1. Launch the game from Steam
2. Windows error sound plays but no error shows up
Crash dump files
Filename: crash - BG2EE Error dmp files.rar (3.9 MB)
Game won't launch from the PC, however it does open if launched while connected remotely with a tablet.
The game launching properly from the computer and playing fine... or at least some error with info.
What I have tried:
-Checked the task manager and the game shows as running but it never starts.
-If I try to start it again it shows it is already running.
-If I end the task and retry I get the same problem
-Checked for video card updates and the computer was already running the latest version.
-Tried running the game on different compatibility modes, as administrator, screen resolution, disabled display scaling...
-Verified game integrity from Steam.
-Installed OpenAL from game installation files.
-DEP exception added.
-Probably some more stuff I don't recall right now.
The weird part: I was playing with my tablet and I connected remotely to the PC and tried to launch the game just for the heck of it, to my surprise the game actually opened. I ended the remote session and went to check the PC and the game was still running and didn't crash, so I tried to play with some of the in-game settings and tried to run it windowed, and I still get the same issue from the PC... it still opens if I launch it from the tablet's remote connection.
Some PC Specs
-Toshiba Satellite U300 laptop (yeah I know its REALLY old)
-OS: Windows 8.1 Pro
-Dual core 1.73 GHz
-200 GB HDD partitioned in two (first one for the OS, second one for docs and games)
-Intel GMA 965 series
Note: The computer came originally with Windows Vista, there are no driver updates from the manufacturer, I downloaded the latest supported version of drivers/software manually from each component's site (Intel, Realtech, etc). Every other game I use work perfectly (including similar games as Icewind Dale EE and BG1). I think this might be something related to the resolution settings as the game runs with no error when I am connected remotely with the tablet, I remember I fixed a game editing some of the resolution settings within the program installation files but I don't know if this is possible (or even necessary in this case) with this game.
Thanks in advanced for any help
BTW, I am copying this from what I submitted on the steamcommunity site as I haven't received a reply yet... I still need to add the game version (I'm at work and can't check it from here), let me know if anything else is missing. Sorry for being spammy!
