    How do I change the resolution? It tries to resize my screen and I get mode not supported...is it in the config.ini?

    It is in nwn.ini. It is line 8 and 9.

    Re: HOWTO: Installing Neverwinter Nights Platinum

    I'm having problems with this method. at the end of install process i get the following message:
    "Testing for ImageMagick convert
    convert not found!
    convert is a part of the Image Magick tools, used here to make the nwn.iso a Linux friendly nwn.xps
    Skipping image conversion"

    i get it with both the diamond edition(when it works) and the platinum edition. when i load neverwinter nights, i just get prompted for my keys, and it never gets any farther. it just keeps prompting for the keys over and over again. any suggestions?

    Have you tried installing Imagemagick? I always thought it was installed by default. 'sudo apt-get install imagemagick'

    no didn't install Imagemagick, but in anycase i got Neverwinter nights installed and working, but it runs kinda slow. my previous problem was i just installed it in the default location which for some reason you don't have permissions to edit files, so i just changed the install location. also text on the game seems to be kinda mis-aligned...do you think Imagemagick would correct this or would this be a problem caused by my graphics card(ati 9200 128MB AGP)?
    *note*
    I am in the process of migrating from windows, so please be patient with me.

    Well, I would install imagemagick anyhow, since it's used by a lot of things.

    As far as the text goes, I don't know, I don't have an ATI card, though I do know if you don't have certain fonts installed, you will get no text at all. Make sure you have msttcorefonts installed.

    ( sudo apt-get install msttcorefonts )

    Worked great until I got to the part where it needed the cd key... apparently I lost the manual but was able to hold onto the box/cd fold out book. perhaps it will turn up around the same time I find where I backed up my old characters...

    Re: HOWTO: Installing Neverwinter Nights Platinum

    I'm getting this error message when the script tries to access disk 2 on my cdrom drive:

    Cannot read "/media/cdrom/disk2.zip".
    Please check that disk 2 is in /media/cdrom
    Press Enter to continue.

    I've got two dvd/cd drives, I've tried changing the path to cdrom0 and cdrom1, doesn't work. Nautilus displays the contents, but that's just it.

    Any ideas?

    Re: HOWTO: Installing Neverwinter Nights Platinum

    Does anyone have the install script saved that they could mirror for me? It seems the install-nwn.sh has been removed from the host, and I need to reextract the game For some reason, installing from the Bioware download pack isn't working for me, but the script worked great last time I did it. Hopefully someone kept it around...

    Thanks!
