Im having problems too, i just bought and installed it, and upon launch the main menu is glitched graphically, theres big white lines and you can bairly see anything, and once you finally navigate into the game its incredibly slow and choppy.

Absolutely unplayable.

I am also having this issue in which it pops up sayin "preparing to launch baldur's gate 2" and then that box vanishes and nothing happens.

I am also having the same issue. The game seems to try to launch, but nothing pops up. My steam handle says I am playing, then after 15 seconds it goes back to just plain "online". I have done the typical trouble shooting that goes with steam, such as verify cache and such, but no luck.

Add the game to your exceptions list and then try to run straight from game.exe

I tried installing it on linux, not the linux steam, but the windows version of steam using wine, and funnily enough it works perfectly.

A windows game that runs better on linux than windows, teehee.

Silly question, but have you tried restarting your computer after installing the game?

same problem

I have the same problem. Thing is it worked the first time I played it. Every time after it freezes on the screen just after you choose the adventure you want to play. I have reinstalled the game 5 time since and it refuses to work. Decided to post here after being blown off by beamdog's customer support.
