I could really use some help. I'm stuck behind an old laptop and I recently had to put Linux on it because Windows Vista got all broken and stupid. I can't play much on it due to a few hardware limitations, but I know the Baldur's Gate series work fine. Well, I can't configure any graphics settings, which is where I need someone's help
BGConfig doesn't want to store it's settings properly. Testing the graphics settings crashes BGConfig, so it won't ever accept anything I change (it forces you to do a graphics test, or it won't save anything). I'm running it through Wine, which is in all likelihood the culprit. However, since I do not have the luxury of running it outside of Wine, I was hoping if I someone could get me some prebaked config files? Just configure your installation as I need it, then archive the files so I can download it from some place (email is fine, I'll send a PM),
Generally I need all settings maxed, but I'll quickly go over the important stuff anyway. Difficulty: Core Rules. Then I need all graphics settings maxed. Use 3D hardware acceleration. All three sliders to Maximum PC (600 Mhz). Footstep sounds & attack sounds ON. Critical hit screen shake ON. Translucent shadows ON. All 'learn spell' info ON. Enable brightening, high & mid level. Gamespy disabled, of course. No automatic speed adjustment. Unsupported resolution: 1280x960! Fullscreen, 32 bit. 3D animations ON, 3d acceleration On.
I'm not exactly sure which files are involved. I'm sorry. I'm guessing at least all the .ini files.
