Okies I know this is way old and my comp skills may be way under par. For starters , lets get the leagal ramifications out of the way. I own a 4 in 1 box set PC DVD ... Id like to be able to run a LAN game at home (starting girlfriend out on something simple , dont want to buy another copy incase she's not that interested) I can however run the game on 2 comps by simply pulling the disk out after starting the game. But im worried about dmg with this practice. I had a previous copy of baldurs gate 2 that went bye bye through damage. So if stateing this you all are inclinded not to help based on the site rules, I understand. Anyways ... Ive downloaded a few supposed CD cracks for the game (infinity cracker was one) And the last one haveing the version 1.1.4315 I thought would work. The patch said if I installed "TOTSC" I would be patched to this version. The crack instructions said to put the exe in the baldursgate directory , and update the ini file. Then install the patch. And launch from the exe that the crack archive gave me. I guess where Im haveing problems is whats this "update the ini file all about ?" And I didnt install a patch because I assumed I didnt need it from what the patch information told me. Plus I have a readme file in the baldurs gate that says version 1.1.435 By the way Both systems are running XP SP3 and have DVD rom drives. And I did full installs from Baldurs Gate disk and TOTSC disk. Im not nessacarrily interested in being able to run the expanded content at this time , just want to run the beginning game. If TUT for BG2 would solve my problem , I'd be willing to do that. But then again it might prove more of a headache. Thanx for any advice info.
