    NWN no text, get's stuck

    Hello all,

    I am using the latest version of Lubuntu 64bit OS, and I am having problems with NWN.
    I followed all available instructions online (bioware's sites and few others) and I got the game itself to work. But I seem to have a problem.
    I don't see any text within the game main menu, and also when I try to start a campaign the entire game freezes which forces me to reboot the system.

    I am using the latest AMD drivers. Please help =]

    Edit: I was able to fix the fonts problem, But I don't understand the cause of it.
    the solution was to move the entire game folder to usr/share/games folder.
    Can anyone explain why?

    Another issue I am having is that movies don't work even after what the guide says.
    Another issue I am having is that the game only runs via the sudo ./nwmain command. Otherwise I don't see text again, and if I try to run the ./nwn file then the game runs without sound.

    Your problem is one I've never heard before; I have been running NWN for 5 years from my /home/oldrocker99/Games/nwn/ folder. I have never had any font problem at all.

    You might try this:

    sudo chown yourusername:yourusername /usr/share/games/nwn

    Just to make sure that everything there belongs to you.
