This is the latest GoG version of NWN2 including the original game, and
three expansions: Mask of the Betrayer, Storm of Zehir, and Mysteries of
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.
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
