What works

The game runs fine. I played the main game for about 5 or 6 hours with no problem once the game has been properly set up.

As usual, the GoG installer sends an error at the end of the installation but it can be ignored.

What does not

Some 3D effects does not work out of the box, the game hangs if not properly configured.

Workarounds

Had to install DirectX9 and VC Runtime 2005 using winetricks and had to use the registry tweaks as noted in the "how to" section of the AppDB page for NWN2.

Also had to disable the following graphics options :

- soft shadows

- point light shadows

What was not tested

Multiplayer and mod editor

Hardware tested

Graphics:

  • GPU: Nvidia
  • Driver: proprietary

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.
