Additional Comments

  • It is a Polish version. from Extra Klasyka series. There is no newer patch anywhere online.
  • I was mainly trying to do something with performance. There is quite big boost with wine 3.20 -> 4.0-rc7.
  • There is NO NEED to install any of winetricks dx9-related libraries - they does not change performance (checked with showfps in debugmode).
  • There is SMALL performance advantage removing d3dx9d_28.dll from home directory of NWN2.
  • My Intel graphics card is too weak to give good performance with this game, so it may be that my observations are not correct.

HowTo / Notes

HOWTO
  •  Use of dll overrides "devenum.dll" and "dxdiagn.dll" may be necessary for the game to run.
  •  Requires using winetricks to install directx9 and vcrun2005.
  •  The following registry key changes are recommended (Use the command "wine regedit" and then add them as strings to the appropriate directory):

[HKEY_CURRENT_USER\Software\Wine\Direct3D]
OffscreenRenderingMode = fbo
UseGLSL = enabled
VideoMemorySize = 256

You may also put in whatever amount of memory your video card uses instead of 256.

  • To get the autoupdater to run, right click anywhere on the autoupdate window (except the status text part), and then click "dedicated internet connection". It should now work.
  • If you are unable to change resolution while using fullscreen mode, emulating a virtual desktop may be useful for getting the game to allow other resolutions.
