Baldur's Gate I

Baldur's Gate I

In the Olden Days you were forced to run the game at a relatively low resolution (640 pixels x 480 pixels) when compared to monitors of today.  Who had ever heard of a wide screen monitor in 1998?  Nowadays it is uncommon for a gamer not to have a monitor exceeding 24" able to be driven at 1920 pixels x 1200 pixels, or even 1920 pixels x 1440 pixels depending on the screen aspect of the user's monitor.  Of course, the video card of the system comes into play as well.  The most common resolution to run at would seem to be 1280ppi x 1024ppi as this permits the characters to be of a size for easy viewing while still allowing an expanded view of the various areas.  A higher resolution makes many aspects of the game too small to be viewed and gives the player no discernible advantage.

Fortunately in September of 2007 along came The Bigg to the rescue.  An early member (2004) of The Gibberlings 3 he devised a modification, Wide-Screen Modification, for beta testing which is now in its third major release with a minor update (v3.05).  The modification most of interest to players of the first installment of the game series was made almost immediately after the September release as v.04 beta, in October.

Note: To use the Wide-Screen Modification you must first install all applicable patches to the game.  This note assumes that you have successfully installed both Baldur's Gate I and Baldur's Gate I: Tales of the Sword Coast — a fresh install.  It is recommended that it be a full installation including all the discs being copied as well.

Assuming you have successfully installed Baldur's Gate I and the expansion pack you now need to determine which edition of the game you have.  There are three versions of Tales of the Sword Coast, an American and Canadian version, a United Kingdom version and an International version.  If you have the American / Canadian version the patch file needed can be downloaded here.  For the United Kingdom version the patch can be downloaded here.  Finally, the International version can be downloaded here.

Note: If you just must play the game without having installed Tales of the Sword Coast, and you need the patch for Baldur's Gate I, the American and Canada version can be downloaded here and the International version here.

If you are utilizing a NVidia graphics card Series 8 video card, and perhaps some others, and you plan on using the Wide Screen Modification, a recommendation would be that you read a fine posting over at Spellhold Studios.  It could save you a lot of time and frustration.
