Hi, I'm trying to play Neverwinter nights and I keep having error when running the test for the vcard. Also, when I start the game, all cinematics are grey, and when all cinematics are done, it close the game. I looked on the web site of nwn, it say that I need an opengl 1.2 compatible card. By looking at amiga driver, these are opengl 1.1...

Any help?

Tks

NWN WILL work with the voodoo 5 but just barely. get the latest update from the neverwinter nights web site and install this. then to run the game you MUST run the desktop res one or two notches HIGHER than the game will be running eg. desktop 1024x768 and game 800x600 etc.... at this point the title screens will not come up anymore (black screen with music) but the game will now show up. you just have to space bar your way through the titles..... you can run the nwnsetup proggy from outside the game by double clicking on it. after the update to the game. the "hardware/software" mouse thingy comes to you as a checkbox in the setup proggy. to get the game to run at a lower res than the desktop, the setup proggy must be run and slections made then exited correctly to set up the games .ini's. getting coulorless's OGL addon for the 3dfx 761 ICD helps a bit with the game too! good luck. by the way, I am running the 3dhq beta 10's in 98se.

Well, try it with desktop refresh rate at 60Hz. For XP users, this game runs quite slow and is easiest with the Microsoft drivers (although I've heard of people getting it to run under Amigamerlin drivers).

hmmm... now there is another problem...

I don't see my cursor...

to enter the game, I must press space, if I click mouse, I will see one of the intro movie and I will crash... but then, no mouse in game (well, it's there, but I don't see it)

You need to change the "Enable Hardware Mouse" line from "1" to "0" in the NWN.ini

by the way, what is that?

It should be noted that this is MesaFX to which batracio refers, not OpenGL. It is a seperate library that takes the place of OpenGL, and supports more functions of the OpenGL API than the Amigamerlin or original 3dfx drivers did.

rolo1,
I'm getting page faults when trying to run NWN with the new MESA 0.51 openGL32.dll.

"access violation at address 00000258 read of address FFFFFFFF"

a couple of other address's too. 00001400 and 00000403

the game then crashes with another error.

I CAN get the NWNconfig to work, but I get the access violations and click through them THEN the triangle comes up, which it never did before without a double image/crash with the 761 ICD.
