Hi everyone, I am running on Windows XP 32-bit and after a lot of effort and many many hardships I managed to make the game actually run and also got past the graphics issues after a lot of tampering with the NVidia Control panel (mostly thanks to this forum).
So, the problem. The game starts with any character BUT:
1) Everything I do inside an indoor area has not taken place the next time I'm there e.g. items reappear, NPCs behave like the first time every time, quests such as Firebead's given again, I killed Shank and Carbos like five times each... That happens in every indoor area, outdoors it does not (duh?).
2) Most importantly, there are no saved games. I mean whenever I save, I get the green dialogue box message "save succesful" or "quick save succesful" but the savegame never appears neither on the save nor on the load savegame screen. It does not appear in the Documents Baldur's Gate file either or anywhere else. Obviously you can't play the game without ever saving..
I am literally begging for a solution or two here, if anyone has an idea I'd be really grateful.
