REALLY hoping someone here can help me....this is just too frustrating
Ok....should have followed the old adage of "If it ain't broke don't fix it" As would not have the issue I'm having if I did.
I have original cds of the baldur's gate game with the Tales of the Sword Coast....when first decided to replay the game several months ago it installed perfectly fine and I played it a bit.
Then the other day I had the "BRILLIANT" idea of installing tutu and some npc voice mods. Because the guide for THAT installation said that the game SHOULDN'T be installed in the program files I decided to uninstall and reinstall the game.
Much to my dismay the game now would NOT install now. Following some info I found online I went and installed it using safe mode....that worked....BUT now I can't get it to play. It does the same thing as when tried to install it the second time. Loads up the screen and then when I click play....nothing
Sooo.....back to the internet following various solutions to run the game in Windows 7 each time failing. Tried running the game in compatibility mode for windows 95 & again for windows 98. Did the troubleshoot for compatibility which said to run it in windows xp service pack 2....still nothing.
Even downloaded and ran Open AL.
Probably did more but am now soooo tired after playing with soo many things I can't even recall at the moment all I did.
I don't understand what happened. I was literally IN the game and playing it just MOMENTS before I decided to uninstall it, so it can't be anything that was added or changed with the computer itself. As odd as it sounds it HAD to be the uninstall and reinstall itself that did something, though I have no idea WHAT.
Any other suggestions? I birefly thought about buying the enhanced version...BUT....
1) Already have a copy of the original game
2) Did something like that once before (Archon Classic) buying a version of a game on steam already had, just because my controllers weren't working....only to find they STILL didn't work and I now paid more money for a game already had.
Sooo....am hoping someone here can help me out....or point me to someone/somewhere I can go to find some help.
