have you updated your drivers to the latest?

Graphics cards arnt usualy a problem unless they are on the very low end and a 9800 is around the same age as mine if not newer. I would check your drivers AND use an empty override folder when logging on. its uncommon but overrides can conflict with features in this game so its a good place to start

If using windows with Nvidia or similar graphics cards, Windows XP, Vista, 7 and Direct X's install dose something nasty... It replaces the manufacter's drivers with Microsoft ones...

The Microsoft ones are SHIT and tend to mess things up a lot... especially games that get the most out of a graphics card.

Make sure Direct X is installed completely, (Windows 7 and later tend to preinstall only partial direct X installation, so worth checking this first)

Download the right driver from Nvidia's website and install that.

This should fix it Very Happy

(Still got NWN running fine on nVidia 6200)

may want to look to see if you have the option for... enable shiny water and the animated texture effects in the advanced video options... I know was crashing and having other trouble until I turned some of those off... I turned all the check boxes off except for the visual effects high being enabled...

Friend Muf Dvr,
Be sure to get the DirectX9c SDK (Software Developers Kit) - it is the FULL version of DirectX9c and btw, do install it EVEN if you have a DirectX with a higher number. NWN totally relies on this and some of its pieces were omitted in later versions of DirectX ... when your rig gets to a place where the vid card needs that part, bam, down goes NWN.

You can get this directly from microsoft.com, use their site search and you should be good to go.

Keep me posted please on your progress.

Be well. Game on.
GM_ODA

P.S. Also, be sure you are running NWN in XP compatibility mode SP2 and in Administrator Mode.

Turn off Shiny Water in your options for NWN. Seriously, try it. Also try playing with your sound settings. All this sounds weird, but sometimes it works. Especially Shiny Water. It's evil. Trust me. EVIL.

Evil.


Evil Evil Evil Evil.

EVIL!!!

I cannot express my feelings on Shiny Water in any other way.

I am DM Drachen and I support this message. The DM Drachen foundation is not in any way, shape, or form responsible for injury when having Shiny Water checked. It fully and completely supports the destruction and complete obliteration of Shiny Water. User discretion is advised.
