).
And then it's the same with IPX. I can't "New Game" or "Load Game", and the music cuts out.
But with TCP/IP, instead of not doing anything, it freezes for 5 seconds after clicking the "New Game" button and then it goes to a black screen, which then leads to the game crashing and me having to open task manager to close the game itself, which is "Not responding.".
If anybody has any information that may help me with this annoying little problem, I woulc be grateful. Thanks again!
Me and a few friends tried to play the game in multiplayer with no luck. We eventually figured out how to make it work, it's really weird but after fiddling with random options in the game we could play multiplayer.
What you need to do is to play the game in windowed mode and join one another via direct IP multiplayer, as long as you play the game in windowed mode it should work, it's weird I know, but try it. It will 'freeze' for a while when you join the game via direct IP, but that is normal just be patient and you will be able to join your friend.
Everyone should use windowed mode. When you start playing you can just use ALT+Enter if you want to play in fullscreen once you got your game going.
