||Build 5732||GSdx32-AVX r5732||
||FPS 30-50. With build 5732, Baldur's Gate is playing videos with a software renderer well. You can go in-game and play but sometimes freezes to the point that causes a PCSX2 apphang. Heavy graphic glitches with black blocks flickering around.||Xeo|
||1.1.0 r5517||GSdx 5464 SSE41||
||Status goes from in-game to playable. Runs at a decent speed. You must use a GSdx software renderer and the 4GB patch must be used or game will crash.|
||Can confirm that it works, however experiencing some slowdowns in certain areas where the framerate randomly drops down to 15 - 25 before jumping back up to 60FPS. What causes this appears to be the flames effects in the game (wherever you find torches, fireplaces).|

||Played for one hour. Runs at full speed in the OpenGL hardware renderer (2x native IR) with the new "Fast Texture Invalidation" hardware hack enabled (average GS load is 50-70%). Occasional frame rate jitter that is largely eliminated by using native IR.||Flang|
- Original names: バルダーズゲート・ダークアライアンス (SLPS-25140) & (SLPS-25139) & (SLPS-25291)
- Status: Active
- Type: Minor
- Description: Pre-rendered videos (such as the opening logos) are corrupted in hardware mode (PCSX2 1.5.0-20160720115610).
- Workaround: You can try enabling manual game fixes in the emulation settings, and check "Switch to GSdx software rendering when an FMV plays." However, PCSX2 seems to have trouble detecting when an FMV has stopped playing, so it will likely stay in software mode even during gameplay.
