Greetings everyone! I just tried to install the Widescreen Mod in my Windows XP system for use with Baldur's Gate 1 + Tales of the Sword Coast (version 1.3.5508). However, installation failed and, as instructed, I'm posting the SETUP-WIDESCREEN.DEBUG error log here and asking for assistance:

You need to install the latest patch (which would be Trials of the Luremaster if you're on Heart of Winter) and make sure you aren't installing the mod twice (which includes attempting to install it on EasyTutu or a cloned install when it is already installed on your main install).

Will uninstalling and reinstalling the whole game + expansion help?
Should I apply patches 1.3.5512 and/or 5521?
Any help will be appreciated! Thanks for reading!

Yes, you should apply patch 5512.
 

You need to install the latest patch (which would be Trials of the Luremaster if you're on Heart of Winter) and make sure you aren't installing the mod twice (which includes attempting to install it on EasyTutu or a cloned install when it is already installed on your main install).

Or you can apply the 5521 patch, or have that natively in game already, but then you should also extract the international 5521's fix/(it's name is "Baldur's Gate: Tales of the Sword Coast DirectX 8 Bug Patch", the Intl -version), that's available here.

I will also suggest that you install the Widescreen mod in one of these 4 resolution options, so you can install the BG1GUI mod on top of that, so you will have finally a centered GUI and proper mouse scrolling in game.

The resolution options are in the link, it's these:

 

c/ 1024x600 - for netbook screens
d/ 1024x768 - for standard monitors 4:3 (CRT)
e/ 1280x768 - for panoramic monitors LCD 16:9
f/ 1280x800 - for panoramic monitors LCD 16:10

Welcome to the sanity, you are free to search for the limit, it's out there, we drew it in the sand.
Here's how to install all the ... mods you ever really could want to Infinity Engine games. I removed the stable word from there as Roxanne began to add BS mods that are likely to break compatibility from the BWS.

Thank you both for the advice and the useful links. I patched my game to version 1.3.5512 and now the Widescreen Mod is working. One strange thing I noticed, though, was that some sprites that were supposed to be transparent began showing large black squares behind them. Could this possibly be a bug in the Mod?

No, it's not the mod, it will happen even without it in the original game, so to get rid of it, you need to edit the game settings via the baldur.ini file that's in your game folder by hand with Notepad. It has to do with the color settings, if you set it to 32 bit one, the lower side of the partially visible squares have wrong visibility zone.

Example parsed from two spots:

Truthfully, I forgot how to remove that, except set the colors to 16. :devlook: Either in game or in the .ini file.
