    NWN in Ubuntu 12.04

    Hello All

    Am I The only one here still playing Neverwinter Nights?

    anyways, if any of you know how to install it from a windows installation, and where to get the linux files and everything, please tell me. I would like a guide, used to use the one written by artificial intelligence, but can't seem to find the gwos.org website anymore.

    I appreciate any help given, i love this game.

    NWN can be installed natively but the installer is old and outdated. When you use it there are missing dependences.

    I use Wine then rename the Movies folder to Movies1 to disable them.

    Works for me.

    Goto the Ubuntu Software Center. Type wine in the search bar. Install wine. Put your NWN cd in. Right click on setup.exe and select open with wine.

    After you install NWN goto your home folder. Under view select show hidden. find the .wine folder .wine > drive_c > Program Files > NWN then right click on the movies folder and rename it movies1

    Play NWN

    Im gonna install it in wine, seeing as the only other guide I can find is for a CD version of Diamond edition, which i do not posses.

    WTF Tae-Kwon-Do stands for World Tae-Kwon-Do Federation, it follows the Kukkikwon (i believe its called) Teachings. Other styles include for an example ITF, International Tae-Kwon-Do Federation.

    Tae-Kwon-Do is a martial art, as far as i know the most widespread one. its origins is in Korea.
