Baldur's Gate II: EE crashes sometimes when I use Alt+Tab to go to a different program. It doesn't always happen, but when it does, it's quite annoying.

Any ideas or tips?

    Hi @RoiC - You could try a couple of things. You didn't mention what OS or game version you are running so I will guess it is the latest game version running on Windows 10.

    1. Change the backend to run as DirectX by editing the baldur.lua, finding the line below and changing it from a 0 to a 1.
    0 = OpenGL, 1=DirectX

    If this doesn't work, then before giving up on it, re-install DirectX 9.0c and give it another go.

    the other is to
    2. Uncheck Full Screen in Options/Graphics. Set the game window to be the size of the screen. I know I have had to do this with other games and have tried it with this game but you then have problems with using the mouse (from memory, you click to use the middle button and drag) to move around the game... good for troubleshooting but painful when playing.
