    I followed the given directions and experienced no problems, but, when I try to run NWN, nothing happens... it just sits there

    Re: HOWTO: Installing Neverwinter Nights Platinum

    Hey guys, NWN launches without a problem for me, however I can't get a movie thing to work...THis is what I get after typing './nwmovies_install.pl /usr/lib/libSDL-1.2.so.0' :

    NOTICE: NWMovies: Executing: gcc -m32 -I/emul/ia32-linux/usr/include -L/emul/ia32-linux/usr/lib -L/emul/ia32-linux/lib -L/lib32 -L/usr/lib32 -Wall -Inwmovies/libdis -g -fPIC -shared -Wl,-soname,libdisasm.so nwmovies/libdis/libdis.c nwmovies/libdis/i386.c -o nwmovies/libdis/libdisasm.so

    NOTICE: NWMovies: Please check for errors above

    I use 64bit, though it might be a problem, since nwmovies manual says to install "appropriate packages" if I use 64bit, but it didn't specify which...
    Any ideas?

    Unpacked it all, launched "fixinstall" and edited a script as instructed here. Actually, the script works either way: by deleting "./lib" or by addind a custom line of resources location.

    Re: HOWTO: Installing Neverwinter Nights Platinum

    here:
    u need these files...

    belfg0
    libelfg0_dev
    libsdl1.2_debian
    libsdl1.2_dev
    libsdl-mixer1.2
    libsdl-gfx1.2-4
    libsdl-gfx1.2-dev
    libsdl1.2debian-all --not needed...maybe...

    after searching a lot i found that info, though i havent been able to get the game to run yet, so.. good luck

    also, dont forget this, afterwards...
    export SDL_AUDIODRIVER=alsa, esd, or whatever u use.
    for me it was '=alsa'.

    hope my synthax makes sence

    also, try the new nwnmovies4 patch:http://home.woh.rr.com/nwmovies/nwmo...2.v4rc1.tar.gz

    or look here:http://nwn.bioware.com/forums/viewto...&forum=72&sp=0

    Re: HOWTO: Installing Neverwinter Nights Platinum

    Hey, using this thread I was able to get the Diamond Edition installed minus the Premium content. I get stuck on the KingmakerSetup.exe part though. Everytime I try to run that symlink he has me create it runs and then I get a popup message about not being able to find the game, etc. Anyone know the fix for this?

    Re: HOWTO: Installing Neverwinter Nights Platinum

    Hey all. Have a rather annoying issue here. Had this working on gusty and then did a clean installation of hardy and now I can't install NWN.

    The problem araises when I try to copy ANY file from the cd. It throws me errors like :


    Code:
    bardic@ubuntu:~/Games/nwn$ unzip /media/cdrom_/Data_linux.zip
    Archive:  /media/cdrom_/Data_linux.zip
      End-of-central-directory signature not found.  Either this file is not
      a zipfile, or it constitutes one disk of a multi-part archive.  In the
      latter case the central directory and zipfile comment will be found on
      the last disk(s) of this archive.
    note:  /media/cdrom_/Data_linux.zip may be a plain executable, not an archive
    unzip:  cannot find zipfile directory in one of /media/cdrom_/Data_linux.zip or
            /media/cdrom_/Data_linux.zip.zip, and cannot find /media/cdrom_/Data_linux.zip.ZIP, period.
    or

    Code:
    bardic@ubuntu:~/Games/nwn$ unzip -o /media/cdrom_/data/XP1.zip
    Archive:  /media/cdrom_/data/XP1.zip
    file #1:  bad zipfile offset (lseek):  0
    file #2:  bad zipfile offset (local header sig):  38
      inflating: ambient/al_mg_x0rui2.wav  error:  zipfile read error
    Any idea's why this is happening? I'd love to play NWN again.

    Re: HOWTO: Installing Neverwinter Nights Platinum

    First of all, excellent guide! I was able to install NWN with ease. Now, the main problem I am having is the fonts are not visible. I installed the ms core fonts and restarted, ran the script and I get the main screen with all of the buttons but no text inside?
    Also, when I was entering the cd keys it only took me as far as the SOU key and never asked me for the hordes key. Finally, I did not download any patches as I was hoping to use the auto updater but this was a mistake I think. Any suggestions as to how I can update to the 1.68 patch now after the install?
    Sorry for all of the questions, I am really enjoying Kubuntu and if I can get this to work it may be the end of having to have a dual boot machine!

    Thanks

    Hiya
    Firstly, thanks for the guide, it helped me a lot.

    After some problems here and there I finally managed to install the game, the diamond edition that is.

    I continued to follow the guide, created a desktop icon, installed the movie thing and than made the necessary adjustements.

    When I tried to run the game it starst, as in my screen goes black and then I just go back to desktop, nothing crashes/gets stuck, no error warnings or so, just, black screen and than back...

    Hope someone can help me fix this, really love to get this up and running again
