I spent ages trying to get this to work the first time, so perhaps this will save someone some pain.

On each computer:
1. Buy BG2 from gog.com, download, and install
2. Set compatibility mode on BGMain to Windows XP (Service Pack 3)
3. Run the game and switch to windows mode (alt-enter)
4. Sign up for game ranger: www.gameranger.com

On the host computer:
5. Host a BG2 game on game ranger
6. Wait for friend(s) to join the game on game ranger
7. Assign characters and start the game
8. Go back to full-screen mode (alt-enter)
9. Winning!

Note: If my power came unplugged while playing, it would lock up the game. As always, save often!

You may not need game ranger unless both computers are in the same network, but it made hosting a multiplayer game so easy that I definitely recommend it!
