    NWN Neverwinter Nights thread

    I'd try with critical rebuild patch, the one that's used without expansions if it'd work? At worst you can just not use the stuff added in expansions, I don't believe the OC itself uses any of it.

    NWN Neverwinter Nights: Enhanced Edition - Beamdog's final enhancement - now with new premium modules

    If you really want you can play around with the shaders yourself as they're written in plain text with even some comments. Use nwn explorer to extract the .shd you want from data\base_shaders.bif, make the changes and stick it in override.

    NWN Neverwinter Nights (NWN & NWN2) Modules Thread

    https://nwn.fandom.com/wiki/Paralyze The wiki has pretty good documentation regardings bugs and special quirks of the game, it's not exactly pnp faithful. Btw how'd you test this? To trigger death attack the target's gotta be flat-footed and after getting paralysed it's stilll flat-footed and...

    Little details in RPGs that please you

    My favourite would be connections between the game world and mechanics. For example how companion influence was explained in KOTOR2 or how you learn many of the spells in PS:T. Creative ways of skirting around technical limitations (or unnecessary work) also make me smile and I appreciate when...

    Dragon Age Dragon Age 2 was released ten years ago

    DA2 was the first and probably last game of which I followed the development. It's been years and the BioWare boards are defunct so I may be wrong in some cases, but as I recall a lot of game changes were... misunderstood... by the developers. For example there was kind of an issue with attacks...

    NWN Neverwinter Nights: Enhanced Edition - Beamdog's final enhancement - now with new premium modules

    I feel bad, this must have taken a lot of effort for the hundreds of parts, but the results are questionable at best. The quality ranges from good to prosperous by itself, but the parts system is defenitely not meant to be used with high detail models. Things you overlooked before become...

    Squeenix NieR Replicant ver. 1.22474487139 announced for PC/PS4/XBO

    Took me like 6h for ending B including the DLC. I was under the mistaken impression that you've gotta redo the sidequests and stuff but no, so it ended up being much less annoying. The extra stuff is pretty nice, gives you a new perspective and fills in the parts that sounded kinda weird during...

    Squeenix NieR Replicant ver. 1.22474487139 announced for PC/PS4/XBO

    Still felt like they went overboard, reminded me of that "I was just pretending" meme... Also bad endings everywhere xD . Thinking back some of them did add a sense of the world moving forward and the nature of the problems you're solving changing as you know more of the story. Speaking of...

    Crispy™ Brainstorming an actually good crafting system

    If you strip away the "crafting" sticker you're just describing a standard rpg model. Gaining xp, leveling up, learning/using new abilities, quest rewards,... In that case might as well reverse the roles and have equipment be the main character progression and have levelups just as a restricting...

    NWN Neverwinter Nights (NWN & NWN2) Modules Thread

    I've updated to 1.32 on dev branch, not sure if it makes any difference, since it the same number? The companion thing you have to edit in settings.tml in your documents folder. There's a "player-party-control = false" line under [server]. Btw I don't think they have any kind of comprehensive...

    NWN Neverwinter Nights (NWN & NWN2) Modules Thread

    This is pretty funny. I've tried save/load near a torch-on-wall yellow emitter and it turned white. Doing it again turned it off and on the next save/load it turned red. After that it stayed red.

    NWN Neverwinter Nights (NWN & NWN2) Modules Thread

    I've tried it and what I could figure out is ctrl+click/drag to select party members and then shift+(double)click to make them walk somewhere. Is that it or I just don't know what to do? Never tried DM client in all my years... Anyway just this seems an immense QoL improvement. I might even...

    There should be some crash logs in the documents folder, check there if there's any hints?

    NWN Neverwinter Nights (NWN & NWN2) Modules Thread

    Definitely have a few of every potion in the bag plus extra for henchmen xD . Also those elemental resist necklaces are lifesavers, trust me. Man if this module had a drug/addiction system...

    NWN The Blades of Netheril - unofficial sequel to NWN1 OC from Ossian's Luke Scull - coming September

    Even with all the artists, the good ones are booked months in advance. I guess the issue is having things done legally, otherwise you got thousands of rpg portraits floating around for any and every taste. About the premium module, why do I feel like it has something to do with the...
