Baldur's Gate workaround?
« on: May 16, 2010, 03:57:20 PM »
I know you had a way to get around the Baldur's Gate CD-requirement workaround, but I can't remember what it was... I'm looking to [re]install BG1, TOSC, BG2, TOB ... and I don't want to deal with all eighty CDs. You wuoldn't happen to remember what it was, would you?

The only thing like that I remember was copying all the files from all 4 CDs to a DVD and playing off that.

I'd bet that you're currently bloated like a water ballon on a hot summer's day.

That analogy doesn't even make sense.  Why would a water balloon be especially bloated on a hot summer's day? For your sake, I hope there wasn't too much logic testing on your LSAT.

So when you say put the files, you mean to extract all 4 ISOs and just dump the files into the root folder of hte CD? Awesome, I'll have to give that a whirl.
