Curse of Icewind Dale
We’re proud to announce the third free expansion module for Neverwinter, Curse of Icewind Dale. In this third update, coming later this spring, players can enjoy new PvE content and new features that will bring completely different ways to PvP.
We’re very excited about how PvP will be expanding and transforming in Module 3: Curse of Icewind Dale and we know you’ll enjoy all the PvE content in the upcoming expansion as well. We can’t wait to reveal more!
Please note that this content is currently in development and is subject to change.
Installing and launching the game, roaming around for a bit...
I haven't tested the game in depth.
What does not
Nothing, that I tested.
What was not tested
Anything outside the main city. I don't have time to play this game much any more... Just trying to keep appdb updated for it still ;)
And I see I still missed the 10.x series...
Although I do rate it Platinum, some might encounter a few issues, but there are tweaks available for those.
|Operating system||Test date||Wine version||Installs?||Runs?||Used|

Standing where you have downloaded the Arc installer enter this comand: (Alter the prefix and filename as needed)WINEPREFIX=/wineprefixes/Neverwinter wine ArcInstall_v20131010a.exe
Launching Arc When installing Arc, you should have gotten an option for a desktop shortcut, but the manual way of launching Arc would be: (Standing in the folder you installed Arc into. Alter the prefix path as needed)WINEPREFIX=/wineprefixes/Neverwinter wine ArcLauncher.exe
From there you can download and start Neverwinters launcher - Which will update the game and start the actual game.
Windowed mode crashes
Some users have experienced crashes when running in windowed mode. Should that happen for you, try running in full screen mode instead.
Mouse input lagging
If you experience lag when using the mouse, try going to the options panel of the Neverwinter launcher, and add "-enablerawinputsupport 0" in the "Advanced command line" editbox.
Disabling on-demand patching
This is mostly a matter of preference - If you want to force the launcher to update the entire game before you play, head into the options panel of the Neverwinter launcher and check "Disable on-demand patching".
Freezes while on loading screen
There has been problems, with Neverwinter freezing on the loading screen, with a combination of fglrx drivers and wine 1.7 - It isn't quite clear, what exactly triggers that, but downgrading wine, and/or changing fglrx driver versions apparently helps.
