I am thinking about playing Baldurs Gate 1 & 2 - What to do?

#1 Posted by amir90 (2154 posts) -

Hey guys, I just bought baldurs gate I & II from gog.com

I do not have an old machine to play it on.
My computer has windows 7.

I have also installed Tutu, but dunno if it worked properly.
I also get lots of flickering in the game.

Any other tips you guys could give me? :D

I seem to remember not having problems after running it in xp compatibility mode.

@ThatFrood:  How do I do that again, just right click > properties > run in windows XP compatibility mode?

Use the BGT mod ( here).  The readme should have the instructions you need.

@Jimbo:  Would I need to uinstall Tutu mod first?
They seem to be the same thing.
