Hey there,


i just bought BG1 the original Saga from GOG for my mac and tried to install the widescreen mod to it. the installation over wineskin into the game directory worked fine and i typed in my xy coordinates which are 1440x900. 


the game starts but it appears only as a small window in my left upper corner of the screen, while the rest of the screen is black.



any idea what could be the problem ? 




thanks for any help

Well, the GUI is not centered, and the menues are set to the Top left corner, this is to be expected in the menu screens, the main game interface suffers a little bit of the same, but it's somewhat better.
The real fix is to install the Widescreen mod in one of the 4 resolutions in the following link, the best for yours is to use the 1280x800, and use the BG1 GUI mod on top of that. I have no idea if it works on Wineskin though, but you should try it..

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.

ha thanks. i actually also just figured out that the game worked fine all of the time i just never went that far because the intro and menu was in the corner. yes i will try the GUI mod on top of it.


thanks anyways
