CreepingDeath1907: i have every deps for with movies option but it says you're lack of gcc multilib and other deps.?

vv221: Here is the full list of deps for building the package with movies management:

fakeroot gcc gcc-multilib icoutils libelf-dev:i386 libsdl1.2-dev unar

vv221:
Yeah,i installed libelf-dev i386.That was the missing one.

Then i succesfully installed the game with 1.69 tar.g and new script.Unfortunately game asks for cd key.

Where is it?Nwn diamond in my library,but there is no sign of it.

To find your keys:
_find Neverwinter Nights Diamond in your library
_open the "More" menu
_click "serial keys"

These keys are unique and work for multiplayer.

Firstly, bravo on this. I was shocked at how easy this was to follow. I opted for the no-movies approach, and did a fresh download from GOG on a freshly installed Ubuntu 16.04 64 Bit on a new SSD. Part of the shock came from how everything seemed to just work step after step after step. I will admit that my first attempt to run the second last command ("as root: dpkg somethingsomething") gave a dependency error, but googling that error got me to run something that ends in install -f and that seemed to solve things, and then I was able run the game.

So I did some testing, and was able to get in game, change the resolution from 800x600 (or whatever it defaulted to) to 1920x1080 and that was a thrill.

Here's where I noticed something unusual though. When I adjust the Texture slider under video options, it responds, and lets me reposition the slider fine, but hitting Apply has no effect. Thus, I can't seem to get the game to use the high-quality textures, rather than the low quality ones. I even took a look at the nwn.ini, both in the /usr/local/share/game directory as well as in ~/.config/ directory, played with the arguments for texture packs, no change.

So, my "problem" seems pretty minor in comparison to the rest of the challenges I've read from others in this entire thread, but I wondered if anyone else came up against something like this, and how they solved it? It would be nice to be able to get the high-end textures, or, even change it on the fly like I have been able to when running under wine.

Next question, now that this install is working as well as it is - would it be weird to drop the windows executables into the directory and then try running it under wine, mostly to compare performance? And by "would it be weird". I guess what I really mean is, would that actually work to run this same installation under wine...?

First of all, thank you for your nice feedback ;)

If you want to try comparing the performances between native and WINE engines, I think it might be easier to do it from Ganni1987’s custom patch, as the ./play.it method does not include all needed files from the Windows version.

The praise is well deserved. If your talents are or will ever be involved in the development of a game, or even a mod for NWN, and you need voice acting, you can have me for free - that's how much I appreciate your contribution to this game and its community.

The WINE comparison was more for my geeky curiosity than anything else, though. What would really make my day would be playing with the high-end texture packs. Can I presume I am the first user to encounter this issue of being "stuck" with the low-res texture packs?

I’ll give a try to texture resolution switching when I have a bit of free time, I’ll keep you tuned of my results ;)
Update

Neverwinter Nights
Script updated to ./play.it 2, bringing Arch Linux support amongst other nice things.
