What works

Almost everything works

this includes most of the modules that come with it, tho I haven't had time to test them all... yet


the aurora toolset

What does not

Some graphics, mostly noticeable in the temple of Tyr where the shadows, portals and corpses will blink like crazy and they will be seen through any wall (applies to every entity in the area, same goes for the peninsula district (assorted areas, not the whole district). same goes for other assorted areas in the game.

The framerate is horrible in some areas (it took me 35 minutes to get the menu up when I wanted to save, and an additional 10 to use the stone of recall), this only applies (as far as I have tested) to parts of the back room in the moonstone mask and in some areas of the peninsula district.
the framerate drop makes it unplayable in those areas, but none of the main plot areas seem to be affected.


What was not tested

the beggars nest, the docks, blacklake district and anything after chapter one.

I haven't tried any of the expansions yet either.

Multiplayer isn't tested either.

Additional Comments

I have to give it bronze because of the major graphics problems and because of the extreme framerate drops in assorted areas

HowTo / Notes

Getting Neverwinter Nights to work on ATI Cards

Multiple users reported that Neverwinter Nights might present problems when running it on a machine with an ATI card.

In order to avoid that, rename the main program file nwmain.exe to something else, like nwmain2.exe. The driver seems to try some optimizations otherwise, which are actually backfiring and causing issues with the game.

HOWTO - Find patches
IGN doesn't host the patches anymore either

Resolution wrong if not in virtual desktop
by YaoMitachi on Thursday February 5th 2015, 0:15
Though I had the game set to run at 1920x1080, it ended up being scaled down with black bars around the game, and everything was fuzzy. If I run the game in a virtual desktop at that size, it works fine. Using an AMD card.
