Difficulties Installing Project Q 2.0

Post by eatmylazor on Fri Jul 04, 2014 3:28 pm

Hey, let me just start off by saying that this server looks amazing. I really want to give it a try myself and perhaps bring some friends along with me. I've seen some of the screenshots and some of them seem very atmospheric and detailed, and this is probably due to the custom haks on the server and Project Q. I've got CEP Installed, however I've been having difficulty installing Project Q. Every time I run q_update_v20 áor q_force_update, even as administrator, they always come up saying that NWmain.exe could not be found even though I'm running it in the NWN folder with NWmain right next to it. I've tried to look for solutions online but I haven't come up with anything. If anyone of you could help me this I would be very grateful. Need I install an older version of Project Q? There's lots of installation instructions for older versions of áProject Q but this newer version seems to have less.

Welcome to Aenea, lazor Smile

We may have to do some back and forth Q&A but I am sure we can get you sorted.

My initial theory, based on the screenshot (very, very helpful, thank you) is that you have the q_upater.exe located right in the root of your NWN folder.

Where I believe it actually needs to be is in a folder called 'Q_updater' which is in the NWN folder, as seen here:


Try getting the Q_updater and all its files put into their own Q_updater folder inside your NWN folder and see if that gets it going.

Ah! That's what I was doing wrong. I guess I read the instructions incorrectly. Thanks for the help and the quick reply Dave! The updater is working now, my only trouble is those broken links for downloading the haks. If someone could perhaps host the files either off of this website or via. a media sharing site I'd be all set to play!

I will compress and upload those older haks to my website server with the rest, since it looks like the problem at the old Vault won't be fixed at least until Monday.á I'll post again here when the files are ready to download.

Regarding the missing haks; you can get them by downloading this file which I uploaded just now as a temp fix. Smile

I can connect to the server fine now, but I've been experiencing crashing whenever I access certain NPC shops. I think an item in their shop is causing my game to crash. I wonder if Project Q installed itself correctly, because it appears to have stopped at this point and doesn't continue to patch anymore files.

Just let it sit there and see if it finishes. when I ran it, it seemed like it stalled a few times, and they started back up again fine.

I had to not only run the force update as admin, but also set some compatibility settings to Windows XP. Working perfectly now, fixed the crashing.

I do not know if it's related, but on the BSN, PSMarie noted they were doing some file clean up on the server, and had even asked that people try to lay off the server until the 5th (today). That may have been part of the issue with not getting all the files up update right your first go at it.
