What works

- Splash Menu

- Single player campaign

What does not

Skin of our own player is messed up. Likely due to "Creature Environment Mapping" option under Video Settings (as mentioned in this feedback: http://appdb.winehq.org/objectManager.php?sClass=version&iId=13952&iTestingId=72046&bShowAll=true). Proper displaying of the start menu which stays all black when not "refreshing" my i3-wm workspace. The introduction & logos will display, but when the game menu should appear, I have to switch workspace, and come back to the one the game was running on. Then clicking on NWN icon I see in the window to make the game window appear again, fine this time.

Workarounds

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

They can now be found here: http://neverwintervault.org/patches

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.
