first go to your BGII folder, then open the baldur.ini file.  under the ?game options? type DisableMovies=1  if not there then try to put under the program options Smiley

I have the same problem, it bugs the hell of me to not be able to watch the movies on my 866 MHz computer with a GeForce 2, but to be able to watch them on my older 233 MHz PentiumII (without sound though, so that's no good either). I even sent an e-mail to Interplay about this, included my configuration and all, and they couldn't/wouldn't give me a better solution than to turn the movies off. Is there some sort of program out there that lets you convert the game movies in to MPEG or some other more mainstream movie format?

Azael:  How have you played BG2 on a PII 233 and retained your sanity?  I have a PIII 500 MHz and I can either choose between pathetic graphics settings or pathetic frame rates.

Make his fight on the hill in the early day
Constant chill deep inside
Shouting gun, on they run through the endless grey
On they fight, for they are right, yes, but who's to say?
For a hill men would kill, why? They do not know
Suffered wounds test their their pride
Men of five, still alive through the raging glow
Gone insane from the pain that they surely know

For whom the bell tolls

Hehe I've done worse, p233mmx (socket 7!) chip for bg2 and throne.

It's not all that bad really, alot of the system's drag is from the graphical options.

hmm thats strange. i play bg2 tob on a k6-2 350 processor with a geforce 2. i run high end graphics with no problems. of course theres some slow down but its very little and rare. but even the high end computers have that problem. black isle said it was just a bug in the game. but  some people have more problems than others with the bug. i hardly have a problem with it at all. and have had very few problems with bg2 period. my friend has had a crap load of problems though.
he can't even do the planar sphere quest cause his computer crashes every time coal is put into furnace. he even has the patch. but on the subject of the movies i have a feeling its your settings on your computer that cause the problems try changing the video cards settings and stuff but besure to note what every thing was on. don't mess with overclocking though unless you want to void the warranty. its probably just a setting on your computer that needs to be changed. btw what programs are running while you play bg2? programs are running if you see symbols and the lower right hand corner. and they can interfear with stuff like bg2 so might want to close them out before playing. any other stuff you can tell me would be helpfull and  i will see i  can find a salution

:)Thanks!!!!!!!!!
But the correct one is to put the "Disable Movies=1" under the
"Program options" in Baldur.ini Cool

I didn't actually play the game on my 233 MHz computer, I just installed the game to see if the movies would play on it.

OK, so I downloaded the program that's supposed to convert the .mve files to .exe files. The problem is that the movies are in .bif format.  Do I need some other program as well?

yes also from TeamBG, get the bifftool with windows front end and follow the directions to unzip or whatever they call it to the biff file that contains the movies.  it will create a folder that has the movie files in them Smiley Cool

OK, I downloaded that program as well and put it in the folder where I have the movies, but when I try to "un-biff" them I get this message:

What am I doing wrong this time?
