Right so due to my lack of internet at the new house I moved into I resorted in playing one my older games and recently finished it. As you might expect that game is Baldur's Gate 2.

Amazing game.

Yet even though I've finished it I feel like playing it again but with a different class this time, but I was also hoping to play with other people (it's so much more fun when you play with friends).

Right so this is what I am putting forward just to see what it get's me. I'm looking for 5 other players (max - since a party can only hold 6) to play through the game with me.

I only ask that you actually enjoy this sort of game to play it all the way through with other people. Those of you have played this game or similar games are more than welcome, and even new people are fine since it's all about the exploring.

Anyway for now, that's all I have to say since I just want to see if people are interested.

One more note, be sure to have access to either skype or ventrilo as it's easier to play whilst communicating this way :D

P.S. For those of you who don't have the game, you can buy it for fairly cheap nowdays anyway or just download it <_<

P.S.S Timezones aren't such a bother for me either since I'm at uni and playing at odd hours of the day is what students should be doing (if they are not out drinking!)

ahh this sounds like agreat idea! but sadly I can't take part :(
For some reason BG2 does not like my computer at present and it screenflickrs like mad - I should really see to sorting it out at some point but havn't had the time (the other downside). Hope you can get a group together - for any reading this and wondering BG2 seriously is a fantastic RP game and its well worth getting (its only like £/$5 in shops with BG1 and expansions)

I doubt it will happen any time soon, but you should be able to get that problem sorted out in time. It doesn't sound like a major problem.

I googled your problem and it seems there are few easy fixes. Go have a look for yourself. IS the flickering present all the time or just some of the time?

Anyway I'll leave you to it.

figures those would be the two culprits! It loads for me, but I seriously can't play with the flicker. I'll take a look at all the compatabiltiy modes and tweaking the graphics settings too and see if any of that makes a difference. If not and if there is not netfix then -- well - guess I might have to wait for a computer upgrade to Win7 or for GoG to get (and fix) the game

I run it on Vista. No problems.

I just jacked up all the graphics settings and turned on the 3d mode. It works fine for me. The game is old enough for even my laptop to run it "full spec" lol

Gah damn you people. Just get new copies or fix your minor problems >_<

The game shouldn't be supporting your graphics, your computer should be doing it. Hell with what you got it SHOULD be playing it >_<

I've never encountered a problem such as a game being too old to support :S
