[HELP NEEDED] Game Crash
Hey guys, so I just bought this game after playing it for a while at my friend's house. Only thing is, that once I finally got the game I couldn't play it :\. I can get to the screen where you choose between the tutorial and baldur's gate. My mouse moves around fine on this page and I can click buttons(I've only tried to click on baldur's gate) but on the screen is big white text. It's complete gibberish like "AAAAOOOEEIEIOOOO". I can tell something is wrong here but it let's me continue into baldur's gate. Once in, I can mess around on the main menu, change options, etc. some screens have the glitchy white text over random parts of the screen; some don't.

But, when I click on single player the game crashes immediately. I don't get an error message or anything. Any help would be awesome and I'd love you forever!

Same problems here.
Newly downloaded game, launched on an old DELL XPS laptop with Nvidia 7900 GS on-board and a c2d 2.0 GHz on Windows 7 64bit.
Don't know it the system specs and software installed are relevant at all.
This game needs some serious bug fixing, especially for older HW.

*as suggested around the place, I've disabled the in-game Steam overlay. It did not help.

those threads are for a large white box. I Do Not have a large white box. I have the full menu with large white text over top of it.

did it look like this :

Was there an error code like this : Application load eror P:0000065432.... research seems to point at a STEAM error.

if so i beleive it's actually a steam error. try one of 2 things if you wish to. uninstall steam client and reinstall it. AND\OR try running Steam itself under Windows xp compatability mode.
