Hi folks,

I'm new to the whole GemRB thing and thought I'd give it a whirl. I was able to get the Windows version to load up IWD2 just fine, but I keep running into trouble with the Android version on my Samsung Galaxy Tab S3. At first I was having issues with the pathing but I seem to have figured most of that out. Now, however, it just loads a black screen and doesn't do anything from there. I checked out the GemRB.log file (see below) it generated after letting the app try to run for several minutes, but it cuts off in the middle of a line and I'm not sure what I'm doing wrong. Any help would be appreciated!

Here is the GemRB.cfg file:

And here is the GemRB.log file:

It just cuts off at that last line without finishing it. I'm totally new to GemRB/all of this in general so it's probably something really simple that I'm just missing, but any help would be appreciated. If I can't get it to work I won't be too disappointed since it runs fine on Windows, but I was hoping to get this to work to complete my Infinity Engine collection on my tablet. Thanks again!

Did you install the widescreen mod? IWD2 doesn't support so high resolutions.

I installed it using option 2 for GemRB and made sure that the resolution inputted into the WeiDu installer and the .cfg file matched the resolution of my tablet. Should I do a fresh install without the widescreen mod?

not if you want higher resolutions. Maybe it's too big for the mod itself, but the fact that the log just cuts out in the middle of an error is very unhelpful.

 

we support scaling, but the apk is forcing fullscreen mode, since that's both the standard and you'd have no way to resize the window.

Okay, I tried a fresh install of everything - GemRB, and IWD2 (which is the GOG version if that matters). The new log file still cuts off, but it shows more of an actual error this time.

So yeah, not sure what to do from here. I do have this working on Windows, though, so if I can't get it to run on my tablet it won't be the end of the world. Thank you for helping me try to figure this out so far!

That's a core python module. :s Anyway, it's used only for prettying up the starting screen, since iwd2 has a different one if you're playing at night. Open that file and remove that line and then the other mention at line 50 (plus the whole if-block after it).

Running into the same problem somehow. Even though I edit the file, save it, close it, then re-open it to make sure the changes stuck, whenever I launch the GemRB app the file reverts to its previous state. Maybe I'm not just meant to run this on my tablet, lol.

Might be respawned from a zip file. But anyway, iwd2 is playable, but not finishable, so I don't think it's worth too much bother yet.

Ah, okay! And yeah, I have it running on my desktop so I'm not too concerned anyways. Thank you so much for your time!
