Some Technical Difficulties (STD)



  • That's right, I have STD.

    Basically sometime last week, NWN stopped launching. One day I was toolsetting, and testing stuff IG. Two days later, NWN could not launch.

    I tried running the launcher instead of the .exe, both as Administrator, and since it didn't seem to fix itself after a while I just did a full re-install. After the reinstall, though, instead of telling me "NWN has stopped working correctly" at launch, it tells me there is a compatibility issue. I went to Troubleshoot Compatibility and used the recommended settings, but it still doesn't work - it tells me to contact Bioware Corp. I've been running NWN on this PC/OS for almost 2 years now, and now it does this.

    Can anyone help?



  • Did you try running it in WinXP compatibility mode after the reinstall?



  • Nwn crashes every time i start it unless i move the mouse up when starting it. (crazy i know) i got no idea why, maybe you need to do the same >.>



  • same thing happened to me… I had to fiddle with graphics settings, switch GFX card back and forth (two in one machine) and then change compatibility/admin mode around. Now it works for no plausible reason.

    My advice?

    Fiddle about.



  • Do you have the 1.69 critical rebuild patch?

  • My NWN issues stems from my video card drivers. I have a Radeon HD5850 and I have to use old drivers or else it crashes upon opening just like yours. I have the same problem with a few other games, but don't bother to upgrade since CoA is my main game.



  • I don't have "Run in Compatibility Mode" as an option for NWN, at least not anymore.

    The video driver thing makes sense since I recently did an update on them (though I did run NWN since then, up until last week). This is annoying, cause I don't know how to revert drivers, or rather which one to revert to.

    Thanks for the information though.
