Hi guys!

First of all I'd like to say that I really like the BGT mod, exactly what I was looking for!

I'm using it on a german version of Baldurs Gate, I didn't find any indications that this could cause problems. I use Windows 7 32 bit and did the BGT installation according to the instructions, using clean, updated versions of BG I and II and expansions.

In the game, I get two types of crashes:

When I right-click on certain items, e.g. normal arrows or certain staffs, I get a crash with the message "Assertion failed in ChVidImage3d.cpp at line numer 629, programmer says: CVidcell larger than fx"

When I try to equip certain items, especially weapons (the two-handed sword), the game hangs and returns back to windows, but without any message. This is extremely annoying since I specialized my warrior for two-handed swords :)

Does anyone know how to fix this? I would be extremely glad!

Thanks for your help!

Are you using one of the official-but-unsupported resolutions? The higher unsupported resolutions have been known to cause crashes and it's recommend you use the Widescreen mod instead.

thanks for the fast anwser! as it turned out, the crashes were due to the resolution. I'm using now the widescreen mod and everything is working fine.

Thank you very much!

Well, if you are playing a BGII game(as BGT-WeiDu is a BG2 game), then yes.

A friend of mine has the same problem when playing multiplayer with me. Can he use widescreen mod and still play with me (i'm not using). He also has the problem when opening my chars inventory he crashes as well. Would this be fixed by widescreen mod too?

The multiplayer view makes this little harder to answer, as game data is loaded between the computers... I would say that if your friend that has the larger view always starts... thus hosts the game, you shouldn't have problems, but if you do it the other way around, the game might crash on his end if the screen size is too large as it goes over the game areas borders defined by your games install. I don't know why it would crash on the inventory screen though, except if you have a two handed sword or the like...
