My hardware is CPU Athlon X2 6000+ & videocard HIS HD 5670 IceQ 512MB (ATI Radeon 5670), OS is Windows XP SP3, and I`ve same trouble NWN crash on start: Installed NWN couple of days ago and it refuses to run no matter what I do. I have tried almost everything: update DirectX 9c, windowed mode, change the "safemovie", mentioned here ati ogl dll for NWN Explorer 1.1, downgrade ATI drivers, edit game shortcut to point to +TestNewModule "xyz", disabling the sound, change the resolution... It`s all was helpless... What a disaster!
But! After some googling (sorry for _._ and absence link to finded original post, this forum does not allow me insert any links), I just renamed nwmain_._exe to anything else (game_._exe, for example) and...IT WORKS NOW!
Very strange and very simple workaround, but it work for me. I`am impressed...
