Baldur's Gate II Keeps crashing!

I just bought BGII from Macplay for my G5 power mac, with Mac OSX. It keeps crashing all the time, every minute or so. Messed with the settings, nothing changed. Any help?

Uninstall anything you dont need is a good start. If, when you have done this, it persists, then reinstall the game. If it still does it, check if all the system requirements match to the RECOMMENDED, NOT MINIMUM. Some games wont actually work on minimum. Plus, some games dont work on some operating systems.

Shadows of Amn crashes randomly when I try to save. I am running Snow Leopard, 2 gigs ram, 3d off. Is there a fix for this crashing?

This happened to me, also. I don't remember which forum it was, but I found a solution. The problem is Spotlight. You need to prevent it from "looking" at the files in the game, as it causes crashes. The path is: System Preferences (under the 'Apple' in the upper left of the screen --> Spotlight (sub-heading of 'Personal') --> in that window, you can toggle between "Search Results/Privacy". Go to "Privacy" and drag the entire BG II folder into the window. This will prevent the crashes upon saving.

How to be a good Battlemage

Obviously there is no battlemage class. What you do is start off as a warrior class, but change the attributes. then level up 2 times as a mage, and then 1 level of warrior. You cant wear the armour, but you can use the weapons!
Hope you enjoy it!!!

Will Macplay's Baldur's Gate 2 run on this computer?

Baldur's Gate is roughly ten years old so it was made to run on hardware that would be a fraction of what you have. If it doesn't play it certainly wouldn't be because of your hardware.

I also found this site with users running it on much older Macs:

After I installed Baldur's Gate II on my MacBook, when I tried to start up the game, I got the error "An Assertion failed in ChDimm.cpp at line number 645 Programmer says: Unable to Open...

I love that game dude, but it's old and sadly depending on the OS you have, it doesn't run. You're probably using Mac OS X, or even Mac OS X Snow Leopard and BG2SoA doesn't run on Mac unless you have bootcamp.

Does Baldur's Gate II install on an intel mac running 10.5.7?

There's currently no reports of BG2 not working on the new updates of OSX

So it "should" work. Providing your mac is above the original system requirements the game suggests.

Error 89

Error 89 is probably something wrong with it actually loading the new map. Theres probably a script error with the transition 'compasses'. I suggest cleaning the disk as well as possible (if you havent already tried), and, if that doesnt work, i think its a good idea to get a new disk.
