-You must enter the correct Game Path for GemRB to locate your game data and run the game.
-Once you have entered the Game Path location, save the changes by touching the save arrow in the upper left corner and select Yes.
-The follow game paths are meant to be used with the GOG versions of Baldur’s Gate, Baldur’s Gate2, Planescape:Torment, IceWindale, or Icewindale 2.
- My game paths assume the data will kept in a folders titled with the games name (bg1, bg2..ect)
-You can create multiple folders and switch between games by modifying the game paths or folder names.


Working Game Paths:

Baldurs’s Gate 1

CD3=./
CD4=./
CD5=./

10) Install your selected game onto your computer. All these game are available for digital download and purchase from the Good Old Game Store (GOG.com)
http://www.gog.com/catalogue

If you Install the GOG versions of Baldur’s Gate, Baldur’s Gate2, Planescape: Torment, IceWindale, Icewindale 2, then you can use the follow GamePath configurations.

C:\Program Files (x86)\GOG.com\Baldurs Gate II (GOG path default)
C:\Program Files (x86)\Black Isle\Baldurs Gate II (CD path default)

Saved Games:
-Windows 7/8 users who want to keep their saved games will need to create a new folder called “save”.
-You have to enable hidden files in folder options to see find the saves or just type the path directly in Explorer. Open the file and copy and paste your saved games into the new save folder.
C:\Users\<Your name Here!>\AppData\Local\VirtualStore\Program Files (x86)\GOG.com\Baldurs Gate

11) You will need to download and install Tweak & Fix packs for your chosen game from gibberlings3.net Tweak & Fix Pack Downloads:

-Fix packs will patch many issues that would otherwise make the game unplayable on Android.
-If you experience crashing when traps are sprung in Bg2, then you don’t have the fix pack installed.
-Tweak packs will modify and improve the game play for your Android device.
-One tweak will allow you to stack inventory items so you can carry more and micromanage less.
-The infinity engine modding community updates the Tweak & Fix packs regularly so check back here for updates.
-Download the Tweak & Fix packs for the game and OS (Windows, OS X, Linux) you have installed.
-Install the Tweak & Fix packs by running the .exe and directing it to the location where you installed the game.
-Be sure to check to double check that the correct location for the patches is used.
-By default the files will be installed in the CD version of the games directory and not the GOG directory.

C:\Program Files (x86)\Black Isle\Baldurs Gate II (CD path default)
C:\Program Files (x86)\GOG.com\Baldurs Gate II (GOG path default)

Optional Resolution Patch:
- You can increase the games resolution to better take advantage of your devices screen size.
-Before running this patch you will need to know what resolution your device supports. You can Google --Search the name of your device and “resolution” to find out.
-The default game resolution will be 640x480.
-Download and install the Patch, be sure to check that the install directory is correct.


C:\Program Files (x86)\GOG.com\Baldurs Gate II (GOG path default)
C:\Program Files (x86)\Black Isle\Baldurs Gate II (CD path default)

-You will see the follow questions:
Install Component [Widescreen Mod]?
[R]e-install, [N]o Change, ninstall, [Q]uit or choose one:
1] for the original Infinity Engine (CHOOSE THIS!) (Don’t Choose this)
2] for GemRB(Choose This)
-Choose number 2 and press enter.
-Number 1 is for modding the resolution to play the games on your PC.

-Next you will enter your resolution as X Y coordinates.
-My HP TouchPad has a resolution of 1024(X) x 768(Y)

-Enter your X coordinate. It should be a number, >= 640.
-This is your default X resolution 640, enter your device's screen width=X

-Enter your Y coordinate. It should be a number, >= 480.
-This is your default Y resolution 480, enter your device's screen height=Y
Are you sure? Y/N
-choose y and press enter
-The patch will now mod the game files and exit.

12) Open to the folder where you installed the game data plus Tweak& fix packs.
-It is recommended* to Delete the files that end in .exe, these are not needed.
-I would recommend backing them up in another folder.
-Note* even if you fail to remove these the games still seems to run fine.
-Rename the folder that contains your game data.
-This Must be the same as your GamePath name. GamePath=./bg2/
-For this Example I used Baludr’s Gate 2 as the folder name (bg2)
-You can create several different game folders and switch between games by changing the folder path or names.
-You could use any of these Examples:
-bg1 Baldur's Gate
-bg2 Baldur's Gate 2
-iwd IceWind Dale
-how IceWind Dale
-iwd2 IceWind Dale 2
-pst Planescape Torment

13) Transfer the Game Data folder to your Android device with the USB cable.
-Copy the folder to the location you installed GemRB, /app-data/net.sourceforge.gemrb/
-Note the Game files are very large and can take up to 2.5 GB of storage space per game.
-Once the Game Data is on your Android device run The GemRB app to play the Game.

Works Great but try the Beta Build

This is one of the best game ! :victory:

Anyone tried this method yet?
Looks complicated:eek:

I should note that you will want to get the beta version from the very bottom of the instructions. There are several game engine updates included and multi-touch support. If you experience crashing still when open traps, then you must get this update.

-Enable 'Unknown Sources': In order to install an .apk file from your devices sdcard or internal memory, you first need to enable 'Unknown Sources' from settings/security.
-If you are using Android 4.0+, Ice Cream Sandwich and above, go to Settings/Security and enable 'Unknown Sources'.
-For Android 2.3 and below, go to Settings/Application/enable the 'Unknown Sources'.
-Use the link below to install the Free ES File Explorer File Manager.
-Download the Beta Engine .apk directly to your device Or Download it to a PC/Mac and then transfer it over with the USB cable.
-Install the files download directly to your device by clicking on the notifications.

BG1 on ASUS TF-101

I've followed your instructions and the engine just seems to crash when I launch it, much like the initial launch before the BG1 data is copied. I've installed the GOG version, the tweak/fix pack from Gib3, and installed the widescreen patch as well. I tried to install the updated .72 and .8 beta versions but if it's installed over the Play Store version it won't install at all. Does it matter what version of Android I'm using? I'm on 4.2.2 if it makes and difference.

Just wanted to say, not only did your YouTube guide get bg2 running on my kindle hd, but the dark tower's ending made it my favorite series of all time

And was that a picture of the Master on your YouTube acct? Cuz if so, you're definitely the Man x10

Thanks for the sick tutorials

problem with mouse

Thanks for your videos. I got everything running but it says that it is detecting a bluetooth mouse when there isn't one and now my pointer is stuck in the top left corner! Is there any way to fix this?

Thank you

Thank you for the guide. I followed instruction, but for some reason it did not work. On startup, it crashed. I was unable to get to the BGII screen.

Is it because I have the ToB expansion as well? I purchased the extended edition on GoG.com.

Thanks!

(I'm trying Planescape: Torment right now)

Just kidding, I figured it out. I had to put it all in a folder called bg2.

Anyone figured out a way of inputting a character name at the creation point of the game without a physical keyboard?

Never mind, found the faint icon at top left ...:silly:

baldurs gate crashing

Hi, firstly thanks for the guide and the apps that make this possible. Its amazing to have baldurs gate running on android (I'm using a nexus 7 2013). Baldurs gate was running perfectly but I've run into a few occasions where the game crashes during side quests. I can avoid these certain 'crash points' but I'm missing out on parts of the game which isn't ideal. I downloaded a logcat app to capture what's going on, I have no programming knowledge at all so it means nothing to me but I'm hoping someone can help me out. I purchased the game from GOG games with the expansion pack, downloaded and installed as the guide instructs, I didn't install the tweaks pack as I'm trying to keep the game original so whether this is why I'm running into problems I'm not sure. That's the only deviation I took from the guide but I followed everything else to the letter. The crashing occurs on a few quests, for example when starting a particular quest - a few dialogue options then a battle should begin but gemrb crashes, this is the fatal line from the logcat (I can post the whole logcat if required)

04-12 21:48:53.038 29543 29570 F Libc : Fatal Signal 11: (SIGSEGV) at 0x000010b0 (code=1), thread 29570 (GLThread)

And on another quest but on completion an NPC should die and drop an item

04-12 21:53:36.393 31004 31020 F Libc : Fatal Signal 11: (SIGSEGV) at 0x000010b0 (code=1), thread 31020 (GLThread)

I can see theres a similarity in the two logcats and hopefully there's a solution out there. I'd appreciate any help or knowledge regarding the above, thanks if you took the time to read this through.

Thank you, new updates available

Many thanks for this - Baldur's Gate is one of my favourite games, and the chance to play it on the Touchpad is very welcome

Hey thanks, don't forget to checkout some of the newer builds of this app. Unfortunately the app hasn't been updated in a longtime but you can manually install updated versions. There is a link to version 7.2 in the thread but there is likely newer versions that I haven't had time to test yet. If you give those versions a go please let me know how it worked out for you and if my info needs updating. I just noticed that links to several pictures are down and I will fix those now.

Cheers

Dosbox Turbo for Fallout

I have tested today Planescape Torment on the latest 0.8.0 version and I can confirm that now we have multi touch. It can be used to scroll the map.
I am also waiting for ExaGear RPG in order to play Fallout and Arcanum on touchscreen.

You can play fallout 1 and 2 already with a reasonably fast android device. Just checkout my Dosbox Turbo thread below:cowboy:

    -Number 1 is for modding the resolution to play the games on your PC.

    -Next you will enter your resolution as X Y coordinates.
    -My HP TouchPad has a resolution of 1024(X) x 768(Y)

    -Enter your X coordinate. It should be a number, >= 640.
    -This is your default X resolution 640, enter your device's screen width=X

    -Enter your Y coordinate. It should be a number, >= 480.
    -This is your default Y resolution 480, enter your device's screen height=Y
    Are you sure? Y/N
    -choose y and press enter
    -The patch will now mod the game files and exit.

    12) Open to the folder where you installed the game data plus Tweak& fix packs.
    -It is recommended* to Delete the files that end in .exe, these are not needed.
    -I would recommend backing them up in another folder.
    -Note* even if you fail to remove these the games still seems to run fine.
    -Rename the folder that contains your game data.
    -This Must be the same as your GamePath name. GamePath=./bg2/
    -For this Example I used Baludr’s Gate 2 as the folder name (bg2)
    -You can create several different game folders and switch between games by changing the folder path or names.
    -You could use any of these Examples:
    -bg1 Baldur's Gate
    -bg2 Baldur's Gate 2
    -iwd IceWind Dale
    -how IceWind Dale
    -iwd2 IceWind Dale 2
    -pst Planescape Torment

    13) Transfer the Game Data folder to your Android device with the USB cable.
    -Copy the folder to the location you installed GemRB, /app-data/net.sourceforge.gemrb/
    -Note the Game files are very large and can take up to 2.5 GB of storage space per game.
    -Once the Game Data is on your Android device run The GemRB app to play the Game.
