Well, it is like the graphics are not working properly. On the whole screen everything is very "dimmed," when I start clicking a clickable button such as the + or - when rolling starts for a character the whole screen brightens and it all becomes sharp. If I stop clicking, it just fades again.

I am installing it on my laptop now to see if it has something to do with this computer and or the widescreen.

The game is blurry enough for me to be unable to read certain things. I don't think that this is how it is supposed to be, I remember playing BG2 on this computer, original, and everything looked sharp.

My pc is 5 year-old Dell and there are no slowdowns and graphic anomalies so far, thought I did have to switch all graphic options on my ATI panel to "default" before the flickering went away. Graphics are also crisp and bright when not zoomed in to the max.

I've got the same problem... I think it's because I have an Intel processor. Do you as well?

Edit: Definitely sure that the problem is my Intel. Just noticed the message "Intel integrated graphic chipsets not supported" or something to that effect. I have Intel HD graphics and just realized that means it is an integrated chip set (SHOOT!). I'm running through a heavily modded full saga game a la BigWorld now anyway so its no big,

I just want to support this product with the hope that we can see a Good BG3 in a couple of years. It'd be nice if I could run this at normal speed just for the sake of seeing the new content, though... hopefully intel integrated graphics are supported soon. I can run all the originals with no problem but updated for modern computers it doesn't work? lame.

Made a world of difference for me on two computers.

Edited the Baldur.ini file and changed footsteps to 0:
'Game Options', 'Footsteps', '0',

- ini file is in your documents folder 'Documents/Baldur's Gate - Enhanced Edition/Baldur.ini'

(Found info on forums at baldursgate.com)

video is still real choppy but game is playable.

I have two machines running the game, one has an i5 and the other is an older Intel Wolfsdale, both dual core.

I don't think the processor is the issue, but I could be wrong. Have you tried updating your display drivers?

Turned off footsteps for slight improvement. I've managed to get the game somewhat playable by turning off footsteps and adding to/playing with the baldur.ini file otherwise... but even still I'd rather play the modded originals. Running an i3 with HD Graphics and I'm pretty sure the HD Graphics are problem. From what I've read they have poor OpenGL support even after updating drivers (which I have)
