Are there any hacks or patches to allow me to pause Baldur's Gate 1
while on the inventory screen in single player mode like it does in
multiplayer? Or alternately, is there any way to get rid of the chat
window that takes up space when you initiate a dialog in multiplayer mode?

SOrry if this has been asked before, I did a quick search on Google and
google groups, but didn't find any answers.

The answer is 'no, but...'

If you have BG2, you can use BGTutu to run BG1 through the BG2 engine.
Doing this also gives you all the sub classes (some of which are
totally broken in BG1 so choose carefully) larger screen, etc, and will
fix your problem.

I think you find it at pocketplane.net

Which kits (subclasses) are "totally broken" in BG1??

Generally the ones that were designed with the starting level of BG2 in
mind.

On the "broken as in weak" side, the kensai comes to mind. "I can't
wear any armor, gauntlets, or bracers, or use missile weapons, and my
combat bonuses will be negligible for as long as I'm at BG1 levels, but
one day I'll have much better combat bonuses!" Though the monk is not a
kit, it's also severely disadvantaged at BG1 levels.

On the "broken as in strong" side, the shapeshifter. "I can't wear
armor, and when I reach seventh level I won't have normal druidic
shapeshifting abilities, but right from level 1 I can turn into a
monster powerful enough to shred entire groups of starting adventurers."
The totemic druid is even worse--"Wow, my spirit animals are invincible!"

I'd say it's the BG2 versions of these that are broken -- you can play
with the big advantages without having to drag yourself through those
vulnerable lower levels that are supposed to balance it all...
