Yay! Happy birthday. Much <3-ness.
I was reminded to take screenies too late to get what other people said or even the entire group. My apologies to those involved, if your words and presence were missed.
Many people said many good things about him. It was a beautiful, impromptu, memorial service.
At one point, more than half the server was there. Much crying, sadness and anger to be had.
You will be missed, little guy. Wish I had been there to see the end.
I have a different take on this than others.
Yes, I agree that you should not do what is boring to you, but I am the kind of person that will suffer through something they dislike in order to bring fun to others. There is a point when enough is enough, but it takes a good long while for me to get there.
In the end, I am a giver and will endure for the greater good of the player base in the hopes that they will return the favor some day.
PS. I don't like PvP either.
I rarely have to drive down this road and in the last three days I have gone down it at least four times, seeing this sign each day. Finally, I couldn't take it anymore, pulled over and took a photo.

I don't get or see any XP mode
Right click on your desktop icon for NWN. Select Properties. Go to the Compatability tab. Check the box under compatability mode and select Windows XP Service Pack 2 from the drop down menu.
If it helps or not, no idea. But that is what I run it in.
I run Vista as well and after one of the updates (don't remember which one) my game would crash when I tried to click past the movie intros to get to the menu screen.
I was watching in IRC and someone mentioned how to turn the movies off. Went in and did that and now it doesn't crash anymore.
It does, on occasion, not respond when I get to the menu screen. Meaning its there but the buttons don't highlight when I mouse over them. When that happens, I just use the windows button (or tab out, if that works for you) to go back to my desk top then click on the game in the tool bar to open it again. Then the buttons are responsive and I can continue.
Now, on how to turn the movies off… Open your nwn.ini and under [display options] add
Disable Intro Movies=1
Save and close.
Hope that helps or at least might keep you from having to sit through the movie over and over. :)
