I've been playing Baldur's Gate II: Shadows of Amn from GOG.com for the last week.
The original from 2000, not the newer Enhanced Edition.
GOG.com has their own launcher, GOG Galaxy 2.0.
When I start using the launcher it never works.
So I start it directly by opening BGMain.exe.

Sometimes it works right away.
Other times it hangs in the menu and goes into a small 800x600 box on the top left of my screen (not a window as I can't move or close it).
I still hear the music, but other than that it's unresponsive and I have to close it using the task manager.
The weird thing is, let's say I start it the first time and it does that as soon as I come into the main menu.
I start it a second time and it goes well, until I click something in the main menu and go into a sub menu.
Third time, same result.
Fourth time, it works.

It seems completely random Confused | :confused:
I'd contact GOG.com about it, but having to restart a few times isn't worth the trouble.
I still very much wonder how computers can have such erratic behavior though.
