Hey, I know this is BG: EE, and the version I'm playing now is the original PC Baldur's Gate. I didn't know where else to post this.
I've been having problems with movies going on loop. This is my second disk, so I know it has nothing to do with the disk itself. I use windows 7, so maybe that's an issue.
I've been trying for weeks to shut off the movies through the baldur.ini file by setting them to "0", but to date, I have seen no evidence that the file actually effects anything. Even when it remembers the changes I make, nothing different ever happens. I've tried setting it to "read only", and I've even reinstalled the game in "my games" instead of "Program files x86". Still no proof that the file does anything. Is there some other way to shut off the movies so I can play? Is there anyway to find and delete individual movie files?
edit: I've tried swapping the .bif movie files for text files of the same name, but I am now getting a blue screen. If I return the correct MOVIECD.bif file to the movies folder, it works again. Obviously the game is not fooled. Why?
