    I tried this, and got as far as the script, but when I got to the point where I needed to define the cdrom path, when I entered the info and pressed enter, it just closed the script.

    Re: HOWTO: Installing Neverwinter Nights Platinum

    Did it give you any sort of error?

    INVALID DEVICE! Please check the device and try again
    That's what it gave me if I entered the wrong device. I have /media/cdrom0 and put in /media/cdrom which gave me the error.

    Could also be that the creator of this script has changed it from the one I have, somehow breaking it.

    I posted it at http://thefnords.org/install-nwn.sh.

    *laughs* I knew I'd manage to screw it up. When I get past step 6, the terminal window closes, and after I insert the DVD, nothing happens other than the contents of the CD being shown in the file browser. the directory /usr/<username>/games/nwn doesn't exist. Does the script create it, or should I do it beforehand?

    edit:

    Nevermind. Reading is fundamental.

    Re: HOWTO: Installing Neverwinter Nights Platinum

    Now the big question is, for everyone who has it working... when are we going to play? My server is currently running the Pool of Radiance module, which is great for 3-6 players. In essence you start out in town and the town council has several jobs that you go do. Pretty good module, based off the old Advanced Dungeons and Dragons one.

    Of course if you have any other suggestions for a module, I'd be glad to serve it up. I was thinking that we could get groups to sign up for a particular game of it, and have the time set up, so that we could play that module weakly or whatever. I could probably have a saved session afterwards and so host several different games at different times.

    What does everyone think of that?

    I just wanted to drop by and say Thanks Leech for the great guide! I havent gotten it working yet because I think my cdrom is dying-a lot of the time it shows only the title of the cd being loaded but no data on it unfortunatly . I also wanted to add that, for the above posters who say the terminal exits with no error, you could try to open up a new terminal, click edit, then current profile, and under the 'title and command' tab, at the very bottom you can set the terminal to stay open when it normally would close, and thus hopefully display an error you can see to solve when you try again.

    EDIT: just in case someone else has the above cd-reading problem, it sometimes works to unmount the cd manually (I have mine setup to auto-eject with the button) and re-enter it.

    Not a problem, though maybe you should save the thanks until it's working Fortunately for you, new DVD/CD-ROMS aren't all that expensive.

    That's really very strange that people are having the terminal actually closing on them. Thanks for the advice for that.
