Sadly Worthless.
My roomate is running it fine but Nothing I do fixes my problems. Drivers updated. Compatability modes tried. Top half of my screen is white and when I click on the button to play it gors to a blank screen with a white square in it and sound. putting it in 256 color stops the screen from flickering but nothing else I tried made a difference. Sad frustrated upset angry ripped off, thats how I feel. whiped my a$$ on a 20 dollar bill and dont get to play a game I truly loved. BS man, pure BS

Wait for the update I guess.

Try "Alt + Enter" to switch to windowed mode and see if that at least lets you play it that way.

I suggest buying BG1 and BG2 on Good Old Games, and downloading BG1Tutu. Then download some mods for BG2, resolution fixes... and you have a problem-free game that you can run on a laptop with integrated graphics. Because apparently the "developers" of the remake forgot to make sure it works on some of the machines...

i have the same problem but there is a easy fix for this, at least it works for me. Every time i start the game the screen is white, but only the option screen. So by clicking around and starting a game, the screen becomes normal. You just have to memorize where the buttoms are located.
Once you have loaded/started a game you can go back to the options screen and it should work normal

No the button to play the game is visible. when clicked it starts the entro but sound only. the screen is black with a white box off center. And I dont have a laptop I have a high end desktop I lovingly built myself a piece at a time.

then you should be able to start the game by clicking around on the white screen. Once you have started a game it should turn back to normal

(after the intro you can select load game/new game/a few other things). You just have to hit the character creation buttom. That is at least how it works for me and i have the white screen every time

How did you switch your graphics processor? I'm having trouble finding that option.

Did the yesterday's update help?

Also, the performance seems to vary wildly from system to system, I'm 34 hours in and haven't encountered a single bug- lucky me, I guess! :D

Mumm-Ra believe me I was even more angry than you because I love this game.
But there are a lot of helpful hints on BG:EE game forum and everyone there is very kind and helpful. Hope all the guys suggestions help. My fixes had to do with security credentials and manually run oalinst.exe inside "Redist" folder as administrator and make sure it installs, i think at that moment i got rid of that white screen but i think that is far from your case.

[quote=dythbeca;864958451272776730 right click, you can just run it using the intergrated one to check it fixes the issue for you as it did me, on that same menu you can change the detault graphics processor for the programme.

Same issue here except it's a black box instead of white. I have it on steam community pictures.

I have tried everything suggested to me exept what andrew_bear said abbout integrated graphics. I dont know what he is talking about unless he is talking about like mobo integrated graphics or something and I dont have any, only my GPU.
