Troubleshooting Baldur's Gate 2 multiplayer

view story

http://ubuntuforums.org – So first off, (for people who know the game) I'm not actually trying to play the game "multiplayer" - I just want to be able to make all my own characters. So if someone has a workaround (like I know once you have a mplayer save you can convert it to a single player game to remove some of the inconveniences - but right now I can't even get the original mplayer save) I'm all ears. My specific issue: I've installed the game, I can run single player, but when I try to start a multiplayer game everything goes black (and nothing happens).
