Definitely try to run it on your current system and see how it performs.  Alternatively, look at Ubuntu which it appears NWN EE runs on natively. Then I would use Wine to run your on-prem Office software. No costs above the NWN EE costs.

I didn't have much luck with wine to play Diamond, but I found a slick program called "Porting Kit" that uses wine wrappers but it's all tweaked for the game.  Hope it helps...

Wine runs diamond out of the box.

I only run linux.... so I run nwn original on linux natively, as well as Neverwinter Nights Enhanced Edition Digital Delux (x2) on my machine (you can run about 10 copies of the game before you can start to slow down a geforce 1070). I've got an optiplex 745 slim i use as a server, you can play nwn on it run 2 nwn servers, and possibly EE on it if you buy a slim card. not sure if you have the slim models or not
Wonder if cheaper to buy Win7 (x2) and two graphics cards?  We'd need miscrosoft office for Word and Excell.
I would -not- buy windows 7, you're going to end up in the same situation down the road. Windows 7 is near it's EOL... If i was you I'd get Lubuntu (you don't want to run unity on that old hardware trust me) and run vmware for your M$ office suite. you can install and run windows xp and your office using virtual box or vmware or qemu.
you can run MS office in wine, and Excell. Open office can handle anything they put out I believe, but I wouldn't use Open Office, I'd use libreoffice

Ask A Gamemaster / Re: Chakar's Will
« on: March 08, 2019, 10:07:52 pm »
Chakar was Glitch'nich's first teacher, and Glitch'nich learned a ton about fighting from him. After the formal training in the arena, Chakar and Glitch'nich traveled many places. In now what I know was Chakar's later life, they traveled the deep together. It was only about a week between their last trip to the deep and Chakar's demise.

On the OOC side of things, I asked Chakar's advice before taking any levels.

Glitch'nich doesn't need another house, but would have been honored if his mentor would have confered an heirloom to him after the way of tea.

Glitch'nich had a lot of respect and admiration for Chakar even though he was a human and was not aware that chakar was so close to death.
Glitch'nich was shocked (as was I) to see that Chakar died (because he'd never said anything about it) and very displeased. With his mentor gone glitch has shut a part of himself down. He travels less, and creates more.

At some point in Glitch's relationship with Chakar he was told that if Chakar died he would inherit Chakar's belongings as Chakar had no offspring to give them to and Glitch was his only apprentice.

I had to remind Chazzler 12 times to post about the will after Chakar's death... so it's no surprise that he didn't actually remember to write one before his death.
I don't think about such things myself, as it's a fantasy world and most people don't think about this sort of thing until after the fact.

If such things were allowed in character here, Glitch'nich would have gone through the house to find something to remember Chakar by after hearing of his death. However that would be viewed as stealing, a bannable here.

I am not sure what the bond from Chakar's side was for glitch, but glitch would always look for chakar, and wish for him when he wasn't around. (Now I understand why he wasn't around much, SS and all.)

What ever the decision is about the will, may it be fair to all.

Should be fixed now, script was updated dynamically. After the whirlwind you will need to re-engage an enemy.

Thanks Orth, this is fixed.
On a side note it might need a bit of timing tweeking for layo... or I could just be lagging.
I'll let you know after far more use cases.

Fixed Bugs / Re: Weird & Mind Immune Monsters

Fire Giants (should not be) / (are not) immune to mind spells anywhere in the world but layonara (if they are immune to them here)

Fire Giants in the OC are not immune to mind spells
They are immune to fire, but vulnerable to cold... they have a will save of 5... no immunity to mind spells, not on their skin, their weapon, or their armor.... not granted by a script, special ability, feat, or item.
there is one fire giant blueprint in the OC that has a will save of 8.

To see this you can open any of the OC modules by copying them from the nwm directory to the modules directory of your NWN install... rename all of them to have the extension .mod and then you can open them in the toolset and edit/look as much as your heart desires...

Chapter 1 does not have any fire giants in the custom pallete or the module
Chapter 1E does not have any fire giants in the custom pallete (didn't search the module)
Chapter 2 does not have any fire giants in the custom pallete (didn't search the module)
Chapter 2E does not have any fire giants in the custom pallete (didn't search the module)
Chapter 3 has fire giants in the custom pallete
Chapter 4 does not have any fire giants in the custom pallete (didn't search the module)

If fire giants are immune to mind spells on layo, it's the only place in the world they are immune to them

you can search the module and look for a special case if you want using edit -> find instance and look for the tags, or the blueprint resref (required to place an instance in the module) of the creature you're looking for.


General Discussion / Re: F keys not working in Wine
« on: January 05, 2019, 02:28:22 am »
Function keys do not work

If your F<num> keys do not work, this is probably because the kernel driver for the keyboard has defaulted to using the media keys and requiring you to use the Fn key to get to the F<num> keys. To change the behavior temporarily, append 2 to /sys/module/hid_apple/parameters/fnmode.

# echo 2 > /sys/module/hid_apple/parameters/fnmode

To make the change permanent, set the hid_apple fnmode option to 2:


options hid_apple fnmode=2

To apply the change to your initial ramdisk, in your mkinitcpio configuration (usually /etc/mkinitcpio.conf), make sure you either have modconf included in the HOOKS variable or /etc/modprobe.d/hid_apple.conf in the FILES variable. You would then need to regenerate the initramfs.

if you need more help I can help you... I compile my own kernels and everything else in linux myself.
I don't personally run Arch as a main distro, I run Gentoo, but they are related and I do get a lot of help for my own problems from Arch wikis. I have run nearly every distribution of linux. What distribution are you running on that mac? Ubuntu? Yellow Dog? Debian? (can't remember all the others that support mac (those may be old ppc versions of mac and not the new intel))

General Discussion / Re: Help with PRCs
« on: January 05, 2019, 02:23:31 am »
That is what I was after.
Now my question is "What is an updated biography"?
Searching in that post I can't find any definition of it.
Is this the same as a 2 week CDT?
I am not aware of any active shifters, only active druids on the server.
What are the steps I should take to be qualified to submit a request to take a CDQ and shifter levels?

I'm looking for the information on PRCs, I've been to and the search feature doesn't seem to work and I can't find any information on what i'd need to do to take shifter levels.

Any help would be great.

@Jadewillow, I can test out the Mac osX if you like.

Yep, you can see here some of the info I was compiling for it when during beta. A lot of that is outdated, there have been further developments and new things, eg toolset works again in Linux with Wine. I meant to update later, but there was still a weekly dev patch at the time so I couldn't keep up :)

You can't use it to play on Layo, which is not running on EE and is still on version 1.69. I think this is still true:
I'd encourage anyone that wants to support NWN's future to buy EE (it's worth noting that Steam takes a big bite out of that if you get it from there), though obviously if you are only interested in NWN insofar as it involves Layo, don't rush to the bank because I think you'll be alright until further notice :)

I'm not a big fan of the OC, so if I were someone whose only interest in NWN was Layo and the OC, I would not buy it or recommend it -- provided I could actually run 1.69, which is of course not true for a lot of people on modern systems. I love NWN though, so I'm happy it was picked up and is being actively developed, again - especially by people pulled from the modding community.

What problems are people having on modern systems? We've got 1.69 running on modern systems here, core i7, nvidia 1070 ti and gtx, windows 10... haven't had any issues... I keep hearing about issues, but i've never seen them... can you explain?
